Pampered Chef: Getting back in the PC world...

  1. I'm a former consultant who is now back...I grudgingly had to give it up when I became a single parent and had trouble getting out to do shows, but now I'm remarried with a Brady Bunch family and a brand new (four month old) son. I need to seriously get up to speed and I have been poking around the forum for the last day and I love it!

    Forum life is so helpful. I used to run a single parents group board with this same VBulletin setup so I'm glad that's one thing that won't throw me a learning curve. As for the rest...so much has changed, Pampered Partner, products...I have to even remember what I need to take to shows! (I remember that being something that was challenging to learn the first time). This time I'm hoping for an active director to mentor me, but at the least I hope I can lean on you all!

    As I mentioned in another thread, I'm on FB as Michelle M Little in the Washington DC network and I'd love to befriend you.

    As I get my bearings, I did have one question right off the bat...does anyone post theme show fliers in their local grocery stores or other local stores? (I did a search on this forum but I couldn't find a match...if this is a repost, just shoot me the link and I'll find my way!)

    Thanks so much and I look forward to getting to know you :chef:

    Welcome and good luck! I don't think it would hurt to post them in your neighborhood! :) Good luck!

    I haven't posted them, but I think it would be a great idea. Merrill (our vendor) has flyer poster things that allow you to print on them with your home computer/printer and have business cards attached that people can tear off. Maybe that could work for you?

    Do you have a director you are working with?

  4. Thanks Kate! (I just added you on FB, got your email!)

    I have a director of record...I asked someone in my neighborhood Mom's Club if there were any PC peeps around and she referred me to a lady who, when she responded, said she hasn't done it in five years...but she referred me to a director she buys from and I used that page to sign up when I didn't hear back from her the same day. This morning I sent her an email introducing myself and asking for cluster meeting info...so I *hope* I have someone and that I will hear from her soon...I'm not one to let grass grow under my feet!

    She may be gone on the PC Trip....or on another vacation since it's spring break.

    Welcome back to PC, Michelle, and welcome to Chef Success. Just curious - did you happen to run into a PC consultant in Fair Oaks Mall a couple of months ago, carrying the catalog tote?
Have something to add?
