Sponsoring Advice

If you haven't sponsored yet, consider the different ways that our business opportunity can help others. Sponsoring isn't about YOU, it's about the other person and how S&D could be a fit for them.


I've been asking around and these are some of the answers I got from Stylists when asked what is the biggest difference being a Stylist has made for them.


"It has given me my confidence back, after not working for 7 years, I now feel like I can do anything!"


"It has paid for our first family holiday, which we couldn't have had without my S&D income"


"It bought me a pair of Louboutin shoes which I could never have justified to my husband if I hadn't had my own money to buy them, they were £450, next I'm working towards a Mulberry bag"


"Being a Star Stylist has meant that I could reduce my hours at my other job, and now I get to collect my son from school every day which makes me so happy"


"Because of S&D I had my first debt-free Christmas last year, it has made a huge difference to our family"


"I have never had such a great social life! our community of women and the support we share is the biggest surprise to me, I never expected that being a Stylist would make me so happy, for me it's not about the money any more"


"I started because I loved the jewellery, but now I do S&D because it just makes me happy, the product, the company, the team, I love it all"


"When I started I needed to earn £500 a month, I make sure I have at least 5 Trunk Shows a month to sell my £2k so that I know I will earn this, I'm paying off credit cards right now, but after that I want to save for a deposit for a flat of my own"


So, be bold and be proud when sharing our opportunity, it is making a difference to thousands of women already.

Fundraising

I've been asked a lot lately for fundraising ideas. This template can be found by clicking on the link below. Sell the squares, pick a winner at random. This can be left with a hostess prior to her show or is great for events.


Personally, my favourite way to fundraise is to make a donation of £5 or £10 for every Trunk Show booked to take place within the next 5 weeks. I only make the donation after the TS has taken place.

Rockstar stylists of the week

A special mention: Sally Gurnham

Many of you know Sussex Stylist Sally Gurnham. In January, Sally had an accident which shattered her kneecap and left her in this attractive, enormous cast.


Not being able to go to work or drive, Sally has had a rough start to the year, however, in spite of the odds against her, Sally did her best ever TS last Saturday (over £1k), with her cast and her crutches (and with the help of her pacing partner, Stylist Jo Hardy) which resulted in Jo Lee, the hostess becoming a Stylist. This has given Sally a much needed boost! It would have been so easy for Sally to cancel the show, she had good reason, but this is a perfect example of what can happen when you don't give up!


Huge well done Sally xxx

Thank you to Jo Hardy too xxx

Branded Tablecloths

We have a little superstar crafter in the team, Hannah Taiani is a dab hand!!

Hannah made herself the table cloth (pictured) the logo will sit at the front vertical drop of the table at fairs and events.


We are trying to judge interest so that Hannah can give a price for them (thinking under £30).


If you would be interested, please contact Hannah at hannahltaiani@gmail.com

Join our Rising Stars Group!

If you are an Associate Stylist or above, you should be joining this group!


Regardless of how long you have been a Stylist, if you are committed to your business and would like to promote to our most desirable pay rank of 'Star Stylist' within the next 6 months, then this is the group for you.


As a Star Stylist, you will earn commissions on your first and second line stylists, plus you will be eligible for other monthly bonuses. You will also earn a promotion bonus of £375, along with an invitation to Leadership Day at Head Office and an exclusive Star necklace. As a Star, you also get other perks such as invitation to our Star Party with Jessica Herrin at Hoopla (last year we gave away a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes to a lucky Star). Plus, you will be racking up points towards Glam Getaway along the way!


If you can commit to selling at least £1000+ per month and are able to travel to Surrey one Friday per month (daytime) then let me know and I will add you to the group. We are holding these sessions in Stylists homes to keep costs down.

Welcome to Stella & Dot!

I am your upline Director, I support your sponsors, hold regular training and meetings and am here to support you, so that you get what YOU want out of your Stella & Dot Business. The person who sponsored you should be your first point of contact with everyday queries. However you can reach out to me if you have any issues or suggestions or require assistance that your sponsor is unable to give.


