It is BACK!!!! Our #1 Virtual Training Course!

Do you love technology? Are you an organized, detail focused person? Do you love helping other people? Would you like to earn an income while working from home? One of the topics I am bombarded with is “how do I find a great virtual assistant?” Quickly followed by “what exactly can they do for me?” There is a huge gap and a strong need for business demonstrators to receive the technical support necessary to build a thriving online business. From Pinterest to Blogging to Newsletters to Team Reports it is simply daunting to try and do it all yourself. A Virtual Assistant can work from 5-20 hours a week, for one or more people and help fill in or simply take over the behind the scenes technology of an online stampin’ business. The Virtual Assistant Training will give you all the tools you need to effectively and powerfully run a social media plan for any demonstrator, and even yourself.

What my new car has to do with your Stampin’Up! business

I have been talking about trading my car in for a couple years. While being great on mileage, it was totally impractical for my daily life. First, I haul two of the cutest pups in the world to the dog park each day. And having them just hanging out in the back seat is not safe. Secondly, I spend some good time and money at the garden center all year long and hauling plants and pumpkins and bird baths in a little car just never worked. Third, I live in Wisconsin. That means we have a lot of snow days and I need a reliable vehicle so I’m not housebound for a whole winter. So I finally went car shopping I went looking for a compact SUV and had narrowed my search to one of 3 cars: Honda CRV, Jeep Pilot, and Lexus RX350. All used, all a great price   I drove the Lexus first. #holycow All the bells and whistles. It FELT so good. Cozy and a little indulgent. Then I drove the Honda and the Jeep. Both great cars…..but that Lexus… It was a little bit more expensive and that made me second guess my choice. In the end, I knew it was worth spending just a little bit more to get a car I knew I would LOVE. So what does this have to do...

Facebook Pages vs Facebook Groups

One of the questions I get from folks a lot is whether they should set up a Facebook Page or Facebook group for their Stampin’Up! business. Here is a super quick skinny of what each of these offers: Facebook Page FB pages can be seen by anyone, liked by anyone and followed by anyone. When Suzy Stamper likes, comments or engages with your page her friends see it. Even if someone has liked your page it won’t necessarily show up in their newsfeed unless they have interacted with your page recently. The “Facebook Algorithm” makes it pretty tough for more that 10% of your followers to see your posts. Facebook Pages have analytics which can let you know what works, what type of people engage with your page, what time of day is best to post. You can advertise your Facebook Page to reach more people.   Facebook Group A FB group is a community. While you can have an open, closed, or secret group, people need to ask to join and be approved. You can monitor who posts and have varying levels of control over other people commenting and inviting friends to join. What goes on in the group stays in the group. In a closed or secret group, no one sees the interactions, comments, etc that their friends make. Facebook Groups are highly likely to show up...

Is Stampin’Up! your side hustle?

For many of you, Stampin’Up! is what I like to call a “side hustle”. I am a big fan of the side hustle. I think it is so critical to have something just for yourself. Something you are passionate about, something that brings you joy, something that you build just for YOU. I have just started a little side hustle of my own and I wnated to share it with you, because I think of us as friends I have zero intention fo giving up my Stampin’up! business of 18 years, but I have wanted to partner with a skin care company for so long and I finally found one that is the absolute perfect for me. EVER is a skin care line that is relatively new to the market. They are owned by the same company that owns Stella and Dot #allthelove Here is what made this the absolute right fit for me: Amazing Product Line I consider my self quite the connoisseur of skin care, having tried just about every thing on the market, including other direct sales companies. The EVER product line is hands down the most effective, safest, and affordable of anything I have used. That is the trifecta of skin care in my book! Amazing Home Office As a direct seller for nearly 18 years I know the importance of a strong home office....
