Achieving Director is a huge accomplishment for Designers and their teams!
In addition to being near the top of the Career Plan, Directors get to enjoy many incredible perks! (keep reading below)
It also means leaders and their teams worked together to reach this goal – and we couldn’t be prouder of this OWL-mazing accomplishment!
And this year, Becca Porter kicked off the New Year by going all in and DOUBLE PROMOTING to Director in January!
We asked Becca a few questions about hitting Director – here’s what she shared.
Becca Porter – New Director!
From: Springfield, Oregon
Team: Team Charming! (“They’re amazing rock stars!”)
Been with O2: November 8, 2019
Not only did Becca Porter DOUBLE promote to Director in January, but she also hit her goal the first month!
“My team blew it out of the water,” shares Becca. “My goal was to hit Director in spring of 2021!”
And, she’s not stopping there.
“My main goal has always been to hit Executive Field Vice President,” says Becca. “As amazing as Director is, it’s a stepping stone to my bigger goal. I am going to earn that jeep. I have had my eye on the prize since day one!”
So, how did Becca and her team achieve Director in January?
It all came down to sponsoring.
“Sponsor! Sponsor! Sponsor!” shares Becca. “Team Charming sponsored 58 (yes, you read that right!) New Designers in January! We did it as a team.”
The last week of December, Becca and her team hosted a 2020 Customer appreciation event that wrapped up with a join incentive on December 31.
“It was EPIC,” exclaims Becca. “I hoped that 100 or so people would attend. We had 350 attend!”
So, if Director is your goal and you’re wanting to know how to achieve it, here are Becca’s Top 3 tips:
“Build those relationships! I sponsored seven New Designers in January and every one of them came to me. I believe this is because of the relationships I’ve built.”
“Be your imperfect, authentic self and share from your heart. Besides, who else are you going to be? Everyone else is already taken!”
“Consistency is key! It doesn’t matter if you have five or 50 hours a week to work this business. Just be consistent!”
Bonus Tip: “Go live on social media and share from your heart!”
And whatever you do, Becca recommends always acknowledging your team.
“Be there for your team when life is hard,” says Becca. “Be there to cheer them on when they excel. Love and nourish them, and be ever so sincere.”
Whether it is your team, VIPs or Jewelry Bar® guests, Becca believes heartfelt connections are key.
“If you have a Locket story that makes you cry, share that story often,” shares Becca. “Tears and all. Have a huge ‘why’ that is so big it makes you cry. If it does not bring tears to your eyes, it’s not big enough!”
Other January Promotions
We also had so many other incredible promotions in January!
We had 42 new Team Leaders, 39 Senior Team Leaders, 23 Executive Team Leaders, 3 Team Managers and 3 Senior Team Managers!
What an amazing way to kick off the New Year! Let’s keep the momentum going and make 2021 the best year yet!
