    I was wondering if anyone could tell me how going to conference changed their business. I have heard many positive stories. I will be attending my first conference July 11-13th. I am so excited!!! Anyway I just thought maybe people who have gone can share their experiences. thanks :) :)

    Attending conference turned my business around.

    As a Super Starter, I was doing awesome! I have $4000 in sales for my first 5 months. I was amazed! Then I hit December and my shows started cancelling because of the holidays. Then in January I hit more rough spots with weather issues. I continued to work steady, but my sales went down to $2000. Most people think that is awesome, but it wasn't my goal. My goal was to have $4000 in sales every month. I got discouraged, but kept going.

    I also teach 2nd grade and the end of the school year started keeping me incredibly busy. By the end of June, I was tired and ready for a break from it all. I didn't do any shows in June. July came and I had NOTHING on my calendar...NOTHING. I had already committed to conference and felt I couldn't back out. I was going to go to conference and then quit Pampered Chef.

    I went to conference and the whole big picture just made sense to me. I got it. I saw what my business could do. I came home and started making phone calls. I got 5 shows on my calendar for August. I had $4500 in sales for August and my business has been strong sense. I have also recruited 4 people since conference.

    I am focused on directorship. I really enjoy helping others grow their business and it is fun watching them be successful in their business.

    Had I not gone to conference, I would NOT still be doing Pampered Chef. Because I stuck with it, I am able to quit teaching full time and teach a 1/2 day kindergarten class next year. I have my PC income to fill in the empty spaces.

    Going to Leadership also really helped me grow my business. I strongly encourage EVERYONE to attend. If you want to take your business to the next level...you have to come to conference.

    I would like to go but

    I would like to go to conference but I have a 7 month old son I would have to take with me. My husband will be leaving in June for a 5 month tech school(air force) so I can't leave him with my husband. My family lives far away.Do you all know of anyone that has taken a child with them to conference and it worked out fine. It sounds like it would be hard to do but I really want to go to conference. I may have to wait til next year. Any suggestions?

    What about taking a friend or relative with you? Or , if you have a sitter you use, what about taking her?
    Just a couple ideas. :)

    Janel Kelly...do you have a family member who might come and stay with your little one while you are gone? You could take your son, but you'd need to have someone stay with you at the hotel to watch while you are gone. That would be hard. I'd really try to get a family member or trusted friend or neighbor keep you child while you are gone.
Have something to add?
