    On the back of my van I have the PC logo. Well, I've had it on for over a year and a half and today I'm driving to the bank and this lady pulls up beside me and says "I need a catalog!!! Pull over please!" I'm like what? R u kidding?

    So I pulled over and she asks if she can place her order right there on the spot. I of course say yes!! She immediately orders the white deep covered baker and says wait, how much do I need to spend to have my own show? I told her $150 and she said okay. Well to spare you a longer story, she spent $402 in commissionable sales and guest sales and she also bought the mandoline and the 12 piece set of executive cookware at 1/2 price. She spent $853 right there!!!

    Is there really a "Economy Problem?

    I turned it in and the credit card has gone through too!! I'm so excited!!! What a nice unexpected surprise!!!

    Thanks for reading! I'm having the best luck this month!!

    So the moral is, make sure you advertise ALL the time! You never know who's watching!! Also, get a sticker for the back of your car!

    That's fantastic! Since I no longer own my own vehicle and borrow/share my DD's, I can't do a window sticker but I do try to wear logowear as much as is practical and carry my catalog tote!

    It is great! How exciting for you !!!!

    Can you post a pic of your car decal? Where did you get it? What all do you include in it?

    Now I need details!!! I have been back and forth, but this confirms I NEED ONE TOO!

    Definitely send it in. That's great! It's true that you should always wear your logo stuff. I have people in a coffee shop that I go to order through me. That's the ONLY place I see them, but they know I'm the "Pampered Chef girl" as my daughter calls me.

    As for borrowing a car, get a magnet (if that will work for you) off of VistaPrint. That way you can have it on when YOU have it and then remove it easily.

    Wow, this is so cool!

    My hubby was joking with me that I should pay people to have my magnets on their cars.

    Wahoo!! That is incredible.

    I also have the Merrill window decal on the back of my van. Today, I got a voicemail (didn't hear my cell ringing downstairs) from someone that was in back of me on their way to work. She is interested in having a show within the next two weeks. I called her back but got her voicemail, so I am just waiting to hear back from her.

    Like everyone else, I've been contemplating getting the stickers. After hearing they have lasted over a year, I guess I'm going to do it -- today! I'd love to have someone race me down to place an order. Cool.
