    The Ups & Downs of Trying to Book an HO Lead

    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.

    Director Finally Back in the Lead System

    I've been so bummed to not have been in the lead system since late last fall. It was mostly because of the darn recruit requirement. Even when I put my business on the back burner to go back to work in my previous field, I was still hitting pretty decent sales for barely doing anything. But...

    Director Seriously??? What a Waste of a Ho Lead!

    Current consultant put in for a lead because her director won't call her back & she has questions about her status. I called the solution center and they gave me her director's name/number, so now I need to make an awkward phone call tomorrow! Thanks for wasting my HO lead...

    Ho Lead Said I Called at 11:59 Pm!

    I just had HO call me about one of my HO leads. The lady called them and said I had called her at 11:59 PM, which is outrageous! I usually head to bed at 9, and usually finish any calls by 7:30 or 8 PM. This lead was mad as she gets up for work at 2:30 AM, so she hasn't responded to me. She...

    Director Is this email requesting pampered chef products a scam?

    I got a HO lead this morning requesting products, clearly a bogus phone number. I sent an email and this is the response I got. I called HO Career Center and the repsonse I got was less than helpful. I was told I could not go back into the lead system... wasn't asking too. I wanted them to know...

    Director Why Did HO Lead Me to a Potential Home Buyer Instead of the Consultant?

    I get a lead today - and it's a lady saying that she's looking for a specific consultant. In Tennessee. (I'm in Michigan) Not because she wants to order anything, but because while she was on vacation last week, she looked through the lady's house and wanted to buy it. The lady was a PC...

    Hold Placed on an Online Lead Order?

    I have an online lead order on my Shipment Status page, and the status is "hold". I can see that it's an $85 Outlet product order, but of course, the personal info is blocked, so I can't contact the customer. In that case, does Home Office contact them about the problem??? I've never had...
