#WCW: Stylist Liz Pereira

 

Behind every successful woman is a tribe of women who have her back, so every Wednesday, we'll feature a Stella & Dot Stylist as our #WomanCrushWednesday. Meet the women who inspire and amaze us with their stories.

This week, we're crushing on Stella & Dot Stylist, Liz Pereira who's a busy wife and mom and who joined Stella & Dot as a way to contribute to her household income while living abroad in Peru.

Why did you start your Stella & Dot business?

When my husband and I decided to move overseas to Lima, Peru, I knew that I was going to have to leave my career in law enforcement behind. However, I have always had a passion for fashion and found myself with an opportunity to do something completely different than what I was used to doing. I already knew how amazing Stella & Dot was and thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to try out!

What would you tell other people considering this opportunity?

I would say to just go for it-- you have nothing to lose! When I made the decision to become a Stylist, no matter how I looked at it, there were no negative consequences. My investment was minimal and I was able to get some gorgeous pieces that I loved. Even if all I did was one show, I would earn back my small investment and it would have been worth it. Plus, the support that you receive from the Stella & Dot community will help ensures success. 

What opportunities has Stella & Dot afforded you?

Besides my now ever-growing collection of Stella & Dot, I have also been able to contribute to my household income while living in a foreign country where I may not otherwise have been employed. I'm also currently saving for an upcoming trip to Disney with family!

How do you find time for it all? Tell us what balance looks like to you.

Staying organized and time management is key for me. I have also found it extremely helpful to get tips from other Stylists to see how they stay organized and use what works best for me. I also find flexibility to be equally important. Being overseas means that most of my Trunk Shows are online but I love to mix in an occasional in-home Trunk Show as well. If I have a particularly busy month at home, I love having the option to cut back a little on my Trunk Shows. 

What's your favorite piece in the line? What styles do your customers love?

I am loving the Rebecca Minkoff collection right now, especially the Prisma Collection. As an on-the-go mom, I can't live without my Daytripper bag- it's a must-have! My customers always love studs, Hammered Hoops and the One the Mark necklace as everyday essentials.

What else would you want people to know about Stella & Dot?

This company has given me the opportunity to support my family and make what may have been a difficult situation so much easier. It is through my Stella & Dot business that I have been able to meet so many new and amazing people and I'm so grateful for that! Also, the support I've received by the Stella & Dot community has been nothing short of amazing!

Stella & Dot affords women the opportunity for flexible income, empowerment, and an incredible network. Learn more about the opportunity here
