Pampered Chef: I know that we are rewarded for bringing people aboard, but I was

    I know that we are rewarded for bringing people aboard, but I was wondering could this hurt a consultants business? I live in a small town and if I signed people up it would just cut into my sales!! Just wondering if I was the only person who feels this way. There was another consultant in this area and when she new that I was doing o.k she quit. I don't know for sure if it was me but that is just what I heard.

    Even though you live in a small town you are bound to know different people, have relatives out of town, college friends, etc. Some people may be willing to travel futher than you. I would look at it this way: If you recruit enough people you'll become director and ear a portion of what your team earns You and your team could OWN that town! In fact, I would do it before someone else does.

    There is a smaller town near me, and I have done many shows out there. I have 2 consultants there, I still have great business, and they are both doing well too. I don't think any of us have had any overlap in customers. There is enough business out there for everyone. I have also found that it has helped my business with each new recuit I sign. I am more motivated and held more accountable for my business. (I have 5 recuits and am signing 1 on Tuesday).

    Go share what this great business has to offer!

    i wouldn't worry about infringing on each others' sales. i'm doing shows in the neighboring town where another consultant is, and my customers didn't even know there was PC in the area.. so, there are TONS of people out there. plus, every customer of yours is a whole new circle of contacts.. think of it that way, and you won't worry at all.

    oh and think of the things you could do as a team--huge fundraisers, bingo nights, open houses, fairs, etc. Two is better than one, and its not like you would steal the others' sales, so if you worked together on a fair or something, you'd both come out good. [just did this with the consultant in the next town over--we both made out very well]

    don't worry. God will pour back into you what you give--tenfold.

    be blessed :D

    I have two qualified recruits in the same place of business! We work in a small hospital in rural OK--probably about 200 employees.
