The Grass is Greener on My Side of the Fence

When I think of the blessings in my life, I have a long list... a very long, amazing list.

My husband, our sons, my parents, my brothers, sister-in-laws and all the nieces and nephews, my precious friends, a warm home, a car that runs, my health, and the list
goes on!  Yep, I'm pretty blessed! 

And if all of that isn't enough, I have something else in my life that has turned out to be an incredible blessing. It started out as something for "me," something I could call my own.  I don't mean for that to sound selfish, I was just in a place where I kinda needed to find myself again.  I can't really explain it (well I could, but it's way too long to share in a blog!), but at the end of the day what happened is that the Lord opened some doors and showed me Thirty One Gifts.

Initially, I sort of "dabbled" at being a Consultant.  And then I realized, "Hey, I'm really good at this!"  It used all of my strengths:

  • I love people.  
  • I love the product.  
  • I love organization. 
  • I love being successful, and
  • I love helping other people be successful!  

Within just a few months of really deciding that I was going to turn Thirty One Gifts into my own personal income generating business THIS happened to me! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Over the past 2 years, I have been working, successfully building a business on my own terms, in the time that I want to give to it each month.  I have been honored to make new friends, all over the country. These ladies are women just like me.  They have gifts, talents, strengths, and a desire to either support their family income or they are the primary income for their families.  They have all been such an encouragement to my soul! I love getting to see them at National Conference, it's something we all look forward to every year. (I guess they are a part of my blessings as well!)

But that's not where this story ends. Thirty One Gifts started 10 years ago, this year, and it's grown by leaps and bounds! I know the Lord has blessed this company because our founder and owner, Cindy Monroe, seeks God, loves God, and puts Him first. She lives what she teaches, and The Lord has blessed her, and by blessing her, everyone around her has been blessed.

Let me also add this . . . which is what made me start thinking about writing this blog today, the Top 100 List of Best Direct Sales Companies for 2012 came out this week and Thirty One is #18, with $718,000,000 in sales!

Now that's some exciting news!!

I am a Thirty One Gifts Independent Director because it allows me to be a successful small business owner.  It allows me to support my husband and family, and it allows me to help other people do the same! 

I would love to help you achieve those things as well!  Give me a call, and I will give you all the secret info, like how many hours I actually work and how much money I actually make! I'm talking full disclosure here people!  Want more info on being part of this amazing journey?  Give me a call or shoot me an email!

I'd love to hear your blessing list too!  Leave me a comment and tell me how God is blessing you today!

From my side of the fence, I'm thinking the grass is looking pretty green right where I'm standing.
