Why Join LuLaRoe
Hey there! My name is Shelli Beals and I decided to join LuLaRoe to become a fashion consultant in August 2016. If you’re considering taking the leap and opening your own LuLaRoe boutique, then I’d love to help you with that! You can check out my story about the large impact that LuLaRoe has had on my life HERE. LuLaRoe has afforded me the chance to work from home and be present for my 4 children and husband. For the decade before I joined, I worked as a medical transcriptionist full time out of the home. I’ve been able to not only double my income, but the self growth I’ve experienced has had the biggest impact on my life. Anyone that tells you that LuLaRoe is easy money, that you sign up, post online and watch the money roll in, I would caution you to be skeptical of. Yes, it’s a great platform for the stay at home mother. Yes, it can provide you financial freedom or allow you to hit certain financial goals that work for you. Yes, it can be done online, in your home, or through popup parties. However, no, it is not a cake walk. It’s not easy money. You get out of it what you put in, like any business. I’ve poured myself into my business and each time I hit a goal, it enriches my soul. It’s a business about supporting other women, helping women feel and look beautiful, constantly educating yourself and exceeding what you thought was your potential.
The Cost to Join LuLaRoe
If you’re familiar with direct sales (which I was NOT when I joined), you may be used to hearing the phrase “kitnapper.” There are a lot of MLM companies out there where you can join immediately, purchase your kit, and then you are up and rolling. LuLaRoe is not one of these companies. The cost of your initial inventory, referred to as the “onboarding package” is no less than $3300. You also need to factor in initial expenses such as your dress form, shipping supplies, photography supplies, clothing racks, etc., which would be about a $500 initial cost.
Another cost to consider which isn’t financial, but can certainly be costly, is who you will choose to sign up under. This will be your sponsor. The role of your sponsor is to help guide you along the way, to provide you with resources in your business, and to ultimately be vested in your success. A good sponsor will follow up with you and support you on your path. I recommend speaking with whoever you are considering through video chat and/or over the phone to be sure that you mesh. You want to have a healthy working relationship and feel like this person is a good fit for you. Ask them about their upline support. Having a supportive upline can mean the world of difference
How to Join LuLaRoe
Ready for the next step? I’m sure you have a laundry list of questions. You should! A few thousand dollars isn’t chump change. It’s a big investment and not one to be entered into lightly. You may be having a few of these thoughts: How long is the wait once you enter the queue? How do the taxes work? What are the onboarding package options? What is the profit margin? What kind of support will I receive in my business?
I’d love to answer your questions. After we have a chat and you have time to think, if you would like to sign up to be a LuLaRoe retailer, we can talk about moving forward. I encourage you to reach out to multiple consultants to find the best fit. You can contact me HERE if you’d like to!
