I am so excited to be featuring some of the amazing stylists from my Precious Pearls team, so they can share how Stella & Dot has helped them happily style their lives.
We are currently a tribe of 103 strong & inspirational women across the U.S. We continue to grow and enjoy meeting so many wonderful women (and a few good men). We’d love to have you and help you to write the story you want. Learn more about us by watching “Our Story”. But first, let’s learn more about the amazing Caitlin Munsie and her journey with Stella & Dot.
I am thrilled to be spotlighting Caitlin, a Star Stylist, as the first in our “Meet the Tribe” series, as she was literally the first Precious Pearl out of the 103, just a little over 2 years ago. I love her story and message below, and I know you will too. Enjoy!
Who are you?
“Hi All! My name is Caitlin Munsie and I am currently a Star Stylist with Stella & Dot. I am a stay at home mom to my baby girl, Natalie, who is now 2 1/2 years old and have a baby boy arriving any day now. I have been married for almost five years to my high school sweetheart, Tim and we live in East Hartford, CT.”
Why were you looking for the opportunity?
“I came across the opportunity after my husband and I decided that I would stay home full time with Natalie. I knew I needed something to help myself get out of the house and have girl nights whenever possible!”
How did you find your business? Why did you join?
“I met Kelly when she was the stylist at my good friends trunk show. Natalie was only two weeks old, and it was my first time out of the house alone! After multiple coffee dates with Kelly, I knew this company was unbelievable and this would be a great adventure for me. I would not only be able to be an amazing mother but also dive into a fashion forward company.”
What excited you the most?
“I was most excited for the jewelry! I follow a million bloggers and fashion designers so this is a dream come true to get to style people on a regular basis!”What have been your most exciting achievements in this business?
What have been your most exciting achievements in this business?
“One of the most exciting and rewarding achievements has been to watch my team succeed. I work everyday in this business to give constant support to these girls who continuously work hard towards their goals. Of course I love the promotions and bonuses, but to have a team of successful ladies work towards a goal and achieve that goal is pretty amazing.”
What results have you seen?
“I was originally hoping to get some nights out with ladies and enjoy the free jewels. This has quickly changed to building an amazing team, contributing financially for my family and wanting to become a bigger part of this unbelievable company!”
What has the business done for your family?
“Besides what this business has allowed us to purchase for our family, it also has allowed me to grow and become a better mother and wife. Stella & Dot has given me confidence through my achievements and goals I have hit month to month, which is something I want to pass down to Natalie.”
What advice would you like to give to new stylists just beginning their career with Stella & Dot?
“My advice would be to dive right in. To start off as strong as you can by booking as many shows as you can fit into your schedule. This will only help you book more shows off of shows and get in front of as many new people as possible. Also, feel proud of your new business. Everyone will have an opinion, but feel amazing about your new adventure and wear it proudly on your sleeve!”
How many hours per week do you spend on your Stella & Dot business?
“This depends on the day/week and how good of a nap my little one gives me! I try to do at least one hour of Stella time a day. Even if that is texting or calling customers on the go or just posting something on a social media site. I have learned that if you continue to put into your business only great things will come out from it.”

What do you “love” the most about Stella & Dot
“The amazing friendships I have built with women I would have never even crossed paths with if it wasn’t for Stella & Dot bringing us together. I have made friendships stronger and now can’t imagine these girls not being in my life! I constantly appreciate the support and advice I get from ladies all over the country. Watching women cheering for other women is something you don’t see everyday, but in this business it is just a given.”
