Uplines: Send a Valentine to Your Downline from Her Business
Here's a fun idea for Valentine's Day for your team. Send Valentine cards to your downline, but write it from their businesses.
If your downline's business was a person, it would probably be one of the people she spends the most time with. It would certainly be someone she has a love-hate relationship with. Let her business remind her of the love side of the relationship.
Write the message as if her business is a person she's dating and match the tone to the level of the relationship. So if it's new, keep it light and airy but hopeful for a future. If the relationship is getting serious (i.e. she is working towards leadership), make the message a little more serious.
Your message just needs to be three sentences, and the good news is that one of them can be Happy Valentine's Day.
Here are prompts to help you for the other two sentences:
- a compliment
- hope or a wish for the future
- the journey they've taken
- challenge they've overcome
Examples of what it looks like for a new business relationship:
Happy Valentine's Day! I'm so glad that we found each other, and I hope you're having as much fun getting to know me as I am getting to know you. I can't wait to see where we go together.
So, we've been hanging around each other for a while now, and I'd love it if you'd be my Valentine. I promise to always be there for you, and I'll drop everything whenever you want to spend time with me.
Examples of messages for an established relationship:
Happy Valentine's Day. I love us. I love how much we've grown together and how you bring out the best in me. I can't wait to walk across stage together.
My Valentine gift to you this year is a promise. I promise that if you spend time with me, I'll do everything I can to take you on the incentive trip. Imagine the fun we'll have there and how much stronger we'll be working towards it.
Your downline will probably figure out that you're the one who wrote it, but it will still be fun for her. And who knows, it might help her fall a little bit more in love with her business.
Let me know if you need help.
Celebrate every day,
