Pros: free jewelry, flexible schedule that allows you to work as little or as much as you want
Being an independent stylist at Stella & Dot is definitely a lot of fun. Since you basically run your own business by hosting trunk shows, it is as involved as you want it to be. Personally, I hosted trunk shows throughout my time in college when I wasn't too busy, but there are people who host shows every day and make a very nice living for themselves in doing so. A typical day in this role includes contacting people to see if they would be interested in hosting a trunk show, booking trunk shows, and on days that there are trunk shows you have to set up and sell jewelry! I have learned how to effectively network to book shows and how to budget in order to generate a profit.
