Qualifying is harder than I had imagined!

Many of you know that I started sellin Pampered Chef a few weeks ago. I never knew that I was into Pampered Chef until I went to a show. There have some pretty cool stuff. So I decided to have a party and see if I could get enough sales to get what I wanted at a pretty cheap price. I was able to get one item half priced, $40 in free product, and 20% discount on the rest! I was stoked!! But when I was making my "wish list" I ran into an all too common problem...I wanted a lot of stuff! So what better way to get to know the products and earn enough money to get what I wanted (and a few other things too) than to become a consultant myself? Right, that's what I did. Anyways, maybe it's because of the economy...but I am having a heck of a time getting people to have a cooking show or catalog party, and I need to have 3 more by August 27 to "qualify." So I am kinda bummed, but I will survive!
On a more positive note, I held my first show as a consultant last night, and I think it went fairly well. I was pretty confident and I had a good time, and I think that the host and guests did as well. ;)


  1. I love Pampered Chef. It is tough right now to do sales. I have that problem with my candle biz, too.

    I hope it picks up. I would try to get the word out about your products and, with the shows, you can set up for online orders, so I would try that. Post the code that can be used to order for a show. I did see a couple days ago where someone was hosting an online show........
    If I can help, let me know. I would gladly post your code for people to order online.

  2. I used to sell Partylite and although I wasn't super addicted to Candles I did love the $ I made and doing shows.
    It was like pulling teeth getting people to have a show. People don't want to be bothered.
    My group leader told me to ask if I could stand out in front of a local grocery or drug store w/ a few peices and have them fill out a questionaire to win one of the product prizes. Maybe you can do that :)
