Enthusiasm, gotta love it!

Did you know enthusiasm is contagious? I just recruited my 11th person for my teaporia company, and she is extrememly positive and a go getter. Teaporia not only has excellent products, but is a free company to join. I need to make my quota, so any purchase will help me make my quota. Choose from our gluten free products to our kids line! Here's the link,

Buy or sell I'd love to have you!

It's been a while since I've written an On my mind note. The vendor chat sites are so competitive it's really getting quite nasty. So I thought I would write a little something about what is on my mind. For those that don't know, I've had vendor parties on Fridays for over 2 yrs. Yahoo blasts started with vendor parties in order to get people to come to these parties. (just a little background) When the owners of the sites became familiar with each other, they were professional and courteous as to NOT have parties on the same nights as others. This served all well, and many had a blast. It then grew into a monster...everyone wanted to make money and do vendor parties. So then came party hopping.

Party hopping is where potential customers, buyers, and other vendors were in more than one party room. This served well because it provided people the ability to see more sales and do more networking.

Zoom to 2009....Suddenly for some free sites party hopping is a problem. For the record, I do not see it as a problem. Those with restrictive party room policies only hurt themselves. For me to tell a customer where she/he can go to purchase or network in my opinion is unfair, and borders on being unamerican. I mean who am I to tell you where you can go??? The only steadfast rules I have at caroles party central is 1)be courteous, kind, and professional to all. 2) interuppt as little as possible 3) no back selling 4) pay all vendors 5) change name in fair if asked, and if not you will be banned for protection against hackers and anyone else. 6) be on time, and pay on time 7) stay for at least one presentation before or after yours. 8) if you promise a prize as a vendor, it is up to you to make sure your winners get your prize. If they do not get it, you will not be allowed to present in my room until prize is received. I will never tell you, that as a customer or friend you can't be in more than one chat. Sure arguments can be made, but I really feel we are all adults, and should be allowed to go shop where, when and with whom we want. Party hopping doesn't necessarily mean people aren't paying attention, according to its critics. People step away from their computers for a variety of reasons, and necessarily because they are in multiple chat rooms. YOU can not MAKE SURE people are paying attention or guarentee sales no matter what my critics may say. This was just on my mind. Feel free to give me your opinion or not. Have fun partying everyone, and don't forget Caroles Party Central.

Weight Loss Challenge!/Happenings from our vacation

Well it has begun! My hubby is excited about our next vacation to New York City...that's not why he challenged me. Although I do look forward to it. It'll be nice to see my handsome husband get back into the shape he once was. He has two dynamite kids to keep up with. They really are a bundle of energy. No, it came when I said I'd love to take the girls to Wyoming or Montanna to go horse back riding. Hence the rub, one has to be under 250 to ride a horse! So wish me luck. I said we are to loose 10 pounds by December, he wants to loose 50 by vacation time next year. We shall see what happens.

We went to Walt Disney World on our vacation this year. It was Beccas' 2nd airplane ride, and am so glad we all made it back in one peice. Of course we couldn't have an uneventful vacation. I ended up hurting my shoulder, and it took three doctors to determine it wasn't dislocated. I go to my own doctor this saturday. It was, and still is very painful, although I am able to move it a little better. Chuck had to help me with my bra on or I had to keep it on. I was wishing I had help this morning, it wasn't easy! Abby tried to help me, bless her soul. I think I may need some physical therapy, but will let the doctor decide that. All in all, I think the girls, Chuck and I had a great trip. It was fun seeing all the characters, parades, and rides. Becca is a real daredevil, and Abby still is my waterbug!! So is Becca! My girls do make me feel young, and I wish I could bottle up their energy. Abby bought back these cool light up drumsticks from Disney! They really are a cool toy for all. Now how can I top that for Christmas?

That's all for now.

Peace out.
