FC: A Thirty-One Story | "For I know the plans I have for you." declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 | Believe
2: The name comes from Proverbs 31 in the Bible. The passage describes the virtuous woman. She is a friend, a wife, a mother, a neighbor, a home keeper, a teacher, a diligent and hard worker...she is a good woman. Thirty-One is a party plan direct selling company that offers a wide variety of purses, totes, bags and accessories to help organize your life. Each season we develop new products built on the idea that they must be functional, fashionable and of course they should always make great gifts! And many of our products can also be personalized with embroidery, printing, or laser etching. But Thirty-One is so much more than a company. We are people who believe in celebrating, encouraging and rewarding others for who they are. Through God’s strength and blessing, we have built a family of individuals who feel that women deserve to treat themselves and those around them to something special. Thirty-One has a vision to give their Consultants the tools to achieve financial freedom and to make the path to that freedom simple, easy, fun and full of rewarding experiences. We believe in being engaged with integrity in our work, our communities, our families and our mission. | Celebrate - Encourage - Reward | Thirty-One
3: A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds...the woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in fear of God, Reward her for all she has done. Proverbs 31:10,30-31
4: In March of 2011, I got my first glimpse of a Thirty-One catalog. I fell in love with the products immediately and quickly made out my wish list. I soon realized that my wish list did not fit within my family's budget. I kept my wish list in the back of my mind as life kept going at full pace. A couple of months later I ran across the company once again in what I call a “God-guided Google” when I searched for “Christian at-home businesses”. My goal was that I could help fill the gap in our budget due to my husband’s recent layoff. I’d been thinking of taking on a job since I had recently left teaching when we made the move to Minnesota. But, I’d tried direct sales before and had always failed at it. After prayer and talking it over with my husband, I decided to give it a go. At the very least, I’d be my own best customer and earn commission on my personal wish list. I have always hated sales, but I love Thirty-One. I love the products, the company and the chance to get out and meet new people having fun along the way. In my first 8 months with the company, I viewed it as a fun hobby. I was having a blast and getting great products to boot! | My Thirty-One Story
5: Then, in February of 2012, I decided to get serious about it. I really didn’t want to go back to having a homeroom class. I much preferred being my kids’ homeroom mom! That same year in June, I promoted to Senior Consultant. The following month of July, I became a Director! I went to my first Thirty-One conference in August of 2012. I really connected with Cindy and Scott’s heart for women. What a blessing to know that the owners are more for people than the “bottom line!” It was at conference that I realized that with some hard work and dedication, I could bring in more income with Thirty-One that what I was making at my job as a teacher! Now, I am working to attain financial freedom by becoming debt free! | No matter what your "why"... Thirty-One has a place for you! | I’m thrilled to be able to offer this amazing opportunity to others. Whether you want just a little extra money to help with bills or savings, or whether you are looking for the freedom to work from home no matter what your “why” is, Thirty-One has a place for you!

7: New Van!! | So she can grow up believing in herself!!
8: I never imaged what a bond I would develop with my fellow consultants. From day one, I was welcomed with open arms and treated like family by those on my team, other consultants in the area and by our home office. We help each other rather than competing against each other. We meet regularly for support, training and fellowship. We have times of prayer and devotion. And we also get together for fun events like the Heart Walk for the American Heart Association. Those on my team and in my area have become some of my closest friends. I’m so happy to be a party of the family we call Thirty-One. | The Unexpected Sisterhood | G-Crew
9: 16,000 consultants gathered in Atlanta for celebrating, training and the fall catalog reveal! Many came as strangers, but we all left as sisters. Join us as we return to Atlanta to celebrate 31’s 10th anniversary in the city where Cindy purchased the items for our very first catalog. Conference is a time for invaluable training, team building, fellowship, and of course, seeing the new fall product line! | Week of July 22, 2013
