Almost a year ago (November 2010) I decided to start doing In-Home parties for Tastefully Simple. I was still active with Passion Parties and I was going to see which one was better for me and go forward from there. I gave myself a year to make that decision. Amazingly enough it didn't take me 6 months to see what's right for me.
I watch people post on Facebook and tell people how amazing their job is and while I know a lot of people are truly happy that a lot of people aren't as happy as they say they are but they want to build a team so they are never negative when they post.
When I first started with Tastefully Simple I thought "this will be great, I love food and my customer base has so many more options that with Passion Parties". Plus, I figured anyone not interested in toys would probably be interested in food since everyone eats. :-)
Tastefully Simple has proven to be so much more than that to me. Yes, my customer base is broader but it goes beyond that. I have Hosts and Customers on my Facebook and we interact with each other. We can joke, laugh, be serious, whatever. I realized that my Passion Parties Hosts and Customers don't really interact with me and I figure that's because I know intimate details about their life and they don't want to explain how they know me. LOL
Tastefully Simple has also shown that it is essentially drama-free. Yes, I know that whenever you put a big group of women together this is bound to be some drama and that is there but man oh man, there isn't the drama that there is with Passion Parties. I wasn't ashamed of what I did, I was helping people with their relationships, opening up lines of communication, helping people keep the spice in so there was less boredom and cheating, etc. What I was ashamed of was being associated with a lot of the other consultants. The saying about laying with dogs gets you fleas is true. Even if you don't get fleas, everyone who sees you thinks you have them.
I can't say enough how happy I am to be where I am at with Tastefully Simple. I am by no means done and just letting it be but I am constantly building my team, my customer base; my business. I am truly happy with what I do. I worried that I wouldn't be able to let go of Passion Parties and now I think......"what took you so long?".
So, as you see my posts or receive emails from me sharing something from Tastefully Simple please know that I believe in this company 100% and am only trying to share this 'gem' with everyone! It hasn't disappointed me and it hasn't disappointed any of my customers or team members.
I will close with a shameless plug of my website
