Pampered Chef: Brand New Consultant In Ontario Help!!!!!!

  1. Hi there Everyone,

    I am brand new in Pampered Chef, have never used the products, don't own any of them, have never been to a party but have fallen in love with the company and the concept. I am so excited to be a part of this team and looking forward to doing my first shows I have 5 bookings for January 1st one is on the 17th Jan, I have mixed feelings of excitement and I am so nervous. I am not a person who likes the limelight or any kind of attention. I am so glad to have found this site and have already learned so much from it.

    I do have a question though how many people actually play games at their parties? I am a little leary of this, do people think it is corny? I want to take a gift to my hostess's does anyone have any suggestions. I would like to bake something special for them.

    Thanks to everyone for their openness on this site and their wisdom I am sure to learn from everyone here.

    Blessings

    Marion

    Talk with you recruter and your director about your concern they will help you. Also when you receive My first kitchen show VHS watch it everything you need to know for your first couple show is in there. Good luck! :)

  3. Yes my director has been wonderful and so has the site been an amazing help with everything. I have my first cluster meeting on Tuesday and I can't wait for it. So I might get some answers then. They are actually going to do a live demo so that will be helpful for me as well.

    Thank you
    Marion

    Hi Fellow Ontarioan (is that a word? LOL)

    Marion,

    First, welcome, welcome, welcome. I'm from Ontario as well and have been with PC just over a year. You're going to LOVE the company even more as you go along! I'm amazed that you've never been to a show before. In my town, EVERYONE knows of and has seen a catelog or been to a PC show.

    As far as games go, for 5 years I regularly attended and hosted shows with different consultants. LOVED the recipes and products but never found the shows that informative or fun. I now make sure that when I do a show I include a few tips (not too many as I already have a tendency of being long-winded, and of course I have to save some for when THEY book and have THEIR shows) and I always do a quick game just to lighten it up and not be all about sales. I usually do it at the end of my demo, recipe and chat, before my door slips then they also get a prize from a drawing from the slips, I quickly close and they eat while I take orders and book more shows.

    As far as gifts go, I only give a Season's Best since I feel the company already thanks and rewards our hosts generously. I DO know however, that some gals will make a chocolate or candy heart from our Stoneware heart and then wrap it up in colored cellophane with a pretty ribbon and present that. Still very inexpensive but a nice thought, and very pretty.

    If I can be of any more help, please ask away or even email me at hayward@cogeco.ca.

    Good Luck and congrats! :)

  5. Jodi, thank you for your words of encouragment, where about in Ontario are you. I am in Ajax. What kind of games do you play? I like the heart idea especially for the month of February I think I will try that one maybe make a shortbread heart mould or something. I have a really easy recipe that would be good.

    Drove right past you twice today..

    did you see me wave? LOL I live in Trenton and had to go to the in-laws in Mississauga for dinner tonight so we did some shopping in Oshawa and then headed there. Drove home tonight around 9 in all that darn snow. Roads were down to one lane on both sides of 401.

    For games I play Queen of the Shoppers, Got it Love it, Left-RIght Game or I have a Closing Game that they give themselves points for as I read it. Nothing too complicated.

    I have a question for you. If you've never been to a party, don't have any of the products etc. how DID you hear of PC? Inquiring minds wanna know :confused: :D

  7. I have heard friend talk about the products all the time and I am very business minded and was looking for something to get into. So I randomly looked up PC on the internet since I love to cook and entertain it is my favorite pass-time I figured this would go hand in hand and I can earn some money doing it...lol!!! I have my first show on the 17th and it is a fund-raiser so I am really anxious and nervous but looking forward to it. I still have no clue what to make for it yet.... I haven't got my speech sorted out yet. I have written it all out like a million times and hated them all. So I will probably end up winging it.
