Become a Stella & Dot Stylist!


Jessica Herrin, CEO & Founder of Stella & Dot as seen in Inc. Magazine

I just tuned into a Prospective Stylist Conference Call lead by the one and only, Jessica Herrin. Even as a Stylist of a year and a half, I am constantly finding out new information and feeling re-energized when I tune in. That is one of the great things about being a Stella & Dot Stylist: the constant availability of training and being lead by a leader that is present, approachable and motivating. I would like to be better at that for my team of 8 other Stylists.

I joined in a bit late for the call, but Jessica went into the available specials, available training, and answered questions from current and potential Stylists all across the country.

AVAILABLE SPECIALS
Besides the new, gorgeous Holiday Collection that was unveiled on October 1st, a few new pieces including jewelry, a scarf and wristlets that will benefit the Noreen Fraser Foundation with 100% of proceeds benefitting women cancers, not just breast cancer. We also have the Stella & Dot Foundation Bracelets and Charms that benefit non-profits such as Accion, Girls, Inc., and BuildOn. In November 2012, qualifying Stella & Dot Stylist will be selected to go to the Bronx in New York to makeover a school. All thanks to the sales of the Foundation Bracelets. Yes, it is a trip to win, but we also don’t mind getting dirty or hard work. Not only will you be Styling Your Life as a Stylist, you’ll also be part of a company that has good intentions and gives back.

AVAILABLE TRAININGS
Jessica answered the question of what makes a successful Stylist. She states that you do not have to be incredibly fashionable, knowing the latest runway looks or have a subscription to every fashion magazine out there, you just need to be friendly, love and be enthusiastic about what you do and basically share information. Seventy percent of Stylists have other jobs. I personally have 6 other job titles. Stylists are mothers, single mothers, doctors, nurses, teachers, to name a few professions. You do not need to have a sales or marketing background. Stella & Dot offers many flexible ways to learn and grow your business. There are DVDs, training guides, online videos, training conference calls with playback features if you cannot participate during the live session, in person meetings, boot camp sessions, our annual sales conference called HOOPLA, Facebook groups to learn and bounce ideas off of other Stylists, and local Directors and Sponsors that are available to meet with you one-on-one or chat over the phone. Does your current employer help you grow?

EXPANSION
Jessica answered the question of whether or not Stella &Dot will be expanding past jewelry and accessories. When I first started in May of 2011, Stella & Dot was only in the United States and Canada. Today, they are in the United Kingdom and Germany, WITH sights set on growing! Also, when I first started, Stella & Dot solely provided jewelry. They launched into handbags, iPad and iPhone cases, candles, and now scarves and wallets. Yes, Jessica says the line would like to expand past jewelry and accessories but it will be carefully and thoughtfully be selected and launched at the right time. Stella & Dot is still pretty small and it has so much potential for growth. Only .5% of women in North America have been styled by a Stella & Dot.

I can go on and on as to why I love being a Stella & Dot Stylist but in a nutshell, it has given another avenue for me to remain independent, to be able to help other women to also be independent and put smiles on their faces, to be just a touch more stylish, and I just love the compliments I get. I am more than happy to chat or meet with you about this great opportunity. Please feel free to email me with any questions or to set up a meeting.
