Well as you can see I was awarded my bag representing "Founder's Circle". I was on cloud 9!!!! To achieve this award you have to be receiving an award for being in the top 100 Demonstrators, top 15 Rising Star or top 10 achievers in the performance bonuses which are personal sales and/or promotions in your downline. The one goal I set for myself at the beginning of last year was that I wanted to be a Rising Star. So receiving this bag told me I had a good chance at being in the top 15 Rising Star, but you do not know until they announce it at Awards Night.
Here I am with my new Founder's Bag, all the stamp sets I also won and the nice lady from Stampin' Up! that gave them to me!!! I got four additional stamp sets out of the brand new Fall/Winter Catalog along with the three we got in our Convention Bag. I received these for my personal sales and my first level promotions in my downline.
I was also awarded a "SAM" which is a service account manager. You usually are awarded one when you reach the level of Manager but you are also awarded one if you achieve the incentive trip. Since I am not a manager yet I received one for achieving the incentive trip. That is the Hawaii trip I achieved for my sales. My husband and I will be traveling to Hawaii next March with everyone else that achieved this awesome trip (about 400 demonstrators). It is all paid by Stampin' Up!, our airfare there and back, our room and what other activities they have planned for us. I can't wait!!!!!
I was sooooo super excited!!!!! Believe me waiting for them to announce the names starting at 15 and my name wasn't called I was like "maybe I didn't make it". Then they got to number 1 and the only thing I said (as I was squeezing Kelly's hand) was "what if it isn't me??"
Well it was me!!!!! Here is the picture of 14 of us out of 15 with Shelli.
Here is a picture of my goodies I got. My bag, my notebook (a gift from our SAM's), my roses and my very own first ever piece of Tiffany's jewelry!!!
Yep, the top 5 Rising Stars got a Tiffany's necklace.
And the bag says Tiffany's too!!!!!
Well after Rising Star I thought I was done but nooooo my name was called again!!!!!!! Yep I was in the top 100 Demonstrators of the year too!!!! I was dieing!!!!
#50 Demonstrator of the year!!!!!
