    I wasn't sure which category to put this in so I apologize if I'm off!

    I'm am so excited about this business I can't contain myself!

    I signed up in March and right away ordered the catalog tote. While at my ob/gyn last week one of the receptionists stopped me and asked if I had a catalog, she had been looking for rep. I was so taken aback and she was sort of whispering so I didn't get her name but gave her a catalog. Tonight she called me and said it was Fran from my ob/gyn's office. Of course I thought the worst at first but then she said she had a small order for me! That small order turned out to be $118 between four girls in the office and one of them wants to book a party! She will give them my info tomorrow!

    Next, I was at my bank (not where I am doing my PC banking) and I had to order checks. While sitting down with the customer service girl I asked her a question about how quickly I would know if a check bounces. I then explained I just started my own business and had been given a lot of personal checks lately so I wanted to keep up on it. She asked what kind of business and after I told her, she asked a lot of questions and said she definitely wants to have a party, she had never heard of Pampered Chef! She took a catalog and asked me to contact her!

    Next, at my second show of Friday I got a very good potential recruit! I can't help but be busting from the seems! Yippee!

    Thanks for listening!

    I know what you mean. I have to keep reminding myself that it will be a couple of years, at least, before I'm making enough to do PC full-time. Right now I'm hoping to get to the point where I can at least work part-time, and count on PC for the rest.

    Thanks Sarah, I never thought of the part-time thing; that may be a less distant possibility!

    Awesome excitement Great for you!!
    I just got back from a party It was an hour away from my home left at 10:30 am and got home at 6 pm $400 in sales and 3 solid bookings. Everyone of them were concerned about being an hour away. i assured them that my car can go that far and I have GPS just in case!! They were very excited to have a PC consultant. I'm very happy for the business.

    I've gotten orders at the bank by having "Pampered Chef Business" under my name on my checks and deposit slips.

    Congratulations. I've always said that I don't sell PC. It sells itself.

    I am on pins and needles...my potential recruit has indicated that she will be signing up online tonight! I hope it goes through without a hitch! She was going to come to my house but can't make it so I'm praying!
