Ever think to yourself “My life is just not busy enough?” No? Well, I’m all about that hustle, to a fault. Like, I feel guilty each moment I’m not doing something to further my career, blog presence or help my family. Perhaps it’s a mom thing. Maybe I’m just a born entrepreneur? In any case, on top of my full-time job, full-time blog and full-time wife/mother gigs, I’ve become a LuLaRoe Retailer.
LuLaRoe has become pretty popular as of late, and it’s easy to see why. Those buttery soft leggings must be made of angel sneezes, because they are a spit of heaven. More than that, all the clothes – dresses, skirts and shirts are so, so comfortable, yet somehow very put together. I like to call it pretty athleisure.
So how did I find myself here, selling the stuff? Well, let me take you back a few years. One evening in 2014 I felt a tingling in my back, and whatever the tingling was, it didn’t feel good. Suddenly a very strong and relentless pain started in my abdomen. The pain was worse than anything I have ever experienced. In all honesty, in those moments I was wishing for death. My husband was helpless, watching my writhe in pain. Then after fifteen minutes, the pain suddenly subsided, and I was fine.
For almost two years this pain would continue. I never knew when an attack would strike, and the attacks would happen months apart or days apart. Each time I knew I had to get it checked out, but once the pain subsided I forgot. I didn’t know what was causing this pain, but I became anxious about putting anything tight around my stomach. I only wanted to wear loose-fitting clothing, but it seemed that everything I wore looked sloppy. These abdomen attacks actually continued throughout my pregnancy. Finally, two months after I had my son, I had another painful attack. This would not do, so I made an appointment with the doctor the next day. Turns out I had gallstones, and shortly thereafter, surgery to remove my gallbladder.
Though the pain left me, the desire to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothes did not. I can’t stand wearing jeans or anything that slightly resembles discomfort. Perhaps this is also because I’m a mom, and mama don’t got time for that! I’ve had a lot of friends who have entered the mompreneur club, and it is seriously never anything I had considered. However, I began to see people on Facebook and elsewhere ask “Can anyone direct me to a LuLaRoe consultant? I need an Irma!” Yep, something about LuLaRoe just seemed different… and lucrative! As I learned more, I realized that LuLaRoe had more of a franchise model than a straight network marketing model.
Then I tried on the clothes.
HOLY COW! What the what? How do I look so cute and feel so comfortable? I was sold. Through a serendipitous circumstance I was connected with my LuLaSponsor Ali, and have been on this journey ever since.
Last weekend was my official launch. I decided to do a Brunch ‘n Browse. A little waffles, some mimosas, good conversations and beautiful, beautiful clothes. We had so much fun and everyone left with something. Best of all, a dear friend gave me a hug and thanked me for doing this. She was blown away that she actually found clothes that felt good and looked good and made her feel good inside.
