Being Prepared is half the battle. When you have the tools you need in place, you are more likely to hold parties. Your goal is that both you and your Hostess get the maximum rewards! Prepare 10-12 Hostess Packets - If you already have a favorite Hostess plan, please stick with it. Be sure to include a business card and look book. You may put them together in cute cello bags with ribbon, a fun folder, or even a cute envelope will work.
