6 Month Check In

It's been six months since we launched our MTO program.  I figured a little update would be good for you all to let you know how its going so far.

When we started out, our goal was simple, bring the DFH in shop experience to areas all over the US so people can order their special hand made OOAK doll or critter and help these sweet mamas to earn an income doing something they love and believe in.  

Its been a LOT of hard work on our part as well as our mamas.  Yes, there have indeed been a few glitches but we worked together and overcame them.  After all, its not easy being trail blazers :)

We were told we were crazy and that it would never work.  We are proving those folks wrong every day....and that makes me so proud.  After all, here we are at the six month mark and I am so excited to say that things are going amazingly well. 

Our Mamas are rocking' and rollin'!

I am so proud of them...they grabbed this opportunity and are running with it.  They are growing their own contacts, reaching out in their areas, educating folks about DFH.  They are earning an income while being at home with their babies.  It seriously does not get better than that.  I am so proud of the progress we have made and the direction DFH is heading in.

It's an exciting time for us.  There is no clear road for traveling, but we have a vision of where we will be one day.  We are just making our own trail as we go along.

It reminds me of my favorite quote of all time....

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." 
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 I honestly would not have it any other way.

Our mamas are amazing ladies, each with her own unique way of doing things....I love that about them all.  They are all super mamas :)

We recently had a meeting and one of the subjects was regarding their title.  I mean what do you call a super woman who helps folks who are new to DFH, design their dream doll or critter?  These ladies are not merely taking orders, they are building relationships, sharing their expertise and knowledge to help folks make choices that will best work for their needs.  With all this in mind, we all agreed that Consultant or Representative just did not seem to fit.  They deserved a more accurate title for what it is they do.  So, after a small discussion and a vote by the ladies, we have decided to go with the title...

Design Specialist

You will see that title used to describe them going forward...I like it.  Its rather fitting for what they do...wouldn't you agree?

So...what does the future hold for us?  Well, our ladies will continue to grow.  We here at DFH headquarters in Denton will continue to support them and help them achieve their goals.  In short, we will keep on moving forward. Is it going to be easy?  I can say it is going to be easier than it was at first...but it still will be work for us all.  That's OK...I think we can handle it all :)  After all, nothing worthwhile has ever been easy.

I am so proud of how far we have come in such a short span of time.  I am proud of all our mamas who saw the opportunity we were offering and took the chance that it would be something wonderful for them and their families.  I am excited to see where we will be in 12 months.

If you haven't had a chance to get to know one of our amazing ladies, please take the time to do that.  You will be happy you did....seriously....our ladies rock :)
