You might be wondering why I picked Totally Turtles as my team's name. Here's an explanation about that. I love turtles and have about 16 real ones. (I'm always finding more babies in the yard). So when I was coming up with a name for my group of stampers I had to use the theme of turtles. When I created an acronym for it I knew I had a winner! Check it out:
Turtles stands for:
T is for Terrific
U is for Unique
R is for Resourceful
T is for Talented
L is for Lovely
E is for Exceptional
S is for Stampers
Doesn't that sound great! Don't ya'll just want to be turtles now? LOL. See below for some Q and A.
Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Frequently Asked Questions (Borrowed from Angie's website. Thanks Angie!)
Q: What are the minimum sales requirements?
A: You only have to submit $300 in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin' Up! Workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still get your discount and commission.
Q: What if I only want to do this as a hobby. Do I still have to have workshops?
A: Absolutely not!! Stampin' Up! supports the hobby demonstrator just as well as the career demonstrator. You can put in your own order or collect orders from family and friends to equal the $300 a quarter minimum.
Q: Can I be my own Hostess?
A: Yes, you can be your own Hostess anytime you want. You can invite your family and friends into your own home and have a workshop. You would be the Hostess, receiving the Hostess benefits, and you would also be the demonstrator receiving your instant income and commission.
Q: How much does it cost to get started as a Demonstrator?
A: The Standard Starter Kit is only $99 plus tax (shipping is free!). It includes everything you will need to get your business up and running. (valued at $125).
Q: What if I decide that I don't like it once I've started. Will I be penalized if I quit or is there a certain time frame I have to be a demonstrator.
A: You can stop anytime you choose. You simply just stop putting in your minimum sales. Stampin' Up! will not notify you at all with any concerns. But I guarantee you once you get started you won't want to stop!!

Q: Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?

Q: Where will I get my ideas for my workshops?
A: Stampin' Up! has many resources for demonstrators. The Catalog, the SU! website, the monthly Stampin' Success magazine, training videos and Stampin' Discuss and my website. It is OKAY to copy your projects from these sources and use them at your workshops. You do not have to do everything by yourself.
Q: Are there any Stampin' Up! Events that I can attend as a new demonstrator?
A: Yes, almost all of them!! Every year Stampin' Up! has it's annual convention. It will be in Utah in July and is 4 days long. This is the absolute best event ever!! There are also Regional Seminars throughout the country every year! Leadership training is a fabulous event for those at Supervisor level and above.

Q: How do I sign up?
A: Go to http://www.jackiebarfield.stampinup.net/ and click on Join Stampin’ Up!
Q: Do you really love what you do?
A: I absolutely LOVE what I do and I know you will, too. The friends I’ve made as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is an amazing bonus, but I think the best part of being a demo is the way I feel after I stamp a project. The minute I have the stamp and ink in my hand I can feel the stress from the day fade away. Showing others this wonderful hobby and watching them get excited about it makes my day. I wouldn't change a thing.
I hope I have answered some of your questions. I would love to share this Fabulous Business Opportunity with you today!!! Please feel free to contact me!

I hope to grow my team like Mandy has grown hers. I have 10 direct downline right now and I love all of them! Plus I have more Turtles that have joined under those in my direct. They are great friends. They are my creative buddies. They are people I go to when I need sewing tips or want to talk about school, kids or stampin'. They are people that can come to me for any reason, any time. (Except when I'm sleeping. LOL.) I feel so blessed to have them in my life.
