Now that I have been working on the candles more I've been seeing some stupid people. One guy contacted me via email stating he wanted to sign up as a consultant. I replied with times I had available to talk and what does he do call 4 times during a time I was not available. So I called him later and he said he was having a catalog party so he could enter it as his first party and that he received a catalog from another consultant but couldn't get in touch with them. So I sent him some and he hasn't received them. He seems to think I have some kind of in with the post office. 

I don't kind helping people but not stupid people who think I have nothing else going on but talking to him.

Yep still working it

I have a few networking events in the next few days with the chamber of commerce. I'm excited about it. You never know what you'll get from them

I also stated dog walking. I have one dog so far. She's a golden retriever and name is Tabasco. She's a great dog. I don't walk her every day, but a few times a day. 

All in all things are slowly falling into place.

Life with candles

The life with candles is slowly getting better.  Since I have been working it more I'm starting reach out to more people.  I know it's a matter of time before someone does a fundraiser or puts in a big order.

I have 2 chamber of commerce events next week and I am excited about it.  Tomorrow I am doing an event in Woodstock. I cannot wait and it's free. I have to take advantage of the free things when I can.

I will also be walking my Aunt's dog once a day. So I'll be making money and be able to make more contacts.

Still working it. I think.

So far I have had 1 phone interview. It was for a retail position. Not really what I was looking for but it gave me experience talking about myself. 

The candles. Yes those smelly things. I have 3 chamber of commerce events this month. So hopefully I get some parties. Because that is the best part of the whole candle selling business. I have my new cards that are quite wonderful.

Go me. I love things that smell good. Like Gold Canyon Candles.

The candle journey

The Gold Canyon Candle journey continues. I have one book party going on and a vendor event on Saturday. I also joined a networking group with other direct sales women.  Convention is less then 2 months away and I cannot wait.  I plan on having more partied and getting more online orders.

I also have plans on getting into a hotel in Delevan Wisconsin to be able to showcase the candles. It will help a lot.

The search continues and selling candles

Since I was let go from job right before the holiday I have applied for a few jobs. Nothing really jumps out at me that I want to do. So I have been working on my candle business. I have one catalog party going and someone interested in doing a fundraiser. This is a good sign. All in time I will have the greatest candle business or I will be poor. 

I will continue to look for jobs but we will see what happens.
