Okay, I'm pretty frustrated. At National Conference last year I made it my goal to promote to Director by Leadership conference. At Leadership I said for sure by National Conference. Well, it is almost May and I have 1 recruit who isn't really working the business. My Director says that I need to get the focus off of me. But HOW? How do I not focus on my goal? I want to recruit to become Director. Is that selfish? Am I missing a big picture? I want people to find a place in their lives for Pampered Chef if that is what they want, but I am not about shoving it down their throats! I have also been burned by a few recruits. I have recruited 7 total new consultants. Three of them approached me about the business; were eager and ready to get started. Two did absolutely nothing! One submitted $2000 her first month (December) then $1100 her second month then nothing after that. She said it was because in Jan she had 18 shows booked and all but 3 cancelled. (And yes, before the holiday season hit I coached her on how to coach them to prevent cancellations, but she didn't follow through) So...I am not as aggressive as I probably should be. I want to maximize the April special, but I know that NO is lurking in my near future and it pisses me off! Sorry, I'm sure I sound like a baby, but I can't seem to get into the recruiting habit. I do ask every customer at shows and sprinkle my demo with commercials. I invite my hosts to join. I ask people when I am out and about and they see my "Ask me abouth the Pampered Chef" bag (from last year's conference--my purse). I feel like I am doing all of the right things, but not getting the desired response. Help me pull my head out of my BUTT!!
