If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I have recently become a stella & dot stylist. This all sort of happened out of the blue. I went to a trunk show at a friend’s place before Christmas, more to get out of the house than anything since Sophie was only 2 weeks old at the time. I really loved the jewelry and bags! Then, a few months later, I was talking about some of the jewelry I was wearing with my hairstylist and mentioned that I was toying with the idea of becoming a stylist. A couple days later, I was contacted by her cousin who has been a stylist for a while now. We met for coffee and she told me all about it. I was hesitant at this point since it is essentially a pyramid business model, meaning that the more you sell, the more you move up in the ranks. What made me trust in this company is the fact that there are no minimum sale requirements. I can do as much or as little as I want. What made me decide to ignore my reservations and just go for it was when I met with other stylists in my area for our monthly meet up. It was really inspiring and motivating to be around a group of women who truly love being a stylist, whether it is for fun, as a full-time career or somewhere in between.
So far, I have only had one trunk show, but I do have a couple more booked and I am learning that I need to hustle and put some work into making contacts if I want results. Otherwise, I’ll end up with a pretty snazzy jewelry collection and a pretty sweet discount (but don’t tell my husband!)
