Fall in Love With Thirty One

 

 

I know, I say it every time a new catalog comes out, right?  It is the BEST one yet. Those who are part of my monthly club or partying in August have already seen the awesomeness of the new catalog.  See that is why you need to join in the fun or be part of the “club”.

As a consultant, we had the chance to not only see everything first hand BUT we get the chance to buy a few of the new products at a DEEP discount to share with our customers.  Maybe you’re thinking…. I can do what she does. I could use an extra $300 per month to help with bills or have for the kids activities or save (whatever your reason), then join my team, the Rays of Hope. Join us 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?

Pick either enrollment kit – the Signature for $99 or the Deluxe for $179.  I will help you set-up your launch party either via Facebook or an in home party.  You start earning commission with your very first order!  When you submit $1000 in orders in the first 30 days,  you will a $250 commission check.  PLUS you will also earn a $200 credit which you can use for product or business OR you can exchange for a VISA gift card or Disney bucks.  The best part is for every $1000 in sales in the first 4 months you will earn an additional $200 credit.   You will also be able to shop at a 40% discount on products.  Whatever your reason for joining us, I will be there to help you every step of the way.

You don’t need the extra money or this may not be the right time for you, how about hosting a girl’s night to get FREE and discounted products?  August is a crazy busy time for people – back to school shopping, vacations and the list goes on, right? I get it.  I have been the crazy momma  but I will make it quick and easy!  I will be happy to come to you within a one hour radius.  It can be at the baseball field, the pool or where ever you will be hanging out this summer – I’m 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. Lots of fun and games. Look at this NEW Sling Back Thermal available to hostesses with a $600 party!   Did I mention the average party is $600?

I’m not giving up yet because if you kept reading this post you are probably a Thirty One fan (or maybe you have a secret addiction).  So let me tell you about August’s customer special.  When you spend $35, you can pick ONE of these: a deluxe utility tote OR a bleacher blanket for $20!  Spend $70 and you can grab both of them.  You will be ready for tailgating this fall.

So which will it be?  Will you grab the enrollment kit and give see what this “pink bubble” is all about? Will you have some with the girls which earning FREE and discounted products?  OR will you just shop for some really AMAZING products?  The choice is yours…

Have questions, feel free to call/text me at 609-457-4249.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Why Thirty-One Gifts Now?

I know, you are thinking…. this is just another pitch to join a direct sales company.  Yes, it may look that way BUT have you ever thought about the difference in could make in your life.

What would you do with an extra $300 a month?  Imagine being able to pay your bills or even your mortgage payment each month with your Thirty-One income. What about extra-curricular activities for your kids, a new car for your family, or even paying for a family vacation, with CASH!  Imagine having the money you need for those “extras” you want for yourself and your family…EVERY…SINGLE…MONTH! .Can you visualize it or does it seem impossible?

I was one of those who never easy dreamed.  I lived paycheck to paycheck as a single mom.  I would do vision boards and then quickly have those dreams swallowed up in a pit of bills.  Take a minute and think about what you really want (or dream you had)…. I am inviting you dream because all of this (and more) has happened for so many Thirty-One consultants!  Me included!!!

Birthday Reflections

Another milestone….. yes, believe it or not, tomorrow is my 61st birthday!  Do I feel 61? Some days especially when the MS decides to rear its ugly head..

I’m a day early since I don’t blog on Friday’s, I figured today would be a great day for reflection and probably some tears.

I am blessed I get to wake this morning and every morning.  No matter what the day may bring, I know it will be WONDERFUL!  I’m determined to be positive and make the most of it. It may take me two hours to clear the fog and get moving but being grateful for each small step it a gift from God.

Birthdays are milestones in our lives.  As children, they are a day (or sometimes a week or even a month) where the focus is on us.  Filled with presents, parties, family, friends and of course cake and ice cream.  As the years go by, life “happens” and things change.

The past year has been filled with many ups and downs.  Receiving the “official” diagnosis of RRMS (Remitting Relapsing MS) and starting injections three times a week.  Working my Thirty One business full-time while learning the ebbs and flows of not receiving a consistent pay check.  The realization more memories are lost and struggling to find the right words some days.  The toughest part of the last year was the loss of my dad.  Through it all I hold fast to the mantra “every day is a gift from God with a blessing to be found.”

Truth be told for many years “birthdays” were just another day when low self-esteem and lack of confidence and those nasty inner gremlins made me feel like I didn’t deserve a celebration. I’m great at giving but I’m not very good at receiving.  Today, I am looking at them a little differently – have I grown up?  Don’t count on it!  My dad was all about living life to the fullest and his passing is probably one of the reasons why I stopped saying “it is just another day”.   Today is a gift from God  to be able to spend another day with family and friends.  The celebration doesn’t need to be big, it doesn’t need to have lots of presents (maybe just one or two would be nice).

As a child, one of my favorite celebrations was the annual trip to New York City to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus. This annual tradition was a treat from Edythe and Elsie. It included the circus and dinner in NY. I always felt so grown up! Both of them are now our guardians angels in heaven and the circus performed for the last time last year.

