Everything Spooky….

YEAH!!  October has arrived and I am so excited.  Since Irma caused our cruise to cancel, I am headed to North Carolina this month to spend some time with my daughter for her birthday.  October also means football is in full swing.  Despite all of the negatives in the NFL, I do like football so I may have to switch to cheering for college football instead of the J-E-T-S!

At Thirty One – October means the kick off of some many things….

There is tailgating, football, Halloween, birthdays (in our family), anniversaries, Thanksgiving and yes, Christmas. Here are some of the EXCITING things happening at Thirty One!  Thirty One launches our Holiday Gift Guide as well as our Online Exclusives which make great gifts for the holidays…

Product Review: Midway Hobo

Letting customers Product Test your products is AMAZING!  I usually pick about 6 products I want to share.  I have my customers fill out the form and then select those who will be testers.  If you CLICK HERE, you can enter the next round of product testing which will take place in October.

Let me tell you about Kacie... she is a regular customer who is a Younique consultant and a stay at home mom.  I love when she reviews her own product so I couldn’t wait to see what she had to say about the Midway Hobo.  She LOVES cross body bags since she has two little ones who keep her busy.  Here is the what she had to say….

Hope let me test out the Midway Hobo this week! She sent me the Caramel Charm colorway, which matched pretty well with all the photos I’ve seen of it online and in the catalog. If anything, the caramel shade leans slightly more toward orange instead of brown, but it is still a beautiful color for Fall! I really like that I could get one to match my All About the Benjamins wallet if I wanted.

This thing is HUGE! But it’s also not! 🙂 It was large enough to carry around all the things I normally carry with me in a purse (and it fits the Swap-it Pocket!) but the overall size was still smaller than your average tote bag, meaning it wasn’t too bulky to carry around shopping. It’s the perfect size for a mom purse! I could easily throw in a change of clothes for my preschooler, eliminating the need to carry a separate diaper bag. I really liked the exterior cell phone pocket. It held my Google Pixel (which could also fit inside the interior slip pockets) and it felt secure enough that I didn’t need to worry about it falling out. It’s a fairly large phone, so I’m surprised that it fit. There’s a great interior zipped pocket that I really liked too. I put my Kindle Fire inside and it only took up half the pocket. That’s how roomy it is!

And now my personal deal breaker; the strap. If this bag had an adjustable cross-body length strap I would probably own it in every color. I love the pockets and the space it provides. The material the bag is made of lends itself to easy cleaning and great stain resistance (I LOVE the fact that pet hair doesn’t stick to it!) but it’s also a tad slippery. If you’re able to hold the bag against your body or “catch” it with one hand while you’re walking, this is no big deal. Unfortunately, I’m a mom with 2 young kids, so I’m constantly reaching for little hands to cross a parking lot, or bending over to pick up something they dropped on the floor, or just needing the use of BOTH my hands in general. I couldn’t keep this on my shoulder without holding on to it. The constant slipping was driving me crazy. I found myself flipping the strap upside down so the side with the decorative stitching was facing my shoulder. This gave me some extra “grip”, but it wasn’t enough to hold the strap in place. On the very rare occasion I was out running errands by myself this bag was awesome, but it’s not something I can carry around all the time.

Overall, I recommend this bag. It’s a great design, with plenty of space, and it comes in some gorgeous colors. You just need to decide if your life can keep up with the shorter strap length.

Thank you Kacie for this AWESOME review.  Kacie said “I wish there wish the Cafe Crossbody and the Midway Hobo had a baby – the combination of the two bags would be AMAZING!”.  Definitely a suggestion for Thirty One Voice of the Customer.  Who knows, this could be a new bag.

Be sure to check out Kacie’s Facebook page so we can share the love.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

 

On My Way…..NOT!

