My husband, Tim and I just returned from Utah where I was recognized for my Million Dollar Sales milestone that I reached on May 4, 2021.* I am the 50th demonstrator EVER to reach this. So it’s quite amazing. (I’m still pinching myself.)
This Million Sales Retreat event was held March 9-13, 2022 for me and 16 other achieving demonstrators.
It was an amazing experience! We were spoiled in many ways…air travel (first class), a luxury hotel stay, pre-travel & pillow gifts, fun experiences, lots of wonderful meals together, lots of time at the home office, and many opportunities to visit together with each other and with those at Stampin’ Up!.
Below are photos from this amazing experience. I’m starting with photos from the event/retreat. Then at the bottom are photos from the days leading up to it…the sites Tim and I saw (since we flew out early).
Wed., March 9: We arrived at the Grand America Hotel in the early afternoon (this was our room!) and spent time visiting with Lisa, Bob, Alexandra, Sven, Irene, and Joe.
That evening all the achievers were treated to dinner at From Scratch. We sat with Jessica & Donnie.
Thurs., March 10: Achievers and guests were transported to the home office in Riverton. Here we were welcomed with beautiful floral bouquets (all personalized) and lots of cheering from those at Stampin’ Up!.
The decorations were amazing! Even the water bottles were done up in our honor.
We were given a tour, opportunities to meet & visit, and a beautiful lunch with desserts from local bakers.
Donna and Dave are two of my favorite people.
Here are more beautiful friends. Natalie took this selfie above. And here we are with Logan, Sandi and Bob.
Lots of special photos were taken in front of this backdrop. But my hubby and I had to get one of our own, too.
That evening (back in Salt Lake City) dinner was on our own. So we joined Erika, Ted, Angie, Dave, Lisa and Bob for dinner at Valter’s. And on the walk back to the hotel we stopped at a bar to have drinks. Cheers!
Fri., March 11: Achievers returned to the Riverton home office for more fun: product peeks, stamping time, and education & insight into other specific areas of interest. Here I am on the bus with Robyn. Sara photo bombed us. Too funny!
Four artists from the home office shared with Angie, Laura and I how they transform products from ideas into reality in the Product Strategy presentation. I’m next to Jen who helped me create my “million dollar” stamp set (debuting in about year!).
I then Robyn, Lisa, Dawn, Sandy and I enjoyed stamping time with Shelli & Sara. We were also allowed to look through the new 2022-23 Annual Catalog (coming soon)!
After lunch (with more amazing people but I forgot to snap a photo), Product Sneak Peek was next on my agenda. Jen and Kristy shared with Angie, Robyn and I LOTS of new goodies. I’m so excited for what’s around the corner!
My last session was a one-on-one with Andrew discussing my absolute favorite lines: Paper Pumpkin and the Kits Collection.
Guests had free time this day. So Tim joined the guys that we had dinner with the night before, and they spent the afternoon golfing.
The evening ended in a very creative and fun way…with a Mystery Murder dinner. The costumes that many wore were SOooooo amazing!
Look at these great costumes: Dawn and Richard (above)…Sara, Shannon, Brian and Natalie (below).
Sat., March 12: This was our excursion day. Some achievers visited the spa. Some enjoyed shopping in Salt Lake. And some enjoyed Snowshoeing in Park City. You can see what Tim and I picked. It was such a beautiful day, and I had a blast (I LOVE snowshoeing). The scenery was gorgeous, too!
Our group from left to right: Irene, Joe, Alexandra, Sven, Erika, Ted, Donnie, Jessica, Natalie, Susan Elise, Diane, and then me and Tim squatting in the front.
Afterwards we were taken back to Salt Lake to rest, get a bite to eat and clean up. Mid-afternoon we all gathered and were brought to Park City for shopping time…
…and a farewell dinner at the Riverhorse on Main restaurant.
Sun., March 13: This was our departure day. We had breakfast with Natalie, John, Alexandra, Sven, Irene, and Joe. This was the day we got our last gift. Look at all these boxes!! (Each of our gift tags and packaging for the gifts at the retreat coordinated with the cards we received initially when we reached our milestones.)
Here are pics of the other gifts given to us before and then during the retreat. (Our bouquets, bags and wallets were all different.)
Some of us achievers exchanged cards/gifts, too. Here are the fun goodies that were gifted to me.
Sat., March 5-9: As I mentioned before…Tim and I flew out early. We spent March 5-9 at a beautiful, spacious Airbnb in Washington, Utah. It even had a back yard with a grill, a fire pit and a hot tub. But the majority of our time was spent exploring nearby parks: Zion National Park March 6th…
…Snow Canyon State Park March 7th…
…and Bryce Canyon National Park March 8th.
