    Director Mrs. Jennings: Being Prepared Pays Off!

    I am a familiar face at my son's school and slowly but surely the staff is getting to know that I am a PC consultant. We were late to school earlier this week (overslept--oops!) so I had to walk him in and sign him in. The school secretary says "Oh, Mrs. Jennings, I need a couple of those...

    Does Wearing Logowear Lead to Potential Customers and Consultants?

    Went to IHOP for dinner sporting my PC shirt tonight. A waitress that brought us our food (she was helping out our waitress) noticed my shirt and was SO excited to have found a PC rep, as the one they knew moved away. I went to the van to get her a catalog and the host specials and asked her...

    Yesss, the Extra Touch Pays off

    I'm doing the happy dance. I had an HO lead online order this summer for $165 incl. the DCB. Thankfully she provided an address and e-mail.

    When you sell a DCB bundle, who pays tax on the guest's free gift - you or them? For example, if your bundle comes with the "free" pocket thermometer, do you pay for the thermometer, plus tax or go ahead and charge them the tax? Also, for those who offer free shipping, do you pay the tax on...

    Maximizing Your Health and Savings: Why Asking Pays Off

    I thought I had made peace with the fact that I am not persistent enough to buy the Wii Fit and that I would be a gym rat instead. The gym rat thing has not been working especially over the last month. :grumpy: DS and I were at the mall tonight and he wanted to go to Gamestop and play with...

    It Pays to Attend Your Cluster Trainings!

    So I hosted a "spring kickoff" that was officially on ice. I made some stuff in the vain hope neighbors would trudge through the blizzard, but in the end, it was just me and Roomie eating the chicken nachos and brownies. (At least they were good!) I trudged ahead, dug out, and headed to my...

    How Guest Pays With a Gift Certificate

    Okay, a customer has a gift certificate she wants to use at a show to pay for her order. How do you do that? I don't see anything on P3 -- just check, cc, consultant gift, etc.
