Leadership 2012 - Day 2

The theme at Stampin' Up! Leadership 2012 in San Antonio is 'My Way', and today we really figured out what that meant.  It's not a 'my way or the highway' kind of thing, but just simply that as demonstrators we can choose to run our businesses in our own way and we can all be successful.  It's so wonderful to be part of a company that recognizes that we are all individuals with strengths and weaknesses and that our individual businesses do not have to be cookie cutter duplications of some manual or guideline.  What an empowering morning!!!

Shelli was there to share her inspiration and ideas with us, and she is always SO fabulous to listen to.  I could listen to her all day.  Never in my life have I met someone so genuine and caring.
Oh, and she shared some amazing news!  If you're a demonstrator, or are about to come one (hint hint, major signing bonuses during Sale-a-bration starting Jan.24) Stampin' Up! is renovating the Stampin' Success Magazine that is exclusive to demonstrators.  I. AM. SO. EXCITED.  They showed a few snippets of the new artwork and articles:

And in true Stampin' Up! fashion, Shelli gave us all a present!  A BEAUTIFUL stamp set, and most exciting, it's from the new catalogue!  I can't share the actual stamp set, but look at the excitement on my face!
I HAVE to share this next picture with you, but I can't really tell you what it's all about.  I know, so mean right?!  Long story short, Donna Griffith unveiled a new product that will be available March 1st, and when she did that a bunch of Stampin' Up! employees come out on stage and did a dance routine to celebrate it's unveiling.  I was in stitches laughing myself off my chair!
So after the dance crew had vacated the stage, Donna sat down to do a stamping presentation for us.  I LOVE Donna's presentations, check out her awesome ideas:
Shelli's daughter Sarah shared some cute Valentines projects she made for her children.  I love the simple beauty of them.
And because Sarah wants to be just like her Mom, she gave us a present too!!  Man I love those Gardner girls!!!!  

After a yummy lunch, it was off to the Share Fair.  We had the wonderful opportunity to listen to other demonstrators share their experiences and 'their way'.  My favourite was by my long time blog hero Dawn Griffith.  I just had to sneak a picture with her!
Dawn is a wonderful, inspiring woman who is genuine and charismatic.  It was an honour to chat with her and thank her for all her fabulous inspiration.  A highlight of my day!

I spent a little time meandering through the display area before we left the convention centre, but I'll share those pictures with you tomorrow.  This girl has to hit the pillow!

Happy Stampin'
