Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter for Campaign 11

Greetings!

This newsletter is coming out a little later than planned, but yard work, my Spring fundraiser for ALANA, and my event Saturday took precedent. Oh yes, there was that other little thing, the PRP Tribute! Once again Avon treated its top performers (and Avon considers anyone with sales over $10,000 in a year a top performer) to a fantastic lunch, gifts, awards, and lots of fun. One of the best parts for me is getting to see so many of my fellow Reps. that I have known and celebrated with for many years. I posted pictures from the event on the "Southeast Region - New Avon" Facebook page and this link should take you to those: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.598288710546994&type=3   

Top Ten in Sales for C11

 1. Leslie Clendenon   $713   Wow!
 2. Kelsey McGowan   $542    Way to go!
 3. Sandra Moore  HS   $537   Yes, I was outsold by two of my team members, and I'm happy about it, too! 😍
 4. Gladys Faulk  $352
 5. Debbie Fortenberry  $328
 6. Phyllis Smith  $302
 7. Margaret McCrary  $288
 8. Amanda Poarch  $273   New! I know Deanna Buswell is happy for her newest team member to be doing so well! 
 9. Kelli Violet  $230
10. Alison Hogan  $200

I put out a challenge to the team in the last newsletter and only had two team members accept that challenge - Deanna Buswell and Leslie Clendenon - so I want to thank them both for participating in this effort to put more money in their pockets from sales and from me! Deanna will have to let me know if she meets her goal, as she is working to build the number of Direct Delivery eStore orders she has and that won't show on my reports. I just checked my reports for Leslie and I see that she is on track for her goal of increasing her sales over prior campaigns. I'll let you know in June how well these ladies did and I'll continue to put out more challenges for you later, so be sure to always read these newsletters to learn what you can earn from your mentor!

Congratulations to Deanna Buswell for earning a Scratch Off Ticket in the #BLAB incentive! Yesterday she did a FB Live video with her two children so others could see the scratching, (because you never want to scratch alone), and her gift was Espira for a year!! Now, we don't know exactly which Espira products she will be receiving for a year, but I know this is a valuable gift and I expect there will be LOTS of Espira products coming to her. Congratulations to Deanna, and a big thank you  to her recruit, Stacie Barnes, for having a $150+ first or second order. Deanna was asking me a question about claiming her prize and I told her I could not answer that question because I have never earned a scratch off ticket due to not having a successful personal recruit during the time frame. So, Deanna has the honor of being the first scratch off ticket winner for the Cloud Climbers. 😊 But wait! There's more!! Because Stacie was added to Deanna's team during my race to earn the entire $1,500 in Bonus Money for making Bronze Leader, (it's official now, since I received my pin 😉), Deanna will also receive $50 from me in the incentive I put out for that time frame. Deanna, I'll be getting that check in the mail to you this week.

So....what is happening in your life that we need to celebrate? It does not have to be Avon related, just something you want to "Be proud out loud" about for yourself or your family, or maybe a special need you would like for us to pray about. Also, I'm always looking for people to Spotlight in the newsletter, so if you have never been in the Spotlight, please share some details about yourself so we can get to know you better.

I'm off to sort a bunch of Avon products, because the fundraiser has arrived. I'm betting that none of you will beat my sales for C12, but I would certainly be excited and grateful (for you and me) if you did!! 😍

I had 18 orders over $20 in Campaign 10 and I promised to give away one A Box for every 10 orders over $20, so I have one A Box to give away.

Since I have a bunch of A Boxes, I will be doing another challenge soon, so be sure to always read these reminders to see how to win those special boxes.

ere are some of the best buys that I spotted in the brochure:

Now's the Time, Because you get $25 FREE!!

Have you been waffling about starting your own Avon business? Have you been holding back waiting on a better offer to come along? Well, have we ever got a sweet deal for you! From now until May 29, 2018, qualified new Avon Representatives can earn a $25 credit to use toward purchases on youravon.com (the website where we place our orders), when they purchase either the $50 Advanced or $100 Premium Starter Kit. 

To qualify to earn in this incentive, new Reps must place a minimum $150 order and pay for it by the end of Campaign 13 (June 12). When that happens, Avon will credit their account with $25 on June 27th. Then when the Rep places an order in Campaigns 15, 16, or 17, the $25 will be applied to that order. Since the Advanced Starter Kit and the Premium Starter Kit are valued at way above their cost, this is an amazing deal! 

So...are you ready to quit waffling and start earning? Read more about the Avon business here and go here to get started before May 29. (Or just click on these sweet waffles.)

Campaign 10 Newsletter for My Cloud Climbers Team

Greetings!

