My upline and dear friend, Beckie, came to visit last week and she had a lot of great ideas about me signing up. To sweeten the deal, there is a special for past demonstrators to rejoin for only $35.00!! Now I have a decision to make. Do I want to be a demo again?
I'm just not sure. There are many things I love out Stampin' Up! The main thing that I miss is the whole social aspect. I miss getting together with my fellow demos and with customers at workshops and at stamp camps. I also miss the big Stampin' Up! events like Leadership Conference and Convention. I really miss the sound of the UPS driver pulling up to my house with new stamps! I live on a corner and that darn UPS truck is in my neighborhood nearly every day, but he never stops here anymore. ; (
There are also a few things that I haven't missed about SU! I haven't missed worrying about making my quarterly sales quota. I haven't missed leaving my family in the evenings to go to a workshop. I haven't missed driving myself crazy trying to come up with new a fabulous make-n-takes, or card swaps. I haven't missed telling my kids I can't do something for them because I am getting ready for a workshop or stamp camp. And mostly, I haven't missed finding new customers and talking people into having workshops or buying stamps.
So there is my conundrum. Do I? or don't I? I'm open to opinions here, so feel free to leave a comment with your ever so humble opinion (and Beckie, I already know yours!). I have another week or so before I have to make my final decision. I will keep you posted.
