What are you passionate about? Passion is defined as: a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something. Over the years, my passion for things has changed – I have to admit that I don’t think I was really passionate about anything until I started volunteering with the South Jersey AIDS Alliance. That is when I started to understand what the word passion was all about. My passion for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS continued for many years (about 13+) and everyone I talked with knew it. As I left the field of HIV/AIDS and began working for Bethel (a non-profit), my passion became a larger group of underserved populations (the homeless, the underemployed, etc.).
Then Thirty One entered my life. In the beginning it was just a hobby with a mere thought that it could be more. When I made the decision to leave Bethel after 7 years due to the long commute (4 hours round-trip daily), I saw a glimmer of passion in my Thirty One business. Every time I do a party or talk to someone about the company or the products – my passion glows. The sparks that keep my passion flamed are my hostess, my customers and my team. I LOVE seeing them grow and their passion get fueled by the possibilities this business has for them. So, why do I let Satan steal that passion some days? You may know what I mean – those days when nothing seems to go right or there are no parties filling your calendar or potential recruits. How about those days when jealousy of what others have in their business tries to latch on and diminish your passion? Let’s be honest, we all have days when the pink balloon deflates a little, right? No matter what your business is, there are some days when we forget about the passion that got us to where we are, right? John Maxwell’s word of the day was PASSION.

So, I ask you again – what are YOU passionate about? Share your passion with us.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
