Latest copy of Longaberger Destinations....

I love telling my customers (and potential customers) what is going on at Longaberger and Longaberger at Home.  I want to know that Longaberger is more than just a company which sells Baskets, pottery, wrought iron, and accessories, such as food, it is a whole experience when you throw in visiting the shops.  I also love to tell people what they would get if they become a consultant.   From the year that Longaberger got started until 2011, the Longaberger experience was a home consultant would come to your home, they would show the product, and then give you the opportunity to purchase.   The process was long and tedious for both the consultant and the host(ess), but fun.  I will never say that going to people's homes was not fun.  I have a blast when I get show a hostess and guests the quality and the functionality of  Longaberger products, up close and personal.   When the 21st century came in, Longaberger started looking for new ways to show the products, knowing that people's lives got busier.  2011 ushered in online shopping and the online party.  So now customers can shop from their own home, and still get credit for any orders their friends and family decide to order through their party.  This year allows customers to shop the Longaberger at Home, where customers can come in, shop, and if they have a consultant, their purchases can build the consultant's business for incentives and other benefits.  There are currently 9 locations with more to open up later this year.  There are always new opportunities in becoming a Longaberger Home Consultant.  If you love to sell, earn a commission, a discount of 25% on current products and 20% on products on Longaberger at home products, as well as incentives, click on the join my Team tab above this post.Well that is all for today.  I will talk to you soon.   You have a blessed day.

Customer Appreciation Liner Sale

In celebration of the grand opening of the 11th Longaberger
at home showroom, you can purchase 11 cent Medium Market and Tea Liners. Just make any purchase, and you can purchase as many Medium Market and Tea Liners as you like for just 11 cents each! The Customer Appreciation Liner Sale is online only.

Monday, June 18, 2012


This Wednesday's special, Sisters purses, totes and accessories will be on sale at 40% off.  So what is Sisters?   Sisters is Longaberger's tote and purse line.   What I love about Sisters purses and totes is quality as well as durability.  The cloth patterns remind me of Vera Bradley's purses and totes without the Vera Bradley prices.   So if you are a fan of her purses, you can appreciate the Sisters line of purses.   As far as having room to place all of your goodies, not a problem, because there are plenty of real estate to place your phones, wallets, and even your Ipad in all of the purses and totes (except the Crossbody purse which is a smaller purse).

Each year, I look forward to getting a bee bag for our consultant's convention.   I would love to tell you about it but it is a secret.   I will post pictures next month.  If you are looking for an office purse that is not too busy in terms of color, I recommend you try the Medallion collection, which is a black and white combination.  I can go with anything, but dressed down enough to be casual. Going on vacation?  Might I suggest the Fantasy (pink, green, blue, and white) or Daydreamer (green, aqua, navy, and white).  Imagine has sort of an Mediterranean feel, and matches well with Longaberger's Spice market items.

As for styles, you have 7 to choose from:   Stacie tote (which I have in an older fabric called Adorn, is a retired fabric (Reg. $35.50 on sale for $17.75) and can be found on the Longaberger at home site and 9 locations throughout the country) and will be retiring at end of August.   It is more of an organizer bag. Jillian Handbag is smaller, but holds a lot.  Carry Me Away tote (I also have this is a Golden Fields pattern which retired in February 2012, and may be available this fall on the Longaberger at home website) is more of a bigger organizer tote than the Stacie tote, and I can carry a lot of stuff inside. Get away for the Day tote is just that.   If you are going overnight to a friend's house, spending a day at the beach, or traveling on an airplane longer than 5 hours, this is must have.  You can even double it as a diaper bag. Please note that this style will also retire at the end of August. The Crossbody bag is a great little purse for little ladies (ages 6 and up) and for those of us who like to carry a smaller bag.  It is big enough to carry your keys and your cell phone, as well as your money and credit cards, but is compact enough to wear.  The Medium boardwalk basket is back and upgraded.   This time, the handles are made of fabric to match the liner.  The basket itself comes in Warm Brown, Rich Brown, or Black.   Lot of combinations to choose from.  Finally the Recycle tote is perfect for shopping (both grocery and other).  It is great to be green with this tote, and it comes in all of the available sister fabric lines.   Also check out the accessories which match the sisters purses and totes.  

