Time for another Video!

Hello GREAT stampers!  Tonight I am super excited to share another video of more burning questions.  Again, please keep in mind that these are just my personal opinions and experience.  I don't claim to be any type of coach.  I do however LOVE to share with you and my customers! So here are the videos for today.  I hope they can help you with your business.




I am also excited because my stamp room is ALMOST complete.  I just have a few last details and it's READY! It seems like it's taken forever but it wasn't the only room that needed help in this house.  In fact, over the weekend I finished Alexis room and we are both so excited about it.  She is only 7 and really wanted a big girl room.  The theme we went with is Rock n Roll.  SO up my Alley.  It really looks fun and we put up lots of Decor' Elements Guitars which are now retired.  They look fantastic on the wall and I really love how awesome our Decor' Elements go on so easy.  Alexis thinks it looks cool and that is all that matters.   I'll get some pictures for you. 

Tonight's creative piece is something I received in the mail and I have to share it.  I call this VERY happy mail!!!  This beautiful card was made from my downline Mary.  I just love her and LOVE this creation.  Thank you Mary!

  1. Hi Kimberly,
    You don't know how much this is helping me right now and I want to thank you so much.  If SU allow me to stay in then I am going to work my hardest to make this business of mine thrive.  If not, then I am going to come back in the alloted time and create a successful business with or without an upline lol.  I don't want an upline to tell me how to run my business as such but I would like it if my business upline would occasionally be available to ask questions of and in saying that I think as you said we are among great stamping sistahs so I can ask a whole lot of girls hehehehe.
    Thanks so much Kimberly this is a great series and I am really enjoying it and I cannot wait to see a tour of your new fabulous coloured craft room/office.
    Warm regards

  2. Hi Kimberly,
    Thank you sooo much for the videos you've been sharing the past two days. You are so inspiring and motivating! I've always loved visiting your blog — your projects are amazing and it is always entertaining to read.
    I hope you have the fastest rebuild of your business ever… and I'm definitely going to try some of your ideas — I think they are fantastic and just the little "shove" I need.
    Thanks again so much!

  3. Hi Kimberley, I can't believe that I have been lurking on your blog for 4 years – Oh My Gosh, I remember your move from Florida to Colorado – where has that time gone?? 
    I have just watched your videos and have found them to be very motivating.  My question to you relates to your workshops – do you travel or do people come to you? 
    Thanks & looking forward to tomorrow's video

  4. Hi Kimberly!  Thanks so much for the video series – You're very inspiring!  I wanted to know if handing out packets in Starbucks (or Target or where ever) is considered soliciting and if you've every been asked not to do that in a store?  That would be my concern 🙂

  5. Hi Kimberly! Just wanted to say "THANK YOU" for your upbeat and inspiring videos. I just found your blog 3 or 4 days ago and I have been checking in everyday! It was perfect timing for me to find your videos! However, I do have a question for you. I am a full time school teacher and I have been selling Stampin' Up for 2 years. Do you have any suggestions for having a full time job AND making my Stampin' Up business more successful?? I am definitely looking forward to more of your videos! I wish there was one (or two) EVERYDAY! 🙂

  6. Hi Kimberly!  Thank you for sharing all of this nitty gritty information.  I am so grateful for the time you have taken and you have really inspired me to incorporate some of these things into my business.  Can't wait for the next video!  Thank you again.

  7. I love that you are doing these videos.  I can't wait until the next one…its like the night before Christmas waiting for it!    I am moving in 10 days and so I am drinking in everything you are telling us.  I also am one of those shy people so I do not feel comfortable approaching people or even doing workshops, but I know both are necessary to build my business.  You are inspiring me….I placed an order for mini catalogs & lg. cello bags!  Now I can't wait to see your daughter's room since I want to do my kids rooms really special too.  Thanks again – Jacki

  8. First of all, thank you for sending me a little private message, it made me feel really good.  Secondly, I love your sincerity about this business and your big heart…the Lord sure did give you a lot of talents (and beauty) and I know he's really happy you are putting them to good use. 
    Here's my very first question:  how do you self-motivate yourself…every …single…day? what helps you keep that positive attitude…every…single …day?  Do you have any tools or things that help you with this self motivation?
    Second question, do you have a planner with all the different things you need to do that day for your business? 
    P.S.  I am going to buy that book you suggested real soon…you know, I need to pump myself up before Jan 2011 when things will be in full swing again.
    Sending you lots of virtual hugs!!!

