When taking on LuLaRoe, I knew I would be busy working pop-ups, online sales, marketing, customer service and multiple other activities involved with owning a business. When signing up for this business, if you are thinking about it, please realize it will consume all of your free time.
I love every second of this.
I love meeting all the new people and interacting them them. I learn about peoples likes, dislikes, trends, family stories… I have made new friendships and reconnected with old friends. Found long lost co-workers from years past who just randomly saw a sponsored ad on Facebook. LuLaRoe has thrown some amazing curve balls at me, and I seem to roll with her punches.
I love figuring out how business works, and how marketing helps, as well as the ups and downs of trends. I have learned how to purchase items based on what my customers love, and learned how super-saturation of items can be an issue in my inventory as well as the whole LuLaRoe market. Having an MS in management, my business has helped me utilize what I have been taught, and give me experience in project management, ethics, finance, and even consulting.
Hopefully I can pencil in time to keep up with my blog now that I have motivation and a handle on my new business. Time management has been my hardest challenge. Full time job + LuLaRoe (which turned into full time work) does not leave much time for anything else. I go to the gym, take dance lessons, and try to keep a social life. I started to blog about my LuLaRoe experiences, however I failed to keep a time to write. It is important in life to make an appointment with yourself and not cancel it- make yourself a priority. This is my new goal for the autumn months.
