Hello all I have been lurking here for a week or so but I finally signed up to be a consultant on Friday. There are so many great topics and ideas on here I don't know where to start. But anyway, I'm trying Pampered Chef out to try and turn some wasted time into $$. My husband works really long days and when I get out of work I spend 2-4 hours home alone. So I'm hoping that the time will now go to good use. I'm a little leary because sometimes I have little motivation for anything lol but my husband is confident in me so that helps a ton. I hadn't even thought of doing something like this until August when I did a catalog show for my best friend from high school, who thanks to PC I've gotten back in touch with almost daily. Anyway, without even trying I got $200+ in sales for her. So I started asking around if anyone would be willing to do book shows for me and I got a couple friends who already said they would. On top of that I have a bunch of good ideas and have started making a flyer and postcards. So if I did $200 without trying I should be able to do much better than that with real effort. For now I'm not really trying to get it all done in the first 30 days mostly because I'm scared of cooking shows LOL, but I actually might reach that goal. Just a little about me- I'm 31 and just got married in June. I work FT as a nuclear engineer (not nearly as glamous as it sounds) and my husband and I live in MA about 30 minutes north of Boston with our dog, 2 cats and snake. We are hoping to add a human baby to that list within the next year I look forward to meeting everyone and sharing ideas. Thanks in advance for the ideas you've all already given me.
