OK, for some reason, this part of the new policy really irks me: Active Consultant A Consultant (of any level) is active in a month when he or she submits at least $150 personal commissionable sales. Privileges of Active Consultants • Receive mailed version of Consultant News • If you were active the prior month, you will be mailed the next Consultant News. • Place personal or sample orders. So, if I submit like this: June: $2000 July: 0 August: $3000 I am reading the policy to mean that I would not get a CN in the mail in the beginning of August since I was "inactive" the month of July.... I'm sorry, but the CN motivates and provides info and ideas on getting bookings and sales etc. If I have a "bad" month, then I DON'T get the CN??? So, I don't benefit from the articles to get me moving/motivated again??? I can understand removing the perks (personal orders/CN) if I become inacative for the 2 month time frame, but just to have ONE month and not get the next month's CN?? I know I can read it online...but it's not the same. Sorry. I can get hot & cold. Some months I don't have anything to submit. I get really busy one month and then personal things take over the next month, so I don't push for shows. Also, just this year, NO ONE liked the March specials. I had a ton of February shows and when I pushed March shows, I got asked about the specials. Most were "no, I'll just book in the summer". Couldn't get a firm date. So, THEN I mentioned the April specials and I got some firm dates. So, here I am without a March show. I was not upset as I had a crazy February and I need to re-group. EDIT: please note that this is just my interpretation of the new policy. I have not verified with HO.
