I had the opportunity of meeting and networking with some amazing people at the Bridal Extravaganza of ATL (BEA). This was my first big event so of course, I didn't know what to expect. Luckily I didn't have to do it alone. Some of my amazing team members volunteered to help me. I love leading leaders! You know what Mary Kay Ash once said, "speed of the leader, speed of the gang."
My table display was inspired by all the shabby chic things I already had in storage. I basically laid the foundation of my vision and my rockstar team member, Debbie, stepped in and sprinkled it with her pixie dust. Ok, she poured all of her pixie dust love onto it and made it sparkle and shine! She even brought one of her shabby chic items from home to add that additional touch. I was so pleased with the results.
My superstar red jacket, DeAshley, stepped right in with her giving motherly spirit and assembled all of my business cards with color card samples. She's holding a few in the pic. I totally forgot to do this and she really saved the day. I had a lot of these y'all, eek! De'Ashley was also in charge of my VIP mailing list opt-in. She mingled and interacted with potential clients so well. She nailed it!
The talented Krystle (team member & my photographer) started out walking back to the car with DeAshley because of course, I forgot something again. #SMH! She used her people skills and entered women into our drawing to win a free pampering session & gift card. I mean who doesn't love free stuff?!?! She did this while taking photos of the event in between sessions. Talk about a great multitasker!
I then began networking with potential clients, offering product knowledge, giving out free hand massages with our fabulous Satin Hands Set, and booking appointments right on the spot. A little advice, never forget your datebook. I did! My phone did the job, but it would've been a lot smoother if I had my handy dandy datebook.
I had one fabulous bride who came over and said, "OMG, I have to demo your microdermabrasion set. Please tell me you have it." I know what y'all are thinking, she forgot that too! Hallelujah, I didn't.... #TYJ! We began to demo the product on the back of her hand and compared it with her other hand to see the difference. Instant results! Yay!
She left happy and no longer puzzled about one of my #1 best sellers. She immediately asked for a card and we exchanged info. I was happy because I was able to solve an issue and turn it into knowledge.
Isn't she a beauty? She's going to make one lucky man proud next year on their big day! This amazing woman was the winner of my door prize! She took home a beautiful Limited Edition Into The Garden floral compact from our limited edition spring collection! This floral pink palette includes four enchanting eye colors, a cute little applicator, and three lip colors that are not sticky! I fell in love with this collection inspired by Brazilian fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi. I still have a few left, and they are now half off! Contact Me!
So how do you end a prosperous day of work? With wedding cake of course! I wish I remembered the bakery so I could give them a shout out. It was pretty tasty! I had such a great time at my first BIG wedding event. I hope this inspires you to step out of your comfort zone and just do it.
Don't forget to show me some love by tapping the heart <3
As always BEE great,
