My Big Debut


Blazer: thrifted, Skirt: JCrew, Top: LOFT, Necklace: Stella & Dot

Today is kind of a big day for me! A few days ago I received an email from Stella & Dot headquarters asking me if I would be willing to participate in a national training call for upcoming leaders within the company. Here is the kicker though, they don't want me to call in and listen - they want me to present! 

A few weeks back I attended the Brighten Your Life training in Seattle with the amazing Danielle Redner who is the VP of Training for our company. I applied for a special personal coaching session with her for upcoming leaders and was accepted! I was so excited when I got the email! I couldn't believe it. I had been working so hard on growing my business and I really felt like things had been going well, but there is something so validating about the leaders of your company looking at you and saying 'we agree - you are doing awesome!'. 

As part of the training we were asked to introduce ourselves by giving some background on our business. I talked about how things were going and what I was working on. Danielle was so excited about what I have planned for the next few months that she nominated me participate in this call to train other upcoming leaders in the company on how to grow their business.

This morning I will be speaking on a call with hundreds of Stella & Dot Stylists giving them all my best tid bits and lessons learned. I'm not one to think I have things all figured out, and to be honest I had a bit of 'imposter syndrome' when I first got the email asking me to present (that is that phenomenon women experience where they think there must be some mistake when people tell them they are awesome - if you haven't ready Lean In you must go do that now!). That said, I am so excited to talk with these girls and offer any bit of advice I can that might help them get to their next step in their business. 

Wish me luck all! 


PS - oh ya, this is what I wore this week for St. Patrick's Day! Gotta let that green shine!
