    I just got a call from a previous customer. She told me that her house burnt down. I told her how sorry I was, she told me that it happened in December and that her insurance check just came in. Then it dawned on me why she was calling. She lost all of her PC items and will be placing a huge order. I told her we would make it a catty show and she could just throw out an email to her friends to see if they needed anything as well. I am stoked!!

    It's wonderful that some good came out of the tragedy.

    I'd probably be calling that one a cooking show too, just so she gets some extra $$$, given the situation. Take her some cookies, a bottle of one of the new sauces over cream cheese and crackers, something, and tell her how you did it. I know it's "cheating" a little bit, but in this example I think it's worth it.

    Have you considered making it as housewarming show? Friends might want to see her new house and buy gifts from Pampered Chef along with their own orders...that could be quite a show!!!!

    What a blessing for you (to get the business) and for her (that her insurance is replacing her kitchen stuff) I can't imagine going through a fire, but having insurance to replace things like that is a good thing. Hope her family is all safe, and that God is helping them to deal with the loss of memories and things that are not replaceable.

    She doesn't want to impose on her friends. She was more comfortable in having them get things for themselves if they choose to. I may turn it into a cooking show though.
