The cat is out of the bag! Yes it has been a very emotional week for me. I was a little sick two weekends ago and had to miss a stampin event to rest. (Which I never do) I always bring my daughter Megan skating in Montreal ( 1hrs drive to and 1hrs back) for skating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays. It is her passion! Since I had been sick, my husband offered to take her last Wednesday so I could rest. Well it was the best thing I ever done. At 8h17pm eastern time, I received a call from my new SAM, Becky. She said guess what! Kim Assaly, you have won Shelli’s challenge!! I almost fell of the sofa!
Sorry Josee and all the others who called or emailed to see if I had won the challenge, but I was told I couldn’t share my news or else… lol Actually I didn’t lie because everyone who contacted me asked if Shelli called, and she didn’t but my SAM did with this unbelievable news. So it wasn’t a lie! Right!
If you would have seen me, I was pacing in the house. I think I told her about 20 times really really. I was shaking. The bug I had caught during the weekend was over. I was recharged. Full of energy. So fully recharged that I had trouble sleeping that very night. Then everything made sense to me.
On January 31st, when the challenge finished, I had recruited 6, my goal was 10. I still do have a few potential recruits but didn’t want to pressure anyone. When the time is right, they will sign up! On February 1st, I woke up at 6am ( I usually have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, I’m an night owl.) with one thing on my mind: I had won the challenge… Then I said to myself it can’t be true. I had spoken to one demonstrator who said she knew a few that had recruited 8. So my chances were over. That is what I taught then. Surprise! My vision from February 1st told me that I had won this challenge and I did. Now that I think of it, it is kind of freeky…
Anyway I couldn’t tell a soul except my SAM said I could share with my husband. So I called him on his cell and said babe I have a secret to share but you can’t tell anyone. Then I paused and started crying. Which scared the jeepers out of him. He taught it was bad news. Then I said chéri, I won the recruiting challenge, Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin’Up! is coming home. He was so proud of me, had a few tears… (sorry for sharing honey) A sensitive man is very sexxy! He got home and kissed me and I knew and felt he was truly proud of me. It was a very emotional time!
It’s been a week now, I think I called my SAM probably three times, Sorry Becky, wanting more details which I didn’t receive yet. They were waiting to post the information on the site. Longest week everrrrrrrrr.
Sorry Marlayne and Jo-Ann that I didn’t attend your events! Anthony and I have a few things to take care of before Shelli comes home. Also, my SAM suggested I stay away from demonstrators so I would’nt spill the beans. Which you would have seen as I am glowing right now!
I so wanted a picture with her at leadership but missed my chance, but now I will get more than a picture…
Thank you Ronda, fellow demonstrators and especially to my customers, for your support.
I will have more details to share as soon as I know when she is coming. It could be in a week or so. I have been checking the Stampin’Up! web site about 10 times a day. What a way to get some hits….Hey!(Proud to be Canadian!)lol…
