My favorite part about being an O2 Mentor is helping my new designers with their debut parties! Imagine how contagious the excitement is when your helping someone launch their very own business!
I find it is not necessarily the proximity of your mentor that makes you successful, but how devoted your mentor is to your success. Whether your new designer is joining for a hobby to earn some holiday spending money or they are looking to build their business, both are equally important!
My approach is to personally walk new designers through the start of their career, whether they are local or cross country, along with providing crucial resources such as a new designer getting started guide, access to personal and commissioned training just for our team from Lynsey Jones of Party Plan Divas, and to gently nudge and encourage personal growth and development whole taking the designers cue on how fast they are ready to grow their business. A strong foundation is most important.
This along with a top team of leaders and teammates to interact with on our team Facebook page as well as local and virtual team meetings ensures the most successful and comfortable start to your business. I am very blessed and proud to have such an amazing team (success line) of helpful and talented Designers!
