It’s 2017 and the whole world is addicted to the internet. Is there anything you can’t find or do online? As it turns out, yes. There’s at least one thing you can’t simply order from a website and have it show up at your front door. You cannot buy Lularoe online.
Confession time: I want to be a millionaire. It’s a cultural and financial goal for me- I want to enter the hallowed ranks of millionaires, and I want to have the financial security that it can provide.
