Halfway Through Summer

12 weeks of summer FB

Did I get your attention?  Yes, I said halfway through summer.  Well, at least in our Thirty One pink bubble, we are at the halfway point of summer.  That means exciting things for you – as a customer, a hostess or even finding some extra money.


As a hostess, you can pick one of these AWESOME sets.  Which one fits your style?

HO 6:15 HO 6:22 HO 6:29

I know you are saying, I don’t have time to host a party.  Guess what?  We can set up at your office during lunch or after hours.  We can take it to the park during one of the kids games.  How about grabbing coffee and dessert OUT with a few girl friends?  How about a catalog party?  I will provide you with catalogs and a few products to show off – you collect $200 in orders (which is only about 6 orders) and YOU get FREE product.  Have a lot of friends on Facebook?  How about a Facebook party?  Just 30 minutes is all it takes.  There is a party style to fit even the busiest schedule.

Okay, so you really just want to shop.  Here are some simple solutions and gift ideas for your family and friends.   I

How about the SURPRISE Customer specials?

Customers are LOVING these.  What I do know is that they have been worth every penny in the previous weeks.  They have ranged from mini diamond districts to wallets to organizing products.  Remember those grab bags as a kid?  Now, we have the grown up version just for YOU.

Want to make some extra money this summer?

There are so many reasons to be a consultant during this time….Yes, consultants will also receive a REWARD! So for $99 you will get:

enrollment kit

Then you begin hosting parties and every 30 days, you will have the chance to pick one of these sets when you have $600 in sales:

Did I mention the CASH that will go into YOUR pocket?  For a $600 party which is average, you will get a check for $150.  That would help with expenses on vacation or to put aside for school clothes shopping, right?


So, there are THREE opportunities with Thirty One this summer:

3 options

Which opportunity is for you? Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Fall Theme Parties


The Fall catalog season has  started and how do I know?  Check out Facebook or other social media sites for the continuous postings about new products, specials and incentives for joining XYZ company.  The basic ingredient for success in all direct sales companies is “Book, Sell, Recruit”.  We are all usually stronger in one area than another so does that mean we won’t be successful? No, it just means that we have to work a little harder in the areas where we are weak.  Admit that we need help and be willing to EMBRACE it when it is offered (even if it is by a sandpaper person).

Some of my hostesses have found that “theme parties” are a lot of fun while at the same time allowing them to keep food offerings simple.  As a consultant, it makes things easy for me because I can focus my brief presentation on the items that coincide with the theme.  Here are some of the favorites:
