Don't you just LOVE a good lesson....

....especially if it's the OTHER person that is being taught that lesson??? Oh, man, that confused even me! HA!! Let me explain. I am a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I lost a potential recruit this weekend because I didn't follow up with her. She emailed me this morning and said that she had decided to join SU (UNDER SOMEONE ELSE!) so she could get the benefits since she wanted so many of the wonderful items that we sell. Oh, my! I had just "assumed" she could not afford to be a demonstrator and didn't offer her that chance! LESSON LEARNED. Everyone (no matter who or where!) deserves that chance. As my wonderful upline, Kathy, said, There will be others - live and learn. OUCH!!!

So, I pick myself up, dust myself off, dry my eyes, and promise myself that all my customers shall hear me talk about this wonderful company and have a chance to join!

Don't let this happen to you. But if it has, please let me know how you handled it.

Best to all of you!


  1. Good lesson to remember and an innocent mistake decided from personal feelings that happens to many people. Your upline is a great person to help you understand; someone you can model yourself and emulate your future business actions and decisions in the world of SU.
    Remember this one bit of my opinion, everything happens for a reason. Just be patient with yourself and especially be kind to yourself.
    Your Friend,

  2. A good salesperson isn't made in a day or a month. The best one I ever worked with was the most diligent communicator in the world. He simply kept asking and kept after the client. It's not the end of the world, goofy.
