The Juicy Info- Now Let's Really Get Started!

What do I do Next?

Getting the 411 on what to do, product information, and all the files/resources you can get your hands on because you want to read, take in the knowledge, and run with it.

First of all, get out that great book that came with your starter kit! It is the spiral bound book called START LIVING YOUR DREAMS. Read it!! It is a wonderful training guide for you, full of information, and it also includes checklists and how to do your first Jewelry Bar. Seriously, it is an awesome book.

Next, study the Points of Difference flier (see below for link)! It is important that you have product knowledge of what you are selling! You can also find a bunch of info on our team Google Drive!

If you are on Facebook, you can request to join:


***Pay particular attention to Origami Owl's Polices and Procedures (see below for link)!

I recommend you print this, three hole punch the papers and put this in a binder for reference.

Here are some tips to help you start your Origami Owl business on the fast track!

  • Designate a workspace. The first step is to select one location for your workspace. Ideally, this is a designated home office, but some of us may not have the space in our home, So this space can be the kitchen table, a small desk in your bedroom, etc. Whatever the space, it is important that you make this your space. Carving out a home office space, can help you be more productive at home and maintain your sanity when family and household issues threaten to impede your work.
  • Set up your email- you are an excited new Designer, you will be sending out emails about your new business to prospective customers and hostesses When you have a designated email address just for your Origami Owl business, it tells everyone you are OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Be sure to follow the P&P Guidelines for setting up an email. No proprietary, trademarked terms. You can not use origamiowl, livinglockets, or O2 in your email address. Something simple like amyowl@gmail.com or owl.amy@gmail.com is great! Having an email just for your Origami Owl business is a great way to keep organized with all the communications you will be having between you and Hostesses, customers, and your Mentor and leaders.
  • Open a bank account. Open 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 credit card swiper account. Is this mandatory? NO!
  • Sign up for mobile credit card processing.

    Do research on using a mobile credit processing service. There are many out there. PayAnywhere, Paypal, SquareUp, Intuit...the list goes on and on. Even though YES, the Origami Owl backoffice does run credit cards for free through the party tab, it is only for when you are placing orders. The great thing about having a mobile credit card swiper is that you can run someone's card at the event, have it go directly into your business account (most take 24 hours to deposit), then turn around and order the product in your back office using debit card linked to that same account. For the most part, they are available for free when you register your account and they send you the reader. You may 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.


  • 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. And you can contact them using your...GASP! Brand new email address!

  • Pick a date for your launch party IMMEDIATELY!!! When will your DEBUT be? And who will be attending this debut? I know that is an exciting thought!! 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! Schedule your launch party, and try to get 2 parties from your launch party and 2 outside bookings. This will give you 5 in the next 4-6 weeks and will get your business booming. Origami Owl Jewelry Bars are easy and so much fun! But it is even more full when you are excited, enthusiastic, and get the balling rolling!!!!

Yep, there's more!

Marketing Yourself and Your New Business as an O2 Independent Designer!

First of all, order yourself some beautiful and high quality, pre-designed business card at:


For marketing and branding purposes and to keep the company's image consistent and because the Nest said so, we can only order cards through this site.


Go ahead and set up a Facebook business page and share it with your friends and family!

When you are ready to create your page here are some simple directions in this video from the Nest: http://vimeo.com/73182972 password: oocall and fast forward to min 9:58. Great and simple instructions!

Remember, your Facebook page needs to follow O2 compliancy, therefore your page's name has to be Origami Owl- your name, Independent Designer
And that is it! Now you can add pictures and whatever you would like. BUT, be diligent in crediting photo sources. If you know you are not the one who took the picture, either do not use it, or credit the person who took the picture.

The best way to avoid copyright drama is to use pictures that are from your backoffice, ones that have a watermark on them, or ones you have taken yourself. Remember, we are being a force for good, and editing or cropping out another Designer's name is disrespecting them, because their time and efforts went into creating the beautiful locket photo. Our audience does not know that the Designer's name is another Designer. They see that as a photographer's signature on her work. If it is their website and/or Designer info on the picture, just do not use that picture. Simple.

***Remember, you are now a representative of Origami Owl. Please make sure your posts reflect the company you represent and YOU in a good light. Do not post anything that may offend others or cause controversy. We all come from different backgrounds, and have different beliefs. We all have our own story- that is what Origami Owl is all about- telling our stories, which are all different! As we celebrate our diversity, always choose to be respectful. We never know who is looking at our page. HOOT!!!
