    Mini-Loaf Pan Recipe needed

    I have a guest who wants a recipe for a meal for one in the Mini-Loaf Pan. I made some general suggestions, but do not have a written recipe. Does anyone have one? Thanks.

    Oh my gosh!!

    You still have a few days before the end of the month. You can work this out. Do you have a PC debit card so that the HO debits out the amount not charged by customers and the host? If so, put the cash from the host in the account and call the HO with the new amount to be charged on the host...

    Web site question

    I understand about the navigation of our sites, and it's probably a good idea. I've seen some "sponsored ads" on Google that shoot straight to the online catalog, bypassing the consultant's home page. I always put my home page address on my business cards and newsletters. But I'm not sure...

    Web site question

    Yesterday I received this message from the HO. It was sent to all personal web site subscribers. It appears they are now letting us link our home pages but nothing else. Do you read it that way too? Dear Personal Web Site Subscriber: Online ordering is a wonderful asset to your business...

    Web Advertising

    After receiving the message from the home office that said, "Starting today you may only have links to your home page..." I have put my home page back into my profile on this site. I have emailed my Executive Director to be sure this is OK. Did anyone else understant the HO message in this way?

    Is this worth it due to the date?

    If "the tab will be online until after Christmas," will this get you in trouble with the home office for having a link to your web site from the newspaper's web site? (See related discussion.) Or does the message we received today about PWS mean we can now do things like that? (I hope so!)

    Web Advertising

    I've updated my site now, so at least the headlines won't be identical.

    OK to discuss Conference now!

    I agree. Steve Wiltshire's book, Vision Made Real, should be required reading for every consultant! It has changed the way I see my business, and that has made all the difference.

    Let the guests cook!

    A fellow consultant told me that she has gone to all guest participation, especially with shows for groups who are familiar with the product already. It makes it new and fun. She said her show average went up $100 a show without changing anything. She just says, "OK guys, everybody come up here...

    Has anyone had any success with recruiting by placing an ad in the

    Rather than spending money on an ad, why not spend money on making yourself a walking ad with PC clothing? I have gotten orders from people seeing my shirt. I hope if someone is looking for some extra income this holiday season, they will ask if they see me. I wear PC stuff any time I am going...

    Cookware Lids

    I think if you use a lid from the same size pan it will work. I just put the Professional 2 qt lid on the Generation II 2 qt pan, and it fit. (I do not have both full sets to try all the pans.) Each set has slightly different sized pans, so those obviously would not fit. They also have some that...

    No Demo

    Do you make any Pampered Chef recipes or does the host just provide snacks?

    Guest specials appear after Pampered Partner Update

    That makes sense, because Hawaii is very picky about foods that are shipped in. I had a guest order that special and was surprised to see it. Thanks for the clarification.

    Has anyone had any success with recruiting by placing an ad in the

    I agree. It is a good idea to decide what your "job description" is ahead of time. Write it out and practice it until it comes out automatically and sounds natural and genuine. I have sometimes been surprised by someone asking about what I do and mumble something about being a kitchen...

    Seth, I appreciate what you are trying to do, but please don't link or list my Pampered Chef web site on your pages. (I'm glad to see it's not on there today.) Like you, I disagree with the policy, but I want to work within the system to change it. I don't want a link from your site to mine...

    Website Help!!!!!!

    I would be careful how I do it. With all the encouragement from the home office to get the word out about online ordering, I sent out flyers and catalogs to everyone I could think of in September. It was very expensive (over $200), but I thought it would be worth it. I have yet to get a single...

    Web advertising policy That's right. I got a stern email from the home office requiring me to remove the same kind of link in my personal profile on this site. That surprised me, since hundreds of other consultants have those links, and the Recipe for Success says we can identify ourselves as...

    Becoming a Consultant

    The Pampered Chef saved my sanity When we moved to Indiana, I wanted to stay home with my two year old and new baby. I loved it, but after a year I needed some "me" time to keep my sanity. I was invited to Pampered Chef show, decided to host my own, and then decided "I could do this!" It has...

    How do I do a fundraiser?

    I am currently doing a fundraiser for my kids' school. I am also doing an online fundraiser for a Children's Home. I think this is a great way to build my business while also supporting good causes. Any suggestions for promoting this opportunity?

    Any promo codes for Town and Country?

    I just reordered my business cards through Town & Country. I included my web site address and new email on the card. Their embossed, full-color cards are a great value.

    Jennifer's idea is a good one. I also put labels with my web address on my catalogs, recipe cards, invitations -- everything I can think of. I'm a do-it-yourselfer, so I printed them at home on Avery label stock. Be sure to include your web site address in your email signature, too. Send an...

    Where are you all holding your cluster meetings if not in your house?

    I host my Pampered Chef cluster meetings at Coffe D'Vine, a great little coffehouse on Vine Street run by a church. We sip our coffee, sit on comfortable furniture, and enjoy the great atmosphere. We often see people we know -- a great way to get bookings and recruit leads.

    Frequency of Contact?

    I have several people who have expressed interest in the Pampered Chef opportunity. They don't want to start immediately. How do you maintain contact and preserve their enthusiasm, without overwhelming or badgering them?

    Web Order CAUTION

    Use the News? Did you also put a News item on the web site providing clear instructions? I'm doing that with a couple of fundraisers now, and thankfully I haven't had this problem. But these are my first fundraisers, and it certainly could happen. I think you did exactly the right thing by...
