We celebrate Alister’s first year.
I wasn’t looking for a Direct Sales company to work with. I enjoyed my sewing business on Etsy, but when I discovered this amazing flexi clip, I knew I needed to get over my initial skepticism for direct sales. And I’m glad I did. After a few nights of googling, I learned direct sales are not a pyramid scheme (those are illegal). It is a great way to earn an income from home.
You may think I got into this because I love doing hair, when in fact I do this because I’ve never really liked my hair! Lilla Rose is a product that makes me proud to put my hair up. It makes my life easier. When I bought my first flexi the difference was so incredible! Putting my hair up in less than a minute with this beautiful clip. I couldn’t believe it! It was so comfortable and staying in my thin fine hair all day! All I could think of was, “How could it have taken me so long to try this!” After that I was hooked! I knew this business would be the right decision.
I am a stay at home mom, and I’m blessed my husband has a steady job, but all the money gets eaten up by bills, and so this business pays for the extra’s we enjoy as a family. I enjoy the mental break from being a mommy and the wonderful friends I’ve made through this business.
With Lilla Rose you can be a casual stylist, buying products at a discount. A part-time stylists, earning a little money for extra family expenses or other needs. Or a full-time stylists, looking to sell Lilla Rose and build a team, earning bonuses and rewards as you advance. There is an option just right for you!
Lilla Rose is a growing company with a patented product. Which means that no other company is going to be selling the flexi clip. With about 6,000 stylists there is tons of room to grow!
How many days a week does the average consultant work?
Well, that is up to you. A consultant can work a couple hours a week doing a style boutique or more hours with more style boutiques or vendor events. You will get what you put in to your business, working more will accelerate quicker.
How much money would I make working this business?
Lilla Rose’s commission is 30-45% of sales.
How much money does it cost to get my business started?
Lilla Rose has a low cost of $49.95 party kit. Which includes 5 clips, business supplies and your own free website.
There is also an add on fast start option with $1,100 worth of product for only $500. There are many other added benefits to this to get your business going. This is the option I signed up with!
Will I have to keep inventory or make deliveries?
The start up kit comes with 5 flexi’s of different sizes. That is perfect to size people and let them try the flexi clip. Customers can order from your website and delivered right to them. If you would like to do vendor events you can keep stock to sell from.
Will I make money helping others start their business?
Yes, the consultants you sponsor you make a 10% bonus on their sales. You have to be an active seller to earn this bonus.
Why did you choose this company over other direct sales companies?
I loved the product. Their commission payout is really good. And there are many avenues to sell, home parties, on-line and vendor shows.
Talk to me about the support I will receive as a new stylist?
Lilla Rose has a back office with video’s, recordings, and live weekly training calls to help your business. As your sponsor I will be available for training and support! We also have an amazing supportive Stylists Facebook group.
I’m curious, how do I get more information about this?

Atreyu has turned 7 years old. I still can’t believe my oldest child is 7! What a blessing he is. Full of emotion and love and extremes. He has taught me a lot. Mostly how to be patient…
He loves God and wants to know everything about everything. Sadly, he already knows that I don’t know everything…I’ve got the other kids convinced still.
He is the best older brother anyone could have.
7 years with this kid has been amazing. Happy Birthday!
And some oldies.
Four years ago I opened my Etsy shop. I enjoyed sewing and decided selling the items I made could support my new hobby. It did. I have a room full a fabric to prove it.
I have the privilege to stay home with my four kids and sewing gave me a nice mental break to feel recharged and able to keep going during the long days.
I eventually did well selling on Etsy, selling about $10,000 a year. I loved doing craft show and getting my clothes in local shops. Sewing is so much fun for me, why would I not want to continue selling my handmade items?
Well, it was hard. And yes, being successful is hard work. I like the hard work. To make and sell children’s clothing, there are a lot of laws to keep up with and styles to know. I needed to market and sell my product, deal with taxes and all of my income went right back into my business.
