So you are interested in Thirty One products. You think they are kind of cool and you’re thinking about looking into becoming a thirty one consultant.
After all you own a gazillion 31 purses and you are known to be the thirtyone gifts gifter right?
It makes sense that if you want to make extra money (since you love the thirtyone bags) that you would be a great thirty one consultant.
I mean, optimism and enthusiasm is half the battle right? Of course you’ll be a great thirty one consultant, but is it worth it?
Let’s investigate thirty one and those nifty thirty one bags and see what you might be getting into if you decide to become a consultant for thirtyone.
The first time I ever heard of thirty one products, I was totally confused. I remember thinking “ Thirty one what?” . Was I going to have to go to a thirty one home party and some one was turning thirty one or was I going to have to buy thirty one things from the person who was selling thirtyone?
I’d never heard of thirty one consultants nor had I heard of the 31 bag.
But then I saw them….awweee yeah…man..that thirty one ceo or whoever (more about that in a sec) was one smart puppy!
I found myself immersed in a 31 catalog at a 31 party just looking at 31 bags being handed around to thirty one buyers (ha ha! Just kidding there..but I wonder if anyone has ever had 31 people at their thrity one home parties…hmmmm.)
So here I am today learning more about 31 products. They are everywhere now!
And when you hear about a thirty one independent consultant that is having a party?
IF…..you want to socialize and spend money on thirtyone bags.
If you’re like me, you just stand in awe of the cars that are taking up all the parking spaces in your neighborhood and maybe, just maybe you check out the thirty one consultant login for the party on the website that your friend thirty one crazy consultant neighbor gave you a couple of days before the party. (That’s what I did)
Ok…aren’t I suppose to be telling you about the thirtyone bags history by now?
Of course, so here you go:
Thirty one Gifts was started in 2003 by Cindy Munroe in Tennessee. It’s intention is to empower women to become top marketers for a top product and earn extra income at home.
Today there are over 85,000 thirtyone consultants and they’ve made over 700 million in sales! Wowzer!
Thirty One was named after Proverbs 31 which talks about a virtuous woman.
What does that mean?
Let’s break it down by looking at the Proverb 31 right here and right now:
(Oh wait…is someone somehow monetizing off of the bible? Yes…but I like it with this company.)
Sayings of King Lemuel
31 The sayings of King Lemuel—an inspired utterance his mother taught him.
2 Listen, my son! Listen, son of my womb!
Listen, my son, the answer to my prayers!
3 Do not spend your strength[a] on women,
your vigor on those who ruin kings.
4 It is not for kings, Lemuel—
it is not for kings to drink wine,
not for rulers to crave beer,
5 lest they drink and forget what has been decreed,
and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.
6 Let beer be for those who are perishing,
wine for those who are in anguish!
7 Let them drink and forget their poverty
and remember their misery no more.
8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
9 Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character
10 [b]A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
So there you have it. Proverbs 31. If you’re a woman, this probably does inspire you. I mean…it’s talking about a women to Totally Rocks!
And…that woman seems to definitely be going to heaven. Who doesn’t want that right?
So Thirty One was founded on Christian Principles and it continues to be a mainstay in the way that they inspire and motivate their thirtyone consultants day in and day out whether they work in a thirty one outlet of if they are a thirty one independent consultant.

Some people join as a thirtyone consultant so that they can make enough to buy all those thirtyone products and bags that they offer in their catalogue.
This is great, but there are lots of women who become thirty one consultants so that they can also make a good living at home making extra money online, at home and overall bring in a great extra income (if not THE income to support the family…that would be ideal right?)
So to join, you just go to their thirty one online site and you apply for being a 31 consultant by paying $99.00 to get their thrityone enrollment package with lots of goodies (supposedly $300 worth of thirtyone products) to get started.
You then start to raise funds by having 31 parties at your home, scheduling a 31 party at all your friends and family’s homes and overall become THE thirty one consultant that people look for when they look to find a thirty one consultant.
But….what if no one finds you or you’ve already used up all your friends for the thirty one party extravaganza?
How do you make money off this mlm opportunity then?
The perks? Are they good enough?
- You receive 25% commission on all sales of the 31 bags and 31 products right out of the gate.

I’m a mompreneur of a different breed.
I am totally support of thirty one consultants and their jump into the entrepreneur bucket of mlm and home based businesses to make extra money.
After all, thirty one is one of the great moneymaking ideas out there….well…there are so many but I do like their products!
However, I know I have a better way of being a mompreneur and making extra money at home without having to have parties and stock an inventory of 31 bags.
So what are some of the challenges of becoming an independent thirtyone consultant?
Multi-Level marketing and home bases business that help you make money at home or online take work. More work that you might think and 31 bags is not exception.
The problem with being a thirtyone consultant is that when you run out of family and friends and friend of friends and your Aunt Sally’s old Friend of an Uncle……well…that’s when the little bit of money that you get from your sales online STOPS.
It’s all about cash flow and you have to keep it going if you want to make extra money online or at home.
So many mlm and stay home mom’s fall to the failure of network marketing companies like this.
They learn one skill and then when it doesn’t work anymore, they falter in the online business arena.
I can show you a way to make money online that doesn’t rely on how many friends you have or how many people think thrityone bags are popular.
You won’t have to worry about offering 31 bag sales and offers and you don’t have to have thirtyone parties to sustain your income.
