I Have a Vision

vision

Do you have a vision? Do you want to quit your JOB?  Do you want to pay down debt? Do you want to lose  weight?  Describe your vision with details……

My vision is hubby and I on an all-expense paid cruise surrounded by thousands of other Thirty One leaders. We will be floating in the pink bubble of the Leadership Incentive Trip.  So my “why” is leaving my part time job behind for good and earning Thirty One’s Leadership Incentive trip. I can see it.  I can practically feel the ocean spray on my face.

I have the set goal. They will stretch me.  They will make me push myself out of my comfort zone.  Is you goal slightly out of reach but still attainable with a little bit of work.  If it isn’t, it should be?

Setting the goal is one thing.  The next is changing the mindset to overcome the struggles or challenges along the way.  I am saying “I earned this trip” instead of saying “I am trying to earn this trip”.  The difference is the confidence I have in achieving my vision versus letting insecurities and fear creep in.  By changing my wording just a little bit, I am ready to step out of my comfort zone to get more leads and grow my business.  .

So let me tell you about this AMAZING incentive trip offered by Thirty One.  We have just ended Month #1 of the earning period and I am feeling confident.  This Leadership Incentive Trip (LIT) is available to Director’s and above.  Did you know over 200 of the 1,000 plus consultants who went on last year’s LIT were not in leadership when the promotion period started.  That is AMAZING, right?  WE are headed to the Bahamas!  Notice how I said “WE”.  No, it is not official but I going to DREAM BIG and I want you to join me.

What is an incentive trip?  It is a fabulous, all expense paid vacation offered every single year.  Based on your title with Thirty One, you have personal, team and recruiting goals to achieve the trip.

Here are JulieAnn’s top 7 steps for earning your company incentive trip.

1. Choose The Level You’ll Shoot For – This year each level is a trip for TWO!  So, my goal is a romantic get-away gift for my hubby for our 5th Wedding Anniversary.  I am stretching myself beyond what I think I can do.

2. Decide How Many New Consultants You’ll Sponsor – As you’re earning the trip, you’re growing a thriving business and getting rewarded for it. I always recommend you shoot for more new team members than you actually need to earn your trip. You build in a safety net.  My mantra is “I am a RECRUITING magnet”. Once you know how many people you’ll sponsor, then make absolutely sure those you sponsor get qualified. 

3. Use the Incentive Trip to Earn the Incentive Trip –  Use this as a great incentive to sponsor others who might be interested in joining you on your vacation! I LOVE these suggestions:

• Make the incentive trip a part of your opportunity commercial (and talk about your excitement about where you’re going)
• Put the incentive trip destination as well as a photo of the resort/cruise ship/etc. in your e-mail signature block
• If you’re a leader, make it the “culture” in your organization to earn the incentive trip every year.

4. Track Your Progress – Reward yourself for each small victory as you work toward your trip. I have a vision board in my office to remind me of my goals.  Here’s some small steps you can reward yourself for:

• Made at least 5 phone calls each week to either book or sponsor
• Scheduled at least 1 sponsoring interview each week
• Did at least 2 parties each week
• Sponsor at least 1 new person each month

5. Create a Vivid Visualization – Visualize at least once a day, preferably twice a day (right before you go to sleep at night and as soon as you wake up in the morning).  Close your eyes and really feel the feelings of already being there, even if it’s just for a minute or two a day.

6. Encourage Your Downline Using all of Your Tips and Tools – As a leader, you have to lead by example. Make sure your team knows you intend to earn the trip and you would love to take the vacation right along with your entire team.

What are YOUR best tips for earning YOUR company Leadership trip?  Share them with us so that we can enjoy that trip together.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Bringing Hope and A Smile to a Child

No-Act-of-Kindness-Is-Wasted

June was the start of a NEW ThirtyOne year.  Every year, I reflect on the past year – goals made and accomplished as well as those where I missed the mark.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I want to make a difference in the lives of others.

th

My passion and my purpose will come together this year in a way I never thought possible.    I am on a mission of:

Bringing hope and a smile to children, reminding them they are special and worthy

Yes, the giving campaigns (chemo comfort bags, etc) will continue.  In addition, I will be donating 10% of my sales every month to a local organization that works with children.  Children who are hurting because of no fault of their own ensuring that for even a moment they know that someone cares.

In July, it will be “Lunch Break” whose mission is:

to alleviate hunger and lead those we serve to self-sufficiency and healthier lifestyles.  We serve everyone, with compassion and dignity.

