LuLaRoe Karen Kristine
LULAROE FASHION CONSULTANT | St. Charles, IL
Hi everyone, my name is Karen! I live in St. Charles, IL which is about an hour outside of Chicago for me. I've lived here my entire life except for a few years when I finished my degree in Missouri. I'm married to a cool guy named Jared and have two little boys running around. Oh yeah, and my Mom lives with us :)
My why for starting with LuLaRoe really starts back to about 8 years ago if I'm being honest because I feel like the journey I'm on was formed back then. I had postpartum depression that hit a few months after having my first son. For some reason I traveled down the road of seeing several doctors who all just wanted to put me on meds. Long story short, I worked really hard for two years crawling out of this med free. Happy to share more of that journey if anyone is interested. Through that journey I found the book "The Secret" as well as others that really helped to keep me in the present and think positively. I believe in all things vision boards, positive energy, power of positive thought, etc. So fast forward several years to December 2015. I had been working at the same business for 15 years in Marketing. I had seen the majority of my co-workers let go, multiple management changes, and seemed to be living in fear every day driving in. Will I be let go today? What I realized is that I really did not like how much control someone else had over my life. Maybe it was also that I was turning 40 this year and just questioning what I was doing, where am I going? My Marketing job was not bringing me joy anymore, even though I still loved Marketing. I did not like working 50+ hours a week just to make shareholders more money who seemed to just take away more from the employees over the years.
So I began spending the few minutes before I fell asleep at night praying to my Grandma to help me find my way. Just asking for her to guide me and help me find the journey I should be on. I know enough to be open to signs. In the meantime, a friend had invited me to a LuLaRoe party on FB. I feel like these come and go and I usually didn't pay attention to them. For some reason I clicked on this invite and to say I kind of became obsessed with the clothes leading up to the party is an understatement. I loved them before I had them! Fast forward a few weeks and it hit me that maybe that was my sign. I decided to listen to it... thought long and hard about how to present this to my husband, and then took the leap. And the rest is history!
