thinking of joining us as an Thirty-One independent consultant? If you ended up on this page, my guess is that the thought has crossed your mind and you are intrigued — am I right?

You’re in good company. I was in your shoes just a short time ago. I couldn’t get enough of the bags, thought the idea of a discount would be worth it and didn’t mind the idea of making a little extra income in the process. Little did I know, this opportunity turned out to be a game-changer for my family!

In fact, according to a June 2019 Survey on, nearly half of working Americans (45 percent) report having a gig outside of their primary job.  Whether you need help to cover your everyday expenses or want some extra cash to splurge on fun extras, we may have just what you are looking for!

Hi, thanks for stopping by!!  Soooo…. you’re thinking about joining Thirty-One, right?!  *SO* exciting!  Since you’re here, I figure I should introduce myself!  I’m Hillary Barbati, a Senior Director with Thirty-One Gifts.  I’m based in Webster, NY and love that I have a growing team across the country!  I fell in love with Thirty-One bags over 9 years ago and it’s been a whirlwind of an adventure!

A little about me…my professional background is in Marketing, but at the time I was working in the pharmacy world.  I was invited to a party and wanted it all.  I decided these bags were SO great that I needed a permanent discount for myself so I purchased an enrollment kit.  A few short months later, I was *LOVING* every minute of my bag lady life and having a few parties each month.  I promoted into leadership and have built an amazing team that is on this bag-loving adventure with me.  I love that I have ultimate flexibility in my schedule so my family stays my #1 priority, I can be creative with how I approach my business and I can help others be successful and meet their goals!

In addition to my bag biz, I also love to help families plan amazing vacations as a travel agent.  I love being a mommy to two crazy kiddos – Enzo (8) and Mia (3).  My husband, Dave, entertains all my wild ideas and is so supportive of my businesses.  I love being able to treat him and the kids (and myself!) to some fun extras! 

Have a Few Questions?

Q: What do I need to do to get started?

A:  The investment to get started currently ranges from $69 to $189!  No matter which kit you choose, you are starting with our best-selling products in the prints and patterns that you choose!  That’s right!  You even get to pick your prints and some personalization!  Check out the kits here.

Q: What's the catch? Do I need to spend a certain amount each month?

A:  The next best reason to join the team is that we have no monthly minimums or quotas. To stay active, a consultant needs to submit $200 every 3 months.  That can be $200 once a quarter, or $67/month, whatever works best for you and your needs. You can truly make this business work for you and your family – you can do as little or as much as you’d like and scale up or back as life happens… because let’s be real – life happens.

Q: How much time do you spend on your business?

A:  As much or as little time as you’d like. Most team members spend about 5 hours a week consistently working their business. That is usually more than enough to keep the momentum rolling and creating a thriving business.

Q: I'm not good at sales. Is there training?

A:  I thought the same thing!  Lucky for us, the product is AMAZING and it doesn’t require a coffee meeting or a long sales pitch to understand how to use them!  My customers love the product for themselves and for gifts. The training program that Thirty-One has for new consultants is amazing, and I have a proven Jumpstart training to help you get started strong.  And, of course – I’ll help you every step of the way!
