Summer Kick Off

No, I am not crazy…. well maybe a little but I am super excited about April and all of the newness coming to Thirty One. I am blessed to be part of a company which helps us reach new heights every month and this month is NO exception.

Did you check out the video of our NEW Summer Essentials Guide?  Back by popular demand is the Bring a Bottle Thermal, the Cool Cinch Thermal and the Pinch Top Eyeglass Case.

  

As a result of my AMAZING customers, I again have the opportunity to present a limited edition of products which are being tested for future catalogs, called Global Inspiration.  

Thirty One is introducing a NEW line of products called “Baby by ThirtyOne”.  Know someone who is having a baby?  I can set up a gift registry for them so they can share their favorite prints, products and personalizations with friends and family.

How would you like to try all of this NEWNESS with Thirty One?

#1 – Becoming a consultant in April has a multitude of rewards… FIRST, there are FIVE kit options to pick from?  Have you ever thought of doing what I do?  Need some extra money to pay for the kids summer activities?  Or maybe it is some me time?  Or you just want the amazing discounts on products, up to 40% off retail price?  Whatever the reason, Thirty One has an option for you.  Just getting your tax refund back?  What better way to make your money work for you then starting your own business.  BUT wait, there is more!  If you have $1,000 in sales in your first 30 days as a consultant, you will get the FULL cost of your kit in a rebate!

In addition to your commission of $250 (on a $1000 party), you will get a $250 credit in your back office to purchase supplies, a product incentive of MORE FREE products (April only) and you will receive the full cost of your kit back.  Sound tempting?  Have questions?  I will be happy to answer any question you have – my business is an open book.

#2 – April’s Hostess Special may cinch the deal for you…. With your $600 party, you will be able to pick up to ANY three items from the Summer Essential Guide for up to 70% off the retail price!  It includes the Getaway Tote and the In the Clear Tote.  Believe me it is not hard to get to $600 in sales…. an average Facebook party is $500 and believe me YOU are not average. 

Host a 31-minute Facebook party with me as your guest’s personal shopper.  The party is 5 days total from start to finish.  I will coach every step of the way to make sure you get as much as possible for FREE or at a discounted price.  Easy peasy, right? No fuss. No mess!

#3 – If shopping is more your style, the April Customer Special is the perfect time to stock up on the gifts for Mother and Father’s Day, graduation, weddings, birthdays  or anniversaries. With TWO new products available at a great price…

NEW Personalization Options: 

So, who is ready to join in the fun?  Book a girl’s get together or a fundraiser…

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

March Is Roaring In Like a Lion

I know the weather forecast doesn’t show it but believe me, it is SPRING at Thirty One Gifts.  I love seeing all of the NEW spring prints and products with even more arriving in April but I don’t want to spoil any surprises!  You will just have to wait!

Let’s do a “flashback” to a time when you got new outfits for Easter.  Remember those new shoes, new dress, a hat and of course, the cute little purse.  My daughter may kill me but I actually love this picture of the two of us at Easter.  She wasn’t a “bag girl” but she definitely was a hat girl who loved to have her picture taken.  

Yes, I squirrled for a moment, the norm right?  Why am I talking about Easter and purses?The March Customer Special at Thirty One is all about purses……

I love the Studio Thirty One!!!!

But I will always be a Retro Metro Girl.. I have been having fun with the new Retro Metro Hobo Crossbody and the Super Swap It Pocket

Seven Years and No Itch!

The sevenyear itch is a psychological term suggesting happiness in a relationship declines after around year seven.  I know it usually applies to a marriage BUT for some I think it pertains to their business or their jobs.  When I was working in the non-profit world, I would get the “itch”.  I needed a change.  I wanted something new.  I wanted excitement.

Why am I talking about the “seven-year itch”?  No, I am not thinking of changing direct sales companies.  No, my marriage is great – we haven’t hit the 7 year mark yet.  LOL.

Today is my seventh anniversary with Thirty One.

Struggling with trying to remember BUT grateful I have blogged about this before.  Here is how the story goes…..

See, the truth is I joined Thirty One in 2009 and didn’t do much with it.  Yup, I was a kitknapper. I had a few sales but nothing much and it wasn’t long before I went inactive.

I can’t remember exactly how or why it all happened – God had a plan.  I started following Hope Shortt on Facebook and I read her story.  On February 7th, 2011, I talked with her and told her I wanted to join her Thirty One team. She asked me “what my why” was?  Kind of the standard question when someone joins your team…

I was nervous and being a “people pleasing person” I told her I wanted to earn some extra money.  I had a good job – Chief Operating Officer for a non-profit and who had time for much of anything else.  BUT the truth was, deep down I had a big dream but fear and doubt crept in along with Negative Nellie so I stuffed it down deep.  I started sharing the products at vendor/craft shows, not wanting to do home parties and really not interested in having a team.   Recruiting wasn’t an option because I joined the day before the FREEZE. No, not the weather although it was cold; Thirty One froze enrollment because they were growing so fast.  I was relieved. I had been doing craft/ vendor shows for over 20 years, so it was going to be easy. Hope listened and said she would be there to help when I needed her. No pressure just support and kindness.2014-08-09-18-17-48-4

So started my journey with Thirty One.  I did LOTS of vendor events. Still NO home parties.  Fear and doubt kept me company.   I didn’t have much confidence – I know amazing, right?  This was so far out of my comfort zone.

I got my first TWO potential recruits during the freeze.  I was honest with both of them from the start,  I was going to be learning along with them. Believe it or not, they still joined as soon as the freeze lifted and quickly qualified with $1,000 in sales.  I was now a Senior Consultant. YIKES!  I wasn’t sure what it meant but it was okay.  I was having fun and slowly building confidence.  Then my first home office lead wanted a HOME PARTY! Panic set in… it was someone I didn’t know and I was clueless.  I stumbled my way through it – no additional booked parties or recruits but I had sales and it was kind of fun.

