This episode is a new idea I had, and if we like it, I'd love to continue with other MLMs and topics! I love the audience participation part! The other day I was sent a video of DeAnne saying that LuLaRich was just 4 consultants complaining and not to base their opinions of LuLaRoe on 4 consultants experiences. So I put out a call to action and asked people to send in some of their experiences with LuLaRoe, because I knew there was A LOT more than 4. I was so excited by the response and will do more as long as you send me those messages! Enjoy!

We finish up Part 2 as Becca and I discuss some of the more burning questions in LuLaRich, like that odd marriage and why Mark and DeAnne think it's so funny. Plus some of the deepest secrets that LuLaRich didn't mention, and what we think about what's to come and the future of LuLaRoe. Plus Becca answers my rapid fire questions and it leads to even more bananery.

In the world of LuLaRoe tea, Becca dominates the space, and while she was never a rep, LuLaRoe still found it's way in front of her curious eyes. From the credit card breaches and tax issues, to the juicy MyDyer case, if LuLaRoe has been sued, Becca knows about it and has snarky commentary to accompany it. I'm so glad that we finally found the time to sit down and chat, because this episode has been in the works since I started this podcast! This is part 1, and I am EXHAUSTED so you'll have to wait for part 2 until later!

As we finish up our list of LuLaGrievances, "Melissa" and I finally make it to the NDSS scandal, explaining what happened with the top selling consultants who mocked special needs. Listening to how LuLaRoe spun this disaster into their favor is the word salad you didn't know you needed. We also talk about our own actions in LuLaRoe, admitting to things we had deep buried and forgot about, and shed light on the mindset we were in when we made the decisions we did. My chat with "Melissa" was raw, fun, hilarious and authentic, just like her.

I met "Melissa" before our time in LuLaRoe, when we were both young moms at a local Chick-Fil-A storytime group. We instantly hit it off, and kept in touch as her husband's military career took them cross country. After LuLaRich came out, "Melissa" reached out and told me she wanted to tell me her story as a "small fish" in LuLaRoe. So many of her experiences mirrored mine, and I know so many more former retailers will connect with her dry humor and "WTF"ery in the ups and downs on her LuLaJourney. This is Part 1.
