Why I love Stella & Dot... I have always been interested in fashion & merchandising. I was accepted to F.I.T. (long ago) but wasn't sure if I was ready for the fast-paced world of fashion. I choose a different path & became a Massage Therapist. Stella & Dot gives me an opportunity to be creative again with fashion, travel & photography. I love the quality & versatility of the products. Stella & Dot products are right on trend yet you can style & wear how you feel comfortable! Now that's winning!
I love the fashion, the flexibility, the fun and being a part of this amazing community of women. Stella & Dot, an Inc 500 Fastest-Growing Company, is a social selling company that creates flexible opportunities for women to be work from home entrepreneurs. We believe everyone deserves great style, fun and opportunity in their everyday lives, and we're dedicated to providing it in a personal way. That's why we sell our line exclusively through friendly Stella & Dot Stylists online and at in-home trunk shows. Customers and hostesses adore the style, and each Stylist can build their own flexible, modern business on a foundation of irresistible product and exceedingly personal service. Go ahead and indulge your friends in a little girl time and shopping by hosting a private party. And don't be surprised if you enjoy the experience and the rewards so much you decide to join us as a Stylist. We'd love to have you!

Our readers would love to get to know you more Natalie. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I am a chameleon. I have so many different passions and can adapt and multitask many of my interests into my life! I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up - so why to do it all!
Natalie, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Fashion Stylist?
I only started as a fashion stylist recently- with the opportunity from Stella and Dot. I love to travel and want to do more of that while earning an income. I want to live and experience cultures, but I also have to pay the bills lol.
Who is your inspiration in life Natalie? How do you keep inspired?
I am inspired by so many things. It can be my family one day or an article on the internet or great photography. Keep your eyes open, and a positive mind and inspiration are all around.
We all make mistakes Natalie; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Fashion Stylist; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Well just in general with any career or job - I think setting good boundaries and having good communication with co-workers/clients is key. I had a friend/colleague I had worked for me once and needless to say because I didn't set strong boundaries from the beginning she felt she could take advantage of me and my business - needlessly to say we don't speak anymore!
Natalie, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Fashion Stylist, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
With this business the more, the merrier- I live to have people try on the products and engage with them. Having a wonderful online presence and great products help. I prioritise by those who are most interested in the products and feed off my enthusiasm for what I do. You are feeling good and having fun so am I !!
Please tell us, Natalie , about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Stylist?
I think it's balancing time between my career as Massage Therapist and creating time to engage with my clients on this new venture os personal stylist.
Natalie, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
There are always going to be ups and downs at work - you're entitled to your opinion as am I. I think the challenge that I have faced has people recognise when you have a great product made of quality it's going to cost more so persuading people to invest your money in quality pieces.
Natalie, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Stylist. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Just take the initiative to invest in me. When you do something for yourself to make life changes, you feel pretty proud and look forward to what the possibilities of your life can become!
Natalie, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Working with Stella and Dot Nd being a personal stylist lets me Taylor and create looks based on your style. It's great to be able to do that for someone and to introduce them to possibilities they never thought they would take a chance on.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Stylist?
Find a product you love. Wear it- share it. Be in love with what you do and what you sell - then it will just become it second nature to talk about it. It sells itself!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
The company is already in the works with collaborations and talents to bring to their stylist. I think they would be open to it.
Now for the best part Natalie! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
