My weekend started once I drove over the beautiful Newport Bridge, all lit up with the city of Newport in view. The bridge has been used as the symbol of the weekend- you are crossing over into Athena's mode on Friday night and then crossing back into the real world with a new sense of your business and motivation to kick some butt!
Friday night tends to be more low key for me- I save my partying for the holiday party on Saturday. Two of my goddess sisters and I went out for dinner at the Brick Alley Pub. It was nice to catch up on the past year and the holidays over food and Bikini Martinis.
Back at the hotel, Goddesses and Adoni were gathering for Bingo and Karaoke in the bar. I am not a singer (AT ALL!!) so I avoid karaoke like the plague! It was nice to meet new goddesses and catch up with goddesses and adoni I hadn't seen since last year. Then it was off to bed to get ready for an early Saturday morning.
Saturday morning was very overcast and cold with reports of 10-12" of snow coming to the area. I made my annual bagel run to Panera and came back to the hotel to get ready for the meeting. The morning portion of the meeting is a great overview for those who are interested in joining or are new to the company. It is also when some of the incentives are given away- like FREE maid service for a year (yes, please!!). We have a break for lunch and then it is back to the meeting room for the product reveal. Only contracted Goddesses and Adoni are allowed to this portion. There is a session for partners of Goddesses and Adoni to attend that runs the same time (Support your Goddess/Adoni).
The new product line was revealed by Mother Goddess and a fellow Adoni. This year there are some new additions that will tickle everyones fancy. From the Lady Boner, to a Massage Candle to a swirling Your Madjesty, there is something for everyone. Next up was the awards for top teams, top sales and top recruiting for the month of December. Those that were in the top were able to pick a key for the $10,000 treasure box. Little did we know, the key was picked that afternoon!
The meeting was over and we had time to relax and get ready for the evening. The theme for this years holiday party was Boob Tube. Goddesses from my O-team family decided to do The Bachelor, which allowed us to dress up in pretty dresses and carry around a rose. We still never nailed down that bachelor though...
We wend down to the cocktail hour, checked out all the fantastic costumes- some people get really creative- there was an awesome Marge Simpson, and took the annual group photo- which is getting ginormous!
Then it was time for dinner and the awards ceremony. The Top team for the year was revealed, as was the top seller (over $200k) and top recruiter. The Goddess/Adonis of the Year was revealed- for the first time an Adonis won! Next, it was time for everyone who held a key (which was won various ways throughout the year) to stand in line to try it in the $10k treasure box. It didn't take long before the lucky goddess put her key in the box, and with a "click, click" it opened and she was $10,000 richer! What an exciting moment!
Once the excitement waned, the music was turned up and it was time for dancing. I had so much fun dancing the night away, meeting new people on the dance floor and practicing some new moves. I can't wait until the next one!
