For those that may not know me personally, I wanted to take a moment tonight and share with you my WHY. Why I chose to become a LuLaRoe consultant. I’m a former middle school history teacher turned stay at home mom that took the plunge in October 2016 to become a LuLaRoe consultant. I have an almost 3 year old son, Judson, and soon to be 9 month old daughter, Marguerite (“Maggie”).
The past few years I’ve become “Mommy,” or MOM, as Judson often says. I love those two little people so much I can’t remember what life was like before my husband and I had kids. But my mom role had taken over so much that I forgot who ROBYN was. So, yes, I may have started as a LuLaRoe consultant to be able to stay home with my munchkins, contribute to my family financially, expand my LLR wardrobe ;), but mostly I did it for ME. To have something for me again to work on and be proud of. And you know what? I’m amazed at how much I’ve come to love this job.
One of the most rewarding parts about being a teacher that I’ve missed so dearly is hearing from a student that I’ve made a difference in their life. Whether in an end of the year note, running into them at a nail salon a couple of years later, or receiving a message on Facebook this past August from a student I taught back in 2005. What does this have to do with being a LuLaRoe consultant you may ask? I just began this journey in December 2016 when I on boarded and have been blessed with some amazing customers that love LuLaRoe as much as me. I’ve started getting more e-mails, messages, and even phone calls from you all that make me feel like I’m doing more than just sell amazing clothes. Whether a first time buyer has excitedly messaged me how much she loves her first outfit, or I receive a call from someone that needs help navigating my site and finding my albums, this job for ME is starting to have meaning because of YOU. I talked with a new customer yesterday who’s been wanting to try LuLaRoe for a while and finally did this week. She had the biggest smile on her face sharing with me how many compliments she’d received on her leggings and how comfortable they were. That felt SO good to hear! That is what LuLaRoe is about. Making women feel beautiful and confident in their clothes regardless of shape, size, age, etc.
Whether you have on LuLaRoe today, or plan on wearing it tomorrow, I hope you feel as beautiful, confident, and comfortable as I do when I wear my LuLa. Even if I haven’t washed my hair in a couple of days, ran out of time to put on makeup, have random baby stuff on me from goodness knows what, LLR is sure to put a smile on my face. And next time you are out and spot someone wearing LuLaRoe, go over and compliment her. I guarantee you will bring a smile to her face and it may be exactly what she needed to hear that day 🙂
Thanks for letting me share with y’all tonight!
P.S. This picture is of me after receiving my FIRST shipment of LuLaRoe inventory! I still get giddy with excitement when UPS shows up 🙂
