South Hill Designs Glam Fest

It’s Glam Fest week at South Hill Designs! I love this time of year and am excited to share this very cool incentive with you.

South Hill Designs Glam Fest

For those in the US, this gives you an additional $155 in products when you join during Glam Fest! It’s a bit higher for those in Canada, at $170.50.

Today I was doing some reading and training and came across an interesting question, one that I’d like to pose to you today. What IF? What if you had joined Mary Kay or Tupperware in their first year or two? How would your life be different today? Those same opportunities exist for you with the South Hill Designs opportunity. A year from now, you’ll wish you had started today!

Fall is the biggest shopping season for those in direct sales. People are starting to make their holiday gift lists and look around for that special gift. Imagine being able to help them create something unique for the people on their list, something that tells a life story, something with meaning. This is one of my favorite things about what we do!

Imagine, too, being able to do your own Christmas shopping and not going into debt! With your income from your new business, you could have a debt-free holiday yourself!

A few days ago, I wrote about network marketing and what it is and isn’t. I also gave you some idea of the kind of people I’m looking for to join my team. If you are goal oriented, want to really make a difference in the lives of others, and want to create a better income for yourself and your family, YOU are on my list! I would love to help you start and grow your business.

I’m doing calls now with those who are interested in more information about Glam Fest and our amazing opportunity. Interested? Let’s Connect!

South Hill Designs Glam Fest 2014

South Hill Designs Glam Fest

This coming week, we will be celebrating Glam Fest 2014! I am so excited about this one because it gives a sign on bonus to new team members. When you start a new business, it’s nice to see a company recognize new folks with a little bonus!

How does Glam Fest work? It is only during the dates of September 18 at 10 a.m. PST to 22 at 10 a.m. PST! New team members who join during this time will receive a bonus of our bangle bracelet, 5 bangle charms, two studded wraps, and the large gold tree of life screen! You must join during these hours and select the “small social” starter kit.

But it doesn’t stop there! Each new artist will also receive a Golden Ticket! Golden Tickets have value! Details on the Golden Ticket will be out soon. You will be able to use that Golden Ticket to offer an incentive for joining to a new team member. Imagine starting your business AND adding to your team in your first 30 days!

Once you’re started, then you also are participating in our 100 Days to Success program! With this program and the Glam Fest sign on bonus, you could be earning an additional $750 in FREE products in your first 100 days! Our team members are already earning these incentives, and I would love to coach you to earn yours too!

I have a few openings this month to mentor new team members. If you are goal oriented, ambitious, ready to start and grow a new business and want to join at the very best time of the year, let’s connect! The holiday shopping is about to start, which will propel our business fast! I would love to have you join us.

Network Marketing and The Opportunity

Two years ago I really didn’t understand the term “network marketing” at all. If you separated the two words out, I was pretty good at both of those. I know how to network and build a network. I have experience in marketing and even hold an inbound marketing certification. But the two together? I wasn’t really sure how it worked or how it could benefit someone. Fast forward to today and my how things have changed!

I believe there is a lot of hype around network marketing, or direct sales, opportunities. Just browse social media for the topic, and you will find lots of posts telling you that if you just join this team, or that company, well, you can practically be a millionaire overnight! It’s pretty sad actually. There is no attempt to build a relationship, no discussion about what the person wants, and frankly no talk about the work involved! If you watch these posts, it’s also not long until you see multiple posts talking about the feeling that network marketing is a scam. So let’s talk about what it is and what it isn’t.

What It Isn’t

First, it is not a get rick quick scheme. You will not be able to just sign up with a company and start making money on day one.

It’s not an easy way to grow a team that provides you residual income. People will not flock to your opportunity, nor frankly do I think you want them to, but stay tuned for my thoughts on what it IS!

It’s not a scam. There are people making six and seven figure incomes in network marketing. Are there scams out there? Sure. Does that mean all network marketing or direct sales is a scam? Absolutely not!

It’s not “all up to my sponsor.” Your success, and/or your failure, will be because YOU worked your business to make it happen!

It’s not a JOB (just over broke) unless you want it to be. It’s not a job in the traditional sense. You are a business owner, not an employee.

What It Is

It is a business! When you join a network marketing, or direct sales, company, you are starting a business! Yes, that means there is a start up cost. It also means you will need things like business cards, display items, and catalogs. Is there a way to do that on a shoestring budget? Absolutely.

It’s work. Plain and simple. I heard a phrase this week from another leader that I loved. She said, your business is flexible, but not optional. We do have flexible schedules, but not showing up isn’t optional if you really want to succeed.

It’s about relationships. To be truly successful, you have to build relationships with people. This is perhaps the thing I love the most. You will meet new people, and really get to know them. Customers will become friends. Hostesses will become friends. As you build a team, you will build life-long relationships there as well!

It can be life changing. Imagine how your life would be different if you were building relationships with more people, making a difference in the lives of the people you mentor, and finding that you are earning more money than you ever have before. How would that change your life?

