Owlette/BRO Force For Good Charm Winner

We received so many incredible submissions and ideas for potential Force For Good® Charms! We revealed the chosen, beautiful Charm at The O2 Experience and recognized Ethan Pierce for designing a “Mended Heart” Charm, which is a reminder to people that they can heal after a tragedy in their life. Ethan was inspired to sketch this Charm because he and his family witnessed the Las Vegas shooting tragedy. See Ethan’s beautiful sketch here.

One-hundred percent of the profits of the “Mended Heart” Force For God Charm goes to Our Military Kids, an organization that supports children (ages 5-12th grade) of deployed National Guard and Reserve service members, as well as those of wounded veterans from all service branches, with grants that provide up to $300 for a chosen sport, art or other activity. Participation in these activities helps military children cope with stress and build self-confidence while their parents are recovering or serving overseas.

2019-2020 Owlette Achievement Program

August 1, 2019 – April 30, 2020

The Owlette Program is committed to living out the pillars of the Origami Owl mission: to be a Force For Good®; to love, inspire and motivate people of all ages to reach their dreams and empower them to make a difference in the lives of others. The four pillars that form the foundation of the Owlette experience are: sales, sponsoring, personal development and being a Force For Good. This new achievement program is kind of like the Girl Scouts program; it starts the moment someone becomes an Owlette, and they will then have the opportunity to earn Charms throughout every year they are in the Owlette Program. We will be adding new Charms to achieve each year. The first Charm they get is their Owlette Charm and the final Charm will be their Graduation Cap. For each pillar of the business and mission that’s achieved during the year, Owlettes will earn an exclusive piece of jewelry to include in a special look.

Please note, these recognition items will be awarded every year on stage at The O2 Experience. Those who are unable to attend will receive the items in the mail following the event.

Here’s a printable flyer you can share with your teams.

Destination Designer Program: Post-Owlette Experience

We are extremely excited to announce our NEW! Destination Designer Program!

This program is for existing Owlettes and BROs who turn 18 and transition into Independent Designers. The program provides personalized support, throughout their first year of being an Independent Designer, to help guide their progression and start them off strong in their new role. The program is designed to help them achieve important milestones faster, and our Senior Field Development Specialist Chelsea Larson will be providing four (4) Zoom Calls (one per quarter) to coach recently graduated Owlettes and BROs during their first year as a Designer. These Zoom Calls will be held in August 2019, November 2019, February 2020 and May 2020. We’ll post the dates, one month prior, on the Designer calendar on your Back Office Dashboard.

11-Year-Old Owlette Earns October Spotlight

11-Year-Old Owlette Earns October Spotlight

En Español

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.”

Here’s a video of Gabby during one of her in-home Jewelry Bars.

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.”

The 2019 O2 Experience: Spotlight on Hoot Camp

The 2019 O2 Experience: Spotlight on Hoot Camp

We’re committed to helping our Owlettes and BROs succeed and that means providing them with their own, specialized training at our biggest event of the year, The O2 Experience!

On Saturday, July 27, Origami Owl Brand Ambassador Yvette Dickson-Torres hosted Hoot Camp to support our youngest entrepreneurs with special guests Origami Owl® Co-Founders Bella Weems-Lambert, Tyson Basha and Shawn Maxwell, who spent some time hanging out with our 11- to 17-year-olds.

These dynamic young people also received peer training from our Youth Council members and learned all about their unique strengths from Gallup Executive Coach Jeremy Pietrocini. The tools they learned at Hoot Camp were designed to set them up for success over the next year and the feedback was tremendous!

Hoot Camp attendees were also the very first to receive the Owlette “Mended Heart” Force For Good® Charm that was designed by their peer, BRO Ethan Piece.

Here’s what some of the Owlettes and BROs had to say about their Hoot Camp experience:

Hadley Golden, 11 years old, Director

“I love being part of the Origami Owl family! It’s like being a part of your favorite summer camp all the time because there is no judgment, people’s feelings about you aren’t based on how much you sell and everyone is genuinely welcoming. Hoot Camp is something I look forward to all year because the connection is instant. You trust that everyone is a Force For Good and welcoming. You get to interact with all of these amazing people from all over the country and feel part of a true family. It’s like getting to see cousins you just haven’t met yet and reuniting with others like you would at summer camp.”

 

 

 

 

Selina Novello, 17 years old, Team Leader

“Hoot Camp was a great way to meet other Owlettes and BROs. My favorite part was the session with Jeremy Pietrocini where I got to learn about my strengths and how to apply them to my business. Having the opportunity to speak on balance and perseverance to everyone at Hoot Camp was an amazing experience. After Convention, we were all empowered to be ‘Limitless.’ All you have to do is set your mind to it!”

 

 

 

 

Wellington Emanuel, 15 years old, Team Manager

“My experience at Hoot Camp was amazing and really fun. I enjoyed meeting all the Founders, and becoming new friends with fellow Owlettes and BROs. My favorite quote from Chrissy during Convention was, ‘I am limitless.’ I believe I can take my O2 business and be a success. I’m looking forward to being a Force For Good and growing my business.”

 

 

 

 

 

Ethan Pierce, 14 years old, Senior Designer

“The whole Convention was fun! I loved that, at Hoot Camp, I was able to meet Bella in an informal setting where we could ask her questions and really interact with her. I also appreciated hearing from the Youth Council. All of this made it more real knowing that other people have been successful in their businesses at our age.”

 

 

 

 

 

Sean Pierce, 13 years old, Senior Designer

“I enjoyed the whole Convention experience! It’s hard to pick a favorite part of Hoot Camp because it was all fun and educational, but I particularly liked hearing from the Youth Council and learning from their experiences. Oh, and I was happy to meet Bella! Hoot Camp really helped me hear from others who have gone through this journey, too. It was fun to meet everyone!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

April Halverson, 17 years old, Senior Team Leader

“My favorite part of Hoot Camp was spending time with Bella and Yvette.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brianna Standen, 17 years old, Executive Team Leader

“Hoot Camp gave me the opportunity to meet other Owlettes and make lifelong friends. It was great to hear their stories about why they joined Origami Owl. I’m blessed to be a part of something so meaningful!”
