being an entrepreneur....or something like that

I hit my first "Stellaversary"! I have been with Stella & Dot for one year now, and I love it!!!

This company is seriously a dream for me. I have been able to take my longest desire of owning my own boutique and meld it with my life. I think that some skeptics thought I may give up, but I like to think I blew their expectations (or lack thereof), out of the water.

Here's the deal - MattyB & BittyBeau have always been my first priority. Pretty much I put my needs on the backburner as many moms do! (Why do we do this? We all know it's not healthy). Regardless, my life as a stylist is something separate from my men that I love so much. This is a time for me, with no mommy guilt.

I battled with having "girl's night" because of the mommy guilt. The guilt of leaving the baby while I'm off having a good time. I kind of re-programmed my mind with Stella & Dot. This is a way for me to financially contribute to our household!

Enough about all that though....

What other company do you know of that:
1. allows you to give yourself a raise each month
2. sets up totally obtainable incentive programs (free trip to the BAHAMAS for you & a guest!)
3. equips you with the free training to grow your business
4. lets you set your workhours

I still work full time. I haven't "quit my day job". It's nice to know though, that I have the potential of doing my Stella & Dot job as my "day job".

So here's my question: what could you or would you do with extra income?

Here's a little video of some fellow stylists & what their "blue card" has paid for:
