Welcome to Team Moxie!

Congrats on Becoming a New Stella & Dot Stylist

I couldn't be more excited to welcome you to our team!

Stella & Dot was created by bold, joyful women to help all women style their lives as they see fit. You can do as much or as little as you like. All I ask is that for the first 60 days, you really put yourself all in and give this little company your best try. It's a business that works when you work :) You have the potential to earn your investment back right away, earn tons in free product credit, and you might just find you are onto something really big!

By now you have signed up as a new stylist, named your website and you likely have a long wishlist of must have accessories. Your Mentor's goal is to help you stay on course and work towards your goals and define your success. Make sure to read through all the sections in this newsletter and work with your Mentor in getting started. I am so excited to be your business partner!

Cheers to your success!

Hello Friends!

I'm excited to tell you about my new business venture! I decided it was time to do something FUN and just for me! I've always had a passion for design and style, and now I can't wait to share it with all of you.

I've signed up to be a stylist with Stella & Dot, a vintage-inspired boutique style jewelry & accessories line. What I love most about representing Stella & Dot line is that people absolutely adore the jewelry. I also love that I get to work with people like you and that a Stella & Dot Trunk Show is so much fun, and simple, too. It's wonderful to see women taking well-deserved time to indulge in a little style and friendship, two of my favorite things!

You may have seen us featured in InStyle, Lucky, People, & Vogue. Our Spring 2017 Collection launched earlier this month featuring tons of amazing, colorful items perfect for the warmer weather in the near future as well as pieces you can take with you on vacation. Plus tons of new items under $50! Click here to see the newest Lookbooks >> (Insert link from your PWS (Personal Website).

I would love to help you host a Stella & Dot Trunk Show with your girlfriends. I know what you're thinking and it is nothing like your typical "home party". There's no boring presentation, no pressure to shop but most of all, it’s a great way to share a glass of wine and a laugh, while playing dress up with the jewelry. As a Hostess, you'll earn free jewelry and accessories (the average is $250) and can shop at ½ off. I'd also really love to help make holiday shopping easy for you and your friends this year so if you're interested in having a few ladies over to shop from the comfort of your home instead of a crowded, chaotic mall, let me know and we can pick a date. It's as easy as a box of crackers, a brick of cheese and a bottle of wine - I do the rest! I know you love the jewellery so this is the perfect way to get tons of stuff for free and half off (maybe even pay for some Holiday gifts with your hostess rewards). Plus, you'd be helping me in getting my business off the ground by hosting a trunk show.

I would love to touch base next week at some point. If I don't hear back from you in a couple of days, I'll give you a shout next week :)

Collect the No's to Get to a Yes!

They say that for every 10 people you reach out to, you'll get 1 YES. So, start collecting NOs. For every 10 NOs you hear, give yourself a reward. Hearing NO is just part of the process. Those who are successful work past hearing the NOs, they don't take them personally and just move on to the next opportunity. Use 20 seconds of courage to first ask, then listen for an answer. If it's a NO, find some words to say to leave the conversation with a non-icky tone.

ie. "Oh, no worries! I know you're totally busy but I just thought you'd make the perfect hostess so I wanted to give you the opportunity. If you ever change your mind, let me know. And if you know anyone else that would make a great hostess, feel free to give them my email. I'll give you a sparkly gift for the referral!" See? Not icky at all!!

Top Tips for New Stylists

1. Start booking trunk shows. Try to get at least 2-4 in your first 30 days plus your own double-dip launch show..
2. Make a written "Who do you know list" and keep it with you at all times.
3. Schedule a weekly 15 minute mentor call or engage in email/texting with your mentor weekly for the first 4 weeks.
4. Build a pacing partner relationship with another new stylist. Ask me about this.
5. Update your business tools. Business cards, Social Media, Email Signature.
6. Send out an "I'm Opening/Grand Opening/Update email".
7. Self teach at Stella & Dot University in Stylist Lounge. During your first week, you should go through the NEW STYLIST TRAINING and learn how to navigate the Stylist Lounge. Also make sure to listen to all the training calls - either live or recorded.
8. Visit your Stylist Lounge Daily for all the latest updates (takes about 5 minutes or less a day).
9. Visit our team Facebook page often. Post, share, respond. This is your board room.

You can find all the recordings in SDU. Go to the TRAINING tab in the lounge, navigate to TRAINING CALLS, then scroll down below the calender and listen to the calls for whatever topic you need help with. Each time you click a topic, you need to scroll down below the calender to find the new selections available.
12. Participate in Home Office lead training. Every week there are tons of Home Office lead training calls and workshops. Listening in and participating in these workshops is so HELPFUL! I participate often. Plus, they do challenges where you can win product credit!!

Your Group Hello

Increase your sales and lead your trunk show with your group hello. I arrive and during set up I let our hostess know that I don't have a formal presentation, no clip boards or sitting for a presentation, but instead we are going to have fun socializing and styling. Our priority will be playing with the jewelry and I'll ask her to be my top model. Let her know that you will share a little "Stella 411" so that everyone knows what to expect. This is usually done for a group but may be done with a few at a time. Tell her you will give her a heads up and just need her to help with crowd control for a moment so that you can share.

As guests arrive, I welcome everyone with introductions and ask how they know our hostess. It is important to let them know that you'll share some Stella info as everyone arrives within the next 30 minutes. Watch the youtube video below of our CEO Jessica Herrin. And also watch the Group Hello in SDU. You must be logged into the lounge for the link to work.

Try to incorporate 2-3 current trends or versatility into your group hello.
