Soooo…I did a thing, I quit LuLaRoe.
I turned in my resignation paperwork and let me tell you, the path to get to this point in time was a difficult one.
This is not a LuLaRoe hate post, so if you came here looking for some shit to spread, you won’t find it. I don’t regret a damn thing from my adventures with LuLaRoe. The lessons I have learned, the experiences and the people I have met are so invaluable it’s insane. Like most relationships, we just started to drift in different directions. I no longer felt the vibe from the LuLaRoe styles and I really didn’t care for the prints that were being released. It wasn’t the same fun quirky stuff that I really liked before. The new styles LuLaRoe has been and still are releasing are going further and further away from what I personally find fashionable. So, in my transparent Francesca style, I couldn’t possibly sell things that I, myself, am not in love with. The biggest struggle with this decision was deciding to drop something that was bringing in decent, regular, dependable income. Why on earth would someone quit LuLaRoe when they were successful?
An opening to re-evaluate my business appeared when we decided to sell our home and build our dream home. (Speaking of doing a THING…) I already needed to downsize my inventory considerably since we were expecting to be going from our 2600 square foot home to a 1200 sq foot apartment while in transition. So, as I was downsizing, I started to really think about where I wanted my business to go, what I really and truly wanted to do. Then, an opportunity presented itself to me… a fabulous opportunity (You will find out more about this in my next blog post!!) Yes, I would be starting over essentially, with a new brand that carried zero weight to it’s name, but one that I would be building something even greater than what I had already built! This new adventure didn’t limit how to run MY business. I would have so much more freedom; freedom to carry other items and products, you know, like a real boutique!
So…. I decided to take a risk, to jump and follow the adventure! I quit LuLaRoe, or more accurately, decided to no longer carry the LuLaRoe brand in my Ciao Bella Boutique! It’s legit now by the way 😉 Ciao Bella Boutique LLC is a real entity!! So, I do not want to say the acronym GOOB or the words “Going out of business” because my darling, I am NOT! I am moving on to bigger and greater things, and I couldn’t be more excited!!
With this announcement, I hope you continue to follow me and the conception of Ciao Bella Boutique LLC!
Be on the look out this week for my next blog post announcing my new Boutique and what clothing line I am going to carry next! (Hint hint, it’s all American made!)