Let Me Share About My Team

I have a great team with South Hill Designs. My greatest blessing in this business is being able to mentor others to grow their business. In the past month, our team celebrated 16 promotions, which means people are moving up and making more money every month. I’ve see how it can work first hand.

I am now looking for just 20 to join my team. Let me describe that person for you.

  • You are goal oriented. As the great author, Lewis Carroll, once said “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” You like having goals to aspire to and work to achieve them.
  • You are disciplined. We work from home. I’ve worked from home for about 15 years now, previous in the corporate world and now in direct sales. It requires a certain amount of discipline from people. You have to be wiling to plan your day and be disciplined enough to accomplish what you set out to do for the day. That doesn’t mean there’s no flexibility. It does mean if you have interruptions, you continue the task until it’s done.
  • You are willing to learn. This business requires all of us to continually learn and grow our best practices. You will be willing to educate yourself, attend training that’s offered, and then take that training and apply it in your business. If you happen to be someone who already knows everything about direct sales, my team isn’t for you because we are learning and growing every day together.
  • You enjoy connecting with people. No matter what our product, it’s about the connections we make with people. A 2000 study by UCLA showed that when women spend time with friends, oxytocin is released. It’s proven that women need time with their girlfriends to deal with the stresses of life. As a consultant, you can help them do that through the fun night out parties that you offer for them and their friends.
  • You are ambitious. This means you can see the future and the potential. It means you’re willing to work to get there because you know the reward will be worth it. It means you are striving toward that goal to be able to provide the things you want for your family.
  • Is That You?

    If you are a person who has all five of the above traits, or even three of them, and is interested in earning an extra $500, $1,000, $5,000 or even $10,000 a month, I want to connect! I’m not recruiting everyone for my team, and I know that the people who fit this description are out there! Might it be you? Let’s Connect!

    To The Top of the Mountain!

    It’s September already! Sometimes the time passes so quickly. For those in direct sales, September is the start of the holiday shopping season. People are starting to think about Christmas gifts and how they will celebrate. It’s a great time of the year!

    Celebrating Our Team

    In August, our team had some amazing results! We added 16 new team members! I love seeing the team grow because it means more people are taking control of their lives and are able to do more for their families. We also celebrated 15 promotions in August! Promotions are fun as it means people are moving up in the company, growing with us, and increasing their income. One person on our team even had TWO promotions in August! I am inspired by this motivated team.

    To the Top with South Hill Designs

    Heading To The Top!

    Have you ever thought about what it takes to climb to the top of a mountain? Focus, training, a plan, dedication, and encouragement! Our team is headed to the top of the mountain in the next two months!

    Let’s talk about it. In direct sales, things do not happen by osmosis. You have to have a plan. Our compensation plan clearly outlines what we need to do to move up in the company. That’s the easy part. With our team, we have a goal and plan to make this happen for the team.

    Training. You can’t climb a mountain without some solid training. In addition to our weekly company training, our team offers training on how to climb that mountain. Our 100 Days to Success rewards new consultants along the way for reaching those milestones. Our team’s Rockstars program gives even more training to those who really want to get to the top of that mountain!

    Dedication. This is so important. Starting a direct sales business is just that, a business. Success doesn’t happen without work! If you are committed, follow a plan, and really work your business, you can achieve success. As a leader, my greatest fulfillment comes from helping people succeed. That said, if you’re on our team, you create your success. I can’t do it for you and neither can anyone else! We provide the tools, the training and the support, but in the end, YOU create the success!

    Encouragement: We have this! Our team works together so well. None of the competition that in the end damages many teams, this one is solid. When I think of the word encouragement, geese come to mind. Have you ever seen a flock of geese in action? You will notice that there is no one leader, they switch it up so that the leader doesn’t get tired. More important, they are noisy creatures! The honks are their way of encouraging each other along the way. The open sharing of ideas and support is amazing and frankly not something I ever saw in corporate America.

    Yes, we’re headed to the top! We won’t be stopped! When the naysayers come, and they will, we will boldly proclaim “We’re headed to the top!” When someone suggests maybe we need to climb a smaller mountain, we will say “We’re headed to the top!” And when we arrive, there will be a wonderful celebration!

    Want to Come Along?

    I invite you to come along with us! The view is gorgeous at the top and we would love to share it with you! Maybe you’ve been thinking about new opportunity. Perhaps you’re just tired of being stuck in a rut where you feel unappreciated. With the largest shopping season of the year upon us, there is no better time to join. Curious? What if just 5 minutes could change your life? I invite you to listen to this recording about our opportunity! Then, email me and let’s chat!

    See you at the top!

    Sponsoring with Integrity in Direct Sales

    Integrity in Direct Sales

    In looking around the internet this week, I see so many posts talking about how someone is looking for an opportunity to work from home and they don’t want a “scam” Those posts always make me wonder what their experience has been. I also had some discussion this past week with peers in direct sales around this topic. I wonder if part of the problem for these folks is that they joined a company without really understanding what they were signing up to do. I thought today would be a good time to chat about some of those things.


    I love this word. It’s been one of my “life words” for several years. Every year, I pick three words that will guide my year instead of doing New Year’s resolutions. Integrity has been on that list consistently. I think it’s so important that the things we do, whether it’s business or life in general. It means, simply, doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. It is about living by our values in life.

