Contestant's Case to Win
This is based on the number of votes received.
There are tons of "work from home" jobs out there, including the many direct sales jobs now in full swing with this economy, but I somehow saw something different in Stella & Dot. In 2008, I was laid off from a successful run in Advertising/Graphic Design for a little over 8 years. Although that was what my degree was in and I painstakingly worked to get that BFA, I decided after the layoff and my first child, it was time to throw in the towel for something more rewarding personally and as a mother and wife.
Stella & Dot fell into my lap. I found out that there was a local Opportunity Session just down the street from me. Could there be a bigger sign than this? The following week I went, and the rest is history.
Now, I have realized that I can mentor others, be a leader and drive my own success. While I help other women start their own successful business, I'm making amazing friends AND seeing my income grow! Suddenly, my 'fun job' is starting to pay MORE than my 'real job' did. I couldn't imagine my life like this before and now I can't imagine my life any different now.
