Say Hello: Join the Origami Owl Family
The Origami Owl Story - Bella's Journey

Congrats!

You're an Origami Owl Designer and an Official Member of Team SWIFT!

You've Taken the Big Step!

And now, here is what will happen next.


  • It’s natural to feel nervous when starting your own business. We are here to help you every step of the way. 3-7 days from now, your Origami Owl Kit will arrive. Some kits may take a little longer in transit, please be patient.


  • You will receive various welcome letters from different members of your upline lineage. The emails hopefully will allow you to see what a great support system you have. Please don’t feel overwhelmed. Use these instructions as you need them and feel free to call your mentor with questions. It’s natural to feel nervous when starting your own business. But no worries, we are here to help you every step of the way.


  • Your Origami Owl Support System includes these leaders:


Kristine Stevens {Senior Director} Shining Jewels

Rochelle Britton {Senior Director} Whootie Whoots

Melissa Ghane {Senior Director} Team Steamrollers

Michelle Levitt {Director} Team Hedwig

Michele Bradley {Director} Team SWIFT


From this point down, there are various branches of our family tree. Your mentor will be able to tell you your lineage from me to you! It's important to utilize your mentor FIRST if you have questions or need advice. You can then follow the chain up, as needed. Give your mentor the opportunity to grow with you by not skipping them.


The very first thing you should focus on is your launch party and getting bookings on your calendar! After you get moving on that, feel free to follow the steps below to get your business up to a running start!


  • Set up your email and voicemail. Yep, the phone is going to ring! Yep, you will be sending out emails about your new business to prospective customers and Hostesses! Better be ready with an AWESOME EMAIL and Cheerful Voicemail Message! When you have a designated email address just for your Origami Owl business, it tells everyone you are OPEN FOR BUSINESS! When someone calls {even if they are NOT Origami Owl related} your NEW TITLE of "Independent Designer with Origami Owl" on your voicemail is going to spark some conversations about your new endeavor, isn't it?! Commit! Remember what we said about INTENTION! When you let everyone know it is your INTENTION to be the LOCKET LADY in town, that is who you will become! Be sure to follow the P&P Guidelines for setting up an email! No proprietary terms like michelelovesorigamiowl@gmail.com or michelesellsO2@gmail.com micheleslivinglockets@gmail.com


  • Open a bank account. Open a separate checking account for your new business. Look for a personal account with minimal fees and an ATM card. Deposit client checks as well as sales and use it to order supplies and pay for business expenses. This makes for MUCH EASIER tracking and accounting at the end of the year when you're trying to do taxes! This is the account where you can deposit customer checks, commissions from corporate, and link your SquareUp, PayAnywhere or other mobile cash register account.


  • Sign up for mobile credit card processing.

    Running credits cards in our back office is simple and FREE. But having a reader for events is a It's a CONVENIENCE, but not a NECESSITY.


    We take cash, credit and checks

    {well, maybe checks...a debit card might be better--just sayin'}


    Start doing research on using a mobile credit processing service. There are many out there. PayAnywhere, Paypal, SquareUp, Intuit...the list goes on and on. The GREAT THING IS, you can run someone's card AT THE EVENT, have it go right into your business account (most take 24 hours to deposit), then turn around and order the product in your back office using YOUR DEBIT CARD linked to that same account. You're never out of pocket on your purchases! All the readers I am aware of are available for FREE when you register your account {they send you the reader}. Remember that you will pay a service fee of about 2.5% - 3% depending on the company, so research well and decide if this is something that is important to your business or not.


    It's a CONVENIENCE, not a NECESSITY.


    The other very cool feature of having one of these processors is that it's AN APP on your smartphone or your ipad {both business write offs}, you can categorize your inventory for faster processing, AND in addition to their O2 receipt you are able to EMAIL a credit card receipt as well!


  • Order Business Cards. Business cards can be purchased through our approved vendor - https://flyersdirect.com/origamiowl/?p=select-template&id=1



  • Play around in the back office. This will keep you connected. Write down any questions that you may have. Contact your mentor or your closest executive team leader or director, if they are new as well, to help with any questions. Our backoffice will be changing soon, but that shouldn't stop you from learning what we have now.


  • Place your first SUPPLY ORDER! You also can place supply orders in your backoffice directly from your ordering site. Just click Orders - Click Business Supply order and that's it. Remember that business supplies ship from a different facility than product so it's always best to order separately.


  • Designate a workspace. It does not need to be grand or elaborate, just somewhere you can have everything you need to communicate and keep details of your business organized.


  • You will also be added or invited to various Facebook Groups. Again, do not get overwhelmed and try to focus on the necessary lessons FIRST! Marketing items, photos and large display ideas can wait.

SOAR TO SUCCESS

Our fast track program, SOAR to SUCCESS, should be your #1 focus in your first 90 days.


  1. Have a Launch Party and book 6 parties in your first 90 days.
  2. Sponsor at least, your First Team member in the first 90 days. Learn together. This can be your Origami Owl buddy. You will forever have memories you will cherish.


You can find some scripts, types of Jewelry Bars and information in the backoffice, O2 Academy for ideas on getting these goals achieved.
