My son's best friend's mom just started selling Beauty Counter. She texted me out of the blue last night wanting to host a party for "me and my friends." I reached out to another mutual friend who received the same text - so there are likely others as well. I'm not interested, and I really don't think she's going to find much of a market around here. But I see a lot of this woman (she's perfectly lovely, but we don't share many similar interests), so I'd like to be gentle but firm. How would you respond?
I'm inclined to respond, "No thank you, I'm not interested." It just all sounds so transactional - but it's she who made it so!
