I've been working with some new partners who joined, showing them around the company site, the team site, team calls, etc.

And working with some Leaders on my Team who are ready to achieve 5K Diamond.

It's been wonderful helping others achieve success!!

The biggest thing that happened this week is I booked a Mystery Hostess Girl's Night out with the Parents School Association at my daughter's school! There will be over 100 Moms invited!! Booked that yesterday at a booth I had a table at.
Other things I am doing include, finding more craft fairs for fall/winter; Halloween treat bags to all Moms I meet that night, setting a date for a Holiday open house and the list goes on and on!

This week I posted newspaper ads, local and out of area, called past customers to give them my October Specials. Send my email contacts a list of events I will be attending this fall.
