Pampered Chef: Interesting Recruiting Situation

  1. OK, so I'm thinking about joining PC (and I'm pretty sure I will be doing so soon).

    BUT--there are two people that I know in my area who sell PC. Both are directors. I'm not related to either one, and both are more "acquaintences" than actual close friends.

    And both know I am interested in becoming a consultant. I've hosted a party with one, and talked about the biz with the other.

    Now my dilemma is this: I'm not sure who I should sign under. My heart is telling me to sign with the director that I "click" with. She motivates me, gets me feeling excited (like I can do this), and gives me straight answers. I feel like she would support me, yet not "push" me to do more than I have time for/am willing to do.

    The other one is a very nice lady, too. She's the one who did my party. She was a lot of fun (although not very enthusiastic) and knew the products well. But she's a lot quieter, and when she answers my questions, I get the feeling like she's not quite certain about her answers--even though she has a team and has been doing this for 9 years. I just don't feel like I would get the support I need from her.

    I've done DS before, and am with a romance company right now. I have had some good leaders and some not-so-good leaders. I work much better when I have good leadership.

    I'm not sure what to do, since I know that I will be seeing both of these ladies and working with both of these ladies if I join. I don't want one to be upset, thinking that the other "stole" me away.

    I would go with the one you felt the connection with who seems to be the one talking to you about the business. When it comes down to it, it is your choice.

    Sounds like you've got your answer right there! The chemistry you've got with the one Director will help you be successful!

  5. That's what I figured. I just don't want the other lady to be upset with me, or my sponsor.

    I know some DS companies frown on taking another consultant's "customer". A company I was with 6 years ago would tell me that, since I actually purchased from Consultant B, I had to sign under her whether I liked her or not. I was hoping PC wasn't that way! :) Good to know it's not.

    Can't tell from your post whether they both know that you're talking with both of them. Please do them the courtesy of letting them know about the other one and tell whoever you don't sign with (B) that you went with A. You view this as a business and know what you want so I'm sure you'll do well.

    pinkunicorn: (sorry, I don't know your name) I also think that you should sign with the one who you think would give you the most support. Having confidence in your recruiter/upline can REALLY make a difference in your success. ;)

    Definitely:balloon: the one who you click with is the answer and I hope you did that. I would say that you do owe the other one a call and of course she understands that you can not sign with both so give her a nice explanation and some compliments....
