Let's start with the special notification and get that out of the way in case some of you stop reading after the first paragraph. If you are in our Facebook group for the team, you may have already seen the video that I did about this yesterday. Dee Power, my coach and the coach for many of you as well, has challenged a few of us in Leadership to increase our order count for the next four campaigns. It's a challenge that several other coaches in the southeast region are also participating in, because the west region is far surpassing the southeast region in order count right now and that just will not do! Our team is actually doing the best for Dee's challenge participants, since we had 53% activity in Campaign 24 with 41 out of 76 Cloud Climbers placing orders. Keep up the good work, because our challenge goal for Campaign 25 is 60% activity! In order to encourage those who have not been placing orders regularly to get orders turned in this campaign, I'll be reaching out to you a couple of extra times in each campaign to let you know how we are doing. I will also be contacting those who have not yet placed orders to encourage them to do so. What's in this for you? Well, first of all, the satisfaction of knowing you helped our team make its goal. Second, the money that you will earn by encouraging your customers to place orders! And third, if we make our goal of 60% activity in Campaign 25, I'll put the names of all who placed orders into a drawing for some cold, hard, cash!! You see, when we make our $8 goal, like we did in Campaign 24, I have extra money to give away.
Recognition: Congratulations to Leslie Clendenon PC for making President's Club in Campaign 24 and (re)guaranteeing herself 40% earnings on all beauty products and 25% earnings on fashion & home products for all of 2020! Congratulations to the entire team and thanks so much to all 41 of you who had orders in Campaign 24, for helping us make the $8,000 goal for our team. Granted that a big chunk of that was because of my fall fundraiser sales, but we still could not have made it without all those orders that were turned in by the 41 CCs that had orders. You are SOOO appreciated by me!!!

Be sure to make use of the customer reminder that I sent you earlier this week to encourage your customers to place orders. We all need reminders quite often, and your customers do as well. There have been many times that I've had customers tell me "I just let the date slip by me", even with reminders and I tell them to tell me what they need even if the date has slipped by and I'll get it. Sometimes I use my online store to order right away and sometimes they are willing to wait on the next order. Be sure to tell them in your reminder (whether it is email, phone, text, Messenger, or in person) that we can only go back one campaign for back orders now so they will realize the importance of getting their orders in on time. Consistent contact, is the key to getting those orders!
Avon's biggest brochure of the year has arrived! Most of our Christmas offerings are in this brochure, so don't delay in ordering as some items may sell out early. You have two choices for shopping - either for my delivery or for direct delivery from Avon. Even if you plan to order for my delivery, you will want to go to my online store and click on the big red bow to see some special offers, including a sweepstakes you can enter. There will be 100 winners, and I would love for YOU to be one of them!
Pg. 9, Surprise! Avon put The A Boxin the front of the brochure this campaign in addition to on the back cover. This one is all about Classic Glam with 4 full size products (total value is $40) for only $10 with your $40 purchase. Take a look at the box cover, because it features a gift set Avon sold many years ago.
Pg. 11, The Limited Edition Iconic Avon Lipsticks are back again this year with all new shades and packaging. So gorgeous and only $9 each! Don't miss the vintage 1967 ad featured on the opposite page, because some of you may have seen the items featured there in your youth. I recall very well the Topaz sachet jar just to the left of center at the bottom of the picture, because my mama had one. The travel size fragrance to the right of it looks very familiar too, and I believe it had a roll-on type top.
Pg. 21, Woo hoo! The 5-piece sets of Holiday Hand Creams and Lip Balms have arrived. The items can be purchased individually, but you get the best deal when you purchase the sets for $8 each. Great for stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, to hand out little goodies to your "besties" or your co-workers, or for holiday gathering hostess gifts. My personal way of using these is to put a bunch of them in cute baskets and take them to my family Christmas gatherings for everyone to pass around and grab one or two. Even some of the guys pick lip balms!
Pgs. 22/23, These Skin So Soft sets feature fragrances (Winter Lavender or Wintersoft) only available at this time of year. Each $15 set contains Body Wash, Hand Cream, and Body Butter, and they make lovely hostess gifts or gifts for special friends. Of course, you can always treat yourself, too!
