Check Out Our Young Entrepreneur May Incentive Earners

Our Young Entrepreneurs spread the O2 love in May and made such a big impact in their communities!

From hosting Force For Good® give-back events to sharing the new, officially licensed Justice League for Origami Owl Collection, our Young Entrepreneurs carried out the O2 mission and made a difference in lives and their businesses.

Take a look at their results!

Congratulations, May O2 Mystery Box Earners

Congratulations to our May Incentive earners! Our Young Entrepreneurs were challenged to have a fundraiser for someone they wanted to help, or for a business/organization in their community, or both!

The earners will get an O2 Mystery Box with items hand-selected by Origami Owl Co-Founder Bella Weems-Lambert.

We want to continue Origami Owl’s kindness movement and we know our Young Entrepreneurs can make an extraordinary impact!

Here are the earners from May and what they did:

Ellie Beutin

Elli’s fundraiser was to help a one-year-old baby boy named, Josiah, with a congenital heart defect and Down Syndrome. The funds she raised will help pay for his medical bills.

Erin Collins

Erin fundraised for Operation Catnip of Gainesville, Florida, to help spay and neuter community cats and find them homes. When Erin was throwing the trash away one day, she saw a letter from Operation Catnip on top of the pile of trash and took it. She went to school and took all the money she had in her piggy bank ($2.17 in change), and asked her teacher to help her mail the money to Operation Catnip. She never told her mom what she was doing. The director of Operation Catnip called her mom expressing her gratitude and told her she had posted about Erin on their website. Erin’s story and donation had unknowingly started a ripple effect and other kids started to send in their piggy bank money as well!

Jazlyn Dawson

Jazlyn decided to do a fundraiser for the Community Pet Project by the SPCA. They take donations and give pet food to families who can’t afford it. By donating money, they help other families keep their pets well and alive.

Ava Deklerk

Ava’s fundraiser was for Little Hands Kids for a Cause. Little Hands is a local charity that helps families who have children with life-threatening illnesses. The organization really need funds right now because they can’t hold any fundraisers due to the pandemic. Erin is giving them 75 percent of her commissions, plus a raffle prize. She has learned that it takes a lot of work to run a fundraiser, however, she wants to keep learning more and helping them.

Wellington Emanual

Wellington fundraised for Five N Two Food Pantry. It is a local food pantry in his community. They provide food, clothes, and more to their community. He has given them over $300 in May to support a food drive that provided over 100 pounds of food to community members in need. He will be extending this through the month of June.

Miley Haight

Miley does a different fundraiser every month. In May, she fundraised for Ben’s Builders and donated all her commission, plus bought $250 in Legos for their organization. Ben’s Builders is a local organization that donates new and gently used Legos to kids at hospitals in her area who will be hospitalized for a long time. Ben’s parents do this in his memory because he passed away. It is really close to her heart because her sister also passed away from a terminal illness.

McKayla Hartung

McKayla’s fundraiser was for her neighbor who is now on a heart donor list in Denver. This heart is very much needed for him to survive so she created the fundraiser, “Operation Save a Life: Be a part of giving a heart.”

Jocelyn Irby

Jocelyn fundraised for a group in her dance studio called Darby’s Dancers. It is a group of students (both female and male) with physical or developmental disabilities, and they get to learn dance! Her goal is to sponsor a year of classes, dance attire, and costumes for one of those students. Although she didn’t quite hit her goal, it was enough to provide dance attire and shoes for one student for a whole year, and she’s not stopping there.

Isabel LaPorte

In February 2017, Isabel’s grandfather passed away due to a brain tumor. One of her biggest regrets is not being able to say goodbye to him. Each summer since then, her family has taken part in the Brain Tumour Walk in their city to support the Canadian Brain Tumour Foundation. Isabel set up a Facebook group and invited everyone she knew, which led them to inviting their friends. She ended up having over 50 people in her party. She posted every day showcasing different pieces. She had fun and was able to donate to the organization that is near to her heart. Plus, she got two new Customers who will be shopping with her permanently.

