that demand your immediate attention to visit a website and redeem a coupon.
Now, for a limited time only, Park Lane’s got ‘em!
These gorgeous Jewelry Lover’s Cards are meant for anybody and everybody

Nancy Summers, National Director, said “I would give
one to anyone who COMPLIMENTED my jewelry and I
would have no problem walking up to someone who
looked FASHIONABLE...and give them a card.”
Jewelry Lover’s Cards are perfect for a quick “thank-you” or “you’re special” memento that is non-intrusive but will lead people to
YOU and your Park Lane business!
In addition to handing out individual Jewelry Lover’s Cards, consider placing multiple cards at salons, doctor’s offices, tanning

ASK CRYSTAL
Hi Everyone! It’s Crystal here! I have received so many amazing questions from all of you Park Lane Directors! Please continue to send emails
to me about anything that is on your mind! After all, we are “Besties in
Bling”! Have a Fabulous February!
Dear Crystal:
I had a terrific show last night and I was telling my leader about the show the next day and she said “Wow, that’s great….you
should FLIP your hostess!” Well…I am 110 pound and she is….let’s just say…..way larger than I am….so I can’t imagine this!
However, I don’t think she was kidding! So I got off the phone and thought about it all day and barely slept the next night…I
want to follow the PL plan, but I don’t know what to think…looking deeper into Park Lane and who they are, would they approve such a thing?? What if she broke her arm on the way down?? I don’t know what to do!
Signed Conflicted in Canada
Dear Conflicted:
Oh, my poor dear…. I almost “flipped” out when I got your letter! Really, I can tell that you are trying hard to adhere to the Park Lane way,
but let’s back up and start again! “Flipping the hostess” is a term that was coined by someone in the field who no doubt was in a hurry to
win a trip or a contest…it amounts to handing over a great show to a hostess who also wants to start Park Lane. Don’t get me wrong, it’s
wonderful to recruit or sponsor your hostesses…but just be sure that you give this hostess the same strong start that you would give any
prospect; an interview session, assistance in dating at least 5 additional bookings and access to the Initial Training Class. So there you
have it! Relax and enjoy your new friend – your hostess! And by the way…no heavy lifting required!
Signed: Your friend, Crystal
Dear Crystal:
I am greatly conflicted; I want to go to the February Convention but I promised my husband that I would not use a charge card to
finance my trip to Las Vegas! We are trying hard as a family to stick to this agreement. I can’t use my grocery money either, since
he would surely notice if I skimped on food (he’s a big eater!) The college fund for the kids is out too, as I couldn’t sleep at night
if I did that! I have thought of everything. I would appreciate any suggestions that you can give me.
Signed: Longing for Las Vegas
Dear Longing:
You sound like such a sincere person; of course, I would not want you to use the kids’ college funds and would not want you to deprive your
husband of his dinner! Let me tell you that with Park Lane you can be very creative with your approach to marketing your own business.
Also, let me assure you that people LOVE to help a worthy cause and they WILL want to help you! So, put together some simple fliers that
advertise a big FUNDRAISER for the first two weeks of February! You are looking for people to take orders for Park Lane jewelry; host a
private showing, take a book to their workplace to collect orders, host a mini-event in their home and you will bring the jewelry! Anything
that works in those first two weeks that creates orders! Oh, yes, WHO does the fundraiser benefit? Why, YOU, a most worthy cause! Try this
approach. Have your picture on the flier! Then when they ask, you can fill in the particulars. BTW, your husband will be SO proud of you for
making this happen….that’s the power you have with Park Lane! See you in Las Vegas!
Signed: Your Friend, Crystal.
Directors, send your questions to me, Crystal! I can’t wait to help you! Network@jbpl.com

2015 GOALS
WHAT’S YOUR PLAN FOR POST-CONVENTION?
NOW is the time to create a business plan for post-convention and
for the month of March! Soon, you will be experiencing everything
that the Park Lane’s Convention weekend has to offer! So over the
next few weeks, you will want to set up your plans for the weeks following your return from Las Vegas! You will have new catalogs, new
jewelry, new contests and a brand new travel trip!
So what to do? Glad you asked!
• Have appointments and events dated and in place BEFORE you
leave for Convention. You will be SO glad you did this!
• Be sure to get enough catalogs and some of the new jewelry
while you are at Convention. This way you will have some exciting things to share when you return. (Be sure to bring an extra
carry-on for the supplies and jewelry you will bring home)
• Set up a hostess appreciation FOCUS GROUP in your own home or at a local restaurant. Invite all your past hostesses
from 2014 (and before). Plan a mini-fashion show to introduce our new line. Do this in the first two weeks following
Convention.
• Book some personal appointments for the two weeks immediately following Convention. Let people know that you are
selecting your best customers and good friends to preview our new jewelry line. You value their opinion!
• Have your own show/open house the week you return. Set this up now! You can add the decorations in the theme of our
next travel trip once you are home!
Park Laners, some of you will do this and some might not! Some people will hit the ground running with places to go and
people to see! Don’t be the person who arrives home and says….”why didn’t I set up any appointments ahead of time? It’s up
you! It’s your business! Just do it and make it happen. Take the initiative and plan ahead! You will be SO glad you did!
WHO WANTS SOME FREE JEWELRY?
Who wants some FREE jewelry? Answer: Everyone! Park Lane has a newly designed drawing box that comes with a pad of drawing slips. Ask owners of
local businesses if you can place a drawing box in their establishment. Try your
local cleaners, a beauty supply business, hair and nail salon and any other local
businesses in your city. This is a great way to attract some new prospects. Be
sure to check the drawing boxes weekly and call the people promptly. You can
make each person a winner by setting an appointment to deliver their “free”
jewelry. Use retired pieces or the Incentive bracelets (obtain from Park Lane).
You can purchase the drawing boxes from Park Lane for $2.50 each. Go to the
supply section of the Field Interface and type in “drawing”. Order your drawing
boxes now so you have them ready to go and into place the week you get home
from Convention! There are lots of ways to create prospects! Meet new people!
That’s the future of your business.
