What’s your SweetLegs™ story?
I was getting ready to go back to work after maternity leave with my third child and working from home due to an office closure. This meant I didn’t get to do all the usual ‘back to work’ prep that I had done before, but I knew I needed some new clothes. I didn’t want to get dressed up to go to the basement every day, but I also didn’t want to spend the rest of my life bumming around in sweats. I had recently seen a friend in an amazing outfit that included the Merry Merry SweetLegs™, so I decided to try them. When my first order arrived, I took them out of the bag and felt them, and I was instantly in love. By the end of the day I had ordered two more pairs and within a month I had become an Independent Distributor. I was blown away with how comfortable, stylish, and affordable they were and just how confident they made me feel after almost a year of struggling with my post-3-babies-in-5-years-body. I just felt this pull to share that with as many people as I could.
How as being a SweetLegs™ Independent Distributor impacted your day-t0-day life?
I have met so many amazing people in the last 9 months, some of which have become good friends. When my office closed, I lost a lot of adult interaction in my life. It has been wonderful to have an opportunity to get out and talk with other women and moms, meet new people, and enjoy a shared love of SweetLegs with both my old friends and new ones. Being a Distributor has brought me closer to the people who were already in my life and introduced me to some wonderful new ones.
What’s your secret skill?
Despite my generally terrible cooking and baking abilities, I make the most amazing chocolate chip scones! I also have a very impressive knowledge of all things superhero, Pokemon, and basically any other character on a tv show for kids under the age of 7.
Tell us something exciting about yourself that others may not know?
While the people who are close to me in my life already know this, my customers are often surprised to find out that I also have a full time job. For 12 years now I have worked for a training and consulting company designing customer service training workshops and helping companies improve the customer experience within their organizations. It has been fun, and also enlightening, to find myself on the other side of the table now!
What is your most memorable customer interaction?
Probably when my 93 year old grandmother bought her first pair. I tried to give her some, but she insisted on paying for it, and she insisted on something “not too flashy and not too boring”. She ended up with Harvest Blossom and Windsong and kept joking that she was going to “make a spectacle” at her retirement home when she rocked them at Thanksgiving dinner the next day.
What is your favourite store to purchase tops and accessories for your SweetLegs™?
As most of my customers know, I’m a huge Old Navy fan. I find a ton of great tunics and longer tops from Old Navy, and also often from Joe Fresh. My newest find, although a little pricier is Under Armour for awesome long sweaters.
Share an amazing SweetLegs™ story with us!
I was at a home party, and the hostess had contacted me earlier in the day to say that the party was going to be small, but we decided to go ahead with it anyway. There were about 6 ladies there and it was the most fun party I have hosted to date. The hostess made all her guests try on one pair that was totally out of the box for them, just for fun. One of the guests, who was not sold on the idea of SweetLegs™, tried on a pair of Rewind. She looked amazing! She was skeptical about them, but kept going back to them all night long and in the end bought them! She has since come back to buy many more pairs and is frequent customer! The whole thing was such a testament to how great SweetLegs™ can make you feel about yourself, and how something as simple as leggings can really bring a group of friends together.
What do you want other people to know about being a SweetLegs™ Independent Distributor?
That it’s more than just a job. I mean, it’s a lot of work and I take it seriously, but it means more to me than just a job. It may sound surprising, but it’s amazing the impact that a pair of leggings can have on your life, or the life of your customers. It’s really fulfilling to be a part of that.
What makes your life Sweet?
My family. I have the most amazing husband, 3 (mostly!) wonderful kids, and we are surrounded by friends and family who love us and support us. It’s not about the things in our life, but it’s the people that make my life Sweet.
