Why Paisley Raye? And why leave my first clothing business for it?
Hello friends!! I’m Jennifer Clair and I’m the owner and founder of Be Unique Boutique. I used to be a retailer for another incredibly popular clothing direct sales company. It was my side hustle as I work full-time in healthcare administration.
The thing is I wasn’t very happy after a year of selling clothing. I thought I was but I’d get discouraged with things going on in the company I was representing and I never really acknowledged it. And then I found Paisley Raye.
I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into but I started trying on their clothes at a conference and all of the sudden it clicked. I might have spoken the words “questioning my life choices” a few times. I hadn’t realized how unhappy I was until that conference. I also had absolutely no idea I was talking to the co-owners of the company in that booth space as I tried on all the things. I bought one dress (Hello, Dahlia!) and I got home and reached out to my newest friend from that conference who had done just the thing I was considering doing. I was in the PR queue within a week.
The moment I realized I made the best decision and was in the right place was eye opening and a bit personal. While I was at that conference my youngest sister was being treated for Breast Cancer and had developed some rib pain. Scans were done and she was headed for a kidney biopsy while I was across the country. I was sad. I was worried. I was trying to really live in the moment in a place I had never been before and focus on personal development but as a worrier of an oldest sister, it weighed on me. When I shared my story with some new friends, the love and support from the others at the conference was overwhelming. When I returned home to Boston, the results came back that my sister had kidney cancer on top of the breast cancer she was in treatment for. So I shared this news with my new friends. Little did I know, Ruth and Christi were in that group on Facebook. When I got that personal email from Ruth asking about my sister, I knew I was home. The genuine love and support I got and continue to receive from Paisley Raye is more than I could ever dream of.
And I’m not going to tell you that leaving a business for another one is easy. I’m still trying to liquidate my prior inventory but I’m so incredibly lucky and grateful that I found Paisley Raye when I did. It took me off the ledge I was standing on and filled my cup. You see, I’ve never felt like just another paycheck in this company. I’m a valued family member in the Paisley Raye Family. And I wouldn’t give that feeling up for anything.
