Chelsea's Dream Team
Weekly Update 10/13/2015
Oh the Possibilities!
(Sorry it's long but I hope worth it!)
Hi Dream Team! This photo came across my newsfeed on Facebook this week and it got me thinking. What keeps you working towards your goals? Is it that you have bills to pay, kids to send to private school, dance lessons or karate to pay for, or maybe it's that you LOVE traveling and put money back for a vacation fund? Well, we know those goals are not GUARANTEED to happen unless WE make them happen, right? We know we have to work hard towards our goals each month.
Are you one to give up early? Do you quit when the going gets tough? Think of all of the possibilities...The possibilities YOU could have if you just kept going!! If you kept working towards that goal, each and every day, what would it look like? Yes, it's going to take work, you might not always reach it...BUT...think of how YOU and your family will benefit just by working towards it each and every month. Have you ever heard that saying "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars!" I know that if you continue to work hard, you'll be able to reap what you sew.
I want to be honest with you here for a minute. When I returned from Haiti, I really REALLY struggled. I was ready to walk away. I didn't want to talk to anyone and I didn't want to party. I was my own worst enemy at the time. I was worried that if I had a conversation and Haiti was brought up, I would break down. Y'all know I'm a cryer but I didn't want to be. It was an amazing experience but I didn't know how to describe that experience that I had just had. I didn't want to exploit my new friends so I never shared photos either. I just couldn't help thinking about how a family in Haiti can live on $300 to $400 a year and I've got some customers that will spend that without blinking an eye or how we drop that on a fun weekend out or on a grocery bill.
It wasn't until my husband came into the office one night while I was "playing office" and he could tell something was off and had been "off". He knew I wasn't really up for chatting about things, and honestly, I still haven't told him much or shown pictures. BUT...the conversation we had that night helped me SNAP OUT OF IT!! He helped me realize how much I contribute to my family. How much our day to day lives would be different if Thirty-One wasn't in the picture. I know not all of you use this income as your full time pay, but we do! He helped me realize the POSSIBILITIES that I have with Thirty-one so I can continue to give back to my new friends in Haiti along with sponsoring a little girl. He knew I wanted to go back soon but helped me realize that that's NOT a Guarantee. Without Thirty-One, there would be no possible way that we could afford for me to go back, no way we could afford to sponsor Valanka, no way we could live the way we live. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about my new Haitian friends and not a day goes by that I don't thank God for putting Thirty-One in my life. I know that through Thirty-One, I can accomplish ANYTHING and that the possibilities are endless. That's what keeps me going!
With Thirty-One, there are so many POSSIBILITIES to make great money, build a team, climb the leadership ladder, earn bonuses(coming soon), and so much more. If you set some GOALS and work your hardest, each and every month...the POSSIBILITIES are endless for you too!!
Here are a few pictures from my Mission trip and I hope you enjoy them! Please know that I'm here for you. I want to help YOU see the potential you have to make this Bag thing happen!!
I could share hundreds of pictures!!

Picture 4- Brenda and Nicole Shaughnessy helping build a bed.

Plan the perfect party with the Hostess Rewards Flier
Earning exclusive products and amazing Hostess Rewards are the perks of hosting a Thirty-One party, and showing your Hostesses how they can achieve their party goals is an important part of the Hostess Coaching process.
As part of our October focus on Hostess Coaching, we’re highlighting key tools for you each week. Last week, we talked about the Hostess Coaching Checklist. This week, we’re focusing on the Hostess Rewards Flier. Along with the Hostess Coaching Checklist, use this key tool to set goals for your Hostess and get her excited for the party.
The bigger the party, the better the rewards! Show her what great half-price products, Hostess Exclusives and Hostess Credit she’ll earn at every level – and just what the two of you need to do to get her there. The flier also gives her a space to write out her wish list of amazing products and exclusives, which will help her set those goals.
She also can complete the guest list exercise on the flier to help her get the right number of guests to the party to meet her goals.
You and your Hostess are “Better Together” with Hostess Coaching! Visit the Hostess Coaching page on TOT today, and read your 411 email every Monday this month for new tips and advice on this important step for a successful party!
