Get Your Summer Glow On!

Avon has what you need to get glowing this summer. Let's face it, we all like to glow but we don't all want to spend a lot of time in the sun and some of us don't have a lot of time TO spend in the sun. With these products, you can have glowing skin anytime.

What's "Glowing" in Campaign 14!


I'll start with the special message. Some Avon Reps are now using text messaging a lot more than emailing to contact their customers. I haven't done it yet, although I do have customers who text me orders. If you would like for me to text the new brochure link to you at the beginning of each campaign, please send me a text at 256-479-4061 with your name and say "I want the book link" and I'll be glad to do that. I promise not to spam you, and only send the brochure once each campaign. I'll send it at the beginning in case you want to go ahead and place your order online either for me to add to my order or for direct delivery from Avon. Either way works for me, so do what is best for you. 

I'm sending this reminder early and will only send it once, because I am going to be out of town on my summer mission trip from Friday through next Thursday. I am planning to place my order on Monday night, June 17, so if you need to call me please call 256-479-4061 as that is my cell phone. I will be able to take orders on my phone (or by email or FB Messenger) and submit them from my phone, so please do not hesitate to order this campaign. Should you want to look at The Book online, the link to the brochure is highlighted just below in the next line.

Here are some of the best buys I spotted in the Campaign 14 brochure:
  • Pg. 3, Lip Glow Lip Gloss is any 2 for $10. 
  • Pg. 9, Beyond Color Lip Conditioner or Lipstick are $4.99 each.
  • Pg. 13, Gel Finish Top Coat and Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel are $5.99 each. Pick a pretty shade for a pedicure!
  • Pgs. 20-23, All Mascaras are on sale this campaign, including Love at 1st Lash.
  • Pgs. 26/27, All Foundations are on sale for $8.99 each.
  • Pg. 30, Dew Kiss and Flavor Savers Lip Balms are $1.29 each.
  • Pg. 43, The WOW DEAL is Far Away Eau de Parfum for $9.99.
  • Pg. 57, Perceive Cologne for men is specially priced at $12.99.
  • Pg. 71, Anew Power Serum is $22.99.
  • Pg. 74, The original Anew Clinical product, Advanced Wrinkle Corrector, is only $19.99.
  • Pg. 78, Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel has an exclusive Multi-Acid Complex to give you results similar to a pro glycolic peel. (Read more on the page.)
  • Pgs. 80/81, 4-Piece Boxed Kit of Ultimate Skin Care products and Platinum Skin Care products are $50 each kit.
  • Pg. 107, Another WOW DEAL is Skin So Soft Bonus-Size Shower Gel for $9.99 each. I love the convenience of these pump bottles for every one in the household!
  • Pg. 186/187, The Glow Baby Glow A Box gives you the opportunity to try two of our favorite skin care serums as well as a full size Crave Lip Gloss and Full Size Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment. The Lip Treatment is already a customer favorite!
Thanks so much for your loyal support of my business! If you feel inclined to forward this email to friends and family members, that would be greatly appreciated. I'm working on a Big Hairy Audacious Goal for June - having one online direct delivery order for every day of the month (a total of 30 orders) - so getting The Book link out to as many people as possible will certainly help me meet that goal. As of this writing it is going well, with 11 orders in 13 days. 🙂

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 13, 2019


I'm packing this morning to leave town on my annual stateside mission trip, (this year we are off to Ferguson, Missouri) but I realized I had not gotten the C13 Newsletter done, so I'm allotting myself just a few minutes for this. If I have any typos, please forgive me. 🙂

Top Ten in Sales for Campaign 13

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $1,223
 2. Leslie Clendenon PC   $494
 3. Gladys Faulk   $367
 4. Kelli Violet   $322
 5. Amy Budisalich   $321    (1st Campaign and look at you in the Top Ten already!)
 6. Regina Smith   $313
 7. Deanna Buswell   $235
 8. Rene Parker PC   $232
 9. Sharon Tibbs   $230
10. Margo Prytz   $217

We are half way through the selling cycle and Leslie Clendenon and Rene Parker are already over half way to President's Club for the year, so congratulations to both of them for keeping their businesses in good shape! I know that once you make PC you never want to fall out of it because the 40% guaranteed earnings on beauty products gives you a great incentive to stay. Margo Prytz is fast approaching the half way point, so I feel certain that she will make PC this year as well. 

