  • What do you mean you could have home parties like 2-n-1? Are you talking about doing a home party and selling both at the same home party? If so, I don't know of a single Direct Selling Company that would allow that. I know for a fact that Thirty One doesn't. You may need to go over the policy and procedures and regulations of Mia Bella to see if you are even allowed to be a part of another DS company while being a consultant for Mia Bella.

  • You cannot by the Direct Selling Association market two businesses at the same time. They have to be separate. So you can do one party and the other another time. I sell Scentsy and Wildtree. I have to keep them separate. I could not have a Scentsy party and wear a wildtree shirt and so forth.

    As for thirty-one. I like their stuff but you will have to constantly find new customers. It is not a consumable product and eventually, it'll be like tupperware where everyone already has it and customers are rare. Which is why I started up wildtree. Food, something people will buy each month. Plus the culinary club so once I have enough in that, and they buy every month or every other month, I don't have to worry if I couldn't do a party that month because I have customers that keep buying food. Consumable products are the key.

  • I'm a Independent Thirty-one Consultant, as per Thirty-one policy you can sell both, however you can't at the same party/event. If you want to talk Thirty-one, I would be happy to answer any questions you have :).

  • I sell Thirty-One and SendOutCards.  I can do both businesses as long as I market them separately.  One word of caution though, I haven't heard many positive things about Mia Bella lately.  So just make sure you do your research and compare to Scentsy and Gold Canyon if you want a candle business. 


    Good luck with your decision!  :)
