My Team Newsletter for Campaign 17


RepFest 2017 was a wonderful experience! I don't know if I'll ever attend another Avon convention, because I'm not a great fan of flying or expending large amounts of money on trips that require plane tickets, but I'm truly glad that this one was close by and I was able to attend. I had enough Avon points to cover the registration fee, I had a couple of roommates so we were able to share the expense, and my riders helped cover the cost of gas, so all in all the trip wasn't too expensive at all and well worth the cost. You can all share in the experience for only $10 plus your gas by attending RepFest at the Movies this Saturday, August 19, in Hoover, Alabama, and you will get a swag bag worth $73!! Here is the link to register: You can bring a friend, so bring your husband or wife or someone who is considering starting their own Avon business. The friend pays $10 and receives a swag bag as well. I'd take a car load of you myself, but I am running too far behind on my work so I'm going to skip it and leave my seat for someone who didn't get to go to RepFest. The thing we learned about at RepFest that excites me the most is the "espira" line of nutritional supplements coming in 2018. They will launch in January, I believe, at the perfect time to help our businesses most. Avon wants to concentrate on the holiday selling season during 4th Quarter and introduce "espira" in 1st Quarter - the time of year when more people start concentrating on improving their health than at any other time.

Two days before leaving for RepFest, the 35 Nested Representatives I earned in the Lead to Achieve challenge were added to my team, so I want to introduce all of them.  I'm excited to see that some of my Nested Reps. are on the top ten lists below. The Lead to Achieve incentive was a great blessing to my business and I am certainly thankful. If any of you, new, old, or nested, need anything from me, please know that I am only a phone call or text away - 256-479-4061

As you can tell from this list, Avon gave us people who lived in our general area when they could so it would be easier if we ever want to get together for meetings, events, etc. Speaking of meetings, I am going to have a Virtual Opportunity Meeting on my Facebook business page on Monday, August 28. The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., so even those who are working can participate. I have not done an event like this before, so it will be a learning experience for me. If you are on Facebook and we are not already Facebook friends, please go to and send me a friend request so I can add you to our Cloud Climbers Avon Team page. Then I will also be able to invite you to participate in the Opportunity Meeting and you can invite your friends. You never know who might be interested in joining you in your Avon journey, so don't make decisions for your friends. Invite them and let them decide whether or not to attend to learn more. I will make it very clear that anyone who becomes a Representative after attending the event at your invitation needs to put your code in as the Reference Code so that they are added to your team. I have plenty of people on my First Generation, so I want them to be on your First Generation, not mine. That will be of greater benefit to me in the long run, so please trust that I am not going to be grabbing your recruits and invite, Invite, INVITE! I'll be launching the event later this week so that people have plenty of time to see it and accept invitations. On the day of the event I will start with a live video welcoming everyone and then I'll post bits and pieces of information about the Avon business opportunity all day long. There will be a door prize of Avon products for one attendee, but I'm not sure how I'll be determining how people enter the drawing yet.

These six Cloud Climbers had Direct Delivery orders placed at their Online Stores in C17: Sandra MooreDarren MannahanAnna KinsaulMelanie HamiltonBarbie Breen, and Alison Hogan. Six out of ninety-nine team members is not a high percentage, so I suspect that many of you still don't have your Online Stores set up or perhaps you haven't been sharing your link. As you can see below my signature, I share my link on almost every email I send out, only removing it when I feel it is not appropriate. I also share it a lot on my Facebook business page, I include it in my email reminders to my customers, and it is on every brochure I hand out. Just this week I posted on a page about the Sweepstakes that is always on our personal Online Stores that we and our customers can enter and a Representative said she didn't know anything about the sweepstakes because she didn't have her Online Store set up. The reason she didn't have it set up is because she didn't know how to do so. I also heard from one of our Cloud Climbers that she needed my help in setting up her Online Store, but she really didn't need my help once I told her to just go to and look for her Web Office and she could find the info there. If you don't have yours set up, go to Web Office and then click on the pink square in the very center of the screen to set it up. It only takes a couple of minutes, because Avon already takes care of keeping the information there current. Please take an extra 10-15 minutes to personalize your Online Store so that your customers will know it is you they are shopping with and then start sharing your link. You cannot wait for people to find your Online Store, YOU must share your link. 

I won't do a Spotlight with this newsletter since I don't want it to become too long. Nested Reps, if you will provide me with just a little information about yourself and your goals and dreams/why you are an Avon Representative, I will be happy to Spotlight you in an upcoming newsletter. For most of us this is our order day for C18, so I hope you are getting ready to turn your order in before midnight. If it isn't where you want it to be to meet your goals, get on the phone or send out another email reminder! Don't let the day slip away without making money that you could have made if you had just asked.

You and your business are in my prayers. Have a great rest of the week!

Best Buys of the C18 Brochure - and Introducing the A Box!

(My reminder for my customers, highlighting some of the best buys of the brochure.) 


The past 10 days have been crazy busy and my brain has had to move in so many different directions that I sometimes feel like I am just circling from one thing to another. I had a wonderful time at Avon's RepFest 2017 at the Opryland Convention Center last weekend and will have exciting news to share about "espira" later, but that plus having two extra cats (our son's - one of which was lost for two days while I was gone and thought to be hawk meat for awhile but then found safely at a neighbor's house upon my return) in addition to our own two, a son who is moving into his first home, the funeral for our sweet little Eli Williams (12 year old boy from our church who died from brain cancer) on Friday, and activities with my other business (essential oils and you can ask me if you want more details on that), working on our FHU Associates Fall Market event coming up in September (we still need more craft vendors if you know of some good ones), plus a coaching program with Avon that I am currently a part of to help me become a better mentor for my team of 111 representatives (I just earned 35 of them in an Avon incentive!), all of the above combined with trying to run our household and take care of my normal Avon business activities has been a bit overwhelming. Therefore, I have not been able to get all of the C18 brochures out that I wanted to get delivered and I still have a few C17 orders to deliver. I hope to get caught up this week and be able to focus better. For now, if you did not get a C18 brochure you can view one by clicking here and then let me know what you need or just go ahead and put your order in at my Online Store and choose Representative delivery. When you do that your order comes into my cart and can be submitted tomorrow night with my other orders. Be sure not to miss The A Box, because it is a great deal for only $10 with your $40 purchase. If the georgous fall colors are not right for you, the box would make a great gift for a daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc.

