Congrats! You're an Origami Owl Designer and an Official Member of TEAM Mommy Owls!Thank you so much for joining my team. I'm so honored to be your Mentor. You've Taken the Big Step!And now, here is what will happen next. It’s natural to feel nervous when starting your own business. We are here to help you every step of the way. 3-7 days from now, your Origami Owl Kit will arrive. Some kits may take a little longer in transit, please be patient.You will receive various welcome letters from different members of your upline lineage. The emails hopefully will allow you to see what a great support system you have. Please don’t feel overwhelmed. Use these instructions as you need them and feel free to call your mentor with questions. It’s natural to feel nervous when starting your own business. But no worries, we are here to help you every step of the way.Your Origami Owl Support System includes these leaders:Kristine Stevens {Executive Director} Team Shining Jewels charmedowlsleader@gmail.comRochelle Britton {Senior Director} Team Whootie Whoots whootieleader@gmail.comKelly McGee Kucera {Director} Team Crown Jewelsfamilylockets@mail.comKimberly Albertson {Team Leader & Mentor} Team Mommy Owls kimberlyaalbertson@gmail.comFrom this point down, there are various branches of our family tree. Your mentor will be able to tell you your lineage from me to you! It's important to utilize your mentor FIRST if you have questions or need advice. You can then follow the chain up, as needed. Give your mentor the opportunity to grow with you by not skipping them.If you haven't already, follow these steps to success. Get to know your TeamRead Newsletters, Join your mentor's and directors FB Groups, attend local meetings. These are the people who want to see you succeed. There are NO stupid questions. We are all here for you. Designate a workspaceIt does not need to be grand or elaborate, just somewhere you can have everything you need to communicate and keep details of your business organized. Office MINIMUMS: A computer with internet, a printer, place to file, a locket building area and a calendar! Designate work hoursA lot of us have a lot on their plate. A full time job, children, dr. appts. and so on. I find that is is helpful and less stressful if you can desiginate work hours for your Origami Owl business. Use this time to answer emails, check you back office for orders, stamp order forms, put together hostess packets, garden, calling leads, etc. They days and hours are totally up to you and the best part is they are flexiable!Set up your email and voicemailYep, the phone is going to ring! Yep, you will be sending out emails about your new business to prospective customers and Hostesses! Better be ready with an AWESOME EMAIL and Cheerful Voicemail Message! When you have a designated email address just for your Origami Owl business, it tells everyone you are OPEN FOR BUSINESS! When someone calls {even if they are NOT Origami Owl related} your NEW TITLE of "Independent Designer with Origami Owl" on your voicemail is going to spark some conversations about your new endeavor, isn't it?! Commit! Remember what we said about INTENTION! When you let everyone know it is your INTENTION to be the LOCKET LADY in town, that is who you will become! Be sure to follow the P&P Guidelines for setting up an email! No proprietary terms like Origami Owl, O2 or living lockets can be used in your email address.Open a bank accountOpen a separate checking account for your new business. Look for a personal account with minimal fees and an ATM card. Deposit client checks as well as sales and use it to order supplies and pay for business expenses. This makes for MUCH EASIER tracking and accounting at the end of the year when you're trying to do taxes! This is the account where you can deposit customer checks, commissions from corporate, and link your SquareUp, PayAnywhere or other mobile cash register account.Register for Pay QuickerBe on the look out for a email from the Nest regarding registering for your Pay Quicker account. All commissions and team overrides are deposited onto your Pay Quicker Origami Owl debit card. For more info please go to your back office/resources/pay quickerSocial NetworksDesigners are encouraged to create a Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/Instagram ets. fan page. Directions and guidelines are within the company policies and procedures found in the Resource tab in back office. There are a few simple rules to follow. Should you wish to view my page as an example, my web address is :https://www.facebook.com/kimberlyalbertson.independentdesigner http://www.pinterest.com/idkalbertson/boards/Expenses - Tax TimeBe sure to keep a track of your expenses and receipts for your business. This includes trips to the post office, jewelry bar locations, display items and so on.Business LicenseEach city and state are different. Please check with you county as to what is required to run a direct selling business out of your home. Typically it is an annual fee of approx $25.00Sign up for mobile credit card processing.We take cash, credit and checks {well, maybe checks...a debit card might be better--just sayin'}! Start doing research on using a mobile credit processing service. There are many out there. PayAnywhere, Paypal, SquareUp, Intuit...the list goes on and on. The GREAT THING IS, you can run someone's card AT THE EVENT, have it go right into your business account (most take 24 hours to deposit), then turn around and order the product in your back office using YOUR DEBIT CARD linked to that same account. You're never out of pocket on your purchases! All the readers I am aware of are available for FREE when you register your account {they send you the reader}. Remember that you will pay a service fee of about 2.5% - 3% depending on the company, so research well and decide if this is something that is important to your business or not. It's a CONVENIENCE, not a NECESSITY. The other very cool feature of having one of these processors is that it's AN APP on your smartphone or your ipad {both business write offs}, you can categorize your inventory for faster processing, AND in addition to their O2 receipt you are able to EMAIL a credit card receipt as well! *This may work for some designers esp at vendor events. I do not recommend it for Home Jewelry Bars because the credit card processing company does charge you to use it so, you are paying a minimal charge but, the choice is yours.Order Business CardsBusiness cards MUST be purchased through our approved vendor - https://flyersdirect.com/origamiowl/?p=select-template&id=1Get to know your Back OfficeOver the course of the next week, play around in the back office. This will keep you connected. Write down any questions that you may have. Contact your mentor or your closest executive team leader or director, if they are new as well, to help with any questions. Our backoffice will be changing soon, but that shouldn't stop you from learning what we have now. Keep CurrentThe Nest provides us with weekly webinars.

It consists of only 3 little things. Love the products, share the products and find other people to share the products too.Not only do I love hearing about your why but so do others! So share your why with me, your mentor and your customers! Email me and tell me why you decided to join Origami Owl. This helps me understand what I can do to help you achieve your goals.Make your list of 100 immediately. List all the people you know and don't be judgmental of who may or may not love Origami Owl. You never know. 10 friends, 10 relatives, 10 neighbors, 10 acquaintances and 10 people surrounding children is 50 already. Put stars next to people who may need a girls night, who love to entertain or might need some extra cash.Pick a date for your launch party IMMEDIATELY!!!I usually tell people to pick two days. Like a Tuesday/Thursday or a Saturday/Sunday. This way you can invite everyone and if there is a day they can't come, there is a back up party for people who can't make the first one. The launch parties should focus on bookings and sharing Origami Owl with people who might want to start their own business. Don't worry so much about selling products.GET YOUR CALENDAR FULL! Try to book your 2 launch parties, 2 parties from your launch parties and 2 outside bookings. This will give you 6 in the next 4-6 weeks and will get your business booming. Origami Owl Jewelry Bars are sooooo easy. Be sure to watch the training in your workstation to see JUST HOW EASY they can be. ": )First 30 Days {Setting Goals}Here are some examples of Goals to Achieve during your first weeks!Have a Launch Party and Enter Your First OrdersSell 500 PV in the first 15 daysBook 2-3 jewelry bars in 60 daysRecruit your First Team member in the first 90 days.

If you book a Jewelry bar and help me this one time, I promise I will never bug you again to book a party. If you want to book one ever again, it will be because you asked me.
