    How do I start recruiting?

    Recruiting is a personal touch I think you'll find your most effective recruiting is through personal contact. Flyers, websites and ads are fine but the reality is that most people are recruited through personal contact with a consultant. Be careful not to sink to much time and/or money into...

    Leadership Conference

    Angela -- Everyone else here has said such wonderful things about going to Leadership...and now you sound like you're committed to going...but I had to put in my .02 anyway! I've been in PC 10 years and have missed a total of 3 conferences (2 Nat'l and 1 Ldrship) -- all because of having...

    Another Updated 'We All Need to Know This!"

    No guest specials On the topic of not having the guest specials for individual on-line orders...I see this as similar to the host-only items we had -- fortunately for only a brief time. I understand the concept of having certain things only available for certain people as an incentive...

    Shop on line

    I don't think web orders will ever take over Kitchen Shows -- they really fill a different niche. It's up to us as consultants to make our Shows worth attending -- by our skills at communicating about our products, quick tips, recipes, host benefits, and mostly FUN! If someone doesn't want to...

    Recruiting Incentive Idea

    Taxes for incentives Anything we earn is taxed as a form of compensation, as previously stated - however, most of it is tax deductible as a business expense so it balances out. For example, if you earn a piece of stoneware they'll report it as a $25 compensation. If you had purchased that...

    Upright Tote - Rolling Case

    When they came out with the Showcase a few years ago it was offered as an incentive, and then a few months later (or the next season) it was available for purchase. I would thing they'd make it available since it's a business tool rather than more of a "fluff" item (like some of the other goodies).

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

    meeting location With six kids, it's not practical to try to add a bunch of PC consultants and hold a productive meeting! We hold ours at a house the city owns -- used to be a fancy private residence and now is rented out for meetings, small fairs, weddings, etc. We found out about it because...

    Bookings Opener to show

    Openers I do nametags and have for a long time -- it makes me crazy when I realize I've run out at a show and have sometimes used masking tape if the host has some! I'm really dependent on them and tell everyone at the beginning that I love that I get to meet all of them at my job, but I...

    Bookings Might be a dumb question

    No dumb questions! Hi -- It's not a dumb question at all! I offer "Express Shows" which are shows with no recipe demo. I prepare a recipe before the show and have it ready or in the oven, then talk about products. I encourage this type of show the first month of each new season because it...
