Hello all- I need really good and honest advice here. I have a lady who called me up out of the blue today and asked to join my team. Now I have talked to her previously - but we didn't have anything scheduled today nor did she say she was ready at this time when asked. In short - she's always yelling at someone or something and cursing when we're on the phone together. (Either the kids, her husband, and animal - something.) Today was no different. In the midst of asking questions about the business it sounded like she was in a bar it was so loud, but instead I knew she was with family. Her husband kept yelling at her to get off the phone and when she asked me for info to send her, he'd yell into the phone "No don't send her nuthin'", and other lovely explicatives. To make matter worse, she told me she used to sell Avon and had been forbidden to ever sell it again. She had been short on cash after purchasing a new car and when she was in a rock and hard place, decided to pay for her car payment rather than pay Avon for the orders she had taken. (Avon you don't have to pay the company until AFTER the products arrived and you've collected them from the customer.) So, therefore she was inactivated and told not to sell again. Now, how do I know this? She's TELLING me all of this! I met her once at a booth a few weeks ago! I don't even know this lady! Now, I've been with PC for 5 years. I take the company seriously, and while I didn't take my BUSINESS seriously at first, I never compromised my integrity or morals. I just was a hobby consultant and was happy. Regardless of my level of commitment to PC - I'd never compromise the company, myself or anyone else. So, in saying that, how do I handle this lead? She's ready to sign up soon and wants to start before the holidays. Generally I'd be very excited, but I'm quite cautioned with her. I emailed her to give her the information she requested (regardless of what her husband was saying) and told her a bit out the PC history. I explained we are a professional company with professional consultants. I truly believe that PC is that. There are many men and women who take their businesses and the company as a whole very seriously, and that is one of the things I love about PC. I don't know if it's my place to decline her interest, but I don't know if I'd be hurting the company or misrepresenting what they are about if I DID sign her. I'm not being pretentious here, just cautioned on how to handle this situation. I don't want my consultant status put into any kind of jeopardy. Normally I'd consult my director about this, and I intend to do once she returns from her vacation. I did run it my DH to get his opinion, and he suggested that I just pray about how to handle it. I do agree with that! I need guidance, that's for sure! :angel: But, I also wanted to get the opinions of other consultants and thought this would be the best place to get that. Thank you for your time!