 Brianna Standen

Brianna’s fundraiser total was $440 and 100 percent of the commission will be going to the Light House Rebuild Fund in Lions Head. This fundraiser is also going to help with the money fundraised by her father who has been making lighthouse birdhouses. This will be making a huge impact as this lighthouse is so very special to her family and the town of Lions Head.

Deja Sullivan

Deja chose Eden Animal Haven for her fundraiser. They help cats find forever homes, are fully vetted, and don’t stay in cages. They recently took in 15 kittens that have leukemia and were past their max. Deja feels so blessed to be able to help them and can’t wait until she can open her own sanctuary for kitties.

Edgar Zavala

Edgar does monthly fundraisers and selected The Emilio Nares Foundation in May. The organization provides rides to appointments for children who are cancer patients. They also provide Emilio’s Loving Tabs which are specially designed shirts to facilitate access to medical devices without requiring a scared child to remove their garment.

Meet the Newest Senior Directors + Director

Meet the Newest Senior Directors + Director

 So many leaders rose to the occasion in May and achieved exceptional promotions with their teams!

We’re thrilled to celebrate three leaders who promoted up to SENIOR Director and welcome one NEW Director in Canada.

We asked them what it took to achieve these exciting promotions with their teams – here’s what they shared.

New Senior Directors

Senior Director Mirta Hernandez

From: Progreso, Texas

Team: Team Wise Owls

Been with O2: 5.5 years

When did you realize you could potentially reach “Senior Director” in May?

“Senior Director, can’t believe it yet! At the beginning of the month that wasn’t a goal I had. Actually I saw the possibility of that happening towards the end of the month, which was so nerve wrecking. It took a lot of communication with my leaders and upcoming leaders.”

How did you rally your team to achieve it?

“We did a couple of customer appreciation events during the month, which went very well for the team. The momentum and excitement kept growing throughout the month as we welcomed New Designers and celebrated promotions.”

What is your advice to other Designers who want to achieve a promotion?

“There is opportunity out there; we just have to be willing to do the work. Reach out to your team and don’t be afraid to ask for tips. I am always learning from other people and, with trial and error, you are going to see what works for you best.”

Senior Director Maime Miller

From: Weslaco, Texas

Team: Team Owl-Rageous

Been with O2: 8 years as of September 2012

Welcomed 378 New Designers to the team in May

What caused you to go for Senior Director and achieve it?  

“Mid-month… (my team member) Alba Saenz told me she was going to work for Senior Director. We partnered up and kept each other accountable for the rest of the month, and that worked! We pushed each other and did it together. We took massive action! Daily, I would check reports and see our sponsoring numbers going up and give shout outs to our top sponsors and promotions to keep the momentum going.”

What did you focus on from a leadership/mentorship perspective?

“I focused on sponsoring and developing leaders. I offered an incentive for both sponsoring and promoting. As a team, we had 78 new promotion and that was amazing. I would text each person to congratulate them as well as to ask their next goal. We congratulated each new achievement on our Team Owl-Rageous page and cheered each other on. Many of our New Designers saw our fun O2 family and were hooked!”

What is your advice to other Designers?

“Set your goals and keep working your business, take massive action, and surround yourself with like-minded people! I love personal development and do it daily to keep my mind focused on self-improvement. When you help your team reach their goals you will also reach yours. Teamwork is key along with consistency!”

Senior Director Alba Saenz

Team: Pixie Sparkle

Started with O2: 2014

Over 85 New Designers joined the team and over 85 percent earned the Essentials Kit upgrade in May!

Why was May different to achieve Senior Director?

“My team has had its ups and downs and some months it seemed like (Senior Director) was just a wishful thinking goal. However, May was different. From very early in the month, I saw that the whole team was working, and excited to share our latest collection. We as a team hit Paid As Director around the second week of May and that is when I realize that we as a team could work for the Senior Director title.”

