Can YOU Do It?

Have you ever tried to fly a kite when there is no wind? No matter how hard you run....the kite won't fly. Guess what....it's like negativity and this business.
I've thought of every reason why things won't happen, why this won't work, why that idea isn't good, blah blah blah! And guess what....I was right! When you're negative....it's hard to win. Just like it's hard to fly a kite without wind. The things I was positive about with this business have grown like wildfire! Isn't it funny how that works?

Negativity also stinks....and believe it or not everyone can smell it.

Who wants to buy stinky jewelry? Who wants to book a show with a stinky stylist? And who wants to join as a stylist if this job stinks?? Think about it....what vibe are you putting out there?

I have a lot of conversations with stylists like this...
Me.."Oh wow...she loves the jewelry and loved hosting...she should look at the stylists opportunity. She seems perfect!"
Stylist.."Oh no....she'd never consider it...she's way to busy and it's just not for her. She'd never want to do this...her kids are involved in everything and she works a part time job."

How do you know if you don't ASK? And why do we always come up with negative reasons why things WON'T work vs. why things WILL work?? What if someone decided for you that this wasn't for you before presenting the opportunity??? THE SHAME! :)

The good news is....

All you have to do to rid yourself of negativity is just wipe the slate clean.

It's literally a switch you turn on or off.

Now is NOT the time to be negative. We are all so blessed with so many gifts!!

Here is an inspiring story about Suzanne Klingemann, promoted to Senior Director in Nov. She was a Star at Hoopla....her business was almost identical to mine. She promoted 2 Stars in September AND 3 in November! WOWEE! I'm so proud of her!! She believed she could and she did.

I believe NOW MORE THAN EVER! If those girls can do it....so can YOU...so can WE!

Here's a booking idea:

Cookie Exchange & Shopping Event ~

Invite a hostess to hold an amazing event her friends will be thanking her for. Each guest brings 2 dozen cookies and their last minute holiday shopping list and a few things they've been wanting to treat themselves to from "Santa". Guests drop off their cookies in the dining room...and head to the kitchen for some wine and shopping. On their way out....they put together a tray of cookies to take home to their family. They have super cute and cheap trays at Target.....you could buy one for each guest and put a Stella & Dot sticker on it for their take-home.
