    New Consultant Credit Card Charges

    I know PC usually takes a few days to charge our Order Payment Accounts but what if a new consultant uses their own credit card to pay for a show in their first 60 days? Do they debit the amount right away like a normal credit card charge or do they take a couple days like the Order Payment...

    ISO PC pins or pens

    I thought I had some different things left in my office but apparently I got rid of them. I'm looking for any logo writing pens or pins that you can wear on your shirt. I'm not looking to spend a lot of money just want to give my new consultants some things to use.

    Signing receipts

    Do you have your guests sign their receipts for credit card payments? I only ask because right now I'm doing a book party for another company and she is requiring me to mail her all the receipts that paid by credit card with signatures to her for "verification that they agree to pay". I take...

    Gift for coworkers

    I have three coworkers I will be getting a gift for. I'm debating between the whisk filled with hershey kisses or prep bowls filled with something. For the whisk, do you use the small or big one? What are your favorite fillers for the prep bowls? I'm thinking the prep bowls might be...

    OT: Secret Santa Gift Idea

    This is my first job that isn't completely surrounded by guys and we are doing a secret santa exchange. The gal I drew mentioned that she likes to try new restaurants. My thought is to get a bunch of menus from some of my favorite restaurants and maybe highlight my favorites at each one. Who...

    How to turn a $125 order into a $300 party!

    I had a vendor event at a mall today. A consultant of mine was there yesterday and said it was pretty slow and she only got a couple orders. I wasn't sure what was going to happen when I got there today. I had a few small orders come in and spent the first part just chatting with the other...

    My sister is planning a girls weekend in Chicago after the new year and we are trying to find a hotel that is reasonably priced, not too expensive to park, possibly a suite since we will have 4 adults and 1 teenager. The best one I could find was Hampton Suites (The Hampton Inn & Suites Chicago...

    Searching by phone number

    Did you know that you can search by phone number in P3?? I didn't until about a week ago and used it a second time today! There are probably others out there who haven't figured it out so I thought I would share. In the same spot under contacts that you would search for a name, type the phone...

    Garlic Slicer recall

    Looked at the back order list today (um... beer bread is on back order!) and noticed that there is a recall on Garlic Slicers sold during a certain time. When I click on the link it doesn't take me any where. Did I miss this announcement?

    I am in desperate need of bookings :( I have a booth this weekend and was thinking of doing a version of the dice game there. I thought about bringing the Spice Turn About with spices labeled 2-12 with prizes on the bottom. I thought about little things like old season's best, twix-it clips...

    Cookware Demo

    What's your favorite cookware demo to do at your parties? After 6 years in the business I'm looking to expand. I've always focused on the DCB and other products but not much on the cookware because I didn't want to carry it with me.

    Apple Corer/Peeler/Slicer

    Can you just peel with this? I have a host who says she hates peeling potatoes and though that this might work. I don't have one and have never used one.

    Pasta Carbonara

    I made this for the first time tonight - pretty good considering I don't like pasta with white sauce. I didn't have chicken stock (oops) so I just used water - guess it probably would have added more flavor to it. The one issue I had was with the simmering part. It says to not bring it to a...

    Missing checks :(

    On Wednesday night, before leaving for Denver, I met up with a past host to get some checks for a few orders that she collected. I submitted the party that night (shipping to me) with intentions of depositing the checks when I got back. Here I am tonight and I cannot find the checks any...

    All chicken recipes?

    I'm working on figuring out recipes for the new season. I've been trying to stick to main dish style recipes to show easy meal ideas. I usually pick recipes that include the DCB and MFP because they are great sellers when you show them. The recipes I'm looking to offer are: Chicken Fajita...

    Chicken Parmesan Soup

    I really wanted to like this recipe but I made it for dinner tonight and it just seems incomplete. I feel like it needs something more than just chicken, sauce and cheese. I think it needs noodles or something to give it more body. The croutons were a little weird too. Some of them came out...

    OT - weird question

    Some of you may remember that I was laid off my last job for 8 months and finally found a job this spring. I basically took the first job that said yes for two reasons - first I had to because I was on unemployment and second was because I really wanted to start working again. Well after 4...
