Emily Daigle is an independent distributor for SweetLegs. She’s been in business since Sept 13, 2015. As Emily puts it, “SweetLegs is a Canadian company that offers unbelievably comfortable and kitteny soft leggings in two sizes fit most as well as kids sizes that range from age two to fourteen! One size fits most ladies from size 0-12 and plus fits most ladies size 12-20. We have also just recently launched a petite size 00-6. We offer a variety of prints and solids to please everyone.
“Our company motto is Self confidence is the best outfit, Rock it & Own it, and we believe that everyone has ‘the right body’ to wear SweetLegs.”
From the SweetLegs website:
SweetLegs strives to be a fun and upbeat company and we take pride in everything we do. Our customers from the very start have not only helped us grow but have spread a lifetime worth of love, happiness, inspirational stories and wonderful feedback which has pushed us to become who we are today. As we push forward embracing our mantra down to the very core, we hope to inspire everyone that joins us along the way.
Emily has a few ventures on the go at any given time, and rumour has it that she’s currently pursuing a future in Real Estate.
Here’s how she completed the Sooke PocketNews Questionnaire.
When did you first know that you wanted to be self employed?
I knew I wanted to run a small business while I was on a short work trip to Manitoba with my family, I wanted to keep active and social in the small town of Swan River while I was there for three months.
Once I launched SweetLegs Sooke with Emily, I knew I loved being self employed. I really enjoyed not having a boss and being able to pick hours that worked well for me and the family.
What support systems did you have in place when you started?
My husband and the SweetLegs distributors network on Facebook is extremely supportive. I also have a big network of supportive friends and family which I will be forever grateful for.
What advice would you offer other potential entrepreneurs?
I would recommend to do that thing that really excites you and what you are good at! Doing something you are really good at will give you the competitive edge above the rest. Also find a mentor and support group. Learn from the most successful people you can find. Read as many books as you can. Self progression is the key. Keep training physically, mentally and socially – never stop training and networking.
My motivation to want to succeed financially has always be a part of me. Taking the steps towards real action takes a lot of dedication, hard work and patience. After I opened up shop I began to unravel all of these hidden selling talents I never knew I had, I soon began to realize how capable I was to be extremely self motivated.
What keeps me working is the love I have for humans. I also work as an health care assistant for seniors in their homes and at Ayre Manor in this community and I absolutely love it. I use the money I make to help run my small business and to pay off my real estate career that will be launching this summer! I have a very holistic outlook on health, seeing the positive effects I have on people when I communicate and care for them is very rewarding and motivational. I enjoy all different kinds of people and I naturally encourage hope and positivity wherever I go!
Looking back, knowing what you now know, what would you have done differently?
One thing I would of done differently is practice more self-love. Once you really start to pay attention to your feelings and set boundaries for yourself the rest will always fall into place, and very quickly.
At what point should an entrepreneur take the “leap of faith” and start up their business?
There ain’t no better time than the present! When the time feels right, go for it!… don’t be afraid to take that leap of faith. Pay attention to your thoughts regarding business and make time for brainstorming creative business plans.
Any financial management advice or tips you’d like to offer?
Educate yourself and get expert advise. Talk to as many people as you can so you can learn from their success and their failures.
Anything else you would like to add?
Follow your dreams and don’t be afraid of change. The sky is the limit!
