February is Heart Health Awarness Month


February is Heart Health Awareness Month, I am so excited to announce that Jamberry has partnered with the American Heart Association to create a new charity wrap that will help the fight against heart disease.


On average, 1 in 3 women dies from heart disease, and as an organization founded by women, Jamberry wants to join the fight. The Heart Health Awareness wraps (which is a There's More wrap) are available for purchase and a $2 donation will be given to the AHA with each wrap sold.


Wear Red Day (a day dedicated to heart disease awareness), is quickly approaching on February 6. We hope you will join us in this cause and order your Heart Health Awareness wraps soon so you can join us in wearing red next Friday.


These wraps will also look great for Valentine's Day and National Nurses Week in May!!!

Why?

So many times when you hear someone recruit for a direct sales or network marketing business they tell stories of big paychecks, luxurious trips, cars and other fantastic rewards. But is that the reality of working your own business? Not at all. Thousands of women and men join a direct sales or network marketing business each year. The real story is that for most, they are never going to quit their full time job and maybe never earn more than a couple extra trips to Starbucks a month. Dreary thought, but does that mean that a direct sales business is pointless?

This is my candid confessional. My adventure into the world of direct sales. I have been in my business for almost one year. I have earned enough to stay active for another year but I am not any closer to quitting my day job than I was last March. I have had moments of tears and moments of personal triumph. I have wanted to reach for the stars one minute and quit the next. I have felt rejection and acceptance. It has been up and down, physically, emotionally and financially.

Yesterday I felt defeated. I had high hopes for an event in which I was able to participate. After a quiet day of very little action and no sales, bookings or recruits, I wanted to pack it in. I even said as much to my dear husband. I told him I was done. Why go through the disappointment after weeks of planning and organizing. Why put myself through that again and again? Why? Why? Why?

This is my why...


Her name is Kayla. She is five years old. As I write this blog post she is sitting across the living room from me, curled up on the couch under her favorite fleece blanket and playing on her LeapPad. She is my buddy, my shadow and my joy. She is my why.

When I was in the throes of discouragement my husband reminded me that there was a little girl watching me. Do I want her to see me quit when things get tough? Not really. Do I want her to learn that with perseverance and hard work anything is possible? Absolutely. 

Sure, I would love to rise to the top of the company. I would love to be pulling in five figure bonuses each month. I would love to quit my full-time job and work my business only. That would be awesome. Is it possible? Sure. Will it happen? I don't know. What I do know is that if I give up now I will never see where I can go. If I quit now, I will forever think of myself as a quitter. 

Somedays when the sales and bookings are rolling in, when the recruits are beating down your doors, you feel like you are on cloud 9. But then there are those days where it is so quiet you can hear crickets chirping. It is in those moments that your have to ask yourself, "What is my why?"

So Many Parties, So Little Time

I have been working my brain overtime in my efforts to organize my year ahead. I am excited to share with you some of what I have come up with this weekend!

I have been formulating party ideas and I am sharing them here with you! This year when you book a Jamberry party with me you will be able to choose from a variety of styles and themes.

A lot of people are familiar with the Jamberry Online Facebook party. This has been the main way many people have been introduced to Jamberry Nail Wraps. But, did you know that there are a variety of ways to do an online party? This year I am excited to offer a few different options.

Online Parties

1. The classic 10-day online party
2. 5-day online party
3. Fast & Furious Online Party (1 hour)
4. Jam-BINGO only (Great add on to a catalog party!)

Online parties are tons of fun, no matter which style you choose.

Catalog Parties

Not into Facebook parties and don't want to host at home, but you want to earn free hostess rewards? How about a catalog party? I will provide you with samples, catalogs and order forms. You gather orders, turn them in and then reap the benefits!

In-Home Parties

The mainstay of most direct sales businesses is the In Home Party. With Jamberry an in home party is more than just looking at a catalog. You get to try the product while hanging out with your girlfriends! In addition to the standard in home party I will also be offering some other choices. The ones listed here are only the beginning. If you have a theme in mind, just let me know when booking!

Birthday Parties

Is there someone in your life (or maybe yourself) that has a birthday coming up? How about a Jammin' Birthday? The packages shown below were created with 4 guests (including the birthday gal) in mind. But, we can always work it for more guests. Four sheets of wraps could be used for 8 guests. For the birthday parties you will choose 4 sheets of wraps prior to the party. I recommend ordering 3 weeks before the party date. The day of the party you will have what you need to do Jamicures! I will even come to your location to demonstrate the application method. Jamberry birthday parties are for girls 10 & up.  If you are interested in a Jammin' Birthday contact me for information and pricing.



Mommy and Me

Gather up your friends and your daughters and host a Mommy & Me party! Similar to the birthday party packages, you will order ahead of time so that the day of the party you can do full Jamicures! Again for local customers I will come to your location and demonstrate the application and answer questions.


The last party type is one that I am SUPER excited about. This is closer to the standard in home style party. You do not purchase ahead of time but this particular party is with creative types in mind! Did you know that with Jamberry you can design your own wraps? I love this and have been having way too much fun coming up with my own designs. So, with that in mind...

Host An Art Party! I will bring Jamberry samples for you and your friends to try out. At the party we will check out the product, talk about the Nail Art Studio and even start the design process! 


You can request any of the parties mention by emailing me at stephieb1975@hotmail.com or requesting a party at www.stephd.jamberrynails.net 

I am also working on prom and wedding ideas...more to come on those soon!

Ready... Set... Let's Party!
