Welcome to Stella & Dot!
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!

Connect with your Sponsor
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.
Not on Facebook? You're missing out!
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
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.
Stella & Dot University
Spend a good few hours in your first week watching videos and familiarising yourself with 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.
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.