What was your focus in May?

“I’ve always believed that my business and my team should not be about me, it should be about them and their goals. I also believe that’s the key to our team’s success – from working with each Designer to see where their goals are and how we can help them achieve it, to helping them see the importance of sponsoring. I let my team know where we were in terms of team volume and what goal I was hoping to reach as a team. I was able to see them come together and work hard to help our team achieve that goal. My team is the reason I earned this title and I will forever appreciate them for it.”

What is your advice to other Designers?

“My biggest tip is never give up. You may have months that are difficult; that make you question your goals and your reasons for being a Designer, but that happens sometimes. If you give up, you will stay stuck there, while if you keep pushing and working hard, things can, and will get better. Once they do get better, you will also appreciate them more. I don’t believe I became a Senior Director; I believe we became a Senior Director Lead Team, and that makes all the difference.”

New Director

Director Eloise Layton

Outlook, Saskatchewan, Canada

Team: The Charmed Forces!

Started with O2: March 2015

How long has Director been your goal?

“Back when I was still quite new to O2, I watched a couple of new Directors open their Director Boxes live on Facebook and I remember thinking, ‘That’s going to be me one day.’ Promoting to Director – to be a Director-led team – has always been my goal. I look forward to being a more direct part of everything O2. When I place my lock on the Director’s Heart at the Nest, I will have arrived!”

 How do you believe you and your team achieved “Director?”

“We truly have an amazing team culture. We get together weekly via Zoom; my leaders are very active in helping to run our team page; we have a very strong culture of unity within our team that helped us work towards this goal.

The join special and New Designer incentive was the best ever! We not only were sponsoring so much more than usual, but our New Designers were reaching 100 PV+ because they wanted to receive the free (Essentials Kit) upgrade! Team Leaders reached their paid as and beyond and we celebrated so many Designer and leader promotions.  The more they did, the more the excitement grew….and the more the excitement grew, the harder we worked, which sparked more to get excited about! It was a whirlwind of sponsoring, selling, rallying and celebrating.

My team worked so hard and pushed themselves more than ever  – reached out more than ever – for the common, collective goal.  They Just.  Didn’t.  Stop! I am so proud of them!”

How have things changed for you and your business during COVID-19?

“Previous to mid March, I ran my business solely through in home Jewelry Bars and events.  I did online parties only when I absolutely had to, so the changes that have taken place have been hard! I have pivoted to Facebook parties and being more present in my VIP group. The best advice I can give to other Designers is, ;Share, don’t sell.’ What we have is special and when you can help someone create their story in a Living Locket,  you don’t have to push the sale.  Whether you are in home, at an event or online, when a piece resonates with a Customer, they will want to take it home.”


Set your goals this month, take the advice of these leader and go for it!

May New Designer Spotlight: These New Designers are Unstoppable

May New Designer Spotlight: These New Designers are Unstoppable

They quintuple-promoted in May!

They saw the potential of their Origami Owl® businesses and RAN with it!

So many of our New Designers who are within their first six months with Origami Owl have achieved unbelievable growth – you could say they’re “unstoppable!”

Meet a few of our New Designers who QUINTUPLE-promoted within their first month with Origami Owl and find out how they did it.

Kristasha Martinez, Executive Team Leader

Home: Brooklyn, NY

Team: The Goal Rushers (with Melissa); The Empowering GEMS (Giving Empowering Mentoring Sisters)

Started with O2: May 1, 2020

Why did you decide to start your Origami Owl business?

“I attended a Jewelry Bar party and instantly fell in love with the jewelry and wanted a discount. Due to COVID-19, I had also been working from home, so I wanted to take the opportunity to make some extra cash.”

You brought on a lot of people in May – what do you think attracted so many people to you and starting an Origami Owl business?

“When I began O2, I reached out to my closest family members and friends. I was just so excited about the discounts and being able to make some extra cash I felt like I had to share this opportunity. They saw the excitement and the fire I had in me and decided they wanted to join in as well.”

How has your Origami Owl business helped you during this time?

“I believe nothing happens on accident. On May 22, my current job let everyone go due to COVID-19. This opportunity helped me pay two of my bills for the month of June. This opportunity has also given me more friends and a bigger community.”

How would you encourage other Designers starting out?

“The advice I would give to anyone trying to start their business is to not fear the unknown and go for it. Enjoy the perks and endless opportunities. Come into the company with an open heart and positive energy.”

Godi Carvajal, Executive Team Leader

From: Puerto Rico; living in Sanford, FL

Team: Origami Owl Latina Entrepreneurs

Started with O2: May 16, 2020

Why did you decide to start an Origami Owl business?

“I started my Origami Owl business because I needed to generate an income and show other ladies the opportunity to achieve the same in an easy and simple way just by creating stories in a beautiful piece of jewelry.”

How do you think you attracted so many New Designers to your team?

“The key to my success was the 100 percent commitment I set myself to work the business from day one. The way I attracted each of my New Designers was with the confidence I showed them when presenting this beautiful Origami Owl opportunity. Each one of them is a key part to the success of this amazing team.”

How has this business helped you?

“This success is not only helping me generate the income I need, but it is also helping me share this great opportunity with the Latino community so that they learn about this opportunity and live this wonderful experience that I am living.”

Anything else you’d like to add?

“COVID-19 was the push to reinvent myself and look for a solution to my loss of income. I say to the other Designers, ‘in any bad situation, we always need to find the positive side; we need to take advantage of this business opportunity and the time we have, let’s keep showing this Origami Owl opportunity to other ladies who may need and are looking for something great that can lift and motivate them and their families.’

This all started with a leap of faith!”

How These Long-Time Designers and A New Designer Promoted Up

How These Long-Time Designers and A New Designer Promoted Up

April was packed with several stellar promotions – we just had to get some of our OWL-mazing Designers’ tips to pass along to you! From long-time Designers achieving Director and Senior Director to a New Designer who quadruple-promoted in her first month, no matter where you are on your O2 journey, they have something for you.

Take a look at just some of the Designers who advanced their titles last month and how they did it.

Long-Time Designer Hits Senior Director

Lora Schott

New recognition title: Senior Director

Been with Origami Owl: 7 years

Her team’s focus in April…

“Our team focused on Customer Appreciation in April. We did a huge Mega Team Facebook Party in early April; made it super fun with lots of games and prizes for our guests. We ended up having 7 ladies from the event join and I lost track of how many online Facebook parties were booked. We truly engaged with our Customers during this event, and focused on following up and took notes on what they may like in the future.”

How she’s shifted her efforts in the wake of COVID-19…

“Personally, I went from working some side jobs to focusing solely on O2 for income. I know that many on my team were experiencing the same situation I was in. I typically go to work during the day, and only do O2 a few evenings a week. This all changed when I could not go to work anymore (I do marketing for a big steakhouse chain). I truly had to focus on replacing my marketing job income with O2. I’ve taken all the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace classes he has ever had, and even taught them to high school students. He always says to have multiple sources of income, in case something happens. Well, that happened. For the first time in quite a while, I was able to give 100 percent of my focus to my personal sales, my VIP group and my team. It was a huge eye opener to me that by focusing on only one thing, O2, I could make a huge impact on running my own business and helping my team with theirs. Our team members who also lost their jobs were able to brainstorm ideas together and move mountains by focusing and holding each other accountable.”

Her mindset and advice to others…

“Don’t give up! If it was easy, everyone would be doing it! Give EXCELLENT customer service, go above and beyond. They will remember that when they need gifts.”

Her next goal…

“Helping more of our team members increase their income during this tough time and reach their personal goals.”

Her advice to others leading a team…

“Team meetings are key. I believe ‘Those who show up, go up.’ Leaders need to have meetings and trainings. I’ve done monthly meetings in my home since the very first month I started. We always had Facebook Live going for our out-of-area teammates to join in. Now we have Zoom meetings, which are working out very well, too! Even if you have one person coming to the meeting, DO IT! Learn as much as you can and share it with others!”

