Senior Team Leader's Corner

Happy July Hooters,

So much has gone on in the last month. Isn't it so hard to believe that we have really only been going strong at this for 7 months? Can you just imagine where we will be next year at this time. It really gets me excited.

I know this newsletter is late and I so apologize. I always try to find the best way to create our newsletters. I have tried many different ways over the last 12 years, so let's see if this way works. Normally I will have the newsletter out by the 11th of the month.

Convention was last week and all I can say is WOW! It was an amazing experience. I know everyone that went is still raving about it. I hope you all can make it next year and really experience first hand what this company is all about. I believe almost all of us have registered for next year already.

We have some true ROCK STARS on this team. You guys are blowing numbers away. As we sat in convention and watched what some of the top leaders are doing, I know many of us were sitting there thinking, "WOW the Sparkling Hooters can totally do that." We currently have a 2 Team Leaders and a ton of Leading Designers who are just waiting for these waves to keep rolling in and get their teams moving. You guys made it through the Mother's Day storm. It wasn't easy but we did it. I am so proud for each and every one of you who are planted your feet in the ground and know the opportunity we have in our hands. I too was frustrated and I am happy that we are moving forward in a positive direction.

Next we must get ready for all the new things coming our way. We have system changes (let's get ready now and realize that there will be glitches), new products, new catalogs and who could forget our first ever INCENTIVE TRIP!!! Who is going to Cabo in February???

I really love what every one has to offer on this team. We have some amazing people who are working towards dreams being achieved for their families. If you watch where we were in January to where we are now....WOW! We have made leaps and bounds!!! Here is to a great August and some amazing things happening this fall. Are you ready? Are you ready to Sparkle bright and have everyone yelling, "WHO ARE THESE SPARKLING HOOTERS?" Oh its going to happen.

You are amazing!! Dream BIG!!

Hugs and Love,

One of the best pieces of advice I can give anyone just getting started in direct sales or in their new role as a leader is to Make It Your Own! If you try to run your business using your upline’s style, preferences or actions it may not be the right way for you to work your business.

Let me elaborate more on that. It’s also good advice that if you want to be successful, find out what those who have gone before you are doing, and do that. I agree with that, why invent the wheel? But, to get back to the previous paragraph of making it your own, don’t copy someone exactly. Think of it like plagiarism. You don’t want to copy someone verbatim. It’s okay to take an existing idea and tweak it to your personality. There really are no original ideas anymore, they’re just existing ones with individual spins put on it. Put your spin on things. You are amazing. No other team sparkles like us!!!

If your trainer, mentor, coach says, “Here is how you do it. You do A B C, and then you say X Y Z” take it with a grain of salt. Take what you like, and discard the rest. Use your up line’s information, and the list as a GUIDE. Consider it a menu from which you can select a variety of items, or you can take something listed and reinvent it to suit you.

See you at the top!