About Me:

I am a mum of three school age children, this is my second business in this industry, I joined S&D when we launched in the UK in 2012 when my previous jewellery company closed down, I have been in the biz for about 6 years. When I first started I had babies, toddlers and another job, and to be honest, I joined to get discount on my wishlist! however after my first party, I knew that this was what I wanted to do, so I made a plan with my sponsor and quit my job within 6 months and have never looked back. I still work part-time and do about 6 parties a month.


I live in Surrey, I'm married to the very patient Mr P and I survive on black coffee and gin.


I look forward to meeting you soon!


Michele

XOXO

DIrector & Independent Stylist

Here are the Resources available to you:

Connect with your Sponsor

The person who introduced you to the business is called your Sponsor. She will be responsible for your initial Q&A and getting you started.


It's important to be honest with your sponsor about what you want from your business so that she can offer the right level of support.


During your Jumpstart period (your first 60 days) we recommend having a quick chat once a week with your sponsor.

Attend a Monthly Meeting (every month!)

Stylists who regularly attend a monthly meeting have much stronger businesses and are more likely to have longevity. Without connecting with other Stylists doing the same job, it's very hard to get motivated and inspired. Also, it's more fun together!


See Forthcoming Events above, if we aren't holding one in your area, there are many other Directors and Leader-led meetings all over the country. Search under events in the Tools & Resources/Stella & Dot University part of the Stylist Lounge or website to find yours.


If there isn't one, then tell me!! I am working with Head Office to get the nation covered.

Monday Masterclass Training Calls

Most Mondays 8.30pm (see events above) dial in from wherever you are, we cover a new topic each week for 4 weeks, perfect for new Stylists or those wishing to re-engage.

Not on Facebook? You're missing out!

We have a Team Facebook page for Majestics, it's a closed private group just for us.

I use this Facebook page to do give-aways and share important information as it happens. it is also a useful forum for you to ask questions and share tips.


Even if you don't want to use Facebook for your personal life, you really need to use it for communication purposes within the team and wider Stella & Dot community.


Add me as a friend and I'll add you to the group: www.facebook.com/michele.porter1

Making the Most of Jumpstart

A bit of sisterly advice to you all. If there's one thing you'll kick yourself for not doing, it's making the most of your JumpStart (first 60 days).


Familiarise yourself with what you could be earning in this period and chat to your sponsor about it.

Read & Watch The Weekly BUZZ

The Buzz is the weekly newsletter from Head Office, it's how announcements are made, it's short and fun but has links to all the tools that you need to run your business right now.


It's a 5 minute video, once a week. Just watch it!

Stella & Dot University

This is an online learning resource, basically a library of documents and videos to help you self-educate your way to success. I know at first it seems really daunting. Start with the New Stylist section first!


Spend a good few hours in your first week watching videos and familiarising yourself with SDU.

Getting Started Guide

This is a fab booklet available in the Business Supplies section of our shop on the Stylist Lounge. You can buy it, or you can download a copy for free from SDU.

Head Office Training Calendar

There is a weekly New Stylist Training call you can dial into with Sam Walpole, our UK Training Manager.


Find this on the Stylist Lounge, it not only shows what training and support is taking place, but also has recorded archives of training calls. I download these as mp3's and listen to them on my phone or ipod in the car or around the house.

The Stylist Lounge

You should get in the habit of logging on every day during your first few weeks, to get used to where everything is.


News items in particular, as well as the Product Alert list which is updated daily and shows any items low or out of stock and when they are due back in.

Hoopla!

Hoopla is our Annual 2 day Conference, it is in June, in London.

If you want be successful and earn more money from your business, you need to go to Hoopla.


We have the best, game-changing training, not to mention cocktail parties, team parties prizes, dancing and FUN!

CEO & Founder Jessica Herrin, Chairman Mike Lohner, Chief Creative Officer (heads up Design Studio in NYC) Blythe Harris and VP of Global Training Danielle Redner will be there, they are each so inspiring and motivating, but when they get together, great things happen!


Tickets will go on sale a few months beforehand.

Tickets usually cost about £150 and include products to the same value in our goody bag. S&D negotiate a good hotel rate for us and Stylists usually share rooms to keep the cost down too.


Put the date in your diary now! 26-28th June 2015.
