Congratulations to our OWL-mazing Designers on their incredible achievements in February! From rank advancements, top achievers, myO2 rewards earners and more, we’re thrilled to recognize you for all your hard work!

Watch as Origami Owl Co-Founders Shawn Maxwell and Tyson Basha recognize YOU for your OWL-mazing achievements in February and play St. Patrick’s Day trivia with Nest team members!

Designer Spotlight: Aida Schwartz, Senior Team Leader

  • Started O2 Journey: December 2019 – In February, Aida quadruple promoted from Designer to Senior Team Leader, generated 697 PV and sponsored two New Designers who both generated 100 PV!
  • Home State: Florida
  • O2 Business: Works her business part time. By day is an RN. By night is a Designer. “Origami Owl is always with me on my cell phone, lanyard and the Necklace or Locket I’m wearing for the day.”

“My goals change from week to week,” shares Aida. “My first month, I concentrated on getting one new VIP member a day. Month two, I decided to do at least one party and one event, and both went well! This month, I am focusing on trying to find a new way to find new Customers and decided to try a bridal avenue. I am reaching out to wedding planners, photographers and florists to see if they could mention my flyers to their brides. I also decided to do two parties this month and continue to get more VIPs. I also have the best Mentor, Senior Team Manager Tatiana Quattrone Lessa, who is constantly teaching and helping me.”

Tips for Success

“Get out there and talk to the person next to you at your local grocery store, pharmacy, hair salon, etc.,” says Aida. “Carry pictures in your purse, and Take Out Menus and Lookbooks in your car, because you never know when that conversation will yield a sale. Find humor and make someone laugh. The minute someone laughs with you is the minute you made a new friend. I always say I have never met a stranger I didn’t like and I don’t believe in strangers – just friends I haven’t me yet! Just love what you do; never force a sale. I tell my friends I only want you to buy if you really love it. I will love you either way. Lastly, never be scared of failure; failure teaches you what doesn’t work, so that one day it will.”
