All About Me

Let me guess: You’re here because you actually want to be organized and save time.

And not only that, but you have a passion for helping others – even if you’re not 100% sure how to do that yet.

I call this The HOPE Factor.

If you’re a busy mom, business owner or even both who wants to have a system for organizing so you have more freedom to do what you love, and make a difference, then you have the HOPE Factor.

It’s tough when you don’t feel like you have enough motivation or enough time to organize either your home or your office. But when you have the desire to make that change you need to right tools. Consider me your tool belt for organization.

About Me: H.O.P.E. – Helping Other People Everyday

My life has been a journey including: growing up in middle class family, parent’s divorce, drug addiction, bulimia, single mom, social worker, entrepreneur and now a wife.  The road has not always been easy but with God’s help, I have survived with many gifts and talents that I want to share with those around me.

When I am asked “my why” for what I do, most would expect me to say the money or the flexible schedule BUT the truth is that I want to make a difference in the lives of others.

See 26 years ago, I was that struggling momma.  I was a single mom who was an addict – work AND drugs.  When the bottom fell out, I had nothing.  I headed to detox and rehab not knowing what the future would bring.  All I knew was that I had this adorable 2-year old that needed me.  When I came home from rehab, we were homeless.  We stayed with my aunt for 3 months till we got our home back.  It was a struggle.

I had to tell my baby “no” many times.  I had to find ways to do fun things that were cheap. I had to be creative for holidays and parties.  We shopped at thrift stores.  We used food pantries.  We were blessed by amazing friends and family who helped us along the way.

When I became a social worker, kids became my heart.  Kids suffer because of no fault of their own and I wanted them to know that someone cared. I wanted to see their face light up with a smile. So began my journey of making a difference.

What does that have to do with my Thirty One business?  It is because of my awesome customers, hostesses and team that I am able to make a difference in the lives of woman and children.  From Chemo Comfort bags to Easter baskets to our Fight Hunger Campaign – it is all about making a difference in the lives of others.

So won’t you join me on my journey…

Let’s make a difference in the lives of others together.  Let’s help a woman plan their first party in their home after a messy divorce. Let’s make people smile with happy mail. Let’s raise funds for that family that just can’t afford to pay their bills or for their child’s extra activities.  Let’s help a woman have their own business whether it is for extra money to pay the bills, me time or a career.

Thank you for sharing this journey with me…Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
