Limelight by Alcone Enrollment Freeze and Wait List



Hello friends!  I hope you are all having an amazing weekend.  I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you some exciting happenings going on right now with Limelight by Alcone. 

When I first joined this company 6 months ago, I always knew the second people tried our products they would see the difference and everyone everywhere would want what I already knew. This professional cosmetic brand is making quite the name for itself and we can't seem to keep the products on the shelves right now.  Limelight by Alcone is consistently growing at 40% month over month. So many big leaders in other companies are noticing the undeniable growth and quality of the products and taking the leap of faith to start over.  

There are so many things I love about Limelight by Alcone, but one of my biggest things is we are all about our customers and providing a positive experience. As more and more people continue to realize how amazing this opportunity is, our CEO has decided to freeze enrollments to gain better control over the inventory.

Our waiting list is growing by the day with those wanting to hear more about this company and if this opportunity is right for them. They want to get in on this wave that is being created to ride it rather than watch it. 

I foresee this company's growth to be tremendous in 2017 and beyond. If you are interested, NOW is the time to take advantage of this amazing opportunity, it could be your first step to creating the life you never thought existed.  Join my team and you will have one on one assistance and training from me. I am here for you every step of the way, either through building your makeup collection or coaching you on helping others to build theirs. If you would like to be a part of this amazing opportunity, email me at karentuccibeauty@yahoo.com to find out more or visit my Facebook page.
 
XOXO,
Karen

How to Pick the Right Limelight Foundation Shade


Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I wanted to share with you a few tips on how to pick the right limelight by alcone foundation shade.  I use these tips when trying to color match a customer because I want her to feel confidant that we have picked the perfect shade!  Are you still struggling to find the perfect shade of Limelight foundation?  Here are a few things to consider when finding that perfect shade...

 
KNOW YOUR SKIN'S UNDERTONE
 
 
 
Knowing your skin's undertones is essential to finding the right foundation.  Not sure?  Look at the inside of your wrist to see if you are more pink, yellow or somewhere in between.  Another thing to consider are the color of your veins.  If they are more blue, you are a cool tone.  Green veins indicate more of a yellow tone. 

ONE SHADE DOES NOT ALWAYS FIT ALL

One shade may not always be a perfect match for you.  You may find that you need to combine multiple foundation shades to achieve your perfect match.  Are you in between two shades?  Try blending them together to see if that will give you the look you are going for.  Limelight by Alcone foundation can easily be blended together by warming them on the back of your hand. 
 
WHEN IN DOUBT, GO LIGHTER


If you are still stuck in trying to choose between two foundation shades, you want to always choose the lighter shade.  By choosing a darker shade, your neck will not match your face or the rest of your body.  You can always darken the shade by blending it with a darker foundation shade or apply bronzer to contour.  Still in doubt?  Buy them both!  Our ever changing skin color during the year will sometimes call for a darker shade during the Summer months.

PICKING A SHADE IN THE SUMMER MONTHS

Our skin color is constantly changing throughout the year which is another reason to buy 2 similar shades of foundation.  In the Winter months, you will want to choose a shade as close to your natural skin tone as possible and then go one shade darker in the Summer. 

Still have questions?  Feel free to contact me anytime at karentuccibeauty@yahoo.com to request your Limelight by Alcone Foundation samples.  If you still have questions on color matching, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I would love to help.   Have a great day!!!
 
XOXO,
Karen

Top 10 Things To Do While Waiting for Your Limelight Starter Kit


Happy Wednesday friends!  I hope you are all having a great week!  One of the questions I hear often from my new team members is what can they do while waiting for their Limelight by Alcone Started Kit.  I know they are extremely excited to hit the ground running I can't say I blame them!    Now that they have joined the Limelight by Alcone as a new Beauty Guide, I’m sure they are chomping at the bit to get their Limelight business started.  Wouldn’t it be great to utilize the next few days to get a jump start on your new business?  I would love to help you in building a solid foundation so you can rock your new Limelight business once your kit arrives.  Today I’m going to share my list of the Top 10 tasks to work on while you are waiting for your Limelight by Alcone Starter kit to arrive. These tasks will help you gain knowledge about the company and products, start building your customer base, and help you get a jump start on launching your business!

