Quite honestly, direct sales and LuLaRoe found me, and it found me when I needed it most. I’ve been self-reliant all of my life and have supported myself financially ever since leaving home at 18. Having children, we made the decision for me to stay home. Ultimately, it was me who made the final decision because my husband only wants me to be happy. I chose this life but it’s been hard for me at times. I struggle with feeling as if I’m not doing enough and that I’m not good enough.
Sometimes I daydream about the career I thought I’d have by now because I never saw myself at home. But all of those exciting thoughts quickly change to anxiety as I begin to think about daycare. It’s a life I’ve chosen and one I wouldn’t change, but it is hard for me at times. Finding that happy balance has proven more difficult than I had imagined. You see, I want it all. Haha, but don’t we all though?!
Mom Group Evolution with LuLaRoe
I studied the LuLaRoe culture for about 6 months before choosing a sponsor and deciding to submit paperwork, and do you know what I saw? I saw my mom group evolve completely and it was amazing to witness. We went from happily sharing photos of our growing bellies, to only showing photos of our children for the longest time. With LuLaRoe, we finally got to where we were showing photos of ourselves WITHOUT OUR CHILDREN. Our beautiful December babies suddenly weren’t being used as a way to hide our post baby bodies! I saw so much body love because of LuLaRoe and I was in awe of it. It was such a transformation to witness. A beautiful one.
Staying Home with a Graduate Education
I chose to sign up for LuLaRoe because I saw how great the clothing made me feel, but even more so because I wanted to bring that to other women. I wanted to help them feel beautiful again. I’ve had the pleasure of helping countless women to feel beautiful for the first time in their lives. It hurts my heart to know they’ve never felt so confident before, but I’m thankful to be part of it. LuLaRoe helped give me back so much of my long lost confidence. Confidence in my body, but even more confidence in my mind and well-being.
The decision to stay home despite having a Master’s in Public Health was a difficult choice, but simultaneously the easiest one I’ve ever made. The insanely expensive framed paper on our wall is something I treasure, but it taunts me as well. Following that dream is something I’ll never regret, but not contributing financially due to my choices is hard for me. Yes, I know I was contributing by staying home, but it’s simply not the same for ME. Instead of feeling accomplished by this goal, I feel I’ve instead invited this big, dark cloud to hang out above my family. That’s a really hard pill to swallow. It’s an expensive monthly reminder of what I *could* be doing. I will never regret furthering my education but I do wish to help remove the burden of my student debt.
The confidence that LuLaRoe has helped me find is that I can be happy, follow my dreams, and contribute financially to my family. The thought of sending my children to childcare sends me to a frightening level of anxiety, but I needed something for me. I needed to use my brain. I needed to have adult interaction outside of the home on occasion that didn’t involve a playdate. Having the opportunity for such interactions without feeling guilty for spending time away from my family has been amazing for me. For all of us, really.
It’s Not About What, It’s About Why
I’ve never been in love with direct sales before and I was always that friend to avoid any party, yet here I am LOVING every step of this process. Do you know why? Because it called to me and because I enjoy it. It called to me and I listened. This isn’t about LuLaRoe and this isn’t about making money, this is about enjoying the process and doing what makes you happy. Money can be made doing anything – the challenge is finding happiness and fulfillment while doing it.
This is about doing what makes you happy. It’s about being aware and open enough to see an opportunity when it presents itself. Listen closely to what that internal voice. The biggest changes come when we stop to listen, and you never know what greatness will follow. LuLaRoe found me. I followed my instinct and this is where it has taken me. Thankfully I listened.
The Day to Day, My Way
With that said, I now spend my days with two of my most favorite and treasured people in the world. I work from home helping to make others feel as beautiful as they are and I — USE MY BRAIN! Not to mention, I’m also paying those freaking student loans off one loan at a time! LuLaRoe has helped me regain my confidence, realize my current purpose, and know I can do things my own way.
