What is the commission on personal and downline sales?
Every consultant starts making 25% commission on all personal sales from your very first order. This percentage goes up as you sign up new member to your team. You also earn commission on your downline once you promote to Senior Consultant (which is when you have 2 qualified consultants on your team). You start at 2% which also increases as your team grows.

The requirement to stay active is to sell $200 every rolling 3 months. This is very easy to achieve since that is only 1 party.
How often do catalogs change?
Catalogs chance twice a year… February and August.
What is the most popular product? What is your favorite product?
The most popular product in the Thirty-One catalog is the Thermal Tote. This insulated tote comes in a variety of colors and can be personalized for free. At only $18, it’s the perfect bag to carry lunches to school, work or to the park.
MY favorite item in the Fall/Winter ’09 catalog is the Small Bow Purse in Burgundy Stripe. It’s cute and stylish and is a great size for carrying around everyday.
