    Tracking change over kit shipment

    Now that adjustments are done differently, do any of you know if there is a way to track shipments such as the change over kit? I haven't received mine yet, but my team member, 2 towns over received hers a couple days ago.

    Customers using the website on their phone to order

    I recently did a virtual Facebook party and the host just contacted me to let me know that her friend is having a hard time ordering through the website using the internet on her phone. Can someone remind me what the issue is? I remember reading about that somewhere, but can't find it now.

    Words of encouragement when in a slump

    Although I don't post on here too often anymore, I do check in once and a while and lurk :). But I have to say, I love being able to search back and find some great words of encouragement about what to do when bookings and business are in a slump. I have just lost my directorship for the 2nd...

    Help for a fellow consultant

    My dear hospitality director, Yvonne Thomspon, who is a Senior Director from CT, was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. She has never smoked in her life, as she would say, not even a ham. She has had surgery to remove part of her lung, and has started treatments. Her doctor told her it will...

    Making phone calls

    Okay folks, I need a little nudge. I have been awful about making my daily contacts. That phone weighs a ton, and my calendar shows it. (August is empty). For those that have made phone call after phone call in one day to fill up your calendar, do you pay attention as to what is the best...

    New batter bowls pour spout

    Has anyone had any problems pouring from the batter bowls? I did a customer care call with a customer yesterday and she was disappointed that they didn't pour well and dripped a lot.

    Customer Care Email

    Do you have an email letter you send to your customers for customer care? (That you would mind sharing here). Whether it be a BIG MAC (MAE) or a month or so later, I am looking to send my customers an email as a follow up to my customer care call (especially if I only get their voicemail) or if...

    Office Depot online Print Center

    Has anyone had problems uploading documents to Office Depot before? I have never had problems in the past, but I have been trying to upload, and once I have selected my documents, and try to click on the "Upload and Continue" link, nothing happens. I haven't been able to figure it out. I...

    I would love a Pink Ribbon Charm

    I saw this on the Pink Ribbon Facebook page, and it made me think that it would be a nice incentive to earn a pink ribbon charm to add to our bracelets for May or October.

    I am going to Sizzle!

    I know it's still early, but I am so excited! Although I have attended each and every Spring/Fall Launch, I have not attended a conference since 2008 because we have not been able to afford it. This year the hubby has agreed to let me put some of our tax refund toward going to Sizzle in July...

    Disney twist for Booking Tree/Necklace

    I had a great idea pop into my head last night as I was wanting to offer the booking necklaces at my shows this month to increase my bookings so that I can earn the incentive trip for the first time this year. I had the craft sticks already, and bought the colored poster board, and then cut out...

    Teacher's Lounge show invitation flyer

    I have been invited to set up in the Teacher's Lounge during their lunch hours. I am looking for a flyer/invitation that will be put in their mailboxes. Does anyone have one made that you would mind sharing? I did find one in the files section, but want some more ideas. Also, I am...

    Directorship, FINALLY!

    I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself. After a long 6 1/2 years, the time has come! I added a team member this month which makes 6-7 team members (a couple soon to be dropped, but 5 active for this month) and we will make the $5k sales requirement as of tonight! I have been on pins...

    Beta website - Incorrect customer credit card charged

    Just curious to know if this has happened to anyone else: I entered a show in the Beta website last night. I have been on beta since the release to Team Leaders. The host used her card to pay for her order, plus 4 others. There were about 20 orders for the show. She called me this morning...

    Simple Additions Small Square Bowls

    Do the small square bowls that are in the current catalog fit into the discontinued square bowl caddy? My SIL had the set, but one of her square bowls have broke, and I would like to replace it for her.

    PO Box addresses in hosts/customer's contact information

    Has anyone else had problems with including the host's PO Box address in their contact information, in the beta-site? I include it in line 2, and now a customer is having trouble entering their online order to a show because the host address is a PO Box. Their street address is in line 1. I...

    Recipe booklets for customers

    I love offering the email booklets for my customers when they purchase products like the Brownie Pan and Deep Covered Baker, but can never seem to keep up with sending them. How do you manage this?

    Scam emails

    I was feeling soooo left out, NOT! Up until today, I had not received any scam emails. Today, I received a " HO lead" from a Maria A, with just an e-mail, with just a note saying "would like to order". (no phone #, address, etc.) So, of course I reply with the link to my website, but also my...

    I am getting soooo close to Directorship!

    I am trying not to get too excited, but after being in the business for a little over 6 years, Directorship may be in my near future. I had 3 team members, 2 of which are active this month. 1 new recruit signed the first week of April, and has held 1-2 shows (1 show only had $80 for sales) so...

    HO Lead goes MIA

    I finally get an HO lead after many, many months of getting nothing (although I have been eligible). The person was wondering if I travel to their town, about 50 minutes to an hour away. I called as well as emailed her to let her know that yes, I have done a few shows recently in her town as a...

    Twice Baked Potato Bites - no small ridged baker

    My newest consultant wants to make the Twice Baked Potato Bites for her second show, but she (and neither do I) does not have the Small Ridged Baker. For those that have made these, do you think that making them in the Deep Covered Baker would work?

    Ceramic Cookware - Is it safe?

    I have a upcoming host (her show is Thursday) that has a guest asking about the Ceramic Cookware. She asked if it was made in China. When I replied that it was, she now wants to know if it is "safe". Any thoughts? I have the sauté pan that we earned for FREE, but my preference is the...

    Really?! It took you 4 months to figure out you didn't receive your order?

    I just have to share my laugh for the weekend. I received an email from my Nov 30th host telling me that one of the guests did not receive her order yet. Looking at PP3, I had no order history for this guest, only the information from her DPDS. After looking through my paperwork, I did find...

    You Tube videos from Feast

    I would love to see some You Tube videos of testimonies, etc. from Feast 2013 if anybody would like to share the links. I have seen the ones Patti Moccerino posted. I was scheduled to go to Hartford, which got cancelled as we know, so we missed out on seeing that part.

    Looking for a way to trim your grocery budget and stretching your meals? Check out the deals in the meat department. over the summer, I took advantage of (our local grocery store) Mega Savings Pack. I paid $74 for 30lbs of meat. The items were taken from the meat case (in the same case that...

    How far do you travel to close out a show?

    I did a show on 11/30 that was about 40-45 minutes away from my house (but only about 10-15 minutes away from the store where I work part time, and I do travel to that town every other week to go to Walmart, and other errands). Her show will close with around $550 in sales, but I will be...
