As a mother, you get that feeling of pride when your children reach goals and milestones in their lives. The same feeling is true of my Stampin Up demonstrator group, it is as exciting and even more exciting when one of my “kids” reaches their goals.
Today is one of those days, my friend and downline Vera Milne has achieved the Stampin Up’s Rising Star!!! Vera is an inspiration to so many. The Rising Star is an award program for new demonstrators in their first year, and the very first goal that Vera set when joined Stampin Up. She worked hard, and had lots of fun making this goal a reality. She will earn a cash bonus, recognition at convention AND a trip to the Stampin Up Home Office in Riverton, Utah!!! WAY TO GO VERA!!!
Her reaction when she made it:
“I’m just at lost of words right now. It’s truly unbelievable.”
Vera’s Stampin Up Journey to Rising Star:
I went to my first Stmapin Up party about 8 yrs ago. I fell in love with it. I only went a few times due to where I lived. Then we moved to a bigger city and I wanted to get more involved but I couldn’t seem to make that happen. Then, we decided to build a retirement home on a little resort from Village Mills, Texas named “Wildwood”. I asked my “soon to be” new neighbors, if they had ever heard of Stampin Up, and only one person had.
I could hardly wait to tell them all about it. That person agreed to hold my first Stampin Up party in Wildwood (WW). I felt that I had finally met a group of people that shared the same interest. We began having SU parties every two weeks. We started out with about 5 and today (about 2 years later) we have about 14. When we had our first $1000.00 party everyone was so excited that they all wanted one so everyone supported each other to reach their goal. We had SEVEN $1000.00 plus parties in a roll. God truly blessed us all.
I believe the key to all of our success is “Getting MORE Involved” with our customers and staying CONNECTED. To me, it’s more than just a party with a kit to make, snacks to eat and filling out an order form. It truly is about making life time friends.
I want to thank ALL my friends, my Upline Tami White for making my dream come true in helping me accomplish my goal, “Rising Star”.
