reflecting on national convention 2014
the O2 experience
I’ve been cleaning my office this week…. Let me rephrase that – I’ve been searching for my desk this week and came across my goodies from this year’s national convention. The more I looked through all the freebies, amazing training modules, photos and swag – I can’t believe how quickly the weekend went but the memories and knowledge will last through the year and well beyond! If you have never attended a national convention, you need to make it your goal to join us next year for the O2 Experience in Chicago! If you’ve been to another company’s convention, you still need to join us and experience it the O2 way! The weekend was filled with product reveals, amazing guest speakers, training and breakout sessions facilitated by our amazing field leaders and employees of the Nest, a tour of the warehouse, lots of photo opps, dancing, crying (good crying!) and the bonding and love that only Origami Owl designers can understand!
I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from that time our time Phoenix!

so happy my husband and co-designer was able to experience this year with me!

Directors were invited to a luncheon on Thursday which included guest speaker Rita Davenport – who was absolutely hilarious and provided us with so many great life and business tips! Senior Directors were also surprised with giant heart cutouts recognizing each of us (mine is now hanging in my office wall to scare away the critters!)
friday night team celebration
I held a team dinner/celebration on Friday night at Majerle’s Sports Grill in downtown. We had an amazing time – even with a haboob outside! There was lots of great food, a DJ, dancing, a photobooth by Clear Choice, even a magician. More than anything though, I loved being able to spend time alongside the amazing women and men of Team Lovely Lockets! Check out some of the fun photos from that night – many taken by an amazing photographer from Dream Photography Studio.

A new feature at this year’s convention was the recognition room – a room dedicated to spotlighting those designers and leaders who shined throughout the last year! We even got a sneak peek at the new recognition charms that are being awarded to designers beginning this month!
So proud to have accepted the #8 Senior Director award for our team – as well as being a member of the $1 million dollar parliament for the second year in a row! Way to go Team Lovely Lockets!
One of my favorite pictures of the week – this is the amount of commiss
ions that have been paid out to O2 designers in the last 12 months! That’s pretty incredible if you ask me!
Such an amazing weekend and what an impact the O2 experience has had on my personal business! It’s definitely an experience you won’t want to miss!