In the last newsletter I asked Anna Kinsaul for tips about how she got customers to order at her online store, because she had over $400 in direct delivery sales in Campaign 11. She explained that she lives in a large subdivision with probably 1500 residents or more and they have a Facebook group for their neighborhood. Most of the people in the subdivision range in age from their late 20s to their early 40s and there are many children. She had simply posted once in the FB group that she was an Avon Representative and asked if anyone wanted Bug Guard and "the orders flooded in". Because she can do so, she places orders for them at her own online store whenever she has enough for a $40 order (so that she does not pay shipping), since most of them have smaller than $40 orders. Then she either delivers the orders to them or they come by her house to pick them up. So....the moral is that if YOU have a place to post about Bug Guard, do it! And if you want to order at your online store rather than through the usual way, do that too! Just remember that you cannot purchase brochures, samples, demos, etc. in that way and you will pay up front for orders and have your earnings on them deposited to your bank account.  

We've got someone to Spotlight this campaign, as our newest Cloud Climber, Amy Budisalich, shared some information about herself with me. She has been married to Derek for almost 22 years and they have two daughters: Riley 917) and Peyton (13). The moved from Tucson to Priceville in 2013 but she is originally from Illinois, which is where she grew up and where she met Derek. Amy has been an RN since 2008 and has been working at Sav-a-Life Pregnancy Resource Center for the past 2 years doing ultrasounds. She said she loves her job, and that is always a good thing! She states, "I've been back and forth about becoming a rep for a few years now. I've loved and used Avon for a long time. I'm excited about this new adventure and others around me are excited for me! I made a business page on Facebook, and I've gotten some good feedback there. My sister in IL has placed 2 orders already, and the ladies I work with are anxiously awaiting the arrival of my books. They have lists of items they want to order." As you can see from Amy making the Top Ten in her first campaign, she is off to a great start with Avon! Amy, I pray that your success will continue. 

FYI: Please be sure to read the information in the Beauty Buzz each week. Many Reps are having trouble submitting their orders because of the new feature that requires you to select whether to use your credit with Avon (some of you have that and some do not), when you pay your bill and you must do it before you can submit the order. If you did not read that in the BB, go to your home page, scroll down to the BB, choose "View All" at the bottom of that section, and then click on "Jun 3-9" to view last weeks articles. Also, some Reps are having issues with a pop-up about accepting the Terms and Conditions coming up and not seeing a way to accept them. I'm hoping all of that has been worked out or will be worked out when system maintenance is done this weekend. I haven't heard from any of you about the issue, I've just seen it talked about in some FB groups, so perhaps the Cloud Climbers have all managed to climb that cloud with no problem. We are a smart team, after all. 😊

That's all I have time for right now, so I'll report more on how my June BHAG is going in the next newsletter, but so far it is going pretty good. Also, I'm pretty sure there is a drawing I'm supposed to be doing for the last Challenge, but that will have to wait as well. May God bless each and every one of you. I'm praying for you and your business each day.

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaigns 11 and 12


"♪Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future.♫" Do you remember that song by the Eagles? It just popped into my head as I began to write about the fact that I let so much time pass that I'm now doing a combined Newsletter again.😳 Ah, well. As we take care of important things, other things must sometimes take a back seat. However, I am going to be disciplined today and get this done! As I checked my reports for the top people in sales, I'm now sorry that I didn't get the C11 Newsletter out on time, because some of you are really doing great, and I am so very proud of you and should have said so before now!!!

Anna told me some time ago that she only wanted to do direct delivery sales and you may notice that it seems to be working for her right now. Anna, do you have any tips to share with us on how you encourage customers to purchase in this way? I might be able to use a few of those tips myself!

We warmly welcome a new Cloud ClimberAmy Budisalich of Decatur, AL! Amy and I have chatted back and forth through email and FB just a little bit and she tells me she considers herself a resident of Priceville and she is excited to have her Avon business started. She has also been taking some of the Avon U training courses and finding them very helpful as she begins her Avon journey. 

I have one more Challenge for you, and this will be the last one unless we get 8 participants, which is just under 10% of the team. In the beginning of my Challenge program, I stated that if little interest was shown I would drop the program after a few tries. I think we've given it enough of a trial to see that most of you are just not interested in participating, or else you just aren't reading the newsletters and don't know there are Challenges in them 😭. I announced this Challenge on our FB group page last week, and you have until I get the next newsletter sent to let me know you have met the Challenge - meaning you have at least two weeks to get it done. The Challenge is in the image attached and all you have to do is share it at least one way. You can text it, put on Facebook or IG, email it, etc., just as long as you get it out there. Of course, you have to be prepared to send out the "bags" of samples, but you can order some after sharing and get that part done on your own schedule. The Challenge is just to get the offer shared, and I have already gotten four takers since I shared it, with one of those not being a current customer. 

