Clear the Clutter

Want to Train Your Brain?


A few years ago, I took a training with the AWESOME Dana Wilde called “Train Your Brain“. I have to admit, I thought it was a little crazy.  I wasn’t in a good place – not ready to clear the clutter from my brain and move forward.  I was stuck!

I have come a LONG way baby!  It took work, personal growth lead to the desire to move my business to the next level.  Tired of being paycheck (or commission check) to paycheck, it was time to kick things up a notch.  It was time to stop playing small.  The funny thing is that when I started working on my business, I saw some changes in my personal growth as well.

I listened to a great interview between Desiree Wolfe and Dana Wilde that broke the “train your brain” concept down into very simple terms.  It can be applied to all aspects of your life, so here are the 4 steps to training your brain:

  1. Be aware of ALL of your thoughts particularly the negative ones. Imagine you decide to buy a new car – say a red one.  Maybe you picked that color because it is your favorite or maybe you picked it because you don’t see many red cars.  BAM!  What happens, once you start focusing on red cars, they are everywhere.  The same thing happens with your thoughts.  Yes, it is the Law of Attraction. Focus on the negative, get negative.  Focus on the positive and good things happen.
  2. Decide that you are ready to make a change.  When you are sick and tired of being sick and tired… or when you are tired of being stuck – you will make the conscious decision to change your thinking.  This is HUGE step but a very important one.  
  3. Talk about the current situation – reframing it.  Maybe you aren’t ready to jump from being stuck to being “I am a ROCKSTAR” or “I am AWESOME”, I know that I’m not.  Take baby steps.  Maybe you just need to trust the system that you are using.  Maybe you just have to trust that you will attract the people (or object) that you want.  Instead of saying “I hope that I will XXXX (fill in the blank)” try dropping the limiting belief of “I hope”.  Be certain that you will do XXX (fill in the blank).  
  4. Feel good!  I know you are probably wondering… if I am in a funk or stuck – how am I going to feel good, right?  Ask yourself this question “What’s going right?”.  Maybe you are just having a good hair day.  Maybe you didn’t hit the snooze alarm.  Whatever it is, big or small -CELEBRATE it.  On days I struggle, I write them down in my planner so I can see them.  Set the alarm on your phone to ask you a few times during the day “what’s going right?”.  You will be on your way to training your brain!

The concept of “train your brain” is not all fluff, it is based on scientific evidence that it does work.  If inspirational quotes haven’t kicked you out of the funk, why not give this a try.

March Madness


No, I am not talking about basketball although that will be the first thing that most people think of when they see these words.

In case you haven’t seen or heard….Thirty One has their own version of March Madness.  I LOVE a company that not only CELEBRATES and ENCOURAGES and REWARDS their consultants but also REWARD our hostess.  How, you are asking?  Thirty One already has a generous hostess rewards program, right?

Through the entire month of March the half price Hostess Benefit is now FREE!  Yes, you heard me.  Anything in the catalog is FREE.  So here is an example of what you could get this month.


Now, the special for the first half of March is PURSES


So, if you were to have a $200 party, you could get the Fashion Editor ($118 value) for $31, then you could add the Diamond District ($148 value) for FREE,  plus you could get a lunch break thermal for FREE ($25 value) and top it off with an optional hostess exclusive backpack ($85 value) for $35.  So let’s do the math… that is $376 worth of product for a mere $66.

Did you know that 6 orders of $35 will give you a $200 party?  So, your friends receive ANY purse at 1/2 price when they spend $35 and you get $376 worth of product for $66.

WAIT there is more….. The monthly special changes on March 16th with the introduction of the JK by Thirty One Collection. So, if you aren’t interested in the Fashion Editor or the Canvas Crew Tote, how about organizing?


So, if you were to have a $200 party, you could get the Organizing Collection ($135 value) for $30, then you could add the Diamond District ($148 value) for FREE, plus you could get a lunch break thermal for FREE ($25 value) and top it off with an optional hostess exclusive backpack ($85 value) for $35. So NOW that is $393 worth of product for a mere $65.

The difference now is that YOUR guests will receive their choice three of the Oh Snap Pocket or the Oh Snap Bins for $5 each with a $35 purchase.

So what are you waiting for?  Don’t miss out on this deal.  It can be a Home Party (the most fun) or a catalog party or an online party or even a Facebook party.  You can live in New Jersey or California.  Okay, so I won’t be doing any home parties in California since I am in NJ but you can still do a catalog party.  We ship anywhere in the US and to APO/FPO around the world.
