Tis the Week Before Christmas…

Santa-LR

Yes, I know we are just 5 days away from Christmas but I wanted to send this out to all my friends in direct sales.  I know it is geared towards ThirtyOne (courtesy of a Thirty One sister) BUT I am sure you can substitute in some of your own words…

Twas the week before Christmas ,

When all through the land,

My Goal was not met…. and I needed a hand.

My goals were drawn up, on paper with care,

I was sitting, fingers crossed, hoping sales would be there.

My Children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While the thought of “no paycheck in January”, filled me with dread.

My husband told me I could do it.

Oh no – the pressure was high

But my doubts consumed me, I’m not going to lie.

When out on Facebook an idea was there,

It gave us permission with wisdom and care.

To pick up the heavy phone and raise some clatter.

Because if you do, your paycheck just might be fatter.

So away to my back office, I flew in a flash

I printed my contact list like I ran a 100 yard dash.

But picking up the phone, as those of us in Direct Sales probably know

Was the most dreaded task when you NEED your business to grow.

I know it was time to swallow my pride.

This was crunch time and “go” time .

From my goals, I would not hide.

I needed a plan and I needed one quick.

Before I backed out…..you see my stomach felt sick.

I knew it would take more than Facebook gimmicks this late in the game.

But what if I speak with them and they think I’m lame?

What if I call Shelly, Donna, Karen and Susan?

What if I talk to Becky and Lisa but no one finds me amusing?

I was frozen and frightened and felt backed into a wall.

But I am smart and I know I NEEDED TO CALL.

So I sat at my desk, knowing I just had to try.

No more excuses or I would kiss my paycheck goodbye.

So I picked up the phone and I dialed it with fright

But what I found out was a shocking delight.

Most calls went to voice mail, it was easy as pie.

And talking to my customers did NOT cause me to die!

I found connecting with my customers to feel like a reward.

With my doubts and my fears, I had struck an accord.

After all, those customers, helped my business to grow.

Without them, my dreams and plans I could not sow.

It was good service and connection was owed – oh and rapport.

I owed it to them for their unwavering support.

I called the whole list. I felt it was a must.

I’m back in the game folks! No more cobwebs or dust!

So if you are like me and you have doubts in your head,

Please know you too have nothing to dread.

So pick up that phone and call YOUR customers one and all.

And I wish you success as you finish out Winter.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Spring and Fall Together

Maybe you have heard the rumors?  Maybe you thought it was a “scam”?  Guess what?

It is FACT!!

For the first time in Thirty One’s history, you are able to shop from BOTH the Spring/Summer and the Fall/Winter catalog at the same time.  Say what????

You can order from either catalog or something from each catalog.

Want the awesome Large Utility Tote in Starfish print BUT you really want to grab something in the NEW Posh Purple for a gift in early August.  

Guess what you can get them both… OR maybe you have had enough of the summer stuff and want a Fall product but still want the July Customer special.  Yup, you can do that too!

The best part is, you can get the July Customer special too.  So when you spend $35, you get to pick TWO of this month’s special.

Want some even BIGGER news…..

This is a great time to join our “pink bubble”…. WHY?  Join today, and you can have your first party BEFORE your kit even arrives.  Share the Spring and Fall catalogs online with friends and family, let them take advantage of the July Customer special and you can have your first commission check in time for school shopping in August.

After Christmas Sales

The day after Christmas – a HUGE day for retailers between returns, after Christmas sales to clear out inventory and everyone using their “gift” cards to get the best deals.  Well, let’s add Thirty One to the mix!15492136_10211696471794095_1349140670617066369_nThis time of year is a love hate relationship for me.  We are preparing for a catalog change. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE all of the NEWESS. I can’t wait to weed out my inventory and get new product. I HATE the fact some of my favorite products are always on the chopping block. If you are in direct sales in any way – a customer, a hostess, a team member – you totally get this.

Here is what is going away at the end of January (if not sooner)….

I know when some of my favorites like the Go To Tote and the Perfect Party Thermal area headed out, there is something AMAZING things being revealed in the new catalog.  Did you think I would reveal the new catalog?

15317734_1130002677049134_6690085779265471014_nActually, you don’t have to wait very long because when you make a purchase at the Outlet Sale December 27 – 29th, you will receive a NEW Spring Catalog and February sale flyer with your order.
