Having a tough time 'blessing and releasing'. A former student (I have known her since she was in seventh grade and we have been FB friends for some time) that had a show for me last year (her past host discount expires at the end of November) just posted she has signed up to be a consultant. I welcomed her to the business and asked who she signed up under. She told me someone she met at an airport. I asked if the she had been asked if she had a consultant. She said yes. She told the consultant that she had a consultant 'in the past'. She then apologized and said she felt it was what she was being lead to do and wanted to be with the company. (I had mentioned to her before if she was ever interested to let me know; she was not at the time.) I told her no problem after she apologized, but it did hurt that she said I was in the past. Her mom works in my school district and she has ordered from me a number of times. Her mom has a bridal shower for her and she actually booked her show from the one her mom had. Turns out the lady she signed under is suppose to be a biggie with the company and lives in another state. I told her if she has any questions to ask as we try to always help each other. I asked if she wanted me to remover her from my newsletter and she said yes. It felt like a punch; I would never think of someone being 'in the past' if it was less than a year. When someone tells me they have had a consultant I always ask the consultant name and if they still hear from them. All this said I am happy for her and she is very excited to start her new adventure. I am not really asking for advice I guess I just needed to tell others; this could happen to anyone.
