Job Title: Partner Sales

What do you do in your daily life that is different than before you worked at Cents of Style?

Before I worked here I was locked into a strict 8-5 job, I was limited during that time obviously in a job I didn't truly have my heart in. In my daily life that is different is I have a flexible schedule and a job and company I love working for. I get to stay at home with my baby (though sometimes a challenge), but it's something I'd always hoped to do.

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

You won't find a company like Cents of Style. First things first...have you worked for a company where you don't even know what the purpose or company mission statement is? Either because you don't care or because you don't really have buy in to it. Hi. I have. This is where COS is different: you know the purpose, you know the mission statement and how you fit into it. We review all of this, including our core values, once a month. You have the opportunity to have total buyin to what you are doing here at COS to help women and yourself lead bold and full lives, or you have a way out with no judgement if it's not for you. I also love that there are all sorts of fun incentives, activities, culture and empowerment programs that you get to be a part of. Not to mention I get to work with some of my closest friends and on a flexible schedule. It makes you want to work hard for what you get to do here!! hands down my favorite job!

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

My favorite one is HUSTLE. I love the word, I love the meaning, I live by it. Having a sports background the only thing you ever did was hustle and give it your all. I think that has helped in my work life to hustle and get things done. 

What do you tell others about Cents of Style who have never heard about it?

We aren't just your average fashion/accessory/clothing site. We strive to empower women to lead bold and full lives through what we do.

Tell me how COS empowers you?

Just knowing you work for someone that works so hard at achieving what she's set out to do and takes chances inspires me and that is the biggest way COS empowers me.

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

Initially I took this side job to help earn money towards my IVF, It helped and we are now blessed with a beautiful baby girl. I continue to put a lot of what I earn toward our next IVF :)
