This year I was invited to the annual Simply Stylist event here in NYC. It was held at the Yotel hotel on the west side in Midtown.
Simply Stylist : Founded in 2009, Simply Inc. is a beauty and fashion brand consultant
Our host for the day was none other than the fabulous Catt Sadler from E! Entertainment. The day was filled with speakers, influencers, entrepreneurs, reality stars and fellow bloggers like: Lauren Bushnell, Claire Sulmers of Fashionbomb Daily, Lilliana Vasquez from the Today Show, Vanessa Simmons, Kattanita of With Love Love From Kat, Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior and many more. It was great to hear from each speaker as they shared their experiences, trials and success over the years. The event overall was eye-opening, inspiring, enlightening and empowering. I enjoyed speaking and connecting one on one with some of the guest speakers– Liliana Vasquez, Claire Sulmers even our host Catt Sadler. Their words of wisdom and advice were admirable and inspiring. I know that I’ll utilize these tools and apply them to my blog, my growing business and in life. I’m grateful and humbled for the experience and the invite. It was a true pleasure to meet fellow Ladybosses and connect with a few. I look forward to connecting and collaborating with many more of you soon! I love meeting and connecting with fellow bloggers, lady bosses and entrepreneurs. Please feel free to write to me or leave a comment below. If your in the city I would love to meet for lunch or even coffee, and discuss possible collaboration ideas.

“ When women support each other, incredible things happen.”
“Hustle hard and Stay humble.”
The quotes above are true statements, that I believe in and what I’ve applied in my life and business. They are also reasons behind why I joined the Chloe + Isabel community. Today, I’m sharing with you all about Chloe+ Isabel, the company, what they’re all about and why I joined C+I.
Chloe + Isabel is a jewelry +lifestyle brand+ pioneer of social retail, dedicated to empowering the next generation of women entrepreneurs.
Chantel Waterbury, CEO+Founder, conceived Chloe + Isabel as a place where smart, creative and confident women could play a significant role in creating an innovative new business model where they were at the center. Chloe + Isabel is both a brand and opportunity that combines elements of direct sales, retail and eCommerce with the sole purpose of providing a more meaningful experience to the modern woman. My mission was, and remains to this day, to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs through social retail.
Chloe + Isabel is the opportunity I wish I had when I was a young, ambitious woman with the goal of one day being my own boss. Today, I see in our Merchandisers that same drive I had when I first stepped out on my own, moving away from home at the age of 13 to pursue my education. I began working and saving up for school, and ultimately turned to a direct selling opportunity which paid my way through college. While it allowed me to make the money I needed, and gave me confidence in running my own business, I would have loved to have built my resume with an even wider set of skills, as well as been connected to a community of like-minded women.
It had taken me years to climb the corporate ladder and gain the skills I needed to run my own fashion business. Here was a chance to share my knowledge with today’s women so they wouldn’t have to wait, or potentially never get the exposure they needed. I wanted to help them reach their goals, whether they were financial or skill-based. We can be her stepping-stone or her destination. Chloe + Isabel was created to be a brand people would love, and more importantly, an opportunity our Merchandiser could believe in.
C+I’s mission: ” Our mission is to help tackle the financial needs of the modern woman- to provide the training and tools to accomplish her goals, whatever they may be.”
My reasons for joining the Chloe+ Isabel Community:
My initial reasons for becoming part of Chloe + Isabel was because I had a strong passion and love for Fashion and jewelry. And after I saw the jewelry, I immediately fell in love. Soon after, I learned it was much more. It was a community that supported, empowered, inspired and motivated Something that I try and strive to do on a daily. We all have the same purpose in life, and I’m all about supporting that purpose and helping others reach their goals and be successful. The Chloe+Isabel model is something that I feel everyone can learn from. Life is all about learning and growing, it’s a daily process. Having never owned a business, let alone a jewelry business, i’ve taken what I’ve learned at C+I and have created something that’s truly empowering and inspiring. Without this opportunity that C+I provided me, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It goes far beyond the jewelry, it’s an opportunity for women to take their creative spirit and turn it into an opportunity towards success. I’ve met so many amazing women, LadyBosses that have been quite influential and inspiration in my life. I feel i’ve grown a lot both personally and professionally over the years. I am the woman I am today because of what I’ve learned with C+I. My confidence has grown tremendously, and I’ve learned to take more creative risk to grow my business. My experience at Chloe+Isabel has enriched my abilities to network and communicate while also providing valuable social media skills. I’ve learned so much in just 2 years and I continue to daily. I’m turning my dreams into a reality because of Chloe +Isabel. Chloe+Isabel has helped me take my career to a whole new level. I’m truly thankful and grateful for the experience and opportunity. Just as C+I has opened my eyes, by empowering and inspiring me, I hope I can do the same for you.
