We’re halfway through our new, limited-time Level Up Leadership Challenge II, and we know you’re working hard to earn some OWL-some cash bonuses worth up to $1,500 USD | $1,950 CAD!

You can level up YOUR leadership by achieving Executive Team Leader or above, welcoming New Designers to your team and generating Personal Volume (PV).

Plus, the top three in sales during the program period based on cumulative Team Volume (TV), which is generated by New Designers in your Levels 1 and 2, will receive a luxury gift basket valued at $500 USD | $650 CAD with a look curated by Origami Owl® Co-Founder and CEO Chrissy Weems. That’s ON TOP of your Qualifying Tier, Tier I and Tier II rewards!

The Level Up Leadership Challenge II goes until June 30, 2021 – so you still have three months to earn it!

In February, Senior Director Aimee Johnson achieved the Qualifying Tier and Director Sandi-Rose Smith achieved Tier 1. (read their tips here)

A BIG congratulations to Aimee for moving on up in March and achieving Tier 1! Hoot Hoot!

Last month, seven Designers achieved the Qualifying Tier and six Designers achieve Tier I.

Qualifying Tier:

Congratulations to Senior Team Manager Joan Milligan, Senior Director Breanna Johnson, Director Becca Porter, Senior Director Erin Zapata, Director Eloise Layton, Senior Director Courtney Butler and Executive Director Karen Alaniz for achieving the Qualifying Tier!

Here’s are their top tips for other leaders:

Executive Director + 2019 Diamond Designer of the Year Karen Alaniz

From: El Paso, Texas

Team Name: Team Light of Believe

  1. “Never, EVER give up. Speak this goal to the world, to your VIPS, to your family and friends, to other leaders and to your accountability partner. Be determined this will happen and confident you can do this. YOU CAN! Reach out to your Mentor to update them on how close you are. Ask other leaders for tips and ideas. Creating a mindset of brainstorming helps tremendously.

  2. Break the qualifications down to bite-size pieces and check where you are through your Level Up Tracker in your Back Office. With a little over two months to go, Level Up is still attainable with strong goal setting, and of course, an accountability partner who can help you with excitement in hitting goals.

  3. Focus on the area you are not yet qualified in:

    1. Sponsoring: It is the two-for-one action that will help your sponsored Designer qualification and your Team Volume qualification at the same time. Expand by considering a fundraiser, joining some new networking Facebook or social media groups, or even going through the Back Office for the last three years to see who you have lost connection with as a Customer can change the ability to find new people on your team.
    2. Personal Volume: PV is the one thing that can be broken down into a weekly goal! Divide the PV needed by the weeks left to level up and set goals for how much in sales each week will be needed to achieve that goal. Further break it down to VIP sales, personal sales, online Jewelry Bars, etc. April is the BEST chance to have really high PV. Talk to EVERYONE you know about gifting for Mother’s Day.
    3. Tier II: The Team Volume of New Designers is slow. It is often helpful to reach out to all the New designers on your Levels 1 and 2 to see if they have a Take Out Menu and if they had their launch party. If they are here just for the discount, then helping them have a launch party to get free items may be their language. Consider doing a Mega Facebook event to help all new Level Up Designers. If a Designer had a launch party already, help her showcase our new product in her VIP group. A 15-minute unboxing can change a Designer’s entire excitement level and bring her VIP circle on board!”

Senior Director Courtney Butler

From: Independence, KY

Team name: Team Diamond

“The key to growth in your personal business AND team is to set a goal to consistently sponsor every month. For example, my personal goal is to sponsor at least two New Designers each month, which also means I need to be working all avenues of my business, including booking Jewelry Bars/events to meet new friends and future teammates. And in turn, continuously talking to my team to help those who want to grow and follow similar behaviors to achieve their goals, too. I always say, ‘pace of the leader is the pace of the pack.’ As leaders, we must blaze the trail for our teams to emulate our actions. If you’re feeling ‘stuck’ and having trouble sponsoring, make it your goal to book at least two new Jewelry Bars and break outside of the circle you’re in! And most importantly, be authentic and have fun sharing. Happiness is contagious!”

Director Becca Porter

From: Springfield, Oregon

Team Name: Team Charming!

  1. “Offer the opportunity to more people by talking about it in more detail during your Jewelry Bar® Facebook Lives. And if you’re not going live, GO LIVE! People need to get to know you to even be able to decide if they want you as a Mentor.

