6.  Goals for the month
It is time to set some goals for the Month of May.  If you haven’t done it yet it is time to get it done. 
A personal note on goals:  At the end of each month I make sure my next month is set up with parties and events. While I am doing that I set some goals for the next month.  In April I set some goals that I thought were pretty optimistic but I had a couple of really great parties set up and I was confident that if I worked hard I would make them.   Do you want to know what they were?  $3,500 in personal sales and to sign up 2 new consultants.   Now after making those goals I got to work.  I did everything that I could in April to reach them.  I had two parties cancel, one not until the day of the party.  I thought there was no way I would hit the goals but I got creative and tried some new things.  On the 30th,  I had an online order place for the remaining $600.00 I needed to reach my goal.  I was ecstatic.  I really believe that I reached my goal because I set it.  If I had not set it there is no way I would have reached it.   I did sign up two consultants as well.  
Please take a minuet right now and set two goals for May.   I would love to know what they are, if you are willing to share send me an e-mail with your goals for the month.

Training:  Last week I asked you what you needed more training on.  Here are some of the questions  and their answers. (my plan was to answer all of them but I have a sick baby and I only got two of them finished)
1.       How to send mass e-mail so it only show the recipient’s name:  
What you need to do is in the "To" line put your own e-mail address. This will send the e-mail to you.  Then you need to press the "add bcc" button.  This adds a blind carbon copy.  Put all of you e-mail contacts in that line. This way they see the message as if it was sent only to them. 
2.       More recipes that have been successful at parities from me and from other consultants
For me the most successful recipes are: chicken salad sandwiches, cornbread, and brownies with strawberries on the top.  Whenever I try something else I always get asked “Didn’t you bring chicken salad?’
Here are a few recipes that have been successful for other consultants:

a.       Minestrone Soup: 1/4 cup all vegies - corn, celery, onions, green beans, peas, carrots and green peppers. 4 T. tomato pdr 1/2 t. Italian spices 1 teaspoon parsley 1 can beef broth 1 T. beef boullion 6 cups water I add about 1/2 cup pasta too. All goes into a mason jar and at parties I have the hostess have the water and can of beef boullion to a simmer. While i am explaining the food it is cooking (about 10 min). This makes about 1/2 cup for about 8 people. Recipe from Cathy Sera
b.      We served vanilla ice cream and topped it with pieces of coconut macaroon and raspberry sauce. We made the raspberry sauce with 1 cup raspberries, reconstituted with warm water, and 1/4 cup sugar. From Jennifer Balmer
c.       Taco salad recipe, using taco TVP dolled up with fd corn, cheese blend, extra tomato powder and whatever else you want to add. Serve on taco chip with a dollop of THRIVE sour cream. Cures skepticism about TVP. From Holly Cooley
d.       Salsa:  I made up this recipe after being asked by a customer if it was possible.
