Hello from OnStage Live

Photo of me, Ruthie and Michelle at OnStage Live

We are here in Salt Lake City for OnStage Live. Michelle Montague, Ruthie Burkey and I have been convention roommates for the last 6 years and it is wonderful to be rooming together once again.

OnStage Live is the Stampin’ Up! event where the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog is revealed to demonstrators. It is so exciting to get the new catalog in our hands. We spent last night pouring over the catalog noticing all the little details in the stamp sets and wonderful samples in the catalog and are back at it this morning. You will love this catalog!

Another great thing about Stampin’ Up! events like OnStage Live and OnStage Local is meeting the demonstrators you visit with online. I have known some of my online friends for many years and it is so exciting to see them in person at Stampin’ Up! events.

Now…I would love to have had you here with me in Salt Lake City. All you have to do is to join my team of demonstrators. Some of the advantages for you are:

  • Being able to attend OnStage events and earn incentive trips.
  • Having a network of fellow demonstrators spread across the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
  • Owning your own business where you can set your work hours to mesh with family responsibilities.
  • Being able to determine how much you will earn to give you extra income.
  • Having my warmth and patient support as you build your business.
  • Getting a 20 – 25% discount on Stampin’ Up! supplies and stamps.

If this sounds like something you would like to do or even if you just want to be a demonstrator to get the discount, give me a call and visit my Stampin’ Up! website for more information. I would love to have you join me!

Happy International Women’s Day

Internation Women's Day Logo

Today is a day to honor women world-wide, those who work endlessly at home being the core of the family and those who also work outside the home. The value of a woman is priceless. If she also happens to be a mother, the job is a 24/7 one with little time off even for sickness. If you were to pay a woman for all the various jobs and hours she puts in, her income would be up there with the best paid executives. Unfortunately she doesn’t get paid monetarily well at all.

But…I have a way for women to gain a measure of control over how much they earn. (That is…if they aren’t the boss.) I have an opportunity for women…well…I won’t exclude men either…to earn as much or as little as they want by owning their own paper-crafting business as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator on my team of demonstrators. Here are some benefits:

  • Freedom to choose your working hours and how much you work
  • Freedom to determine for yourself how much profit you will earn. It depends on how many hours you work and how effectively you use your time.
  • Development of great friendships and relationships with fellow demonstrators and customers.
  • My 15 years experience as a demonstrator and cheerful personality to help you develop your business.
  • Having fun while working
  • And finally, getting a discount on product you purchase and having the opportunity to earn trips with Stampin’ Up!

The investment to get started is just $99 for the Starter Kit and until the end of March, you get to choose and additional $30 worth of product over the standard $125. The beautiful thing about Stampin’ Up! is that they value you as a demonstrator whether you are building a growing business or whether you are a demonstrator who is primarily a hobbyist who love getting a discount on Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful products. It is totally your choice and I am delighted to help you no matter what your goals are. For more information, contact me and/or visit my online store. I’m here to answer your questions.

Happy Business Woman Day!

I love owning my own paper-crafting business and being a business woman. I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 14 years and yes I have owned my own business for that long. I still get a thrill when I teach a class or workshop for someone. I still get a little excited when I log on to the demonstrator website to get the latest company news, track my monthly sales, or track the progress of an order, and I still get really excited when I gather with fellow demonstrators at Stampin’ Up! sponsored gatherings for demonstrators.

The term ‘business woman’ most often brings up images of a woman in a suit with a briefcase sitting at a desk in an office or as this woman is doing, having a working lunch. Often, this type business woman works for a corporation where her hours and duties are determined for her.

 

 

 

In contrast, owning my own paper-crafting business gives me:

  • the flexibility to decide for myself how many hours I work each day
  • when I will go to work and when I will have family time
  • the ability to set how much money I earn without having to have someone else’s approval
  • the ability to set my own goals and hold myself accountable for reaching those goals

in other words…being my own boss!

In addition, I get to work with product I love and with others who love being creative. This make work fun!

You to can be a business woman and own your own paper-crafting business for an investment of just $99.  I’d love to have you join me as a demonstrator on my team. I will give you superb support as you develop your business. You don’t have to be particularly crafty at first. I will enjoy teaching you (that is what I do best) and helping you develop your crafting skills as well as your business skills. You will also have the support of Stampin’ Up! and all the training available from them.

Does this sound interesting? Contact me for more information or visit my demonstrator website to learn more.

How Will You Spend It?

Are you one of the thousands of taxpayers who is getting a refund? What are you planning on doing with that refund? Do you have a plan or will it just be put into the general funds and get spent bit by bit until it is gone?

I have a better suggestion! Why not invest a portion of the refund in yourself and start your own paper crafting business. For about $200 of that tax refund you can change your future. Here are some benefits of owning your own business when you join me and my team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators:

  • My focus will be to provide you with the resources and training necessary to build a successful business.
  • Flexibility to work around family commitments since you decide how much you will pay yourself and how much time you will work your business.
  • Tax deductions by owning your own business
  • Wealth of expert training from me. The Stampin’ Up! demonstrator support team is another valuable resource.
  • Long-lasting relationships and friendships with customers and fellow demonstrators.
  • Recognition and ability to win awards for your efforts.

Why I consider my business to be a great gift

Stampin' Up! fun IMG_1245 workshop

My paper crafting business as an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is a great gift for myself and can be for you as well. These photos demonstrate why I feel this way. In each photo, people are gathered together to enjoy each other while creating projects that will bring joy to themselves and others. This gives me such pleasure as I bring them together through my business and teach them how to make cards and home decor items to bring smiles to their faces and to the faces of those who receive the gifts and cards. I also love teaching how to preserve memories through scrapbooking. Creating relationships with my customers and teaching them new ideas energizes me and makes my job so much fun.

Owning your own paper crafting business as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is also a great gift for you. Your pleasure may be in the relationships you create, but it could be in other things. It might be in the extra income you earn to pay for ballet lessons for your child or to pay off school loans or to ease the budget crunch.Since you own your own business, you can determine the amount of money you earn based on your business strategies.

Maybe you get pleasure in being able to travel. Not only can you earn extra money to use for travel, but Stampin’ Up! offers expense paid trips as incentives to earn as you build your business.

Or maybe you stay home with your children but crave adult contact. Owning your own business allows you to get out of the house, earn extra money, and have fun with other adults. Since you own your own business, you can adjust your work schedule to fit in with the family’s needs.

There are many benefits to running your own business. Drop me an email at sue@soggystamper.com with your telephone number, your time zone and the best time for me to call you so we can discuss which benefits meet your needs.
