Thirty One Gifts

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

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!!!

If anyone ever has any questions about Thirty-One Gifts, I am more than happy to answer them for you!  Please feel free to email me at my Thirty-One Gifts account karen_31gifts@yahoo.com.
