Pampered Chef: Hello from Ontario

  1. Hi everyone. After setting up a paypal account and getting my funds transferred, I am finally here, lol.
    My name is Jenn (29) and I am from Ontario. I have 4 great kids and a great hubby too. I have recently became a consultant. I got my kit the beginning of March. So far I have done one kitchen show. I held a open house to get the word out about my business but it didn't go so well. I only had 3 ppl show up. I invited over 100 :eek: I just cleared $200 so at least it counts as a show :) I have a catalogue show that I am picking up today and another that I have to pick up later in the week. My 30 days are up on Apr 6th and I dont think I will make it to my $1500. I am finding it so hard to get people to book shows. I thought that my family and hubbys family would help out but they dont seem interested at all.
    Anyhow I am hopeful that things will pick up soon. Can't wait to get to know all of you! I think that this will be a great resource to help me with my business.

    Welcome, from across the border! I know what you mean about family not being as supportive as you'd hope. My sister (the only who lives in the same state) hosted a show a couple of weeks ago - a year after I became a consultant!

    Just get out there and keep working your business. You'll succeed if you have different sources of leads, anyway.

    I live in the upstate NY area and Ontario, CA is about 2 miles (if you were a bird...but if you take the bridges, it is a bit longer!!) I live on the St. Lawrence River.

    Welcome!

    Welcome. Don't get discouraged. Sometimes it takes a little while to build a host/client base.
