A lot of people are uncomfortable with the idea of selling something. You don’t want to ask people for things. You don’t want to hear “no”. I get it. I feel the same way. However, I love selling Thirty-One. And I love encouraging people to see beyond the sales part of it. 1- I love… Continue reading Is selling hard?
Working from home is great but has its challenges. In my case, I love selling Thirty-One so I do work instead of my chores, laundry etc! Seriously, the first two months I started my house was a disaster because I just wanted to do Thirty-One and nothing else!! I love the extra income Thirty-One gives me.… Continue reading Tips for working from home

The consultant you work under is called your “upline” (and you are their “downline”.) They are a… Continue reading How to join Thirty-One
OK Facebook is a power house for marketing and communications. Embrace it! It’s a bit confusing to set up different pages (at least I thought so initially). This is what I did. I highly suggest this order!! Went to my personal page and on the bottom navigation bar do “create page”. I created a local business… Continue reading Facebook 101 for Thirty one
It is easier to market your online store and for people to remember it when you have a catchy URL. The home office sets up your personal website. Mine is http://www.thirtyone.com/christinadowell.

You… Continue reading Buy a URL for your Thirty-One business

When I first joined Thirty-one I was overwhelmed with all the information and advice available online. Its great to have so many resources but I didn’t know where to start.
I wanted to help you navigate your way through it all!
First up! Enroll with Thirty-One and get your enrollment kit. Keep the big pink box it comes in. It’s helpful for vendor events!
Second, ask a few good friends or family members to host a party for you. Not an online only party. You need to be in front of people! It’s great practice and I promise it gets easier the more you do it! Book several parties you first month. It gives you momentum and it’s so exciting to have a full calendar!
P.S. even if you plan on just being a personal use consultant, still have your parties in the beginning. It’s the best way to learn about Thirty-One’s product line.