    Sponsoring with Integrity

    In the direct sales industry, sponsoring should be done with integrity. But what does that really mean? Let’s chat about that today.

    Sometimes I think we get so excited about our product or our company that we just want everyone to join us. In that excitement, we might not share as much information as possible to be sure someone is really informed.

    First, it’s important that a potential team member understand that by joining a direct sales company, they are starting a business. When you join, you become a business owner. As with any business, that means there are things to learn and work to be done. Coming into it expecting that you can make a six-figure income without doing the work just isn’t realistic.

    Explain the compensation plan clearly. If someone has been in direct sales before, they usually understand things like “rank advancement” and “downline” or “dynamic compression.” For someone who is new to direct sales, our lingo is foreign to them. Be sure that you’re using phrases that make things easily understood! Talk about the promotions that someone can get, and be realistic with them! Yes, it’s possible to earn a six-figure income in this business; no, it probably won’t happen in the first 30-60 days.

    Support: If you sponsor, then you need to be prepared to support those new team members. My team has a Rookies to Rockstars program that I offer to new members who really want to grow a business. It equips them with the tools to really get their business up and going and growing. Our company also offers training, both by company experts and in a partnership with the Direct Selling Women’s Association. In addition, our bigger team has basic training for new artists or for those who want to restart their business twice a month. Be sure that you are clear that the person will have support and outline what the support will be.

    Who’s Job is it, Anyway?

    So in all of this “disclosure” in sponsoring, who’s job is it? Is is the sponsor, or is it the job of the person looking into the business to ask all of the right questions? I believe it’s both. I think you should interview your sponsors, and I think sponsors should interview potential team members. Be sure it’s a good fit for everyone. That’s the way to start on the path to success.

    If you are looking for an opportunity in direct sales, I would love to chat with you. We are now open in the US, Canada (including Quebec, which is brand new!), the UK, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. I do believe South Hill Designs has an amazing opportunity for people who want to grow a business and create their own strong economy. I’d love to show you how!

    Know Where You’re Going

    South Hill Designs Training Programs

    I love this quote by Lewis Carroll. It’s a reminder to stay focused on where we’re headed in business. Success in direct sales comes from having a plan and working that plan. This week several of my team members have started our new mentoring program called “Rookies to Rockstars.” They are creating a plan and a road map for their business. I’m so proud of them, and so blessed that they are allowing me to be their coach and work with them. Today I wanted to share a few highlights of things that are important in creating that plan.

    Have a Road Map

    When we travel, if we aren’t clear about where we want to end up, it can be a long, tiring journey. The journey becomes fun and exciting when we know where we are headed and can create a map to get there! Our business is a lot like that. What’s your end result? For some, that means a little extra money to spend every month. Maybe it means being able to take the family on that awesome vacation that you’ve been dreaming about. And for some, it means being one of the six-figure income earners in the company. Whatever that end result it, the road map starts the journey!

    Come From a Place of Service

    My greatest reward in having this opportunity is being able to be of service to others. When someone creates a special piece of jewelry for themselves that expresses some of the stories in their life, my reward is in seeing that look on their face as it comes together. When a team member reaches that next promotion that is going to help them in their family, it’s rewarding beyond belief. Through my business, I am able to help others; and it is that service that drives me. One of my mentors in this business often says “Service is the highest activity to which we can aspire.” That’s so true in this business, and it is perhaps the thing I love the most.

    Make it Fun!

    We’ve all been to those “parties” that were, well, frankly boring. When I started with South Hill Designs, I wanted to be sure I never did one of those parties. I want things to be fun. I love theme parties that my hostesses choose because they are so much fun. It’s about creating an experience. Imagine what you could do with a Taste of Italy party. This month I’m doing a party where there’s an “Ugly Flip Flop Contest.” I can’t wait to see what those guests come up with! Use your imagine and there’s no limit to the fun you can create!

    Celebrate the steps along the way!

    It’s important to celebrate along the way. Don’t wait until you hit that final goal before you recognize all of the small steps along the way that got you there. Learn to recognize the small victories in life. It’s a combination of those small victories that lead you to the end result.

    Always Grateful

    I am a believer in living in a state of gratitude. It matters and focusing on that mind set changes how we view the world. I am grateful for so many things in life. When you stop and really think about all of the things you have to be grateful for, it’s pretty hard to get hung up on anything negative. I also believe that “like attracts like.” What we send out to the universe comes back to us. I have seen that manifested in my own life so much. So, because of that, I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to share this business with others. I am a mentor who loves helping others develop their business. I’m very grateful that I have a business that allows me the flexibility to do other things in my life and also lets me contribute to my family and the things we want to do in life. Life is indeed blessed!

    Come Along with Us!

    Perhaps you’re seeking that just right opportunity for your own life. I invite you to join our team on this amazing journey. Come and see what it’s all about and how it can lead you to that “perfect” life you want to create. I wish for you to be the best rendition of yourself and achieve all of the things you want for yourself and your family.
