    Oh I see. sorry to hear that Hun. Your allowed to take along a friend with you if you like. If your heads not quite right maybe they can go with you? Your given a notepad and pen to make notes so maybe ur friend could take notes and you can chat about it later on? It lasts for a few hours. Alternatively you could call whoever called you or sent the invite and ask for another talk maybe after Xmas? Xx

    All the ops-events are is to go through what is expected of you as a consultant - the amount of work outside of group, and to give you an idea of the costs - no interview or anything at the event - just information to take home and digest and follow up on if you wish to take it to interview stage.

    It's the start up costs of buying products boards etc. I think someone said it's between £600-£2k depending on which package you like. But before you become one you have to have an interview first.
    I'm going to my consultant talk in a few hours so will report back to you if you like? X

    It's something I'd like to do, but currently I can't fit it in around work. I work full time + 1 in 4 Saturdays and 1 in 8 Sundays. Plus I have a 2 yr old. Maybe in a few years depending on hubby's job & if I can drop down to 4 days at work. Here's hoping!

    Yes please, but I hadn't realised you had to put up that type of money to start.

    Yeah that's what I've heard but I'll have a clearer view of it all later on tonight.
    In order for me' to afford it if I definately go ahead I'm selling my car and down grading. Especially as my car is small and wouldn't be big enough to store all the bits in. I work an 8:30-4 job mon to fri so I'm planning on setting up few classes in evenings and at weekend too. I'm excited about it all. :) xx

    Hiya
    Sorry i havent got back to you! :booboo:
    The talk went well and I have put my name forward for it, but i will probably see if i pass the interview first and then start training this time next year after most of my weight has gone.
    There was a lot of info to take in and I made a lot of notes.
    Basically start up costs start from £815 up to £1650 and depending on how many groups you do too.
    I would say if your interested in it, contact them and you will be sent an invite for opportunity event near your area. You can take a friend/relative with you for extra ears and your joined by a few local consultants who put in their input etc. Its alot to do with advertising and you HAVE to work sundays/bank holidays and deliver 3,000 leaflets within 3 weeks.
    If you want any more info let me know and ill type some of the notes i made to you on here to give you a better look at things.

    It's the advertising bit which has always put me off. That's a lot of leaflets, and I think it's 4 times a year too!!
