THE WAIT IS OVER!! AS OF SEPTEMBER 5, 2013, ORIGAMI OWL HAS OPENED THE GATES! Learn more at: http://www.locketsandcharms.com/origami-owl-wait-list-is-now-over-video-how-to-join-with-a-mentor/
UPDATE May 2013:
There is no word on when the next wave will be. Origami Owl has grown even more in demand via those wanting to represent the company’s products and as gifts for Mother’s Day and every day. To help ensure that The Nest is able to support new Independent Designers and customers, current designers in waiting (DIW) will have to wait a little bit longer. Do not see this as a bad thing. This is for the better. It is best when a DIW come in and tell their friends and family about their new business, and have all the backings one would expect from who they paired with to represent. You will not only have an amazing platform and support in your new business later, but also have the confidence that you are providing the most beautiful lockets and charms found anywhere else.
Keep checking your spot on the waitlst through here: http://www.origamiowl.com/tools/diw-placement.cfm.
Consider doing the following 5 things while you are a DIW:
1. Share with friends and family that you are a DIW. What you do today comes to full fruition 30-60 days from now. Start building the foundation today. Your kit arriving is not the foundation of your business. What you do before it arrives is.
2. Host a virtual/catalog party. This lets people know of your future business and gets them thinking of joining with you and buying from you in the future. As a Host, you earn free jewelry for yourself and your future display.
3. Open up a separate checking account for your Origami Owl transactions. This will help you keep better track of what you are earning and spending. It best to avoid commingling it with your family’s personal bank account. Much easier come tax time too.
4. Look for a Mentor AND Train with your Mentor.
5. Nothing passes more time better than a little shopping. Build your table setup. Visit places like Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Ross, and places like it in search of owls and turquoise.
UPDATE April 2013:
DIW Wave Update – Happening April 16, 2013. Origami Owl will be sending 1,000 invitations out to Designers in Waiting. The last buzz online is that there are over 10,000 Designers on the waitlist. At this point, I do not know how long the wait is. I had ladies that came in a few months ago and had only a couple of weeks wait and I have ladies right now still a DIW for about a month. In a nutshell, the wait is simply based on how many signed up before you and how may The Nest are letting in. So get in line and sign up already. It is free and you can always ignore/decline the invitation to represent.

UPDATE March 26, 2013 :
DIW Wave Update – Happening Thursday
We are excited to announce that we will be inviting 1,000 Designers In Waiting to join the O2 family on Thursday March 28th. These Designers In Waiting will receive their customized invitation link via email on Thursday, March 28th and that link will be valid through Monday, April 1st.
**UPDATE September 17, 2012: Welcome NEW Origami Owl Designers! Although the Origami Owl waitlist is growing, Thursday, January 3rd will be the next release date for our Designers in Waiting (DIW).
Wave 14 and welcome Designers in Waiting with numbers 6026 through 6775 on Tuesday, September 18th!!! These Designers in Waiting will receive their customized sign up link via email tomorrow, September the 18th. These links are valid through Friday, September 21st. Look for details on wave 15 next Monday, September 24
The waves will continue to open up. This is so exciting! Before, they were only letting between 250 – 500 Origami Owl Designers per wave or a given week.
So the burning question you might have… “How long is the waitlist?”
September 17, 2012
I personally do not know. The waitlist did start at #1 and basing it on the statement above, the number of people who signed up can be past 7,000 people at this point.
“How long does it take to get off the waitlist?” Apologies again, we do not know that. BUT what I do know is this:
The longest wait is over – the period between March 15 and when they started rolling out the waves for new Designers to join, July, was it? Now, every week, they are letting Designers join.
There is so much to do while you wait. The Nest or your future Mentor will provide you lists of things you CAN and CAN’T DO while you are waiting. Believe me – there is plenty to do and you’d want to do, so once you get that kit, all you have to do is fulfill your friends’ and family’s excitement, orders, and reel in the sales.
If you skip out on these things while you wait, you are not maximizing the potential to its fullest. Didn’t open up a separate checking account or an email for your new business? Didn’t get on the weekly company trainings available to you? Instead of hitting the ground running, you are confused on what you are to do first. Of course there is nothing better than hands-on and actual on-the-job training but being familiar with the Origami Owl systems and trainings would really help your business soar.
Did I mention, that you can even direct others to the waitlist and they can sign with you later? Yes they can!
You can join now or you can join later. Join the wait list and your number will eventually come up. You get an email, you have 3 days to sign up. If you don’t, that’s ok. If you do, your kit gets shipped out. If your number passed and later you decide you want to do it, simply contact home office and you will be let in at the next wave. The simple – no obligation – and one heck of an opportunity to sell jewelry.
If you don’t already have a Mentor and would like to work with me and even join my team, let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and signing up on the waitlist. Learn more about the Origami Owl Opportunity here http://locketsandcharms.origamiowl.com/join/how-it-works/
