Why should you join 31?

One of the most important task at hand right now is looking for wonderful and motivated women who want to join my team. I can't express enough of the opportunities that Thirty One will and can provide. I know as I continue to climb up my success ladder, doors will continue to open up for my family and I.

Last night I was wondering if could I come up with 31 goals and reasons why I joined Thirty One.

8. The goal of having friends who are excited about Thirty One as I am.
9. The goal of building a team of women who are determine to have a successful business.
10. Receiving 25% commission on what I sale. (This lets me know that I determine my paycheck. If I make nothing in a pay period, then that mean I didn't push hard enough).
11. Working with great motivators.

20. Monthly specials! (This is something I love, because this allow all shoppers to gain a bonus within the means for any income. For example this month (December 2012), you can earn a product for only $5.00 for every $31.00 you spend! WOW!!!)
21. Great Catalogs. (Which you can access online and through a personal booklet given to you by your consultant, ME!

Gotta love sales!

I know I have been told by friends and family that ThirtyOne is expensive, which leads to what I am doing being a bit discouraging. I have questioned and asked myself over and over did I make the right decision with investing in this. But I have made up my mind that I am going to press forward and make the best of this and I know in the end my family and I will be blessed.

Loving the Products I sell...

There is nothing more rewarding than selling something that you love! I knew beforehand that I would love the products Thirty One has to offer. I became a consultant by looking for one of their organizing tote for my bow business. Most people look at the products and think it's just bags. Well not so much...

You have to think about what can you do with those bags and then you will see they are more than just bags, they can become a way of life!  For instance: if you are a mom on the go, then there are ways Thirty One can make your life easier. There are thermal tote to pack lunches...zipper pouches to pack snacks...there are cinch bags to pack kids sport uniforms in. Should I keep going...LOL!

Last week at our school the PTA held the Holiday Store. I wanted to make sure that the board members and volunteers had plenty of goodies to snack on and coffee to drink. The first morning I realized that I had too much to take and needed a easy way to transfer them to the school. Thankfully I had my organizing utility tote. I was able to pack coffee, creamers, tea bags, coffee pot, cookies, spoons and sugar. ALL IN ONE BAG!!! Using any other ordinary bag I would have not been able to do that without packing several bags. I would have probably packed the coffee pot in a bag of its own, due to the fear of breaking something. With this bag I had no worries.

Using the products that I received in the start up kit gives me the opportunity to test out the products so I can promote them to people with confidence. I don't want to offer someone something that I can not back up 100% . I am a proud customer and consultant of Thirty One.

Don't forget about this month special...Every $31.00 you spend you can select one of the listed items in the monthly special photo for only $5.00. AN AWESOME DEAL!!! This sale ends December 31st.

My first check...

I always knew that my first check wouldn't be something spectacular. But I knew it was going to be a accomplishment that makes me feel like what I am doing is a reality. With anything you do in life you have to make sure you put in your 100% to make sure the end result is satisfying.

So on Monday, I got my first check! YAY!!!! With my first check...I now have to drive to make sure my next one is more than the last! Each month I want to make sure I am increasing the opportunity to support my family. To sell Thirty One was a decision I made so I can help my husband provide thing for our sons financially. We have two sons who are involved in numerous activities and I don't want to them to miss out due to lack of finances. So if I can contribute to that, then I am more than happy. Seeing the joy on their faces when they do things they enjoy is a great blessing a mother can ask for.

With this first check I am able to contribute to my cell phone bill! YES! Next month I want to be able to buy 2 weeks of groceries. And in February I want to be able to pay my final car note. I know if I set a goal for myself I will have the motivation I need to make it happen. I want all my goals to be a reality not a dream.

I want to encourage other women to take advantage of this great opportunity to provide for their family. This can be done on your own time. So if you work, then you can do this in your spare time. If you are a stay at home mom, you can do this when you are not busy with the million and one things you do with your children. Go to my site Shel's Thirty One Site and see what opportunities are available for you. I am here to provide any information and answer any questions!

Advertising on Wheels...

One of the most important things that I have learned that is going to make my business successful is marketing and determination. I am finding that when I approach people they are a little hesitate about Thirty One. So now it's my job to make sure they know exactly what my business is all about.

Thirty One provides helpful accessories for women and men (yes I said men too) to be a little more productive and organized in their daily lives. When I got my pink box I was thrilled about all the goodies that was in-stored for me. But I wasn't expecting my husband to be excited as much as I was as well. He immediately grab the cinch tote and claimed it as his own. He has went through the catalog and pointed out some things that would be great for his job and personal use as well. So this let me know that I can't be shy to approach men about what I have as well.

One of my marketing strategies for my business was to start this blog! I know that if I share my journey, that not only will consultants who are experiences the same things as I am can get something uplifting. But I am also gaining exposure to people who don't know what Thirty One is and may gain some potential team members.

Another marketing tool that I am using is the decal sign on my car. I knew this was something I had to do. I see other direct home businesses advertising this way and I know there have been plenty of times when I seen something and wrote it down so I can later check it out. I went under the Thirty One tools and placed an order for my sign and on Friday it arrived! I was so excited that I knew I had to make sure my SUV was cleaned and ready to go. (Can't advertise my business in a dirty car!)

So now that my car is ready to go, I have the eagerness to drive everywhere so I can be seen. Watch out world here I come, Shel and Thirty One is on the run!

The beginning...

Have you ever have an opportunity that comes knocking on your door...
But then you begin to wonder should I or should I not? Well that is kind of the story I have to tell with my Thirty One experience. 

I was at church and I notice that my Sunday school teacher had this awesome bag. Since I am a crafter I knew the bag she had would be perfect for me to carry my bows and accessories around. Well she moved away and I didn't have a way to contact her about the bag she had, but I did notice the symbol on the front which was "Thirty One". A few months later I decided to Google this and see what I come up with. To my surprise I found the bag and the company. 

My only intentions was to get the bag and be on my way. However as I search for a consultant, there wasn't anyone who was in my area. So I selected the wonderful lady, who would later change my life. She called me and she didn't want my order, she wanted to get to know me! So as we talked she came to the conclusion that this would be a perfect opportunity for me. 

I was a little hesitate at first and I had to talk it over with my husband. I just felt so overwhelmed that instead of me buying this wonderful bag, I was given the opportunity to have my own business and have access not only to the bag I wanted but to so much more. 

Life took it's toll and things came up and push me further from getting started. But one day I said enough is enough I am starting this today! So on November 8, 2012 I became a independent consultant to Thirty One. YAY! I felt so accomplished and knew I was making a great decision for my family. And nothing can beat the feeling when that pink box arrived at my door! Even a greater feeling when I seen all the goodies that was inside the box. Then I knew this was it, I have took the first step.
