Congratulations, May Young Entrepreneur Incentive Earners

Congratulations, May Young Entrepreneur Incentive Earners

Rewarding our Young Entrepreneurs for their OWL-mazing achievements is just one of the ways we recognize our Owlettes and BROs for all their hard work!

In May, our Young Entrepreneurs were challenged to grow their teams and spread the O2 love with our “Summer Crew with O2” incentive!

The below Young Entrepreneurs shared the benefits of being their own boss, making their own schedule, working whenever is best for them and making some extra money.

They started building their “Summer Crew with O2!” and have earned some incredible prizes by helping their New Designers generate at least 75 PV.

Congratulations to the following Young Entrepreneurs who helped their New Designer generate 75 PV. They’ve both earned beautiful jewelry from the O2 Vault, plus some extra fun jewelry to help their summer business:

Jaymee Gómez (sponsored three New Designers!)

Caidense Bohl (sponsored one New Designer!)

Vittoria Elmer (sponsored one New Designer!)

Lily Gast (sponsored one New Designer!)

Young Entrepreneur Spotlight

Meet Jaymee Gómez

From: Mission, Texas

Age: 14 years old

Joined Origami Owl as an Owlette: Jaymee “officially” joined as an Owlette as soon as she turned 11 years old, but she has been working the business with her mom since she was 7 years old.

Young Entrepreneur Team Partner: Angelica Gómez

Team Name: Team iHeart

Jaymee and her mom, Angelica, sponsored three New Designers who each generated over 75 PV in May!

So, how’d they do it?

“We shared the amazing sponsoring incentive with everyone we knew. We had several Designers, who were no longer active, rejoin,” shared Angelica. “With the beautiful ’Grace’ Necklace and the opportunity to earn the Essentials Kit by generating 100 PV, this was the perfect time for them to rejoin!”

Top 3 Tips for Other Young Entrepreneur Teams

  1. “Wear your jewelry every day, and when people compliment you on it, tell them what it means and why it’s significant to you.
  2. Carry Take Out Menus and business cards with you at all times. Make it a point to give out two Take Out Menus before returning home from running errands.
  3. Share on social media consistently. We share new jewelry, as well as promotions, but also have engaging posts to get our Customers involved. We also enjoy being a Force For Good® and doing things for our community, as well as collaborating with others on projects that give back.”

“Working our business together allows us to spend more time together, gives us financial freedom to do fun things as a family, allows us to help others and gives us confidence in knowing that we are helping other women reach their dreams and fulfill their goals,” said Angelica. “We love Origami Owl.”

Young Entrepreneur Spotlight

Joined Origami Owl as an Owlette: August 2020, but became more involved starting January 2021.

Young Entrepreneur Team Partner: Rosanna Carpita Elmer

Team Name: R & V Storytelling Team

Vittoria and her mom, Rosanna, work their business consistently every single month. In April, they generated 924 PV, and Vittoria is always earning prizes from our monthly Young Entrepreneur incentives.

So, how’d they do it?

“We had a $2,000 Mystery Hostess Jewelry Bar® Fundraiser and donated $500 to the Zoological Society of Milwaukee at the end of February/beginning of March. Then, in April, Vittoria helped me with two Jewelry Bars and two online vendor events.”

How do they stay consistent each month?

“We do a giveaway every month. We use social media, as well. Vittoria is in charge of Instagram and helps me with Facebook. She also does most of our Jewelry Bar and vendor event lives. We also both wear the jewelry everywhere we go. Vittoria is a sophomore in high school and wears a different necklace or Living Locket® with a Bolo Bracelet every day. Lastly, we always send out a Take Out Menu to Customers with notes and a Charm, and I make sure to have my business cards to pass out everywhere I go.”

Congratulations to Our New 2021 Young Entrepreneurs Council!

Congratulations to Our New 2021 Young Entrepreneurs Council!

It’s that time of year again – time to welcome new members to our Young Entrepreneurs Council!

