I am currently hosting a giveaway along with Dominique from DommiesBlessed! Dominique is a mom, blogging about breastfeeding, hair styling on her little girls, and homeschooling! If you need help with styling or caring for natural hair on your little ones, check out her Hair page on the blog! It’s full of helpful information!
You can enter our giveaway through Saturday, August 18! To enter, check for the giveaway posts here:
The pictures of her girls are just adorable, too! Our winner will win a $20 credit for Lilla Rose accessories with me!
The suede leather, adjustable hairband pictured above is called Riley. She was given the standard length adjustable strap in black to blend in with their hair. The other product they tried was the Daisy Flexi-Clip, sized Small.
I had an awesome getaway with my hubby for our anniversary! We celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary on the island of St John, US Virgin Islands! We spent a lot of time face down in the water, marveling at God’s creation. (Snorkeling – I got sunburned on the back of my legs only! LOL!) Still in recovery from category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria in 2017, we also saw much devastation.
The hiking trails, beaches, and reefs were definitely changed by these natural disasters, but recovery is coming. If you’d like to learn more about the recovery efforts, and how you can help, please visit USVI Recovery.
I’ll have to do another post on the gorgeous flora and fauna because the underwater pics are on hubby’s camera.
Meanwhile back home, Lilla Rose announced an exciting discount on New Stylist Kits!
With $25 off and about $15 saved on shipping, this is such an awesome value! That Fast Start option comes out to well over 50% commission when you sell those items, too!
Highlights of the Lilla Rose opportunity include :
Fun times playing with hair!
Wholesale access to all the hairthings you and your family could ever need!
Free website with no fees for upkeep!
No monthly or quarterly minimum requirements!
Free weekly training sessions and lots of Home Office support!
A strong community of Lilla Rose sisters (and a few bros)!
Opportunity to add to your family’s income through commissions and bonuses!
We have a neat Remarkable Opportunity group, too. It’s a place where you can gather with friends to learn about the LR business opportunity in a fun, casual, no-pressure way! You will be able to read and watch testimonials from other stylists, as well as get a small taste of the wonderful close-knit community we stylists enjoy! It is truly a powerful insight into Lilla Rose culture!
To keep the group a supportive and safe place for everyone, we do have a few guidelines: Guests must answer the entrance question of who their stylist is, and/or who invited them. (That would be me, Sue Ellen Hale, unless another Stylist invited you first.) Stylists do not try to recruit you in this group, they always refer you back to your own Stylist, and no recruiting for any other companies is allowed. Let me know if you join the group so I can welcome you! Or comment below so I can add you.
So, between the anniversary, the trip, and the enrollment special, wow what a week! Now if I can just get my body to catch up with these time changes…
I work from home. There’s a number of ways you can work this type of business, but for me, I do about 12 vendor shows a year, mostly work my business online, and sometimes do in-home parties. With the ever-changing “algorithm” to deal with, and rural internet service, online work can be a challenge. I’ve done a number of online parties, where I intended to do a live video. Thankfully, I have a pre-recorded video stored on YouTube, I can link to when I’m in a pinch.
Imagine my surprise when my live actually worked last week!
All that to give you an idea of what it means to work from home. So here’s the scene…
I did my live video outside, on the back porch, because my daughters & husband were watching Hello Dolly (rather loudly) in the house. I called one of the clips by the wrong size. Goats were bleating in the background. Sometime, when I turned around to show my hair, I was out of the screen. My son walked in on the video, then wiped his mouth on his arm in the background. At least he wasn’t picking his nose, right? Then a goose started honking loudly. All that happened within a 10 minute video.
Obviously, working from home is not always picture perfect! If you’re waiting for everything to be in order before you start your work from home business, you’re going to be waiting forever!
But if you don’t get started, you’ll never be a business owner! And you’ll never be growing a real business! It’s work and it’s real life. It’s balancing homeschool, customer follow-up, and healthy meals. It’s things not always going as expected. It’s stretching out of your comfort zone, but the freedom to do it fromyour comfort zone, with all the craziness going on around you. It’s earning the title, “work from home mom.” It’s teaching children to be entrepreneurs, to be responsible, and how to put labels on materials straight. It’s having a cheering squad in the back seat when you open an incentive award package at the post office. It’s teaching them that success is within reach, without giving up bedtime prayers.
