The Business of LuLaRoe from a Mommy Perspective
I didn’t know where I would be a year and half ago. I’m not sure I knew if I would really make it in this business. I’m not typically one of those people that is good at selling things to others. However, here I am. To give a little history about me….I am Mom to two wonderful babies. I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old. They are my complete world as I am their only world. I am a single parent, I work full time, I am attending school full time to work on my DBA in addition to running my LuLaRoe business. As any single parent or parent in general I struggled to make ends meet. It is scary not knowing what tomorrow will be like. Though I had a good job, it still was not cutting it. I felt the stress was getting to me as I am sure many others can relate to me. Then I met LuLaRoe. Initially I was not sure what to make of the company as I was afraid it would be some fad. I did not Know it would change my entire world.
I work hard at the business do not get me wrong, this is not an easy company to get into and just make money from. You have to work the business and really put yourself out there. However, today I am not scared. I know tomorrow my kids will be taken care of. For me the goodness of the company does not end at the financial aspect, it only begins. The confidence that I have about myself today compared to a year ago has done a complete turn around, I feel good in what I am wearing and feel that it looks good on me. I no longer have to tug at my pants or shirt to make myself feel comfy. As no person should. Sizes no longer have a meaning to me. So what if I wear 3xl or a xxs, if it looks good wear it, I say!
I know that there have been a lot of criticisms on the company but for those that are still completely in love with it, please continue to be. I am not the top in the business and may never be but I am pretty awesome in my house. My daughter is proud of me and I feel proud knowing I am setting a good example, not just through a good work ethic but showing her it’s okay to dress funky, fun and be beautiful completely covered.
This company has truly changed my life, I have made so many amazing friends and helped my family so much that I cannot wait to see what the future holds. Since this company has helped me and my family so much I would like to make others day too and show them just how amazing the company is. I would like to giveaway two outfits to two amazing women out there that are working moms in the home or out of the home. Let’s face it, being a parent male or female is hard and we need to give ourselves a break every so often and feel pampered.
Thank you to all the shoppers who help keep my family going.
