I am a wife and a mother. I stay at home with my little boy during the week. But, I am also a bag lady!
I have loved Thirty-One for a while now, but it’s not always been in my budget to be able to afford what I wanted to purchase. In Spring of 2017, I decided to host my own party to try and get the Sling-Back Bag for free. I really wanted to use it as a diaper bag on the go, but I didn’t want to spend the money on it. I had a friend who was a consultant, so I reached out to her about having a party. My party went great! I was able to earn over $200 in free product (it was double hostess credits that month!) and 2 half off items. I was able to get the Sling-Back bag I desperately wanted and more!
Flash forward then to about a year later in March 2018. I had been eyeing up a few new items that Thirty-One had released and I really wanted to be able to get everything I wanted on my wish list at a discount. I thought, if my friend can do this, so can I! I really didn’t have many expectations of what joining Thirty-One could do for me, other than allow me to afford all the products I wanted. Then around August of that year, we lost childcare for our son and we decided that it would be best for us if I stayed home with him. I have been using Thirty-One to make up the difference since then! It was such a blessing to just be able to put more into Thirty-One and not have to worry about finding another solution.
Since joining, I’ve gotten to know a group of wonderful women, I’ve gotten to catch up with acquaintances I haven’t talked to in a while, I’ve been been able to earn a little extra money each month, and I’ve gained confidence in myself and what I can achieve when I put my mind to something. I started for the bags, but quickly realized that Thirty-One is more than that. Thirty-One has been a true blessing for me in this season of life. I love being able to spend the days at home with my son while he is still little, but still having something for me.
In the future I hope to grow my team. My favorite part of Thirty-One is the sisterhood and sense of community it creates. You instantly bond with these woman, as you support each other and build each other up. This is something I greatly needed. As a stay at home mom it’s so easy to become isolated and feel lonely. I want to help other women be able to find this sense of belonging and purpose too!
