Okay guys and gals..
I'm quite excited...I've had what we all hope to get...an out of the blue e-mail interest for becoming a PC..she's a stay at home mom..lives on a military base, and is interested in doing this as a hobby and for fun and meet people..problem...husband doesn't think its a good idea..
She wants ideas on how to convince my husband that she should at least give it a shot! (her exact words)
So...wouldn't you know it...I'm at a loss of what to say...I don't get the husband objection thing very often..any words of wisdom my fellow consultants? From her e-mail..I know she will enjoy this, and want to help her anyway I can to achieve what she wants!
Thanks for everything!
Cheers,
Angela

Very often, the husband ojection boils down to three things:

How much will this cost?

What kind of commitment is involved?

When will you start to actually earn money?

Answer those questions and you will usually satisfy the questioning hubby. :)

I am a military wife living off base but overseas none the less. My husband is very supportive of my choice to own a PC business. I had just completed my collection of the Professional Cookware Set when the new ones came out. Guess who wants the titanium ones???? Yep, he does!! And he doesn't even cook since I became a housewife. Find out what the husband's questions are, post them here and I will have my husband answer them from a military standpoint. Or the lady can email me if she wants to know anything about doing PC in other areas of the world. I don't recruit, so I won't take your lead!!!

husband

Perhaps meeting him would help convince him that you are "normal." His real objections might be that he doesn't want someone else influencing his wife or doesn't know what this is all about. You could "interview" her at her house when her husband's home, ask her to see if he'll meet with you, or invite him to one of your kitchen shows. Whatever you do, don't try to downplay his opinions. Without his support, she won't even be able to do this as a hobby because he'll make it too difficult. good luck....BEE

She's a military wife right? How about this - Since I move all over the country - being relocated from state to state and possibly overseas - in support of YOUR career, how about you just be supportive and I'll do the rest?

I'm half joking but also annoyed with my own husband this morning so I'm not real man friendly right now!

I agree with Marg, I think our husbands want to make sure we are not getting conned into a money losing scheme. And he might not be familier with PC.
Just answer his concerns honestly and he will probably come around. :)

being a prior military wife i understand about moving all around. it seems about the time you get settled down and start making friends its time to move again. so she could also use that to her advantage. this will be a way to make some new friends while earning some money also!! thats one of the reasons i signed up anyways. my 4 yr. old daughter was/is my best friend! i needed some adult conversation every now and then!

Thanks for ALL your help

She actually got in touch with another PC consultant, who is helping both her and her husband! As I'd like her to be successful, I informed her about the PC book and told her I was here if she needed anything..plus gave her the link here..so hopefully she'll be around here soon!
Thanks for all your help!
It is much appreciated!
Cheers,
Angela
