Pampered Chef: Bookings Tammy Stanley Conference Call -- Anyone doing it?

    Hi,
    I was wondering if anyone is doing the Tammy Stanley -- Jump Start Your Business From a Complete Standstill, on December 30th? Or has anyone one done one before?

    I was thinking about trying at, as it seemed affordable. But one question, does anyone know when you call in do you pay for long distance rates (same as home or is it more?)? I'm wondering how much it will actually cost.
    Anyone done one with Tammy before? What were your thoughts?
    TIA

    I will not be able to listen in on the call at the time it is offered but was thinking about registering to get the free digital recording that I could download and then listen to later. Just not sure if it is worth it.

    It shouldn't cost you anymore other than your regular long distance rate. I know we have free unlimited long distance so I wouldn't pay for anything other than the fee for her call.

    $27 is WAY WORTH IT. That is just a small investment to get some ideas from Tammy whom has completely changed the way a lot of us consultants run our business (for the better). Just register by Sunday and you'll get emailed a link to download the call..which can then be uploaded to your MP3 player.

    Do you have a cell phone? Most plans offer free long distance, all day/every day.

    You will not be sorry for dropping $27 for a call that will get your business soaring in 2010. This is, of course, if you actually put into action what she teaches. ;)

    I am signed up. I find Tammy Stanley to be very straight forward and she has "the secrets" we all need...and makes it clear that we have to do the follow through!! I bought her entire package at conference and really like her CD's.

    I have had lots of company and haven't been on here -- or anywhere -- much. This call sounds great, but what/where/how?

    TIA,

    So let me get this straight ... it is too late to register unless I can be on the call?

    Then it is totally useless to me ... I will be at work.

    I would GLADLY pay $27 JUST for the audio download ... and although I would prefer to pay it to her, if she won't let me, I will gladly pay it to a fellow cheffer! Or I too would appreciate her notes. I'd never heard of her before I clicked on the web site last night and by then, it was too late to take her up on her offer.

    Update: I registered anyway. I am hoping that since the download offer is still on the web site, and since they have other time frames that are filling up fast, the download will still be available to those of us who did not find out until today. I put a "note" in my registration requesting the download and offering my spot on the call to someone else.

    Since it is an evening call, I MAY be able to make it after all though it's not likely.

    oh. THanks! Now that I think about it I remember her saying that she was not going to send out the email about her products until January because she wanted us just to focus on making our calls and following what she spoke about today and on January 1. (So Jan 2 makes sense) BUT....I had someone come to my door during the call AND an important phone call i had to take so i missed quite a bit of what she said & to fill in on my cheat sheets. Thats why I was hoping for the download. :I Such is life. Thanks ladies!

    What part on your cheat sheets are you missing? I stayed on for the entire call so caught alot of it. I was just hoping for her to send out the scripts she was talking about.

    Somehow I got dropped from the call (the first one in the morning) in the last few minutes, just when she was beginning to tell us how to get the script. :eek: My phone showed I was still connected to the conference however! After a minute I hung up and sent Tammy a panic email.

    Later on I decided to see if I could get onto the second call in the afternoon for about the last half hour and I made it on! :) She said in order to get the scripts we had to send a testimonial, so I did that. I also asked her to ignore my previous email and why! LOL

    As of this moment there are still no scripts, but it was my understanding we would have them in time for our calls on January 1. I'm sure it's a lot of work for her, so we need to be patient! :angel:

    Page 2 - Last part of the top section...it starts with When you add up the last two reasons you discover that.... and then fill in the last line.

    Page 2 - All of the blanks in the bottom section (thats when the visitor came to the door)

    Page 3 - top section (there seems to only be one sentence and then a whole big blank section - was there a reason for that space?)

    Page 3 - got most of it but the very last blank (starts when you are daydreaming)


    Page 4 - top 4 blanks

    got rest of page 4 except for Step 5 I missed (thats where the phone rang)

    So as you can see I missed quite a bit but still feel i got a lot from it. I love her uncanniness and her style. She definitely gets to the meat and bones about it all - no fluff. :D Worth the 27.00, just wish I didnt get interrupted. Thanks for your help!

    A few posts back someone mentioned her email said she would send out the email on January 2. I do believe we do the testimonials from that email when we get it.

    Never mind ... they just sent the e-mails moments ago. For those who didn't follow the links, please do so because it's automated and will save Tammy a lot of time. She's been flooded with e-mails requesting the links.

    Because she is doing scripts for so many different companies, it will take her awhile to get them all done and out.

    I really liked this! Love the honesty and the down to earth approach with customers. Now to try and teach this to my downline! Great inspiration for Monday's meeting!

    If you watched her Free videos online, she actually addresses this in a way. She basically said that the BEST way to get this across to your downline, since they aren't investing in the information- YOU did....is for them to see the results in your business. Makes sense. I don't remember which video it was in.

    Oooo...Good point! Probably on one or three because I watched the second one. I actually sent the free videos link to my team (in hopes that some one would join the call) No go, however. I absolutely loved it and will be reviewing the notes and scripts often.

