Candy- Thanks so much. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed and appreciated your seminar last weekend. I’m going through a big transition in my life and a dose of “you” was exactly what I needed ! I’ve started the process of making my PC business. I’m calling it The Nesting Chef. I’d love to send you some spices so would you please send me a mailing address ?
Candy, Thank you so much for sending this! And thank you so much for a truly wonderful and inspirational seminar this past weekend! You sparked so many ideas for me, and helped to create a wonderful feeling of energy regarding getting started in this new career! I have been teaching all day computer classes the past two days, and have another one to teach tomorrow. But after that, I will contact Rusty regarding getting my membership card/number. I am excited about logging into Personal Chef Office, and getting started! Thanks again!
I have been actively working my personal chef business since May of this year. Not listening to the wise chefs here, I wasted a bunch of money advertising in my local paper. Only one call. However, I now have 8 clients (regular) who found me on APPCA. THANKS!!!!!! [Emphasis intended — not yelling.]
Hello Candy, Thank you so much for passing this on to me. I just left a phone message with Bridgette and look forward to helping out in any way I can. I have to say the best thing I have ever DONE is join the A.P.C.A. I’m very grateful to you for taking the time to speak with me on the phone and get me set up 6 years. I had my first client 6 weeks after I joined, from the find a chef link and have been thriving eve since. Thanks to you 🙂 Have a great holiday and I will look forward to helping fix Bridgette’s Mom up:)... View Article
To all of you out there waffling about going to a seminar or joining the ranks of the amazing Personal Chefs in this group, stop thinking and do. I attended this past weekend’s seminar in San Diego, and I must say that the information received exceeded my expecations. Thanks to much to Candy and Dennis for opening their lovely home to the six of us. Your warmth and hospitality was surpassed only by the wealth of information and help your supplied. Also thanks to Shellye, Nicole, Mary, Jennifer and Trinette for making this experience amazing. I’ll get away from the gushing now, and repeat; Get off the fence and do... View Article
I couldn’t agree with Kelley more, this weekend was amazing! Candy knows this industry inside and out, Candy is this industry and if you don’t learn it directly from her and her team you’ll probably have a few gaps. The training, information and insight we gained far exceeded the expenses of the weekend. I can’t wait until August!
I just want to say a big thank you for everything to all of you. I started my business almost two years ago, and had barely any clients in 2010. This year, I’m almost too busy!! Everything I’ve done so far has been helped by advice from APPCA – What to put into a Client Interview? – APPCA helped. What to write in a contract? – Again, APPCA. What kind of labels to use on containers for ongoing clients? – APPCA is where I found out. What the choices are for containers in the first place? – You got it; APPCA. I haven’t figured out my taxes yet for this... View Article
This is a shout out to Mamoon (APPCA IT, Personal Chef Hosting). This morning I get a call from a guy inquiring about my service. He asked the usual questions and then he asked: Who did your website and how do you get it right to be number 1 on every Personal Chef search in Charlotte that I do. I told him I belong to the APPCA and that we have our own expert that does these things for us and his reponse was: “Well this guy certainly knows what he is doing and he looks well after you.” Thanks Mamoon!!!! For all the newbies and those that are on... View Article
Candy, I just wanted to thank you for the excellent training class. I really enjoyed it, and got a lot of good tips. It was really nice to be in the group with others like me, who share a passion for good food, cooking and helping others. I am very excited to get my business started, and am in process of creating menus etc. I had first purchased the home study course, but went ahead and attended the training course in San Diego because I learn better in a face to face environment. It was really a good decision on my part, and provided the catalyst to get me going... View Article
