    YouTube - The Pampered Chef

    So, this was going around on FB the other day. It wasn't posted by him or any other consultant, so it doesn't violate the Policy Guide.

    I had heard that he sings at his shows, but I guess I didn't realize his show is actually a show. Obviously it works for him. Who wouldn't love to have that many guests at their show? I felt kind of bad for the few gentlemen at the one table in the back. They didn't even get catalogs!

    At one point, he holds up his bar pan. You can tell he does the same recipe all the time. I'd love to go to one of his shows to see how he presents newer and seasonal items.

    He was a presenter at our Spring Launch last year and he had the whole place in stitches. What a performer! I'd but PC products from him.

    That's why he is called the Broadway Chef. His audio training on CC is awesome. You should give it a listen.

    I sat with him at a local meeting and he actually stated to me that he gets nervous speaking in front of people!!! I said you have got to be kidding me!!!! My husband does not believe how he can have such high sales every month...so I just showed him the video...I know for a fact people book him for the "show".

    Very interesting. I think I'd throw up! :D

    I can see why he doesn't have many folks joining his team though. Who would want to follow that?! most folks would NEVER think it was something they could do after seeing his shows. 99% of the consultants already in PC would think that.

    But glad it works for him. He would be interesting to watch.

    I thought I had a lot of energy until I saw that video....I was worn out just by watching it. Definitely not for me....but I have met David and he is a cool dude! That is the beauty of the biz...find your style and work it baby!

    He does have a downline, just not a lot of production from it. He recruits every few months. I see his stats in an ED's newsletter. He sets his own goals and goes for them. He can't compare himself to anyone else and we shouldn't compare ourselves to him, either. It would take an awful lot of rehearsing for me to get that all memorized. I can't even remember the page #s for the cookware :)

    Shootfire, by the time I get a page number memorized, there is a new catalog coming out! (Yep, it takes me THAT long to memorize pages)

    Never fails, someone asks...where is it in the catalog? I gave up...I give a prize to the first person who finds it and yells it out!

    I'm speechless...

    Thanks for posting. I always wondered what his shows were like and how he manages such a high sales volume.

    What recipe was he preparing? It isn't one I have used before. I think I would like it with chocolate and marshmallows.

    I don't know, but I like how his music even matches up to adding the ingredients to the recipe! :D

    If I started singing, I'm afraid everyone would run from the room--not one of my strengths, for sure.

    I need to watch this when I can actually have the volume up! DH was watching tv last night so I couldn't hear it.

    I just viewed it. He must do mega shows (2 or 3 hosts and presents once). I also noticed it looked like the guests did not get to taste the recipe being presented. Alot of the serving dishes on the table were not PC. Hummmm.... Gives me some ideas! I do have humor in my presentation and it helps. Boy does he have alot of energy. Ladies seemed to like it. I think I will have to update my presentation!

    no...not so much. But there is a class of people who seem to think rules don't APPLY to them ;)

    The Policy Guide states:

    Since the video was not uploaded by David, the person uploading it isn't bound by the PG. But if a consultant personally uploads something without permission, they're in violation.

    I am actually one of David's recruits!

    David did a show for me at my home last year.. this is of course what got me hooked. First of all, the show was in January (extra 50% host free product) and the sales were around $1400 so you can do the math... I got SOO MUCH free stuff it's not even funny (over $400 worth, if not more). At my show, by the way, we did a Mexican Chicken Taco Braid (it's awesome, btw). Yes, I believe he does bar pan recipes most of the time (interesting to think of the top guy in sales not doing a DCB show huh?). For my show he gave me 4 recipe choices (the chocolate one, a veggie braid, and 2 other braids).

    Surprisingly, I did not feel intimidated to follow him as a consultant.. I just do my own thing. I'm a 2-4 show per month girl, I do it for fun, a little extra money, and a lot of products :) He is laid back and doesn't hassle the downline to perform more. He knows everyone is just doing their own thing and I like that.

    Just thought I would share my experience!
