If you’re here — there's a good chance you want to work from home. But are you also looking for a career that is creative, fun, and lucrative? Believe it or not — you can have it all.
Let me introduce you to the cabi career opportunity and why you should consider becoming a Stylist.
1. You’ll Always Look Great
When you look good, you feel good, it’s that simple. When you’re a cabi stylist not only do you get major discounts on their fabulous clothing, but you’ll also have the knowledge and training on how to combine the pieces, so you'll always look like a million bucks. Plus, what better way to promote your business than by wearing the goods that you sell?!
2. It’s Lucrative
With a lot of direct sales companies you're selling items that have a low price point, so it's difficult to earn a substantial income. But with clothing you have a much higher price point, so your sales will be higher, which means your overall earnings will be higher. Learn how much you can earn with the cabi calculator — here you can input hours, sales, and team members to get a realistic idea of how much you can make.
3. Flexible Schedule
With the cabi business model you decide when and how much you’re going to work, which really is the reason most people want to work from home.
4. Woman-Owned Company
Cabi is a truly a woman-owned and run company. It was started back in 2002 with Carol Anderson and Kimberly Inskeep, along with 10 of their close friends who are still involved with the company today. Today cabi has more than 3,000 Stylists and over 80,000 Hostess in the United States and Canada.
5. A Company with Heart
In 2005 cabi launched the Heart of cabi Foundation in response to Hurricane Katrina in an effort to empower disadvantaged women at home and abroad. Since that time, cabi has donated more than $43 million in financial support and clothing to women in need. But the giving doesn't stop there. In 2015 cabi started the W.E. are cabi Program where for every new stylist that signs on with cabi they provide a small business loan for a woman building her own business. Since it's inception 4,836 small business loans have been funded.
6. Multiple Ways to Earn Money
With the cabi business model you can earn money in 3 different ways: 1) You can earn 25% to 33% commission on all personal sales. 2) You can build a team and earn additional commission on their sales. 3) You can sell your seasonal inventory at the end of the season for 50% off — which if you sell at least 70% of your inventory, you’ll earn $3,000. Initial startup investment is $2,570 plus shipping and applicable sales tax.
7. Fun Events
I’ve had the pleasure of attending cabi’s biannual Scoop and it is truly a blast! The Scoop is where they unveil the new spring and fall lines via a high production fashion show. Along with the show they have intensive training sessions, the shopping event (where you can purchase past season's clothing at a huge discount), cocktail parties, and much more! And did I mention the energy?! These women are passionate and when they get together it's something else – the joy and spirit these women exude is infectious and will leave you feeling energized.
8. Positive Financial Future
While a lot of direct sales companies are closing their doors, cabi continues to thrive. In fact, they’ve become the largest direct seller of clothing in the U.S. and they’ve recently expanded into Canada. Fortune Magazine did a feature on cabi saying the key to their success is the attention and detail that the stylists give to their customers. “Cabi stylists, who currently number around 3,400, are given training to show customers how to dress better, fit their clothes, and assemble looks — a level of attention the Los Angeles-based company says is the key to making its approach work.”
9. Lots of Support
When you join cabi as a Stylist you work for yourself, but not by yourself. Cabi offers their Stylist free training and marketing tools, support staff, leadership development, as well as growth opportunities and perks.
10. New Collections
Besides the spring and the fall lines, cabi also releases limited edition collections mid-season. Their most current collection is the Welcome Joy Collection and I had the opportunity to check out a few pieces. From the Welcome Joy collection I received the Lacy Track Pant and the Pamper Me Tee.
The Lacy Track Pants are so comfy, yet so sophisticated and feminine. Here they are dressed down with some sandals, but they can easily be dressed up with some heels. And the same goes for the Pamper Me Tee … it's one of the reasons I love their pieces, the versatility and functionality.
These limited edition collections also give the Stylists an opportunity to reconnect with hosts and customers, which means more opportunities to make money!
