Remember how I said being a mom is hard? Well, making friends when you work from home is nearly impossible. Finding other women that understand the hustle and can relate to the hours that you put in, with no real schedule, is tiring. Keeping up with those who work ‘normal’ hours or those that don’t work at all is harder than you think. Finding like minded people who have similar goals, morals and passions is not easy either, but once you find them, love them hard.
LuLaRoe has brought so many amazing women into my life. Girlfriends that support, encourage, laugh and cry with you! Girlfriends who share strengths and disregard your weaknesses. Girlfriends who you won’t see for months, but then you catch right back up like you haven’t spent any time apart. Friends from work don’t have to be just like you. They don’t have to have kids the same age and they don’t even have to live near by. It doesn’t even matter what their family dynamics are, because you have other things in common. You can talk in acronyms regarding your business and they understand. You can go to lunch and call it work.
In school age years, making friendships seemed easy; you would gravitate towards the kids who did the same thing you do or who were more like you. If you were a cheerleader, most of your friends probably were too! If you were in the band, well, most of your friends were also in band. As an adult, it might not seem that easy. Sure, you can be friends/acquaintances with your kids friends parents, or maybe you talk to the other moms at dance class, but finding real friends is so much more than that.
Finding the right Girlfriends
Finding the girlfriends who don’t post pictures unless you both look good; or who run to you with open arms when they haven’t seen you in awhile. Girlfriends who seem to know when you need help and are available to lend a hand. Girlfriends who respond to text messages at 7am or midnight, just depending on the day. These are the type of friends you need to find as you get older.
When I started LuLaRoe, one of the last things on my list of what I hoped to get out of it was finding new friends. I honestly didn’t think I had time for friends. Very quickly I realized that friendships were going to be the lifeblood of my business and these friendships would mean more to me than any other part of my business. I have become friends with my upline leaders, with those that chose me as a sponsor, and those that are a part of my team. I have become friends with other leaders and although we operate our businesses at all different levels, we have connections that bind us and morals that we live by that keep us connected.
LuLaRoe’s mission statement says this: Where through fashion we create freedom, serve others and strengthen families. A place where lives are being improved and dreams achieved through Love, Purpose, Confidence, Trust and Growth.
