Hey Demos Share Your Obstacles

Re: SU!: Hey Demos Share Your Obstacles

My challenge is to stay motivated! I get bored easily and have many interests. Staying focused on one hobby enough to make it a profitable business is what I struggle with. I have a great group of ladies that I have a monthly club with and I hold a few classes a month, but I don't see myself focused enough to really move up in the business.

I have trouble keeping Stampin’ Up! a priority.  Seems like my day job, housework, and taking care of my Granddaughter always get done first and then if there’s any time left over, Stamping gets done…

I tend to over prepare for classes. I get a head count two weeks in advance and cut card packets. Then two or three people cancel last minute and I am stuck with packets of cut card stock. This doesn't help when you're trying to make a profit but everyone does have fun.

My other obstacle is getting people to buy the products. I have many people who pay to make three cards and that's all they are nterested in. I do have six customers a month who are part of Stamp Club so I can count on that.

Renee,

PRE PAY!!  IF they pay for it ahead of time, like the two weeks, they
will either show up or let you know.

When I am doing classes, I have a rate change for Early sign up,
deadline sign up and late sign up.

Say you are charging $20 for the deadline class, charge $15 if they
are a week early, and $25 after the deadline.

Decide on how you will handle people who need to cancel. If early,
refund the money, if late, give them the supplies to use how they
want.

Renee Thompson

I've done the pre-pay for special things like Stamp a Stacks and it's worked well.

Maybe I should consider it for monthly classes too. Thanks.
