"I wanna see you be BRAVE"

This song has become our team motto lately I think!
Can you picture us walking across the stage to this song when WE ACHIEVE OUR GOALS?
"Say what you wanna say... And let the words fall out... Honestly I WANNA SEE YOU BE BRAVE" - Sara Barrellis

(By the way there is a straight up Hoopla style choreographed dance bit at about 2:44 in the video... one of you clever girls might have to teach it to us so we have our own team dance!)


A couple of Hooplas ago, the ever-charming Mike Lohner, our Chariman, told us “someone is going to be successful in this business and it might as well be you.” And I took that so to heart. He also said that the moment we DECIDE to find our JOY and our HAPPY in this business; the moment that we DECIDE to be successful, is the moment it comes to be.

I had a 'moment' this year at Hoopla when Jessica Herrin asked if we were going for a goal and a few hands shot up, a few kept their hands firmly glued to their sides, and then right in the middle were those of us who timidly and hesitantly raised our hands up--- enough that she could see us but not enough that she could see us. :) I was one of them. Then Jessica, in her gracious and yet convicting way, said something like "if your hand isn't up there, do you really mean it? Do you REALLY want it? Because if you don't know if you want it are you really going to work for it?"

It was such an amazing moment of honestly and realization for me. I thought I was a hand shooter-uper, but my protective instincts stepped in and kept my hand safely a-tiny-bit-up-but-almost-out-of-view of the CEO. :) Saboteurs and fears are sneaky like that. They trick us into thinking that luck or circumstances, or even some innate deficiency is holding us back. But when your vision is clear and your Joy is defined, it comes down to the DECISION. To want it, work for it, OWN IT, and claim it.... after all, wouldn’t you rather BE THE PERSON WHO REALLY WENT FOR IT than the person who didn’t try?

No matter WHAT it is.... it starts with BOOKING! (Make that your #1 focus right now!)


Take 8 minutes and watch this video- on how to build up your contact know WAY more people than you think you do!!

And don't be afraid to whip out a map, draw a 1-2 hour radius around yourself... and make a plan to GO & GROW!! (I'm working on Lansing/East Lansing and Midland this year!)

So let’s hear from you!



  • Identify your goal- what spells Happy for you?
  • Make it clear, make it identifiable, give it a framework/timeline: Promote to Associate stylist, earn $1,000 a month, earn the Glam Getaway to the Dominican Republic
  • While you’re at it- name that Saboteur in your head who tells you (can’t, aren’t something enough, will fail etc). When you identify and name the bad guy you can keep him at bay!


  • This is your one beautiful life. What are you going to do with it?
  • Stop having pity parties & start having jewelry parties & make this happen. When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.
  • Share it -with Sponsor or Pacing Partner & support network.

and then….


  • Fill up your calendar with Trunk Shows. What you want in November starts by developing a plan now!
  • Print & go for Quick Start BINGO over the next 6 weeks to maximize this time. Find it in the Lounge to print by EOD today.
  • Earn that Quick Start prize for Glam and Join the 6-week Quick Start Coaching Program.
