Stella & Dot Weekly Team Newsletter

Week of April 7th

Who is ready for a little fun SPONSORING INCENTIVE? Did you know that April is one of the easiest and best months to promote? It is also a super easy month to sponsor (especially with the Sponsoring Special). So we have a little challenge for you - Sponsor between April 1st and April 11th and get your name in the drawing for these amazing Tory Burch sandals! One drawing per new Stylist sponsored! If you sponsor early this month you will be so much more likely to promote because they will likely launch and hold a few more shows this month.

Post results on our Southern Charms team page. Good luck!!

Let's Celebrate March Promotions for the Southern Charms

Lisa Walker- Senior Stylist

Hometown: Yorktown, VA

Start Date: 1/13/2014

Stats: Mother of two girls, 2nd grade teacher, love to travel with my family

Favorite part of business: Building friendships with total strangers by providing a beautiful product, excellent customer service, and making them feel and look beautiful. Oh and I love seeing the text that my little blue card has just been loaded ; )

My three month goal is to share the business, build my team and become a STAR stylist!

Courtnay Gilmore- Senior Stylist

Hometown: Newport News, VA
Start Date: October 29, 2013
Stats: Mother of 2 teenagers, Married 19 years this June, Garden Club Member & Junior League Sustainer
Fave part of S&D business: This answer changes often! In the beginning, I loved how it gave me a great excuse to talk to Donna Naylor often! I was missing her since she moved to Raleigh. And now, I'm loving supporting and motivating my team- and we are all so excited about HOOPLA too! And before S&D, I was not one to change pocketbooks very often. Now, I am a total "Bag-aholic" and change my bag almost daily! I could keep typing away about what I love about S& it ALL!!!
3 month goal: STAR STYLIST

Katherine Coggin - Senior Stylist

Hometown: Williamsburg, VA

Start Date: October 13, 2009

Stats: After many challenges and changes the past 2 years I have finally re-promoted to Senior Stylist. I am a single to my awesome son, Whit (age 9). I substitute teach and have recently become the Director of Volunteer Operations and Sponsorships with Blended Events, LLC.
Fave part of business: The culture of Stella & Dot, all the fabulous women, and of course the products and opportunity. I love it all!

3 month goal: Sponsor 2 new Stylists who hit their Jump Start and promote to Star and help promote 2 first line Stars.

Annie Brinker- Star Stylist

Hometown: Brambleton, VA

Start Date: October 2010

Stats: Mother of three sweet boys (Jack (7), Will (5) and Evan (3), married to a fellow Hokie and all-around wonderful man, Jamie. I love my morning cup of sweet coffee, running, drinking wine with friends, spending time with my family, bargain-hunting and slowly but surely decorating my home full of boys.

Fave part of S&D business: Watching women sign on and fall in love with something new and fabulous in their lives. Without a doubt, coaching is my favorite part of Stella & Dot. I love challenging myself to be a better mentor and pushing myself outside my comfort zone. It fulfills me to be a part of such an amazing group of women, and to contribute to my family in so many positive ways.

3 month goal: Heart of Leadership Star and arrive at Hoopla as an Associate Director

Kim Jones- Director
