    It helps to have a pen and note pad with you, so you can jot down all the wonderful ideas you will be hearing. They will generally have enough new recipes made up by volunteers or demo'd so that you will want to have only a light lunch or supper before going. In other words leave room for a taste of several recipes. Folks dress casual, and there is usually an on-time drawing. It pays to get there 10 to 15 minutes early, so you can meet some folks and pick their brains. They will have awards for the last month's sales stars, and introduce new consultants. You will be glad you took the time to go.

    I carpooled to my first few meetings with my recruiter. Then, went on my own because it was so worth while for my business.

    Wow, 2 hours! Mine is 45 minutes away and that seems like forever!

    Enjoy and ask lots of questions of your cluster mates.

    I applaud all of you for making the drive to your cluster meeting. We some consultants in our group that can't make it to a meeting and it is only 10 minutes away.

    I don't go to my cluster meetings. They are usually on a Monday evening at 7:00, about 40 minutes away from my home. After spending 9 hours at my regular job, and picking up my 3-year old from daycare and getting him fed and bathed, the last thing I want to do is hike it up the road again.

    My family is much more important than a cluster meeting, of this I am sure.

    It doesn't mean that I don't care about my business; it just means that my priorities are different than some.

    i am very excited to go to my cluster meeting this afternoon. i think it will be good for me as i just started PC in july, and i am hoping to be able to get new ideas and find out what others are doign to make their business a success, you guys are great on here, but talking to someone in person can be better!! so i am hoping to be able to learn alot and bring back lots of ideas, maybe even to share on here! oh get to try all the new recipes for the fall!!!

    I love our cluster meetings, and they are a huge monthly boost to my business. I am a bit of a short term girl, and need a bit of hype and excitement now and then to keep me excited and motivated. :) They may not be necessary for everyone, but they sure are necessary and appreciated by me! :)

    I like the meetings too! I missed ours last month b/c my son had t-ball, and afterward found out I was high sales and a few other honors. Bummer to miss that! I like to try the recipes and get new ideas, too.
