Why Not?

I was inspired at Leadership to do what I love the most -- to share with my fellow demonstrators. At two recent group meetings, I spoke in front of everyone about sharing the Stampin' Up! opportunity. I was excited to help inspire demonstrators to do something that many of them have never done before: to help their own friends enjoy the same perks they get as demonstrators. (Isn't kind of selfish NOT to share something you love with the people you love?)

I think the biggest hang-up many stampers have about signing up to be a demonstrator is that they are not interested in starting a business. To put it simply: most demonstrators don't join for the "business". I know I didn't. I signed up almost 10 years ago because I wanted a discount on everything I was already buying! I think most of us sign up "for the discount". So if you're not interested in starting a "business", that's okay! There's so much more to being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator than building a business!

Why I Love Being a Demonstrator:
  • I love making new friends who love the same thing I do!
  • I love taking road trips with friends to stamping events!
  • I LOVE getting free stamps!
  • I love being the first to see new things! (I love sneak peeks -- like the card above! More details on this technique to come tomorrow!)
  • I love having a social outlet with grown-ups (this is huge for me since I am home with the kids all day!)
  • I love making extra money to pay family bills -- like the mortgage and home insurance!
  • I love getting the demonstrator magazine and learning new techniques!
  • I love sharing ideas with other demonstrator, participating in card swaps, and inspiring each other to try new things!
  • I love having an excuse to do something I love! (And being able to write off all my "toys" as a business expense!)
If you would enjoy these same things -- or any of the other perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I hope you'll consider giving it a try!

Here's my group of Ju-bilant Stampers who attended Leadership Conference in San Antonio with me in January. (I'm on the far right.) I love taking trips with my demonstrator friends and look forward to attending Convention in Salt Lake City this July. Want to join us?