My FIRST Thirty One National Conference was August of 2012.  It was there I set a goal and decided tout my dream on paper and go for Leadership. The goal was to be Director BEFORE National Conference 2013. The stats say those who go to national conference earn more – TRUE! Those who go to national conference – PROMOTE – TRUE! In October, 2012 I DIQed and in January 2013, I earned my $1,000 Director Bonus.  I had gained confidence as a consultant but being a Director brought new fears and challenges.

At National Conference 2013 along with my daughter and members of the Rays of Hope Team. I walked across stage and was CELEBRATED as a NEW Thirty One Director. Tears of joy flowed freely all weekend and continue each time I think back to the moment. Hope Shortt, my National Executive Director, hugged me on stage.  I struggle with memories but the emotion of walking across the stage stays with me bringing me to tears each time I think of it.

Since then my why has changed so much. I no longer work full-time and we rely on my Thirty One business as the second income in the house.  It pays bills and allows us to travel a little bit.  It allows me to work from home as I struggle some days with my MS.

I sometimes struggle with my “why” and learning to DREAM BIG. I still get nervous before a Home party.  I continue to work on personal development because inner gremlins still on occasionally haunt me.  I am blessed with a sisterhood across the country who helps me when I am struggling, who celebrates with me and who encourages me when the struggle is real.  My team continues to grow and inspires me everyday.  They accept me for who I am and have helped me to learn to love me for me.

I would say the biggest blessing from my Thirty One business is the confidence I gained which was lost when I was in HIGH SCHOOL. Yes, I earn FREE products! Yes, I am paying off debt & travel as a result of my commission checks!  Yes, I found a sisterhood I didn’t know existed in my Thirty One sisters! Yes, I have grown in my walk with God, learning to trust and believe his will will be done in my business!

The seven year itch and some vision casting with the Beacon of Hope Team (my upline’s team) had helped me to focus on my why again.  To Make a Difference in as many lives as possible while becoming debt free.  I am being intentional in all I do this year.  I know it is only February but January was a good start…. now to keep moving forward.

A $99 pink box almost seven years ago, CHANGED MY LIFE. Could it be the thing which changes yours?  Till February 28th, you can also join for $1 and I will help you get started…. which would you pick?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Have you ever thought “I can do what she does”?  Of course you can!  Whether you are just looking for the discounts for you, your friends and your family or a part-time job or maybe you need a break for some girl time; Thirty One may be the answer for you.  There are TWO ways to join until the end of February:

First is the traditional enrollment kit with over $400 in products for just $99

OR, if you are strapped for cash, why not try this

Whichever way you pick, I will do your launch party via Facebook (or a home party, if you are local).  Start making money as soon as you enroll.  Base commission is 25% but you could make up to 40% with the NEW Thirty One marketplace.  Lots of options to help you design a business which works for you.

What Can You Buy for $1?

It’s the new year and the holiday bills are trickling in…As we try to figure out how to stretch the dollars in the new year, we are looking for deals.  ShopRite has the CAN CAN sale.  Retail stores are having “inventory sales”.  Have you ever thought about why a “dollar store” is so popular?  You can now buy anything and everything at the dollar store.  Sometimes we even buy things we don’t need just because it is one dollar.

What if I could offer you something for $1 which would earn you additional money for about 20 minutes a day or 4 hours a week?  Would you be interested?

What if you could start your own business for $1.00?  Seems crazy right?  No risk involved, just the opportunity to earn some money as well as get some FREE and discounted products.  Would you jump on it as fast as you would the “stuff” from the dollar store?

I shared the details in my VIP Customer group FIRST.  Actually as soon as Thirty One announced the opportunity.  See this why it is important to be a part of my VIP group?

Just when I thought this company could not get any better, they offer this AMAZING deal.  

Yes, you can actually join for $1.00.  No, you won’t receive the enrollment kit BUT you will get the chance to buy one once you earn some money.

Maybe you are thinking…. I can do what she does. Or, I don’t have time.  Or, I am not a sales person.  Or I could use an extra $300 per month.  The truth is, when I joined Thirty One 7 years ago, I was a crazy busy COO for a non-profit who commuted 4 hours a day round trip to work.  Yes, I was a crazy lady.  Still am but now I don’t commute.  LOL.

Yes, I made money from the beginning.  How?  I carried and used the products.  I shared it with my co-workers.  I handed out mini catalogs everywhere I went.  Oh, did I mention I was planning my wedding at the same time.  I get life is crazy busy – kids, work, family… and the list goes on.

So, there are TWO options to joining our Thirty One family and the Rays of Hope Team. Check this out..

You join for $1.00.  You invite your friends to your launch party (online or home) and I will do it for you.  You receive hostess benefits (FREE and discounted products), you get to keep all of the bookings from the party, you earn commission (25%) and business credit (25%**). 

OR you can grab the Spring/Summer Enrollment Kit in either the BOLD or the Black and white…

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the details on the NEW Start Swell program where you earn credit towards business supplies….

If this was in effect when I joined, I would have had $360 in credit – not bad for a hobbiest or a part time gig.  Yes, I had no intention of doing Thirty One full-time when I started.

Look at what you can earn as a Hostess during the month of February.  Look at this AWESOME bundle available ONLY to hostesses for a minimum of a $600 party! I get it.  I have been the crazy momma  but I can help you make it quick and easy!  No big presentation, just a party on the go – complete in about 1 hour. OR how about an online party? We can do a 31-minute Facebook party.
