This afternoon I caught up with a dear friend whom I think I first met at the first ever European Convention that was held in Frankfurt, November 2009. I am lucky to have been able to attend all three European Conventions and am already looking forward to the 4th one this November.
Dawn from Aberdeenshire remembers me sitting the bar and showing her and a few other demos how to make folded Christmas trees with Designer Series Paper.
Although we don’t get to catch up very often, Dawn has been a bit of a distant ‘mentor’ to me down here in Norfolk, giving me support along my Stampin’ Up! journey. Being part of Stampin’ Up! team of Independent Demonstrators, is extremely rewarding and Demonstrators have the opportunity to earn many rewards along their individual journeys.
The highlight of the year, is an all expenses paid Grand Holiday. I would love to be part of one of these Stampin’ Up! trips however I recognise that working full time, I feel it will be a tall order for me to achieve this. I am not one to be defeated but today Dawn has encouraged me that I am heading towards the half way mark already …. I have another 5-months to achieve this huge goal !!!
Having worked extremely hard during the first few months of this year, particularly during Sale-A-Bration, I earned some wonderful rewards for both sales and recruiting being able to choose many stamp sets free of charge from the new Mini. I set myself some goals / personal targets for the first three months of the year. The first is one I have been chasing for some time to get over the £10,000 in annual personal sales. The 2nd and 3rd were to sign up 3 recruits and to achieve my Silver 2 promotion. I am pleased to say I achieved all of these !!
Please pop back on Tuesday as there is some exciting new regarding the new starter kit which I’m sure many of you will love.
