Paparazzi is no stranger to shattering expectations and sharing new possibilities and fresh perspectives. Women no longer need to break the bank in order to look fabulous. A new life, free from the stresses of financial hardship is now within reach for anyone seeking to better themselves. And, our Consultants have shown that a culture can exist where women genuinely encourage and support one another, instead of cutting others down to get ahead. With such a tightly knit group and endless potential, it is imperative that we remain aware of the power of synergy.
Synergy is a force that can be used to lift others up and create something better, or it can be used to magnify the negative and create something worse. As you’re working with your team and other Consultants, pay attention to the power that comes from synergy – for better or worse. Here are some different examples of how synergy can manifest within your Paparazzi business:
Remember that like breeds like. Countless studies of human behavior have shown that an individual will become most like the five people they spend the most time with. Who are you surrounded by? Do you associate with problem solvers who look for solutions rather than dwell on what is out of their control? Are you surrounded by people who continue to tell you that your dreams are unachievable, or do you belong to groups where you are encouraged and supported? Take some time and evaluate who you interact with regularly.
Be aware of the social media spiral. Social media is the ultimate double-edged sword. While it can be used to spread news of success and happiness, it can easily prove the fact that misery loves company. When you encounter a negative post in a social media platform, think twice before engaging. Take a moment and ask yourself if you are about to contribute to that negativity, or if you are offering a solution to the problem or a positive outlook. As your team grows, more and more Consultants will look to you as their leader for instruction on how to handle difficult situations. How you handle that responsibility can make or break you.
Build synergy within your parties. A party with synergy between you as the Consultant, the Hostess, and her customers cannot compare to a party held in chaos. Be clear on expectations, keep your Hostess informed and involved in the process, and make sure the party guests have a positive experience. Staying consistent will help you build a sparkling reputation that will inevitably lead to more Hostesses, more customers, and more team members.
