This blog post is to tell you a little bit about myself and why I am selling Avon Products while also trying to start a career in writing.
I am disabled enough now that I can not work outside my home. It is my dream to be a writer and I am pursuing this dream now, the second half of my life.
I have applied for SSDI but it is now a court battle, and I don’t know when it will be approved or if I will have to start the process all over again.
Meanwhile, I need an income. My attorney told me that I can earn up to $1000.00 a month and not lose my claim, but no more than that.
Years ago when I was working full-time, I sold Avon on the side. I did quite well. One reason for that is my co-workers bought from me, so I had a ready-made customer base.
This time around, it is not as easy. I don’t work in an office or have co-workers. I am not able to get out and walk the neighborhood blocks knocking on doors and leaving brochures on doorknobs.
I have a great many wonderful friends on Facebook, some of whom I have known all my life, some I have connected with because we belong to the same faith movement, and some I met from playing Farmtown and Farmville back in 2002. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends and grateful for those who are placing orders with me.
Another new thing about Avon is that now I can have an online store and sell to anyone anywhere in the USA. This is really great because I have a lot of relatives around the state and some scattered around the country. And of course my Facebook friends are all over the country as well!
Just the same, it is harder this time because I have to work harder to get customers. I can’t get out much but when I do I take the Avon brochures with me and leave them at the salon, the doctor’s office, the mechanics, or anywhere else I might go. Mom and Dad are good about taking brochures with them on their errands as well.
Every two weeks I take the latest brochures to church and leave them in the foyer, and I have picked up a few customers that way. The Christmas season is about to be upon us, and I am sure I will pick up more customers.
The proceeds from my Avon sales are to help me with my writing, buy clothes, take care of various needs like car inspection and tags. My son has been paying for my doctors and medications. I would like to take that burden from him, and pay for those things myself, but I need to sell more Avon to do that.
Avon is a great company to work with. They do wonderful things for the sales representatives. They raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and for Domestic Violence Awareness, sometimes called Women’s Empowerment.
($5.00 for each Vitale Cream goes to Avon Breast Cancer Research)
The products are top of the line. Avon has its own labs and they are on the cutting edge of skin care and anti-aging products. They have come classic colognes that remain a favorite in the market, and they are always adding new perfumes that appeal to the latest generation of women and men.
Avon’s cosmetics are not tested on animals and most, if not all, of it is allergy free. All of it is dermatologist tested. There are a multitude of shades to choose from in foundations, eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, blushes, lip colors, lip liners, nail colors, nail care products. They even have loose mineral foundation and blush!
They have bath and shaving products for men as well as a variety of colognes and after-shaves. They have fun and colorful bath products for children, as well as toys and clothes.
They carry women’s clothing that includes plus sizes, shoes and purses. Their jewelry is highly popular, and all of it is nickel free. That means it will not cause your skin or ears to be irritated and the metal color will not turn. Some of the jewelry is sterling silver.
Avon also carries specialty items like candles, kitchen ware, holiday decorations, body lotions, bubble bath, hand creams, deodorants, and cutting edge hair products.
I myself use Avon for all my cosmetic, bath and body scent needs. I love all the products but I do have my favorites!
Please go to my online store, register, and shop around. There are many online specials that are not available in the hard copy brochure! My contact information is on the website, please feel free to call me or send an email if you have questions about any of the products.
Your business will help me to support myself, and I will be so grateful to be your Avon Lady!