I had the opportunity to meet with their staff last week and was impressed with their programs and their commitment.  This groups humble beginnings in Red Bank has grown in safe haven for those in need.  I saw smiles on the faces of children. I saw women feeling better about themselves.  I saw them making a difference in the lives of families who are struggling.

fight hunger

Last year, we provide 31 children with THERMAL LUNCH TOTES filled with healthy snacks. The totes also contained a note of encouragement for mom as well as some inexpensive lunch ideas.  Let’s be honest, the FREE lunch program doesn’t always have kid friendly foods. No hate mail PLEASE because I know that there are some places that have great meals but let’s be honest, not all of them do.

This year for $20, you can sponsor a thermal tote for a child in need. If you want to help BUT you don’t have $20, donate what you can – $1, $2, $5, or $10. Maybe finances are tight BUT you know a business that may want to help, GREAT! Let me know or forward this information to them. I will supply a list of business sponsors in every thermal tote along with blogging about them – FREE advertising for helping out a great cause. Where else could they get FREE advertising for $20 or $40?

Won’t you help to make a difference today? You can fill out the form below or contact me directly. I will be happy to invoice you. Let’s bring a smile to the face of as many children as we can this school year. The deadline is July 18th!

Have ThirtyOne-derful day!

Fight Hunger – Help A Child

fight hunger-page-0

People start businesses for many different reasons.  Many will say it is to make money or to have a flexible schedule.  While others have a passion that isn’t tied to money.  I know that may sound crazy BUT the truth is my motivation in my business goes far deeper than being able to pay bills.

My passion has always been to make a difference in the lives of others.. my business is no different.

My purpose statement is Bringing a smile to face of a child who is hurting because of no fault of their own ensuring that for even a moment they know that someone cares.

Many of you have been a part of my “giving back” programs.  Chemo comfort bags, USA HERO zipper pouches for our Vets.  We have raised money for Smiles for Trevor and Relay for Life, Suicide Awareness and have helped families with medical expenses.  Each of you are helping me to make a difference in the lives women and children so that they know that someone cares!

You have heard about the “Back to School” campaigns that provide kids with backpacks and school supplies, right? These programs help each child start off the school year on the right foot.

Last year, we provide 31 children with THERMAL LUNCH TOTES filled with some healthy snacks.  Let’s be honest, the FREE lunch program doesn’t always have kid friendly foods. No hate mail PLEASE because I know that there are some places that have great meals but let’s be honest, not all of them do.

We will be doing this AGAIN this year.  For $20, you can sponsor a thermal tote filled with healthy snacks for a child in need. If you want to help BUT you don’t have $20, donate what you can – $1, $2, $5, or $10. Maybe finances are tight BUT you know a business that may want to help, GREAT! Let me know or forward this information to them. I will supply a list of business sponsors in every thermal tote along with blogging about them – FREE advertising for helping out a great cause. Where else could they get FREE advertising for $20 or $40?

Won’t you help to make a difference today?  You can fill out the form below or contact me directly. I will be happy to invoice you. Let’s bring a smile to the face of as many children as we can this school year.  The deadline is July 9th!

Will You Sponsor A Chemo Comfort Bag?

1891151_963398190403165_8615741938684341535_n-1

When I began my journey with Thirty One in 2011, my goal was to help others. Sometimes it was a fundraising project, or a donation at an event or giving to those who were in need. It didn’t matter whether it was a small goal or a HUGE goal, I wanted to help. As a result, I have been able to donate to various causes that are near and dear to my heart.

No, I am not telling you all of this to toot my own horn. I NEVER do any of these projects without the help of my AMAZING customers, hostesses, family and friends. Individuals who believe in the cause, or just want to help. Okay, can you guess where this is leading…. YOU GOT IT!

At the request of some friends concerning the growing need – I am looking for sponsors for Chemo Comfort Bags…

chemo comfort bag sample

The $35 sponsorship will pay for the actual bag and I will use 100% of my commission to fill them with a variety of things like a blanket/scarf, notepad, pen, bottle of water, lotion, warm socks, chap stick and crossword puzzle book. Donations will be distributed to local cancer care centers to bring a smile to the face of those who are fighting this dreadful disease.

chemo bags

Last year, we delivered 31 bags to Ocean Medical Center in Brick. This year by January 20th, my goal is 50. We are halfway to our goal.  I know this is a HUGE jump but I am confident that we are up for the challenge. The bags will arrive in the beginning of February so that I can stuff them and deliver them around Valentine’s Day.

So, who is with me? For $35 you can bring a smile to someone who is fighting the cancer battle. This project is near and dear to my heart. It is a tribute to my Weston angels – Edythe, Elsie and Pop-pop – who all had cancer.

You can sponsor a bag in memory of someone, in honor of someone or just anonymously. Payments can be made via check or through Paypal at hopesgiftcloset@@comcast.net as a friend/family. I can also accept credit card payments directly.

Won’t you help to make a difference today?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
