I've been lurking around this website for a while now, and it's been a huge inspiration to me as I've contemplated joining PC. Yesterday I took the step and signed up. Woohoo! I was waiting for $90 to fall out of the sky, but my husband said the other day he wanted to give me the money. He's really excited for me to start, and he's been so encouraging in telling me he thinks I'll be really successful. I have three small children (all under 3), so I am quite busy with them. I need some sort of outlet where I can meet new people, have a little time away from the daily routine, and stretch my wings a little bit. Besides that, a little extra income would be very nice! All that to say that this won't take the place of my most important job, mothering; it will just be a little extra something I can enjoy. The things that attract me to PC are not just monetary. It's such a good way to become a better person, whether it's learning how to deal with people or how to set goals and achieve them. I really hope to use this as a way to help people, not just get things for myself (though that's fun sometimes, too!). We moved away from most of our friends and family at the beginning of this past year, and I miss so much having people over. I hope this will be a good way to meet some new friends. I've been reading a book by Joyce Ross called Direct Sales: Be Better Than Good--Be Great! that has also inspired me to go ahead with PC. Anyone familiar with this book? She has some really helpful practical suggestions on organization and increasing sales. It's been a worthwhile read. Can't wait to get my kit in a few days so I can really get this thing on the road!
