Stella Scott

Ms. Stella Scott, Opera Singer

Why “skin care now” and not “beauty now”, or “cosmetics now” or even “eczema now? Well, I’m into the holistic approach to life and since our skin plays a much more important role for our overall well being than people are usually aware of I want to give my take on beauty and health, and how beauty is a consequence of knowing how to take care of your skin.

Born with a disability.

Since I was a teenager my interest in taking care of myself has always been one of my highest priorities. My skin was very dry. But most important; I was born with a disability in my feet usually referred to as clubfeet. In simple layman terms one could say that the Achilles’ tendon is too short and you have to lengthen it surgically over time, while the child is growing. In severe cases you need to do that many times while growing up, and in very severe cases you have it on both feet, otherwise you would say club foot. I was a very severe case.

But very fortunate!

I was also extremely fortunate as I was born in Sweden where medical care is free to all it’s citizens and one of the world’s foremost orthopedic experts at the time happened to live and research in the same city my grandparents lived. (I lived in Stockholm with my mother, but with all my operations my grandparent where always close by. What a blessing!) Dr von Rosen traveled excessively and lectured all over the world. He was and still is a legend in this field and I can’t tell you how immensely grateful I am for being cared for by such a man. I didn’t know then that his wife was an opera singer, and I’ didn’t know that I, Stella Scott, was to become one too.

Music by great, yet forgotten women

I love performing music by great female composers, oftentimes forgotten. Clara Schumann has lately had a revival. When I found her though, hardly anyone had heard anything by her pen. In Sweden I have been a proud pioneer of performing classical works written by women.

Performing Cherubinos aria Non so piú from Mozart opera Il matrimonio di Figaro

It is my dry skin, my life on stage with all the cosmetic experience you get there and the experience of being a professional performer, with a disability, that has resulted in this blog. The performer whether a dancer, singer, actor, mime artist, clown or other, is totally reliant on the functions of the whole body. When the body does not perform well you can’t perform. But this is true for anyone working hard. As soon as you feel a little down in your body everything becomes more difficult. I want to help out, and I know I can.

But apart from opera singing my career also includes dancer (Yes, you read it right), actor, lecturer, professor as well as being a trained coach and gestalt therapist with over 30 years of performing, teaching and clinical experience in my private practice.

Right now I live in Malmö, Sweden with my life time partner and in my free time I love dancing, reading, take part of other artists work, travel, exploring the spiritual parts of reality, all in combination with building financial freedom. My curiosity is endless and everything I put my hands on I research extensively. I also want to inform you about my “spelling disorder”. If you react on bad spelling or crocked grammar the reason is that Swedish is my first language when it comes to writing. I still might have something useful to say to you though. 😉

One of many important things to me is that I seek to inspire working women and artist of all disciplines to create enough money to be able to pursue their life and art comfortably. The smartest way I have found so far is Network Marketing. I joined my first company in 1998 and found my current company 2009 where I’m now building a functioning organization that actually creates revenue. Oh happy dance! 🙂

Every once in a while my philosophy on money and riches, human rights or someting else close to my heart, might show up in a blogpost. Those posts you will find under the category “Off Topic“. I truly believe we can all be a part of “The solution” if we choose to take that stand. If you feel the same way maybe you would like to join my team? When you are ready send me a note – I’ll be back with you in no time!

I salute you with a tribute to the beauty of life by Clara Schumann.
Your visit is much appreciated, enjoy your stay!

How great to hear you sing again! I so look forward to seeing you live again, as you singing always touches me. Few things can reach above and beyond all barriers like music. 🙂

    🙂 So true Matilda! It really is my main vehicle for communication. Opens doors people didn’t even know where closed.

Hi Stella, what a beautiful voice you have! Do you still sing in operas or have you given that up for your home business?

    Many thanks for your kind words Julieanne! Oh, I still sing. As a matter of fact my business is to support my singing. That is why I started in the first place. To be an opera singer is a very expensive profession. 🙂

Stella,
What a beautiful voice and life story. It’s inspiring to see that you are not one dimensional, that you can combine your love and talent for the arts with a solid vision for financial success using network marketing as the vehicle. Awesome combination! Thanks for sharing your vision and your voice with the world.

Happy New Year Stella, you are an inspiring writer and I am grateful to have met you through the blog challenge. For me too, English is not my first language, it is Dutch, so my spelling and grammar are also not always proper. However this does not mean we cannot express ourselves!! Good luck with your blog!

Stella your voice and spirit are beautiful! Your story, experiences, and insight will no doubt help many performers – in fact, women from all walks of life – who value their health and want it to show. Likewise, they can model what you’ve done and follow your guidance on how to transition into a profitable business model. Warm regards-
Eryn McCormick

    Stella Scott · January 2, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    Thank you so much for those words Eryn! Any encouragement when traveling a new road, as with this blog is alway welcome, and I can sense that came from you heart. I wish you a glorious 2013! 🙂

    Yes Jodene, it has been quite a ride with a very, shall I say “interesting”, start here on earth. 🙂

Thanks for stoping by Abigail!

Actually we lived in Stockholm, but my grandparent where in the right place!

What would I do without the spelling programs? They are not perfect, but they sure help out. My mother is a writer and she says not to worry as “writers and children to writers cant spell”. She is right really, spelling is not an art, writing is!
😉

You are spot on about the Network Marketing and women. We do it constantly, we just can’t help ourselves, so why not turn it into business?

Hi Stella,

I was just thinking when reading your story about the doctor who was right there in your town when you needed him that isn’t it amazing how things can line up so perfectly in our lives?

I always admire people like yourself who when English isn’t your first language just go all out to bring useful information to people that can be of great benefit to them even if there’s an occasional spelling mistake. I read somewhere once about how if we wait until we’re perfect that we rob the world of what we have to share that’s of value now.

You mention network marketing, it always amazes me how more women don’t really seem to understand how it works and what a powerful vehicle it can be to give women choices in their lives. When you think about it, network marketing is simply recommending and promoting something you like and we all do that every day, so we might as well get paid for it!
