My love language is quality time, definitely not gift giving. I'm learning to be a thoughtful gift giver, but it's tough sometimes! Being an essential oil distributor gives me an interesting perspective on gift giving, though, and I think it is making me a better and more creative gift giver and donation maker.
I recently had the opportunity to give to an auction to benefit a local family who needs some extra support after an unexpected health crisis. I thought I would gift a cute basket of oils and be done with it. Then there was no basket I liked, And just a few oils seemed like a very tiny gift, which may not draw the biggest bid. And on and on... Then I had a light bulb moment! The three oils were all citrus oils and would be delicious in water. So I packaged them up in some darling cellophane and , complete with some recommended usage cards that I whipped up (just in case this gift goes to someone who has never heard of essential oils). I topped it off with some all natural instant , and a cute bundle of oily cards, and off goes one of my favorite gifts I have ever given. I just hope the person who bids on it loves it as much as I do!
Giving a gift with the other person's wants in mind, without knowing who it's going to can be hard to figure out! I feel like this gift fills a need for someone I may not even know, which has been really fun!
Thanks for reading and happy gift giving!
Congratulations on signing up a new member to your team! I know the feeling... It's wonderful to be sharing products with people that you never feel guilty about sharing. These products are worth buying! And now, someone else knows it! How are you going to treat this new member? Like they've won the lottery, or like you have? Honestly, you both have, but being generous, sharing, and kind will always pay off in the end. So here's the six million dollar question: How do you welcome new members to your team?
First, make sure you have asked them if they are interested in building a business, or if they're only in it for the products. You will be able to meet their needs in a much better way if you are giving them exactly the information they want.
For every new member I sign up, I try to send a small packet in the mail with some basic information, and a small gift. Each person, whether they are a business builder or personal user, receives:
Streamline This Process
Lately, I have been finding it very difficult to make it to the post office, and to get these in the mail! I have a mental block when it comes to the post office, and just in case you are having the same trouble as me, here's another way to get your new team member a great little surprise in the mail.
