RING in the New Year with a VISION

and win a RING from the New Line!!

Happy New Year Stylists,

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed time with family and friends. Now, it is time to get back to "work"! We have a new line ladies and it is FABULOUS so how do you order everything you want? You BOOK, SELL, and SPONSOR!

But, before you do that, I want to encourage all of you to RING in the new year by setting a goal and then creating a Vision Board. All of us have different reasons for why we are Stylists, but we all get paid for what we do (getting paid for what you love is SO rewarding, isn't it?) so what will you use your little blue card for this month, this quarter, or this year?

I'm a firm believer in setting goals and then making a visual representation of those goals. This is how I earned the trip to Cancun, paid off a significant amount of debt, and just earned enough on the little blue card to take our family to Disney World later this year!!

So all you need to do is follow these four simple instructions and my sincere hope is this activity will lead you to achieve your goal and so much more in 2013!!

1. Set a goal you want to achieve with your little blue card

2. Make a Vision Board which represents this goal

3. Post your Vision Board on our Charming Dottie FB page by Jan 13th at Midnight (if you don't want to share w/ the team, email it to me). Don't be shy - Share and Declare ladies - this will help you get to your goal!

4. Do Step 1-3 and you will be entered to win the RING of your choice from the new line.


What is a Vision Board?

A Vision Board can be a statement, a collage of pictures, a tracker, or all of the above. A Vision Board is whatever will MOTIVATE YOU to pick up the phone and book Trunk Shows! Remember, imperfect activity is far better than no activity at all - thank you Danielle Redner for that beautiful quote. So...it doesn't matter what the board looks like as long as you know in your heart of hearts it will motivate you, and you have some visual representation of your goal.

How do I determine what my goal should be?

Your goal should be something you have always wanted, something you have dreamed about, something you will be proud of, something you couldn't do without your little blue card, something you want to pay for yourself, something that will make you feel good!

Spend sometime on this, talk it over with your significant other and/or kids, or your biggest supporter and come up with a SMART goal - specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely, but above all it must make you take action.

We all need many things, but those things might not motivate you - e.g. we need a new driveway, but you will never see one on my vision board because this will not make me pick up the phone!!

How do I make the goal measurable?

You do Trunk Show math! Figure out your average Trunk Show earnings and determine how many shows you need to do to achieve your goal. Does the number scare you? Well, here are a few ideas: 1)increase your Trunk show average and/or 2) SPONSOR - your earnings will greatly increase if you choose to grow a team and you will accomplish your goals faster!

What do I do with my Vision Board once I create it?

Post it everywhere - in your office, on your phone, on the fridge, in your car, in your S&D planner, on your iPad - everywhere and anywhere you will think about your goal!