  2. Post more about our amazing company, including our Force For Good® efforts and Living Sparkly® campaign, to help people get to know us better.

  3. Share your accomplishments with your VIPs. My VIPs hear about every promotion, my newest You Matter Rewards items, earned incentive trips, when a VIP joins my team and more.

  4. It’s okay to be uncomfortable when asking people about the business opportunity. Talk to them anyway!

  5. Play Designer BINGO with your VIPs during your Jewelry Bars. Each BINGO square represents a perk of being a Designer, so it gives you an opportunity to chat about all the amazing benefits. I created a personalized BINGO board specifically geared toward my Origami Owl experiences, but there are many other ways you can make it personalized for you.

  6. Once you have a New Designer join your team, help them get off to a good start! Help them with their launch party. Share where they can find resources and trainings. Help introduce them to the rest of your team so they can get love and support!”

Senior Director Breanna + Bella Johnson (Mother-Daughter Team)

From: Mount Bethel, Pennsylvania

Team Name: Team B.elieve R.each E.xceed

  1. “Know your requirements and work on a plan to achieve them sooner rather than later.

  2. Work with your team to make it a team effort; it’s easier and way more fun to do it together!

  3. Believe in Yourself and Never Stop! You’ve Got This!”

Senior Team Manager Joan Milligan

From: Baltimore, Maryland

Team Name: Team Owlitude

  1. “Wear your jewelry.

  2. Write down your goals and your plan to accomplish them.

  3. Connect with your community of people and ask them to share about your Origami Owl business and the jewelry with their friends. Make it fun because everyone is looking for fun right about now!”

Director Eloise Layton

From: Outlook, Saskatchewan, Canada
Team Name:
The Charmed Forces

“Offer the opportunity to EVERYONE. When you don’t ask, you get a ‘no’ every time!”

Tier I:

Congratulations to Executive Team Manager Hope Erbert, Director Tatiana Quattrone Lessa, Senior Director Aimee Johnson, Executive Team Leader Marci Saxon, Senior Team Manager Marci Chavez and Director Holly Corbett for achieving Tier I!

Here are their top tips for other leaders:

Director Tatiana Quattrone Lessa

From: Boca Raton, Florida

Team Name: Team We Owl Can

  1. “Have a ‘Pick a Locket game’ (or something similar) during your Facebook parties so you can try to book more parties/Jewelry Bars.

  2. Offer (without ever pushing) to every Hostess to sign up before, during or after her party.

  3. Ask every Customer who wants to, or is thinking about making a purchase if they ever thought about signing up and getting their own discounts.”

Director Holly Corbett

From: Newark, Delaware


“Get out of your own way and focus on consistency. Get your head in the game. I know first-hand, because I got a little stuck and had to get my head back in the game by doing my personal development on a daily basis, adjusting my lens and refocusing. It is no secret that our businesses have changed and life as we know it has changed, but things are constantly changing. Pivot. The time is NOW! Share your genuine love of Origami Owl and seriously take a look at what this amazing company has done to enrich and change your life. Share it with others. Be authentic. Remember that we are all about SHARING not SELLING. This business is about more than extra income. Some people need the personal connection that we have, the recognition for doing a great job, the sisterhood and brotherhood that we offer, and most importantly, the feeling in your heart when you help someone tell their story. Focus on your WHY and start sharing. When you work to help others, you will see a change in your personal business. Lead with your heart; you can never go wrong.”

Executive Team Leader Marci Saxon + Rose Saxon-Housum (Mother-Daughter Team)

From: North Ridgeville, Ohio

Team Name: Sparkling Divas

  1. “Building connections with everyone you know in all aspects of your life is so important. Genuine connections that show you care help build trust. When you’ve gained someone’s trust, you’re truly successful.

  2. Always stay positive and focused, but never accept ‘no’ as a final answer. You never know when someone may reach out to make a purchase or join your team. Every interaction you have is important.

  3. Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t achieve it because it’s always possible!”

Executive Team Manager Hope Erbert

From: Clarkston, Michigan

Team Name: Team Hopeful

  1. “Sponsor! Don’t be afraid to turn a Customer into a Designer. Expand your network by asking everyone.

  2. Reach out to past Hostesses and inactive Designers on your team to host a party or talk about rejoining especially when we have an amazing join incentive.

  3. Host a virtual vendor event. I created a virtual vendor event for my home state and had such an overwhelming response that we’re making it monthly now!”
