You are a Business, Man

You totally know that I am a word girl. I have always loved to read and in my teenage years (so very very very long ago) I would keep notebooks of quotations, phrases, bits of stories that resonated with me. Now, thank goodness, I can just save them to Pinterest #forthewin Recently I cam across a quotation from Jay Z that I absolutely love and cannot get out of my mind For those of you who have spend a little time around here you know that I have a few solid go tos when it comes to running your Stampin’Up! business: Do less, Do better WIN: What’s Important Now You Already Know Find your tribe, love them hard You are not Stampin’Up!, You are your own unique take on Stampin’Up!   and the one that a lot of folks struggle with, “YOU are your brand”……let’s be honest though, I know you don’t like hearing ” buy less” either 😉   Don’t get hung up on the use of the word “man”, it just works in this instance and still applies to all of us. You are not a businessman You are a business, man.   YOU ARE IT YOU are your business. Your people follow you because of who YOU are and what YOU provide. It is not about Stampin’Up! And once you embrace the reality, the power, the...

The 4 Letter Word that Dooms your Business

I am sure you have your list of “4 letter words” that make you uncomfortable. ME? not so much, except for one…..and it is the ONE that can really hurt your business. B.U.S.Y. yep, busy!   We all know people who wear that “badge of busy” with a lot of pride. Somewhere we got super confused and started equating busy with succesful. If you have a lot to do that must mean you are working hard, getting stuff done, you are vital and important.   Truth? the LAST thing I want to be is busy. Busy does not mean productive, focused, joy filled, purpose-full, or happy Busy means stressed: too much to do and not enough time to do it   For me? I LOVE to work, but I refuse to be busy. And I am going to bet that I am not alone in that icky feeling about “BUSY”   When you are talking with your customers do you say, “oh my gosh, I’m just so busy!!”? And then wonder why they don’t want to sign up as a demonstrator?   When you talk with your team do you say, “oh my gosh, I’m so busy!!”? And then wonder why they don’t want to hold classes and events? Instead of having BUSY DAYS, try having FULL DAYS   “I had the most full morning, it was so fun!”...

Masters Retreat: Hilton Head Fall 2017

Masters Retreat September 28-October 1, 2017 Hilton Head Island, SC So what exactly is Master’s Retreat? This event is designed specifically for business builders of any level who are really looking to fine tune their businesses and take them to the next level. Your direct sales business was born out of your love for your company’s products. This means that your passion initially was founded in sharing the benefits of your products. Today your business involves creating new customers, holding events, hostess coaching, recruiting new downline and providing them with training. Along with growing your presence in social media. Very few people come into direct sales with a solid business background to help them navigate all of these challenges. My mission is to partner your passion for your products with our passion for the business side of direct sales, including social media. We also know that as a business owner your days can be long, overwhelming and frustrating. We want you to know you are not in this alone. We have your back. We know your frustrations and we want to help you move from today’s struggles to tomorrow’s joys as you define your Big Dream and build a business that is truly soul satisfying AND profitable. The core of this weekend is a 8 mini course training that will provide you with the know-how and motivation to build a...
