Roll out the Aqua Carpet
A Welcoming Hoot Hoot to You!!
Welcome to Origami Owl!
I would like to congratulate you in making the decision to join Origami Owl as an Independent Designer! I know your wait has been long, but trust that quote "Good things come to those who wait...." You are in for the ride of your life!!!
WELCOME TO TEAM BELIEVE! We know that when we truly believe we can achieve! I would like to extend out my "helping hand" to you while you figure out what to do with your new business!
Why did you decide to become a Designer with Origami Owl? Always keep that reason in your mind and in your heart and you will achieve success.
We all know that Origami Owl was started by the hopes and dreams of a 14 year old girl named Bella Weems. She really wanted a car, and with the support and help from her mom, her dreams came true. Check out these links to give you more information about how Origami Owl started:
Origami Owl's Mission Statement:
Our Family Tree:
First of all, lets talk about our "Family Tree" so you know who people are talking about when names are being thrown out there!
Origami Owl has 7 Designers who are the "Direct to Corporate Designers"
Jane Alger, Tami and Madi Butcher, Kimberlie Harrell, Heidi Russell, Karla Savage, Maggie Stephens, and Kristine Stevens.
We all fall under one of these lovely ladies, who I call the "Supreme Mother Owls"
We, my dear Owlet, are part of Tami Butcher's nest. Tami and Madi are an amazing Mother Daugher Team! Tami will send out an email to you once a month, and also does a monthly team conference call.
Here is what your lineage may look like: (using my team and me as an example)
1.Tami Butcher- Senior Director "Team Believe"
2. Robyn Torres- Director "Team FAB- Faith & Always Believe"
3. Krista Saysanam- Executive Team Leader "Team True Believers"
4. You or your Mentor? WOW!!
As you can see, you are not down a line of so many leaders that you will get lost in the mix or will get so confused by names and scratch your pretty head wondering, "Who is she?" It is pretty special to know that only a few leaders are above you ;) Can you say ground floor opportunity?

Where do you see yourself in 3 months? 6 months? On your 1 year Owlversary?
The Juicy Info: Now Let's Really Get Started!!
Getting the 411 on what to do, product information, and all the files/resources you can get your hands on because you want to read, take in the knowledge, and run with it.
First of all, get out that great book that came with your starter kit! It is the spiral bound book called START LIVING YOUR DREAMS. Read it!! It is a wonderful training guide for you, full of information, and it also includes checklists and how to do your first Jewelry Bar. Seriously, it is an awesome book.
Next, study this file. It is called Points of Difference. It is important that you have product knowledge of what you are selling!
If you are on Facebook, please ask your Mentor to add you to your team page. Team pages are wonderful resources for support and there is a group of fabulous women who are ready to welcome you and help you out! We really love to help each other out. Please do not post anything negative on the page. Any and all frustrations or complaints, venting about stuff, will be removed from the page. No ARGH's, GRR's or UGHH's! This page is a grunt free zone! Yes, this page is for support, but negativity and venting just fosters the wrong vibe for this page and we want to truly keep our group page a happy place where asking questions, celebrations, sharing ideas, and encouragment are the main topics and posts. If you have issues or concerns, shoot your Mentor a message and she will be more than glad to help you work through it! Also, the Team page does NOT substitute as your Mentor! Please be sure to communicate with her when you have questions. That is why she is your Mentor.
***Pay particular attention to Origami Owl's Policies & Procedures***
I recommend you print this, three hole punch the papers and put this in a binder for reference.
Here is a great blog put together by a fellow Team Believer. It has lots of great info of what to do when you first start with Origami Owl http://helloowls.com/ (Thanks Sunny Brixey for creating such a great resource!)
o2loop.com You may have signed up for it already when you enrolled. If not, consider doing it. Only fill out what is required to fill out, or the website will time you out, you will have to start all over and that is not fun. When you are accepted into O2loop, check out the resources section and read through some of the threads on there, like O2University and the FAQ's. Lots of great stuff!
Your backoffice or what is also called Revolution. Try to log in everyday and check to see if anything new has been posted. Your Mentor do not know anything before you do. Any news we receive is from there. The Resources tab in your backoffice has so many great files, photographs, and power points, and videos.
Webinars: These are great! Lots of helpful information. They are posted on Monday nights 9pm EST. Check your backoffice on Mondays to get the information of what the topic they are discussing is. It is not a requirement to listen in on these each week, but they are great to do, especially when you are first starting,to help give you ideas to help jumpstart your business. But I recommend to always tune into them, because any new company information will be done during webinars as well.
Do you use Dropbox? It is an online file storage website. It is free to sign up for it. I recommend you do this, then go to the Resources Tab in your backoffice and download all the files you feel will be useful to you and your business and then upload them onto your Dropbox. www.dropbox.com
Do you have a smart phone? Download the app for Dropbox. Now, at your fingertips, you have all the Origami Owl files that you have uploaded. You can pull them up on your phone easily for quick reference. And you can easily share the file, just by texting the link to whoever needs it. It rocks!
Take a moment to add Origami Owl's contact info to your cell phone contacts.
410 S.Benson Lane, Suite 1
And last but not least, make sure your Mentor's phone number is saved into your cell phone's contacts too!
