I have been having a lot of fun lately trying to develop my new Thirty-One Gifts Business. It certainly has been keeping me busy but I wouldn't have it any other way. Being busy in the home direct sales business is a good thing!! One would think that I don't have enough time as it is to taking on anything new, however, I am trying to build a customer base now before Baby #2 arrives!!! Thank goodness I have such a supportive husband who wants me to do well and to succeed!!!! After all, he does benefit from my success too!! And, this will be a way to keep some of the financial burden off of him once the second baby comes.
I wish I had taken a few pictures of me in action at my parties, however, I will entice you with all of the beautiful products instead. Perhaps once I get into a groove, I will actually remember to take pictures and videos!!
My business had a bit of a slow start in the beginning. It seems like as soon as I received my pretty pink box filled with my start-up kit and business supplies, the morning sickness set in.
Just the sight of my pretty pink box gave me anxiety which was so frustrating. I had so many big plans and was so excited when I signed up!!! I wanted to really hit the ground running with it, however, realized that my body was just not cooperating with me and decided to hold off on scheduling any parties until I felt better and that I had the energy to give it my all.
I had my first official party at the end of August. My co-worker and friend, Rene', was gracious enough to allow me into her home and introduce Thirty-One Gifts to her friends and family. I was so nervous and prayed that I wouldn't be plagued too much by the pregnancy sickies and exhaustion. Thankfully, the party fell on one of my good days and actually felt energized going into it. I was also extremely nervous!!!!! I am not one of those people that feels comfortable doing a presentation in front of people, whether it's friends or strangers, I am a nervous wreck!! In college, I saved the mandatory Presentation 101 class for my senior year since I hated it that much!! The party ended up being a huge success and I actually felt this amazing high driving home knowing I had survived my first party. It could only get easier from there!!!
Isn't this Hanging Wall Organizer adorable? This is the first product I bought with my very first commission check. I had so many questions at my first party about it, I just had to order it!!
In September, I had four parties scheduled. Thirty-One Gifts had offered hostesses in the month of September DOUBLE the bonus rewards and I was a busy girl because of it!!! I have also signed up my first recruit this month too! My little team is growing and I can't wait to see to where Thirty-One takes me!!!
