Awesome Mom Jobs!
I'm starting a new series spotlighting moms and the many ways they work inside and outside of the home to make life more wonderful for their family!
This week we are visiting Lindy who recently became a Thirty-one consultant! Check out her awesome job and how she got it and how you can be blessed by it too!
What got you interested in Thirty-One?
About a year ago, my best friend’s Organizing Utility Tote caught my eye. I thought it was super cute and just had to know where she got it. I hosted a party to earn one for free and was really impressed by the product line and how much the consultant enjoyed her job. Once I transitioned to staying home full-time with our 3 little ones (Lucas, 6; Logan, 3; and Emily, 1), I looked for an opportunity to make a little money for fun ‘extras,’ like date nights and gymnastics classes. After spending a few weeks talking about it with my husband and praying about this opportunity, I decided to start my own business as a Thirty-One Independent Consultant.
How are you enjoying being a Thirty-One consultant?
Working with Thirty-One has totally exceeded my expectations! The company offers so much help in getting started and constantly assures me that I’m in business for myself, but not by myself. The Thirty-One Consultants I’ve met are always happy to share ideas and celebrate successes. We even have an online book club!
When I got started, I handed my business over to the Lord and asked Him to mold it into whatever He wants it to be. He has opened up so many opportunities to grow my business and led me to so many fun and encouraging women.
What’s your favorite product?
We’re in our inaugural year of homeschooling and my Fold N’ File has kept us really organized as we go through our day. It holds a folder for each subject with the teacher’s guide and student work. The outside pockets are perfect for keeping flashcards and math manipulative in easy reach. Our ‘school room’ is our kitchen counter, so space-saving solutions are always my favorite! We store our pencils, crayons, and scissors in a Little’s Carry-All, so after-school clean-up is a breeze.
What are the company’s perks?
One huge perk is getting paid to party! I love getting out of the house about one night a week to celebrate my hostess, connect with her guests, and share the values of this awesome company. Thirty-One Gifts was founded 10 years ago to celebrate, reward, and encourage modern Proverbs 31 women. As the Bible states, these women work with eager hands, provide food for their families, set about their work vigorously, open their arms to the poor and extend their hands to the needy. Thirty-One Gifts provides me with a natural opportunity to share Biblical truths at each party and I count that amongst the biggest perks.
In addition, Thirty-One loves to bless the work of their consultants with free products, recognition, and free vacations! It’s so fun to open the front door and find a reward on my doorstep.
Would you recommend this job to a sahm?
Absolutely! At first, I wondered how I’d juggle family, home, and Thirty-One, but it’s been a great match for my family. Thirty-One gives me the flexibility to work around our schedule. There’s never any pressure to fill my calendar with parties – I’m able to do what works for us.
Thirty-One is a great opportunity for women interested in working from home. You can even try it out while working your current job to see if Thirty-One is a good fit. It’s only $99 to get started and the starter kit is yours to keep no matter what you decide!
Have you been happy with the income you are generating?
Thirty-One has provided ‘breathing room’ in the budget for Christmas shopping and hobbies. It’s been so great to treat ourselves to dinner out without feeling guilty about it. The extra income has really been a blessing to my family.
