National Convention Recap

Big image
National Convention was so OWL-some and inspiring. Got to laugh, cry, share stories, and learn with other amazing owls. Beautiful new products were displayed, loved hearing "Everybody Gets One", and inspired to always be a "Force for Good".


Hoping everyone can mark their calendars for next year's convention that is scheduled for July 24-26, 2014.

{Jewelry Bar Tips}

  • One Jewelry Bar can kick off your business
  • Schedule you first - print out calendar and highlight available dates (maybe in green -- $$ making activity)
  • Have them select a date from those available, pencil them in and tell them you will follow up with them in X days. Ensure you call back on date you told them you would.
  • One tip given - on same calendar - write down the profit made at the jewelry bar and also any override earned on the 10th. Planting a seed for those booking on next available dates looking at that calendar.
  • On the Go Jewelry Bar Kit (make-up cases work well). Be prepared to have items with you and meet customer/hostess in public place to spread the buzz.
  • Post a photo or display past Hostess Rewards earned
  • If they are 'thinking' about hosting a bar, make sure they know that if they book it today the hostess can earn that 1/2 price item. Remember booking has to be entered before party is closed for hostess to earn it.
