June New Designer Spotlight: These Designers are Promoting Up + Achieving Milestones

We love celebrating new family members – and our New Designers are crushing it in their first six months! Keep reading to celebrate the successes of our New Designers who are promoting to new recognition levels and achieving big milestones, like generating over 800 PV their first month as a Designer and growing their team in the first 30 days!

We’re proud to recognize Young Entrepreneur Team, Designer Maria + Matilda Gonzalez and Designer Claudia Gomez.

Here are their tips for success for other New Designers:

Meet Young Entrepreneur Team, Designer Maria + Matilda Gonzalez, Generated 817 PV in June

From: Buena Park, California

Team Name: Mati’s Origami Owl

Started O2 Journey: June 9, 2021

So, how did they generate over 800 PV in their first month as a Designers?

“At any family gatherings, we had Take Out Menus and jewelry ready to share. We started by sharing the story of (Origami Owl Co-Founder Bella Weems-Lambert) and how that inspired me to start selling to raise my own spending money for a trip to D.C. Since this was family and close friends, we called out the items we thought they might like: the Dog Paw Charm for those with dogs and the Charms for my grandmas. For those who looked overwhelmed, we shared the My First Locket, which was a hit!”

Tips for New Designers

  1. “Take the time to learn all about the jewelry so you can better make recommendations to your Customers.
  2. Always have a Take Out Menu with you.
  3. Start with your family and friends, including the guys. For the guys, we’d usually say, ‘Would you like to buy your wife or girlfriend some jewelry?’”

 

Meet Designer Claudia Gomez, Generated 814 PV in June + Sponsored 1 New Designer (so far!) in July

From: El Paso, Texas

Team Name: Equipo Creé e Inspira/Team Believe and Inspire

Started O2 Journey: June 13, 2021

So, how’d she do it?

“I received the best help, support and guidance from my amazing team, who I also call my family. I also hosted Jewelry Bars®, kept in touch with my Customers and stayed active in my Facebook VIP group by posting at least five times a day.”

Tips for New Designers

“Always stay positive, keep going and push yourself forward with the best attitude. Always listen to your Customers and keep notes of their wish lists!”

Sand, Sun, Sea + the BIGGEST Announcement in O2 History: 2021 O2 Coastal Vacay Trip Recap

Sand, Sun, Sea + the BIGGEST Announcement in O2 History: 2021 O2 Coastal Vacay Trip Recap

The 2021 O2 Coastal Vacay Origami Owl® incentive trip to Clearwater Beach, Florida was filled with hugs, laughter and unforgettable memories! From ocean views, breathtaking sunsets and sudden downpours, our O2 Coastal Vacay earners enjoyed Florida in all its glory!

Incentive trip earners took full advantage of their 1-Day Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park pass (or alternate excursion choice)! Others decided sunset dinner cruises, wine tasting tours and days relaxing on the beach completed their perfect “vacay!”

But, they did more than just vacation – they made a difference in the community (more on that below!), enjoyed much-deserved recognition and spent time re-connecting (after more than a year apart!) with Origami Owl’s Co-Founders and fellow Origami Owl Designers!

Here’s a peek at some of the highlights from the trip (keep reading for more!):

Here’s a shareable link.

Think Goodness Random Acts of Goodness Activity

After the HUGE announcement that Origami Owl is expanding to become a brand collective on October 1, our trip attendees were invited to participate in a Think Goodness Random Acts of Goodness Activity where they went around the community blessing others with random acts of goodness. This experience showed how a little good can go a long way!

Share your Random Acts of Goodness photos on our Think Goodness Facebook and Instagram pages and make sure to tag @think.goodness!

Young Entrepreneur Spotlight: Top 3 PV Earners in June

Meet Kami Scheele – Generated Over 1,500 PV in June!

From: Havre, Montana

Age: 13

Joined Origami Owl as an Owlette: Officially for two-and-a-half years

Young Entrepreneur Team Partner: Laura Scheele

Team Name: The Locketeers

So, how’d she do it?

“We really work at being consistent in our business and practice this in our VIP group. We post daily and work to create original content. My mom takes our photos and makes graphics. It’s what gets us seen a lot more and makes our Customers excited.”

Top Tip for Other Young Entrepreneur Teams

“Be confident, even if you don’t know an answer.”

Meet Rose Saxon-Housum – Generated Over 1,300 PV in June!

From: North Ridgeville, Ohio

Age: 15

Joined Origami Owl as an Owlette: November 2020

Young Entrepreneur Team Partner: Marci Saxon

Team Name: Sparkling Divas Team

So, how’d she do it?

“I reached out to our Customers when new collections launched and made sure to keep them interested between launches.”

Top Tip for Other Young Entrepreneur Teams

“Follow up with your Customers and keep them updated on all the new collections and promotions. It’s also very important to make connections with them about more than just the jewelry.”

Meet Grace Brewer – Generated Over 1,200 PV in June!

From: Crawfordsville, Indiana

Age: 16 on July 21!

Joined Origami Owl as an Owlette: Unofficially, when my mom joined when I was 7 years old.

Young Entrepreneur Team Partner: Mishell Amick

Team Name: Shooting Owlstars

So, how’d she do it?

“We tried some different things in June. My mom oversaw our VIP community, and I was in charge of the Bella’s Birthday Bash promotion and the Disney Princess Collection launch. My mom had been sick for a while, so I tried to help out even more in June.”

Top Tip for Other Young Entrepreneur Teams

“Most people look at being an Owlette as a 50/50 job with your parent. Some months, my mom does more, and other months, I do. I wear my jewelry every day, which usually consists of pieces from the Empowerment Collection. I am often asked about the jewelry I’m wearing, and that’s when I tell people all about Origami Owl. Sponsoring has always been easy because we like to talk to people. We tell everyone how being a Designer has made life better for us and our family.”

Origami Owl® Virtual Convention Recognition Event July 23 at 6 PM CT

Origami Owl® Virtual Convention Recognition Event July 23 at 6 PM CT

We are getting excited for everyone to come together in person {and virtually!}, for our Think Goodness Launch Event, September 10-11, 2021 in Phoenix, Arizona!

As Origami Owl Co-Founder and CEO Chrissy Weems previously shared, this year’s event will be the first-ever Think Goodness event, and, while it will be different from our past events, it will be one for the record books!

Since this year’s event is months past our normal award timeline and will focus on the new Think Goodness launch, we’re going to do something NEW to celebrate what you achieved with your Origami Owl business between June 2020 to May 2021. Join us with your teams for a special virtual recognition event later this July, and be part of an exclusive meet-and-greet reception and photo opportunity at our in-person event if you’re an earner!

What to Expect

Save the date and invite your team and your family to join you to watch a special, virtual Origami Owl Convention Recognition Event on Friday, July 23 at 6 p.m. CT. This recognition event will include all the annual Young Entrepreneur awards, Level Up Leadership and normal convention recognition with a virtual twist.

This virtual event gives you the chance to rally your teams and celebrate one another, too! Create an in-person event (if you feel comfortable!) or a virtual Watch Party for your teams to cheer each other on! Dress up, walk a homemade stage, take pictures and plan to share them with the community.

Please note, this recognition event is in place of our typical Convention recognition and will not be included in our Think Goodness launch event this September. However, we are so excited to give you the exclusive chance to meet the Origami Owl Co-Founders, get a picture and celebrate you with a special reception at our in-person event. Stay tuned for more details!

Here’s a social image you can share with your teams!

RSVP “Going” to the Facebook event in the O2 Designers: News from the Nest Facebook group now so you can receive updates, and celebrate together as we prep for the event.
