In July 2011, I started on the home-based business adventure with my own Thirty-One business. I had no idea how much I would love to sell bags! I have met so many amazing women (and men) through this business. Not only do I love the company Thirty-One and the great values that they stand for, but I love being able to sell such great, adorable, personalize-able totes/bags/purses/organizational items. I decided I wanted a name for my business, and I called it Dory’s Tote-ally Purse-onal Gifts.
Well, last week after going back and forth for weeks, I decided to join another up-and-coming company, Rendi. I had first heard about Rendi through my friend Sarah back in February. This is a company on the newer end of Direct Sales (DS), and they specialize in personalized frames and wall signs. This is such a popular thing to do now, and I love the color and theme options that Rendi offers for their items. Now, when I signed up, I did promise Tim that I wouldn’t actively work to sell Rendi until after the school year ended. However, if you are looking for something, feel free to check out my website: www.dory.rendistyle.com
As much as I wanted to keep calling this business “Tote-ally Purse-onal Gifts,” it was just too reminiscent of only selling bags. Now, I have expanded to Rendi, as well as the vinyl and other personalized items that I make. I have actually been getting orders for my personalized crafts, which is so exciting!
Now, I need to have a new name. I have been working all week on playing with names with Tim and my dear neighbor Eva (and her friends and family). Here are some of the front runners. Now I need your help! Which are your top choices? Do you have other ideas? Once you have voted, leave a comment on this page. One voter will win their choice of a $15 gift certificate to Thirty-One, Rendi, or a personalized vinyl item. I will end the voting on November 30 at 11:59 PM.