  9. I'm loving your video series, Kimberly!  Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and suggestions.  It's like having a virtual mentor!  I want to be on that Top 100 list someday, and your words are so encouraging.  Good luck settling into your new home and rebuilding your business.  And, when you have set-backs in the challenging days ahead, remember how much your experience, and your willingness to share it, is helping a multitude of up-and-coming demos on their stamping journey.  We appreciate you!

  10. Thank you, Kimberly, for taking the time to do these videos.  They are very helpful and down-to-earth.  I think many of us are "shy" types and don't feel comfortable putting ourselves "out there" for others to examine.  What exactly do you say when you are trying to talk to someone new…assuming that they did not come up and notice you first (like at Starbuck's or wherever)?  I am probably the age of your mother, so I can't really hope someone will notice me based on the "cuteness" factor!  Do you have an "opening  statement" of some sort that will lead into giving them a little packet (video1, part 1)?  I have enjoyed your blog for quite some time and do occasionally leave you a comment.  Thanks for doing such a good job…consistently!

  11. Your videos are great and you are such an inspiration!  I truly am so excited to be a demonstrator some day!  Your blog and your successes are such a motivating factor for me.  Thank you so much!!!

  12. Hi Kimberly! Your videos are just wonderful…thank you so much for taking the time while still settling into your new home! Two quick comments:
    First, THANK YOU for acknowledging the power and delight of being an in-person demonstrator! This is how I run my business and there are times I feel like I am supposed to be online, but I don't enjoy that! To me, stamping with friends is like a modern-day quilting bee and a great way for women to take time for themselves.
    Second, I am so glad you don't describe yourself as a "coach". I don't believe we need coaches, especially when we can benefit from all the real life advice available from actual demonstrators! Why pay a coach when all those fees could be re-invested in your own business? Thank you for letting demos know that you can pay someone else lots of money to tell you what you already know, but the demo herself has to go DO it! You are proof that it works, and your inspiration is wonderful!
    Have fun rebuilding and meeting new people!

  13. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  After I watched your first video's, I was so pumped!  I went up to my office and made little treat holders that my business cards fit perfectly in!  I didn't go to Starbuck's, but it was Coast Guard Day at the base and there were tons of military wives, local vendors, and clubs!  I passed all of my little treats out and then some!  I was SO excited that I was able to confidently share something I love!  My upline moved, but my second level upline is Lisa Freeman who has done an amazing job building my self esteem and confidence!  She emailed me your video's and what can I say, except now I have 2 AMAZING women to look up to for inspiration!  I really like the way you explain things…Thanks a million!

  14. love these … I can't wait for more…I keep re watching these …and I can hardly stand waiting for a day in the life of you …..

  15. Kimberly,
    You are so sweet to share all of this with us!  I agree full-heartedly with everything you are saying and it's re-energizing me!  Like another comment said, I would also like to know how you start the conversations with strangers and lead it into Stampin' Up!?  Also, how do you motivate and work with your downline.  I have a downline of 15, but none are business builders and I NEED some!!!!    🙂
    Thanks again!

  16. Kimberly,
    Thank you so much for sharing. I am at a time of rebuilding (moving from hobby to business, for real this time) and I've found your videos so motivating. I am responsible for my success (or lack there of) and am the only one who can make my dreams come true.  Thank you for the friendly kick-in-the-pants I needed 🙂

  17. Kimberly, I'm sorry but I have to take issue with you on something.  You have said a few times that you are not a "coach".  Well, I am a coach (not a business coach but a coach/coach), a motivator.  I know coaches.  I've been around coaches.  You, wonderful lady, are a coach!  You just haven't figured it out yet. 8^)
    Your videos are wonderful and I can't wait for the next one.  I am a returning demonstrator after life sidelined me for a little over a year.  With no family in town and a very small circle of crafty friends I need creative ideas of how and where to reach new customers.  This series is a wonderful idea and you're doing a beautiful job with it.  Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences and encourage the rest of us.  I'm looking forward to following your progress.

  18. Kim, Thank you so much for doing these videos. I have been a SU Demo for almost 3 years & have recently decided that I want to make it as successful as I possibly can. For the last few months (ok actually since I joined) I have complained that my upline has never been available for me. Not to ask or answer questions, not for support nothing. After listening to your videos I know that I can do it on my own. That I don't need an upline to be successful in this business. So far this month I have over $800 in sales. That is the most I have ever had. Thank you for giving me a fun & motivational place to go. I look forward to watching your other videos & followig your blog. Congrats on being #1 in Sales. With your attitude I can easily understand how you got there.

  19. Thanks for all the great tips even for the hobby demo that just needs a few customers!!  I have a question about the card that you posted.  What color is that ribbon?  It looks grey but as far as i can tell we don't sell grey ribbon? thanks!!!
