August TEAM FAB Newsletter
A Bit of Monthly Love from your Director, Robyn Torres
Thank You for Your Patience
I first want to take a moment to thank you all for your support and prayers during these past summer months. These past few months have been a bit tough for me as I was caught up ensuring all team issues during Mother's Day were resolved, dealing with my grandma's illness & death, getting ready for convention and for my daughter to start kinder- which she did this week! With all of these things, I fell behind on my personal business and keeping up with team incentives/communication which I really apologize for and thank you so much for your patience during this difficult time for me. I am gearing up and excited for this next quarter of Holiday season, great sales and amazing opportunity!
The Origami Owl Experience- 2013
With My ETLs
At Convention with my ETL's Michelle Burke and Krista Saysanam
Team Believe! Wow how our teams have grown! Spending time with all of you was priceless :)
Blessed to be Recognized
Recognized as a Director and Received an Award for one of the Inspiring Designers by votes from the surveys sent out- thank you for this my amazing team! Felt overwhelmingly Blessed!
New Product Coming Fall!
I personally have not really mentioned new products too much since Convention and have continued to encourage customers to book parties. As soon as your focus becomes on new release of products- customers want to hold on have Jewelry Bars when these products come out so they want to wait until Sept or Oct, Why wait? We have enough awesome products to get great Holiday gifts, which is what most are getting during this season. And if your customer has a party before the new product is released- Awesome, and then you can encourage your hostess to have another party once new product is released. So my advice to you is not to get fixated on new products and release dates, but rather focus on what we have now and think about getting customers to book 2 parties, by focusing on what we have now and then contacting them again (and past hostesses) to book another party for new products once a release date is confirmed.
I feel like the catalog is also rather new, we've just had it for about 3 and half months- there are still so many great options for gifts and personal purchases
June Incentives were Spirit Awards! Michelle Burke, Krista Saysanam and myself felt that it was a great time to recognize Spirit! These were awarded to team members that showed amazing spirit during the Mother's Day issues and kept the team going and motivated! Congrats and thank you all for your beautiful spirit- it is what makes this team great!
June Dream Court
Congrats to Queen Gina Loretelli PV $4683.01
Dream Court: Carrie Smith, Heather Hockett
I will mail a check of $15 to each of you and Gina won the table cloth in white and glitter (shown below)- I will ship have it shipped to you!
We will put a hold on the Dream Court and instead will be working on the Cobo Incentive that I created for the team, which I added PV to, so it is still awarding those that would have been in the Dream Court. And since prizes are the same value or better than the $15 lunch, I think this is a great incentive! You not only have a chance to win prizes, but will also be qualified for the Cabo company incentive trip!!!
Everyone who qualifies will be emailed 1 ticket/month. You can qualify by either of the following for each month:
- JULY- 4 jewelry bars or $2000 PV
- AUGUST- 8 jewelry bars or $3000 PV
- SEPTEMBER- 8 jewelry bars or $3000 PV
- OCTOBER- 10 jewelry bars or $4000 PV
- NOVEMBER- 10 jewelry bars or $4000 PV
I can see PV/month easily to award ticket, but it takes time for me to look through Jewelry Bars so please email me if you hold the correct # of Jewelry Bars/month and I will check this. They must be submitted through your Party tab as that is the only way I can check this. I will count the closed date as the month to credit the jewelry bar
There will be 5 levels of prizes and prizes will be redeemed and announced in November. If you receive $16,000 in PV or a total of 40 Jewelry Bars within this time you will also be entered into a Grand Prize drawing!
Good Luck everyone! I know you will do amazing and please email me, my contact info is posted at the bottom if you held 4 jewelry bars in July!
Are You Really Going to Give Up on CABO?!
Cabo is Only for Leaders.....
I have heard this way too many times, and so I wanted to make sure you all understood this and how Untrue it is! This trip is actually quite the opposite, it is for those that have the time to sell, sell, sell and many times this is not a leader.
Let's look at some quick #s:
This month you did 4 JB with each JB having a retail value of $600 ( I will use 60% as PV -since approximate retail you receive is 40%)
PV= 4 JB x $360 (60% of $600)= $1,440, PV= $1,440, so points=1,440
So points for Designer= 1,440
Your leader, tends to do half of the jewelry bars you do. Why? Because they are busy with communication to their team, managing team issues, mentoring, meetings. This all takes time to do which results in less sales and jewelry bars. Leaders average a PV of $700 (which is about 2 Jewelry Bars)
PV= 2 JB x $360 (60% of $600)= $720, PV= $720, so points=720
CTV= $100,000 / 250 (1 pnt for every $250 in CTV)= 400, so points= 400
So points for Leader= 720 + 400 = 1,120
In the example above, you can see how the designer will have more points than the leader, even if the leader has a team volume of $100,000. There are over 10 people on my downline that have more points towards Cabo incentive than I do, even though I am a Director. So, don't sell yourself short or think that you can't get there and that leaders will be the ones going. Most leaders will agree that their average sales are much less now because they need to manage their team, so really Cabo is in the hands of those that can sell, sell, sell and that can be you. Regardless if a Director or starting off designer- you have the ability to get there. So read the rules below and info in our folder and Believe that you can get there! I know at times we have trouble believing we can do and win things like this. Don't start doubting yourself- Believe that you can do this! Do your best and even if you don't win the Cabo trip, you will be making some great commission on sales to pay for your own Cabo trip!

TROUBLE ENTERING JEWELRY BARS?
Make sure you have everything entered completely, all rewards and credit card info, then if you continue to receive this message- call designer care and ask them to close the party for you. They can force close the party from their end. If you have any trouble force closing- email myself, Krista or Michelle and we can contact Leadership to have them close the party for you. You also may not be entering in parties correctly, so be sure to look at the resources below if you are having difficulty entering parties
Some tutorials to help you Enter Jewelry Bars:
1. Marty & Heather (part of Team Believe) created this video series to help train Designers of all experience levels to learn how to enter their parties into the Party Tab. PLEASE DO NOT SHARE these videos publicly at this time because they have not been approved by Origami Owl Marketing Dept yet and can only be used by Team Believe Members, which includes us. The videos total 35 mins in full but is worth watching if you need some help in this area
Part 1: http://youtu.be/DenX8-VRtjE
Part 2: http://youtu.be/texwwXF_PD8
Part 3: http://youtu.be/qd6Ec3irrow
2. Erin Hernandez created this newsletter on how to enter a party step-by-step. It is pretty awesome! And a great tool to help you enter your parties
Now for those of you that mentor, please be sure you are making contact or at least try to make contact with those you mentor. This is part of your job, building a team doesn't mean that your job stops when a designer joins your team, your primary job is to help guide those you mentor. Not doing your job as a mentor, is unfair to the designer you are mentoring and it is unfair to your upline as many times the designer will then go to your upline and they will take over. Remember YOU are the one getting commission from this so it is YOUR responsibility to help those you mentor. If you don't think you have the time or commitment to mentor someone interested in joining, then please pass their information up to your mentor/up-line. It is so important that new designer get the support that they need. If you thought you were able to mentor, but feel you no longer want to build a team or are able to help your designer then please contact your mentor/up-line so we can have the designer moved and they can receive the help they need and deserve. Please be the Best Mentor you can be, don't leave those you tried to get on your team helpless- this is a job just like any other job that takes time and commitment to those you mentor so be there for them or have them placed under someone else if you are unable to be there for them.
