Well well! Look at that. I’m back two days in a row!

I’m tired and hungry but super happy! I had an Arbonne party last night that went really well. One girl signed up as a consultant and two girls bought $840.00 worth of products! There was a bit of confusion about the ordering buy we got it straightened out and it’s all good now.

My focus now is to book more parties. My goal is to book three parties a week in February. Hopefully that will get me to the next level in the company and I’ll be just that much closer to working full time with Arbonne and driving my Mercedes!

People keep asking if getting the Mercedes from Arbonne is actually a realistic goal. Um, yes!! I live in a smaller town (10-13,000 pop) but there’s three girls in my area already driving their Mercedes and working full time at the Arbonne business. It’s do able IF you’re willing to work to get there.

You always have to view it as doing work now for play later. It’s not hard work, it’s a matter of keeping those wheels turning. And it’s FUN! I get three nights a week with great girls, visiting, trying out cosmetics and eating great munchies! It just doesn’t get better than that!

I work full time too but weirdly enough, I haven’t viewed my Arbonne nights as being overwhelming or “work”…EVER! That says alot.

Warm it Up

With love baby!

Just a clip I love (: Brandy has been one of my favorite artists since I was young. Great memories! Here’s one of her new songs.

Well, I’m back! Where was I? On a great long week in Calgary and Edmonton, visiting my sister, friends, shopping, eating Sushi and shopping my butt off. It was a great week off, sleep-in’s (kinda, I’m getting old and cant’ sleep past 9 now…) and a refreshing bit away from work.

I got so many new clothes and (YAY!!!) splurged on a bedroom set from IKEA. We’ve been married 3 years and haven’t ever done-up our room. So we finally bought a great bed frame, bed side tables, lamps, curtains, a new quilt and sheet set (Linen and Things is going out of business so I got a great deal). I also got a gift certificate for Pier One from my sister so I bought some colorful decorations for the bedside tables. We do need to paint the room yet, pale pink and green, but the cream colored bed and tables go perfectly. The curtains are a beautiful chocolate linen fabric, and the lamps are deep brown with cream shades. We stayed up until midnight setting everything up and it looks breathtaking. I love it. I couldnt’ stop looking around and grinning!

I also had an Arbonne Party while I was in Calgary. My sister booked it and it went really well! Four girls showed up, which is a great number, and I made the whole presentation without stumbling…although it’s ok if you do stumble. My sis and one of her friends bought a couple items so that was good. Since the warehouse that I order from is in Calgary, my sister received her order in four days. Crazy!

I’m in qualifications for District Manager (the second level in Arbonne) so I’m hoping to make quite a few sales this month and make it fully to that level. My Peel Party is tomorrow where I hope to make more sales and book more parties. Yay, cant’ wait!! We’re going to try out the Facial Peel and all of the RE9 set, and of course just visit and eat some Christmas munchies! Yum yum!

I’m on a roll! How many posts is this in a row? Yay for me!

SO last night was my first Arbonne Party by myself. My leader, Jannah, actually called before the event and said she wasn’t able to find a babysitter. I wasn’t too worried, by that time I had started to get confidant in the presentation process. I said I would be fine and Jannah stayed home with her little guy while I went to the party.

There were only three guests that showed up, and they were all my close friends, so the presentation wasn’t bad at all. Actually, I had a feeling since they were my friends, it might have been worse to try to present in front of the. With strangers, you can act. Friends know who you are what what you normally act like…But it was great! I told them at the beginning that I would be pretending they didn’t know me and I would be going ahead with the whole presentation. And I did. And it worked! I had my que-cards to follow and of course the catalog which is really like a magazine (full of info!).

And it was EASY!!

I read through my notes, added my own thoughts here and there and it went SO smoothly and I had a blast! The girls were all so attentive, although a couple of them had just been to Arbonne parties with other friends. And I was able to answer all of their questions, which was a big worry for me.

Phewf!

Today I met with a girl that is going to be doing the Arbonne Business and we went over her goals and the direction she wants to take with Arbonne. It was good!

Then Saturday I have another party which is going to be awesome. I’m really excited for it!

Self employment, anyone? An average of $140.00 a night, anyone?? Just ask me how!

Creative Lapse

This week has been really lacking in creativity for me…well, when it comes to sewing and my normal crafts, I guess I’ve been creative in a different way.

Last nights event with Karla Carol-Ann, the makeup artist and fashion stylist from NYC was really interesting. I spent all day at the hotel getting the conference room ready, decorating and making sure the set up of the room was what we needed (the hotel didn’t take notes when I was describing what I wanted before and had everything completely wrong when I got there).

The biggest thing I learned from Karla was to wash my makeup brushes…did you know to do this?? I had no idea! But it really makes sense since you’re using them constantly and they collect bacteria. Also, I discovered that I need to get new brushes for my eye makeup. Anything to make the morning ritual go faster!

                           

But that’s enough about that…

Creativity is a MUST for tonight! I’ll be working on accomplishing my weekly goals as well as sewing a new Kiki Bag, special ordered from a co-worker. I’m excited to work on this bag as it’s the same style as my Hobo Bag. It’s just a fun and cute style.

I’m also still waiting for my grommet press that I ordered on Ebay, I hope it comes before the weekend so I can have a project to work on during my off days.
