Goodbye July... Hello August!

Fall 2014!

Whooooo's ready??

August has already started off with a bang, with the start of our new fall products and toms! With convention goers getting first peek at new product (a new perk.. Plan to go next year!). I have to say... I just received my goodies today and I could not be MORE excited about what this is going to do for our business! There are so many new customer groups we can focus on, so many new avenues! Here are just a few of my favorite things:

The {NEW} leather wrap bracelet....ahhhhh...this is truly AMAZING! Now I am a major fan of wrap bracelets, but this one takes the cake. It's construction is amazing, it looks as if it will hold up really well. The way it attaches to the locket, is so sophisticated and fancy and cute! LOVE this one. Definitely a favorite.

The {NEW} lanyard locket! This is a game changer. This is going to give you so many ins that you never had before. Nurses, teachers, retail workers, airline counter workers, etc. Anyone that wears a lanyard to work (there are TONS) can benefit from this. Maybe they didn't buy a locket before because they can't wear it to work with their lanyard, maybe they aren't allowed and maybe it gets tangled. We have the solution! We have toe versions of the lanyard coming out, the first being the already popular lanyard locket and the second being the eternity lanyard (no locket, but still just as beautiful!) Both are great options and still gives even that new group of people great options.

And my third favorite is the {NEW} Core Collection. If you went to convention, you got the gold core bangle with a few super cute dangles (mementos, whatever you wanna call them). These are amazing. The dangles are super cute, and little, and adorable. The affirmation notes for the necklace chains and the giraffe and the Cassiopeia! I absolutely LOVE this line and I think it will tap into another customer base that maybe we missed out on before. Not only do we have the bangles that the cute little dangles and notes and mementos can go on, but you can also just pair them with a dainty chain and you are good to go! This is for someone that maybe is a little more spiritual, likes jewelry with deep meaning, whatever it may be. These are amazing.

Can you wait any longer? Are you SO excited for fall? Every year I am excited to see all the new product and think immediately who I will show and who will love the new items, well this year my list is LONG! People that maybe bought a locket or said they would but didn't, or didn't want one at all are now back on my list. These new products are going to take us far. Doesn't mean you don't have to work for it, because you do. If you want it to be a job and make you money like a job, then treat it like one. These products will definitely set us apart and they could totally change your holiday season, just work it! :)

Special news...

Be all in. Not just for fall, always! :)

Be all in. Give it all you've got. If you fail, oh well. Get up again. This is not a race, it's a journey. And it's one heck of a journey if you let it be. When I started this business, it wasn't easy. I was all in from the beginning. I loved this com pay for what it stood for, for who it was, for what it was doing for designers and customers alike. That has never changed. I absolutely think anyone can be where I am, because I never thought. I would be here. When you love what you do, it never feels like a job. I don't dread going to work everyday, I don't have to listen to others tell me what to do, and I change lives every single day.

What is holding you back?

If it's booking parties, stop doing what you are doing. It's not working. I always tell people, don't rely on the 3 f's: family, friends or Facebook. That is where it's easiest to ask for help, where you feel most comfortable. Well that only works for so long, if at all. Once you get out of your box (I know it's hard, it is hard for me too!), you will find a whole new group of "friends". And there may always be those few friends or family members that want to do parties, but don't rely on it. That can be a bonus. Go to the bank, hand out your cards/catalogs. Tell our story, tell YOUR story. Don't just leave catalogs everywhere, talk to the receptionist. They have down time and guess what they could be looking at when they do?? What about the coffee stand around the corner, your kids school, your job, your favorite restaurant, wherever! It's easy to leave things and hope that someone will pick them up. To tell you the truth, it's not very often that it happens, or atleast not to most people. When you verbally interact with someone you can explain the product, the story, the concept behind our jewelry. When you get them thinking about their story or their family and friends stories, you have won. Thinking outside of the box, or out of your FFF box will help you win. I promise!

This fall we are introducing TONS of new product, over 300, our biggest yet! Don't let this holiday pass you by. Work it, hard. And you will see results!

Now for a little recognition before we go! Our team sales were $283523.30!!

Here are last months TOP in sales ($500+PV)!

Way to go!!
