Remember in Mary Kay, the hostess plus 2 guests is a skin care class. I always recommend encouraging a hostess to Strive for 5, but if you sense this is too much for her, offer YOU PLUS TWO. Read below from a blog I came across today.
Consider the You Plus Two for Easy Revenue
By Caterina Rando · Friday, January 22nd, 2010 ·
If you are finding people telling you they are reluctant to host a party or show due to the economy, try the next best thing to book a show: the You Plus Two. This is when you ask someone who loves your product to invite you and a couple of her friends over and you show them what you have around the kitchen or dining room table. You conduct a You Plus Two more like an interview and a consultation than a show. Since the three guests get lots of personalized attention, they are sure to make some good purchases and be very happy with the experience. That is of course when you invite them to invite you over for a You Plus Two.