She Made Director!

Tatiana Lessa

New recognition title: Director

Been with Origami Owl: 6 years

Her Goals for April and How She Achieved Them…

“(My goal was) to have as many Designers generating 250 PV with at least 1 active Designer and to have as many Designers sponsoring at least 1 New Designer as possible. The special (April Pay It Forward) 40 percent off code on a kit was golden and my team was probably tired of me, but that’s all I talked about it in April. I wasn’t thinking about (Director) until it became possible like the last three days of April.”

The Keys to Achieving Director in April Were…

“The team connection, the love and support we have in our team is huge and we were all cheering for each other. When some Designers saw their teammates getting promoted, it lit them up.

Recognition in our team group is huge and makes a big difference; everyone likes to see their names for everyone to see.”

What She Shares With Potential Designers…

“You love the product and you really have nothing to lose, just start for your own discounts and who knows? Maybe some extra cash if you’d like. No monthly fees or minimums.”

Her Next Goal Is…

“To keep posting and talking about the magic word: ‘Sponsor!’ To keep recognizing, motivating and growing our team. To be a Paid-As Director every month. And to have two successful virtual parties a week.”

Her Final Word of Advice…

“If you’re stuck or feel like giving up, change your mindset. Only you can make it happen.”

How They Approached April…

“Our team went into April with a mindset of giving back as much as possible to our community. We wanted to celebrate ‘Pay It Forward’ all month long. I posed a ‘Bucket Filler’ challenge and everyone stepped up and participated, far exceeding my expectations. As a team, we completed more than 100 random acts of kindness. I truly feel all the positive energy and good we did for others helped to fuel and motivate us all.”

How Fundraisers Helped Their Team…
“Many of us offered fundraisers this month as a way to give back. Our Young Entrepreneurs really led the way with that initiative. These fundraisers helped to not only motivate our team and add to our challenge for the month, but they also drove sales. Lily and I were able to donate almost $1,500 to various organizations and I know as a team that amount is much higher.”

Their Best Advice for Getting “Unstuck…”

“For anyone who may feel overwhelmed or stuck or even just starting out, I encourage you to partner with someone and host a fundraiser for the organization of their choice. Six years ago, my first Jewelry Bar was a fundraiser, and I still have a ton of loyal Customers to this day from that event. They are a great way to do good in your community while expanding your Customer base.”

Their Next Goal…

“Promoting was several years in the making and it feels amazing to have accomplished that as a team. My next goal is to earn a pretty hear- shaped award for the shelves in my office!”

Her Extra “Thanks…”
“Thank you to all of the Designers who share your knowledge in trainings; your graphics with the field and your love in our groups. And to my Sister Owls – Lily and I love you so much!”

New Recognition Title: Senior Team Leader

Started with Origami Owl: April 6, 2020

How She Got the Excitement Going….

“I had just started (my O2 business) and wanted to reach out to as many of my supporters as possible to explain my new adventure. I had so many people who were excited to order! Also, when friends and friends of friends saw my success, they wanted in on it!”

How She Approached Sharing the Business Opportunity…

“My mentality going into this was definitely the key to why I was so successful. I was determined to let everyone I knew in on why I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this company and the jewelry itself!”

Why the Origami Owl Business Right Now…

“My team and Mentor have been super helpful and easily accessible. I believe since we are all home, this venture has helped me, and I’m sure others, to focus on something positive instead of being locked down. My best advice for New Designers is to not be afraid to ask questions of your Mentor and to utilize the resources in the Back Office.”

Her Next Goal…

“My next goal is to help my new team to have an amazing beginning like I did! To lift them up and empower them like my Mentor did for me! Origami Owl has given me an amazing opportunity and I am thankful for it! I am also truly blessed to have found the community of women that I work with!”