Well, we did it, Cloud Climbers! A very big THANK YOU!! to all of you who came through for me and made sure that our team met its goal of having $8K in team sales for four campaigns and thereby earning me the complete bonus of $1,500 for moving up to Bronze Leader. Sophya Johnson will be especially grateful, because she is the winner of the $100 that I promised to one of you who had orders in C7, C8, and C9. We ended up with 23 people in the drawing for that money (I listed them in the last newsletter) and I used a random number generator to select the winner. Congratulations, Sophya! Your $100 check will be in the mail today. This is going to be a big year for our team, so always read the newsletter to see what other incentives I might decide to do. In fact, I have a new one for you right now and you will find the details further down in the newsletter.

Top Ten in Sales for C10   (There were 48 orders turned in, for a total in team sales of $8,928.)

 1. Sandra Moore  HS   $2,563
 2. Leslie Clendenon   $517    (Way to go, Leslie! You are President's Club material. 😊)
 3. Anna Kinsaul   $352
 4. Phyllis Smith   $332
 5. Deanna Buswell   $305
 6. Judith Lea   $299
 7. Rene Parker  PC   $277
 8. Stephanie Renshaw   $252
 9. Joanne Bradford   $234
10. Gladys Faulk

Happy Birthday in May to: Margaret McCrary (5/5), Julie Thomas (5/5), Donna Langford (5/6), Ruby Nunnery (5/20), and Steffanie Erdelt (5/27). Celebrating Avon Anniversaries this month are: Melanie Hamilton (1 year on 5/9), Maria Loza (7 years on 5/9), Yvonne Lassiter (17 years on 5/19), Darren Mannahan (6 years on 5/19), Autumn Lange (4 years on 5/28), Rebecca Robertson (2 years on 5/28), and Kathy McAlpin (2 years on 5/31). 

In the Spotlight this campaign is our newest Cloud Climber, Delilah Carter of Double Springs, AL. Delilah was happy to share some of her story so we all could get to know her a bit. She tried to sell Avon 4-5 years ago but she was a single parent and unemployed student and was not able to invest in the business enough to be successful at that time. She received her medical coder degree and worked for a time in Alaska. With her five children, ages 21-40, being now grown and gone, she has returned to Double Springs, AL, and is living with and helping to care for her disabled Mum. She is blessed to have 8 grandchildren as well. Delilah enjoys Bible study and makes Bible study with others a priority for her life. She believes Avon is her vehicle to receive God's monetary blessings that will allow her to help make more followers of God and she is also looking into other ways of increasing her income. She closed her comments with "God is blessing me already. Now I see He is ready to bless me more." 

I have not been personally talking with all new representatives as they prepare to turn in their first orders to be sure that they understand the goals in the KickStart program, because I didn't want to be "pushy". There is a fine line between mentoring and pushing and I've been too cautious in this area and that may have been to the detriment of the new Cloud Climbers' businesses. If you are just beginning to work with team members, know what their goals are in the KickStart program and make sure that they know what those goals are as well. I'm attaching two documents on KickStart for the benefit of those of you that mentor and new CCs. These documents are found under Sales Leadership/Mentor Tools on YA.

Okay, here's the new incentive from me that I mentioned earlier in the newsletter. While I was outside mowing recently (while you are mowing is a good brainstorming time if you haven't tried it), I was trying to think of ways to motivate you to press forward with your businesses and how I could go about attaching a reward for that. This idea will work for everyone, and everyone can earn money from me because it is a "You Do, You Get" incentive rather than a drawing where only one person wins. You have to EARN this money, but you get to decide how you will do it. 😊 Here's the deal: During the month of May you must meet a challenge goal that you have set for yourself and told me and one other person about. It must be a challenge goal, not something you are already doing. Below are a few examples of goals you might choose from, but it does not have to be one of these, as you just choose the goal and then tell me and one other person what goal you have set. We are doing this on the honor system, but you must tell me the goal, tell me the name of the person you told about the goal, and then tell me when the goal is completed. If you meet all of these requirements, I will give you $20. I wish I could give more, but I have faith that many of you will make goals and meet them and I don't want to go broke if all 86 of you accomplish this feat!

Examples of challenge goals: "I will personally talk to 10 new people about my business in the month of May with the intent to either gain them as customers or as new team members."  "I will post a link to my online store with a personal comment of interest to my friends about the Avon products, opportunity, recommendations, etc. at least twice a week for the month of May on my Facebook profile and I will include my online store link in that post." "I will increase my order size by at least $50 for each of Campaigns 11 and 12." "I will go through the contacts on my phone and call or text everyone who might not yet know that I am an Avon Representative to give them my online store link." As you can see, there are many different types of challenges you can set for yourself, but whatever you choose must require you to step outside your comfort zone. Do a little brainstorming and see what you can come up with. I'm excited to hear your ideas!

The weather is perfect for getting out and about with Avon brochures and orders in hand, so that is what I am about to do. I hope you each have a great rest of the week! Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that I will be on a short mission trip to Kentucky this weekend. I'll still be reachable in the usual ways, but it may take me longer to respond to you at times, so just be patient with me. 😊
