What has surprised you about being a Thirty-One Consultant?
How has Thirty-One helped you make a difference for others?
I started Thirty-One on a whim. I was scared to death when I started and thought it would be something I’d do just to put money back into savings; but after 16 years of not feeling fulfilled by teaching, Thirty-One gave me the opportunity to retire. I never expected to love it and run with it, but now I can’t imagine doing anything else! Thirty-One has given me a purpose and passion I never had. I’m truly happy with what I do, and I’m not mentally and physically exhausted at the end of the work day. We are truly a sisterhood, built on faith, with a common goal of empowering one another, and I’m so thankful I took that leap of faith and joined.”
Having the flexibility to make my own schedule has become so precious to me. I’m able to help care for my elderly mother and mother-in-law by taking them to their appointments and doing their grocery shopping for them, and I’m also able to take time to visit my three sons. Two are in college, and I love being able to say, ‘Hey, how about tomorrow I come out and take you to lunch.’ As the years have passed, my belief and confidence in my abilities has grown tremendously. I think there is a misconception that direct sales is just a ‘side hobby’ and that you can’t make ‘real money’ doing this. I am living proof that you can be successful when you have a goal and are willing to put forth the effort to make that goal a reality.”
What possibilities has Thirty-One opened up for your family? The very first spring of being a Consultant, I was able to purchase a ski boat for my family to enjoy. This was the eye-opening time when we began to see the real possibilities of this business. Three years later when my youngest was born, I was able to stay home fulltime and work my Thirty-One business. Since that time, we’ve been able to build our dream house. Thirty-One has given my family choices that I never would have imagined. I can work from home and be available for school events or parties that I would have previously had to miss. We recently visited Disney World® because of the Wishes Rewards I was able to earn through Thirty-One, and it was a dream come true for my kids!”
How has Thirty-One changed your life? I believe in the endless possibilities, heart and determination of this amazing company. Now, I am able to say ‘yes’ to so many more things in life for my four daughters. The mini vacations, camping trips and shopping adventures we’re able to do together as a family and the memories they create are what it’s all about. I love the flexibility that Thirty-One gives me to be able to stay home with my children and not have to miss out on their many milestones in life. Thirty-One has given me the freedom to work from home or on the go, or even while in the hospital after delivering my two younger daughters. It’s nice to have a job where I feel like I’m going to a ‘party’ every time I leave the house!”