    Actually used her technique tonight with one of my consultants who messed up submitting a party (big time). She was coming from the prospective of her own pocketbook, but I used Tammy's words...look at it from their prospective and walked her through what I bet they may be thinking. Then I led her through the call them NOW and tell them just what you told me. Be honest with them...she may still cancel the show, but apologize and understand where she is coming from. The customer still may cancel the party, but you have a clear mind. You were honest with her, you admitted the mistake and you are willing to make things right with her.

    Then she said, well, I will call her Monday because tomorrow is New Year's Day. I advised her strongly to call tomorrow! Don't wait. If it is an honest mistake, then call her immediately to make it right. Then I told her that the customer may be upset even after all of that but walk away knowing she did all that she could and not to beat herself up over it. Then I told her "A diamond is still valuble even after it falls in the sand and is picked back up again. It is still valuble and so are you." Words from Tammy Stanley!!

    After last night's call, I feel all up-side-down! Her ideas are so different than the training we have heard time and time again. I like what she said. It seems so natural, but . . . I'm nervous to hop in and start making calls tomorrow. I printed some stuff from her web site and got more inspired and scared. I don't know if I can do it! HELP! I need a pep talk b/f I come up with a million excuses not to do them!

    Sandi
    ps -- I also ordered her special. Can't wait to get it but don't want to wait until then to GET BUSY!

    I did not go to conference, so this was the first I've heard of her until this week.

    I agree ... she did turn some of what we've been taught to say on its head! (Good thing those speeches sounded so fake and pushy that I never used them!)

    I made a list of 10 people ... some were people who were down to host a party but never followed through ... a lot, in fact. Others are past hosts. I'm going to call more than 10 but not all on New Year's Day ... I will be leaving for work that afternoon, and there's the Ohio State Game that's going to have people gued to their TV's.

    I too thought how interesting it was that her words were quite different in some areas from what we are taught in PC training....but I've always thought about the host perspective as far as the objections- therefore I wouldn't act because I didn't Know how to respond or "convince" them otherwise....like that "January is a bad month to host".

    I had even gotten scolded almost from my Hosp.Director once because she told me to stop thinking about things from the hosts perspective and "take control". It just never has felt "right" to me. But Tammy's words do.


    And someone asked about the conference special- i don't remember what it was, but the CDs she mentioned on the call- were the same price I bought them for a few months ago on her website...so not sure if it's much of a special. BUT I will say that right now you can get one of her sets that includes the bonus CD of "How to Leave Messages.." - which wasn't available before (except separately- and its' $80). I have the CD series- loved it. I listened to it while traveling so I need to listen again so I can take notes.

    Sandi, Tammy gave the best pep talk...remember the story about the woman being freed? Quit listening to those doubting voices and let the voices of support talk louder! As Nike says...Just do it!!!

    And Bobbi, I can't believe that your hospitality director said that! Poor advice in my opinion. I think with Tammy Stanley, she is trying to have you still get better results, but in a different method.

    In all of our training, the host and the recruit always say yes. They do mention the "No" word, but briefly. In Tammy's method, she is teaching us to turn that "No, I don't want to host a party" into a...do you still want me to keep you informed of our guest specials. She is trying to help us to continue that relationship with a customer. And that dealing with hesitations can only go so far. I see the battle she is speaking of with some of my downline.

    You have to blend getting out of your comfort zone with getting inside your customer's head.

    I thought of her words of us being over marketed to last night when the Toshiba sign was so big on Times Square that I had to LOOK for the darn ball drop!! And the Nivea hats everyone was wearing? Sometimes this does really turn people off...me included!! There is advertising on the gas handle pump and scrolling on the gas pump while we pump our gas. So people are turned off by this "in your face" advertising.

    Building a relationship with customers will help you help them! And do pick up that phone today!! I plan on contacting as many recruit and party leads as I can today. Not to early, of course, but think of the late morning or afternoon. But think of it, there is shopping, but other than that, tv is pre-empted by college football games. Not all, but most women are not into this.

    Ditto...I paid for the call and was not able to make it. Then of course, I did not receive the link to the digital download because I missed the call. If anyone has any notes it would be appreciated! Thanks, Deb:)

    Missing the call shouldn't have anything to do with getting the download - there was no code to put in to let her know it was me calling in. You had to have signed up before the 24th to get the d/l. Did you register before that date? If you did, contact her for the download...the call is much better than just the notes. (although I must say the download has poor quality sound)

    She sent out an email stating if we registered by Dec 27th we would get the download, I registered Dec 28th and she said she would give the link on the call, well, then I missed the call. So, now the only way I can get the digital download is to buy her book for $14.95. Soooooo...I wanted to get some notes or something without having to spend more $$. I was day late and a dollar short by registering too late and then I had to miss the call. Totally my fault on all accounts. I think instead of spending more $ I will go to consultants corner and take some teleclasses and download some CD's.
