Loving the Locket Life!

Origami Owl Living Lockets has come to the forefront of life here in Wisconsin. These days, I am a full time mentor and Executive Team Leader with the company and if I am being totally honest, I am loving every single minute of it.

If you remember, I joined Origami Owl in the early fall of October 2012. I had originally requested a catalog that summer with the intent to build and purchase a locket in memory of Henry, our oldest son who passed away in November 2009. As I started to write up my order, I realized that for only a little more money I could purchase a starter kit and maybe help other bereaved parents tell their stories through these amazing "scrapbooks you can wear." By October of 2012 I was active and booking parties left and right. 

Today I mentor a team of nearly 150 designers from coast to coast and still am very active in the field. I average about 6 Jewelry Bars (i.e. home parties) per month as well as 2-4 events. In November I topped out at 27 Jewelry Bars in one month. It was pure craziness. I didn't know if I was coming or going, but I knew I was enjoying it every step of the way and at the end of the day, and that's what matters most. I was helping people tell their stories, I was helping my family by earning extra income - for the first time in my life earning more in one month than my husband did, and I was having fun doing it. What more could I ask for? 

As I look forward to the rest of 2014, I very clearly see myself promoting to Director by year end. I have that goal set for myself by New Years Eve and am focused on it like a laser. I am also in talks with our local community college to start teaching a not-for-credit class on Network Marketing for other consultants from any company who are interested in learning more about this amazing field and how to make their businesses succeed. I love that I will be able to pay it forward in that way, among others. 

Origami Owl has given me so many things - some tangible and some not. In February of this year I was able to take my mom on a all expense paid trip for two to the Fiesta Americana Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico after earning the company's first incentive trip. We were able to celebrate her 60th birthday in a way that would have never been possible otherwise. She is already looking forward to our annual convention this year where the company will reveal the location of their next trip. Mom isn't going to convention - she just really wants to know what trip I might take her on next year... Love that lady! She makes me smile.

In addition to the trip, I've grown so much personally and professionally. My background in business was an asset going into this endeavor, but the patience and perseverance have been tried and gained each step of the way. It isn't always easy being part of a brand new company. There are stepping stones and stumbling blocks, but each one is a learning experience and I take them for all I can get out of them. Each one boosting me to the next. Each a little easier to work through than the last. Each well worth any effort expended. 

If you have ever given a thought to joining a Network Marketing company and would like to experience the pure joy and positive energy that comes with being a member of the Origami Owl family, let's chat. I would love to welcome you to Team Faith. Drop me an email at sairabee at yahoo dot com or find me on Facebook {HERE} and let me know what questions you have. I would love to see you achieve your dreams just as I am achieving mine. 

God bless!
