So if you missed my post from Friday, you will have missed the fact that I announced that I have decided to become a Stella & Dot Stylist.
It was honestly a long time coming. It all started when we bought this house really. Im not going to lie - I KNOW and BELIEVE that as a Stay at Home mom, I save us so much money. I stay home with Troy and if I did go to an actual out of the home job, my job would just be paying for his daycare. On top of that, my cost of gas would be higher, new clothes for the job, etc. Anyways, I've wanted to contribute financially and bring some money in. Our house has an unfinished basement, and the progress is going a little slower than what Nick and I would like it to. So I thought if I did work, it would have to be from home. Sure I have my Personal Trainer Certification, and I have in fact used it on a few friends in the past couple of months, but that was still something I had to have someone either watch Troy or I'd bring Troy and he'd play with their kids.
A couple of months back, I won a giveaway on Lindsay's blog where I was rewarded with a piece of the Stella & Dot jewelry , and that was the first time I actually took the time to browse Stella & Dot's website. I KNEW my girl Emily Maynard rocked it when she was with Brad whats his face, but that's to the extent. So anyways, I was on their website and OH.MY.GAWWWWD girls, this stuff? I mean, there is not 1 piece I don't want. Have you checked it out? Please do. You can click HERE and it'll take you to my site.
Anyways, so I was in contact with the Stella & Dot representative Lindsay was going through to get her readers a free piece of jewelry and we started talking. Turns out I have NO OTHER REPS IN MY AREA - "OOOO really now?" Obviously being a Stay at Home mommy, I know a lot of other stay at home mommies who would LOVE this stuff. Anyways, she told me to think about it, and get back to her.
I talked to Nick about it, and we weighed the pros and cons and left it alone for a few weeks. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, I went to a charity being held in honor of my friends little boy who has Cerebral Palsy and there was a lady with a Stella & Dot table set up. And it was then and there, I KNEW I wanted to do this. Not only was I hypnotized by all the hot pieces on her display table, but women were swarmed around this table, so it was there I knew there was a market for it. These women loved this jewelry like I did. And if THAT was the case, I knew I'd succeed in this.
So I contacted my original point of contact at Stella & Dot, and it's history ever since and I haven't looked back. I have already booked 3 shows, and my entire month of August is full!
Another perk is for the first 30 days as a Stylist I get 50% OFF, yes FIFTY PERCENT OFF, whatever I want to order on top of the $350 of credit they already give me to start up my collection for my business (averages out to be about 6-7 pieces).
Something else that truly blew me away, and I am going to sound like a saleswoman here for a second, but I can't help it - the hostess rewards! Girls, hostesses make out like bandits! If your guests buy a minimum of $300 of jewelry, you walk away with $45-$75 worth of FREE jewelry PLUS 2 pieces of jewelry at your choice at HALF OFF! If your guests buy more? You get more credit AND the number of pieces at half off.
