Remember also that it takes everyone to make the totals so whether you did one trunk show or ten; sold one necklace or 50, you are an important part of our team. We love our flexible career with Stella....part-time, full-time, some of the time, all of the make it yours!!

We are breaking team records ladies!! Happy dance time and time to look in the mirror and say; hey, that girl's got style and she's going places!!!

Hats off to both of these women!!

From one side of the U.S. to the other, Rene and Wendy both strive each month to not only work their personal businesses with style and grace but both lead large teams with great success! They are both very busy: Rene works a full-time job and still finds time to fit it all in. Wendy, a Mom of three little ones demonstrates excellent time management skills and assertiveness to do what it takes to get the job done.

Both of these women truly "Make it Happen!! When I asked Wendy to give me a few words on how she sold over 11 thousand last month, this is what she had to say: " I just followed training and booked trunk shows at trunk shows and followed up with my customers. I didn't recreate the wheel. I just did what we are trained to do. The tools are in front of you, it is up to you to get out there and book the shows and share the opportunity! It is not about luck, this is work and I promise that if you work your business, it will pay off." Wendy set a goal and a dream for her and her little boy to take a trip to Disneyland and I'm happy to report they have just returned!!

How do you think that Rene sponsors so successfully? Rene is loved by everyone who meets her. She has a kind, sincere and professional way about her. She pays attention to detail, is a great time manager and truly cares about others. Now; that is how I think she sponsors so well!! Rene also does what she was trained to do, follows what Stella and Dot has given us for training. Wendy and Rene also attend all the extra training they can to keep their skills up to date.

Congratulations Wendy and Rene!!!! You are truly an inspiration to all of us!!

Create a Killer Elevator Speech that will bring you new business!

One of the fastest ways to find new customers and partners for your business is to get out of the house and start networking. But to make networking pay off you need to know what to say when the conversation turns to”…. and what do YOU do (for a living)?”

When this question comes up, you have only a small amount of time to communicate who you are and what you do (in order to grab the other person’s attention and generate a positive response).

The Big Mistake

The most common mistake women make when asked “what do you do” is to talk too much about OURSELVES. It’s so easy to launch into a detailed explanation of your company, or share all the interesting facts and science related to your products. (When you have something unique and valuable, it’s hard to not get carried away!)

If you really want to grab people’s attention – in a way that’s going to lead to new sales and business for you – you need to focus your conversations on other people (not yourself); the easiest way to do this is with a well crafted “elevator speech.”

You’ve likely heard the term before; if not, an elevator speech is a short, compelling message you share with a prospect during a brief encounter (such as going up a few floors in an elevator) to communicate what you do in a way that will generate some positive interest – and leads to a next step (exchanging your business cards at the very least, or another chance to connect and have a more detailed discussion).

What Should I Say?

The best way to format a compelling “elevator speech” is to keep it simple, and focus as much as possible on “what’s important to the other person” vs talking about yourself. You want to position “what you do” in a way so that other people can easily “get the value” and recognize how your products or business can help them. Here are a few examples you can use to start crafting your own killer elevator speech:

Sample One:

I help ___________________ (your prospect) ________________ (achieve benefit or result you know is important to them).

Sample Two:

A slightly more complex elevator speech focuses on both the IMMEDIATE benefit and LONG TERM benefit of your product/business. The long term benefit captures the overall feeling or experience that the prospect ultimately wants.

I help ________________ (your prospect) to ________________ (get this result/benefit) so they can ________________ (have this experience or feeling, what they REALLY want).

How many times have you been asked what you do and when you start to talk you can tell you've lost them. If that has happened, they aren't hearing what it would do for them. They have to hear a benefit in the first few seconds.

Don't forget your favorite teacher!!

Till Next Month......

As we transition into Summer, be sure to keep your momentum up with exciting ideas for your hostesses and their Summer shows. Remember, not EVERYONE is busy with graduations, weddings, vacations. Most are still working their regular schedules and going about business as usual. This is also an excellent time to go through your contacts and reach out to them offering them gift ideas for those events!!

Think Summer and those fun patio shows, baubles and bbq where maybe the guys come, too. Especially for a Saturday night show!! Those are just some ideas; I'm sure you can think of many more!!

The main thing to remember is that Summer doesn't mean's means better weather for most of us, more hours of sunlight (which I love because I can see the house numbers) and all those cute Summer wardrobes that need our cute jewelry!!

My best to you for your May business!

I hope you enjoyed the newsletter!
