Just recently I was introduced to Thirty-One Gifts and I became hooked. So hooked in fact that I have decided to become a Thirty One Gifts consultant! So why do you ask do I want to add more work in my life as a single mom? Where am I going to find the time? How I am going to build my brand?
Those questions are relatively easy to answer. I am a non-stop mom that is empowered by working and owning something that I can call my own. I have an A type personality and very organized. I have always wanted to own my own business and this is a good way to get back in the game. I use to be a consultant for a now defunct jewelry company and I loved every second of it. Sure it was a lot of work and the money was good, but networking and enjoying the company of others outweigh the reward.
Money – yes there is a startup cost but when I originally was a jewelry consultant and gained traction I quickly recouped the money that I spent on the startup kit. I was also able to make enough to save money that I and build a good cushion for myself and my daughter. She is a little older now and she has her friends and playdates, I finished my MBA and decided that I needed a different balance in my life. I enjoy my career and am thankful every day for my job, but I want to do something for me. I have always loved planning parties and this is a great opportunity and the timing perfect so why not jump at the chance.
So this is a new chapter and more to come. I will be reporting my progress and hosting parties both online and in person. Hopefully you will follow me on my new journey.
