Starting Out as a Pampered Chef Consultant

The Money as Pampered Chef Consultant
Your commission rate depends on the total amount of your sales per month. If you sell $1-$749, you earn 20% commission. This amount is raised incrementally; for example, if you make over $4000 per month, you earn a 25% commission. In addition, you can increase your income by building a downline team. The company website states that a Director can earn as much as $25,000 per year and up from there. As a Consultant, you earn your commissions by selling the company's products to individuals or by having "cooking shows," party-style demonstrations where you can sell your wares.
