If you don't go to conference, you'll miss out on the time of your life. It's a special kind of fun. The kind that causes you to laugh and cry. The kind that transforms you and your business.
Send this card to everyone who has FOMO (fear of missing out), the teammate who comes to every meeting and anyone who you're not quite sure which card to send.
Example of what to write: Conference is hands down the best investment you'll make in your business. You'll come home motivated and trained and have everything you need to take your business to the next level. I can't wait to be there with you.
When you go to conference, you'll get tools to build your business big. Make your business a fine-tuned, turbo-boosted machine. The tools will come from the home office and speakers. They'll also come from sharing at lunch or late nights in hotel rooms.
Send this card to anyone who is on a mission to build her business big, to someone who needs help getting organized and to the teammate who carries around a notebook of ideas.
Example of what to write: Of course you'll get tools and training from our company, and you don't have to go to conference to get those. But some of the best tools are the ones that are shared from other teams, and you'll be able to talk to the creators of them at conference. Your business is going to grow so quickly when you have a fully-loaded toolbox.
Possibly the best reason not to miss conference is the opportunity to hang with your tribe, your squad, your peeps. June 25 2017
Possibly the best reason not to miss conference is the opportunity to hang with your tribe, your squad, your peeps. It's a sisterhood that defines BFF. You're going to form close, lifelong relationships with teammates and peers. Going to conference with strengthen those relationships. Plus you're going to form bonds with people you never would have met otherwise and might only see at national company events.
Send this card to your people-focused teammates, social butterflies and the ones who are active on social media.
Example of what to write: I don't know how or why, but something special happens at conference. You are going to make life-long friendships with people from all over the country. You might even meet your next BFF or pacing partner.
One of the perks of going to conference is getting to hobnob with the home office. Maybe, just maybe, someone will let a secret slip. Sometimes the home office staff seem like celebrities because you see their picture in company newsletters and you hear their voices on conference calls and webinars. It is exciting to meet them in real life.
Send this card to anyone who subscribes to magazines like People or who use a lot of social media. They will be starstruck.
Example of what to write: We'll have lots of opportunities to chat with the home office staff. It's fun to put faces with names and you'll get real answers to all your questions. Plus you'll be able to take a selfie with the founder.
A good reason to go to conference is that someone else will cook and make your bed. Mundane details will be handled so that you can focus on your business.
Send this card to anyone who is a caregiver of her family, someone who has difficult time multi-tasking (but don't tell her that's why you picked this card) and the team member who likes (or longs) to be pampered.
Example of what to write: Imagine having little fairies and assistants all around you so that all you have to think about is how you are going to grow your business. Imagine how much you'll be able accomplish. Give yourself and your business a few days of uninterrupted focus.
Lady Boss Conference 6
One of the most exciting reasons to go to conference is new product releases! It will blow your mind. You don't have to go to conference to find out what is being released because you can probably look on social media and see it practically in real time. But I've been to conferences where the applause and cheering was so loud it shook the conference center, and you don't get to experience that on social media. Plus you'll get training right away on the product, you'll get to touch it and you just might get to take it home with you.
Send this card to anyone who is product motivated. Your new teammates probably fall into this category. You can also send it to people who have FOMO (fear of missing out) and the collectors because there might be some limited edition products available.
Example of what to write: You know those reality shows where they show the person the make-over of their house and the people lose their mind? That's what the product reveals are like. You are going to want to be there for that.
Conference is the best place for inspiration and motivation. It's going to be one aha moment after another. You'll be inspired from the failure-to-success stories, the one-last-shot stories, the steady-eddie stories and the quick-rise-to-the-top stories. You'll be motivated by the incentives, new products and programs and fun.
Send this card to the team members who love quotes, who are motivated by carrots and who need a little boost.
Example of what to write: Words can't express how you are going to feel when you come home from conference. Your brain is going to light up and your heart is going to be full. You don't want to miss this.
Lady Boss Conference 4
Conference is more than business meetings. It's a getaway that is also a tax write-off. June 20 2017
Conference is more than business meetings. It's a getaway that is also a tax write-off, and it's totally legit.
If your national conference is in the same city as your company's home office, it will start to feel like your second hometown because you'll visit it every year. If it is in a different city each year, you'll not only get to experience everything the conference has to offer, but you'll also get to explore something new. And the whole thing--transportation, hotel, conference fees, food--is a tax write-off (check with your official tax guy to be sure).
Send this card to your teammates who need a getaway, the ones who like to try something new and the ones who are on track for your company's trip.
Sample of what to write: Pack your bags and let's go on a workcation. We'll feed our minds and rest our souls and come back re-energized.
Go to conference to get . . . tips from the top. June 20 2017
Go to conference to get . . . tips from the top. The top performers started exactly where you did. The will share everything they know so that you can grow.
Send this card to your training junkies, gals who are on every conference call and come to every meeting, people who want clear action steps and ones who love to try new things. This is also a good card to send to your peeps who think they know more than you (which they might) because you want someone else to tell them what you've been telling them.
Sample of what to write: The best of the best train at conference. We're going to get to hear the tried and true tricks not only from the speakers, but also by eavesdropping while standing in line. You aren't going to miss anything. Register soon and prepare your brain for all the good stuff.
A top reason you need to go to conference . . . giveaways, goodie bags & gifts! Bring an extra suitcase! You are going to be spoiled!
Send this card to everyone who likes free stuff. Okay, that is everyone, but specifically team mates who joined your company because the kit was a great deal, wear company SWAG all the time, has a love language of gifts, likes anything exclusive or limited-edition or has to have everything.
Sample of what to write: Remember how exciting it was to open your kit? That's what conference is like except that it happens again and again all weekend. We are going to be showered with so many presents and goodies that it will feel like our best birthday ever (and we don't even have to turn a year older). I want to open presents with you. I hope you'll come to conference this year.

Our Debut at the National Stationery Show May 20 2016
We're back from the National Stationery Show in New York City. It was our first trade show, and we learned a lot, had a great time, met lots of wonderful people and partnered with retailers who will be carrying our stuff.
We packed everything up in 4 suitcases each weighing in at 50 pounds, and then we dragged those suitcases up and down 35th Street. It took 2 days to set up the booth and only 30 minutes to take it down. We bought the bookshelf at K-Mart which was across the street from our hotel (Here's a tip for you: if you pre-order and pick it up at the store, you might save as much as 20%. The bookshelf was $39 on the website and $59 in the store). Tad made the tables on site because he's handy like that. And Lauren's college roommate is living in Brooklyn and saved us her empty wine bottles for our Wine About It display.
The Wine About It labels got the most attention, but you'll be seeing all the cards in stores too. We got great feedback on making some adjustments to our packaging and on new products that we're looking forward to creating this summer.
Cheers to a fantastic experience, new friends, a great city and of course to celebrating every day.
