Seven years ago when I started my journey with Thirty-One, I really just wanted to use the extra income to be able to pay for dinner at Chick-Fil-A once a month and pay for my daughter’s gymnastics classes at the local parks and rec. We lived paycheck to paycheck and made *To The Penny* what we needed for me to be able to stay home with our then 18 month old. Thirty-One quickly became our “fun money” account and allowed us the opportunity to not only have a family night out once in a while, but DATE NIGHTS, family vacations, additional sports and house renovations!
We knew early on that the opportunity with Thirty-One was endless and set our goals on building our dream home closer to Washington, DC where my husband works. At the time, he was commuting 2.5 hours via train each way from Martinsburg, WV. He would leave the house early in the morning before any of us woke up and would get home at 7:00 at night, leaving him just one hour to spend with his now two children before they went to bed. Moving had quickly become my WHY for working my business. The same month that I celebrated my 4 year anniversary with Thirty-One, we achieved that goal, closed on our dream home and my husband’s commute was instantly cut almost in half!
Years back when I put my goal to move on paper, I gave it a deadline and it said, “before Kindergarten.” September 2nd, 2014 was our daughter’s first day of Kindergarten. While this is already an incredible milestone in so many ways, the pictures we took mean more to me than anyone will ever know. She took pictures standing on the porch of the new house that my business helped to build and attended her first day of kindergarten in our new community. The best part of it all was asking her at the end of the day what her favorite part of Kindergarten was. Her response… “Getting to have breakfast with Daddy before school.”
FULL. CIRCLE. MOMENT.
If you watch what I do and discover that you’d like more information on how to start your own business with Thirty-One I will be happy to help you. Thirty-One is the most incredible job I’ve ever had and it is SO much more than purses.