I was making a little bit to pay for extras like our YMCA membership and having someone clean my house. (I would rather sew than clean.) But everything else went into fabric, new machines, supplies and everything else. I needed something else. It wasn’t really worth it anymore. I would rather sew batches of T-shirts for my four kids than sew for someone else. My shop was taking to much time from my family.
We still needed little bit of extra income. I knew of the direct selling option, but never considered it for myself. I saw friends joining different companies and posting all about it on Facebook, but it’s nothing I would ever consider doing myself (Right?!). I felt like they were selling a product I would never buy, or the ones I did buy, I didn’t want a whole closet full off them. Why would I consider joining one?
Then something clicked in my head. I was basically direct selling my handmade items. But, I was doing it by myself. I was creating, marketing doing EVERYTHING on my own. I had no real support team, other people were my competition, I had to do better then them. Then I asked myself why am I even doing this?
I then ordered a product I absolutely loved! And started googling everything about direct sales companies. Direct sales is NOT a pyramid scheme. It’s now the fastest growing industry. With low start up costs, it seemed like a good option to have my own business.
What I found out is they were basically doing the same thing I was doing with my handmade business all by myself. The difference is they had a team and a company supporting them. In my handmade business, I had no one really helping me succeed. I was trying to make and sell something not everyone trusted or knew.
I ordered a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip and then researched the company like crazy to understand how their direct sales model worked. Later that week I signed up to be a consultant. I read the manual that night and was excited to jump in. With Lilla Rose, I found a company that treats its consultants as business partners and not just more customers. The support and encouragement from my team is something I never had with my handmade business.
We are trying to monetize everything online. Getting paid for clicking your affiliated link, get paid from YouTube for your video, get $10 when you refer your friend, and so many other ways. Why not work with a great company marketing their product? I’m not a salesy person, but I’m going to be telling my friends about these anyway. I’m just glad I can receive 35%-50% from what they buy.
Here are some numbers for the numbers people. In November, I sold $1,175.40 on Etsy and I sold $1,648.42 with Lilla Rose. After buying material and paying etsy fee’s for my handmade business etc… I get to keep about $300, and I still need to make and ship out the items I sold!
Taking my 45% commission from Lilla Rose I will receive $741.78, plus commission from my teams sales. All I have to do now is thank my customers for supporting me and loving Lilla Rose! Yup I choose that one.
My journey so far with Lilla Rose has been great. I am self motivated when I set goals. Each month I have enjoyed reaching them. Lilla Rose has paid for a flight back to Michigan, it helps pay for fabric, paying someone else to clean my house and other fun extra’s with my family. I think it’s great that I earn what I work for, and have the opportunity to promote within the business and earn a residual income. Which is my ultimate goal.
I still sew clothes for my kids and for myself. I still have my etsy shop open, but Lilla Rose is where I’m headed and what I plan to grow my business with.
You may think I do this because I love doing hair, when in fact I do this because I’ve never really liked my hair! Lilla Rose is a product that makes me proud to put my hair up. It makes my life easier. When I bought my first clip the difference was so incredible! Putting my hair up in less than a minute with a beautiful hair clip. I couldn’t believe it. It was so comfortable and stayed in my fine thin hair all day without giving me a headache or sliding out. All I could think was, “How could it have taken me so long to try this?”
If you are looking for something else to make some money with or want to try these hair clips out. Send me an email or message me on Facebook, Lauren Hannon Lilla Rose. I will gladly answer your questions about Lilla Rose. Check out my Lilla Rose site too. www.lillarose.biz/thehannonfamily Of course if you have a Lilla Rose consultant already, go support her!
This isn’t to put down handmade businesses. A lot of people depend on and do really well with their business. This is my story of why I chose a direct sales business.
My little girl is 4 years old! What a joy these 4 years have been.
She started out calm and has grown and learned to keep up with her brothers. She is my helper and has an amazing heart. I love watching her grow this last year.
We loved celebrating her!
