The Distributor of the Week is an ongoing feature that we are proud to present weekly.
Check back every Friday as we highlight another amazing team member.
Name: Sarah McLean
Start Date: November 2016
SL: Why did your sweet self decide to join the sweetest team around?
SM: It was a very sporadic decision; last summer a woman from a local mommy group I am in posted that she was having an online SweetLegs party and was looking for people to join. I had never heard of SweetLegs so I looked them up and thought “why not?!”. So I attended, bought a few pairs and fell in LOVE! I was a new mom and felt extremely uncomfortable in my skin. Nothing fit and to be completely honest, I hated the way I looked for the first time in my life. SweetLegs changed that For the first time in a long time I smiled when I looked at myself in the mirror, and they gave me the confidence to do something about my negative feelings about myself. Within 1.5 months I had lost all my post baby weight (plus more!) and I felt amazing. I signed up to be an Independent Distributor shortly after!
SM: It has given me back my confidence! SweetLegs has also allowed me to provide extras for my family (like new toys that I may not have bought otherwise) and also to pay off a lot of debt.
SL: Tell us something exciting about yourself that others may not know!
SM: I am getting married in Punta Cana in April 2018!
SL: What is your most memorable customer interaction?
SM: I was at a home party a few months ago and there was a women sitting on the couch, and she looked a bit sad. I went to talk to her and asked if she wanted to try a pair of SweetLegs on and she politely brushed me off. I went to helping the other guests, but I kept looking over and I saw her checking out all her friends wearing the SweetLegs and there was something about the look she was giving – like she was happy but sad at the same time. I went over and sat with her and I suggested she try on a pair of Aurora and her response broke my heart, “No, I am too fat to wear leggings, they will look terrible”. I was shocked, this beautiful woman had such negative thoughts! With some convincing she finally tried on a pair of Black Licorice and the look on her face when she walked out wearing them, I will never forget it! She looked amazing, not because of the SweetLegs, but because of the confidence and self love she was oozing while wearing them. She is now one of my best customers
SL: How many donuts can you chow down on in one sitting?
SM: I’m not really a donut person, but if you leave me in a room alone with a few bags of Miss Vicki’s chips, you won’t see them again!
SL: What makes your life Sweet?
SM: My family! My fiancé Grant, is the most supportive man I have ever known. He keeps my grounded and supports all my ideas – even the crazy ones, and there have been many! My son Parker, he has taught me so much in his short, almost 2 years on this earth. He has taught me unconditional love and patience. The pure joy that he exudes in everything he does astounds me. And my two fur-babies Snickers and Coco, they have taught me that a queen size bed is not big enough!
SL: Any advice for our potential future SweetLegs Distributors out there?
SM: Be confident and you will accomplish amazing things!
