I've only been doing TW since the beginning of July, and have decided I was meant to be a TW consultant lol  None of my parties have been under $ 800 and 3 of them have been over $1000, I'm excited, I never earned this much stuck in an office looking at 4 walls.

IMO it's great, although I am only new, maybe the excitement will wear off, but for now I am loving it.

We had Sessions today here in Melb!  Was great to see all the new things and get lots of pressies.  Not going to tell you all the secrets though... you'll have to wait!

Such a big day though, I'm exhausted (just woke up from snoozing on the couch).

ohh don't talk to me about sessions, I am sad!

We booked a holiday a year ago and we leave on Friday, I'm in Qld and our sessions is on Saturday sad.gif

I know I would have ended up with alot of great stuff boohoo to me.

Can't wait to see the new catalogue.

So how is everyone going???

Alison - have you had any of your parties yet?  How was your holiday???

Tammy - did you enjoy Sessions?

Anyone else been to Sessions?  Melbourne's was Saturday - was such a long day but I feel more motivated now.  Great to have a new catalogue too!  I'm now trying to sell off some stock from my kit to make way for some new products.

And just in case anyone asks, no, not telling any of the new releases yet.  They made us promise to wait until all the states had their sessions.  Tammy tried hard though LOL!

Hi, I too have slightly been thinking of getting into TW. Can I just ask does it interfere with you r family assist payments. I am asking because next year I am going to take a year off work to hopefully have our 2nd child, and have budgeted with family assist. So I am just wondering if I have to re-budget if I do sell TW.

Thanks in advance

I've just PM'd you some info - hope it helps!

Edited cause I just realised I didn't answer all your question in the PM.  You can pay the kit off upfront if you like, the majority seem to use their commission so they are not out of pocket initially.  Though it is really up to you how you would like to do things.

Neen, would you mind sending me a PM about starting up as a TW consultant too?  I've been thinking about doing it now that I'm at home and I love TW as a product and it would be something I probably would be enthused about selling

An earlier post mentioned that some managers don't really like casual salespeople, but that is what I'm really looking to do.
Is it possible to do only a party a month?
How much is the start up kit?
How much do you need to sell each month?
If I wanted to buy my own TW, how much would I be paying?

Thanks for any info.

Hi guys

Ok - I have held about 9 parties now - dated a whole ONE sad.gif
I went to sessions and had a ball - even qualified for some freebies which surprised me being so new and all but was very motivating. Wonder if I can make it to the Managers conference in Adelaide in Feb wink.gif

Anyway - I have spoken to Neen (thanx for the tips lovie) but was wanting to see what else anyone does when they run out of parties sad.gif I am feeling really down about it considering my selling has been going so well till now.

I'm becoming a consultant next month (give me time to organise parties etc), and have been told that it doesn't effect your family allowance as it is classed as a hobby.  Years ago they tried to tax it but by the time you work out deductions etc, the tax dept got a huge headache from it all and decided it's a hobby!  You've to earn BIG $$ to get taxed, and I think once your a manager because you get a car you get taxed.
SIL joined in Januaray, and was only going to do until March, and she's still going.  So far she's sold about $28000 so she's gotten a fair commisions and STACKS of bonuses (gorgeous handbags, quilt cover sets, Tupperchef stuff etc) and none of it has effected her FA.

Tanya, to get my parties I just asked a few friends, a couple said yes straight away, another 2 were iffy, so I pointed out that all they had to get was $250 in sales to start getting a 10% commission and that getting $250 wouldn't be a hard thing.  Then I'd show them the catalogue and show them the big host rewards (the Alfresco Entertainer Set, the BBQ set, and the Illusions Set) and pointed out that to get a choice of the first 2 all they needed was $595 in sales and two friends willing to throw a party for them.  I also mentioned to a few that I can get them catalogues early so that way they could mail them to family and friends who live far away and they might be willing to help them get to their host goal.
Also, a few poeple thought 'daggy T/W party', and then I told them how parties have been revamped and we can play games, do a cooking demo using the T/W products so they can see them in action, and that if they prefer an afternoon party or evening party we could make it a c*cktail party.  All they had to do was provide the ingredients and we show them how to make it.  Since I am just starting out I have pointed out that I would prefer something simple such as drinks, but later if they would like to have another party when the new catalogue comes out (Autumn/Winter), then I'd try something more complicated, I'm hoping this will get me future bookings from them.
You could try approaching schools/pre schools/child care centres as a fund raiser.  I have one school on my list as a start up party, just by asking the P&C president, who also said, if the rest of the P&C didn't want to host a party, she'd have one herself.
When asking for parties if you can get a copy of a catalogue take that with you and let people see what they are able to get, and they might look at something and say 'Oh, x might like that, maybe she'll come to a party'.

I am having trouble working out exactly how much I have earnt as its my second part time job I have to tax myself dont I ?

Also I actually travelled the 2hrs I had to where my family are and had 2 old school friends host parties for me - was worth the trip - had $3000 worth of sales in one week and my parents were up that way so they baby sat too original.gif was worth it to me and then I dropped the products back up there 2 weeks later and got to see all my friends and family again original.gif

But I am still not getting follow up dates sad.gif I have a few friends that have said they will have parties in Oct but what the heck do I do for Sept sad.gif

Its really stressing and upsetting me.

Alison, the big question is, are you asking people if they would like to have a party???  You must ask.  Ask everyone, don't pre-judge.  Some get offended if you don't ask and others are so pleased as they have never been asked before.  Doesn't mean they will all book but you don't get anywhere if you don't ask.  And of course don't show you are desperate for bookings, you'll scare people off.  You need to be confident and not pushy, once you get the hang of it people will book with you as they will see the benefits to themselves - who would pass up stacks of free Tupperware if all they have to do is have a few friends over and make a cake!

Have you tried some of the ideas I gave you over email?  Let me know how you are going with them.  I'll have a think about it and see if I can come up with anything else.
