Hi, Kate and welcome to the board!! I think that's great!! I'm doing pretty-much the same thing. I was home with my 2 kids after my 2nd was born and I was going batty, and needed the adult interaction and something for my brain to focus on other than Barney. I got into Pampered Chef when a friend told me she was selling it, and I've been going strong ever since (almost 2 years).

We could muddle by with just my DH's income, but it's nice to have the extra income that my business brings in, so we don't have arguments over purchases and things like that. I love that I can do parties whenever I want, and it's around mine and my DHs schedule, so we usually never need a babysitter. I LOVE SLAH stuff, and have a ton of it in my house - I had a show last Nov., and earned a bunch of stuff free and 1/2 priced.

Best of luck to you getting started and I think you found the right board to help keep you motivated through the tough times. Stay tight with your team, too, and be sure to attend your regular training meetings, b/c you can really gain valuable information and motivation from those, too (as well as that wonderful adult interaction!!). I've made a bunch of new friends with the girls on my team, as well as some of my hosts, so it's really been fun.

I hope it works out for you - best wishes for the rest of your PG and keep us posted, ok?!

Hi Kate, welcome to the board!

That's great that you're signing with Southern Living, since you have such a passion for decorating already. I think that's key when becoming a part of the Direct Selling community. When you really enjoy and love something, it's so much easier to promote and sell.

Congratulations... and you have my best wishes for the remainder of your pregnancy!
