Jacy Stolem, Malta, Montana
My name is Jacy Stolem from Malta Montana. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 15 years, together for 19 years. We have 3 beautiful children Chayana 16, Hunter 11, Trace 5 (no I didn’t plan the age gap haha). We have 7 animals and yes live in city limits (4 cats, no mice, 3 dogs). As if we are not busy enough, we decided that we needed another home business. haha.
I have been selling Avon for almost 15 years, and when I heard that my Alison’s Pantry rep was going to hang it up, I contacted her and let her know that I was interested. After a lot of measuring and arguing the rest is history. I have been with the company for a year now and I can say it is one of the easiest companies to work for. I love having a completely different product at my finger tips; plus we love food. I love the fact I don’t have to go grocery shopping as much and the convenience of the products. We love the pickle chips, the chicken stuffed products, and all the snacks like gummies, nuts and candy.
My biggest tip for being successful is COMMUNICATION; calls, text, email and Facebook. I remind people of orders on multiple levels and also use the notes feature in my phone. If I am at the post office and someone says, “Oh I have an order,” I quickly type name and order AP, (because of multiple business I do need to specify haha). Another big thing is customer service. No, that person ordering might not be your favorite, but it’s an order and your business. So when people ask me how I do everything I am involved in, I tell them my family backs me and helps every step of the way. So you have an idea of my involvement in business and community, here are my duties: I sell Avon, Sass N Frass, and Alison’s Pantry. My daughter sells Paparazzi and Lipsense. My husband works for the local ready mix, and I am the president of our local Merchants committee that is in charge of all store fronts and special promotions, including the Christmas calendar of events. I am the secretary of Cattlewomen’s and still manage a clean home and children schedules. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Thanks all and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year
