    I was told what Septembers host and guest special is, but am not sure how true it is. Can I post it to ask or is that something I have to wait after conferences to ask?

    Officially, home office asks that we don't post anything about specials, incentives, etc. until they are posted on the website. I believe the date I saw was July 19.

    I guess if its a secret til after conference I won't ask about it. I didn't know if it was a secret or not. The special I heard it was wasn't like "Wow" It seems to be just a normal special to me thats why I was curious if what I heard it was was true or not. I was thinking it was going to be something out of the ordinary. I guess I'll wait til after conference 3 to find out for sure.

    Sept. Specials

    This was my first year at conference. I went to the first session and let me tell you, I will be going every year from now on!! Now that I am back I have a whole new outlook on my business and the products. Septembers Special is really awsome, this is where your selling the product comes in and hostess coaching too. This special actually doesn't happen too often. Before I was just here because of the products but after conference I am now commited to "my business" so no matter what the special is for the month, it is awsome and wonderful of Doris to allow us to have such specials in order to help us build our business.

    Isn't conference great!?? It's so cool that it gets people more excited about their businesses and helps us realize that it IS a business and you can do amazing things with it. ALL of the upcoming specials are awesome! This was my 3rd time at conference and once you go, you always want to go!! I am SO excited about all the stuff they announced.

    I am inspired by all of the stories that I heard at conference, my SS1 was January so I wasn't sure I was going to go either, but I decided to pinch my pennies since everyone said it was so great and I went. There was a girl in one of my classes who just signed up July 4, Wow!

    New Catalogs and stuff

    Just to clear up my crazy confusion - I am still pretty new to all this....I read someplace that we are to receive the new fall paperwork & catalogs by the 29th of July - am I correct? Also - the new catalogs take effect Sept 1st - right??? I just want to make sure I am clear on all of this. I could not go to conference because my daughter just got married last week...good excuse! I have a couple of hosts who want to wait for September and I just want to make sure I am correct on the new catalogs for then! Can't wait to hear about all the new products tomorrow on the website - until then, someone email me please!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I went to my Cluster meeting on Monday, and my Director told us everything that she learned at Conference. Ladies if you are not going to Cluster meetings you should be. They are very informative and so much fun.

    I believe the guest special for October is if they purchase $50 in products they get the jar opener free. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I know its the guest special for one of the upcoming months. :p

    I believe the host special is the roasting pan at 60% off or the meat tools or the carving board set. I haven't seen the flyer so I'm assuming they get they're choice to choose from one of the 3.

    October HOst Special

    It's awesome!!! October hosts can purchase the Roasting Pan w/Rack for $58, Meat Lifters for $10, or the Carving Set for $18. :D

    This is what I understand the host special to be. I guess we will know for sure when its posted on the web. I for one am really excited over the meat lifters. I struggle every Thanksgiving with two or three spatulas and an extra pair of hands to get the turkey out of the roaster!

    cluster meetings

    Can't your director find you a director closer to you, so you can attend those meetings? Surely someone is closer. You really need those monthly meeting to keep up and talk to other consultants. :)

    Sept. & Oct. Specials

    Wow!! Those are great specials. I am so excited about them. Thank you all for posting the information. I find it easier to get bookings when I can explain what the full benefits are. Often times I will have a future host ask what all the bonuses are and if I can't tell them everything I feel unprepared.

    Thank you all for all the great information not only in this post but within the website.

    Christol :)

    Pamperedkay,

    Wish she could find me a hospitality director. But she checked with Pampered Chef and the closest director to me is 2-1/2 hrs away. So...am kinda on my own here. That is why I love this site so much. :)

    Did you guys here about the extra incentive in sales for consultants? I heard from my cluster meeting last night that August through October we have a chance to earn all three of the new PC totes (the ones you take to shows) If you get $1000 in sales they will send the first tote. At $2,000 in sales they send the next tote and if we get $3,000 in sales they will send the last tote, the big one on wheels. My director said they will send them as we make enough in sales. I'm super excited and am going to try to get all 3! Good luck.

    Show to Go Incentive

    I am very psyched about this incentive! I was holding off on finding an alternative system for my haphazard transport method, since I had seen the prototypes at Leadership. HO has made this so do-able, so everyone should be going to shows in style this Fall! ;) Start booking your August, September and October shows!

    Just a note: the 3rd tote is earned when a total of $4,000 is submitted, not $3,000 as previously posted.

  32. Speaking of the Roasting Pan....LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!...Anyway...Don't forget that it is the July-August Recruiting Promo. I just received my Starter Kit on Monday...went to my first Cluster Meeting (with a Hospitality Director) on Tuesday and found out that because I started my business during this time, if- no, WHEN, I qualify by the end of my SS Month I will get the Roasting Pan and the Rack for FREE! Everytime I show the flyer to my friends, I get OOooos and AAAhhhs....great incentive to sign up now. :D

    Hey Marg! Is it hard for you guys to get sales or bookings up there because PC is so new? I'm wondering if they make it a little lower since PC is just starting out in Canada??? :confused:

    PC has been in Canada for 9 years now, so it's not too new. :)
    I was surprised when I saw the requirements - I mean we had a logo lawn chair incentive and it was $2000 in sales for one and $4000 in sales for two and that was in 1 month!
    I think that the home office here in Canada is really pushing to get more consultants ( I believe that there are only 4,000 across the country) and want to make this incentive achievable for everyone - even those just starting out.
    I think it's great - I really want those bags! I think they make it much easier to get your stuff to a show and it looks much more professional. :)

    I agree Chefloriray. Even if my director found someone, but they were just as far, or further I don't think I could commit to going. One - with my husband being in the military and his schedule being as unpredictable as it is (he is on alert 24 hours a day for certain missions within the US for the next 6 months), I couldn't take that chance if he had to go and I was 3 hours away from getting to my 2 year old daughter. I know I am missing out and all, but I have to make do as well. My director is great about keeping me in the loop with emails and this website has been great too! Plus, my 2 recruits and I get together and share ideas. I guess you can say we have our own meetings. But when I move back to Texas, I know of a cluster that I will definitely be attending meetings with! That's the beauty of this business - you can be as flexible as your schedule and lives allow. Not many jobs can offer that luxury!

  38. For those of you who are 2 hours away from your cluster meetings, could you do a conference call? We had a consultant in my group that would call in and be on speaker phone because she lived over 2 hours away. She could hear all the announcements and still participate with everyone.

  39. Hi I'm new here.
    I've been a consultant here in northern Ontario , Canada, since last Oct.
    Are these host and consultant specials usually the same here in Canada? I just went to my cluster meeting last night and my Future Directer did not know about the Sept-Oct host and guest specials.

    It depends - somtimes they are the same and sometimes they're different!
    I know at Conference they said that Sept hosts would be able to order the roasting pan, but I don't know if it's at a discount or if they can just order it early.
