    I started my business and then went inactive. April was 6 months, and I didn't realize at the time that the contract was void after 6 months of inactivity. I have recently had two shows, both more than $1000. One has been submitted and has already shipped. Am I still inactive? What happens now?

    April was the first month of the new career plan where the 6 months of inactivity means you are no longer a consultant. I would call career solutions to double check for your own situation. Had you received any letters or e-mails informing you of dates and deadlines?

    I'd call to be sure. Was April 6 months from your start? Did you ever qualify in the first place? (4 shows/1250 sales) Did they send you something in the mail?

    See, I'd just call HO instead of guessing and assuming. I think under the new plan, after 6 months, I believe you'd have to resign?? Good news, is IF that was the case, you can do it under the mini-kit till the end of the month! :D

    If she was no longer a consultant, she wouldn't be able to submit shows...and since she's submitted a show and knows it's shipped, I'd say she's active again.

    Oh - and everyone was given a grace period for this new system. I have consultants who hadn't submitted in more than 6 months, but they are on my team list as "inactive"...

    I was also going to say, if you have access to CC, then you're still a consultant.

    On April 1st, everyone's inactivity was re-started at month 1. So you're fine. You submitted shows, you're now active again.

    Anyone who was inactive now has until the end of Sept until their contract is terminated.
