    Hi all! I've been going back and forth about selling PC for a few years now. I am having a party in April and when I asked my consultant about the business she told me about the March special. It just seems to be the right time in my life and for me to take the plunge.

    I am a bit worried on being organized as far as keeping track of mileage, expenses etc. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Where do you live in Michigan? I'm in Gaylord.

    I use an excel file- I start a new one each year. in January I list my hosts, travel miles, and expenses- ie food or postage, and the total sales, and my comission- just so when I call them again to host again I know how much they did to help, or how hard it was to get info from them, etc.I just keep adding to it through the year- with one central location for all info.

    P3 has a section to track expenses for shows too- which is handy. The software is great because it takes all of teh guesswork out of everything.

    hope this helps.

    Welcome! This is a great time to join PC - I live in the Grand Rapids area - and actually have people calling ME to book shows!

    All of your expenses can be tracked right in the Pampered Partner Program that comes with your new consultant kit - it does a great job! I just did our taxes with Turbo Tax, and all of my info was right there for me!

    Thanks! I am in Port Huron actually. We were just in Gaylord a few weeks ago on our way up to the Soo. We used to live there a few years ago and had to travel up for dh's work kinda sorta. We stopped at McD's for some fries for the kids to get them through those last few hours! lol :)

    I have 2 parties lined up for sure so I am just waiting to contact 2 other friends so that I can have my 4 parties lined up and ready to go! :)
