Life has been a little chaotic lately. I've had so many wonderful things happening (such a hardship right?!) that I haven't had nearly the time I'd like to stop by this creative space of mine. So what has been going on? Let me catch you up to speed!
I've been a Stylist with Stella & Dot for seven months. I didn't know much about the organizational structure when I joined, but I was so excited about all the jewelry that it didn't really matter to me at that point. I just wanted something fun to do when I wasn't at my day job that got me spending more time with my friends, meeting new people, and wearing fabulous jewels. Mission accomplished; that has totally happened. I've met so many wonderful people, and have developed several new, close friendships. And as for the jewelry? I think these pictures speak for themselves. I've included a list of what I am wearing below in case you are curious.
Over the past few weeks my career with Stella & Dot has really taken off. I hate saying that, because I feel like it doesn't sound humble. And I really am completely humbled by this experience. It has been such a wonderful opportunity, and I am so thankful for every customer, hostess, and stylist that has joined my team since I first started! I feel comfortable saying it has taken off though because this last month I promoted to a Star Stylist with Stella & Dot. To do this in a six month time frame from signing up is considered extremely fast. In order to qualify as a Star Stylist, you need to have developed a team of a certain number of active Stylists and reach group (team) and personal (individual) sales thresholds each month.
The perks of being a Star Stylist make it one of the most desirable levels within our company. Star Stylists have the highest pay return of any position while being able to maintain the position at a "part-time" status. What this means is that the hours needed to do your duties are minimal enough that you could work another full-time job if you wanted. Once you hit Director (the next promotion level), it becomes more of a time commitment and it is trickier to do both. You also receive a promotion bonus (yay!), invitations to exclusive events and retreats with our CEO Jessica Herrin, and access to secrets of upcoming product releases and proprietary information. In summary - it's WAY cool!
Above all of those perks though is the excitement of building a team. When I started looking at promotions within our company, I was most excited about leading and building a team. I have a strong desire to nurture and mentor other professionals. I completely dork out on it and spend my free time reading trainings on how to motivate, provide feedback, and grow your team. I have gained so many wonderful experiences from this company, and it has provided me with so much. It truly makes me so excited to be sharing this opportunity with others.
So that's what has been happening lately! So many fun and exciting changes happening, and so much going on! I can't wait to see what life brings us next!!
