Greetings to newcomers and welcome back to those familiar faces! February is here, and it's all about love. Despite the dashboard being off-limits for almost a month and the daunting task of wrapping up a month's work in just two weeks, you demonstrated resilience. I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your perseverance. I'm sorry for the delay in resolving the issue, and your patience, understanding, and encouragement were invaluable to me. Throughout this period, your support served as guiding lights. We even managed to find humor in the situation, exchanging memes and laughter, creating memorable moments for some and a refreshing break for others.
As we resume our activities, my commitment to making this program exceptional has reached new heights. It's essential to acknowledge that each of you plays a crucial role in the bigger picture. As we resume our journey, let's focus on acquiring new tattoos, caring for our existing ones, enjoying ourselves, spreading kindness, and reaping the rewards our program provides. This year, my goal is to equip you with the resources and support necessary to become the best ambassadors you can be. Introducing new challenges, social features, and additional opportunities to express your opinions, we strive to empower you to Be Bold, Be You.
It's been a moment since I last penned one of these messages, and I nearly forgot how to kick it off. Typically, I assume the role of a confident author, aiming to connect with you not just in your ambassadorship but also in your personal life. Today's message is succinct and to the point: confront the tasks you'd rather avoid. I'm not here to lay on guilt or issue directives; there's nothing more freeing than overcoming tasks you've been postponing. Starting might be tough, but once you gain momentum, it gets easier. Consider creating a list and tackling one thing each day, or if that feels too frequent, try one per week. Tailor it to your pace, but take that step. Soon, you'll experience a sense of achievement, realizing you can handle whatever comes your way. And what better way to kick off than with the new February challenges? 😉
Enough of my musings as the Author Wannabe. Now, let's shine the spotlight on your hard work (aka the easy part)! We have thrilling giveaways and other significant announcements, so ensure you stay tuned until the end!
Commission Update 💰

For numerous ambassadors, generating sales can be quite demanding. While this holds true, I believe it's vital to adjust our approach to sales. In my perspective, keeping sales in mind is important, but not the sole emphasis. Instead, prioritizing the understanding of the advantages of a thorough Mad Rabbit tattoo aftercare routine is key. With the introduction of new resources and challenges, my objective is to provide you with the product knowledge required for engaging in meaningful discussions about tattoo aftercare. These discussions should put you in control, allowing you to offer personalized recommendations to potential customers based on their individual needs.
Shoutout to our top January sellers:

While utilizing the current resources, keep in mind that both the community and I are here to assist and address any inquiries you may have. Feel free to contact us via email or Discord. Additionally, leverage our network of ambassadors and ambassador artists. Confronting challenges, such as navigating sales discussions, becomes more manageable within a supportive network.
As we strive to catch up and meet our targets, your ideas and input are invaluable. I encourage you to share any thoughts or strategies you may have to enhance our sales efforts. Your assistance in spreading the word about our products is pivotal to our success. Together, we can create a significant impact.

February Challenges 📝
This month, we present an engaging mix of challenges crafted to reignite your creative spirit. These challenges are designed to be enjoyable, seasonally relevant, and easily accomplished. In addition to introducing new challenges, I'm excited to announce the extension of three challenges from last month: YouTube Shorts, Walmart | Taking Care of Dry, Winter Skin, and Discord | Download, Print, & Sign.
While all the challenge details are now available on the dashboard, I want to highlight two specific challenges:
Vaulted Merch Giveaway - I'm delighted to offer you the opportunity to acquire an exclusive piece of vaulted merchandise. These unique designs, many of which have never been available for purchase, are up for grabs while supplies last—with no specific end date. Seize the chance to claim your own piece of Mad Rabbit history by entering. Simply complete at least one other ongoing challenge before participating.
- InkLink | Licensed Artist Network - This directory aims to foster connections among our licensed artists and provide our non-artist ambassadors with a curated list of artists available for appointments. Licensed artists, if you're interested in being a part of this initiative, please fill out the survey. Non-artists, stay tuned for the publication of the directory on the dashboard.
Lastly, before diving into February challenges, look out for our first product education quiz launching later this month. Moving forward, these quizzes will offer a fun opportunity to test your product knowledge and understand what sets our products apart. They will be an excellent chance to ensure you're well-prepared to handle any questions that come your way.

This includes emojis, font files, higher resolution reward pictures, sales resources (including the latest business card templates), social media best practices, Twitch assets, and more.
For licensed tattoo artists, remember to redeem your free soothing gel on the dashboard if you haven't already. If you're interested in product sachets as a reward opportunity this year, please inform me. Additionally, a quick reminder for everyone: Ambassador shirts are still available at a discount! Enamel pins are running low and won't be restocked, so grab them while they're still in stock. Lastly, don't forget you can redeem points for PayPal. If you have specific reward items in mind for this year, please let me know!
