Lorraine Lea is proud to support people to build success on their own terms

Cassie Dodds

regional leader, qld

I joined Lorraine Lea a little over 12 years ago when my now 13 year old was just a baby, honestly it was just to have a bit of fun and earn a bit of guilt free money to get my hair & nails done and to feel "normal" again after being trapped at home with a baby.

Fast forward 12 years and I've built a multi-million dollar business which has meant that I never had to return to a "real" job with a "real" boss and honestly I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm in love with our products and our people and I feel so proud that every day I get to help women create a haven in their home and that I get to show regular women like me how they can have their cake and eat it too!

I started with Lorraine Lea 8 years ago . I was at a point where I was 56 , considering retirement and I was invited to join Lorraine Lea. I knew straightaway it would be easy and I didn’t hesitate …thinking it would be a little hobby and maybe we could have a holiday from it. Very quickly a hobby became a full time business that blossomed into a beautiful lifestyle.

The positive impact my Lorraine Lea career has had on my family is indescribable. Succeeding in this career has allowed me to demonstrate to my children that with a good work ethic, anything is possible, no matter who you are or where you've come from. There's no doubt in my mind that Lorraine Lea has been the best thing I could have done for my family.

Tracy Walker

independent stylist, wa

When my marriage broke down, I was left with 3 young kids and a lot of financial stress. I had a mortgage I couldn't afford and just kept getting further into debt. Even though I had a part-time government job, I needed something else to help make ends meet, and that's when I turned to Lorraine Lea. 

Katrina Smart

independent stylist, vic

Home decorating is my passion, and I was a Lorraine Lea customer for 18 years before I considered becoming an Independent Stylist. Initially, it was the 40% discount on product that appealed to me, but when my husband took a significant pay cut to start an apprenticeship, the profits from my business became integral in supplementing family finances.

Kiri O'Brien

independent stylist, wa

Kiri O'Brien always wanted to be a stay at home mum, but after selling the Florist she had owned and operated for 8 years she realised she missed having a social outlet during the day. The Lorraine Lea opportunity appealed to her because it allowed her 'me' time while also contributing to the family finances. Today, Kiri has built a significant business, that has seen her on company trips to Paris and Singapore, and earning more than she could have as a florist, all while still being able to be home with her children.

Mandy Hudson

independent stylist, qld

For Mandy Hudson, her decision making has always revolved around what's best for her three kids. Swapping work in the mines for a home business when she became pregnant with her first child, Mandy was familiar with the flexibility her Lorraine Lea business could provide. So, when she began parenting three children on her own, it made perfect sense to take her operation to the next level. Now, with a business that generates sales of more than $1.6 million a year, she encourages everyone to seriously consdier a Lorraine Lea career.

Mel Way

independent stylist, vic

Suffering a breakdown as a result of her high-pressure job, Mel began looking for an alternative career option. She wanted something that gave her the flexibility to work around her health needs, while still providing a good income. Lorraine Lea ticked all the boxes. As her health improved, Mel was able to put more energy into her business and could see the results. As a Stylist, she works less hours and earns much more than she ever did before, without any of the stress she’d felt in her previous job.

Melinda Felix

independent stylist, vic

When she decided to start her Lorraine Lea business, Melinda Felix, was struggling to make ends meet. After seeing an ad in her local paper, she invested her last $100 on her Starter Kit deposit and has since built a successful business that has paid for her wedding, investment properties and the building of her own home. Encouraged by the flexibility and earning potential her business provides, Melinda has been able to build a career that has grown with her family.
