February 2013: My Journey with Thirty-One!

19 Feb

Ladies, it’s been a while since my last post. I’m just so excited about my Thirty-One business and had to share some of what I’ve been up to lately.

Here’s a snapshot of my life this month as an independent director with Thirty-One Gifts:

Feb. 1-3: Attended my first SHE Leadership Retreat. The retreat was offered by two Senior Executive Directors and held in Orlando. The weekend was full of amazing training and fellowship. They surprised us by having a professional photographer there and we were each able to get a professional headshot taken as their gift to us. So nice!! I had so much fun meeting and learning from leaders all across the United States (pictured below). That’s me on the top row, second from right.


Feb. 6: Registered for my first National Conference. Thirty-One will celebrate its 10th Anniversary in July in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. This will be my first National Conference ever and the first time I’m leading a team (Team Creating Possibilities)! I’m so excited. The first year I joined Thirty-One (May 2010), I didn’t attend since NC was in July and I was still getting my feet wet as a consultant. The following year, I earned a free ticket to National Conference but I was newly pregnant and wasn’t sure about traveling to Ohio. {I have always regretted not going!!} Then last year, I had just returned to work after a nearly six months maternity leave and was still nursing my baby… so I wasn’t able to go yet again. This year… NO EXCUSES! Plus, I think I may get to walk across the stage and be recognized for promoting to director in June 2012.

Feb. 7-11: Went on my first Leadership Incentive Cruise to the Bahamas. I earned this cruise from my sponsor last year when I promoted to director. There were 12 of us on the cruise… each of us earned it. This was an incredible trip. I have never traveled so well with 11 other women. Being a Thirty-One Consultant is truly a sisterhood and we bonded, creating new friendships. I don’t have a sister and it was so nice to get to know these women. We had so much fun together that we’re already planning an annual trip for our teams to earn when promoting to director. Thank goodness we weren’t on that stranded cruise!! It would have been a completely different trip. Thankful we had running water and power — and a great time!

Feb. 17: Shared Thirty-One at the Perfect Wedding Guide Bride Expo. Had so much fun sharing Thirty-One with the brides-to-be at the expo. I was amazed at how many had never heard of Thirty-One. I loved sharing the idea of hosting a party several months before their “Big Day” so they can use their hostess credits to purchase their bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts. Many had never thought of this and were excited at the possibility of getting their bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts for free. I met a few brides who were also interested in becoming consultants themselves. Luckily for them, Thirty-One is currently offering an “O.J” (or Opportunity to Join) incentive. I would be so excited if they were to join my Team Creating Possibilities and received the $99 rebate. Essentially, all they would need to do is enroll as a consultant before April 1st, submit their first $1,000 in sales within their first 30 days (that’s two average parties… very doable), and they would receive their initial $99 investment back as a rebate, plus $250 in commission… that’s money they could put toward planning their own wedding!


Feb. 18: Celebrated & Connected with consultants in our area. I woke up with an earache and wasn’t sure if I would make it to our meeting. Thankfully I was feeling better because I was co-hosting a Celebrate and Connect meeting in the evening with another director in our area. We watched an amazing video from our founder Cindy Monroe about our Thirty-One Gives Foundation. The foundation is celebrating its first birthday this month. The video introduced us to Thirty-One’s newest national mission partner Girl Talk, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building self-esteem in middle school girls through its mentoring program. I’m so excited about this partnership. We also led special training and received free products (bullet points below). Just another perk of being a consultant and director with Thirty-One.

This is what I received as a director. I’ll have to post a photo later!

• Easy Breezy Tote in Island Damask (March Special)
• Soft Wallet in Island Damask
• Zipper Pouch in Lotsa Dots
• Party Cards
• Pro Duffle in Pink Lotsa Dots (NEW product — April Special)

Thirty-One always sets us up for success!! Well, that’s it for now… I hope to post more soon! xo
