    Hello! I am a soon to be new consultant in the St Louis area. A little about me, my husband is in the Air Force so we are stationed at Scott AFB in Illinois. We are new to the area as we just got here from an Air Base in Turkey! We have an almost 3 yr old son and have been married for 3 yrs now. My husband is 26 and I am 23 so we are young and new to everything right now!! LOL ;) I was really happy to find this site and I look forward to many visits and getting to know some of you as I build my business. If you live in the area, feel free to email me! ~Kristen :)

    I have never been to Fairchild, although I have a friend here in Germany that was there.
    My husband and I met while he was stationed at Buckley AFB, Colorado. We got married in Oct 2004 and moved here in Jan 2005!! Quite a bit in a short amount of time!!
    So this is my only PCS, so far. If he doesn't retire from here, we are hoping to be going to Scott AFB next.

    Welcome Kristen!! You'll love working PC into your life! I have a four year old son and 16 month old daughter, so it's quite interesting to juggle everything. But I can say it's SOOOOO nice to have something for yourself and something else to focus on every once and awhile! :D

    Thanks for the Welcome!

    Wow, everyone seems so nice! I really feel like this is going to be a great thing for me. One of my concerns coming into this business was how I would be treated by other consultants in my area since we'll all be looking for business in the same place. So far its been wonderful. I don't even have my consultant ID yet and already I've been welcomed with open arms. Wendy, I was excited to hear you are from Scott!! This is a great area and was actually our first choice of bases and we ended up in Turkey for two years. Go figure! :p Scott was our second choice coming from Turkey and I'm so glad we finally got to come here! My recruiter is fairly new as well, her name is Courtney McCord and her upline is Jamie Miller. I think I was trying to email you Wendy but I wasn't able to. If you click on my profile and send me a message, I think it will let you. Please feel free to contact me! I am always looking for support and I think it worked out perfectly with my recruiter because she lives right across the street from me! To the lady in Germany, please feel free to email me as well (actually anyone feel free to email me!) I would love to talk with you about being military overseas since that's where we just came from. Also since you said you were interested in coming to Scott, I can already tell we have something in common!

    Well, a great PC day to you all, my little one is napping so I need to finish going through my starter kit while its still quiet!

    Hey, cool! If I have my "geneology" right, we're both under Tami Johnson, so we'll see each other at the bigger events. My director (and recruiter) is Wendy Staub, who is a director directly under Tami. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you get going! :)

    Welcome

    Welcome to our group. I live in Florida and am originally from that area. I could possibly give you quite a few leads. I have been doing catalog shows with several of my friends/family but some of them are interested in doing kitchen shows which I can not get home for. Please e-mail me privately if you are interested.

    My husband is from Istanbul Turkey - I've been there 5 times now, we usually go for 3 weeks at a time. What part of Turkey were you in?
    When I was there last I saw a lady at a park - bazaar - with Tupperware catalogs and tupperware inventory. We chatted a bit... I really wanted my mother in law to start selling PC there, with all the women so into cooking, PC would be a hit! I email HO about it, and they basically sounded like not now. I don't see why not~ Americans eat out more than Europeans...
    Anyway, I hope you enjoyed Turkey... we may be going this summer again... :))

    PC will not accept anyone in a foriegn country that does not have an international office unless they are stationed at a US Military base. I am sure there are American military wives selling PC all over the bases. I know we have a couple of bases there.

    I don't know what Tupperware's policy is, but the lady you talked to must have been American or somehow related to an American. Maybe they have offices in Turkey, I can't imagine why not!!

    Yes, I know , I was just hoping that they would let me and my mother in law start PC in Turkey...someone had to start it in Germany,and UK and Canada.
    The Tupperware lady was Turkish, she didn't speak English to us, she spoke Turkish. At some point I would think PC would want to branch into other countries... I'd be willing to help! :)
