New Year, New Start, New You
5 Days of "Stella & Dot Joy" Team Challenge
Since you have now defined your WHY, and/or set up some goals, it's time to get started on turning it into reality!
DAY FOUR CHALLENGE
Challenge: Set the clock for 15-20 minutes and build a new WHO DO YOU KNOW list of prospectives. Email, take a pic of it, etc. the list and send it to me (and if you have another upline leader, copy her on it as well) at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject DAY FOUR CHALLENGE. Then post on the FB thread DONE so I won't miss any entries. Shoot to have at least 20 names on your list- the more shows you want to do a month, the more names you can aim to add! If you've already got a working list, this will be easy! I would still encourage you to take a few moments to add more names, just to challenge and stretch yourself.
Are you a new stylist wondering what the heck a Who Do You Know (WDYK) list is?? It's a simple way of pulling together any and all names of people you want to connect with about being a hostess and/or stylist. What works for me is to take some time with no distractions and really just free flow brainstorm names- I look at my Christmas card list, go through my FB contacts, look through my instagram followers, flip though the school directories of my kids, my neighborhood directory, my church directory, I think about the people I come across on a daily/weekly basis, etc. When I write names down, I don't pre-judge if they will want to have a show- I just write down the names of people who are stylish, friendly, love to get together with friends, etc. I also go back through all my customers from the past 3-6 months and look at my notes to see if there's anyone I might have missed, or not followed up with-- just ANY prospect I can think of. Use the acronym, FRANK as a starting point if you feel stuck- (Friends, Relatives, Acquaintances, Neighbors, Kids Contacts) Also, check the FILES section of our team page for a great document on types of people to brainstorm. This list becomes my working booking list for the next month. I start reaching out and keeping notes on who I connect with, what they say and when I will follow up. Without your WDYK list, you have to plan. This list is imperative whether you want to have 1 show a month or 8.
