For the month of June we are having a series of POP UP Shops at our Ellerslie location. To help you get to know the vendors a little better we are going to be introducing you to them a little bit before hand.
Introducing- Jill Blair with Thirty-One Gifts
WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY NAME?
Thirty-One Gifts. The company was founded by Cindy Monroe in 2003. She had one simple goal in mind- to help women by giving them the opportunity to run their own successful business. Not only do our fashionable, functional products make life easier- they also help independent business owners across the country support their families and reach their dreams.
WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
Jill Blair. There are many independent consultants across Canada that also run their Thirty-One business. But for me personally, I have a team of over 40 ladies!
WHAT IS YOUR TOP SELLING PRODUCT?
My top selling product is the large utility tote!! There are at least 31 one ways to use the LUT, so you can never have enough.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT?
It's hard to pick just one. I think it would have to be the large utility tote (for the reasons mentioned above) and the double duty caddy.
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOUR PRODUCT?
You can find me at the odd vendor show, but the majority of my presence is online and home parties. Most people are busy, so online shopping and parties are the quickest and easiest. However, there's something refreshing about getting your friends together for drinks, eats, fun and a little bit of shopping at someone's home, a restaurant or at the park.
WHAT DO YOU WISH MORE PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?
Thirty-One Gifts is a direct sales company. I wish more people would be open to these type of businesses. Honestly, there are some consultants that can be pushy and it tends to the give company a bad name... but please know we aren't all like that :) This company truly has a huge heart and I love the values they live by. My suggestion with any direct sales company is find a consultant who loves the products and you won't go wrong.
HOW DO YOU SEE YOUR BUSINESS EXPANDING?
In my life right now, I am a mom of two littles and a full time nurse; so life is pretty busy. What i want to do with Thirty-One is share the love I have for these products. So to me, that means more engagement with customers online, having more home get togethers and getting these amazing products into people's hands. I would also love to grow my team. I've formed some lasting friendships with both consultants and past customers. Lastly, I want to continue to fundraise for organizations closet to my heart; specifically children and mental health. I would also love to help others to be able to raise funds for their organization or sports team.
Jill will be popping up June 14:
