    Correct Answer
    B. B. The director gets to take a break and sit down.
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: The director gets to take a break and sit down. During the “Try On Time”, the best thing that can happen is that the guest keep shopping, trying on jewelry and adding selections to their Wish List. The Director can spend time listening to comments that indicate booking and recruiting interest. The Hostess can encourage her guests try on more selections.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

     Which is an example of good direction that the director should give the guests during “Try On Time”?

    • A.

      A. Go ahead and write up their order.

    • B.

      B. Build their wish lists

    • C.

      C. Circle what they want in the catalog.

    • D.

      D. Sit down if they are finished shopping.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Build their wish lists
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: Build their wish lists. The guests will look for direction and guidance from the Fashion Director throughout each part of the show. (That’s why we are called Fashion Directors!) A good director will not want the shopping to end too soon. Adding additional selections to a wish list will be a reason for a guest to book her own show.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

     What should the director have on the jewelry table besides the jewelry?

    • A.

      A. A mirror

    • B.

      B. Shopping guides

    • C.

      C. A timer

    • D.

      D. Pens

    • E.

      E. All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. E. All of the above
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: All of the above. Having just the items that guests need available will help them shop easily and efficiently. A mirror is a necessity! Having pens and shopping guides handy when they approach the jewelry table will help them get started with their shopping. A timer, set for 15 or 20 minutes (depending on the number of guests) will help to remind the guests to keep shopping. Be sure to have enough light available so that the jewelry shows well.

    Rate this question:

  • 4.

    • A.

      A. Ask the hostess if she has something the guest can borrow to wear.

    • B.

      B. Ask the guest to put on her jacket.

    • C.

      C. Ignore that guest because she has bad taste anyway,

    • D.

      D. Help her find just the right thing to complement what she is wearing.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Help her find just the right thing to complement what she is wearing.
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: Help her find just the right thing to complement what she is wearing. Jewelry makes the outfit! There will be something on your jewelry table that will enhance the appearance of what each guest is wearing. Since our jewelry goes from casual to couture, the director’s job is to find items that will enhance any outfit. Help each guest find just the right jewelry that fits her personality and outfit.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

     What is the best way to handle a guest that has to leave early?

    • A.

      A. Have her call her husband to see if he can babysit longer

    • B.

      B. Tell her that she should call you tomorrow with her order.

    • C.

      C. See if you can at least have her finish up her wish list.

    • D.

      D. Have the hostess talk her out of leaving.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. See if you can at least have her finish up her wish list.
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: See if you can at least have her finish up her wish list. If a guest must leave early (as is often the case), your hostess can be a big help. First, attempt to obtain a completed wish list, so you can at least give the guest an idea of what her purchase would amount to. Additionally, get your hostess to speak to the guest and urge her to stay a little longer. If that is not effective, make arrangements to connect with the guest by phone or in person the next day.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

     What is the best way to show the Hostess Only jewelry?

    • A.

      A. Show it, but keep it separate

    • B.

      B. Mix it in with the regular jewelry

    • C.

      C. Leave it until the end of the show

    • D.

      D. Don’t show it; just have pictures in a picture frame.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Show it, but keep it separate
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: Show it, but keep it separate. The director definitely wants to “highlight” the Hostess Only items at the show. As the Hostess Only selections are shown, be sure to comment that the items are either Thank You items ($14 for the return of the guest list) or special items that can be obtained only by someone booking a show, (Star #4/Hostess Only collection). Make sure that you then display the items separately as opposed to mixing them in with the regular line, as they cannot be purchased.

    Correct Answer

Keep her involved with the guests and the jewelry. Hostesses are actually like “recruits-in-training”!

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Try on jewelry and build their Wish List.
    Explanation
    Correct Answer: Try on jewelry and build their Wish List. If you have kept a good pace during your show, then the “Try On Time” will move along at an even speed. Each part to the show has a purpose; the “Try On Time” is the time that guests can continue to select jewelry that they like. It’s a time to add more selections to their wish list. Building their wish lists will give any guest a basis utilizing our customer sale and realizing great savings! A wish list with many selections will also be a reason for a guest to book her own show to obtain all of the items.

Give the guests the time to enjoy themselves; with the jewelry and with each other! If they have fun, they will want to repeat the experience by having you do a show for them and their friends!
