    Hi all,

    Just wondered at what point you made the decision to become counsellors in the programme?

    Do you have to have maintained for a certain period of time before you can apply or can you start the process once your BMI is appropriate?

    Curious... :)

    I thought that as long as your BMI was under 28 you could apply, you have a phone interview first I think

    Apparently to become CDC some other CDC has to "sponsor" you.
    I am sure they do this for money so she might want to do some extra bucks? Or maybe even it's smthg like multilevel marketing so if she sponsors you she'll get chunk of the profit you make. There must be some incentive there cause no-one would like to have their competitors next door LOL

    Would be interesting if that was right? Perhaps a CDC could answer that on here :rolleyes::D
    Also I wonder if a CDC could say no I'm not interested at all in sponsoring you:confused:

    Well, it would be interesting to know but something tells me that all this info is kept strictly confidential and so far no joy of finding out more. Guess once you become "one of them" you simply have to stay "shush" about it. It's almost like a "conspiracy theory" haha.
    I wonder what are we going (if anything) find out today LOL

    Lol is it a bit like the Free Masons:rotflmao:
    I think the CDC's on here are great but I wonder how they deal with any competition? Perhaps they embrace it as it means the word is spread quicker about CD :confused:

    You need to get your CDC to sponsor you. As far as I'm aware, it has to be your initial CDC who introduced you to CD. They get a percentage of all orders that you place, so it's worth speaking to your CDC and mentioning that it's something that you're interested in.

    I'm sure not all of those responses were there when I posted!! Or I just proved I have the attention span of a 5 year old! But yup Chloe you're right, it is like multilevel marketing. The CDC I saw last week was telling me all about it, the costs, everything. She wanted me to become one, then realised I'd seen someone else already and wasn't impressed!

    Yes, it's put to your first CDC, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they end up being your sponsor...just that they get first 'refusal' ;)

    Does that mean then that a CDC like sponsoring other people?

    Can I ask another question to KD or any other CDCs please. Is this more of a part time job or can it be made into a proper full time job. (Obviously with the right clients.) Thank you to anyone who answers:D
