Pampered Chef: Sales Thought this was funny

    Hey everyone,

    as you all know last month I was pretty fed up with PC and ready to quit. I was given some advice to take these last couple months off and re-organize everything in my life. well i have done that. I did the monthly craft show the day after thanksgiving and ended up with two possible shows for january and over $150 worth of sales!! Some was from here in Miss. and one was from Conyers, GA!!! I was excited over that but didnt think about it a whole bunch. Well last night after drama practice one of my past hosts came up to me and said hey I have $200 worth of orders here that I have been collecting on when can you get them turned in and back to me? I about fell over in the floor because I havent been pushing PC!! So its funny to me that when I AM trying I cant get any shows or orders and when I WASNT trying i ended up with $350 worth of orders!! Know who will tell me that God doesnt work in mysterious ways!! anyways just thought i would share with everyone how things have been turning around for me!! Know if i can book a couple shows i will be off to a good start again!!!!

    That is great. I'm so happy for you.

    I place all my faith in God in everything I do, and he does work in mysterious ways, and all I have to do is, let go and let God. And though things are slow right now, I have full faith that things will pick up when I least expect it.

    In short, have faith. :)

    I'm also happy for you Monica! It's a lesson for us all. We don't always know what our path is but if we open our hearts He will show us the way!

    I have stumbled many times but He is always there to pick me up and show me which fork in the road to take.

    Good luck to you!

We went to the coast to pick up our daughter. this was a very humbling trip since we went were Katrina hit. anyways, we left yesterday afternoon and came back to day. when i got home there was a message on my machine from a lady i met 2 months ago at that craft fair i do every month saying she needed to book a show. I called her and she already has 4 orders and all the people she is inviting hasnt heard of PC and her show isnt until jan. 14th!! i am so excited because i havent had a kitchen show since the end of sept.!! just book shows!! so keep your fingers crossed she wont cancel!!!