We’re thrilled to share the new Owlettes and BROs (Boys Representing Origami Owl®) selected to be a part of this year-long council serving and providing a youthful perspective to help develop a strong program. Young Entrepreneurs Council members represent their fellow Owlettes and BROs, while making a difference and gaining leadership skills.

Congratulations to Our 2021 Young Entrepreneurs Council!

Here’s what each of our new council members said about why they love being part of the Young Entrepreneurs Program.

Lourdes Joselyn Alvarado, 15 years old, from Pennsylvania

“The Young Entrepreneurs Program has provided me the opportunity to run my own business and make money that I can save toward my financial goal. Also, through this program, I’ve been able to gain more confidence in public speaking. It’s also helped me step out of my comfort zone and connect with other Young Entrepreneurs around the country.”

 

Kayla Edgar, 14 years old, from Canada

“At times I feel I have told my story so many times that it’s just not interesting anymore, but it’s amazing to see people’s reactions when they hear what I have done in the past three years by being involved in this program. I am an inspiration to youth and Designers I know. I need to keep telling my story, and Bella’s story, to continue the ripple effect.”

 

Lily Gast, 13 years old, from Florida

“The Young Entrepreneurs Program has affected my life by helping me become more social. I give back to my community more. Overall, it has changed my life for the better. Origami Owl has taught me to speak to larger crowds confidently and to comfortably have conversations with adults.”

 

 

Hadley Golden, 13 years old, from California

“I treasure being a part of the Origami Owl community because the love is unconditional, everyone matters and everyone’s voice is heard. The Young Entrepreneurs Program means so much to me to have a group of amazing Young Entrepreneurs who love to be a Force For Good and are always there for each other!”

 

 

Cassidy Grover, 13 years old, from Canada

“Origami Owl has impacted my life in many ways. It has made me more confident in myself and taught me how to love me for me. I will always be thankful to this amazing company.”

 

 

Minh-Grace Ngo, 12 years old, from Washington

“The Young Entrepreneurs Program has impacted my life by giving me a great new jewelry style and friends who help me and support me when I’m stuck. Origami Owl has shown me how to run a business. I also now know that my mom and I have something in common we can’t get enough of – Origami Owl jewelry!”

 

Elizabeth Hendrickson, 15 years old, from Florida

“Origami Owl has given me a community I can always count on. It has helped me maintain confidence in myself, and so many amazing opportunities that I’m forever grateful for, especially being able to work a successful business at a young age and grow in it.”

 

 

Isabel LaPorte, 13 years old, from Canada

“Two years ago, when I joined, my ‘why’ was simply to spend more time with my mom and learn a bit about businesses; since then, I have discovered that Origami Owl is so much more than just my mom and me. I have made friends who live in another country. I’ve learned skills from our top Designers who I would have never heard of otherwise! Now, my ‘why’ is to connect with other Young Entrepreneurs, Designers and Customers whose stories I get to tell!”

 

 

Selina Novello, 19 years old, from Canada

“Origami Owl has a special place in my heart! I live by the Origami Owl mission daily in my life as I am constantly doing acts of kindness in my community and inspiring others. Without being a Young Entrepreneur, I don’t know where I would be today. I have learned so many business skills and had many opportunities through the program! I have become more confident in myself, business and organization skills, social selling and my abilities. I have also made so many connections and friendships with other Young Entrepreneurs and Designers that I’m sure will last a lifetime.”

 

Jadelynn Sanchez, 13 years old, from Texas

“The Young Entrepreneurs Program has impacted my life by being a Force For Good®. It has also helped me to continue to maintain a growth mindset, to help others develop, as well as myself. I believe that I personally should be well-developed, mind, body and soul, so that I can help others grow, as well.”

