I Joined the Origami Owl® Wait List, What's Next?

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a Blessed Easter!!  We were a bit under the weather over here but still managed to make it to church and visit with some family.  My babies looked adorable in their Easter outfits, it's a shame I don't get the opportunity to dress them up like this more often!!!

Last time we chatted, we talked about how I decided to join the Origami Owl® Wait List. Today we are going to talk about next steps and what you should do after joining the  Origami Owl® Wait List.  Right now I currently have 8 wonderful Designer's In Waiting and the question I hear most often is "What's next?"  I know my DIW's are extremely excited to hit the ground running and can't wait to start selling these amazing lockets.  They are feeling a little impatient too and I can't blame them!    It's hard not to get excited once you make the decision to join this amazing company, you can't help but want to get out there right away.  Being on the  Origami Owl® waiting list is hard yet necessary. Time will go by quickly though and before you know it, you will go from Designer in Waiting to Independent Designer and you want to be prepared!

Here are a few things that I recommend doing to use this "Designer In Waiting" time to it's fullest potential. First of all, do you have a mentor yet? A mentor is someone that will take you under their Owl wing to train you, answer questions and be your best friend through out your career. If you don't have a mentor yet, I would be both honored and humbled to be yours! I am available to you 24/7 via email, text, phone or Facebook. Whatever the easiest way is for you to communicate, I am here for you to answer any question you may have. My mentor id is 17036 and I would love to be yours! Once you have found a mentor, now is the the time to start working with her to plan your launch party. She will also introduce you to your fellow teammates, these will be the ladies that you share ideas with and become your closest friends through out this process. A few other things I recommend you do during this Designer In Waiting time are:

  • Start by wearing an Origami Owl® Locket everywhere you go.  Don't own a locket yet?  Contact your mentor, she can order one for you with her discount until you receive your kit.  Even though you are not an official Origami Owl® Independent Designer yet, you can still share your locket with everyone you meet and show it off to your family, friends and co-workers.
  • Tell everybody you know that you joined the Origami Owl® Wait List.  Let them know all of the fun opportunities coming their way and start booking those parties now!  It is important to stay on top of your wait list number so you can conservatively book those party dates.  You don't want to book your parties too soon just in case you do not receive your official invitation to join Origami Owl® in time.
  • Attend an Origami Owl® party!  If your mentor isn't local, try to find an Independent Origami Owl® Designer and ask her if she would mind you tagging along at her next party.  We are all fairly new and I am sure she wouldn't mind showing you what an actual Origami Owl Jewelry Bar is all about.  Just a reminder though that you are not allowed to hold a party of your own until you become an actual Origami Owl® Independent Designer. 
  • Join your Origami Owl® mentor's and upline's closed Facebook groups.   Your mentor should have her own closed Facebook group and also be a member of several other Origami Owl® related closed groups.  Let your mentor know that you would be interested in joining one of these groups.   Facebook is an essential training and networking tool today in the direct sales industry today.  It's the perfect tool for training opportunities, getting to know your other teammates and sharing ideas with one another.
  • Start designing and planning your own Jewelry Bar display.  There are so many great retail locations to purchase white picture frames, jewelry busts, jewelry display items and other white serving pieces to show off Origami Owl®'s lockets, chains, dangles and charms.  Go ahead and get creative!    
  • Research a credit card reader for your smart phone.  There will be opportunities where you will sell some of your inventory.  You want to be prepared by being able to accept credit card payments right on the spot.  Credit Card readers are very conveient and handy and only charge a small percentage per swipe.  I currently use SquareUp which is so easy to use.  SquareUp sends you the credit card reader for free along with a free app to use.  You are only charged a small percentage per swipe.  There are no monthly fees! There are a few Credit Card reader options you can choose from such as PayAnywhere and Paypal.  Take the time to research one for yourself.  Chose the one that is right for you!
