Meet our Gemstone of the Week: Jennifer Clavadetscher, Senior Stylist!
Question and answer with our #SDGemstones Gem of the Week, Jennifer Clavadetscher of Wilmington, NC.
I found Stella & Dot by accident shortly after we launched in the UK in 2011. All 3 of my kids were in school full-time and I was looking for a part-time job where I could still be home if the kids needed me. I had been tweeting about my husbands novel and kept coming across Stella & Dot on twitter, I had never been to a trunk show or seen the jewelry. After a quick meeting with my sponsor, I joined and haven’t looked back. I’ve since relocated back to the US, I love that I have the flexibility to move with my business and be able to provide extra income for my family. I’ve even just purchased a much needed second car!
My financial goal when I became a stylist was to pay off a credit card and have my own spending money. Now, my goal is to be a significant financial contributor to our family. My husband had a job change which resulted in a pay cut.
Tell us about you or a few things about your life outside of Stella & Dot (hobbies, career, family, etc.).
I love cooking. Spending time creating delicious food is like therapy for me. It’s an important aspect of who I am. I also enjoy our impromptu family dance parties!
Tell us what brings you #SDJoy from your Stella & Dot business.
I love that my work is flexible. But most of all, I love talking to women (& men!) about how Stella & Dot has helped me support my family and become a more happy, joyful, positive person.
I never thought I could grow my business from scratch, but now I have a customer base of over 100 in my new city. I’ve even been sponsoring again!
Tell us what you find beautiful in your everyday life.
Beauty comes in all forms. I think the most beautiful thing is when my kids are kind not only to each other, but to strangers as well. Makes me a proud mamma!
Be positive, be patient, and be persistent!
