First Party Jitters...

Postby NightfallFashions » Fri Dec 30, 2005 5:54 pm

Well, our first party is nearing and I'm getting a bit nervous. My partner and I are working on our presentation, and the people who will be attending this party are good friends and acquaintances.

But I'm still nervous.

Anyone have any ideas/tales/comments about their first party? Any advice?

Soon you'll have no problem doing parties and not be nervous at all! The only tip I can think of is....they won't know if you forget to say something, or change the order of how you talk. Also, don't be afraid to use notecards. After 2 1/2 years I still do, it also helps to show people that your job is duplicatable. You don't want it to look too hard that people may be intimidated to try it themself!

Good luck!

I totally understand. Just try to be prepared. I made notes that I printed out for myself & kept nearby.

The first one is the hardest, after that, you'll be a pro! :D Good luck! :D

Oh my gooness do I feel bad!

We have been SO busy with everything lately that I have not had time to post back. Our first party was a huge success and everyone who came loved it. We both were a little nervous at first but then we just got over it and did great.

We have had four parties now and I feel we are getting better with each one. I love this business and am so glad to be doing such!

Thanks everyone for the great support!

*hugs*

Well I think the best way I over came my jitters was to just do it, lol. Before the party Iw as a mess but then as the presentation went along I just kind of forgot about being so nervous.

It also helped me to try and focus on my presentation and go with the flow! I am still a bit nervous bit soon as the party starts it's just so much fun I'm not worried anymore.
