I'm thrilled beyond words that so many of the demonstrators I know are motivated to work for ALASKA this year! For many, it will be their very first incentive trip. I'm working towards it, too! I've compiled a list of hopefully-helpful reminders/thoughts regarding this exhilarating jump-start period at the beginning. Read it now so you can be prepared for some of the emotions and practicalities that are going to occur during this exciting year!
It's going to be one of the hardest things you've ever done, but also one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of your whole life. My heart is with every one of you who has dared to dream this huge and audacious dream! We can do it!
Feel free to share this handout with your teams or local support gatherings. Many demonstrators find it helpful to add an hour-long bonus session focusing on earning the trip, before or after their regular monthly meetings. You could also schedule a bi-weekly coffee date for all the demos in your area who are working towards this goal, or start or join a Facebook support group for the purpose.
Whatever you do, don't labor alone on this goal. Surround yourself with positive people and keep your eyes on the prize! The groundwork you are laying RIGHT NOW will determine how the rest of your year goes.
Good luck, and DREAM BIG!
