Congrats & Stats for February 2014

Hey ladies!

Have you checked out TOT ( lately? The "How to Market March" has great tools for you to book parties, recruit and monthly special fliers and video clips. Check it out.

Who knew we had cute printables for baby feet, pantry labels, water bottle labels, cupcake toppers and more?! Go to for all the fun Thirty-One branded printables.

Want a bigger paycheck? The answer is filling your calendar with parties. From parties, recruits will come. Join me for a Facebook training tomorrow night, Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. MDT (8:30 p.m. CST, 9:30 p.m. EST) to get the 411 on the 5-1-1 party. You should have the event in your Facebook Events. Click "JOIN" or "MAYBE" to see the posts. If you do NOT RSVP, you will not receive the information. I just sent the Facebook training event invite or click here to join.

Looking forward to seeing you online tomorrow night!

Your Proud Senior Director,

New Consultants,

If you haven't schedule a new consultant orientation call with me, please do so ASAP. Email me a few dates and times you have available. Plan on 30-45 minutes. Thanks!

March Special

For every $35, get 1 of 4 totes for 50% OFF!

At full service checkout, remember to ask every guest about the special. If your guest spends $70, then she can get 2 totes for half off. If she spends $105, then 3 totes for half off.

Do you know your party average?

Just by creating a solution for your customer you can increase your party sales AND helps your Hostess with her Hostess Rewards by ADD-ON SALES.


A customer comes over for full service checkout. She has a Large Utility Tote on her wish list. I fill out the order form for the guest and hand out a blank sheet for a wish list while the guests are looking at the catalog. Here is the conversation:

Me: Is the Large Utility for you or a gift?

Customer: It's for me to take to the pool.

Me: This is the perfect bag for the pool. You'll be able to fit all your towels, sunscreen and snacks all in one tote. Great choice! With the Zipper Pouch, you can keep sunscreen and goggles separate and easy for your kids to grab. I also wanted to show you how the Picnic Thermal Tote fits easily in the Large Utility. You can put lunch, snacks and water bottles in here to keep cool while you have a fun day at the pool with your kids.

Customer: I like it fits all together. What colors does it come in?

Registration is OPEN!

Want to increase your business? Meet and connect with other consultants? Take training classes from the best of the best? National Conference is where it's at, ladies! Consultants who attend on average increase their business by 40%. Who wants a 40% raise?!
