The Amazing Lilla Rose Opportunity-It Can’t Be Kept A Secret!

What is a direct sales business? Direct sales is when a person has joined up with a real company to sell a real product directly to a consumer. She may do it through an online replicated website, at in home Style Boutiques, or through a vendor event of some kind, such as a craft show, networking event, or festival. In direct sales, that Stylist will provide direct customer service, likely more personal and with better quality than a box store. The direct seller earns a commission off the product she sells, and as she builds a team, she may also earn a portion of her team members’ sales as well.

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

The direct selling business has a lower price point start up cost than a franchise brick and mortar store would have. The opportunities usually contain no cost or low cost website fees, no to low quotas, and flexible work hours, but success does depend on one’s own work initiative, and often creative solutions in the execution of her business. Relying on one’s friends’ list or social media only is going to be very limiting to her success.

The three main reasons a person would go into direct sales are:

  1. Earning potential
  2. Flexibility
  3. Need for community and to impact a community

I’m curious. If you were going to start a Lilla Rose direct sales business, what would be your main reason for having one? I seriously want to hear your story!


Lilla Rose was actually named one of the eight best direct selling companies to earn extra cash by Woman’s Day magazine, with commissions starting at 30%, and the ability to earn up to 45% with sales and promotions through team building.

The new kit, called Ready, Set, Style, was released in early October, It contains everything a Stylist needs to hit the ground running. The start up cost is $125 (plus tax and shipping), but has a $300 value in product and business supplies. Doing only home parties, a person could earn back their start up costs in as little as one or two parties, depending on the sales from those parties. There is also the potential to add on a Fast Start pack for $500 (plus tax/shipping, valued at $1100) for additional product if one desires to have inventory.

There are no website fees, and the only quota is the $30/year in sales. Frankly, once a Lilla Rose user, that $30 quota is easily obtained just in personal use purchases! That is the purchase of a hair band and a pair of bobby pins, or a small flexi clip and a Swerve upin!


If a person is looking for flexibility in business, there are many ways to sell Lilla Rose products. The replicated website is easy and free. Sharing the website via a blog or the products at networking events is a way to introduce Lilla Rose. A Stylist can opt to work with bloggers doing reviews and giveaways. A Stylist may carry an advertising bag filled with product, and sell at her children’s extra-curricular activities. There are home Style Boutiques as well as social media ones. Using the policies and procedures of not just the Lilla Rose company for social selling, but those of each site as well, this can be very effective, ethical, and spam free way to do Style Boutiques. There are also craft fairs, festivals, and vendor events for those who enjoy direct selling in that fashion.

Lilla Rose is a flexible enough business opportunity that we actually use our business as training ground for our children in entrepreneurship in our homeschooling.


The community in Lilla Rose is like nothing I ever expected in direct sales. It is a family owned company, and even Lilla Rose Inc is small enough that there is a family atmosphere at headquarters. The owner and CEO of the company, John Dorsey, is likely to answer a telephone customer or Stylist inquiry.

We have both larger Stylist support groups and smaller team ones. There are weekly free webinar trainings. There are occasional regional trainings, and a yearly conference.

Lastly, if you want to make an impact in your community using your direct sales business, you are able to do that as well. You determine your involvement in a cause either through product donation to that cause, or whether or not you want to run a fundraiser.


And, finally, I love the ladies on my growing team. I truly want to hear their successes, and help through their hard times in their business.

Do work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit energize you? Do you love hair styling and accessories? Would you love excitement, rewards, fun, and friends?

I’m seeking new Stylists to join my Lilla Rose team, and to be Hair Heroes with me! With effort you’re able to put into your business, you could earn a full or part-full time income by helping ladies look and feel beautiful, and by providing them with an easier morning hair routine! I’d love to talk more about the business opportunity here, or message me on my business page, LoveLeavingLegacy. I look forward to hearing from you!

Blessings,

Deb

Ten Homeschool Benefits For Youth Using A Family Business

A few weeks ago, the LoveLeavingLegacy crew was honored to be the Lilla Rose vendors for the INCH homeschool conference in Lansing, MI. We got to model what it could look like for families to have a business with low start up costs, and to enable parents to teach entrepreneurship and business skills through a real life family internship at their finger tips, all while reaching family financial goals.

Not all our business working children were able to make the conference. We had some illness the same weekend.

We had a great time, and talked to many lovely families.


Have you ever considered a family based business to teach your children these skills?

What Could Your Youth Learn By Your Family Having A Business?

  • Bookkeeping
  • Marketing And Social Media
  • Graphics and Video Making
  • Product Demonstration
  • Communication
  • Salesmanship
  • Ethics in Business
  • Office Work
  • Inventory Purchasing
  • Money Management

I’m sure there is so much more.


Maybe you are a woman wanting a second job, a Mom needing a way to earn some extra money for the family while getting a night out. What would be YOUR why? Just because my Why is to get to work with my children doesn’t mean that is yours. My Why won’t be my Why forever either.

Our children grow up and start their own lives. But, I have a vision for being able to travel with my husband, care for my parents, travel to see our grandchildren, relieve some burden on my husband, and maybe to do missions. I’d love a job that can travel with us, and building this business now prepares us for a future like that!


