My favorite part of going to Stampin’ Up!’s annual convention is seeing everyone! I get to see gals in my demo group that don’t live close, and sometimes this is the only time we see each other in person. Every year I look forward to new gals in the group coming and joining the fun! Speaking of newbies to convention, there was a march on stage for convention First Timers and I think I heard over 1/3 of the attendees were there for the first time. That is just plain AWESOME!
One of the highlights of this convention was walking across stage with 3 members of my demo group for recruiting!! Congratulations to Dawn Gutro, Liz Miller and Oksana Semenska!! I’m so proud of you gals!! I wish I had a photo, sadly, along with being great recruiters they were also the photo takers in the group hehehe. Here is a group shot of us all at dinner.
My friend Liz also got to walk across stage for her 5 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! Wow, we’ve been together 5 years, and she still loves me…imagine that!! LOL! I love bragging on them, and I can’t help posting a picture of her up there on stage. I’m a proud momma.
2011 marked my 5th consecutive year in the Top 3 of the company for sales. Along with this, I was able to share a moment on stage with some of the gals who topped the sales charts this year in the company. What an honor! This year also marked a milestone for me, I hit $600,000 in Career Personal Sales (in 7 years!!). Shelli Gardner (CEO and Co-Founder of SU…and all around amazing lady) actually called me at home to congratulate me when I hit this milestone. WOW!!! That was a pretty fantastic feeling.