Some of the best buys of the C18 brochure include:

  • Pg. 9, SSS Bath Oil, 16.9 fl. oz. size, is $10.99 and 25 fl. oz. size is $15.99. Both of these are at the Lowest Price This Year.
  • Pg. 13, SSS Bonus-Size Body Lotions with pumps are $10.99, which is also the LPTY.
  • Pg. 15, SSS DD Body Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (our only body lotion that contains SPF), is only $7.99. You get our Age-Defying Complex AND sunscreen in this product!
  • Pg. 23, Naturals Shower Gels, Lotions, and Body Sprays are all Buy 2, Get 2 Free.
  • Pg. 27, FootWorks Lavender 3-in-1 Pampering Oil is only $3.99. We received a bottle of this free at RepFest and I used it that night. Smoother feet and smoother sleep.
  • Pg. 29, NEW FootWorks Ginger & White Tea Collection - Scrub, Clay Mask, and Nourishing Cream - each one only $4.99.
  • Pg. 37, Sun damaged hair? Too much chemical treatment? Reconstruction 7 Intense Recovery Mask is only $4.99.
  • Pg. 39, Anew Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Cream is only $34.99. It's our most luxurious night creme!
  • Pg. 41, Here's a surprise -  Anew Ultimate Day Cream, Night Cream, and Eye Cream for only $60!! 
  • Pg. 51, I understand that the Brightening Sheet Mask and the Firming Sheet Mask will be discontinued soon, which explains why they are currently only $10 for a set of 4. Almost 70% off of the regular price!
  • Pg. 61, Vitamin C Brightening Serum is LPTY of $21.99. Many Representatives were raving about how much they loved this product at RepFest 2017. 
  • Pg. 73, True Color Flawless Liquid Foundation, with medium to full coverage, only $8.99. 
  • Pg. 81, True Color Flawless Loose Powder or Mattifying Pressed Powder are each $8.99. Add the Pro Powder Brush for $9.99 to get a soft, even finish.
  • Pg. 84, SuperExtend Winged Out Mascara and SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara are each only $5.99. 
  • Pg. 103, Beyond Color Liostick and Lip Conditioner are each $5.99, LPTY. I highly recommend the shade Twig, which has been a best seller since it was introduced many years ago.
  • Pg. 104, Makeup Setting Spray ($9.99) also gets good reviews from Avon Reps and their customers. You just spritz a bit on after you finish your makeup to set it and forget it all day long.
  • Pg. 125, NEW "Be" fragrances. Three fragrances to match whatever mood you are in, either worn alone or together since they compliment each other. Intro special of $12.99.
  • Pg. 127, the Far Away fragrances are each only $12.99. Far Away has long been an Avon best seller and there is a scent spot on the page. 
  • Pg. 135, the Classic fragrances are LPTY of $8.99. Don't forget that Soft Musk has returned to this collection by popular demand.
  • Pg. 219 & the Back Cover. You certainly don't want to miss the A Box, which is only $10 with your $40 purchase. This $40 value features the Divine Wine Collection - a Fall Beauty Trend.
Thanks so very much for your continued support of my business. It really means a lot to me. If you know of other people who might be interested in ordering, please forward this email to them. When they shop at my Online Store they can choose to have orders shipped directly to themselves if they live outside of my delivery area.

C16 Avon Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter

(My newsletter for my wonderful Cloud Climbers team! Take a look to see what we are up to right now.) 

Greetings, Cloud Climbers!

It's still Tuesday, right? I know that it must be, because I mentioned in one of my videos done for you on the Cloud Climbers Team Facebook page that I would have the newsletter out by Tuesday and I'm just now getting it out. 😉 I hope everyone is having a great week and no one has had their air conditioners go out this summer. Have I mentioned that we had to replace both of our home HVAC units this spring? One in April and the other in May. That really hurt the old bank account! I'm just thankful we had the funds to take care of them both and didn't have to stay hot for long.

RepFest 2017 is almost upon us and I'm happy to see that two of you, Ramona Hyman and Tisha Johnson, are registered to attend the event. If any more of you have registered, please let me know. I've got my room reserved and my three roommates arranged, now I have to figure out the food I'm going to take along to survive the three days! Ha! Avon offered box lunches for us to purchase to make things easy, but they were $20 each so I didn't buy them. I understand that eating in the convention center is very expensive and getting from where the activities are happening to where the food is sold during the time alloted can be challenging too. Mostly I'm planning to eat a lot of nuts, fruit, raw veggies, meal bars, etc., that I can fit into whatever bag I decide to tote around  with me. I qualified for the Go Country! Win big! incentive at the second level, which means I get to attend a party to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Wild Country. I think there will be food there, so that meal will be covered by Avon. 

Speaking of the Wild Country Anniversary, here is a sneak peek at a product coming up soon. I'm excited about this because I think it will sell well and I have a family history with a grandfather in West Virginia who collected Avon bottles back in the day. I inherited a lot of his bottles and this offering brings back some good memories.
