HAPPY 2016!


Well, it's January. . . now what?

With all you have going on with the beginning of the year: kids going back to school, recovering from the holidays, Dot Dollars, etc. are you looking at your trunk show pipeline and thinking, "Well, it's not November or December!" What's happening? While it's natural to feel a little uncertain about what the new year will hold for your business, it's not rational to think that January is going to look like the biggest selling season of the year. Nordstrom, Banana Republic, Target, and Macy's certainly don't. So why should we?

So instead of pondering that, what if we all were to make a pact with ourselves and each other that we're not going to let this thought cross our minds and rather, focus on taking the action to jump start our businesses? After all, we have the personal touch that makes this a beautiful business; a business that, when built on taking action, will yield beautiful results.

So what to do?

It's simple. It's time to get back to basics.

If you've been around for 4 days, 4 months, or 4 years, this is the time for you to take the 3 steps of booking....

Step One: Make a big list.

Step Two: Warm up your contacts.

Step Three: Pick up the phone and follow up.

Want the proverbial "magic pill?" These 3 steps + ACTION on these 3 steps, and you've got it!

So when you make your big list, think of EVERYONE you know. Don't think just friends, family, those you've been asking forever to do a show. Move beyond it to neighbors, co-workers, former co-workers, your past 3 months of customers, Facebook friends, friends from HS, your husbands' co-workers' wives, moms you see at school or daycare, those that you've had a pleasant interaction with.

When you warm up your contacts, there's a simple place to look for an email, and that's the Words To Say (look under January tools in the Stylist Lounge). Cut, paste and make them your own. If you want to brainstorm or have a question on how to approach someone, let me know or post over on our team FB page so that you can have access to the amazing brain trust and community of stylists on our team!

And when you follow up by phone, look to the Words To Say again for your script. Does it feel scary to call? Maybe. Will you get people who say no. Sure you will. But will you get a yes? All bets from me are that you will. Do you think you'll be bothering someone when you call? Banish that thought right now. That's you judging and making assumptions about the reaction that I can guarantee with almost 100% certainty will not be the case. Give it a shot, and let me know how it goes!
