What is your Cents of Style story? How did you start working here, how long have you worked here?

I was a customer for years before I started working at Cents of Style. I fell in love with the products and I loved that shoes here actually fit me! As I learned more about the company, I loved that they aimed to help women lead bold and full lives while still being very affordable. When I was given the opportunity to work at Cents of Style, I jumped on it. It was perfect timing because my kids were both in school full-time and I was beginning to feel very lonely and aimless by myself at home. This opportunity became so much more than I ever thought possible. Learning even more about the company and its values, I'm so lucky to be a part of it. I'm coming up on my one year anniversary working with Cents of Style and I am so incredibly proud to be a part of this amazing company of women who inspire me everyday by striving to lead bold and full lives themselves.

Tell me what you like about working at Cents of Style?

Cents of Style really cares about its employees and customers. Everyone is important at Cents of Style and that's something you learn very quickly. Our values help give us integrity and from there we aim to better ourselves so we can help others. The culture that has been cultivated at Cents of Style is one that is very welcoming to all and one that I'm very lucky to be a part of. They value their employees, they welcome the working mom, and they give everyone the opportunity to enrich themselves.

What is your favorite Cents of Style VALUE and what does it mean to you?

Own it. I think a lot of women tend to brush off their successes or forget that they are important too. It can seem selfish to celebrate your successes or to reach for your goals, but you have to remember that doing so helps you lead a fuller life so you can be the best person you can be. I think this value is a great reminder to "own" your successes, failures, dreams, and goals. It's definitely the one that resonates with me the most.

Think about what the money that you earn here-- what does it help you do?

The money that I earn from Cents of Style goes toward helping me and my family live bold and full lives. Traveling and enriching our children's minds has always been a priority for us and the money I earn here really helps us do that. It also helps give us peace of mind. It's nice to know that I can bring in an income without taking me away from my kids.

How do you think Cents of Style has changed your life?

Cents of Style has really enriched my life since I've been a part of the company. Not only has it given my family another source of income, it's also really helped me grow as a person as I live the values on a daily basis. I'm also constantly amazed at how much integrity there is here and how valued each and every employee is. It's nice to know that companies like this can exist and thrive.

What is your very favorite thing that you have ever gotten from Cents of Style?

I love all the trendy shoes that I am usually too afraid to pull off, but Cents of Style makes it look so easy and affordable to try out. I love our graphic tees. The prints are always beautiful and I love how they fit. I also love our Tribe bracelets. That's an easy way for me to include a few of my favorite values and phrases into my wardrobe.
