Hi fellow Texans,

I live between Sam Rayburn & Toledo Bend, almost to Louisiana. I've been doing some demo's for Quality.. These people are the arm pits of the earth to put it mildly. Grrr. I'd love to do demo's/MS's/merchandising for companies in my area that ACTUALLY pay as promised. If anyone has any leads please give me a shout.

Thanks

Hi Mollie,
Love your part of the country. I spent a week on vacation a few years ago on Rayburn at a friends condo. Really enjoyed it.

I would also like to get set up with a good merchandising company and not do so much ms'ng. If I hear of anything, I'll let you know and you do the same, OK?

Have any of you fellow Texans done any Bank shops for ath power? I've got one coming up next Monday. It seems pretty simple, role playing and showing interest in opening a personal checking account.

And Pam G, GOOD LUCK to you

Hi group - I'm restarting my MS career part time and thought I'd drop in and get acquainted. Some of you I know, to the ones I don't - howdy! Hi, MsJudyP, remember me?

Gay, I have done many bank shops for ath power. Mine were pretty straight forward, just act like you want to open an account. Make sure you can tell them how much you usually keep in different bank accounts - I sometimes got flustered and couldn't remember what to say

Thank you very much for the welcome!
I was curious how far do most of you drive from your homes to do MS's and Merchandising? So far I have gone like 120 miles one way.

Hello Texas Shoppers!!

Im a NC shopper who will be mini-vacationing in Dallas in a few weeks. I was wondering if any of my fellow shoppers could give me some advice on what to see/getting around while I'm there? I will be staying at the Hyatt Regency. My sister-in-law is coming to town for the Mary Kay convention and myself and my 6 yr old daughter are coming with her!! Is the downtown area safe for my daughter and I to venture out? I would appreciate any advice you can give.

Thank you!!

Hi VickieB,

Welcome to Dallas!!

Yes, it is ok for you and your daughter to venture downtown during the day but not at night by yourselves. There are alot of activities in the downtown area not far from the Hyatt. Just to mention a few:

West End Market Place (old storefronts and warehouses that were converted into shopping and entertainment.)

Fair Park (it has Science Place and they usually have activities for kids. It also has museums and an aquarium.

The Dallas Museum of Art has Jazz Under The Stars on Thursday nights and you can take a picnic.

The downtown library usually has activities for kids too.

All of the above are in the downtown area and would be easy to get to. The Hyatt will have a guide I imagine showing where all of these places are.

If you have the ability to get to Ft. Worth while you are here I think you would enjoy the Stockyards, The Kimball Museum, and the Ft. Worth Zoo is one of the best zoos I have ever been too.

You can also catch the trolly not far from downtown and go sightseeing.

If I can think of anything else I will let you know.

I would love to go to NC sometime. My daughter and her friend are headed to Atchison, KS in a few weeks, to take my daughter's friend home. My daughter might stay for 2 weeks. They have been arguing since she got here. They are 14 and PMSing.

I am in Van, which is not far from the Dallas area. I love shopping in Dallas, it is so much fun. My daughter especially loves the Galleria there.

I'm game Any suggestions as to where a central location is that we could meet up? I'll have to get a map. Let's see, we have Lindale, Troup, Lufkin, Longview and Pittsburg representing east Texas right? Did I miss someone?

I'm pretty flexible, am not really doing a whole lot of ms'ing, only have 4 jobs lined up for July so far.

Hey, Jacksonville is about an hour from all of us. A little more for some and little less for others, but not much. So how about there? Now all someone has to do is figure out a date and time!

Jacksonville sounds fine to me. I've only been there once, but it's not too far for me to drive. I don't remember any landmarks there, though. Maybe they have a Pizza Hut or something that we all could easily find.

You're right Chrissy, timing is going to be the problem. The only dates I have filled so far in July is the 5th, 6th, 16th & 20th. Other than my MS jobs, I'm free anytime. Anyone who is interested in meeting with us, why don't you tell us the dates you can't make it and we'll start eliminating dates.

Ruth, I'm curious, how do you do your shops if you don't drive? Do you mostly do demos? If you could catch a ride to Longview, I'd be happy for you to ride to Jacksonville (if that's where we decide to meet) with me.

I do my mystery shops when someone just carries me and they stay in the car when i do my shop and when I am done I come out and then we leave I have not done any demos in a few months for some reason these demo companies are telling me that they dont have any work for me and when I go to the stores there is a ton of people there doing demos. I am sorry I cant even find a way to longview becuase that is too far.

Maybe I can pay someone to come to pittsburg and pick me up anybody interested drop me a note and tell me how much you would charge me becuase I am interested in attending this meeting

thanks ruth mcanally
