Today I’m thankful for Thirty One. I know that sounds silly, but I really am. I started selling it because I just wanted one of each of the bags and I thought the cheapest way to get one of everything was to sell them. But now it’s so much more than that. I’m making extra money for my family, I get out of the house by myself (gasp!) for a couple hours, and I’m getting mostly-free bags. Score. When I first thought about selling Thirty One, I thought it was a bad idea. My personality does not lend itself well to sales. Let’s not talk about the White Barn Candle Company fiasco while in college, but the lesson learned was I shouldn’t try retail again. Ever. But I really don’t sell things now so much as show people what I like and then they pick out stuff they like. And it just works. And with our extra, we’re able to do more for others. It’s a win-win.
