Kudos, News, and Monthly Recap

My apologies for being so delayed in sending you your monthly re-cap. I'm having the hardest time putting the way I feel about November into words.

I guess first things first and the easiest is THANK YOU! Thank You to every active stylist on this team. Thank You to everyone who sold one bracelet and Thank You to everyone who sold 100. Thank you to all the brand new stylists who decided to take a chance on Stella & Dot and launch their business this quarter. Thank You to all the stylists who have literally been on this journey with me for years. Thank You to everyone who set a goal in November and did not stop until it was reached. THANK YOU - Because of all of you, Team Moxie is a Director Team!

Earning a Director Title is a direct side effect of YOU setting your goals and reaching them. I would not have this title if it wasn't for Joelly Belman being a consistent (and now Heart of Leadership) Star Stylist for 4+ months in a row who has her Ruby Charms team of amazing stylists rocking it out every month. And then there is Sarah Obenour who said she would not stop in November until she was a Star Stylist and made it happen on November 29th - but in order to do that she needed brand new, just out of her Jump Start Nicole Breton to sponsor a new stylist and promote to Associate Stylist. I would not be a Director if stylists like Sheila Markowitz, Gillian Powell, Crista Oehler, Leslie Borkenhagen, Ashley Green, and Mary Gies didn't sell $1000's of dollars each month. I would not have a Director title if stylists like Kisha Richards and her Bold Bangles, Angela and Shirlene didn't consistently meet their goals month after month. I would not have a Director title if stylists like Michele Panczyszyn and Pamela Wimmer didn't continue their journey's with Stella & Dot and stick with me through and through. I would not have a Director title if stylists like Christine Schroyer didn't bring along a friend and together set a goal to qualify for the month and promote to Lead Stylist. The list goes on and on because there were 34 of you who were actively working your Stella & Dot business in November and I couldn't be more thankful for all you!

I can remember back to my first couple of Home Office sponsored trainings (like Hoopla and BootCamp) when I first realized I wanted to explore taking my Stella & Dot career down the leadership path. I sat in the room surrounded by other stylists who were already Directors listening to their stories and my sabetours set in - "I could never be a Director", "I'm not as good at this as they are", "I do not know enough people - how will I ever sponsor and lead like they do", "I'm an Introvert", "I work a FT job - everyone here does S&D FT"...and the list goes on and on.

For those of you who have been with S&D for a long time now I think you know I lead this team very organically - I always say it will happen when it is supposed to happen. I never want to push anyone unless of course you want to be pushed - that is what is so great about this business. YOU decide - it's your business your way. When you first sign up to be a stylist it may be because you want the cute jewelry - heck, that was the reason why I joined. The Garden Party was a $248 necklace and I could join for $199? It only made sense :) But if you give it some time - and I mean some real time (not 2 months) you may find yourself heading down a whole different path then you ever intended. After my first year of struggling in the business I made a decision to enter into a 5 year plan - I'm in year 4 right now and I cannot wait to see what happens!

Now I realize I am rambling - so I will close with this. Stella & Dot is what you want to make of it. It is your journey, your way. Set your goals - whether they are monthly, quarterly or yearly. Keep plugging away - do not let the sabetours in - because if I can do this, so can you! It may take 6 months or it may take 4 years. (Remember comparison is the thief of joy so only look at your journey and no one elses).

Your leadership team is here to support you in whatever goals you have for yourself and remember those goals can and will always be changing! For anyone ready to make us a Senior Director team, I say bring it on!
