We’re proud to shine a spotlight on one of our OWL-mazing Owlettes, Gabriella Hope Buckner, this month.
At just 11 years old, Gabby is gaining confidence and learning important business and life skills. From preparing for events and Jewelry Bars® by practicing everything she’s going to say to checking the inventory and making sure they have everything they need for their Jewelry Bars, Gabby plays a big role in her Origami Owl® business.
“I like to take time for myself before a Jewelry Bar to get into the right mindset,” says Gabby. “I go over my speech to make sure it’s short and sweet, and on the way to the Jewelry Bar, I say a little prayer and ask God to take all my worries away.”
Once she’s at the Jewelry Bar, Gabby helps the Hostess set up before it starts.
“I try not to talk to Customers like a salesperson,” shares Gabby. “I really try to connect with people on a deeper level to learn more about their story. I also like to be fully-involved in the Jewelry Bar and answer questions. I also like to make sure the Jewelry Bar is engaging by adding in games, prizes and giveaways, so I plan activities in advance to that everyone has a chance to win jewelry.”
Gabby’s advice for other Owlette teams: “Get to know your audience,” says Gabby. “Remember, the people you’re talking to aren’t going to correct you on your facts about Origami Owl. You know more than they do! Don’t stress over the little things. Just take a risk and don’t hold anything back. You never know how much you could affect someone’s life through Origami Owl.”
Gabby’s favorite thing about the Owlette Program: “I love the fact that I get to work with jewelry and bond with my upline, who happens to be my amazing sister, Bella,” shares Gabby. “I also enjoy learning more about making money and responsibility. Because I’ve had to step out of my comfort zone many times, I’ve started conquering many of my fears.”
