I'm Brittany. I've been married 6.5 years to a wonderful man. I stay at home with my baby girl while running my LuLaRoe business. We have everything from kimonos, shirts, dresses, skirts, cardigans, to those famous buttery soft leggings. LuLaRoe is unique in that when I order, I can order in style and size, but I don't know what print or color I'm going to get. That keeps it very exciting for my customers and I. We only make a certain number of items in every fabric and then retire the fabric. So the chances of someone having the same garment in the same size is very rare. The founders (Mark and Deann) are so positive, and uplifting. They consistently talk about how important it is to give and bless others, and they talk about their faith often, which is important to my husband and I.
When I left teaching I knew I would have to do something to supplement my income. I prayed that God would show me something that I could do and around that time, I was invited to my first LuLaRoe Party. I had never heard of LuLaRoe before, but everyone was raving about how comfortable and soft the leggings were. So, having a love for clothes like I do, I knew I had to try some. I bought a pair of leggings that day and I was hooked. As I started buying more and more clothes and learning about the company, I really felt like I needed to look more into it. I learned that LuLaRoe makes crazy comfortable, cute, and modest clothing, and I eventually started selling.
At times, balance is difficult and often leads to most "business" being done either in nap time or at night. I never want my child to feel like she is being ignored by me. So, I try to involve her into my work. I have her "help" me take pictures or cleanup after opening a new box of inventory. I am doing this business to help my family, not to take away from them. I still struggle with that balance and pray for wisdom daily. I have a schedule and try to stick with it.
I had so many doubts before starting LuLaRoe, because it's a pretty big financial investment. As time went by I just kept feeling like I needed to consider it more. I was praying for an opportunity that I could help my husband financially, while being able to stay at home with my baby. After time went by, I sat down and talked to my husband about LuLaRoe. We prayed and really sought out the Lord and His wisdom in the decision. When we had peace about it, we signed up.
It's not easy. I often think, "What did I get myself into." I'm tired and drained by the end of the day, but I remind myself that I'm doing it to better my family (even it that means long nights at times) and I'm once again, so rewarded. I ask for help and encouragement from other momma's. We all know how exhausting motherhood is, and it's also the greatest thing we will ever do. Other momma's support me, listen to me, and help me in my journey.
I love the freedom I have with LuLaRoe, and how I have a chance to make people feel good and have confidence.
I would love to see my business grow and to be able to bless people through it. I feel like my role as a mother has helped me be more understanding and positive. Being a mom is hard at times, and sometimes I just don't feel good about myself. I hope I can help other mommas feel comfortable, covered, and beautiful in the clothing.
I also now know how hard it is to shop for yourself when you have little ones with you. It's a pain to drag them out and then have to try to keep up with them....and often leaves both child and mother frustrated. With LuLaRoe, I welcome anyone into my house to shop my inventory, or they can shop online.
I also understand constantly wondering if my clothing is still going to be modest while having a toddler pulling and hanging all over me. I don't have to worry about that with LuLaRoe.
