September will be here before you know it and then we are getting so close to Christmas! This is the time of year that many people start looking at those part-time jobs to find ways to earn some extra cash for the holidays. Today I want to challenge your thinking with that. What if I could show you a better way to get what you want for the holidays and be able to not even use your credit cards this year? Interested? Read on!
A Typical Part Time Job
Businesses are starting to hire now for their anticipated holiday rush! There will be plenty of opportunity for you to find something that gives you a little extra cash. So let’s look at that. Suppose you find a job that pays minimum wage, as most of them do, and they can give you 10 hours each week. The average minimum wage in $7.25, so you would be making $72.50 each week. In a month, that would net you around $250 each month. Okay, so if you did that for September through December, you’d have around $1000 to spend for the holidays. Not bad, right?
But, What If….
Now, suppose you had your own business with South Hill Designs. Take that same 10 hours each week and work your business. That would mean you have two or three parties each week, but for simplicity, let’s say two. My average social is $500 in sales. So now let’s do some math! Two parties each week, $500 at each party, that gives you $4,000 in sales for the month. With our commission plan, that $4,000 in sales would mean an extra $1400 in your pocket EACH MONTH! In just four months, you would have over $5,000 for your holiday shopping. How would that change your Christmas?
Imagine Your Future
So let’s suppose you take that job at the mall. It’s busy, it’s hectic, and let’s face it, sometimes holiday shoppers aren’t in the best moods as they fight the crowds. Then there are the sale days. Pushing and shoving, everyone wanting to get the best deal before someone else grabs it. I remember my mother coming home exhausted from how many times she had to straighten the shelves of products because of people just going through them. And for that, you have around $250 each month.
Now imagine that only two times a week, you have a fun night out with a group of women. Maybe it’s a theme-based party where your hostess does a Mexican Fiesta, or a Coffee and Charms. You spend an couple of hours working with your hostess ahead of time planning something special for her and her friends. The night or day of the party, you get to go have fun, share your products, and help women create the stories of their lives. Along the way, you meet new friends and find people who had so much fun they want to have their own friends night out. Now that effort gets you around $1200 for the month.
Let’s not stop there. Now close your eyes and imagine it’s Christmas Eve or Christmas morning. You and your family are gathered around the tree, maybe you’re having hot chocolate, or spiced cider. It’s time to open gifts. Imagine the squeals of delight from your children as they open that gift they have been hoping for. Imagine the pleasure you feel in seeing your family receive the special things you have selected. Maybe you have even done something during the holiday to support a homeless shelter, or your favorite charity. All because you can!
Fast forward to January. You know how January goes. It’s the month we all get our credit card statements from our Christmas shopping. You open your bill, and wait! There’s no balance! That’s right, this year you were able to do your entire Christmas celebration without using your credit cards. All because you took 10 hours a week to really invest in a business for yourself.
