Pampered Chef: Is PC still worth it?

  1. I started as PC consultant in 2010 under a family friend. She was great. Her upline was okay, but really kinda turned me off from really going deep. The upline above her was quiet and I never interacted with her. Last year, I decided to try again under the old upline (my friend is long gone with the company). It was terrible from the start and I didn't even go through with a launch party. I miss how things were and the excitement and fun around PC and the parties.

    Is it worth it to come back under a different upline? I've seen some things that PC is not what it used to be. I'd love to hear everyone's opinions on this.

  2. I love PC and my upline. What I don't get from them, I dig and find on my own with different FB groups, forums such as this, and PC website. I feel it is definitely worth it!!! I have 4 recruits under me at this time and can't wait to see my team and business grow!

  3. It wasn't that they were unsupportive. I can handle that. I'm used to going things on my own. The director the last time I tried signing up harassed my husband. I didn't feel that was okay. He became totally unsupportive after that. (Who would blame him?) I just remember when the community was amazing and it was always exciting. :)

  4. I would interview different directors in your area. Be up front with them and tell them you experiences and ask to come to a meeting. You know what your looking for, go out and find it.
  5. HI. I think a different upline would be helpful. can you find the upline that is above the one you joined? my upline is very active and we do things with her upline as well.

    My advice? If you're going to make money at a multi level marketing business, go with a line that needs constant replenishment. Such as, Gold Canyon Candles or ColorStreet Nails. You buy one knife from Pampered Chef, you don't need that knife ever again.

    I did enjoy learning about cooking techniques and good tools while I was a consultant.

    Good tools are important- a carpenter needing a specific drill bit, or an auto mechanic needing a special torque wrench, is no different from a cook needing a specific knife, cutter, time saving device for quick meal prep.

    I sold a lot of stuff naming those male-dominated fields (carpenter/mechanic) to husbands who didn't understand, and didn't want their spouse to spend money on kitchen tools.

    They finally understood their wives might want to cook more, instead of getting takeout.

    Or have a shop fix the car, or fix the window rot - their equivalent to takeout.
