Episode 61 - LuLaBitch - Maelen - Part 2
*The stories shared in LuLaBitch are our own personal experiences, opinions and allegations of our time in the cult LuLaRoe. Some accounts may be triggering. Please listen at your own discretion.

We continue Maelen's story after the disaster of Vision 2017 broke the straw, and her dealing with leaving LuLaRoe and the 100% Buy Back cancelation nightmare. We discuss the culture in LuLaRoe, and what it was like being outside the target demographic, the tokenism, two faced lies and how culty it really was. Even as a small fish, who put her everything into it, she just couldn't make it work for her despite every attempt at making Mark's rotten lemons into lemonade. After watching LuLaRich, Maelen just couldn't unsee the truth anymore and needed to share her experience in the cult with us.
