Star Power - Becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist

After I had my kids, I felt like I lost myself for a while. Of course I adore my children and they’re incredibly important in my life, but I had a moment of wondering, “Is that all there is?” And, now that they are in school, I’m even happier that I became a Stella & Dot Stylist as I work on my time and can pick the kids up from school.

Even with our most cherished and important life events, jobs or relationships these questions rise up. I realized I wanted something more – I needed to find more joy, happiness and more ‘me’ time.  That was my "why".

When I became an S&D stylist, I didn’t intend to do it full time and I still don’t. Literally and figuratively, Stella & Dot allows you to style your life the way you want.  

The Transformation

I love my ‘side business’ much more than I thought I would and make more money than I anticipated! I just expected to style people for fun and get paid as a bonus, so it was a fun surprise to get promoted from Stylist to Star in eight months, which is a fairly short amount of time. Now that the holiday shopping season is coming, people are starting to shop to enhance their fall wardrobes, and for holiday gifts.

The best part is that I – or you – can have another job and still be a successful stylist: just adjust the time commitment and your goals accordingly.

For me, being promoted to Star Stylist means I transitioned from working solo to having a team of 23 people, coaching them and selling a lot of product. I upped my coaching rate and doubled my income just by sponsoring and selling!

The Journey

In the beginning, each month I just wanted to sell $250, then $500, then $750 and so on. Selling $5000 a month is my new goal. It sounds like a lot, but the jewelry TRULY does sell itself. I chat with more people than I used to since they are asking about the accessories I’m wearing - and I hold in-home trunk shows now than I did when I first signed up. I promote it big time on social media (the company helps us by providing content) but I also wear it all the time. I’m passionate about the jewelry and the company so it’s easy!

Many women seek something expansive to get involved with and might join a book club or bunco group. Becoming an S&D stylist gives people a fun activity in a community of women while they also learn about selling, gain confidence and look cuter while they do it.

Beyond that, we have women who are paying for family vacations and home renovations, single moms who are taking their kids to Disneyland for the first time, women supplementing their husband’s income so their kids can go to private baseball lessons, using the extra cash for In Vitro Fertilization or even buying a car that they’ve always wanted… It’s changing families.

I enjoy being more fashionable and on trend – now I’ll go to a soccer game wearing something adorable; I never would have done that before!

I was recently featured in an online profile on Stella & Dot’s website wearing the Oasis Bib necklace you see here. I love this piece, though it’s been retired from the collection; the last few are on sale. (Nab something if you see it because certain items may not last forever!)