Please note that the current fabric line will be retiring at the end of August.  if you are looking for a fun summer bag, now is the time to order, because summer is slipping away.  I cannot believe that July will be here in a couple of weeks.   Pretty soon, I will be a year older.   Until next time, be blessed.

Remove from the oven, spray with butter spray or rub stick butter over the top to moisten. Sprinkle with powder sugar and enjoy!

Do you have what it takes to sell?

Need extra cash?   I am always asking this question from time to time.  The reason why I ask this question?   I ask this question because someone out there may need a way out of their financial situation.  Someone may have one or two bills which are overwhelming to them, and their present job situation is not enough to help with those bills.   Bills are not the only reason.  There may be many, many reasons why a person may need extra cash.   My own reason was school related.  
I was nearing the end of my schooling at Franklin University, and I needed an internship in marketing.   I have tried time and time again to get one, and failed.  Some did not hired me for reasons unknown, while others hired me, and then found out that the finance department could not pay an intern.  They could not afford me as an unpaid intern either.  I got so fed up with the whole situation until I decided to create my own internship, but what to do.  I decided right there to sell something.   Direct selling was the way to go, but which one?    There are so many to choice from.  Finally, I decided to go with either Pampered Chef or Longaberger.  I inquired into both.  I barely knew anything about Pampered Chef, and I was familiar with Longaberger.  I met with the Pampered Chef rep first.   She explained the business and what was expected of me as a consultant.   I was not happy with the idea that I had to cook during the party.   It wasn't that I was a bad cook.  The problem was my eczema, and during that period, it was flaring up, and even though I would wear gloves during the cooking demos, I was still not sure I wanted to do that.
Next, I had a meeting with Scott, who ended up being my first sponsor.  he was wonderful in explaining everything to me.   I thought I would have no problems, and said yes to the idea, of being an independent sale consultant.   I was nervous at first, because the only times I spoke in front of someone was during my speech class, and when I had to give a report in other classes.  Did I get credit for joining Longaberger?  No I did not. the administrators at the school would not allow it.  Although I had an upline who would sign off any papers that I needed for my assignments, the school said that I needed to be within the company, and being a consultant was not one of the positions within Longaberger.   I still graduated without the internship, but I gain so much more than just a piece of paper.
The Direct Selling Association (DSA), which Longaberger is a proud member of, has 5 reasons for becoming part of a direct selling company like Longaberger:

1.  Be your own boss.   You get to set your own hours, work part-time or full-time, and who you are going to sell to (target market).  It is all up to you.  Every time you engage yourself into your business, you are investing time and money into it.  I invest into a full-time position into being an Independent Home Consultant, not only every time I call someone on the phone to see if they would like to purchase something from me, but that time is also about engaging myself as an online presence and participating in the company's activities.   I feel this is the only way to learn about the Longaberger company full on.  You may not have that much time to spend doing this because you other things that important to you.  Again, it is all up to you.

2.  Save time and money.  The products you sell can often lead to discounts when you make a purchase yourself.  In fact, you could be your own best customer.   There is nothing wrong with that.  For instance, I can get 20% off of all Longaberger products, and if my sales are at a certain level, I may actually get them for free as an incentive for a great sales month.  You do not have an office to go to, so unless you are driving to a meeting or having a party.  Another thing, I do not carry inventory, only samples.  this is a great save if you have problems with space like I do,

3.  Expand your circle of friends.   This can come in the form of your team members, your leader, or the customers you meet.   I have met in all walks of life, and going to convention is great too (more on that in a moment).  You build relationships that often last a lifetime.

4.  Rewards and achievements.  Yes, the rewards are wonderful.  They come in the form of trips, prizes, and earned income.   The more you make per month, the more you earn, and at Longaberger there are several ways to earn your reward.  You can earn those rewards by having online shows, home shows (parties), having a customer order through your own personal website provided by the company, your own personal sales, and working at the any of the 9 Longaberger at home shops.   You can even still have a catalog show and vender at an event. It is up to you where and how you make those earnings to achieve your goals and gain rewards.

5.  Build income.   Who would not want that? After all, it is the main reason why you signed up to become a consultant, whether it is with Longaberger or some other company.   Whatever company you decide to rep for, be sure to know that it is your income, your bread and butter money that you want to build.  