“Network marketing isn’t perfect; but it is better!” – Eric Worre
Yes, it feels like March arrived a little early, as the end of February has been not just rainy, but windy. And I mean windy.
Have I ever mentioned that I don’t like wind? Well, I don’t. I don’t like it blowing my hair around or in my ears.
While I can’t change the weather, there is something I can do about the wind blowing my hair… put it up!
I was so excited to have earned our January Stylist Incentive from my company; and today, I found it in my mailbox! The girls and I were so excited, in fact, that we did the unboxing right in the car, in the post office parking lot!
I was so excited to see this year’s Pantone Color of the Year! And if you know me, you know why!
I used to tell people that I selected my college because I liked their school colors best. I might go as far as to say that every year’s Color of the Year should be purple… But that might offend someone… Like my middle daughter.
I guess we’ll just leave the powers that be alone and let them pick a new color next year, but deep in my heart the Color of the Year will always be purple. Or Ultra Violet 18-3838.
“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
Yes, indeed, the world would be a better place with more purple in it. It’s “what’s needed in our world today;” more purple, people!
I am also excited that I’ll be bringing more Ultra Violet into my garden this spring! My garden was greatly lacking in purple last year, but thanks to Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, I’ll be remedying that as well! Watch for these beauties in upcoming garden posts this spring and summer:
Join my mailing list to get notified about new products and monthly specials as they become available.
Congratulations on joining a very special group of Hostesses! As your Stylist, my job is to give you the tips to help you have the most successful event possible.
Personally invite no more than 50 friends. In this world of impersonal “friends,” this step goes a looking way! Call, message or text each person individually to invite them to your event. Invite only those that you believe would benefit from our product, ladies that enjoy wearing their hair up, enjoy wearing jewelry & some bling, or are just fun to have at your party! Invite ladies that you know well enough that you would invite them into your home. **Do not ADD them** to the FB event until they have responded positively! For easy text message invites, go here: Easy text messages to invite your guests. One more time, this is a personal invitation, not a group message or add without consent.
Offer outside ordering to those that can’t attend. Communicate with your guests before your event. We hate for anyone to miss out on learning about this amazing product, so help them out! This also helps you get the most out of your hostess rewards. You’ll see the direct catalog link on the event page.
Make a Wish List from your catalog. I bet you’ve already got a jump start on that step! Remember that our online catalog has many more options than our paper catalog. Feel free to take screen shots of your favorite items and post them on your event page so your guests know what you’re shooting for! If you don’t have a paper catalog, but would like one, please let me know ASAP.
Comment on everything I post on the event page. Be excited! Your guests don’t know me; they want to hear from you. After all, you wouldn’t invite them to your home and then ignore them, would you?
You are the celebrity endoresement! Post photos with your Flexi-Clips, if you have them, or post pictures of the ones you wish you had. (See #3 above!)
Tag friends in the posts when appropriate. Comments like, “This would be great for you, @Janet,” or “This one would look gorgeous in your hair, @Rosaline,” will help your guests make their selections.
Ask questions. If you have questions about the products, how to do a hairstyle, or the business opportunity, don’t be afraid to ask! Some of your friends might be wondering the same things.
Thank the guests that join the event, and afterwards, those that place an order. I will do thank you posts and you can comment right on those.
BONUS: I thought this article would look strange with an odd number of tips, so I made this one a “bonus!” This is actually more a reiteration of the most important points – personal contact & interaction. As the Hostess, the success of your event largely depends on your involvement. If you click on the invite button and never talk to anyone, I’m sad to say, you will not have a successful event. Your guests need to hear your excitement and love for the product in your conversations with them, as well as in your comments, and they need to see the product in your hair; otherwise, it’s just another invite that gets no attention.
Update June 2018! New Hostess Reward tiers!
