Just for the record, besides the cc charge (a per card charge + yearly fee for being able to take a card), they have to buy the Host Rewards ($10 for every $100 in sales) and buy the product for samples.
In the end, they end up making around 20%. It is a little deceptive.
And no, you can't sell TS at a PC show. That is in the Consultant Agreement.
However, all DS companies have customer dedication to their product. I love TS and purchase it a few times a year from my rep. We all have to stick together!
I always wonder what their show average is. How does our 20%+ on a $500 show compare to their 35% on their average show, plus the expenses that have been noted?
When I started with PC, I didn't step down from the jewelry biz. However, I didn't sell anything after I signed.
There is a reason I switched to PC. It's just way more practical!
Sure, you can partner with a TS consultant and cross sell .. however you'll find that people have a limited amount of money to spend. You'd probably lose!
