Business Basics - Front and Center

Many of you have heard/seen the changes coming with our comp plan and our new dashboard in the Stylist Lounge. All of this will make our jobs easier, more accessible and allow more time for the important things like booking & sponsoring.

While it is SO tempting to focus on all of the changes coming our way, the heart of our business is booking trunk shows. This is absolutely my focus right now and I encourage it to be yours, too.

To help us get shows on our calendar, the September Words to Say are posted in the Lounge: http://com.stelladot.stylists.s3.amazonaws.com/SDU/September2014SuccessPlanandWordstoSay.pdf

In addition, there is also a Booking Blitz set for Tuesday:
Date: Tuesday, Sept. 16th
Time: 3pmPT/5pmCT/6pmET
Dial in: (800) 747-5150
Access Code: 6977091

Be sure and check out the Sept. Training calendar in Stella & Dot University! (under the Learn & Discuss Tab, then click September Tools)

12 DAYS OF STELLA

Have you seen the Gemstones Incentive 12 Days of Stella?! LOVE!!! We did this last year and it was amazing and so fun. We all filled our calendar for the fall and reaped the rewards of jewelry credit, great commission and incentives. Not to mention the chance to win a $500 shopping spree! Well, it was supposed to end on the 12th, BUT... Tysh has extended it through Friday, September 19th!

Here's the scoop:

For one more week .... book 12 trunk shows to be held between September 1-December 31st, 2014 AND you'll be entered in a drawing for 5 $500 shopping sprees! Prize to be awarded AFTER all 12 qualified trunk show occur. Trunk Shows must be $500 in sales and have 4 unique orders to qualify to receive the $500 shopping spree. ALL current trunk shows booked DO count. Vendor Events and ONLINE trunk shows DO NOT count.

My Thought for the Week

I love the picture above. I read it almost every day. Do you ever think you try and try and nothing is happening? Well, that is NORMAL! Keep in mind, that while you are trying to get trunk shows on the books, and getting No's, this is completely normal. Remember, it takes 10 calls to get 1 show. Wow. This means you need to have a list of 20 potential hostesses to get at least 2 shows. So, as you have fun trying to book your 12 shows for the season, remember that is isn't going to happen overnight. Warm up potentials every day, and FOLLOW-UP! Make that call, what's the worst thing they can say? "No". You will hear No and you will be fine. I promise. It will just make hearing "Yes" that much better.

Have a GREAT week! If you need me, remember I am a phone call away!
