Organiser of the Month - Carly Cavilla-Hunt

21st October 2016

Usborne Organiser, Amy Collins shares her reasons for nominating her Mentor, Carly Cavilla-Hunt for Organiser of the Month:

"I started my journey with Usborne Books at Home last November as a short term, 'run up to Christmas' cash solution. Carly's help and support allowed me to achieve both Kit Boost and Kit Refund. Her positive energy from the day I started, alongside the quality of her online training sessions, has been the biggest contribution to me remaining an Organiser until now.

More recently, I began team building and Carly's massive influence enabled me to go from mentoring one recruit to mentoring eight in the space of five weeks! I know that the rest of our team feel the same way about her, and she deserves recognition for the amazing job she does."

We asked Carly to share with us her mentoring tips.  Here's what she had to say:

"Mentoring team members is one of my absolute favourite parts of my role with Usborne.  It wasn't something I set out to do when I joined but it just became a natural progression.  I love my business and it has changed my life in ways that I would have thought were impossible three years ago and so sharing that with others and helping them do the same is a wonderful opportunity.

The only skills you really need to begin mentoring are a passion for what you do and an interest in people!  Keep talking to your Organisers and keep focussed on what they want and you can't go far wrong.  My team isn't about me - it's about everyone's individual businesses and dreams and supporting them in making those a reality.  I love to see people do things that would have scared them previously or that they had always said they couldn't do - that's what mentoring is to me.

Of course, the fact that I have an absolutely incredible downline makes my job that little bit easier and definitely more fun!"

Congratulations, Carly.  We will be sending you a copy of our October Book of the Month shortly.