Today’s blog post has been re-written many times.  First filled with the excitement of earning the Leadership Incentive trip and heading on a FREE cruise with my daughter.  Then it was about the delayed cruise and spending some time in NC with Belinda.  This morning, I am re-writing again…
The Leadership Incentive Trip has officially been cancelled. Irma entered our lives and changed everything!  No, I don’t mean the cute clothes from LuLa Roe.  I mean the devastating hurricane which is leaving its mark every where it lands.  Devastating the Carribean as it makes it way to Florida and the US.  
I will admit, I had a pity party last night.  I long for some quality time with my daughter but sadly if Irma continues on the projected track, they will be in its path.  I have weathered many a hurricane but at the ripe old age of 60, I decided staying home was probably a better idea.  
Since the blog posts are already written for the next week while I was supposed to be traveling, I will still be sharing some of my top bog posts from the past.  Some may be tweaked but others will just be “throwbacks” of my most popular ones.  I have been reflecting on the earning period for the Leadership Incentive trip and why I was successful this time when I hadn’t been in the past.
If you are trying to change an aspect of your life, here are some tips which helped me – thank you Patty Lennon

1. Decide to succeed.

There is a goal you are striving for right now which is deeply personal and vital to you. Remove the possibility of NOT succeeding from your mind right now. This means each time you fall down, you get back up because any failure is temporary.  I will say, utilizing this mindset every month has helped me reach my monthly goals even during the dreaded “J” months.

I wanted to earn this trip as a gift for hubby for our 5th wedding anniversary.  I wanted him to experience my “pink bubble” so he would understand why it is so important to me.  So, in my mind success became inevitable. I was no longer willing to NOT succeed. Which leads to …

2. Get Support.

When you are reaching for a goal you have not achieved before whether it’s growing your business to a new level, changing your health or improving your relationships you will do far better if you have help.  Who can support you in achieving your goal?

I have been sharing my monthly goals with everyone – my team, my customers and basically anyone who would listen. They celebrated and encouraged me every step of the way.  When Negative Nellie stopped for a visit, I looked for someone to help me kick her to the curb.

3. Don’t Give Up.

Whatever goal is most important to you right now it is critical you not give up, especially if the goal is related to your business. The truth is most things fail the first time  around especially in business – whether it’s a new message, promotion or marketing campaign. It is NORMAL.  Everyone falls down. Your choice (and the choice which defines those who succeed) is whether you get back up.  Everything is possible when you make the decision to succeed. No matter what happens do not give up!

With my first LIT earned, what is next for me and my business?  I will admit planning for September has been a struggle.  A holiday weekend led into getting ready for a week away.  I was hoping earning the trip would keep me motivated but the truth is, Vacation Veronica is knocked on my door. As I ponder what to do this week, I am setting my goal for September and am working on a plan to earn the Leadership Incentive Trip again next year.

Using these tips has helped me in my business so I am I am going to apply them to my weight loss journey to see what happens.  I am just 7 pounds away from being back at goal weight so it is non-negotiable.  I want to celebrate reaching my goal and not look back.

The truth is “the Divine will light your path with miracles to make it easier as you go.”  Send your positive energy into the Universe.  What is your goal?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Fall is Around the Corner

Fall is here at Thirty One.  Yes, the new catalog started last month BUT since we are headed into Labor Day weekend, doesn’t it mean it is officially fall.   I hear the GROANS from kids and cheers from moms & dads.

Now it is time to switch gears and start thinking about all things fall – tailgating, football, Halloween, Thanksgiving and yes, Christmas.  It is an early start to the gift giving season and Thirty One has a solution for all of your gift giving needs!

What Will $1 Buy You?

The Back to School sales have started.  Everywhere you turn there is a sale on school supplies, right?  We rush to Staples (or Target or Walmart) to grab this week’s special for $.25 – $1.00.

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 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 have been sharing the details in my VIP Customer group for awhile.  Actually as soon as Thirty One announced the opportunity back in July.  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 6 1/2 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 that year.  I get life is crazy busy – kids, work, family… and the list goes on.

When you join us this month before the holiday shopping season starts,  you get to make some money so you could have a CASH holiday season.  Wouldn’t it be nice? 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 received 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%**). 

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 August.  Look at this NEW limited edition product available to hostesses for a minimum of a $200 party! But the best part is, if your party jumps to $600 or more, you get this for FREE!  Two bags for the price of one.

I get it.  I have been the crazy momma  but I can help you make it quick and easy!  I will be happy to come to the baseball field.  At the pool – I will come there. No big presentation, just a party on the go – complete in about 1 hour. OR how about an online party? We can do a Facebook party for 31 minutes LIVE or a theme party over 4 days. Lots of themes to pick from with fun and games.
