Ep. 12: The Power of Community
On this episode of Iconic Insights, host Heather Chastain sits down with Cindy Monroe, Founder of Thirty-One Gifts and author of the new book, More Than a Bag: Celebrating the First 20 Years of the Thirty-One Story. In 2003, Cindy launched the company from her basement and grew it into one of the world’s most successful and recognized direct selling party plan companies. And during the journey, she became a fierce champion for female entrepreneurs.
In this conversation, Cindy and Heather talk about how her passion for helping other women drove the company’s success; the value of building a strong community, and what she would do differently if she were starting her business today.
Some of the things you’ll learn in this interview include:
- The importance of intrinsic motivators and how to use them to inspire people.
- Why omnichannel is a must for every direct selling company.
- Why human interaction is even more essential in an increasingly digital world.
