At last years convention in Washington, after all the fervor of the new products, the creative classes, the business classes, the camaraderie with my team and all the fun that comes with this event, I had a clear mission: achieve the title of Director by Convention 2011. I wanted the recognition, the onstage fun, the extra goodies and gifts and all the perks of getting there. So I embarked on a mission to recruit and grow an already awesome, talented and dedicated team and make my vision of the Memories by Design presence in the Close to My Heart family a bit more pronounced.
When Close to My Heart announced their wonderful promotion in June that included the best ever Consultant kit offer, I rolled up my sleeves, picked up the phone and started sharing. Sharing the wonderful opportunity that the company offers, the fantastic top shelf scrapbooking products that are so coveted in the crafting industry and the fun and joy that comes with building your own business around what you already love to do. Basically, get paid to scrapbook your family & friends.
So recruit I did and I added 13 new consultants to my team with an additional two team members brought in by my downline. And yes, I made Director. I think I exhaled for the first time in thirty days when my title officially changed on my business welcome screen!! The morning it happened, I was surprised by my upline, Janet Swann with a whole bouquet of balloons at work- one for each new team member.
Just last week, I received a little extra surprise from Corporate for reaching my title and getting me ready for Anaheim. A big box was at my doorstep that I was not expecting :):
So now that the team has started to sprout and Convention is upon us, I have decided to tweet (@sheryllevinson) and blog for all of you that will not be able to be there, to experience with me the new products that will be launched, new announcements that will be shared and the excitement and my experience of being a first time Director at Convention. I would like to share with you my Chronicles from Director's Row. I will be updating the blog daily during Convention days July 12-16. So I hope you join me and hopefully be inspired and plan to be at Convention 2012!!