I have to admit the tears are starting to flow, tears of joy mixed with some sadness:

  • I grateful for my daughter, Belinda.  She has grown into an AMAZING woman who I am proud to call my friend.  Life was not always easy but she turned adversity into a learning lesson.  God could not have given me a greater gift then to be her mom.  We may have missed out on the ThirtyOne cruise thanks to the hurricane but I loved spending time in NC with you.
  • To my mom….thank you for always being there.  We are not just mother and daughter, but we are friends.  The miles may separate us but I know you are only a phone call away or a short drive to Mays Landing.  You are always one of my biggest cheerleaders.
  • To my dad….who is now watching over me from heaven.  It has been a rough year but through it all, I remember your encouraging words.  You taught me to embrace life, living it to the fullest every day and to chose JOY, even on a bad day so everything will be okay. I miss you daddy!
  • To my Thirty One family.  An amazing group of women who have loved and supported me in my darkest days.  My team is AWESOME and they inspire me daily.  My hostesses and customers are so much more than just “orders”, building friendships with many of them.   They all hold a special place in my heart.  It is with their help and support I am able to work my business full-time.

  • To my DS/Crafter Friends….words can express the gratitude I have for you.  This past year, you have helped in so many ways.  Sharing events, carrying my stuff when I am struggling, cheering me on and checking in on me.  Thank you for your support as I ventured into fulfilling a dream of celebrating, and encouraging other DS business owners through our networking group, Jersey Shore Direct Sellers Network.
  • Lastly, to my hubby (who probably won’t read this)…who is my ROCK!  I know I am not the easiest to live with (imagine that?) but you are always there, standing strong and supporting me.  Your support and encouragement in my Thirty One “business” gives me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone. Thank you for being one of my greatest cheerleaders.  I’m excited to spend my birthday with you this year, thank you for taking the day off.

There are many more people I could (and probably should) thank or talk about from this year.  It has been an AMAZING journey for me and I am looking forward to the blessings God has for me in this new year.  I can’t believe I am actually 61 years old – okay, so it is only a number, right?

What Lesson is Your Life Offering Now?

I want you to take a minute and think about what lessons your life is offering you right now.  The truth is when we change the way we look at situations, good and bad, we can actually learn from them.

God offers lessons everyday and it is up to us to learn from them.  If you are anything like me, you are hard headed (a typical Taurus trait) and may need to go through things multiple times before you actually learn the lesson. As a result, the same lessons are offered over and over again. Whether you are going through a frustrating or exciting time, there is something to learn which will prepare you for greater opportunities on your horizon.

Today, I want you to be intentional about looking for those lessons and finding ways to apply them to the daily challenges you face.  Here are five lessons you may have learned on your journey. If so, consider these a reminder today:

1. Nothing is permanent.

Believe it or not, change is good.  The first change I remember was moving from my childhood home to a new neighborhood at the age of 11.  It took me awhile but I adjusted.  Over the years of going to college, and changing jobs, I quickly learned to adapt to new circumstances, new people, and new surroundings. Nothing in life is permanent.  This fact should encourage you to revel in the joy your life is bringing right now.  It will help lessen your frustration when you encounter circumstances you don’t like. For some change is not easy, for others they have learned to roll with the punches.  Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a new job, or a chronic illness, there is a lesson to be learned.  If there is something or someone you love, in what ways could you embrace and enjoy them more? If it is something you don’t think you can handle, just hold on a little longer. This too shall pass.

2. You are either living on purpose or living by accident.

Too many people wander through life haphazardly, for the last few years I have been one of them.  I latched onto acquaintances, jobs, and life situations just because they crossed my path. I lived by accident.  It wasn’t my plan nor did I actually think I was.  I struggled to find my purpose.  A course called “Fit Within” is helping me to create a fulfilling life where I am purposeful in my decisions. Don’t make a decision without reflecting on what long-term impact it will have on you and the people you love. Pursue the things which empower you to express your values and talents. Choose to be around people you feel good being around—inspiring, supportive people who are moving in the same direction you are. Know your purpose and live in it every day in your work, relationships, health, finances, and spiritual life. Strive not to end up anywhere by accident—just because it was convenient.

3. Fear does not necessarily mean stop.

Does FEAR cripple you?  Do you want to run away or are you ready to roar like a lion and face it head on?  Fear is as powerful as you allow it to be. Most of us feel fear and take it as a warning to stop moving forward. Been there, done that and have more t-shirts then I can count!  We should see fear as a natural emotion which pops up every time we venture outside of our comfort zone. When you feel fear, keep moving. Step out of your comfort zone.  It will help you to grow AND get you closer to your goals. What are you afraid of right now which is keeping you from living your best life? Will you make a decision to move forward despite your fear?

4. Less is more.

Are you someone who shows their worth through money and material possessions?  Are you all about keeping up with the Jones’?  Do you play the comparison game?  The simple truth about self-empowerment is it comes from knowing nothing material will ever prove your worth. This is a lesson I need to be reminded of periodically.  Your worth comes from your identity as a child of God and the impact you make in the lives of others. Don’t worry about impressing everyone else. If you are a people pleaser, this might be a tough pill to swallow.  Focus on impressing God (or your Higher Power) by living the purpose for which He created you—serving and blessing others in the way only you can.

5. The power to change your life is in the choices you make.

SMACK!  This is perhaps the most powerful and toughest of lessons. Better choices create better circumstances. It’s not what happens to you which most impacts your life; it is how you respond to it. Your choices create your future. What kind of future are you creating with the choices you are making today? You can choose to enjoy your life or to be miserable. You can choose to be flexible or keep hitting a brick wall at work or in a relationship. You can choose to pursue your dreams or keep making excuses for why you can’t achieve them. The choice is yours.

What is the most important lesson your life is offering you right now? How will you apply this lesson in your future?

Today I challenge you to take an action in the next 48 hours which will enrich your life in a positive, meaningful way.  Share it with us.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

 

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…
