    Another consultant in our cluster has until the end of this 6th month to either turn in a show or be out of PC. She wants to stay in, but doesn't have any recruits and she's already lost her career sales a few months ago. She's thinking about letting the 6 months pass and resigning to get a new kit and paperwork and all the new consultant benefits. Anyone know of a reason not to do this?

    Just as long as she "does it right"- have those starting shows lined up for her first 30 days, etc... :D Make it count!

    But if she's already lost her sales, I don't think there would be anything else left "to lose".

    I agree. She doesn't have the career sales to worry about. I'm there. I had under $150 in August, and shows that canceled in September. I sent out a mass email to my clients to help me retain my consultant status with $150. I'm almost at $50,000 and certainly didn't want to lose it. I got an email to do a catalog show, and two orders totally $90. I've got hope.

    I think in the six months she should be lining up shows so when she does re-sign she can have a bunch of shows and really get her business off to a solid start.

    I've never known anyone who did it. I'm sure they would give her a new consultant number which means she'd have to have a 2nd user account in P3 so that she could still access the old info of past hosts/guests for warranty purposes, but still enter & submit new orders under her new consultant number. If she has her consultant # on her marketing material, she'd need to re-do all of that too.

    Otherwise, I don't see why not. ;)

    I remember the agreement asking if you've been a consultant before, and what your number was. I think they might let you keep your number.
