I need some ideas from people on really starting selling Pampered Chef. I became a PC Consultant in January mostly because I love PC and wanted more. I have had an open house and some catalog parties for people. I have never had a real party and have not pushed for one because I'm not a natural cook (like most of you are I'm sure). I have slipped away into inactive status and am digusted that I have. I decided to start my comeback with an advertised open house shared with other direct sellers in my community. You know the kind...you book a table and give away free items and get your name out. I had purchased books, bought old items from people on ebay to give away, and was geared up to start back up with a blast. Yesterday I found a note in my door that the open house was cancelled due to conflicts and my money was returned. I'm disgusted with the whole deal but thinking maybe I should just advertise myself and turn it into a party of my own. So what do you think? I would love advice from all you successful consultants. I'm no longer interested in just buying products...I want cash!!!!!!!!!!
