I’m so excited to officially launch the Million Dollar Bathrobe Brand! It has been in the works for quite a while so to see launch day arrive is an amazing feeling. Today on the blog I will be talking about the story behind the name Million Dollar Bathrobe.
I started my Monat business when I was 5 months pregnant and due to a medical complication, was under strict instructions to do very minimal activity. That meant most of my days were spent on the couch. I didn’t want to let that stop me though so I started working my business while lying on the couch, in my bathrobe. I worked hard and built my business from my phone. My business grew as my belly grew!! Once my daughter was born, I continued to work my business while taking care of her at home.
I didn’t care how I looked because it was my authentic self – I was a work-from-home mom with two kids and a newborn baby, I didn’t have time to put makeup on! I loved that I was able to work my business while sitting in a comfortable bathrobe.
After I became the top income earner in Canada, somebody told me that they thought I should ditch the bathrobe for clothes that made me look the part of a top income earner – expensive clothes, nice purses, perfect makeup. I was the type of person who loved shopping at walmart and wearing my shoes until they were falling apart so even though it all sounded great, I knew it just wasn’t me.
When I was younger my full time career had been in trying to live up to other people’s standards of beauty and success. Let me tell you, it’s a very tiring career and it’s hard to keep up! People are always changing their standards. I learned that it was better to just be true to who I was and what I loved. That meant living authentically without worrying about what I wore or how my hair looked. It was so liberating!
I chose to keep the bathrobe on instead of trying to be someone I wasn’t. I knew that by looking perfect on camera even though I had three kids running around me would not be an accurate portrayal of my life. I became known as the one who always wore her bathrobe while doing Facebook live videos and team trainings. I didn’t mind telling people that I had just changed a dirty diaper or had only gotten a couple hours of sleep the night before. People were attracted to the lifestyle because it was one they could relate to.
I knew my bathrobe and what it represented had captured something important about life and how it was meant to be lived. I wanted to take this and invite others to join in on my discoveries. This would be something bigger than myself. I wanted people to know that they can succeed as well, from their bathrobe (or not!), if they wanted to! I wanted to create an image that reminded people that no matter where you are in life, no matter what you do, pursue your dreams and never let anyone stop you.
