I have been a small business owner since 2010. As an Independent Stylist for Stella & Dot, I am able to give my customers and hostesses a personal styling experience at a time and place that is convenient for them. I can work my business around my other activities – teaching, traveling, blogging, and spending time with friends and family. I absolutely love being my own boss and setting my own schedule, and nothing makes me happier than a customer who is delighted with her new jewelry and accessories!
Today I will be supporting one of my favorite small, local businesses, Marlo Miller Boutique. Marlo has the most fabulous collection of dresses, jackets, tops, and tunics in Houston, Texas. I have been shopping her boutique for about six months, and I love everything I’ve bought from her. She carefully curates each collection in her store, from my favorite tummy-control leggings to the cutest tops evah from a company called Ivy Jane, making each shopping experience unique. I have ascended to a whole new level of cuteness since I started shopping MMB!
I hope you will think about shopping small businesses today, whether in-person or online. Behind each small business is a person who loves what she does and enjoys providing exceptional service to her customers. When you shop a small business, you get personal service from someone who is an expert in his industry and who offers clients something they can’t get anywhere else – a relationship that goes beyond the purchase of a particular product or service.
If you would like to support my small business, please visit my personal Stella & Dot website here. We have an amazing Black Friday Sale going on through midnight tomorrow. I am grateful for each person who buys jewelry and accessories from me – you allow me to share my best self with the world, and that is truly what being a small business owner is all about.
