I love National Conference because I always come home with new ideas, new ways of doing things. I thought it would be good to provide a place for us to share those aha! moments.

They don't have to be earth-shattering. Sometimes the smallest tweak can make a big difference.

This is also a good place to share the things that you're looking for answers to.

Great idea Rae! Those of us that can't go to conference would love anything you can share from workshops to the new products to general sessions.

I'll share when I can. Is there something in particular you're hoping to hear about besides the new products?

First stop for me after registration was the tech area. Two big aha things for me, both in relation to the app.

First, you can set it so you don't have to go through a bajillion questions at checkout. Click on settings and choose "express checkout." This will let you put in just name, email, what they want, and payment info.

Second, as people arrive at a show have them enter their own information (name, address, email, cell phone) in the app. You can even recruit a kid to have people do this. Just show the kid how to click "done" and "add guest" between people.

At the training with Robin Schilling, Tracy Verin had a great point. If you want your team to take ownership and participate in the team, don't name it with your own name or use "my." Use an action verb for the name.

Think about what you want the team to do when choosing a name--Daring Divas, The Hustle, etc.

Also, never offer anything if you aren't willing to do it.

I'm not at conference (inactive at the moment and in my 6 months before I have to buy a new kit) If my life calms down and I get a new job, I'd come back in a heartbeat.

I'm in enough PC groups that I still get the updates. Here are the new logos. For me, I need to get used to them. I love the "old" one.

As of next week? As in July? I have a show on July 26, great news!

Sounds like no new products were introduced ...

I don't mind the second one (with Pampered Chef written out). When I opened this thread and just the image caught my eye before reading your post, I thought "what is PIC"? I really thought the spoon was representing a letter. And it was not immediately clear to me that it was a spoon. Of course it IS a spoon once I know it is a spoon. So, I don't think I like the first logo - with just the letters and the spoon. Just my 2 cents. :)

I (and at least 99% of the people in the room) was thrilled to hear about replacement parts on the show orders. But for the record, I did not need them to count towards the Host's totals and I especially did not need to make money off of them. Thanks for the perks.

The new logo is JUST like allrecipes - both of them. While I like the concept and where they are trying to go with it, I am NOT happy about that. Won't allrecipes come after PC?http://press.allrecipes.com/wp-content/uploads/arlogo_rgb.png

Hmmm. Interesting, Tristen. I would hope that the legal department as well as the appropriate marketing department would have done their homework. I really like the new one and the story behind it, but not the fact that it is practically a duplicate of another company.

I believe the new products are being announced today. Change over kit information was in the 6/30/2015 PC Fresh News.

"Fall paperwork and product will ship to Directors and above to arrive the week of July 20. We'll ship fall paperwork packages to Consultants who've submitted $150+ in the month of May, June or July to arrive the week of Aug. 3. June Free-for-All products, if earned, will arrive at the same time. July Free-for-All products will arrive the week of Aug. 10.

Consultants who join Aug. 1 or later will receive New Consultant Kits with fall 2015 paperwork.
Consultants who join Aug. 1-28 will also receive a supply of the spring/summer 2015 catalogs and paperwork for their August Shows.

Business Supplies and Online Materials
Aug. 2 is the last day to order spring 2015 business materials and product samples.
Aug. 3 is the first day to order fall 2015 business materials and product samples.
Updated materials for the fall/winter season will be posted on Consultant's Corner by noon CT on Aug. 3."

The new logo is not exactly like allrecipes. Ours has a smile in the spoon bowl.

I'm in the FB group, EVernote for PC Rockstars. They just posted this link. They had a class at conference (that I'm sure was AWESOME). Here are the tools and notes from it. Evernote is an incredible, paperless way to keep your business organized and keep in contact with your customers. Check it out!

I think it will take some getting used to. There is a short video that explains the happy spoon well. If I can find it, I will try to post it.

There is the smile on our spoon, so maybe the #happyspoon makes enough of a difference...hopefully!
