LacocoDots Wrap Up 2012 with a Bang!!

Year in Review

WOW!! We did amazing things in 2012!! I can hardly imagine what we will do in 2013! As a team, we did over $1,027,475 in retail sales and qualified 107 new stylists!!! That's truly amazing. We have iPad winners, glam getaway winners, promotions, stylist rebuilding their businesses in new cities, we branched into Canada, we took our families on trips, we splurged on things just for ourselves... in short, we styled our own lives. WE WERE AWESOME. Be proud and move into 2013 with the confidence that you can accomplish anything and the possibilities are endless. The promise of a new year and a fresh start is invigorating. It's not just about where you've been, but where are you going to go NEXT. What will you do to be awesome in 2013?

Tips from the Field

So many of you shared such great tips as part of the Day 1 Challenge, and as I read through them, I wanted to share them with everyone!!! Here are just a few from some pretty successful ladies!! Enjoy!

From Karla Woods: My Success Tip: While I am still very new to the Stella & Dot family and feel that I am in the position to be receiving more tips than I'm giving, but I have discovered things during my years of customer service and marketing that I feel will help me succeed in this business. One of my success tips is to develop real relationships! Recognize that everyone is different in their thoughts, actions, and preferences. Instead of assuming that everyone thinks the same, ask questions that show their individuality. Discovering their personality and developing a relationship with them will help you more than you know in catering to their wants and needs!

From Lauren Train: Plug into the Stella & Dot community. As I have read the message boards, I have gotten great tips and been encouraged by so many other stylists out there. There are girls that I don't even know who have reached out to me to encourage and support me and the times that I don't know what to do or have slacked on my business, all it takes is jumping on a call, attending a Stella & Dot event or seeing someone else in my community to promote to remind me that I can do it too and to help me plug back in!

And, from our top seller in December, Marie Phelen: Be yourself! Don’t act like a corny saleswoman and people will take you seriously. Treat each customer like she’s your best friend and you’re simply helping her find something fabulous to wear on a date night 