 
 
SCHEDULE YOUR LAUNCH PARTY
 
A Launch Party is Key to let everyone know about your new Limelight by Alcone Business.  A Launch party is about introducing to absolutely everyone you know about your new business.  Selling makeup is amazing but it will not prepare your business for the future. You want to focus on booking parties, building relationships and getting the word out there that you are the go to Limelight by Alcone Beauty Guide in the professional makeup industry!  When you are planning your launch party, you want to keep it simple and remember the three P's: Preparing, Planning and Presentation.
 
Remember to keep your launch party fun, exciting and stress free. Take a deep breath, relax and have fun!  Have a great time showing off your new Limelight business to your friends and family.  Your smile and excitement will be contagious, your guests will want to be a part of it too whether it's joining your team or hosting a party. 
 
CREATE A FRANKS LIST

You are probably asking at this point, who is FRANK?  LOL!  Here is where this fun term comes from:

(F)riends or Facebook

(R)elatives
(A)cquaintances or Activities
(N)eighbors
(K)ids
 
It's very important when creating your FRANKS List to go in with a positive attitude and open mind. Remember that you are presenting someone with an amazing opportunity!!!  The gift of buying an amazing product, earning free products or the gift of time and financial freedom.  More importantly, never pre-judge!  Some one that you omitted from your list could end up on someone else's list and end up as their customer, hostess or new team member.  If you think they are an amazing person, someone else does too!  You just never know how people will react, or who they could lead you too.  You also want to remember that your FRANKS contact list is your greatest asset when starting your business.  Keep in mind too that as your business grows and evolves, so will your FRANKS List.
Creating a FRANKS Contact List is simple, you just write down names of people you associate with in each of these categories.   Keep your list long, it will feel so much better when you receive your first few no's knowing that you have so many more people to talk to about this amazing opportunity.

When compiling your FRANKS Contact List, it is important to use Memory Joggers to get you started.  Here are a few examples of memory joggers: Babysitter, Banker, Bridesmaid, Dentist, Doctor, Sorority Friend, BFF, Teacher, Gym, Co-Worker, Sister, Realtor, Unemployed, Stay At Home Mom, People Person, Popular, Needs More Money, Best Dressed, Strong Influence, Service Industry Worker, Enthusiastic.  These are just a few sample memory jogger terms or adjectives to use when thinking of those individuals who would be amazing assets to your FRANKS Contact List.
As you create your list, remember to keep an open mind and do not pre-judge!!  You never know what someone else is going through, what their dreams are or what their current financial situation is.  You could be providing them with an amazing gift and they will be forever thankful for the opportunity.  Sometimes people just need an idea presented to them, they may have never realized that what they had been searching for all this time was right in front of them.  All they need is for you to ASK!

OPEN A SEPERATE BANKING ACCOUNT

When I joined Limelight by Alcone, I opened a new bank account.  I love keeping my business and personal finance separate from one another.   By keeping your finances separated from the very beginning will allow you to keep more accurate records and alleviate any issues later on. 

You will also want to start tracking your business expenses in a spreadsheet that go along with your bank account transactions.  This way you have a methodical and consistent way to keep your records.  I also keep all business related receipts in a separate file folder in my desk and make sure all receipts are recorded in my spreadsheet.  You will thank me come tax season! 
 
 

EXPLORE YOUR GREEN ROOM
 
Limelight's corporate office has done an amazing job of creating training resources that will assist you in getting started in your business.  You will also receive a series of 8 daily emails beginning with the first day that you sign up.  Be sure to read through each email carefully, they are full of lots of great information that you will need to know in getting started with your new Limelight business.  If you have joined my team, The Makeup Mamas, I will also be sending you an Email and a Welcome packet to get you set up for success.


SET YOUR BUSINESS GOALS
 
Let's talk goals, have you written down what you would like to accomplish in your Limelight by Alcone business?  Do you have an action plan in place to achieve those goals?  I personally believe that setting goals is critical in achieving what you want in life and in your Direct Sales business.   Whether it's achieving a certain sales goal or a certain rank within your company, goals are what drives you to make it happen!

