HERE’S WHAT YOUR WORK WILL LOOK LIKE…

• Getting to know Lucky Break classes + services like the back of your hand.

• Supporting Lucky Break clients via email + phone. They’ll need you to help them navigate offerings to determine what will serve them best.

• You’ll also field more traditional customer service queries: locating + updating customer accounts, handling billing questions, scheduling private strategy sessions, etc.

• Managing my work schedule: booking clients, meetings, interviews, etc.

• Proofing line sheets, curriculum slides, blog posts, and handouts.

• Conducting detailed internet research for new projects.

• Helping match our Wholesale Matchmaker members with “good fit” stores that might be interested in carrying their work.

 

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR…

• Live in the Eastern or Central time zones of the U.S.

• Have access to your own phone line, computer, internet connection, and printer.

• Be willing to travel domestically 2-3 times per year for up to 5 days at a time for team retreats + company events.

• Have an eye for detail, a killer work ethic, a patient spirit, extraordinary communication, ninja-like organization skills, and a heart for people.

• Be a motivated self-starter capable of managing a robust workload while working independently.

• Enjoy being part of a small team of highly motivated women who have a deliciously low threshold for B.S.

• Be flexible. You’ll need to continually prioritize projects + learn new skill sets.

• Be capable of striking a healthy balance between professional + personable. We pride ourselves on delivering knock-your-socks-off customer service.

• Possess better-than-average writing + editing skills.

• Be ridiculously trustworthy. You’ll be signing both no-compete + non-disclosure agreements.

• Know how to have a good time. We work hard, but we play hard, too!

*** Some experience as a maker or product designer is strongly preferred. Our community has unique challenges and strengths that are easiest to relate to if you’ve traveled this path yourself! ***

The Lucky Break Calendar – November 2017

LuckyBreakCalendar_Nov17

It’s here! It’s here! November has started, and that means we’re officially into the beginning of the retail holiday season. All of that hard work you’ve been doing to prepare is about to pay off. I know many of you are in the final stages of finalizing your Black Friday / Cyber Monday offerings, and, well, you know me. I’m never one to shy away from sharing my thoughts on discount promotions.Just. Don’t. Do. Them.

 

Need a few ideas on what you can do to still attract those clients like bees to honey? I’m sharing my ideas here, and I hope they’ll prove useful to you.

 

Whatever you’re working on this month, know that I’m cheering you on! And that the entire Lucky Break team is forever thankful for you.

The Lucky Break Calendar – October 2017

LuckyBreakCalendar_Oct17

It’s hard to believe October is already here. Summer has officially wound down, and we’re into the season of changing leaves and dropping temperatures and all things pumpkin spice. Let’s see a raise of hands – who here has a pumpkin spice product that is flying off the shelves this month?

While the initial holiday pitch period is also over, there are still plenty of buyers placing orders, so follow up! Follow up! Follow up! You still have a good 30 days to get your name into their inbox and to get your products onto their shelves.

This month you should also see retail sales begin to pick up, too. So pour another cup of coffee, or tea, or go pick up one more PSL, and remember that I’m always cheering you on!

The Lucky Break Calendar – September 2017

LuckyBreakCalendar_Sept17

Adios, summer! Hello school year. Many maker mamas I know are raising a toast to the return of school days, and if that’s you, I’m raising a toast to you! The days may still be warm, but come September we’re in the thick of transitioning into holiday mode for our businesses, and by now your plan should be in full swing for both wholesale and retail sales.

This month my team and I are welcoming our last semester of BHB, preparing for the next open enrollment period of BHB, and getting things ready for our annual retreat in October.

Whatever you’re up to this month, know that I’m cheering you on!

The Lucky Break Calendar – June 2017

LuckyBreak_JuneCalendar

Mercy! May was quite the month + in many ways, I think my entire team is still recovering (did you see that we threw ourselves off of a building together)? I’m spending June welcoming new members into the LBU Cohort, graduating my spring semester of Brick House Branding, and, oh yes, preparing to move my entire life to a new state. No rest for the weary!

 

I hope you’re spending some time this month getting ready to begin your holiday outreach. I know it’s only June, but I pinky promise it’s time! If you need some help with your wholesale game, then take a peek at my LBU Cohort. Enrollment is open through June 10 + I’d love to reserve a seat for you! If you’re already a member of Wholesale Matchmaker, make sure you look at your My Resource tab and download your Developing Your Holiday Game Plan PDF, and dig in!

 

Whatever you’re working on, I’m cheering you on!