 

 

Kami Scheele, 13 years old, from Montana

“The Young Entrepreneurs Program has helped build my confidence, strengthen my relationship with my mom and empower me for the future. I love that I have built so many lasting relationships with fellow Designers and Young Entrepreneurs. This program has given me more than I could have ever imagined.”

 

Mattie Warren, 14 years old, from Indiana

“When I started Origami Owl, I didn’t know what I was going to do with it. I thought I would sell a little bit, but that would be it. I’ve since been presented numerous opportunities that I never in a million years thought I would have been presented. God has blessed my business with Origami Owl tremendously, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m so thankful I took the leap to do something with it, and I didn’t give up, didn’t quit, and I kept persevering. I love being a part of this company; I can’t wait to see what happens in the next few years!”

Katie Berg, 17 years old, from Montana

“Never in a million years would I have thought that a company and a chance to work with my mom would impact my life so much. I’ve been able to travel, learn to be myself and grow my confidence tremendously, meet some of my best friends, make memories that will last a lifetime and learn valuable business skills starting as a 12 year old.”

Congratulations, February Young Entrepreneur Incentive Earners

Rewarding our Young Entrepreneurs for their OWL-mazing achievements is just one of the ways we recognize our Owlettes and BROs for all their hard work!

And, we’re thrilled to recognize three Young Entrepreneurs who went the extra mile and spread the O2 love by sponsoring a New Designer or Young Entrepreneur team who also generated 100 PV or more in February. These three will be getting an even BIGGER prize!

Young Entrepreneur Spotlight

Meet Anna-Claire Schluter

From: Hallsville, TX

Age: 12 (turns 13 on February 28!)

Joined Origami Owl as an Owlette: August 1, 2020

Owlette partner: Shanna Schluter

Team Name: Team BGP

Anna-Claire and her mom, Shanna, triple-promoted to Team Leader and sponsored three (3) New Designers in January!

“Anna-Claire has been working hard getting people to join her on her Origami Owl journey,” shares Shanna. “I really think what drew them in was her sharing her love of the Lockets. All three ladies who joined our team last month had been gifted Origami Owl for Christmas through Jewelry Bars® Anna-Claire had hosted.”

Not only does Anna-Claire host Jewelry Bars every chance she gets, she also follows the O2 Vital Behaviors by wearing two or three pieces of jewelry everywhere and is always ready to tell her story – just like her Mentor, Executive Team Leader Lorri Nevil told her.

”Over Christmas, Anna-Claire was able to put together a Locket for her great-grandmother,” recalls Shanna. “It was her last Christmas with us, so we sat down and put together her story. She had four children, 11 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. In the Locket, we put in the Grandmother Leaf Charm, four (Swarovski®) Birthstone Heart Charms for each of her kids, and added the Justice League Swarovski Stardust Pack to represent her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Not only because her favorite color blue, but because it takes a powerful woman to have that kind of legacy. She was able to tell her story through that Locket, and Anna-Claire loves being able to share that with people.”

What Anna-Claire also loves about Origami Owl is that she can earn money through her business to buy her own vehicle – just like Origami Owl Founder Bella Weems-Lambert did.

“One of the three people who joined our team is also an Owlette,” says Shanna. “She is in Girl Scouts with Anna-Claire and when Anna-Claire mentioned how she could buy a car selling jewelry, she was all in! Anna-Claire is working hard to save up money for a big black truck that she told her Mentor she wanted the first time she met her at her booth.”

Anna-Claire also knows this company is about more than just jewelry and earning money for a car. Her and her mom have seen many people take comfort through our Lockets.

“We have so many stories of how Origami Owl has helped so many that we care about get through tough times and celebrate the good ones,” shares Shanna. “We’ve only been with Origami Owl for six months, but it’s just amazing how something so small can touch people in such a big way! It amazes me that a young child, not much older than mine, could start such an amazing company. I see that potential in Anna-Claire, and I thank Origami Owl for giving her the opportunity to run a business and rock it! I’m so proud of Anna-Claire and love seeing her shine!”
