Time Management Tips for working Your Business at Your Pace

There's no time, there's never any time!!!

Busy with life? Other job? Mommy-hood? Sometimes we FEEL like we spend a lot of time on our Stella & Dot business because we're "thinking" about it all the time. With the excitement of spring and summer, let's focus on less thinking, more doing. We ALL have the same 24 hours in a day and choose how to spend our time. My hope is that for stylists at all levels, this 2-5 hr a week breakdown will be helpful in your time management. Please reach out to me at anytime to set up a coaching call- I'm happy to help create a specific plan for you to help you reach YOUR goals. The most successful stylists in this company all have one thing in common- they dedicate a certain amount of time EVERY WEEK to focus only on booking trunk shows!! The amount of time is up to you and your goals- and making it a part of your weekly routine.

A Sample Week with NO Trunk Show Scheduled

Here's the Breakdown- 2 Hours

1. Watch the Buzz every Tues (5 mins). It's easy to open it up, skim it and never return. The Buzz will keep you current on everything, and save you tons of time looking for answers!

2. Listen to "Tips from the Top" training call every Tues.
(calls are archived each week in SDU- listen to recording Tues night/Wed am if you can't make live, but listen EVERY week- #1 training call of week) (30 mins)

3. 1 hour Booking Blitz (with a pacing partner, your sponsor, upline, regional blitz) This is 1 hour of DEDICATED time to reach out to 20 people about booking EVERY week- once you have regular trunk shows, you can sharpen the skill of booking at shows and not have to blitz anymore, but UNTIL your calendar is where you want it, it's VITAL to spend 1 HOUR A WEEK on focused booking. Follow 3 steps of booking in "Stylist Guide to Success" magazine. If you struggle to book 1 in 10, send me a private msg I promise we can fix it with a coaching call. (30 minute warm up, 60 minute blitz= 90 mins)

TOTAL TIME>> 2 hrs a week. Focus is training & booking.

4. Trunk Show (3 hours total. 90 min to 2 hour show, drive time & entering orders) Focus on booking trunk shows AT trunk shows and soon you can eliminate the need to spend 1 hour a week on booking as you'll maximize your $$'s per hour by doing it AT the show. You can then spend that 1 hour a week on sponsoring if you choose to layer your income.

TOTAL TIME>> 5 hrs a week. Focus is STILL training & booking.

If you have more time.....

There are also Conf Calls w/ Home Office on Booking each week- I highly recommend attending 1 a week until you get your calendar where you want it. Then, even when your calendar is super full, the Tips from the Top call will still help you IMMENSELY when you listen each week.
OTHER TOP TIPS (1 hour)
1. Listen to Danielle's "Words to Say" CD over & over in your car while driving to & from work, school, trunk shows, etc.
2. Review pages 24-34 in the "Stylist Guide to Success" Magazine on booking. (30 min)
3. Review the "Monthly Success Plan" & "Words to Say for the current month (30 min)
