Monday Mailbag: Should I Join Cookie Lee?

I know . . . I know. Last week I ranted about this not being a Cookie Lee Blog, but I also said I’d use this as a forum to answer questions. And the questions just keep coming!

Dear Fashion Paramedic: I really like Cookie Lee Jewelry. I’ve been a hostess already once (last September) and had a really good show ($800), and I’m thinking of having another show just before Mother’s Day. The consultant who did my show before gave me a packet containing information on joining her Cookie Lee sales team, but I just don’t think I’ll have the time to do it. My sister and friends say that I’d be great at it, but I’ve seen you write about what it takes to be a consultant, so I’m kind of torn. What would you recommend?

–Sabrina R., Cleveland, OH

Dear Sabrina: You have to answer a few questions for me first. What do you like about the jewelry? What do you like about being a hostess? What type of family situation do you have right now?

If you know in your heart that you don’t have the time to dedicate to becoming a Cookie Lee Consultant, then don’t do it. I say that because one of the last things that you want to happen is to go through with the start up, have two or three shows, then “set it aside” because you’ve got so much going on in your life, then lose interest altogether. Then one day, someone will walk up to you and say, “That’s such a cute bracelet,” and you’ll say, “Oh, yeah. I used to sell Cookie Lee.”

Why would you do that to yourself (and your current Cookie Lee consultant)? As a hostess, you could throw at least one (maybe two) good shows a year, get fantastic amounts of free and discounted jewelry, and receive exclusive hostess gifts. As a consultant who loses interest, you only get a 50% discount on the jewelry (if and when you buy any), and the consultant that recruited you will lose you as a consistent hostess.

So, for you (and others who have been a Cookie Lee hostess and are thinking about becoming a Cookie Lee Consultant), I’ll say this: Do yourself and your consultant a favor and just be a really good hostess (for now). If you ever find that you do have extra time, then give it some more thought. Beyond that, just know that twice a year, you can throw a nice party, earn free jewelry, and let the consultant do all the work!

  1. I thought that was really good advice.

  2. You know, I never understood why anyone who does an MLM would want to recruit their best hostess or customer.
