I just came home from an amazing weekend in Anaheim, California for the Lilla Rose 2018 convention. It was a sunny, moderate temperatures, breezy. There was plenty of opportunity to enjoy my Lilla Rose friends, food, laughter, and fun.
Hubby and I had such a great time.
We got a renewed vision for our family, refreshing time together, and recalibrated goals for my business.
We even had fun dying our hair a temporary purple.
We’re always treated like ROYALTY by the Lilla Rose Headquarters.
It really has been the best business builder choice for me to be a Lilla Rose.
But, it wasn’t all fun and games either!
There was quite a lot of learning by some direct sales training greats, such as Melanie Moore of Cinchshare (affiliate link), Belinda Ellsworth (Step Into Success), and Lindsay Tomkins, as well as internal Lilla Rose leaders leading breakout sessions. We also got to hear the rebranding, the vision and the direction of Lilla Rose by its founder and inventor of the flexi clip, John Dorsey.
Great new things are coming to this ten year old company of less than 9000 Stylists!
One of the things that stood out to me was something that came from Belinda Ellsworth. She said that many people are afraid to ask about the Business opportunity, and if *I* (taking this personally) do not present it to customers at vendor events, meet ups, or pop up Style Ups, what customers might think I’m communicating is that I do not think they can do what I do.
Oh. my. goodness. That is the furthest thing from the truth!
But oh so eye opening!
If I have unintentionally communicated to a customer that I don’t think they can do this business, I am so, so, so sorry! I have no doubt that any one of my friends, family, and customers can do this business at least as well as I can, but probably even better. I do not do hair. Ok, so I do it a little bit. But I’ve seen many of you ladies with hair styles far sweeter than my own!
What I am really thinking is that I don’t want to be one of *those* direct sellers from many years ago who bothers their friends.
Recently I listened to a Tip of the Day or training by Brenda Ster here at the Sassy Suite, and she said that most do not actively ask for ladies/men to join our teams or to host a Style Up.
She’s right. I have not actively asked many at all.
I know I’ve taken this Bible verse in James a bit out of context, but I’ve been reflecting on it since conference.
Faithful people ask, do the work related to success, and wait in faith for results.
Successful people ask.
And in the meantime, if I don’t actively ask, I’m not communicating a belief in my followers, readers, customers, friends, and that would just break my heart. I would not be offering you a tremendous opportunity. I would not be offering a chance for an income, the relationships I have grown to love, the community that is Lilla Rose.
I would not be offering the opportunity for you to grow and bloom into a wonderful Rose.
I’m asking now.
How would a direct sales business with Lilla Rose benefit your family? Would you like to earn a little extra income for dance or soccer clubs? Do your children need braces? Would this business help you achieve some longer term goals, like taking a vacation or even being debt free?
Would you love a supportive, non competitive community of lovely ladies to help you grow in skills?
Would you love a challenge?
Do you love to meet with friends and serve a greater good and purpose?
How could a Lilla Rose business help your cause and fundraising?
I do really want to help you grow in a business, however that looks for you.
In the meantime, Lilla Rose is offering some amazing new incentives for those enrolling as a new Stylist.
It’s going to be an amazing growth.
I’m asking you.
