Amie's Jewels of Wisdom

Is what you do in your business something that others can do? Is what you do attracting others to say I want to do what you do?  If not it needs to because it’s how you will GROW your business! It’s the only way, you cannot build your TEAM your EMPIRE alone. Duplication will not only add to your team, it will allow your TEAM to multiply FASTER. Duplicate your passion, drive, what you say and the way you build your business through specific steps. Keep it simple. TEACH your team members to be just like you and watch your business EXPAND. If what your doing is not attracting others, is not duplicatable or is not growing your business then STOP!!!!!!

Those Who Show Up … Go Up!

Karen Braas-Johnson,  Field Development Manager  

 That was a very popular saying when I was in the Field, “Those who show up … Go Up!” And it’s true.  When you want to grow in your business it is vital to plug into every training opportunity offered on your Team Pages, offered on our Corporate Training Calls, offered on our Consultant Page AND ALL events that are offered.

We have our Main GEM Conference at the beginning of the year and we have our Summer Events … this year in Indianapolis and Seattle.  These Events “ignite” our businesses.  This is where …

·         Relationships are born

·         Relationships are renewed

·         Never-ending ideas flow

·         Training Happens

·         Recognition Happens

·         And MUCH MUCH More!

I hope you are planning to attend one of the two Summer Events happening this month.  Do what you can to make it possible!  It will “ignite” your business to the next level!  AND … NOW is the time to start planning to attend GEM in the New Year!  I attended every conference when I was in the field and I always left refreshed, renewed, and ready to grow!





"I cannot wait for field training this September!  We are so lucky to have 2 amazing choices in Seattle and Indianapolis at the end of September!  Last year I went to the field training and I walked in thinking as a leader I was fairly on point with my biz, but I can tell you I left with so much additional knowledge that has kept me at the forefront of my business.  Meeting leaders, hearing tips for success, reminders of the basics, new and fresh ideas and of course hearing from Amie Larson willbe transformational!  If you are in a rut, want more out of being a consultant, and looking for ways to be the best you can...then this is where you need to be!  Get signed up asap to lock in your space, we have 2 amazing options for you!  I'll be helping to host the Seattle event and I can't wait to see you all there!" -Bonnie Overfield, Jade Leader

Gemstra Consultant Corner

"Hello to our Amazing Gemstra Family! I wanted to take a minute to recognize Courtnay Carter! She joined our team last Monday night! Since then she has personally sponsored 17 and one of her newly sponsored ladies has sponsored two as well! She has also ranked to Garnet! If one lady can do this in less than a week imagine the possibilities that you can achieve in a month!!! She definitely has both oars in the water! Congratulations Courtnay!!" - Jacqueline Cassidy, Jade Leader


“I wanted to take a quick moment, and share a story about one of my amazing ladies Jasmine Rector… She signed up in May before even making her first purchase, and then made her first purchase on May 12th.  She loved everything she received, and spent time enjoying each item (as I’m sure everyone who orders does!).  Come July she decided she wanted to dive in, and started sharing the gift of JewelScent. 

Fast forward to today….. She has built a team of 26 AMAZING ladies, ranked to garnet two months in a row, ranked to amethyst two months in a row, and now hit quartz for her first month.  Why?  She shared what she loved, and made is duplicatable.  Her team has now witnessed her do such, and they have done that exact thing… duplicated.  She has a first level amethyst, and a second level garnet who both signed up in August! And you know what she said to me today?  She doesn’t know why she was pondering selling in June!  Such an impactful thing to hear as I’m sure a handful of our customers are pondering the same thing after receiving their first product…. Don’t let them ponder, follow up!

 As much as I want to brag about her accomplishments, I’m purely sharing to show that the possibilities are endless once you plant your seeds, and continue to water them even through the drought we call summer.  I wish everyone a successful winter, as the holidays are almost up on us!”

Crystal Given, Jade Leader


"My main way of promoting is online, I find it to be such a valuable resource because you are free to communicate with an endless amount of people from wherever you are. So getting online and promoting in as many ways as possible is what has helped me. I promote through my blog, through MANY social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit and more. I post to groups that might be interested in candles and also try to be active on online forums when I can. 

I think promoting in person can be very effective, but it is hard to expand to new people without the internet in my opinion. So the biggest tip I can give is to get online. It takes a little bit of technical savvy but it is a very learnable skill." Carmine Grossi, Garnet Team Builder
