    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.

    Welcome! Who is your director? I am in MA as well- in Lowell! I'm under Kerry Madden in the Wilhelm downline, I bet we're linked somewhere along the line :). Hope to meet you at a training event or something soon- congrats on your new biz!

    Thanks everyone!

    kdangel- Hi. I just graduated from UMASS Lowell in 08. I live in Haverhill.
    I'm originally from central NY and my recruiter is my best friend from high school out by home. And her recruiter is from Maryland. So I guess we'd have to trace the lines back pretty far to find out connection lol.
    How do I find area training events? I am looking forward to going to them.

    My kit is scheduled to arrive tomorrow! I can't wait!! First so that Ican start trying out the products to be ready for a show and secondly, so that I can follow with a lot of the topics from here. LOL I was just reading some about recipe cards and labels, I have no idea what you all are talking about because I've never seen a PC recipe card.

    I opened the box with all the PC products in it and the carrying bag. Does anyone have any advise for packing the bag? Do I take everything out of the box? Save boxes? There should be a drawing on how to pack the bag for travel LOL.
