Let me know what you think.
Thanks,

I Love This Site!

Hi Deb,
Just wanted to tell you that I love this site! There are some other message boards that have PC threads going but not a site exclusively for PC consultants. So thank you!
I'm pretty new at PC, consultant since June '04, but I've done Tupperware, Avon, Jafra, MaryKay, jewelry, Amway. I've got to say that PC is the best program both for consultants and for hosts that I've seen. I'm lovin' it (oops, that's McDonald's saying).
I hope that more consultants will join. You never have enough tips or training. I've been doing home parties for a long time and I always am picking up new tips.
Looking forward to more on this site,
CHEFINGREEN

I am so glad I found this site. My only suggestion is a place to put attachments... like flyers, postcards, labels, etc. I have been making my own, and would love to share them. Or if there is a place.. I totally missed it and I am sorry. LOL

Hi Onetallmama :)

When you goto post a message or a reply scroll down bit until you see " Additional Options" and then select "manage attachments". We'd be happy to see some flier ideas and such :)

I really like this site. I see how many people view a thread but do not respond and that is disappointing. I come back every day looking for new information and hoping that all those people out there will start sharing!!! Its like being a pew warmer.

Thanks! We are still very new, only a few months old. We see alot of people viewing, starting to post more. The founder of this site is currently on vacation, so once she gets back things will pick up. The best thing to do is spread the word so this place can be a great resource.

I love this site too. I check it everyday to find out what new tips I can try out on my business. I just recruited someone and was excited to share this website with her. It's a good training tool for both new and long time consultants. Keep up the excellent job!

New Topic For Discussion-motivation

Deb,

I was looking for a topic on things that other consultants are doing that get them motivated and keep them motivated. There isn't really an area for this on your site. Could you make something like this a new title, maybe Business Ideas or Growing your business, something that is not specific to bookings or sales or recruiting. Also a good place to discuss the difficulties of working at home and everyone's ideas on how they have concurred those obstacles. Others may have issues with organizing their business-another topic that might fall into this generic category. Anyway, I love this site and I hope more people will start providing input and feedback.
Thank you,
CHEFINGREEN

Customer Care Tips

Since customer care is the key to growing our business, maybe adding this as a forum topic/category would be helpful with those who struggle in this area (myself included).

Love the site

I absolutely like this site. It is full of great ideas that have been helping me out! I do think a place to start putting attachments would be nice, so that you could pick and choose different ideas for your business...other than that, I enjoy reading the many posts and gaining knowledge as well as ideas. Thank you!

Good job

Hey Deb,
I am thinking that my hubby, who found the website for me, is like God here on Earth. I was really stressing over how to do this, because there isn't much literature, even on the PC website about how to do one of the Bridal Shows. I even checked into the teleclasses, but they don't have one from what I can see. Thank you for your insight and FOREsight to do this for we novices that just want to make the Bride to Be's day extra special!

Love This Site

Last Friday I first spoke with my director and she was going to mail out some information to me. Afterwards I started searching the net to do more research on PC. I came across this site and found so much information that I called her on Monday and signed up. My first show is March 11th, which I am hosting with a St. Patricks day theme. I already have 3 other shows and a catalog show ready to go. I love the theme ideas! They give you more ideas to work with!

Excellent Site

Hi All,

I, too, wanted to congratulate Deb on a job well done with this site. I have been with The Pampered Chef since June '04, briefly went inactive, and now I am, hopefully, back in full swing. I look at this site not just once a day, but sometimes 3 and 4 times a day. I just saw the idea about the Jimmy Buffet Theme Show, and I absolutely love it. I really think that this will be a big hit here in Idaho. I can't wait to have one. I'm actually thinking of having my own, as an open house, and let everyone see the new spring product line. WOW!! Again, thanks for this awesome resource.

I, too, am new, and get more support from this website than my own recruiter/hospitality team. I learn more everyday, and I also use yahoo groups, but I need more locally, anyone near Jupiter, FL? Give me shout!

Thanks! :p

Does anyone have problems with their Director? When I joined PC I assumed that my Director would be calling me or emailing me with words of encouragement or congratulations. The only time I ever hear from my Director is at meetings. I don't even get a reminder about the meeting. Maybe I assumed wrong. I joined last August and in the first few months it would have been nice to have some encouraging words. I figured she saw my sales and that I would have gotten maybe even a email to tell me good job or some encouraging words when I had a slump.
I have a new recruit under me and I have stayed in steady contact with her and she does the same with me. I helped her reach her goal in her first month by giving her a party I had scheduled myself.
Well, I was just wondering. I hear great things about other directors and meetings but my experience has been different. :(

Great Idea Beth! I'm trying to remember what color ribbons aren't issued by PC. I remember red, pink, navy, gray was used. Was there a burgundy? I don't remember orange.
Anyone help?
When it gets closer, I could call home office and ask what colors they aren't using.
When it gets closer we can do a thread of who's attending which session.

If it's not in use I vote for YELLOW - the color of friendship! We could write "Chef Success Team" or something like that on it with a marker or we could decide on all buying the same pin (like the initials CS) to put on it if we could find something that's available everywhere...

My favorite thing....

You know what my favorite thing about Chef Success is? I like being able to come here and search for inspiration, flyers, tips, ideas, etc. ON MY OWN TIME. I hate having my inbox filled with 5 different directors forwarding the same emails/flyers. People I don't even know have begun to send me their PC emails because they pulled my address from someone else's email :mad: I like knowing that when I have the time, I can come here and find exactly what I need. My biggest fear with this site though, is that brand new consultants will depend on coming here for their info and not turning to their director/recruiter. This is a FABULOUS supplemental site but please don't use it as a substitute for the personal contact you get through cluster meetings and personal phone calls with your director. :)

Love It!!

This is one of the best things to happen for my business. I have gotten answers, questions, encouragement, tips, hints, suggestions, you name it...it's here... My director is about 3000 miles away and I do speak with her frequently, but she is one person. This is a great way to get fun, fresh ideas and insight. I am so humbled when I come to this site b/c I see how much I have to learn, yet I get great confidence knowing as a beginner, I can answer some questions...
I come here everyday religiously, basically b/c even things I don't need now are beneficial for me to read. Please, please keep posting...
I sometimes feel the same people are answering questions or posting, but even if you have done only 1 show, you have something to share!!! That's what is so great...b/c we all benefit from each other's shows!!!
I do not go to any other PC forum but this one....I'm totally loyal to this, my first and only site!

I love this site, so THANK YOU for hosting it for us! It would be too much fun to get together sometime at conference (a ChefSuccess REAL LIVE meet and greet!) with out screen names and real names, putting faces to the posts :)
My only frustration is that the only way I can post an attachment is converting it into a jpeg file (I use publisher a lot for my work), and pdf files are always too large to post...
Thanks again!

Still deciding?

I have to say. I am just thinking about becoming a consultant. :rolleyes: I have still not decided, I am was very leary, because I have done Mary Kay and tupperware. So being very cautious! But this website is a wonderful resource of information. I think it is very encouraging and builds confidence. All of this information feels realistic and honest! Not candy coated! I love it!

Keep up the good work! What makes this site so good in the people!

Maybe a good section to start would be :

"I'm thinking about becoming a consultant"
