I retired last year.
This year, I’m ready to go back to work.
Only, not the same kind of work. The last few years before retirement, I worked a thankless, brutal job of customer service over the phone. This encompassed back-to-back calls of helping people, which would have been okay in-and-of-itself, but they weren’t ordinary people. They were scary, grumpy, rude, threatening, bullying, downright awful people who lived to torment me and destroy any semblance of happiness I may have mustered up between shifts.
No more. Not even. No way.
So, a couple weeks ago I discovered a new way to work and am determined to give it a damned good try. Wish me luck. Pray for me. Adopt a troll doll and give her my name. Point your coffee cup toward The Emerald City. Whatever you can do to spirit me to success.
Thank you. I really appreciate it. I feel a lot less jittery, knowing you are all on my bandwagon. Singing with me. Dancing with me. Taking my self-respect and dignity for a walk. Singing Kumbaya, My Lord. It’s a beautiful thing.
So, I suppose you are asking: What is this big, fancy job of which I gush/speak/sing/whine about?
((((((DRUM ROLL PLEASE))))))
I’m going to be a Pampered Chef Consultant!!
Just take a sec and let it sink in.
- Yes, I can cook.
- Yes, I know how to read a recipe.
- Yes, I have a head for business.
NO, I am not a salesperson!
So maybe it’s time to get a little nervous. Especially since I start tomorrow. Just kidding. I’m okay. Really.
If I’m being completely serious (and honest), I’m going into this with my eyes wide open. I realize that, in order to succeed, I will need help. My sales will come from organizing and running online parties, and those parties come from getting friends and family like you to book a party with me.
So, here’s the pitch…
You knew it was coming.
I need your help. Please consider throwing a party in the next couple months. It is totally done on Facebook, so you can party in your PJ’s if you want to. You invite your friends/family to the group page I create, and I do all the work. You’d be surprised how much people love Pampered Chef. Your sales will quickly rise, and you will be able to load your kitchen up with tons of free stuff.
Courtesy of me. You’re welcome.
Well, and your friends and family on Face book.
Sooooo, that is it in a nutshell. I’m not asking for start-up capital, or a GoFundMe account for work expenses. I don’t need any of that. Pampered Chef provides everything for me except customers. My director will take me under her wing and make sure I have the best sales training around. Of that I am certain, as I have seen her in action, and she is amazing.
So, I love you all and I know you love me.
That won’t ever change. Love is good. Love is kind. Caring is sharing and all that stuff.
Message, email, text, call or holler if you can help me out. Or if you want more info. Or if you’re really mad at me for even asking.
It has not been easy to reach out, because that’s not my persona, but I truly believe in this company and these products, I believe in myself and my capabilities, and I really need something to do besides watching “Family Feud” every day at 3 pm.
