Stepping out of my comfort zone

Jan 31, 2006
I have been doing really well trying to get out of my comfort zone to ask for bookings or to just do Customer Care calls, but I need help from you guys.

We have lived in our house for 4 years and we have a couple of neighbors down the road on the other side of the street with young kids. We have never met them and I want to go over to introduce myself and somehow bring up PC and possibly get a booking.

Even if they say no, I can mark that off my list of 100 no's.

Any suggestions?

Make a PC recipe and give to them.

You can then say how you made it. You could even give them a PC product that the recipe was made in

This way they will know how nice you and your family is by giving them a gift and know about you being a PC consultant

I make friends with my new neighbors first and then talk about PC later. One neighbor moved in 6 months ago and she finally came to one of my shows...But, the above idea is great!

When I meet new neighbors I always have my kids with me because I am a SAHM. Every single person that I have met asks if I stay home, then I bring up PC saying that I get to stay home with my kids and do PC on the weekend or evenings. If they don't ask I don't think it is innappropriate (I can't spell today, sorry) if you ask them what they do. Then they will naturally ask you what you do. You never know! I finally met a neighbor on one side through the show of my neighbor on the other side and found out that she loves PC and lost her old consultant when she moved to my neighborhood. You could have PC lovers all around you that you didn't even know about.

Definitely bring a recipe!!

Let's see I was thinking about the same thing. We close on our new home next Wednesday so it's time to pack and it's time to plan a move by next weekend!!! YAY!!!
So I am thinking about how to approach my neighbors. I will definitely make use of my door prize options (spatulas, paring knifes, citrus peelers, i-slice) and bring some profiterole puffs, pull apart breads, or that warm chocolate hazelnut cake in the rice cooker. There are so many possibilities.
And of course a mini catalog to show the wonderful products PC has to offer and my info on the back.
"Welcome to the neighborhood!" :D Even if they never order or have a party at least they will remember my smile, my generosity and that I sell PC in case a friend or relative ever need anything!
