Hi! I am Leslie Popplewell, National Team Leader at Matilda Jane Clothing! Thank you for your interest in Matilda Jane and for taking time to tell me a bit about yourself! I am excited to share more details about how this little side gig turned into a full blown career since 2007.
I started with Matilda Jane in the fall of 2007 and it has allowed me to combine my passion for fashion and passion for helping little girls and ladies feel confident and beautiful! We are growing all across the country and I would love to invite you to explore the possibility of trying something new this year just for YOU.
I have built the largest and highest producing team at Matilda Jane Clothing and can promise to be your biggest cheerleader. I know this business inside and out and know what it takes to be successful. Building a business isn’t easy, as you may know, but the payoff has been far more than I could have ever imagined. This may be something you are considering to build something great just for you, to have extra spending money, to dress your little girl and yourself, or to replace a career you just don’t love.
I can promise that this opportunity will afford you many new relationships, a JOY in helping others feel beautiful, and a paycheck that you can be proud of with just a little heart and hustle. I promise to be in touch with ALL THE THINGS you need to know before saying YES to opening your very own MJ boutique business.
Matilda Jane is an amazing company and clothing brand. I am so grateful to be a part of such a special sisterhood that loves keeping little girls little. I started out as one of Leslie’s first customers and Janes. I actually bought my daughter her first pieces about year before she could actually wear them. I absolutely fell in love with the clothing and its unique style that set it apart from all the other clothing brands. Matilda Jane was a staple in Kennedy’s closet for many years to come. Eventually, she decided she was “too big” for MJ, but I continued buying for myself. When the opportunity to become a trunk keeper arose I knew I really wanted to do it, but just wasn’t sure of the timing since my daughter was now older and I work full time as a teacher. So I talked it over with my husband and realized I was still super passionate about the clothing and knew this was something enjoyable that I could do for me. I’m so thankful I said yes and look forward to where this journey leads. Leslie is an incredible mentor and friend to lead the path, so I know it will be great.
I am in my twelfth season and a Senior Trunk Keeper with Matilda Jane and have a small team of wonderful women! It has been such a blessing in my life. I thought I loved it as a customer but have grown to love it more as a Trunk Keeper. I love the relationships I have developed with my customers and sister trunk keepers. Leslie Popplewell leads by example and is a true leader and friend. As a result, I am learning to be a leader, too. I am proud to be a part of a company that has the overriding goal “to bring happiness into the lives of our customers”.
Matilda Jane became part of my life in 2009. I started hosting trunk shows and purchasing for my granddaughters, my daughter and myself. There was something special with every piece I purchased. My love for the brand continues today as a trunk keeper of 61/2 years. It was something that I started as hobby and turned it into a successful business building a team of 13 ladies. The relationships I have developed over the years with my sister trunk keepers and my customers will be cherished forever. Matilda Jane is so much more that Clothes!!!