When setting goals there are a few things to keep in mind...the key to setting goals and achieving goals is to visualize them by writing them down or creating a vision board.  I personally love writing down my goals and putting them in my planner.  I keep them front and center on a post-it note with everything I do as a constant reminder of what I want to achieve.   Also, you want to align your goals with YOUR personal vision and what is important to you.  
 
READ LIMELIGHT'S POLICIES AND PROCEDUES
 
Limelight's Policies and Procedures are a set of regulations and guidelines that you agreed upon when you signed up to become a Limelight by Alcone Beauty Guide.  There are many important things you will need to know when conducting your Limelight business and what you can and can not do as a Beauty Guide. We are all responsible for knowing the rules in which we can run our businesses effectively and it is important to know these rules ahead of time so there is no confusion down the road.
 
CONNECT WITH YOUR TEAM THROUGH FACEBOOK GROUPS
 
Once you join Limelight by Alcone, it is important to be added to your mentor and upline team's Facebook groups.  Your mentor should have her own closed Facebook group and also be a member of several other Limelight by Alcone related closed groups.  Let your mentor know that you would be interested in joining one of these groups.   Facebook is an essential training and networking tool today in the direct sales industry today.  It's the perfect tool for training opportunities, getting to know your other teammates and sharing ideas with one another.
 
SIGN UP FOR A CREDIT CARD READER
 
Research a credit card reader for your smart phone.  There will be opportunities where you will sell some of your inventory or receive credit card payments from customers.  You want to be prepared by being able to accept credit card payments right on the spot.  Credit Card readers are very convenient and handy and only charge a small percentage per swipe.  I currently use a Paypal Reader which is so easy to use and the one I highly recommend.  I also recommend opening a Paypal account to go along with your Paypal reader, this will be a very helpful alternative for your customers to pay you for products. 

Paypal sends you the credit card reader for free along with a free app to use.  You are only charged a small percentage per swipe.  There are no monthly fees! There are other Credit Card reader options you can choose from such as SquareUp and PayAnywhere.  Take the time to research one for yourself.  Chose the one that is right for you! 
 
 
SET UP YOUR OFFICE SPACE AND ORDER BUSINESS SUPPLIES
 
Now here comes the fun part - organizing an office space for your new Limelight business.  There are so many different options to choose from...whether it's your home office, a corner of your family room or even a mobile office you can bring out and set anywhere...you will want to have a separate space for your new business.  Having a designated office space ensures that your items are easily accessible and are ready and waiting for your when you want to work your business.  It also keeps your personal life separate from your business which can be very important, especially if you have kids!

Now is a good time to also order any business supplies that you may need, especially your business cards.  Limelight has teamed up with Vistaprint for you to order business cards and other informational brochures that will be useful to you when running your business.
 
FAMILIRIZE YOURSELF WITH THE PRODUCT LINE
 

I am sure by now you have already fallen in love with Limelight's amazing products...whether you have tried the Botanical Foundation or the Enduring Lip Color...you can not wait to share these awesome products with your friends and family.  As you wait for your Starter Kit to arrive, now is the time to familiarize yourself with all of the amazing products that Limelight has to offer.  In your back office, you will find Limelight's Product Information Guide.  Be sure to look through it as well as familiarizing yourself with the ingredients of the products.   By doing so, you will feel so much more confident when explaining the benefits to why Limelight's products are simply the best!

There are many other tasks that you could work on while you are waiting for your kit to arrive – but I think these are the most important and will help prepare you for your new business.  Be sure to stay connected with your mentor and ask any questions you may think of while you are completing these tasks.  Many times the questions you are asking can also be found in your back office or on your team’s website or Facebook group too.
I know you are going to love being a Limelight by Alcone Beauty Guide and you have an amazing adventure ahead of you! Enjoy the journey and good luck!

