Are you at the recommended skill levels? Even then you'll get some. I just want to check everything!

yeah.
well i was just wondering.  when i get "skill points" or whatever it only lets me apply them to my brewing skill so i was wondering what i have to do to add to my other skills.  i'll just keep playing and see.thanks.

You have to be at level 16 I believe, before you can start putting them to marketing. There's a post from the CafeMom Team. I'll go find it and be right back with the info!

Ok... if you haven't checked out the posts in the Game Help and Rules forum I recommend that you do!

The post that has your specific answer is titled Energy, Experience, Skill? What the heck do all of these words mean?!

The answer to your skill question is:
Skill Points - Skill points control your ability to do certain things in the game.  At first, you only start with the Brewing skill, which controls what kind of coffee you can make and how good you are at it.  Later, you'll learn the Marketing and Hostessing skills!  After level 4, each time you advance a level, you get a free skill point to increase a skill.  You can only increase your brewing skill until level 16 when you can start increasing your Marketing skill.  At level 25, you can start increasing your Hostessing Skill.

In other words your skills go to brewing up to level 16. At that point YOU chose if you want them to go to brewing or marketing. Once you reach level 25 you can also add them to hostessing. =)
