Thirty-One Gifts is a Faith-based Direct Sales Company that specializes in personalized products and gifts! It was founded in 2003 by Cindy Monroe as a way to celebrate, encourage and reward independent working women! Why the name Thirty-One Gifts? It’s based on Proverbs 31, the virtuous woman.
In the last fiscal year alone (2011-2012), the company experienced an amazing 323% growth, despite the economic downturn, making them one of the fastest growing Direct Sales Companies in the industry. Thirty-One is a member of the Direct Sales Association and the Direct Selling Women’s Association. The home office is located in Columbus, Ohio. In the September 2010 issue, Lauri Dodd of Direct Selling News says, “Thirty-One Gifts is turning heads for their ability to rack up incredible growth numbers, while maintaining a close-knit family feel.” Read the full article here.
Thirty-One is shared through online parties, catalog parties, home parties, or a combination thereof. Hostesses earn free and half-priced items among other discounts. Don’t have time for a party? You also have the option of placing a retail order online.
I’m a mom to a beautiful daughter, a wife to an amazing husband, and a daughter, sister and friend. By day, I work for a university. While marketing and communications is my background, I never imagined I would get into Direct Selling… but Thirty-One peaked my interest. I was introduced to their amazing products in late 2009 by a high school friend, who has since promoted to the top 1% in the company (Senior Executive Director). I attended a party, purchased a few things, and because of the positive experience and quality of their products, I’m now an independent Thirty-One Gifts Director (joined in May 2010). I love everything I sell… the products are fun and the company stands behind their products with a 90-day return policy. I also enjoy meeting new people and helping them coordinate and pick out their Thirty-One products. I now have a small team and enjoy encouraging them and providing marketing advice.
I’m paying it forward by donating a portion of my sales to charity.
