How young is too young?

I have a recruit lead, who is a senior in high school- very mature for her age, going away to bible college. She wants to sign, and do shows this Summer, and take her business with her to college. I KNOW she would be a success, and she is very excited to start, but I am thinking she is to young to sign. Her mother is willing to sign, to get her started, and work with her during the summer. She does not turn 18 until November. Is this possible? and if so, how could she end up as the consultant when she turns 18. She is more mature and motivated than my first recruit, ready to jump out of the gate.

I would contact HO on that one, don't know if they have an age limit, but I would definately sign her if they said yes, if not take their suggestion and put it in Mom's name then when she turns 18 she could sign herself. Congratulations.

She would have to be 18 officially. If her mom signed, she'd officially be the consultant, but the daughter COULD do the shows "with" her mom. The unfortunately thing is that the daughter would have to sign in November when she turns 18, but she'd be starting from scratch in regards to qualifying, career sales, incentive program points, etc..... It's so admirable that she wants to start NOW, but I don't think there's really a way for her to do it.:(

we've had

mother/daughter teams in our cluster that have been very successful. One was with a minor and her mom - they needed a way to pay for college and she's graduating this spring!!! It worked out very well, although I believe she signed up as soon as she got 18 because it was the daughter's business more than anything and the mother is now an occasional sidekick.

more stuff

She could earn all the SS bonuses now and then again in November! Wow, that's just awesome for her and her mom...BEE

i wanted to sign when i was 17 and actually went on to graduate school and forgot about it until I was getting married...then i was like you know i would love to have some pc products and I read over the info and decided to sign. It's been the greatest thing I could have ever done. I would suggest the mother/daughter idea, but explain about how she will lose commissionable sales, etc. Good Luck!!!
