    Can I Update My Non-Beta Site on Consultants Corner Classic?

    UGH! I get the whole new consultants corner thing but I didn't know that this also meant I cannot update, change or add shows to my non-beta site! I tried to set up a show there for my Relay for Life team. All the new site would let me do is set it up under Beta. Well sorry, this is not...

    Why use unsalted butter in cooking?

    Besides the obvious ingredient (salt) .... what is the reason for Salted or Unsalted Butter? I always stand at the butter aisle scratching my head on which to pick up. I 95% of the time reach for salted but was wondering what you would use the "unsalted" butter for.

    Tips for Catching a Clever Mouse in Your House - Peanut Butter Trap Hacks

    There is a mouse in my house!! I've seen it, the cats have tracked it around the house but don't do anything to it! Usually peanut butter on a trap works perfect but this one has been the king of getting the peanut butter off the trap without setting the trap off. Or in the case this morning...

    Rant Are German Home Based Business Regulations Causing More Harm Than Good?

    So even though they are not in my downline, I'm trying my best to make life in Germany better for all Home Based Business people. One of the bases (Hoeschele) is telling people that they can't drive their car to do a show and they can't go into other people's homes to do a show. I just...

    Director Never Underestimate Stupid People

    I'm not sure HOW they still amaze me. You'd think after all these years I'd be used to hearing about the stupid things people do. But somehow I still sit here scratching my head & wondering what in the world this woman was thinking!

    Director How Can Forgetting to Send Orders Impact Small Business Events?

    I did a show in July - VERY small show, weird crowd. I held it for a few days waiting for the checks to clear...and then totally forgot about it. Host called me today asking where their orders are. I look and realize I forgot to send it through. It's now the 16th and I can't get them the...

    Lesson Learned: The Consequences of a Lazy Mistake

    I had a customer at a show on February 28th, who wanted the Snowman Platter. Unfortunately, by that time, it was gone. I did some asking around, and found two fellow consultants in the area, willing to sell theirs. It happened to be the day of our cluster meeting when I spoke with them. I...

    Cake Disaster - Trying Out Torte Pans

    Well ... I made a cake tonight and against my better judgement, I used the torte pans. Even used the circles of parchment to avoid sticking and trying out the cake. Well, after 15 minutes I had to pull it out of the oven b/c I could smell it burning. Didn't want it to burn more in the...

    Rant Stupid, Stupid Order Entering Mistakes

    So tonight I found out from a host that one of the guests at her show got double charged and sure enough it was me who entered this person's order into P3 twice. Not only that, I did it to another customer too. There were 17 orders on this party. I just double checked myself to death I think...

    Is This a Really Great or a Really Stupid Idea??

    I'm thinking of submitting this as a suggestion to Product Development, but wanted to get your opinions first. Someone mentioned in another thread they would like to see a smaller DCB, to fit smaller microwaves or for people who are cooking for 2 or less. This is a wonderful idea, but the...

    Stupid Question...but I'm Curious...

    What's the difference between wave 1, 2, and 3? When I registered, I only had the option to register for wave 2. Are they all the same? The website (unless I totally overlooked it) didn't clarify any differences. I'm just curious...that's all :-)

    Director What mistakes can you learn from when submitting a party?

    I submitted a party yesterday morning and it was $642 something. I totally forgot the dollar level for this month to get the Chillzanne so even if I reminded the host, I still would have thrown something on to get her to that level. I have taken the Host specials from the Consultant News and...

    This May Be a Stupid Question But...

    Do you still get commision from orders placed on the outlet section of the personal website? I am asking because I only need $25 more in sales to get HO leads and I wanted to buy a few things on the oulet section. So I may just buy it myself.

    Stupid Question About Business Casual Shoes??

    Ok maybe I'm a pain, but I know it was mentioned that dress for conference is business casual and no denim. Which I have no problem with. However, it's also been mentioned to wear comfy walking shoes. Shoes translates to me sneakers. Sneakers don't fit into business casual in my opinion?? What...

    Rant Maximizing My 90-Day Success: How I Almost Missed My $50PC Bonus!

    I thought my 90th day was Dec. 6. I worked my BUTT off to get one more catalog show in so that I could get another $50PC before my 90th day. I got all of my orders yesterday, but thought, "I'll wait one more day to see if I can scare up one or two more." I just got an email from corporate...

    Okay, so I did a dumb thing. I had a customer at a show in early September that was really excited about the cookware but couldn't outright buy it.

    Is Parchment Paper or Wax Paper Better for Rolling Dough at a Kids' Workshop?

    At my Kids in the Kitchen Workshop I'm going to give each kid a small ball of dough and let them roll it out with the Baker's Roller and then punch out their cookies. Would it be fine to do this on Parchment Paper or do I need wax paper?
