Owning Your Own LuLaRoe Business

Chances are if you love LuLaRoe fashion clothing so much you might want to sell it. (Learn more about LuLaRoe here)  Becoming a LuLaRoe consultant is buying clothing at wholesale prices and selling them at retail. You are buying all your inventory and owning your own LuLaRoe business. It is basically setting up your own clothing boutique right from your home.

Become a LuLaRoe Consultant

If you are thinking of joining LuLaRoe now is a great time. LuLaRoe is less than 5 years old and they are growing at an incredible rate. Once you fill out your initial paperwork it usually takes 6-8 weeks to wait. This period is called being in the Queue.

After the wait period is over you'll get a call from headquarters welcoming you to the company and that is when you will pay for your onboarding package. There is a waiting period because there are a lot of consultants joining and you are put on a list. This period is also great because it gives you a chance to set up and think through this whole process that is going to change your life!

Steps to Joining LuLaRoe

Joining LuLaRoe and starting your own business can be overwhelming. Here are some easy to follow steps to signing up.
  1. Find a sponsor- A sponsor is someone who is already a consultant that can guide you and train you through your setting up and LuLaRoe journey. You can't change this later so once you get your onboarding call they will verify with you as to who you'd like to be your sponsor. If you are looking for a sponsor, I am more than happy to help you and have a great up-line of awesome women with helpful videos, training and resources.
  2. Once you have signed the paperwork and filled out the information needed, you will be emailed a confirmation email to confirm. It will have a welcome email and steps for you to take to continue the process.
  3. Once you confirm your email address, you will then be sent a DocuSign with a contract for you to electronically sign and email back.
  4. Now you are officially in the Queue. Here are some helpful ideas on what to do while you are waiting.
  5. You will receive a call from home office welcoming you to LuLaRoe and you will place your initial order then.
  6. Get ready to rock and roll as a LuLaRoe Business owner!

How to Pay for Your LuLaRoe business

The initial inventory when you onboard is hard for some to see through. It will be around $5,000-6,000. However, keep in mind you are literally buying 300+ pieces of clothing. That's a lot of clothes. You will also need to add supplies such as hangers and clothes racks to the cost list. Here are some ideas on how to pay when you are starting up your own Lularoe business.
  1. Get a Loan from a bank or credit union
  2. Save up the money- not everyone can do this but think of ways you might be able to cut back to save money. Maybe a tax return, birthday money, selling unused items around your house, etc.
  3. Apply for a no interest credit card. There are several credit cards out there that you can sign up for that will give you a 0% interest usually for a 15-24 months period. Make sure you pay on the card each month and definitely you want to pay the whole card off by that time period ends. This is a good way to afford a big investment. 
  4. Use a combination of resources. Lularoe will let you split payments up however you need to when you buy that initial inventory. They want to help you succeed.

**Remember you have that time in the queue to save and work on lining up your money payment to start your business. You don't pay until you get that onboarding phone call.

Lularoe Onboarding Checklist

Using your time wisely while you are waiting in the LuLaRoe queue can really benefit you when your inventory arrives at your door. I created a long list of 50 things that helped me stay focused on what I needed to accomplish in that 6-8 week period. Here are my top 5 suggestions of what to do while in the queue.
  1. Research. Join other consultant groups. Decide what you like and what you’d like to do differently and the same. Research all the clothing styles, sizes and history and culture of Lularoe.
  2. Training. Join all quebe club calls and home office calls that happen every week.  Watch your uplines training webinars.(Hopefully your sponsor has lots of training for you.) My upline has webnairs each week, past webnairs recorded and training videos that I found very useful. The Lularoe Fundamentals page has a lot of videos to watch as well.
  3. Practice with Pictures. Design in your house where and how you are going to have a staging backdrop for taking pictures. Decide on a backdrop. Use some of your own lularoe clothes and stage how you want to take pictures. Practice taking pictures, uploading and creating images.
  4. Buy Supplies. Buy clothing racks, hangers, business cards, how to take care of your lularoe cards, shipping supplies, etc.
  5. Social Media. Set up your Lularoe social media accounts. Don't start posting too soon because your audience still has to wait along with you. But have it up and ready and when you get your call start posting and even hold a giveaway. Don't forget the in-person social aspect too. Tell your friends and family and let them know what you are doing.
