Have dropped a couple of clients lately (accounts type stuff) and am thinking of doing a couple of mailshots for some more work. But then I was half tempted by Pampered Chef - had a lok at their web site and it looked v. impressive - stuff I'd buy myself. or The Body Shop - or Virgin.
BUT - is it hard work - going out at nights all the time (esp. in winter)??
I am also thinking about Pampered chef, but am very unsure about the selling. I am struggling to book my 6 parties that i need to start. That is because I do not wantto go into my friends houses and try to get money from their friends.
A friend of mine is a pampered chef consultant. It is hard work and she is often out till 10:30/11:00 3/4 nights a week. But she was saying this morning that she often does up to 2 grand in sales a month and earns 20% of that in commission.
I think reality is that there's no such thing as easy money.
I am Pampered Chef consultant and if you want to chat more I have placed an advert on the website on the classifieds for business. If you go there I will tell you more about it. The reason you have to have 6 parites is just to allow it if you have cancellations. Unfortunatly they sometimes happen. When I started actually only 2 of my initial parties booked did actually happen but I still got all my four within a month. You don't have to do evenings as you can do coofee mornings and they works just as well. I also only do 1 to 2 parties per week and I don't work half terms or school holiday. Just go to job available for those with children. Very good pay! Doing cooking demonstrations!and maybe we can talk about it more freely!!!
Or take a look at this opportunity (under 'The Opportunity' at the bottom of the site- it's nice because it's more about saving people money. You can also easily do it in the daytime, when kids have a playdate etc.
I do The Body Shop At Home parties and in all truth you can find with any party plan company that its a bit like a roller coaster, sometimes its great and you earn loads , and sometimes its hard work, however saying that on the run up to Christmas - i know that for 2-3 hours work i will earn an average of £50 - £80 + as people actually want me to do their parties so they can get their gifts sorted. its the type of thing you can run along side another party plan too. and til the end of the month, there's a mini offer - just to be a christmas seller. if any one would like to know more - i'd be happy to help
Hi Tracy, I've just started as an Usborne organiser and I'm already very into it. The books are fantastic and the hours will be a lot more suitable than something more adults only. I'm not planning on doing any late nights and I can take my LO with me. If you want to know more e-mail me at email@example.com
Sorry TracyK, what I meant was *which one* did you look at? One of the two sites I linked seems less professional than the other, but I was just interested to learn which one you were referring to and whether your thoughts agreed with mine! Apologies for the confusion. SP [a bit ashamed of my nosiness now!]
I think I googled and it took me to chocoliciousuk.co.uk. On home page they spelled several wrongly. Also the photos are very grainy and not good quality. Not glossy and decadent - which is the look I'd be going for if I were them. What did you think?
