    If so could you share it with me? I'd like to add to our home machine that it's my home office or business line too! But I'm not sure how to say it?? Any ideas??

    I have one on my cell phone, but my director has one on her main home number. Here is what I remember...

    Hi you have reached the home office of ________ Independent Director of The Pampered Chef.

    Okay guess my memory isn't working. I thought I was going to remember more. I know she says something like "and the home of the ___________ family. Please leave a message."

    I've been wanting to do this too but my husband has his business on there! I haven't figured out how to get his business & our PC business both on there. We could probably leave the family part off since we all have our own cell phones & use those more than the home phone! Any ideas on that?

    My message is much like those about and then I also tell them my cell phone number on my home phone machine. I have found that when the mood strikes them to call me about business... if they have an alternative number they seem to go ahead and try me on my cell phone.

    I have a message on my cell phone but not my home phone. The only reason we have a land line is because my DH refuses to get a cell phone. My cell phone says this:

    Hi, you've reached Katie XXXXX, Independent Consultan for TPC. I'm sorry I was unable to take your call at this time. Please leave me a detailed message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you and Have a Great Day.

    HTH

    I have my cell number on all my PC correspondence so it just makes sense to have PC message on that. I do use the landline usually when making calls which is probably dumb because it may confuse people but it works for me.

    Simple and to the point.

    It took me the longest time to figure out how to do my two home businesses. My machine says " You have reached the Buffords and the home office of Melissa Bufford, BOTH Work at Home Marketing Executive AND Pampered Chef Consultant......

    I emphasize BOTH so that they know to listen for the second business if they do not recognize the first.

    Here's mine: You have reached the xxxxxxx residence and Tara with TPC. We're unable to take your call right now . . . (you know the rest)

    I have a friend in another DS company and her husband says on their machine: You have reached Bill and Audrey xxxxxxx and Audrey with Beauty Control. Please leave a message after the beep or for BC, you can call Audrey on her cell at xxxxxxxx.

    Then another friend says on her machine: Hi, this is the xxxxxxx. If you would like to leave a message for sharon press #1, if you would like to leave a message for chuck press #2.

    It might seem odd, buy my husband had me just have the house line say "Hi, you've reached Amanda XXX, your Pampered Chef Independent Consultant. Please leave me a message and I'll call you right back." He figures no one ever really calls us other than family and church members and everyone knows I'm a consultant, so it's no big deal to just have me on there (and most of the calls are for me anyway). His family and all his employees call him on his cell phone (company paid), so he never gets calls. Feels funny to me to not have a family name on there, but I see his point. We never get calls, just me with my PC stuff. Once the kids are older and they have friends calling and such, I'll change it. But I do keep the message short and sweet. My sister used to have the "press 1 for her husband, 2 for her, 3 for my sister's Mary Kay business, 4 for the family, etc." It was long and kind of annoying. Wait...what # was I supposed to hit? :D
