I started to use Tropic products two years ago and fell in love with them from the moment I tried the travel set!
I soon got a collection of the skin care and then gradually replaced my make up as I knew two Ambassadors selling Tropic so tried to support them both.
The first Tropic roadshow came to Norwich, and of course I went along to learn a bit more about this lovely company.
Then this year’s roadshow in January was right near were I live so I went along again, and I was so inspired by the Ambassadors who sat on stage telling their stories on why they had become Ambassadors and why they loved there jobs so much.
It was while I sat listening that I decided that I could become an Ambassador as I loved the products and the whole ethos behind the brand. Susie Ma (the Founder) is an inspiration, and she has a real passion for her products. I knew I would feel confident enough to sell to my family and friends, and I am a lady who loves pampering, so thought it would be a great job for me!
I went to my training meeting and ordered my kit, and couldn’t wait for it to arrive. In the meantime I was contacting people and telling them what I was going to be doing, and inviting them to my launch party, and asking if they would be interested in hosting a pamper for me, or having a facial done so I could get some practice in before my launch party.
People were happy to support me and help; even the people who had never taken care of their skin before, or who didn’t have the money to spend. Some of these ladies have now fallen in love with Tropic and are becoming regular customers, although I’m not allowed to tell their husbands!
I had my launch party which was a great success, and did my first pamper, and was loving my new career. I was hitting my leap aheads and sailing along nicely. I had my heart set on getting the white bag to put all my kit in, and had 30 days to achieve this, but then we had the bad snow week and my hostess cancelled her pamper the day before, and to say I wasn’t disappointed would be a lie (but I also understood why).
I had two days to hit my final target as I really wanted that bag – I then pleaded and begged, gave 10% discounts to get that bag I’d set my heart on!
I got some orders and bought a Deluxe Skincare Collection myself, and it was while I was putting the order through the system crashed (I could have sworn) – thinking it was my device, I then turned on another IPad I have and that was playing up too.
Thinking this is not meant to be and my time was running out, as I had about 4 hours to get this ordered, I messaged my Manager Nicola, but knew she was doing an online event herself so she may not get back to me. But she did (bless her) and she found out the system had crashed and no one could get orders through either – I was not alone and I felt I had the support of my Manager and I knew that everything would be OK.
Eventually the system was back up and running my order was put through and I hit my target and got my bag, plus my new products for free!
So far it’s been an amazing start to my new business and I’m getting reorders and new customers, and pamper party’s are steady. I’m loving having my home full of lovely Tropic products and feeling fulfilled from introducing them to other people so they can enjoy them too!
