origami owl incentive trip
kaanapali beach, maui
I’m back from an amazing four days in Hawaii on the 2015 Origami Owl Incentive Trip. This was the second year for the incentive trip (last year we visited Cabo San Lucas) and was nothing short of magnificent! This year the trip took a little more elbow grease and drive to earn but was definitely worth every minute spent at Jewelry Bars and events! The requirements this year were :
LEVEL 1 QUALIFIERS* (Earn this trip for one person!) Earn 22,000 points + personally sponsor 3 qualified**
LEVEL 2 QUALIFIERS (Earn this trip for you and a guest!) Earn 30,000 points + personally sponsor 4 qualified**
There were 311 designers who earned the five day, four night trip to the Sheraton Maui Resort on Kaanapali Beach on the island of Maui. The resort had a beautiful private beach and is located right on the black rock. We arrived in Maui on Thursday and were greeted by some awesome Nest team members who spoiled us with some Origami Owl swag. My husband and I spent the afternoon checking out the resort and took a walk to Whalers Village. That evening was a welcome dinner with many members of the executive team including Bella and Chrissy. It was so great because I got to spend time with a few Team Lovely Lockets members and meet some team members who I’ve known virtually for a long time but hadn’t yet met in person. Friday was slated as our excursion day and we had chosen a snorkeling trip but due to rough waters many of the excursions were cancelled and changed. We opted out of a different excision and instead used the day to soak up the sun on the beach and snorkeled right at the black rock. We even met this awesome guy!
Saturday was spent on the road to Hana and it was such an amazing ride! We rented a Jeep and took then entire day — we were able to stop along the way and take in some beautiful views, swim at a waterfall, and explore Wai’anapanapa State Park.
Our last day in Maui was spent on the resort & began with a beautiful Sunrise Service overlooking the ocean. We spent some time snorkeling again at the Black Rock and then enjoyed a team lunch with some of the Team Lovely Lockets members. Chrissy even stopped by our luncheon for a few quick pics!
Our trip ended with a beach side luau where we got to spend time with each other and members of the executive team and receive recognition for all our achievements.
It was definitely the trip of a lifetime & I’m so glad I could share it with 21 members of Team Lovely Lockets! I’m so proud of everyone’s accomplishments and I can’t wait to see even MORE team members earn next year’s incentive trip!
