I had the exciting chance to interview a fellow entrepreneur. She’s a LuLaRoe Consultant and sells clothing that is LulaRoe at pop-up stores about town. She’s been really appreciating running her own business and get the details of what it’s like to sell for LuLaRoe and I got to take a seat with her.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO START SELLING LULAROE’S CLOTHING?
This past year I had heard of a couple of friends going to these LuLaroe pop up shops and I went to one and bought a pair of buttery soft lularoe leggings and a clothing from my daughter. I was hooked and so were my daughters after purchasing more clothing be a consultant and I decided to sign up myself and hosting one.
WHAT MADE YOU WISH TO WORK WITH LULAROE PARTICULARLY?
It simply looked like an extremely interesting and supportive group a women to eventually become part of. The organization has plenty of core values that are good as well as the garments helps women feel great about themselves.
Once I made the decision to sign up I contacted my friend who is also a LulaRoe consultant. I looked over it and she emailed me a contract as well as a small business overview and I was signed up within a week. When I had received my first inventory I had a party booked that week.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT THE LULAROE BRAND?
My favourite things about the brand are we have sizes that fit everyone and that the clothing are super comfy! The sizes range from XXS-XXXL and that amazing. Also, the products are reasonably priced.
The LuLaRoe community is like a great group of close pals. We have monthly meetings with all the LuLaRoe advisers in town. We share suggestions that we’ve all learned that is likely to make our business that is LuLaRoe better or easier.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE LULAROE THEORY?
The one thing I love about LuLaRoe is how private it’s. It is a shopping experience that is personal. A woman hosts a party, I bring all my inventory (350-600 pieces) and her pals simply store! Its so nice in order to try on clothes and hang out with friends. You don’t need to listen to order from a catalog or a 15 minute address, and also you take all you desire home that night. Folks can come and go as they please. Its perfect! Plus hostesses earn a complimentary item of clothing for every 10 pieces sold at her party.
WHAT ARE LULAROE PARTIES LIKE AND HOW MUCH DO YOU MAKE AT EVERY PARTY?
On average 20-27 pieces are sold at a profit of $19 per bit. Some parties are higher and some celebrations are lower.
HOW DO YOU PROMOTE YOUR PARTIES?
I’ll also boost on social media to describe a number of the styles of clothing I will be bringing to her house and describing the brand for anyone who hasn’t heard around LuLaRoe before. So it can range between an hour a day to merely a couple hours.
WHAT ARE THE LULAROE CONSULTANT STARTUP COSTS?
To start up the company that you’ll need to buy your first stock which is your LuLaRoe start up kit. Your initial inventory will comprise around 350 bits about a number of sizes which will pick and 5 styles. The price is around $5000-$6000.
By making this step you are making a huge step towards the independence that comes from owning your own company. This is as you work you can make full time pay for part time work and a simple company. In a matter of months, with LulaRoe you can refund your initial investment and have cash in the bank.
WHAT HAS BECOMING A LULAROE ADVISER DONE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY?
LuLaRoe has given me something I can do for myself and provide a little extra for my family. Right now I plan my work hours around my family’s needs. I am capable to truly have a whole lot of flexibility with all of the things that come up with being a mother, but then have my own business that can provided additional income for all of us also.
