Selling Lula Roe — Is it for you?
It was a hard no for me, mainly because my husband was not on board because he KNOWS me. Likely better than I know myself. Listen I am a LuLa Roe LOVER. I signed up to become a business consultant with them back-end of FEBRUARY of 2016, and just a few weeks ago got the call to sign up. These are my reasons, but please if you are considering becoming a consultant read all the comments from consultants leaving or regretting their decision down at the end of my post.
Here are Three reasons why I decided not to sell LuLa Roe:
- LuLa Roe investment is significant. And scary. They have some great policies in effect to combat that first investment, and I will say my closet full of comfy LuLa Roe is a testament to how well this stuff sells.. but never the less it is a sum up front to even get out of the gate. Husband wasn’t fond of locating said upfront cost risk. To ” be drowning in leggings,” he told me to be exact. While we could have made it work, I just was not comfortable putting money towards this sort of risk.
- I don’t want to have to hustle my Irmas or leggings. I know I just said the clothing sells itself. I mean hello limited prints, comfy fits, and makes everyone look good while feeling like they wear pajama’s all day. Yeah – But listen. I love the mall. I may not go to it much, and I may online shop my life away, but I like variety and shopping around. I don’t want a closet entirely of LuLa Roe, and I know this would happen to me. I would be a walking business card. It is still a lot of work, you are not the GAP, and people just stroll right up to you and buy your stuff- YOU have to WORK WORK WERK!
- Speaking of work. Do I see myself doing this long-term, short-term? What? Hobby? I wanted SO badly to sell Lula Roe, and I still side eye my husband every time a new lula lovely hits my doorstep — because I WANTED TO BE THE ONE TO SELL IT. But he knows me. LAWD this man knows me and that I would fizzle out after hitting my initial goals, and probably give up after a few years. Which would be fine, but in my sleep deprivation state, and no idea where to store HUNDREDS of inventory pieces, I chickened out. Because as much as I point fingers at my husband– if I wanted to sell trendy cotton clothing — I would be doing it already. I was passionate but once I waited months to try to sell, I felt like a small fish consultant a huge ocean and decided to chicken out. or pass. Which ever. It wasn’t for me. I do not even like the clothes anymore.
Knowing what I know on the other side- the Company is incredible, family oriented, loving on their consultants, and shower them with resources, love, and help to run their own clothing business’. IT really is a great opportunity, Just not an opportunity for me. Read the comments people. Read the comments below.
Update: still really glad I didn’t sign up. Almost 10 months later. Why? I don’t even want to buy the clothes anymore and it lost its appeal to me. See my husband just knows me and my crap attention span 😉
