Welcome to my website! First things first, please allow me to introduce myself… My name is Jen LaCour and I am an Independent Wine Consultant with the largest direct selling winery in the nation, mostly known for our award-winning wines and lucrative business opportunity.
I absolutely love my job! I love that my job allows me to bring delicious artisan wines into the homes of so many, provide a fun environment to learn about, share, and experience wine from the comfort of the living room, as well as provide life-changing opportunities for those that have become a part of my organization over the years! My job has completely changed my life in so many good ways and that’s why I’m here sharing it with you.
It all started in September of 2009. I had just given birth to my youngest of 3 boys, and, as a full-time software developer working remotely from home who NEVER had adult interaction, I knew I needed something for me! When I found WineShop At Home after a quick Google search, I knew I had found my calling – I’ve always had an incredible passion for wine, and I just knew this would suit me. Without even blinking, I jumped in with both feet – as a complete hobbyist. That’s right – I was looking for something FUN, not another JOB (can you relate?!). I mean, how on earth could I possibly build a business when I was working full-time and raising an elementary-age child, a toddler, and a newborn?! So, for the first 9 months, I took it SUPER slow. Then, I began attending local training meetings, began getting to know other consultants and enjoyed the camaraderie, then finally decided I was ready to get a bit more intentional with the business. Within a few short months, I earned my first leadership promotion – and when I got that first paycheck in my hand is when the light bulb suddenly turned on. However, just 2 short weeks later, my husband, Rick, was laid off from his job and we were faced with some tough decisions. We needed to figure out how to make some money (and fast!). When I chose WineShop At Home, I didn’t realize that it would quickly become an answer to our prayers. That year I threw myself into truly learning how to run a business part-time while raising a family and still maintaining my responsibilities at work, all the while, growing a fantastic team, earning 2 more promotions, and my first incentive trip – to ITALY! And now, I sit with a very successful team across the country, have climbed the ranks of our company’s compensation plan, have a fantastic group of leaders in my organization, and have walked away from Corporate America to pursue my real passion of empowering others….and “mom”-ing hard!
What I did not know is that through the learning process, I would figure out my #1 passion and my purpose. I love many things about the direct selling industry but there is one area that I love and have poured the most time into and that is helping others achieve their dreams and grow into amazing leaders. The comment that I hear most often, is “Jen believed in me before I ever believed in myself”. Those 10 little words are not only 100% true, but it also means the world to me and it’s the primary reason I do what I do. I truly feel that anyone can achieve what I have in this business by just learning some skill sets and working really hard. My goal with this website is to help you become the best version of yourself you can be. I will pass on the skill sets I have learned to be the best leader you can be!!
