I have potential Origami Owl designers asking “Are you accepting new designers on your team?” and “Can you be my Mentor?” And my answer is, “Why, yes and yes =)
But don’t just take my word for it! As with anything, first, get to know me as I’d like to get to know you. Joining Origami Owl is a huge deal. Choosing who you join with (your Mentor) is even a bigger deal!
It isn’t like we’re getting married or anything, or is it? 😉 Actually, once you have chosen a Mentor, you are together forever for your entire* Origami Owl life! So choose wisely or forever hold your piece.
So then, where do we go from here?
STEP 1: See if you like me. Take a look at my postings on my Facebook Page, and watch some videos on my YouTube Channel. You will get a feel if I am the type of person that can – not only be your Mentor – but be someone you can easily connect and talk to.
STEP 2: Get a hold of me! There are so many ways to get a hold of me, pick one!
Call or Text: 858-243-4568
Snail Mail: PO Box 27264, San Diego, CA 92198
STEP 3: Choose 1 of the following:
For whatever reason, you didn’t like me. (Totally fine. Not everyone is for everyone). At this point, you would continue your search for another Mentor. Research for a Mentor. I have provided tips on how to do that at http://www.locketsandcharms.com/what-is-a-mentor-and-how-do-i-choose-one-for-my-origami-owl-independent-designer-business/. There are so many amazing Independent Designers in this company that would love to have you. You simply have to love them back. I would be even glad to help you find your perfect match – and no, I don’t recommend based on my benefit and only the amazing ones inside my team. I seriously want you to find your perfect Mentor. There are waaaaay too many people in this world who don’t like who they work with and your Origami Owl Mentor should not have to be one of them too =) Simply do some due diligence and you are all good.
You tell me, “I choose you Pikachu!” and we are off to soar in high places! We reconnect, we do a more in-depth interview of each other to reveal your dreams and goals and expectations. I give you a bit of a run down of how I work and what I do (http://www.locketsandcharms.com/what-does-jennylou-raya-origami-owl-independent-designer-do-for-her-team/ ) and if you are still liking me after all that, and still want to join with me, then I encourage you to Join Our Team Haute Parliament.
STEP 4: Get Ready to take action. Once you are registered as one of my Independent Designers, fear not, for you will hear from me again and again and again. Don’t worry, I won’t hound you but I do stay consistent in staying true to my promise and what I have told you I will do for you. I will not be that one you sing up with and never hear from again 😉 I send out a ‘Welcome to the Team’ email at first site, Team Tuesday emails every other week or so will follow that contain marketing tips and words that I hope will inspire you to learn and grow. I will then, send out invites to my private Origami Owl FB groups for those that are on FB. But for those not online, no worries; I still do random phone calls and messages of encouragement, “greeting/hello” cards, offers to train you over the phone or face to face to those who have chosen to join with me. Some trainings are done via email that say on the bottom, “After you have read this, please let me know so that I may send you the next one.” And even If you don’t ever want to connect, know that you will still reap the benefits from being part of the team.
*** So that is it…that is how you Join Our Team Haute Parliament., Mentor of Team Haute Parliament ID #1186. ***
Remember, just as companies interview people before considering them for the job, interview for your future mentor because they will be working for you and with you. Origami Owl pays Mentors overrides for mentoring, so why not get a good one on their dime? Get on the phone or grab a cup of coffee with potential mentors and see if you two jive. You may jive with someone across the nation more than the one in your own home town!
Not ready to join yet? Totally fine, Let me know if I interest you in any bit and I would love to add you to my ‘Team Haute Parliament Q & A,’ Facebook Group, a place were those not sure about o2 but would like to stick around can gather and ask their questions.
Yes, it’s true in general…
But remember…. if you’re like me who waited 2 months before joining, you will always be wishing you have joined right away.
Because you did start today!
* Origami Owl will not change your Mentor to someone else after 10 days of being with Origami Owl – unless for extreme circumstances. Please see Policies and Procedures for details. You not liking him or her is not enough reason for Origami Owl to change you from your Mentor to anotheer. So, choose wisely 🙂
Mentor ID# 1186
