Melissa has entered the world of sharing files on her blog!

Posted on Updated on

So, I have entered the Twilight Zone. This old lady has figured out how to put FILES on my blog! So it’s your lucky day!

There is a new tab called Melissa’s shared documents. Anytime I add a file, I will post it there also.


I’m so excited to be able to share files with you ladies now. One Drive is how I’m doing it. I can make a folder public, get a link for the file I uploaded, and share that document via One Drive. This may be really old news to some of you savvy ladies out there, but MAN did it rock my world when I figured this out on accident!

So anyways, I am sharing my Enter My Drawing slips for everyone. These are not able to be edited because they’re actually a jpg file I made in . I use these  bad boys in EVERYTHING I do. I’ll be making a video on recruiting soon (and how I use these as a recruiting tool), but for now…here’s a file for me to SHARE. WOOHOO! 🙂


And some notes on One Drive…when you share a link for the file, they can view the file and download the file, but they cannot alter yours. Good stuff right there folks 🙂

You can check out more information on One Drive at:

Have you ever thought about becoming a Thirty-One Consultant?

Video Posted on Updated on

If you have ever thought about becoming a Thirty-One consultant, this video is for you! I just wanted to take a second to address some quick questions people often have about joining Thirty-One.

I’m also going to be working on a video about my journey as a Thirty-One consultant, and why this company is so much bigger than just selling bags 🙂 I’m excited and nervous to share a little piece of my WHY and journey with this company!

But in the meantime, here’s just a little nugget of information on joining Thirty-One:

All You Need to Know About Hosting a Thirty-One Fundraiser

Image Posted on Updated on

Have you ever thought about doing a fundraiser with Thirty-One?


Do you have a child in an extracurricular activity? 

Here is a little twist on the traditional way of doing fundraisers.  Instead of offering a fundraiser to an organization such as your local High School Cheerleaders, I am offer parents of the cheerleader a portion of my commission to help you pay for your child’s sports activity.  You can use this for any other organization that a parent must pay to have their children participate.

**I do them for entire organizations as well, I just want you to know it is possible to do this for a single member also!

What kind of fundraisers can I help you earn money for?





Show choir



School trips




Relay for Life


Beauty pageants

Study abroad programs…

You name it…we can do it! I’ve also done fundraisers for In Vitro Funds and Adoption Funds!

What’s in it for you?

  • You can earn the money it costs for your child to join a team sport for the year. You’ll earn 30% of all sales from your fundraiser

So how does it work? 

It’s so simple!

  1. You get a packet in the mail with catalogs, order forms, and customer special fliers.
    1. If you have “helpers” that’s even better! I can send more than one packet for Grandma, your best friend, your sister…anyone who wants to help you collect orders!
    2. If it’s a whole group doing the fundraiser, like a dance team, I will send a packet for EACH mom.
  2. We will set the event up online through my Thirty-One website. People will be able to order from all over the country under your fundraiser’s name.
  3. We can also set up a Facebook event. I set it all up, post at least 3 times a day, and give away prizes! It’s a great way for people from all over to be able to see the product and order from your fundraiser!

Don’t have a fundraiser need of your own?

  • Pass this on to a friend that might be able to benefit from this, think of your friends and family who could benefit from this!
  • Do you know someone who is trying to earn money for a trip? Mission trips, youth group outings, church outings, cancer benefits (or other medical bills benefits), anything you can think of…I can help!

I’ve been doing fundraisers for Thirty-One for about 6 years now. I’ve been with the company for seven years! If a great, easy, FUN way to earn some money for your fundraising efforts is what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place!
