Did you sign up for the Virtual Visionaries?

 This weekend is going to be a first for me!  I usually love to try to win a trip with Avon to the big Summer events every year but this year because of COVID19 - it's going to be online.

It's only 59.00 and you get about 150 in products - so worth it!  Let me help you this year to earn more money with Avon.  By Watching some of the videos I've created you can find out where your weak links are.  

The fortune is in the follow up!

Have you heard that before?  It's true.  If  you don't give out samples, books and links to your website, you won't prosper.

Your customer needs to feel like you care - One of my reps always puts little stickers on her bags, candy kisses in them and puts a special twist on her friendship.

I like to do little thank you notes and I buy extra products and give them as free gifts.

I have an invoice which at the bottom has formulas that calculate how many free gifts they get:

if over 25 they get a lip balm

if over 40 they get a glimmer stick

if over 60 they get a hand cream

if over 80 they get a goody bag valued at 15-20.00

and yes with each step the keep each one as they climb.  If you know excel and would like a copy of this, let me know.

I want you to be a real winner in this business.  It can be such a blessing to have an income you can do from home.  Take a moment and read my article on becoming a winner...

I lost a few customers to the virus this year and it made me sad that they were alone.  Let's try to pick up the pace and see how many people we can truly help.

Together as a team, we can make a difference in the world.

When my kids were a little, on New Year’s Eve we had a tradition that I called “love gifts” and that was a slip paper that everybody fills out for another person. So if there are 7 in your family. each person should get at least six messages. I made a wall hanging with little compartments with zippers, like mailboxes. The children would write down with kindness or act of service that they were willing to do and commit to for the next year for that person. It might be “Daddy,I am going to shine your shoes every Saturday for one year.” Or “Suzy, I promise not to play with your toys unless you say it’s OK.”
Anyway, when I left my 1st husband, in 2007 I took only the things I had purchased myself or made and forgot to get that cute wall hanging. Last night, I created one for my daughter, hubby, and kids. It’s So much fun to sit around drinking Martinelli’s and eating homemade cinnamon rolls on New Year’s Eve and listening to them read the little notes.. I thought I would share this family tradition with you. A lot of families are looking for a tradition that they can adopt and this is certainly a good one. Doing this, helps them realize the reason for the season, showing gratitude for others and helps the children relate to others by giving service.

The Fall Weather is starting to settle in...

Thank heavens!  We had some real scorchers here in the Scottsdale area this summer.  A few times it was over 120 as my car documented very well!  What do you do when it is really hot?  What is your go-to cool down mode?

You are going to think this is crazy because we have a totally air-conditioned home but if it climbs above 80 in our home, I have a fan that I turn on with my remote and aim it at my reclining chair.  Silly - I know.  I also set up our exercise area to be just like AMGEN gym and have a television and fans so I'm more comfortable.  The thing they forget to tell you here is that it gets so hot that before you even perspire, you've already lost precious fluid from dehydration.

One time, I did a little Avon booth in at an event outside and - honestly, we were out there for just 3 hours and when I came in I fainted.  It didn't even seem that hot to me - maybe only 90 degrees or so.  Had no clue I was dehydrated.  I a little was incoherent. It wasn't nearly as hard as what my daughter went through when she was in the Army. 

It reminded me of the story my daughter told me when she was doing laundry in Afghanistan and she blacked out in the laundromat.  the Rangers threw her into their humvee and drove like wild across the desert to their "barracks".  The doctors put her on iv' and fixed her right up but not before they let her spend time with them. "They had to take better care of the Rangers who really put it out there on the line in the 10th mountain division.  They had air-conditioned tents, showers, recliners - big-screen TVs and work out equipment.  When they come off a mission they need serious downtime," she said. 
The reason I am telling you this is because it's starting to be that time of year when we think about our servicewomen.  They need toiletries and care packages.  If you would like to donate to this, I will pack up some Avon bath and body products and put your name on the card.  We need the boxes to go into the mail before November 1st, so think about it and then come back and click on one of these buttons and we will take care of the rest.  You can also click that you want this to be anonymous or that you want me to add your name to the list of donors that I will put on this site as soon as it goes out.

Love you for thinking of others - especially those women who had to leave their kids at home to protect our freedoms.  We will pay for the postage! 

Each bundle will have a handcrafted thank you card and we will sign your name.
