What’s your SweetLegs Story?
In May 2013 after having my son I felt kind of lost. I didn’t have a career yet as I was in university when had him. I had a love for wearing my old rave boots, but I need to find something that was “me”. I was baby wearing exclusively, and platforms and baby wearing weren’t a mix – I needed style. I wasn’t really into leggings that much, but I had two friends in the baby wearing community that became Distributors for SweetLegs, and I said what the heck, I will give them a try. I got hooked! We had just moved into a bigger place, and I had the space for inventory so I decided to apply to become a Distributor, and I was accepted!
How has being a SweetLegs Distributor impacted your day-to-day life?
Somewhere around this time I developed postpartum depression and had a very high-needs child, and SweetLegs helped me to cope with these changes. I loved going to events and helping other women experience comfort and style through SweetLegs, and it was something I looked forward to, and seeing people genuinely excited to see such awesome prints made me happy. In the past year I have expanded the area where I sell and I have started having regular clients, becoming known as the “SweetLegs Lady”.
Tell us something exciting about yourself that others may not know?
I love to wear a blow up dinosaur costume and walk around with my son. Its one of two ways I am known in the area: Dino Mom or SweetLegs Lady.
What is your most memorable customer interaction?
I had a lady see Sophisticated (cats with glasses print) and she was over the top with excitement. When I told her they came in plus, she was shocked. She ended buying all 3 cat prints that day and walked away telling everyone about them.
“If I could be any animal in the world, I’d be a kangaroo, because I love jumping and baby wearing.”
Share an amazing SweetLegs story with us?
For two years now I have done the dragon boat race with Margaret, another Distributor. It’s an amazing experience to see these teams year after year and many cancer survivors. Every year they come search us out and we chat. Its pretty epic and humbling.
What superpower would you like to have?
X-ray vision. I really want to see the truth about things, and I feel if could see everything behind the walls that would help.
What do you want others to know about being a SweetLegs Distributor?
Its not easy but it’s a blast!! I put in a lot of work. Busy season is 40 hours or more a week, and you have to be comfortable with all types of people. One of the best parts is being a part of the SweetLegs Distributor community – everyone helps each other and it’s pretty awesome.
