With more than 330 Designers promoting up in August, you proved you were truly “limitless” last month!
And, two of these Designers – Alba Saenz and Julissa Schuster – promoted to Director!
Congratulations to Alba and Julissa who earned the incredible perks listed below! (Keep reading for more details.)
Alba Saenz – Started O2 Journey October 2017
“I started my O2 journey in April 2014, but after a bad Customer experience, I gave up. My Mentor saw my potential and never gave up on me, so I had a change of heart and re-enrolled in October 2017.”
“I honestly never imagined I would be able to reach Director. It’s been an amazing and humbling achievement. Earning Director means that through my own journey, I have been able to help my team reach their own accomplishments and goals.”
Tips for Success
- “Never give up. We all experience rough times and moments when we feel we can’t keep moving forward, but if I’ve learned something this past year, it is that nothing is impossible and our rough times help us appreciate the good moments and achievements even more.
- Work alongside your team; never above them. This business is really about team work. Having a good relationship with your team is key.
- Set your goals, your team’s goals and then work together to reach them.”
“My goals change monthly and evolve as my team does. Currently, my goal is to help as many of my team members as possible reach Senior Team Leader, so they can earn the Holiday Collection and a spot on the Costa Rica incentive trip. For myself, my goal is to continue to help my team and start working on more Force For Good® projects within my community.”
Julissa Schuster + Jada Cantu – Started O2 Journey June 2018
“Earning Director means that my team and I accomplished something amazing together in such a short period of time. We’re ready for more; together, we can do anything we pour our hearts into!”
Tips for Success
“The best tip I can give other Designers is to get to know your team. Know who they are and what they want out of this amazing company.
- Do they have kids? If yes, then send their kids a birthday card.
- Do they have pets? If yes, then comment on their fur baby’s photos and let them know you’re watching.
- Are they expecting a baby? If yes, then get together with your team and send them a gift card!
I also send gifts to all of our Owlettes and BROs on their birthdays because they are important and part of our team!
When you’re scrolling through Facebook, don’t just scroll. Take the time to stop and read and see what your Designers are going through. People love to know they are not alone. My team and I have created a special bond with one another. That helps us all love what we do even more with Origami Owl.”
“Senior Director, of course! No, in reality, I really want to enjoy being a Director. My next goal is to have at least two more Directors on our team by the end of the year. The sky is the limit for us!”
5 Perks of Being a Director
- Advancement Bonus + Director Generation Bonus
Not only do new Directors get a $500 cash Advancement Bonus after they earn Director for the first time, but they also have the opportunity to earn a Director Generation Bonus. The Director Generation Bonus is a bonus paid to Directors and above on volume produced by Directors on their Team (even those below Levels 1-4). For details regarding Director Generation Bonus amounts and qualifications, please refer to the Career Plan located in your Back Office “Designer Resources” section.
- Invitation to Attend the New Director Academy
The New Director Academy is an exclusive event full of inspiration, motivation and education for new Directors in their first year of achieving the title. Our next New Director Academy is on January 23, 2020 at The Scott Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona for those who promote to Director between September 2018 and December 2019. After a full day of leadership training, the event concludes with our iconic New Director Heart/Lock ceremony. Origami Owl covers the airfare for one, hotel accommodations, which the New Director shares with another inductee, and some meals. The New Director Academy is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other leaders and share the O2 love!
- Exclusive Convention Hoot Loot Hour, Training + Luncheon
During The O2 Experience – our annual convention – Directors and above, as well as Parliament members, are invited to attend an exclusive leadership training and luncheon. They also get their very own Hoot Loot Hour! That means you get to shop in the O2 Store before everyone else!
- A Special Surprise in the Mail from The Nest
The month after you earn Director for the first time, you’ll receive a special gift in the mail from the Founders and your family at The Nest! This is our “thank you” for working so hard at building your team!
- Elite O2 Directors and Above Facebook Group
Once you’re a Director, you’ll have the opportunity to join our O2 Directors, VPs and Parliament Facebook group where you can connect with other top leaders and ask any questions you may have about your business.
