Today I want to talk you about how to effectively flip your next hostess and turn her into your next amazing recruit!!

First, check out this video below. Then you’ll find some tips, tricks, and files below:

One of my focuses in my business is ALWAYS recruiting my hostesses. And this is not something that is a hardcore, in your face, pushy kind of deal. This is a well thought out PLAN of placing strategic recruiting tools into various parts of my hostess coaching.

There is a BIG misconception that recruiting your hostesses will kill your sales. NOT TRUE. Let me show you my stats over one year. Now, TWENTY of these recruits were hostesses who “flipped” their party into their launch party.

You have to put the recruiting brochure in EVERY hostess packet. Thirty-One has done a fantastic job with this brochure and YOU should be using it!


I have 2 steps BEFORE my hostesses party.

Hostess mailing #1, they get a postcard and a nail file. They get this 2 weeks before their party.

Hostess mailing #2, they get a postcard and a magnetic bookmark. They get this 1 week before their party.

Mailing #1 is in this picture below on the TOP (one is for catalog party and one is for home show)

Mailing #2 is on the BOTTOM of the picture below (one is for home show and one is for catalog show)

Sprinkle some love…

As she’s taking orders and doing a fantastic job…”you are doing AWESOME! Your friends are loving the products. You would be SO good at this job!”

And leave it at that. You’re simply planting seeds.


Checking in to see if you got my postcard on flipping your party. Have you given any thought into turning THIS party into your launch party?


At the party…use the recruiting flier and speak about the hostess personally. So…if Jane signed up tonight, she gets THIS kit, she gets to pick any Start Swell kit she wants, AND she is going to earn all the commission from her own party! Anyone ready to set up your launch party for next month? Cause I want to come and help you do it! I laminate this file and hand to EACH guest as I walk through my recruiting portion. And if you would like to download this file, here you go.

So let’s get to work and book some parties and flip some hostesses ladies! We’ve got a trip to Dominican Republic to earn!!
