Pampered Chef: Bookings Question about a lead

    Recently, I worked three shifts at a fair. Came away with two show leads (one of which is not panning out ... the others have not returned my calls) and a "recruit lead" who gave me a phony phone number and address!

    And then there was the nice lady who wanted her professional cookware replaced. She is a past host whose consultant is not in the business anymore.

    When I called her last night, i told her I had to call PC about another matter and would get a reference number for her. She also asked if I was doing a show this week because her friend went to the same fair and booked a show and invited her!

    Would it be out of line if I asked this customer to book with ME if she books off of her friend's show? The person she booked with is either a clustermate or my upline, so I'm sure she wouldn't mind. After all, I'm doing so much for her!

    Personally, I would not put the guest in the position to explain that to the other consultant. And it would certainly put a damper on cluster meetings if it's a cluster mate. I'd just ask who the consultant is doing the show she's been invited to attend. If it's your upline, they might give you her booking (if she books) to help you. A cluster mate might need the show as much as you would.

    Think if it was reversed ... would you be offended if a cluster mate asked one of your guests to book off your host but let them be the Consultant instead of you? ;)
