  • I am booked and keep booking more. My Arbonne business booms every holiday season and then it flows into the next year. We offer products that are only out for the holiday season that people wait for. The best is, we have consumable products that people need to reorder. I get so many reorders every month and I don't even have to do anything...they order online themselves with their own pin and ID. Most of my people are preferred clients and get 20% off all year, so it's not as expensive and once they try our products, they LOVE them.

  • My schedule is full from now until Christmas. I am getting calls daily to see if I have an openings for parties ( always offer book parties which works out well because I don't need to be anywhere) or to purchase their Christmas gifts. I work full time and even have a few individual shows scheduled during my lunch hours. Crazy but I love it. I am an independent distributor with Scent Sations(Mia Bella Candles).

  • mommy2ys maybe because tupperware is soo expensive. I love it and I go to the websight and pick out everything I really want then back out because I just can't afford that kind of stuff right now. Then get the cheap stuff that WILL not last at walmart. I hope your business picks up. I do love tupperware.

  • Our books are selling faster every year. Especially this years book on Stress because the topic is timely.

    Many products are seasonal and as much we everyone would like their products to be bought as holiday gifts, people have ideas already in mind what they consider a gift. So some direct sales products sell more at different time of the year. Plus it all somes doen to the dedication of the person selling the product. Consistent effort = consistent and increasing sales. Hit and miss effort or sporatic focus makes for slower sales and soetimes loss of sales.

    Wishing you all awesome and continuing success
