They Earned a Trip for 2: Tips and Stories from Two Designers
Mishell became a Designer in May of 2014 and quickly fell in love with hosting in-person Jewelry Bars to help her Customers capture their stories in meaningful Living Lockets.
Since then, she’s made it to Director and earned a spot on seven Origami Owl incentive trips, loving each one. She even had a belated honeymoon of sorts with her husband, Brian, on one of the trips to Cancún.
“He saw how genuine the founders, the management and Designers were,” Mishell recalls. “Seeing it through his eyes made me want to earn every single trip from then on. It makes me want every one of my team members to earn trips. There’s something so special, like magic in the air, when it comes to Origami Owl incentive trips.”
Then 2020 and the pandemic came around and Mishell says the shift to online-only instead of her usual, in-person events was “difficult.”
“It took me quite a while to feel comfortable with running my business solely on social media platforms,” Mishell admits. “I went into this trip with an ‘if I make it, I make it’ mentality. But then, I got ramped up again.”
So what changed the trajectory of Mishell’s business?
“Sponsoring in August,” she shares. “I love sponsoring so that other people receive the blessing of Origami Owl as I did. I got back to my roots of helping and teaching others. Earning this trip is always the icing on the cake.”
Mishell knows what it feels like to be close to earning a trip – she was only one new team member away from earning a trip to Hawaii with Origami Owl her first year.
“I was too scared to (add another team member). It hurt to see it slip away,” Mishell says. “That lit a fire in me to never miss another trip. You can do this! Even if you earn for one, you earned something amazing! Don’t give up on yourself.”
Now, Mishell is looking forward to taking her husband, Brian, to the Walt Disney World Resort and Theme Park to “experience Disney as adults and not parents!”
Meet Tina Carrion
She created a Living Locket at her niece Alyssa’s Jewelry Bar just a month after her beloved father passed away. She was just seeking a little bit of sunshine. She loved her Locket, but it wasn’t until she received her kit after she joined and began looking through Charms and remembering her father that it all clicked.
As I built my Living Locket and Storyteller Living Locket Watch, “I felt he was there with me.”
The meaning she found quickly translated into love for the Origami Owl jewelry and something deeper, and she began attracting more friends and connections. Now an Executive Team Leader, Tina has earned enough Points for a Trip for 2 in the O2 Coastal Vacay incentive trip!
Here’s are the tips she shared and her excitement for this incentive trip:
O2: How do you feel about earning the trip?
TC: “I have NEVER in my dreams imagined I’d be one to earn a trip, and I’ve shared the love and interest my little 8-year-old sidekick Ka’iulani. It will be her VERY first time at Disney World…and she has ALWAYS wanted to ride in an airplane.”
O2: Have you been working towards this and if so, what did you focus on and do to achieve it:
TC: “Not at first, but…I just got lucky to have someone by my side (sponsor Christina Davidson) who just made learning easy and natural. At the end of the month, I gained more confidence and knew the incentive trip WAS after all possible. From then and leading up to this month, I just kept having fun each day with it and was excited to learn and GIVE BACK. I focused on how to be a Force For Good…then, before I knew it…we earned our trip for 1.”
O2: For those who are counting themselves out of this and feel they don’t have enough time left to achieve it, what would you say to them?
TC: “That was me just a few months ago. Don’t ever give up before you even try…you can if you want; all you gotta do is start.”
