What would your dream job be, if you could choose? Something where you get to be your own boss? Something with flexible hours, to fit in with your life instead of dictating it? Something fun, where you get to meet lots of interesting new people? Something where you get to work with the latest stylish and pretty accessories? If the answer to all that is “yes” – and it does sound pretty perfect – then starting up your own jewellery party business could be just the opportunity you’re looking for!
If you would like your work to be a social affair as well, running jewellery parties is a really good option. Being at a constant round of parties is fun, and you’ll get to meet lots of new people, and as they’re at a party they will be in a good mood so there is always a lovely atmosphere!It also requires very little in terms of upfront investment, so you can build your business as you go along without having to worry about a financial gamble that might not pay off.
Like any business though, it’s not all play (although this one does have more playtime than most). If you want to enjoy swanning around at the parties then you will need to put the hard work in beforehand with planning and publicising the events. First it’s worth deciding what you want your tone to be, your ‘party personality’, and making sure that you live up to your reputation. It can be worth starting very locally with some hostesses that you already know to build up your confidence, before branching out. A good party will have a great word of mouth effect and take care of some of your advertising for you, but you will need to put in more effort too. Set yourself up on social media and distribute business cards as widely as you can. The harder you work beforehand, the more money you will make and the fun you’ll have!
