Pampered Chef: Getting Shows

    I have a new recruit who is excited, organized and on the ball! She is going to do great. I'm wondering if I should offer a potential booking as follows.

    Sally becomes consultant and wanted to recruit my past host Pat. Pat will be booking for Sally but not become a consultant at this time.

    Wendy booked a show off Pat. Wendy came with a group from Pat's husband's work. I don't think she would invite Pat to her show but not sure. Wendy and I have not confirmed a date. I need to follow up with her soon.

    Do I continue to schedule a show with Wendy (she obviously isn't calling me begging for one but I do think she's interested)? Do I offer it to Sally for a booking? I would offer it to Pat if she because a consultant but don't think I'm obligated to Sally although Pat may be invited to Wendy's show.

    Thanks for helping me know the right thing to do.....

    I think I need some more clarification. Sally does a show for Pat, and Wendy books off Pat's show. How is Pat not already on Sally's calendar then? Or did Wendy book off a previous show of Pat's, before Sally became a consultant?

    If the latter, I don't think you're necessarily in any way obligated to Sally to give her your leads. If Wendy is at the show Sally is doing, and books, great! If you have a previous connection to Wendy, and call her to book a show, you're fine. You're not obligated to give your business away, and the host isn't obligated to any one consultant.

    If Wendy & Sally are not friends, then I'd say no. You shouldn't feel obligated to give the show to her. If Wendy, Sally & Pat were all three close friends, then I could see you wanting to help Sally with her new business by letting her have her friend's show.

    As far as I know, they are not friends. I don't even think Pat and Wendy are friends - just through her dh's work. I had told Sally that if Pat signed, I knew of a booking for her. Of course, Pat's not signing so I can keep the booking. If I can get a date. Thanks for helping me clarify that it's not up to me to get all her bookings or give my business away. I just wonder if Pat will get invited to two different shows and that might get weird. But honestly, I'm not sure how well she and Wendy know each other. Thanks!
