As I lay on my bed soaking up my few minutes of alone time I will get for the day, I keep thinking about the question "Why?"
I recently, within the last week, signed up to be an Independent Consultant with Thirty-One Gifts. I own my own business and for the first time in all of my direct selling experience I am super excited and want to truly succeed with this company.
One of the things that I found that I have been constantly asked in the last week is, "Why?"
Why did I decide to get into direct selling and own my own business and why did I choose Thirty-One Gifts?
Truth time folks:
I was terrified to get back into direct selling because of all the failed experiences I had in the past. But since last September my family has accrued alot of medical debt because of a surgery, an emergency room visit, biannual check ups for my youngest's one kidney (which is functioning at 100%), occupational therapy and a precautionary ultrasound. Needless to say, we scrap the bottom of the barrel every month because of all this extra debt and only having one full-time income. We needed another source of income and I still want to stay home with my sons until they are both in school full time.
So my options were to get a work from home job that required me to sit in front of my laptop for hours a day, ignoring my kids so I could meet deadlines, etc... or get back into direct selling. I choose to take a leap of faith and get back into direct selling.
I went to work researching companies and Thirty-One Gifts had everything I wanted! I love the products! I love the message of the company, "To empower women". I love their Thirty-One Gives Foundation and all of the work.
It was a no brainer for me and after discussing it with my husband, I signed up.
I now own my own Thirty-One Gifts business and am ready to work my butt of to make it a success for me and my family!
I can now make money to help pay down our debts and be debt free!
I can stay home with my boys and work on my time!
I am my own boss!
I have a great team of other women supporting me!
And I get to get out of the house and party with fabulous women during hosted parties!
Now that sounds fabulous to me!
I am so excited to use and share the wonderful products with all of my family and friends! The chance to help make their days a little simpler with great organizational tools is just so fulfilling for me. The fact that I can help them in this way is such a blessing!
So there you have it. This is my "Why"!
And I can't wait to work hard and make my business success a reality!
