I also was inspired by another friend's story to think about "what I joined Stella & Dot for..." and "what I got instead..." were never what I imagined! When I first started this business, I was looking for a creative outlet and just wanted a way to get more of the accessories that I loved for free - or at a really deep discount (as I was not making a lot of money in my first job). Honestly, I thought people in direct sales were a little crazy, and only thought I'd do a trunk show for family and a few close friends, but never any more than that!
That quickly changed when I was battling depression in my first job after graduate school just a few years ago. I realized that this business could potentially replace my income and allow me to leave a place that made me unhappy. Six years later, I've been able to replace - and double! - the income I was making at that job, as well as take on other part-time "passion" projects that make me happy!
Now, one of the reasons I style is to create more happiness... in my life and the lives of others! A light shined through my darkness, and it was my Stella & Dot business that made me happiest. By sharing that glimmer with others, I've helped the incredible women on my team find a creative outlet to support jewelry addiction or a business opportunity to earn extra income or grow their skillsets, developed new friendships and relationships in my community, and helped many women (and a few great men!) to find that perfect piece of jewelry to wear every day, to gift to a friend or loved one, or to be a part of a special occasion... which all generates a little more happiness each day.
If you want to do it for the fun, the extra sparkle, the travel, the guilt-free shoe shopping, to renovate your home, or because you only get 18 summers at home with your kiddos before they leave for college, in the end, you do it for you - and what makes YOU happy, and that's pretty amazing.
