    Could someone direct me to a link that explains the consultant program, requirements for staying active, what you have to do to obtain commission on your downline.

    Thank you,

  2. Hi Sally. :) I sent you a Private Message. What information specifically are you looking for? I can direct you to all kinds of information if you're already a consultant. If you're not a consultant yet, I'd be happy to answer each question you have specifically. :)

    You can get information about the consultant program from the PC website or at one of our personal websites. We can't post them here but the extension to mine is: /bbrigham

    To remain an active consultant you must submit $200 in sales in any 2 consecutive months. For instance, your combined sales for February and March must be $200 or more AND your combined sales for March and April must be $200 or more. If you sell $200 in March and have no sales in April you are active until the end of May at which time you must have another $200 in sales for May. OR if you sell $150 in March you must submit $50 in April to remain active and then $150 in May to continue to remain active.

    If you always submit at least one show you never have to worry about this!

    As far as downline commission:

    Once you have recruited 2 consultants (Future Director) you get a 1% override on all your own sales and on the sales of those you recruited every month that you sell $1250 or more.

    Directors (5 qualified personally recruited consultants) receive 3% override on their own sales and 3% on sales of everyone in their first and second lines every month that they have $350 in personal sales and the team (including the director) has $4000 in sales. PLUS lots of other benefits.

    I hope this helps! So... are you thinking about the PC opportunity? ...or are you thinking about promoting? Whatever - I wish you the best!

    Laura and Beth,

    Thank you both for your information. I am considering becoming a PC consultant. I do have a consultant that I know, but I really do not want to get her excited and then if I decide that this really is not for me, I would feel bad. I also have concerns about doing a cooking show in front of people, and my family has told me that they do not care for the products. I know that you should not depend on your family for sales.

    Thank you again,

    Hi Sally,
    I think it's great that you're giving this some thought! You've come to the right place! :) You'll get a good picture what life is like as a consultant. I say go for it! I understand about your hesitation about doing something where you'll be up in front of people....I had a huge fear! That and I wasn't too keen on cooking either. But, this experience has changed my life for the better and has shown me skills I didn't even know I had. It's been amazing! As for family not being too supportive, I know what that's like too. My mom didn't own anything PC until I had my show right before becoming a consultant. She was a big skeptic as well and I could tell wasn't that gung-ho about it. BUT, she's become one of my biggest supporters! she loves the products and is about to host her FOURTH show for me next week. She also hosted my highest show for me 1 1/2 years ago....$2800!! So, go figure. You may see people's tune change once they actually see and use the products. Next thing you'll know, she'll have more products that YOU'LL end up having. But the great thing is, you'll likely get all of yours for free! The Super Starter program is awesome!

    If you have any other questions, just post them here. I know you're already working with a consultant, but feel free to email me if you want! :D Good luck to you!
  6. Hi Sally,

    Being a consultant is a blast--and my family and friends were the same way. I felt I was pushing people to do parties, simply because I didn't know anyone else. I just did a craft fair last weekend, and I've already booked four parties--from people I've never met!!! I'm sure to grow my network that way... I had a drawing for "free" shows--I pay for postage for invitations and mail them out for them, plus I bring the groceries for the recipe. Four shows--I'm psyched! Plus I got several online orders as well, which made my day.

    If you don't make the $250 mark it's okay to go inactive sometimes. I went inactive over the holidays because I just had too much on my plate, and now I'm ready for more! It's the most flexible job, with the smallest investment. I think it's totally worth it... what I would do is ask other people you know to have parties for you before you sign the contract, then you won't have a knot in your stomach about "bookings."

    Good luck!!!