Creating a Limelight by Alcone FRANKS List




Happy Monday friends!  I hope you all had a blessed weekend with your family.  It’s hard to believe we are already kicking off another week!  I don’t know about you all, but it seems like time has been flying by lately. I’m sure that is just a direct correlation with how busy we have been in recent weeks. 
I am still bursting with excitement over the amazing February that Team Makeup Mamas just celebrated.  Together Team Makeup Mamas added 7 new team members and celebrated several promotions!  I love these ladies so much, they are so passionate about sharing the Limelight love and spreading confidence like wildfire.  It was an amazing month and I could not be more excited for the future of Team Makeup Mamas.
It is SO important as a new Limelight by Alcone Beauty Guide to start your business off STRONG and I am here to help lead the way!!!  Today we are going to chat about creating a FRANKS Contact List.  You are probably asking at this point, who is FRANK?  LOL!  Here is where this fun term comes from:
(F)riends or Facebook
(R)elatives
(A)cquaintances or Activities
(N)eighbors
(K)ids
 
It's very important when creating your FRANKS List to go in with a positive attitude and open mind. Remember that you are presenting someone with an amazing opportunity!!!  The gift of buying an amazing product, earning free products or the gift of time and financial freedom.  More importantly, never pre-judge!  Some one that you omitted from your list could end up on someone else's list and end up as their customer, hostess or new team member.  If you think they are an amazing person, someone else does too!  You just never know how people will react, or who they could lead you too.  You also want to remember that your FRANKS contact list is your greatest asset when starting your business.  Keep in mind too that as your business grows and evolves, so will your FRANKS List.
Creating a FRANKS Contact List is fairly simple, write down names of people you associate with in each of these categories.   Keep your list long, it will feel so much better when you receive your first few no's knowing that you have so many more people to talk to about this amazing opportunity.
 
FRIENDS - Ask yourself, which of my friends would be interested in hearing more about Limelight by Alcone?  Don't forget to look through your Facebook friends, cell phone contacts, email contacts or your LinkedIn contacts ~ there may be some people there that you still count as friends but you haven't spoken to in awhile.  All of those high school friends and old sorority sisters that you haven't connected with in years, what a great reason to reconnect and let them know what is new with you!!!  Just be sure not to bombard your online contacts with status updates and impersonal messages that are perceived as spam about your Limelight by Alcone business.   This not an effective way to utilize social media and it will only turn them off.
RELATIVES - Do you have any relatives, local or out of town who may be interested?  Don't forget to include your spouse's relatives too when building your list.
ACTIVITIES - Are there people I have met in activities that I participate in who may enjoy hearing about Limelight by Alcone or looking for a career change?  Think about your community organizations, church and other social groups.
NEIGHBORS - Your neighborhood is a great place to start sharing the Limelight love.  Pass out your catalogs or flyers letting them know that they have a new Limelight by Alcone Beauty Guide in their neighborhood.  It's also a great way to connect with a new neighbor that may have just moved in looking to meet other neighbors.  Share with her the possibility of having a Limelight by Alcone Makeup Party and invite the neighbor hood over for a girls night out. 
KIDS - If you have kids, I am sure you have met other parents through their activities, daycare, Mom's groups and play groups.  I personally have met a lot of parents and teachers through my daughter's preschool and have turned into the "go-to" mom for Limelight orders.  It's been such a amazing opportunity and I love it!  I make sure I wear at least some makeup during pick ups and drops off and always carry my business bag that has Limelight by Alcone embroidered on it.  Everyone at my kids school knows that I am the Limelight Lady!
When compiling your FRANKS Contact List, it is important to use Memory Joggers to get you started.  Here are a few examples of memory joggers: Babysitter, Banker, Bridesmaid, Dentist, Doctor, Sorority Friend, BFF, Teacher, Gym, Co-Worker, Sister, Realtor, Unemployed, Stay At Home Mom, People Person, Popular, Needs More Money, Best Dressed, Strong Influence, Service Industry Worker, Enthusiastic.  These are just a few sample memory jogger terms or adjectives to use when thinking of those individuals who would be amazing assets to your Limelight FRANKS Contact List.
As you create your list, remember to keep an open mind and do not pre-judge!!  You never know what someone else is going through, what their dreams are or what their current financial situation is.  You could be providing them with an amazing gift and they will be forever thankful for the opportunity.  Sometimes people just need an idea presented to them, they may have never realized that what they had been searching for all this time was right in front of them.  All they need is for you to ASK!
