So glad that there is a Pampered Chef group on SP. I am a fairly new consultant who has just relocated to a new area. I have not submitted a show in 2 months because I do not know ANYONE in my new town. I absolutly love my business and everything that Pampered Chef has to offer. I am looking forward to getting to know other Pampered Chef consultants and Pampered Chef lovers!!! Hope everyone is having a blessed day!!! :) <BR> Amy Fri, 12 Aug 2011 18:24:43 EST Organizing my TPC business http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x10124x43218349 I've been struggling with keeping track of my home business time, staying focused on a business task in the evening. I'm finding that I'm not getting my other household chores done on that schedule that I use to. My paperwork is getting out of control. I'm multitasking, multi-jobbing, multi-thinking. It's not running smoothly. I need to "re-group" and get better organized, in my office and in my head! Any tips on keeping business time separate and staying "on task" while in a home office??

Also, want to stay on my food plan but will need to practice the Pampered Chef recipes to do at shows. How to stay on track?? Any suggestions?

I learned some great things from a bunch of wonderful people. <BR> <BR> They always make something of course.

I forgot the catalogs! <BR> <BR> My second show - 0 people, $0 in orders. I forgot the Deep Covered Baker that we were using to make the recipe! It really couldn't have happened at a better show really. She might have a few orders yet before the show actually closes and I thought the two extremes were interesting! <BR> <BR> Are there any shows you have been to or held that has extremes?

What in the world?... I thought "oh this is great, yeah I am going to do great!" but my director was coming along too and so I managed to catch her in time for her to bring some and we had a great time. I guess if that's the only thing I forget I am doing well! <BR> <BR> How about yours?

My opportunity knocked on the door and I answered it. It's a little scary - it's all new. I am used to daycares and the 8-5 job. This is a bit more involved and I am glad!
