Went to a zone training recently and got into a HUGE dispute with a zone manager.
Basically we were working on 30 second commercials. Which I totally needed to do. The lady I was working with said she liked my slide. It was a retired piece. She said she wanted it and she would book a show if I gave it to her.
I said I would not. No way. No how. My jewelry is MY jewelry. The zone manager went off. She said there was no piece of jewelry that she would NOT be willing to part with to book a show.
I TOTALLY disagree. The reason I signed up with Lia was because there were pieces that my sister had gotten at a show that I could NEVER get. Even as an advisor. Its the starbucks philosophy. They place a value on their product and sell it a 1000% mark up and we buy into it. We pay $4.50 for a drink that cost $0.30 to make.
I am not saying there arent SOME pieces I have that I would not be willing to give up to book a show. There are. And if the lady was adimant that she wanted a piece that I was NOT willing to give up I would do my best to find it for her. BUT there are pieces that I am not giving up to anyone ever! They are mine. What does it say about me if I place so little value on my jewelry that I am willing to give it up.
BTW... from all this I got my 30 second commercial.
If the lady said she wanted my slide and would book if I gave her the slide I would say something like...
if you like this old thing wait until to see the NEW 2009 spring collections. Let me show you the NEW pieces we've got out right now....