I want to give a Shout Out to Linda Wardell, who has been doing some extra hard work lately in promoting her business on social media. I've particularly noticed the Avon posts on her FB story, and I hope her FB friends are taking notice as well and her business will grow through her efforts. CCs, tell me what you are doing to further your business for a Shout Out in the next newsletter. 

Birthdays for June include: Vicky White (6/4), Annette Shepard (6/25), and Kathy McAlpin (6/28). Happy birthdayto these three! Celebrating Avon Anniversaries in June are: Deanna Buswell (2 years on 6/1), Anna Kinsaul (2 years on 6/12), Susan Watkins (3 years on 6/16), Vicky White (16 years on 6/20), Ann Henry (29 years on 6/25), and Virginia Curtis (20 years on 6/29). Congratulations to these hard working Avon ladies!

By now most of you, if not all of you, will have heard from Dee Powers, who is the new Field Trainer for most of the area where our Cloud Climbers reside. If you live outside of her territory, I'm sure you have heard from your Field Trainer as well. Here's a bit of background for those who don't know what a FT is: For many years, Avon had District Sales Managers, Division Managers, and Field Trainers. We all interacted most with our DSMs, had some interaction with DMs, and there were occasional classes taught in various locations by Field Trainers. When Avon decided that Leadership Reps like myself could do (and often were doing) most of the work done by the DSMs, they did away with that position and hired Sales Coaches and Leadership Coaches to work with the top Reps in Sales and Leadership in various ways. Now these Coaches' job descriptions have changed and they no longer work with just the top people but are Field Trainers to help ALL Representatives. Therefore, if Dee (or your Field Trainer, if it is not Dee), invites you to a FB call, a meet and greet in your area, etc., I do hope that you will participate if you can. Dee sent out a document this morning with a lot of information and locations for a meet and greet, so be sure to look at that and RSVP if you can make one of them. I'll be attending the one at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, at Newk's in Huntsville, but I could also attend one at the IHOP in Athens on the morning of Friday, June 28. In fact, if you will let me know that you are going to be at that one, I will do my best to attend it as well so that I can see you, too! If you can't make it to one of those meetings but you would like some one-on-one training from your Field Trainer, be sure to let her know. She is hired by Avon to train, so take advantage of that opportunity if you need it!

Remember that I am praying daily for you and your business, and let me know if there is a way I can help you with it. In particular, if there is someone who you think might be interested in learning more about the Avon business, I'd be happy to send an email with details to them and include a link to your online store so they can get started there. All I need is a name and an email address, but make sure you get permission to share it with me first. 

Some of you are in contact with me regularly while there are others that I never hear from. I plan to start doing some Power Hour calls of my own later in the summer, so if we have never talked over the phone before, we will have the opportunity to do that then. 

That's it for now. I hope that each of you has a most wonderful weekend!

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy, or Not? Your Summer Has Potential!

Greetings from your potential Avon Mentor!

Summertime can be a time when you want to just relax and take it easy, or it can be a time when you exercise a bit more discipline and plan for your future! I'm having to put that discipline into practice myself right now, because my husband is going to be retiring soon and I want to keep being able to contribute to the charitable works that we've been contributing to and also add a few more to the list. My passion, and the main reason for my business, is working hard for the Lord, and part of that is my desire to help others do the same. If I want that to continue, I must keep stretching myself and building my business. 

What about you? Do you have goals and dreams? I'd love for you to share them with me so that I can be praying about those. I'd also love to help you build a business that can help you meet those goals. For a one-time $30 investment, you will get over $80 in products to sell or use yourself in order to give testimonials about them to your customers. You will get a website that is absolutely free where your customers all over the nation can shop and have products delivered directly to their homes. You will have the option to order brochures to give to local customers that you want to deliver to, or you can just direct local customers to your website for ordering if you prefer. You will receive free training from Avon and have full access to me as your mentor in order to take advantage of my 32 years of experience as an Avon Representative. 

So...which will your summer be? Lazy and money wasting or busy and money making? If you choose the latter, go to and click on Become a Representative to get started!

In Campaign 13 Avon is featuring Anew Skin Care and encouraging customers to turn their regimen into a ritual. In other words, choose the skin care regimen that is right for you and make taking care of your skin a habit that you do every day. Anew skin care systems make it so easy to do this, and if you aren't sure which system is right for you, use our Skin Care Finder to discover the products that fit your skin's needs.
