Virtual Posh N Coffee Recap: Meet the Hosts–Julia, Emma, & Jennifer

This summer, we hosted our second round of virtual Posh N Coffee events! These virtual meetings are a series of educational events hosted by Posh Ambassadors geared towards helping YOU level up your business.

We reached out to 3 rockstar virtual Posh N Coffee hosts to learn more about their host experience. Check out their responses below! Interested in becoming a host for the next round? Head to our official website.

JULIA (@jvells)

Introduce yourself, with your name + closet name, where you are from, how long you have been on Poshmark.
Hello Poshers! My name is Julia, my closet name @jvells. I’m from the amazing city of Chicago & have been Poshing for just over a year and a half.

Why did you choose to become a Posh N Coffee host, and how was your experience? 
I became a Virtual Posh N Coffee host as an opportunity to share, learn, mentor & empower other women to grow their businesses & become leaders in their own way. This experience has been a great way to connect with other Poshers around the country and to learn from each other.

What are your biggest takeaways since hosting?
My biggest takeaways so far have been that every event is unique & works best when everyone takes the opportunity to participate. Having conversations with smaller groups has helped develop ideas of pivoting our businesses in rapidly changing circumstances. The best part is celebrating each other’s wins and to support each other as we work through challenges.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to fellow Poshers interested in becoming a host in the future? 
My goal for each event is to teach others and learn something from everyone who joins the conversation. I would recommend future Posh N Coffee hosts to prepare 2-3 topics to start the conversation and allow time for open discussion. That is the part of the event where some of the best insights and laughs happen.

Anything else you’d like to share about your Posh N Coffee experience? 
I am excited to host the next one! I can’t wait to hear what others have been up to since the last conversation and learn from others who have never joined an event. 


EMMA (@emcc1)

Introduce yourself, with your name + closet name, where you are from, how long you have been on Poshmark.
I’m Emma (@emcc1 on Posh), and I have been a full-time Posher since July 2016. I live in the southwestern part of Virginia with my husband and our 2 boys. 

How did you discover Poshmark?
A friend recommended Poshmark as a great way to make money selling clothes that I no longer wore, and within just a few short days, I was hooked!

Why did you choose to become a Posh N Coffee host, and how was your experience? 
With almost 20 years of reselling experience and a background in marketing, I was so excited to have the opportunity to be a Posh N Coffee host. I felt that it was a great way to connect with fellow Poshers, something I was desperately missing during the pandemic, and share my knowledge. 

What are your biggest takeaways since hosting?
Since hosting, I have learned just how important it truly is to our business to connect and share ideas with others. I have learned so much in these few short months and never had these opportunities had it not been for Posh N Coffee. 

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to fellow Poshers who are interested in becoming a host in the future? 
If I could give one piece of advice to someone interested in hosting a Posh N Coffee, I would first tell them to “Go for it!” It is such a fun way to grow and expand your Poshmark knowledge and meet new PFF. Secondly, preparation is key. Take some time to research your weekly topic and create a list of open-ended questions to help keep the conversation flowing.


JENNIFER JONES (@duchessofmalibu)

Introduce yourself, with your name + closet name, where you are from, how long you have been on Poshmark.
My name is Jennifer Jones McIntyre, and I have been on Poshmark since January 2016 as @duchessofmalibu. I am the mother of 4 sons, and I live in Westlake Village, California.

Why did you choose to become a Posh N Coffee host, and how was your experience?
When the Posh N Coffee format started in March – like many, we thought it would only last a few weeks. But our group was unique. Many of the Poshers know each other from share groups and other online events. The group of Poshers came from all over the United States. We bonded immediately and so effortlessly. During the week, in-between Zooms, there was a lot of support in sharing or helping with sales. 

When the new meeting started – there was a lot of excitement about sales and listing strategies and well-wishes as each of us dealt with the stay at home orders mandated in our differing home states. After the scheduled Poshmark dates, I decided to continue with the weekly Zooms – we have been at it since March. Initially, I followed the agenda provided by Team Poshmark – but there were so many more questions and concerns – we had so much to share that many of our Zooms lasted almost three hours.

What are your biggest takeaways since hosting? 
Being a Posh N Coffee host has benefited me more than I imagined. Whilst I enjoy the ongoing support from fellow Poshers, I have also enjoyed the additional time I have spent with new Poshers. There can be so many questions that crop up – with each concern – each of us become more confident with our closets and our listings. I looked forward to announcing the Saturday chats on both Poshmark and Instagram, keeping the discussion active and fluent. Poshers continue to contact me through bundles or DMs, and there is never a bad question. If I am unable to offer information, I find the person who can. The essence of making lives better both economically and socially has been established through the community we build, and Poshmark offers a convenient platform towards a shareable framework of like-minded resellers.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to fellow Poshers who are interested in becoming a host in the future? 
Being a part of Posh N Coffee is more than hosting – it is full-time mentorship. The outstanding relationships I am building allow me to share my professional knowledge and expertise in this collaborative business model. I have a genuine interest in the Poshers whom I have met on Zoom, and there is a willingness on my part to help them become successful. This may be a volunteer program, but my investment in each Posher’s success has helped empower each of them to develop their strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes.
