Our new business adventure

Being a stay at home mom can be really challenging.  If I could give advice to all stay-at- home mom’s it would be: #1 have a schedule or a routine, and #2 find a hobby, or MLM business that makes you feel like you have accomplished something.  Being a stay at home mom is so hard, especially in the beginning if you are used to working.  You no longer have something in your life that shows immediate results, you can no longer walk away saying, “wow, I am great at my job,” not because you are not, but because being a stay at home mom has a way of making the word failure appear at the front of your mind every day!  Once you think you have it down, once you feel like you have conquered the terrible two’s or the awful three’s, they hit four, and so on.  Every day, every season, is a new challenge and so far in my 10 years of being a mom most of those challenges make me feel like I have failed, or am unappreciated and a woman can not be at her best if she is always defeated!

I’ve done many business adventures in my 10 years of being a stay at home mom.  Most of them were successful for a time but then the hype died down and I lost the passion for my product.  I have been a Jamberry Nail Wrap consultant for almost two years now.  I love jams and LOVE to do parties.  I think there is nothing better than a Jamberry party, I love to give things away and play games; however, when there are no more parties being booked- it is time to move on.  My goal is to find something that will last, something that is well loved, and something that people WANT me to come and do parties for them!  While I am still planning on doing jamberry and sticking around for my faithful customers I still have, I will be moving my focus more over to LuLaRoe!

I have thought of joining LuLaroe for a while now, but had reservations of jumping into yet another business.  After a lot of prayer, we decided it would be a great thing for our family.  Not only is this something I think I will love, but I also love that my girls can join in the fun!  Doing LuLaRoe is a family business, not just an individual business!  My husband will be working with me behind the scenes to help with the business side of things, my girls will be helping as well to get shipments out and in the process, we are doing something fun as a family, they are learning how to run a business, and making profit from the business is just an extra incentive.

I am not “OFFICIAL” yet.  The way LLR works is when you complete your paperwork you are put into a queue to “onboard.”   This waiting period can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks!  When my day comes I will receive a phone call from the main office and they will order my initial inventory!  It really is a bit of a blessing that I have those weeks to get myself in order.  We need to get so many things done and organized in our home so we have space for everything!  We will have a LLR Room off the front of our house.  We have a room that used to be a garage, but was turned into a living area.  Over the next few weeks we will be transforming this room into our LLR room with paint, and fixtures and changing area!  It has a door where customers can come to straight from the driveway!  I have also begun my business page on facebook which you can find here    But there is a lot more to do!!

I am so excited about this next adventure!
