LuLaRoe || Why Would I Want To Be a Fashion Consultant?

I’m sure that many of you have heard of LuLaRoe at some point or another, whether you know a consultant and have purchased from them, or someone let you feel their buttery soft leggings? Maybe, just maybe, I’m wrong and you’ve never heard of LuLaRoe, well let me take this time to do a quick introduction and tell you why, LuLaRoe is for me.

LuLaRoe is a company that prides itself on creating beautiful clothes in a variety of patterns and styles in sizes XXS-3XL, or 00-22+, as well as children’s and men’s styles. LuLaRoe is only sold through pop ups by Fashion Consultants in the United States. Each print is only rendered 5,000 times then it is discontinued, so those leggings you were eyeing last week? May have been the last time you ever see them, so in conclusion- if you need them, buy them now, or hunt for them forever! They carry a variety of shirts, dresses, skirts, leggings, kimonos and more, so so much more, all of which I’m obsessed with.

Since patterns and prints are of limited quantity,  each consultant has their own unique inventory. This creates exclusivity, even if your bestie is selling, you two aren’t technically competing as your inventory will vary greatly!  In turn your customers have this obsession to find that perfect Carly dress or Irma tunic. Of course, all this turns into potential income for the Fashion Consultant.

Income for my family. Of course everyone wants to make money to bring home, to spend on our babies and significant others. What I don’t want is to be away from my very young children 40+ hours every week. I want something different for myself, and my family.

You may be wondering why a woman who has her Bachelors in the Science of Nursing, a registered nurse and now a nurse manager would want to take on something like LuLaRoe? Well, I’m a dreamer, and I don’t stop there, I chase my dreams down until they are reality. I’ve always been this way. I dream of a happier, less stressful job for myself. One that doesn’t drive off of life and death. Nursing as a profession is difficult, and when you are an empath, even more so – I feel everyone’s pain. This usually equates to feeling tired, sad and drained. Leaving very little for my family when I return home. I’m tired of having so little of myself left to care for my own family, so little patience and energy. They deserve more from me, I am their mother and spouse. They are my everything.

This is my opportunity to change my life. To go with my gut, to go with my dream to be my own boss, to be there for my family, to have financial freedom and flexibility. This is my why. Why I took the leap and filled out my application six weeks ago. Why I nervously filled out and applied for credit for my initial investment. I’m not going to lie, it felt like so much money, but then I realized, who in this world is more worth the investment than yourself?

This second week of September is big. I see myself Onboarding this week! I’ve watched the calls coming into other consultants waiting to onboard and the dates are getting so very close to my 7/22/16 application date. I’ve prepared my office, gotten rid of fabric I’ve hoarded for years, boxed away the tie dye and purses, hung large racks to hold 300+ in LuLaRoe inventory. I have gotten my credit lines, I have opened my business banking account, I’ve looked at shipping, I’ve opened my group LLR MAMA shopping page and my LLR MAMA Consultant page, I started my LLR MAMA Instagram page and have been sharing with all those around me the opportunity that is about to unfold for me. Why do I want to share? Because I want you to be inspired. I want you to want for yourself!

This business is what you make of it. It’s not going to be easy, it’s going to be time consuming, it’s going to take work… Hustle. I want this business to give me financial freedom, I want to show other women that they too, can take their lives into their own hands and create a profitable job working out of their home. I want to clothe women of all sizes in clothing that makes them feel beautiful. Clothing that fits everybody. I want to be a leader, I want to teach others how they too can prosper, how all our dreams can be attainable.

Peace, Love & LuLaRoe