I do hope that you consider if this what you want.   I am head over to convention in a few weeks, and I would love to have you join me.   One other thing, If you do not feel comfortable in front of people and you hate selling, then do not look into this, because direct selling is not for everyone, and if you are thinking that you will become a millionaire from this, think again.  I ask at the beginning of this post if you want to make extra money.   For some people, that is all that it is, extra money.  Direct selling is not some get rich quick scheme. For others, it is about the products.  That is fine. You will have to pay for any business kits up front, including with Longaberger.   If you are pressed for money, you basic no product kit with paperwork will cost around $19.   You can decide to get product, and pay $99 and $199 for the business with product and paperwork.   What's the difference you may ask?  Again, the $19 kit is paperwork, and it is for people who want to just sell online  through they website, social media (facebook and twitter), and through email and blogs.  One of the things I was able to do with this blog was to make my website a page on my blog.  Every time you click on My shop or Longaberger at Home, it will take you to my sites.  The other two kits is just how much product is in each kit, and Longaberger tries to place one product from each product line in the kits. 

So I ask once again, do you have what it takes to be a seller.   If you do, and you think Longaberger is the company for you, contact me, and we will talk or if you are ready, click on the Join my team link above.  

Talk you soon and good night.

Live Long and prosper...drinking coffee

This is not just a saying from Spock of the Original Star Trek series.  while Lenard Nemoy has stopped uttering those words, which made him famous while holding up the hand signal (how does he do that), there may be some truth behind that saying.   I want to share with you an article that shows you some effects about drinking coffee.   Now I know one of the reasons why I drink it.   Thank you, Nicole Ostrow, for writing this article.

Coffee May Help Drinkers Live Longer, U.S. Study Suggests

Coffee, caffeinated or decaffeinated, may help extend the lives of people who drink it daily, a U.S. study found.
Men who drank 2 to 3 cups a day had a 10 percent chance of outliving those who drank no coffee, while women had a 13 percent advantage, according to research published yesterday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The study by researchers at the National Cancer Institute is the largest to compare coffee drinkers with those who avoid it to determine whether the beverage can delay the risk of dying from ailments such as heart disease, diabetes or respiratory illness, said Neal Freedman, the lead study author. It’s unclear why coffee may be beneficial and more research is needed to study that question, he said.
The results “offer a little bit of reassurance to coffee drinkers who like drinking coffee that it won’t affect health,” saidFreedman, an investigator at the NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics in Rockville, Maryland, in a May 14 telephone interview. “It doesn’t seem to increase one’s risk of dying.”
Still, “the association between coffee and mortality has been unclear,” he said. “This is an observational study so we don’t know for certain coffee is having a cause and effect.”
Americans drank 77.4 billion cups of coffee valued at $35.8 billion in the 12 months ended June 30, 2011, according to a Sept. 7 statement by the research firm StudyLogic. About 64 percent of U.S. adults drink coffee every day and 73 percent drink it weekly, according to the New York-based National Coffee Association. Americans consume about 3.2 cups of coffee a day, the group said.

National Survey

The researchers looked at more than 402,000 men and women who were part of the National Institutes of Health-AARP Diet and Health Study and were 50 to 71 years old at the start of the trial. Coffee consumption was assessed one time when the patients entered the trial. Those with cancer, heart disease and stroke were excluded.
From 1995 to 2008, 33,731 men and 18,784 women died.
The study found that men who drank 2 to 3 cups a day had a 14 percent lower risk of dying from heart disease, 17 percent lower risk of dying from respiratory disease, 16 percent decreased chance of dying from stroke and a 25 percent lower risk of dying from diabetes than those who drank no coffee.

Women’s Results

Women who consumed 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day had a 15 percent lower chance of dying from heart disease, 21 percent lower risk of dying from respiratory disease, 7 percent decreased chance of dying from stroke and a 23 percent lower risk of dying from diabetes.
In most cases, drinking six or more cups a coffee a day for men and women lowered the risk even further, the study showed.
Coffee wasn’t associated with a lower risk of dying from cancer in women. In men who drank the most coffee, there was a slightly higher chance of dying from cancer, the research reported.
The study, which was funded by the National Institutes of Health, may not reflect long-term patterns of coffee consumption and information on how the coffee was prepared also wasn’t included in the research.
Freedman said there are more than 1,000 compounds of coffee that may affect health. More studies are needed on the compounds and the effects coffee has on the death risk in people with a previous history of disease.
