Origami Owl Lockets Make Great Teacher’s Gifts

My daughter will be attending an academy where she is at school 2 times a week and 3 days are done with me.  The day finally came when we had to meet her teacher and pick up our books.  The morning of the meeting, I said “Would you like to give your teacher a present?”  She said yes.  When I asked her what she would like to give, she said, “Mommy, I think she will like an Origami Owl locket.”  I agreed.  We perused my table setup and asked her to pick out some charms.  I also shared with her what I knew about her teacher from the school’s overview day that took place the day before.  And this is what we came up with:


Her  Origami Owl story:  Newly married (wedding ring) teacher (apple)  this year (2012) and her name starts with an A.  We boxed it up in cute take out box with a handle and enclosed in a red satin fortune cookie pouch.  My daughter shyly gave it to her teacher.  On the way home, my daughter asked why her teacher didn’t open the gift and I told her it is because there were other people around and was busy but I hope she wears it to class for her.  I think she will wear it, don’t you?

Join Origami Owl with Me & Receive Customized Mentorship

We've been O2 Independent Designers and Mentors since January 2012 and we are still growing strong! If you've ever considered joining Origami Owl, I personally invite you to do so, but first, I highly recommend you do a bit of homework and interview for your future Mentor; it's permanent. I invite you to interview me =)

Two main questions to ask yourself before you start the “interview” process:

1. "What is my goal with Origami Owl? A personal discount for myself on the jewelry, or to pay our mortgage month after month?"

Relaying your personal goals to your future Mentor is vital to building a great Mentor-Mentee relationship. This will help you keep focus on your goals and not her goals over your own. I started in this with no reason other than for the personal discount (I'm a tad frugal). A year later, when my goal became paying mortgage, I did just that. For the last 2 years, I have been paying my mortgage month after month. It is work - sales takes work - but it definitely is not impossible. I’d be glad to share with you how I did it.

2. "What are the qualities I would I want from my Mentor? Daily contact or hands off? Do I want someone like me, relatable, and understand where I am coming from, or do I want someone not like me, shake me out of my comfort zone and help me reach new heights?"

I am naturally a reserved, non-pushy, non-confrontational, and family-first woman. If your family is your main focus and 02 is last in priority, I fully support that. I will be hands off.

Come around when you are ready. On the other hand, if you are ready to hustle from the get-go and seek lots of interaction and training with me, tell me! I have daily, weekly, monthly communications set up to do all that you need. I am here for you as little or as much as you need me. Ask your potential Mentor what they have to offer to you if given the privilege of you on their team.

In a nutshell, whatever goals you may be, and the qualities that you seek, find out for yourself if your future Mentor have what you need, and the experience, resources, and capabilities to help you. It is not about who knows the most. If they have an endless desire to grow, learn what they do not know and have a teacher’s heart to lead you where you want to be, they are Mentor-material.

I have an endless array of resources, materials, and tips in marketing, sales and personal development that have helped to make my Origami Owl a viable and profitable business while still remaining family-first.

All that I know, all that I will learn, I promise to share with you. Why? Because ultimately, all that I know, and all that I do, is for you. Connect with me today.
