A Note of Gratitude
My First Anniversary with Stella & Dot
Today marks my first anniversary as a Stella & Dot stylist and I wanted to send a special THANK YOU to all of you.
When I first heard of Stella & Dot a couple of years ago, I had no idea what the company was all about. But in early 2011 after hearing so much about Stella & Dot, I got on the internet to learn more and was blown away with the incredible product and the amazing business model. I then watched a friend of mine launch her own Stella & Dot business and saw how much fun she was having earning extra income for her and her family. I thought to myself, “This could be a fun way to earn extra cash for our 10th wedding anniversary trip to Italy.” So one night, just before going to bed for the evening, I sat in front of my laptop for a few minutes and signed up to join my friend’s team as a Stella & Dot stylist. Two weeks later, I officially launched my business with my first trunk show. That first show earned me $550 in extra cash and $450 in free jewels – so from then on, I was hooked!
At the time, I was working full-time for a medical device company. While I quickly learned how simple it was to fit in the fun “girls night” trunk shows around my work and family schedules, I knew that I was not happy with a job that required frequent travel and took me away from my family – a wonderful husband and an adorable then 2-year old little girl. So this past June, I took a giant leap of faith and left my corporate job. Now, I am my own boss and running my own business – allowing me to earn an income with the flexibility to work the business around my family’s schedule. I work alongside an amazing group of women – all determined to “style their own lives” with this social selling business and achieve their own personal goals (extra fun money, family vacations, private school, new career, whatever!). They inspire me every day and bring so much joy to my life.
So I offer my most heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you – customers, hostesses, stylists, friends, and family – for supporting my business and helping me to achieve so much for myself and my family.
