End of August - Let's Pump It Up!!!

What can you do to end this month strong?


Hi Team - I just wanted to check in with you before the end of this month and encourage you all to give it one last big HOOO-RAAAHHH for August. The more that you can get out there and talk about Stella & Dot, style your friends and make them look as cute as you, and get those trunk shows booked for September and beyond, then the more you will rock the 4th quarter selling season! I know you can do it, and you will be SOOOO happy to have those trunk shows on the books and be able to pay for your own holiday gift giving for family and friends. As an added bonus, you will be earning free product credits to be able to invest into the new Spring line that will come out in January.

As they said at Hoopla - you need to look at your business as "seasonal", which is every quarter. So whatever your commitment level is with Stella & Dot, whether it be as a hobbyist, a part-timer, or as someone who really wants to make this a full time job to replace the one you have now, the best way to do that is to lay out your goals for the season, and then come up with a plan to make those goals happen. I'm here also, to help you figure out what you need to do and to brainstorm ideas on how to make it happen.

For those of you who have signed up on my team (or have been assigned to my team) in the last couple of months, I just want to make sure that you know that if you do not sell at least $250 (retail) in a quarter, then you will not be eligible to get the 50% off stylist discount on new lines when they become available. So $250 retail is pretty easy - but you all should try to at least "qualify" every month by selling just $500 retail - so that you are then eligible to free new product credits. It's a no-brainer in my opinion - but I just wanted to emphasize that and let you know that's how it works. Please let me know if you have any questions - I'm happy to help you in any way that I can.

August Trunk Show at River Valley Ranch

Cute Ideas for Trunk Shows

These are just some photos from a trunk show that I did at River Valley Ranch this month. I really had some motivated hostesses and they made sure to invite all of their friends, and they went above and beyond making sure that they got their guests to the show. It was over $2,000 and it was so fun! You can do this too!!! You just need to really get good at "hostess coaching"! I can help you - so let's schedule a time to get these basics down.
