Ruby Reds March Recognition

& Half Way To May Inspiration!

In Full Bloom

Ahhhhhhh....April! It's one of my favorite months to be a Stella & Dot Stylist & Leader. All of the quiet, but hard, work that has been happening since January is starting to BLOOM. It's truly amazing to see so many businesses in bloom.

I'm not sure WHY April is this magic month....I just know that it IS. Women want to host, ladies want to get together and SHOP. I really should look no further than myself as a good gauge. I have been on a shopping craze for the last several week. Buying everything from shoes to dresses to new pants and tops. I'm so ready to update my wardrobe. Imagine right now if YOU got invited to a Stella & Dot trunk show for the first time. You would be in ahhhh of all of our style. From the catalog to the high-tech website to our high-touch trunk show....you would leave with ideas and inspiration and a few fabulous pieces of jewelry!

"Be Who You Came To Be."

We have so many reasons to book, sell & sponsor! Now is the time to re-engage, relaunch, refocus and REALIZE your true potential! You signed up for a reason. What was the reason? Go back and visit it. It's not too late....in fact your timing is PERFECT! Plant a seed now and watch it bloom. Sometimes we even see seeds bloom OVERNIGHT.

Many of you have heard me talk about my Grandmother Dot. She was so cool and beautiful and full of wisdom. I tried to learn as much from her as I could. I should write a pocket book with all of her insight and wisdom. Just on Friday, I came across a note my Grandmother Dot wrote to Ben (my 6 year old) before he was born. It said...

"Be Who You Came To Be."

Wow. I was moved. It's such a powerful and simple piece of advice. I think we should all take this advice. Be who you came to be. Who YOU WANT to be. Who YOU DESIRE to be. Be that person. Don't be anything less than you came to be. Your potential is HUGE. You just have to harness it, channel it, and BELIEVE in yourself. I believe in YOU.

Aren't You Glad Someone Invited YOU!

Aren't you so glad someone asked YOU!?? Now is the month to share the style and share the LOVE. Who can you invite to be part of our community? There is no time like April to join Stella & Dot! The $100 sign up incentive makes it a very low risk decision!

Listen to this call to get some ideas on how to sponsor by habit...the guest speaker is ME!
