TEAM JOY - Journey Outside Yourself

Count It All Joy - James 1:2

Welcome New Designers

I wanted to give a shout out to all new team members who have joined Origami Owl over the past 3 weeks. We released another 2000 wait list spots last Monday. SUPER excited and grateful to each of you for your patience and perseverance through the waiting period. I hope you will be able to say that it was well worth it! Your first point of contact for questions should be the back office. Please spend time familiarizing yourself with all that is back there. The resources section contains a ton of information and marketing materials to help you get your business off the ground. Please contact your mentor with any questions. She is there to support you, along with your entire team and the Nest. If your mentor doesn't know the answer, she will go to her mentor until an answer is found. I am always here for you as well. :)


Also remember that the Designer Care department is available Mon-Friday, 7am-7pm PST. 888-491-0331.


August Hostess Flyer Available

The August hostess flyer is available in the back office with a brand new hostess exclusive jewelry set featuring a large chocolate locket with crystals and a medium rosé gold locket. What a beautiful combination for the fall. Your August hostesses can earn this set for FREE with a party totaling $1200 or more. There have been some questions about whether or not the hostess will receive the July or August hostess exclusive if the party is started in July but closed in August. An official will be coming from the Nest on this issue. So hang tight!


Below is a link to the flyer. Save it to your desktop and email it out to all your hostess prospects. Better yet, pick up the phone and call.

Important Month End Reminder

Today is July 29th which means we are 3 days away from the end of the month. Yikes! Month end is always important for those of you in a leadership position (many, many of you). Please make sure that you know where you and your team stands in terms of the minimums necessary to promote or maintain your current position. Please note that month end orders need to be submitted by midnight EST on the last day of the month. Any orders placed after midnight EST will count towards the next month's volume.


Please refer to the career plan (link below) for more details. If you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to ask your mentor. Many designers have lost out on commissions simply because they didn't understand the requirements. Don't let that happen to you!

Wear a baseball hat today!

Sorry for the late notice but we are asking that your wear a baseball hat today in honor of Courtney. Courtney is the son of one of our corporate office employees. He is 24 years old and has a terminal illness. Hospice has been called in. In honor of Courtney and his love of baseball hats, we are asking that your wear a baseball hat today. This will warm the heart of Courtney's mom, Sherry and their entire family through this difficult time. A Facebook page has been set up for you to post pictures of you wearing your hat and the opportunity to send an encouraging word. Please search on Facebook for "Hoot Hoot for Your Home Team to Honor Courtney" to find the page. I can't figure out how to post the link here. :(. Below is the son of one of our designers showing his support for Courtney.

Support for Laura, One of Our Team Members

Lastly, we have a team member who recently had a sweet baby girl. Lucie was born with a severe birth defect called congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The hole in her hernia allowed her intestines, pancreas, and spleen to go into her chest cavity. When Laura and her husband found this out (in utero), they also found out that Laura's teaching contract would not be renewed due to a decrease in enrollment at her school. In addition, because Laura worked for a catholic school, she was unable to apply for unemployment. Laura has not had the opportunity to begin looking for a job because Lucie is still in NICU. She is doing amazingly well and her surgery to repair the hernia was successful. They are facing an astronomical amount of hospital bills. Their insurance covered a lot but they have been in the NICU for 3 weeks, Laura was hospitalized for 3 weeks and Lucie had major surgery. Laura's friends have organized an online fundraiser for them. If you feel lead to contribute, below is the link. Even $5 would help. Thanks so much!

Who Is Ready To Rock 4th Quarter (AND qualify for Cabo San Lucas)???

Believe it or not, 4th quarter is just around the corner. Start filling your calendar for the fall! Our new fall product launch is going to be AMAZING! If you haven't already watched last week's webinar, there is a great discussion about planning your 4th quarter to qualify for the trip to Cabo San Lucas in February. Let's get excited and motivated! EVERYONE has a chance to qualify for this trip. I want you all to understand that is WILL NOT be a trip that only the leaders will qualify for. I broke down the numbers for myself and it is going to be a stretch even for the leaders with large teams. Personal volume is the way to win this trip!!! I took my team volume for the same period last year (July - November 2012) and QUADRUPLED it (a very aggressive number). I divided that number by 250 to determine how many points I would earn with team volume alone and it only equals 9,000 points. I am going to have to get out there and sell, sell, sell in order to qualify for this trip. Leaders WILL NOT earn this trip on their team volume alone. There are designers out there who regularly have $10,000 - $15,000 in PV per MONTH. These are the designers who are going to earn this trip. THIS CAN BE YOU!!! So get going and make a plan to attend our first annual incentive trip!
