I’m committed to your success, so here are a few new images that I’ve been working on JUST for you! You are welcome to use them in your online parties, events, on your social media, etc. All I ask is that you don’t modify the images – they are great as they are!
First off, I want to preface this episode by saying that there is NOTHING better than BEING at convention. The ENERGY, Excitement, and soul-infusing desire to set new goals and try new things is something that I can no stress enough! If you couldn’t make it this year, start saving NOW to get there next year! GET there! It’s the best thing that you can do for yourself and your Paparazzi business.
Ok, so let’s jump right in!! To kick things off right, we started with a LIVE band who sang a special song JUST for us! The chorus says “I’m just a girl, changing the world 5 bucks at a time.” If you are listening to the audio version of this podcast, head over to the blog to see the video I took.
Next, our 4 founders were welcomed to the stage to welcome us and get us fired up for the days to come!
Misty was the first of the founders to speak to us and her message was fun, exciting and dance worthy. The gems I took from her were:
If you have passion, a dream or an idea and you work for it, anything is possible.
Life is a series of moments that shape us, change us and help us to grow
Moments require work and effort
the moments attached to your heart and soul means the most
the journey to that moment means the most, not the moment itself
Others won’t see the work behind the moment.
Every room we walk into is an opportunity to turn heads
You have to FIND your moment. You can do this with the parties you have and the people you talk to
Your moment is not going to just fall into your lap. FIND that moment! CAPTURE it. Seize it. And then OWN it. Strut your stuff.
Negative thoughts take away your moments.
Our Platform is jewelry but our message is love.
Next was Ryan Reeve. Ryan shared how a computer chip with just a little memory can still do the same things that bigger chips can do with the right programming and work. He also said that Consistency is KEY! As you work your business consistently, you will continue to grow.
Chani Reeve spoke straight to my heart just like she usually does! The key points I took from her are:
Don’t get so distracted by everything that you miss the things right in front of you.
Focus on what you are doing!
You will get to points in your life that are steep and you feel like you can’t keep going. This is the time you need to push through the most! The sweetest rewards are waiting for you!
“It’s just a bump in the road and you need to keep going.”
Trent Kirby was the last of the Fab-Four to speak to us. He shared the song Try Everything by Shakira. Some of the lyrics from that song are:
“I wanna try everything even though I could fail. I’ll keep on making those new mistakes.”
“I’ve messed up, I lost another fight. I lost to myself again.”
These lyrics speak about trying and trying and not giving up, but also not being afraid to fail. That is what struck me the most about this song!
Trent went on to say that the biggest key to success is another line from the movie, “Well, then I guess I’m going to be the FIRST. I’m going to make the world a better place.”
Believe in yourself no matter what
The difference between winning and losing is who gets back up.
When you believe anything’s possible you do anything to get there
Why you try things the “way there’s done” and it doesn’t work, step back and try to do it a new way. Try something different
Enjoy your journey!
Celebrate the little things and look how far you’ve come
too often you are too focused on the top of the mountain and you don’t celebrate how far you’ve come
keep making mistakes – learn from them
Look in the mirror and see the person you are becoming
Nothing is wrong with messing up! At least you are trying
Success is built on mistakes!
If you didn’t hit your goats, you cares! This is a life-long journey! Learn from your mistakes and keep going on your journey
Negativity is the thing that kills us
You can’t explain the sleepless nights, the stress and the struggles as you build your business
Stay hungry, stay foolish, keep dreaming
The day continued with one more speaker, Tiffani Peterson, but I’m going to save that for the next episode.
Today we arrived at the South Point Casino and after a LONG day in the car, it was a welcome relief! The rooms were so clean and simply stunning! We have a TON of space in our room including a couch, desk, table, HUGE bathroom and an awesome view of the city!
At Check-In we got the royal treatment from the Paparazzi staff and all our friends! It took us a matter of seconds to check in and get our awesome swag bag! This bag was filled with AMAZING gifts for us! Some of them include:
-the swag bag itself (see through pockets, leather….)
-Convention guide and pen
-lanyard and buttons
-and a super cute necklace and bracelet set
Then we went to join in the fun at the Pink Ticket Pajama party! A Pink ticket is one of the first 150 to get purchased, so we were one of the first in line! They give us a few extra perks like access to shopping events early, this pre-convention party and a few other surprises. At the PJ party, we were given Paparazzi slippers, amazing snacks and treats and got to hang out with our friends. There were many selfies taken and much dancing going on. There was also some amazing Karaoke.
After the party, we took the party over to the bowling alley where we took even more selfies, got a chance to chat and now hubby is bowling away the night with our Paparazzi friends. I brought baby back to the room to put her down for the night.
Tomorrow, the fun starts early! If you want a good seat,and you DO want a good seat, you have to stand in line for the doors to open, so I’m going to hit the hay.
Just wait! More amazing things are coming tomorrow!!
