"Browse commerce is just done': Stella & Dot founder and CEO Jessica Herrin

The Glossy Beauty Podcast

Millions of Americans are still out of work as the coronavirus pandemic's ripples through the economy, and many are unlikely to return to the jobs they held a few months ago.

A few companies -- including Stella & Dot, Ever and Keep -- have stepped into that vacuum, offering gig economy work for people willing and able to sell cosmetics, clothes and fashion accessories.

"We really started growing when unemployment was at 8 and 9%. And in some ways you could say the growth of our business was somewhat counter-cyclical, because when people had a greater financial need, not only did you see more people join, but you saw the people that did join work more and earn more," Stella & Dot founder and CEO Jessica Herrin said on the Glossy Podcast of the 2008 final crisis.

The company counts about 30,000 "ambassadors," though the number of people actively selling on a monthly basis is between 8,000 and 10,000, according to Herrin.

Prior to Covid-19, Stella & Dot, Ever and Keep went through a $50 million tech revamp to connect sellers with a digital platform (inspired by Shopify, Pinterest and Polyvore) allowing them to set up a curated selection of products -- a storefront, essentially -- which they can then email or text to customers.

That foresight has been key to surviving as a business during coronavirus.

"Browse commerce is just done," Herrin said. "Who wants to go to a website and search and come up with a thousand options and look for reviews that may or not be real, rather than get a curated assortment texted to you with personalized recommendations?"

07 Jessica Herrin - Drawing Lines Between Work Life and Personal Life with the Founder of Stella & Dot

The Mentor Files

Jessica Herrin was on a mission when she set out to create the direct sales accessory company, Stella & Dot. For her, it wasn’t as much about the product she wanted to create, but rather a movement. At the time, Herrin had already launched a wedding gift registry site which sold to The Knot for $78 million. She balanced being a mom of two daughters as she worked tirelessly to build her second company. From there, it was clear to her that she wanted to create a company that would empower and provide entrepreneurship opportunities for the modern woman.

Fourteen years after launching, Stella & Dot has paid more than $300 million in commissions to more than 50,000 stylists and Herrin has been named by Forbes as one of America’s Richest Self Made Women.

In this episode, Herrin fills us in on why she stopped trying to do it all and why women need to make a change and stop feeling guilty about their choices(“mom guilt” anyone?). She also discusses the importance of being soulfully connected to your work, how to get started building a business when you don’t have the right mentors and the importance of acting as your own venture capitalist. Herrin also shares what she calls “The 6 P’s of the Entrepreneurial Spirit” to achieve success in business and lives a happy life. More on that can be found in her latest book, Finding the Extraordinary (which we highly recommend!).

“Often times when you have the biggest struggles, it’s your greatest opportunity.” - Jessica Herrin

3. Finding Your Extraordinary with Stella & Dot CEO, Jessica Herrin

The Lifestyle Edit Podcast

In today’s episode, we talk to Jessica Herrin, CEO and founder of Stella & Dot, the social selling business that creates flexible entrepreneurial opportunities for women. While her name might not ring a bell, you’ll definitely recognise their jewellery. It’s available online and through in-home trunk shows through independent stylists who keep up 35% of the value of sales they make.

This podcast was recorded last year when we caught up with Jessica after the launch of her book, Finding Your Extraordinary: Dream Big, Live Happier and Achieve Success on Your Own Terms. The book isn’t about having it all. Instead, it focuses on having what matters most to you. It’s about how find your extraordinary career, your extraordinary happiness, your extraordinary life.

After leaving school, she worked with a series of tech start-ups before attending Stanford Business school, where, at 24 years old, she cofounded a wedding-gift registry site, which later merged with and was later sold for $78million.

When she started Stella & Dot, it was a side business while she worked full-time as a marketing manager at Dell and was pregnant with her first child. Last year, the company expanded beyond trend-led accessories to include two new brands: Keep Collective, a line of keepsake jewellery, and EVER Skincare.

Jessica has also been recognized for her business savvy by Oprah, The Wall Street Journal and countless over publications and was also honoured by Ernest & Young and Inc. 500 as a Top Entrepreneur.
