What is a direct sales business?
Direct selling can best be described as the marketing of products and services directly to consumers.
An estimated 15.8 million people are involved in direct selling in the US and most are women, although there are approximately 5.27 million of which are men or couples. The biggest majority are independent business entrepreneurs involved in selling a product or service individually, online or through a home party plan. Approximately 90 percent of all direct sellers are part time businesses.
I am a consultant for a few direct sales businesses and also maintain my own online business. Many work at home moms begin their own online business and offer a consultant or affiliate program to help promote the products or services.
Simply Sweet ‘n Sassy is my online business and website.

I have now been a consultant with Cookie Lee for 4 years and have loved every minute of it!

I love being a consultant for Thirty One. The first time I ordered one of the items, I was in love and knew I had to join the Christian based Thirty One team! The name Thirty-One comes from the verses of Proverbs 31. The Proverbs 31 woman is dearly loved and respected by him and her children, yet she is an individual in her own right. She manages the home and property with kindness and integrity. Her savvy business skills are partly brought about by her desire to serve others, to do good deeds and prosper. Cindy Monroe, founder and CEO of Thirty One, knew women just like this, and she wanted to find a way for every woman to be recognized for who they are and for their hard work!
Our mission is a reflection of this philosophy: to celebrate, encourage and reward women by offering quality products and an outstanding opportunity to become successful business owners. Our stylish, affordable products are exclusive to Thirty-One. From our signature purses and totes to storage solutions that help organize your life, you’ll find something to fit every personality and situation. Whether you’re looking for style, organization, the perfect giftable item, or a little bit of everything, explore Thirty-One’s trendy and affordable purses, totes, and organizers!
