    As I am just starting out, I have a 4 month old who cannot be away from me for no longer than 2 hours tops(won't take the bottle and is very attatched to me) . What suggestions do you have on cutting down demo time to get out of there in less than or just at 2 hours (start to finish?) I don't want to completely skip demos but what else can I do? And I dont' want to bring the baby as she will just fuss as some have sugggested before.

    Hi Heather,
    If you absolutly cannot be away more than 2 hours I would suggest having the food prepared ahead of time for your guests, and then do the "amazing potato demo". It's where you have one potato and show ALOT of products. I've never tried, but I've thought about it to cut time from the show. I've noticed that almost everyone has heard of Pampered Chef and has been to at least one party. Most people already know what they want before they show up.
    I'll try and find the attachment.
    I hope this helps you.

    One of the directors in my area did a demo using the molten chocolate skillet brownie that took just a few minutes. He is a lightening fast talker and that's a big part of the charm of his shows!! ;) The brownie was already cooked and he talked about the cookware, because the brownie was cooked in the skillet; the stoneware, because he toasted the almonds he sprinkled on the brownie using the oval mini in the microwave, and I'm sure he talked about simple additions, because he sells more SA than anybody in the state! Then he sprinkled the brownie with powdered sugar out of the shaker and was done.

    What do you think about having shows at your home? That might be a good solution for you because once you get there a little early to set up, wait for guests, let them get settled, etc., you could easily use up one of your two hours, if not more. If your son would be content to have you hold him while you demo'ed (or maybe you could put him in a sling?) I would think that having him with you would be a good answer. I did some shows at my home and attendance was generally lower, sometimes a lot lower so you'd want to weigh that in your decision. But if your little guy is attached to you, I kinda think you ought to respect his need on that. My son was probably more attached than my daughter at four months (and beyond!) and I know it can be challenging to be the mom he wants, needs, deserves and do *anything* else! :) Good luck!!
