How do you keep it all organized?

I struggle with organization.  I've got tons of great books (somewhere) on the topic...  Here's what sorta works for me: 

I have 1 2 inch 3-ring binder that has sheet protectors in it.  In this I keep:  
  • Cruise brochure in the front pocket (inspiration!)The first page is "What are Jamberry Nails?" (in case some one picks it up randomly)
  • Then my kudos - notes from upline, downline, customers or hostesses, print outs of newsletter recognition, etc. (This helps for recruiting, it reinforces what kind of leader I am and if I appreciate recognition, I'm more likely to give it!)

Fundraisers with Jamberry Nails

updated 7-12-16

How does it work? 
Jamberry will donate 10% of the retail sales to the organization. The check must be made to an organization, not an individual.  The donation is made INSTEAD OF host rewards.  

On the party tab in your workstation, open a new part, then mark it as a fundraiser. Enter the organization's information, exactly as the check should be addressed and mailed. Orders can be online or collected in person. When the fundraiser part is closed, Jamberry will cut a check and mail it directly to the organization.  They send out checks once a week on Friday for the fundraisers that closed in the previous week.

Here is what I do to help increase sales:

Networking Successfully in Social Media

Jamberry has a core principle to "give more than you take."  This is a valuable mantra for everyday life too!  It is even more valuable when you are trying to grow your business on social media.

I've been in direct sales for 15 years.  When I first started, there was no Facebook, Myspace or Twitter.  Just knocking on doors and calling people.  I suppose that helped lay a groundwork for being more successful on social media.  I would never knock on someone's door and then as soon as they answered say

Be Intentional! Be Successful!

Without any question, the biggest challenge for us today is getting bookings. The bookings are still out there, we just need to use different verbiage and resources to get them!

Things that are stopping us:
  1. Using the wrong tools to get the bookings.
  2. Using the wrong verbiage.
  3. Making booking contacts when we can squeeze them in.
How to fix it:

Are you feeling like a Super Hero today?

SUBJECT: Are you feeling like a Super Hero today?
We often say that an objection is simply a request for more information. However, what would happen if YOU were the one gathering more information rather than providing a barrage of answers?
Most of us generally get the same objections when discussing the business opportunity.
“I don't have enough time…” or “I'm too busy…”
“I'm not a sales person…”
“I can't talk in front of people…”
“I don't have enough money…”
“I don't know enough people…”
Sound familiar?

Build your Business in December

  1. Call past contacts (not just customers).  Tell them that with the buy 3 get 1 free special and 10% off there has never been a better time to get Jamberry.  That brings the cost of the sheets down to $10.13 each!  If you can, offer free shipping (combine all the orders and have them shipped to you, then mail them out – make your cut off date a little earlier, the free shipping could be an incentive for orders before December 8th) (US dates)
  2. You have a product or service that is perfect for holiday gifts!