So what could you do with a small business? How would it prepare you for your future if it’s not because of homeschooling? And what could you learn with your children if it’s for homeschooling today?

Here is a list of other benefits to a Lilla Rose business:

  • Community and Relationships
  • Extra Income Potential
  • Love the Products
  • Leadership Opportunities
  • Fundraising Potential
  • It’s also Family Owned With Family Emphasis


As my children grow, I realize there is a season for everything. I’m still in a planting season with my children, but I’m also in a harvest season. Lilla Rose has been a huge benefit to us in both planting, nurturing, and harvesting. We are still building through homeschooling and a Lilla Rose business.


Where are you in your seasons?


If you see yourself wanting to train up a generation of entrepreneurs through a low cost start up business, we should talk. If you see yourself needing a hair care system business because you both love the products, need the community, need part time or full time income, or would love a fundraising vehicle, I would love to talk.

Blessings,

Deb

Eight Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

When I was a little girl, we always, without fail, bought my Mom potted flowers for Mother’s Day. She liked red geraniums. Once I was a teenager, as an act of service, I took over the front flower beds of my parents’ home, managed them, and did all the weeding and planting. Eventually as an act of service for my father, I also added lawn maintenance to my list of summer chores.

Sometimes buying gifts for Mom, like a Mom, Mom to be, friends, etc, is difficult. Sometimes Mom just wants attention and everyone home. Some Moms like cards, especially handmade ones. Some love lunch out or a hike in the woods as a family.

Below are eight gift ideas for Mom!

1.) In the LoveLeavingLegacy blog shop, there are many styles of scarves and wraps.

Flexi clip adornment

All look lovely with a Lilla Rose flexi clip adornment, and there are so many flexi clips to choose from! The just out today Floressa is an example! 

It just so happens that today through 11:59 pm PST May 3rd, Lilla Rose is having a 10% off sale of May’s new releases with free shipping for $60+ orders, and a monthly customer special of a free pair of upins for retail orders over $75. The new Flexi of the Month, Floressa, and the coordinating bobby pins are stunning, and they are the flowers that require no upkeep by mom! 

2.) Lilla Rose products do give the gift of beautiful hair with minimum fuss! You’d be a hair hero if you gifted her some!

Some clips in this video are no longer available but the photos are representative of hair beautified with Lilla Rose. 

3.) Lilla Rose clips also work on hats, bags, and beach wraps. You could add a book by a favorite author for her relaxing trip to the beach! Or a gift card to the book store so she can shop for that book herself would be a nice afternoon out too.

Newly released Shelly, also 10% off today through May 3rd.

Sea Turtle, 10% off through May 3rd.

Purchase a straw hat, a thin summery scarf, and a leather 8 with a stick to coordinate the look!

4.) If your Mom is work outside the home mom who requires a name badge, is a quilter who likes her scissors close at hand, or doesn’t like to carry a purse, but needs something to clip her wristlet or keys too, perhaps she would love a pretty lanyard!

For Moms who deserve to be treated like a princess, who are wise, who offer direction, or who just love flowers.

5.) If the lady you are buying for likes manicures, pedicures, to color her hair, or massages, buy gift cards to her favorite salons or pampering products for her do it at home options. You could also support a local business who makes goat’s milk soaps and lotion pampering products.

6.) A gift card to her favorite clothing store is a lovely gesture for a Mom’s afternoon out alone.

7.) If she likes flowers, or chocolate, or handmade cards or acts of service, show her you love her and meet those desires and needs.

8.) Call the special lady you call Mom, or like a Mom on the telephone or write her a snail mail letter. Tell her you love her, appreciate her, and thank her for making you the person you are today.


Celebrate your Mom.

Life changes quickly, and we are never promised tomorrow.


Perhaps you are a lady who has entered a new season, for whatever reason. Perhaps you desire a change the way you are using your time, need help with finances, or want to mentor young ladies in small business. Maybe you are a blogger. Maybe you would like to consider a Lilla Rose business of your own, and gift yourself a business start up to promote online and in person.

I can help. I can point you in the direction of lovely group on women who support each other, train each other, and celebrate accomplishments.

I’d love to help you get set to bloom in this new season!


I know that Mother’s Day is often a subject and a day filled with pain for many. Not every one has a mom to celebrate.  Not all mothers value their children the way they deserve to be valued. Many have lost children, or have not been able to have a child. I’m not going to pretend that I understand the pain of rejection, abuse, or the extent of losses such as those. But, if you are broken, hurt, have lost your Mom, feel like you have missed an opportunity with your own children, I pray that you find a peace that passes understanding. I pray for a peace that leads to healing, grace, and forgiveness. Do your part to live a life without regret and to be in unity with others, even though this seems impossible.  Surround yourself with those who hold you up in sorrow and pain, and who will love you through it.

You are worthy.

You are deserving of support and love.

You are a son/daughter of a most High King.

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;he delivers them from all their troubles.The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:17-18

Blessings,

Deb 

PS. I need to go find red geraniums to ship to my Mom.

Mother’s Day is May 14, 2017. Don’t forget!