Pg. 24, Limited Edition Dopp Kits for the men in your life in two classic best selling scents - Black Suede and Wild Country - for only $22 each. These good sized bags will hold the three products included plus a whole lot more essentials for men.
Pg. 26, Have you seen those new Silicone rings that are appearing on fingers across the country right now? I just became aware of them recently and I see that we have a black one for men right now. The price is much better than some prices I've seen - only $9.99 - and it is available in 5 sizes. These rings are great for men who lead a very active lifestyle or work with their hands in ways that could damage metal rings.
Pgs. 14-15, 28-37, 44-45, and more. Jewelry, jewelry, jewelry! Some of it has that holiday vibe, while other pieces are wearable all year. There are gift sets and their are single pieces, and most are priced under $20.
Pg. 101-105, Anew Clinical Skin Care items are any 2 for $42.
Pg. 119, Glimmersticks are any 3 for $10, so time to stock up!
Pgs. 126-130, Magix Tint, Magix Prime, Magix Wand, Makeup Brushes, Contour Stick, Pressed Powder, Cream to Powder Foundation, Highlighting Powder and Stick, Dazzle Drops, and various Blushes are all Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price.
Pgs. 139-143, All the Far Away, Haiku, Imari, and Rare fragrances are $13.99 each.
Pg. 178, You can now buy your Toothpaste and Toothbrushes from Avon! I'm hearing some really good reports on the Blanc Charcoal Toothpaste. By the way, if you are worried about a black toothpaste, don't be. This one is "blanc" meaning that it is white.
Pg. 179, Speaking of perfect hostess gifts, Avon's Veilment Natural Spa Collection has three beautiful variations - Black Rose, Dead Sea Salt, and Himalaya Pink Salt. Any one of them would add a touch of beauty to the bathroom decor and the large pump bottles are only $12 each. I've been using Black Rose and can verify that a little goes a long way, so these bottles will last awhile.
Pg. 185, CHI Essentials have arrived! CHI is a professional hair care leader and we have partnered with them to bring you a unique blend of certified organic botanicals for healthy-looking hair that is sulfate and PABA-free. Four products unique to Avon that are suitable for every skin type.
Last, but certainly not least, starting on Pg. 210 you will find all the Avon x The Face Shop Collaboration products. Please study these pages and learn more about these Korean beauty products that have been around for a long time but have just come to Avon with our purchase by LG H&H. Remember that we have a 90 day guarantee, so don't be afraid to try something new and return it if you aren't satisfied.
There are oh so many more products that I would love to talk about, but it is time to move on so I'll just let you shop the brochure's 227 pages to see what else we are offering for Christmas and beyond.
Avon Bronze Leader
p.s. It is not too late to open your own Avon account and purchase all these items at a 40% discount, even if you are only ordering for yourself. Go here to learn more and get started.
I''m getting the Campaign 22 Newsletter out before the end of Campaign 23. Yay, me!!! Ha! Life and obligations have slowed down just a little bit, so I've just about got my business obligations all back on schedule. I'm enjoying fall, have dedicated myself to eating less sugar and getting more exercise (I actually charged up my Fitbit and I'm wearing it) and now that I've told you that about the less sugar and more exercise, you can be my accountability partners and just bug me now and then to say "Are you still on track?" Maybe by Thanksgiving I will have finally lost these few extra pounds that I carry in my midsection and be able to look decent in the clothes hanging in my closet that I avoid wearing now. I was listening to a Prager U Candice Owens interview yesterday and one thing that was said really stuck with me because it is so true. "Your life is your fault." We all need to take responsibility for our own lives and do the hard things that need to be done to get them where they need to be. That quote is true for our businesses, too. We all have different circumstances, but what we do with our circumstances is our responsibility/fault. Speaking of which, please read what Lydia Riley (https://www.facebook.com/lydia.riley.3517563) wrote yesterday about her Avon story. She has done some pretty amazing things in the past 19 years because of Avon, and you don't have to be at rock bottom, like she was, in order to build big. You just have to take responsibility (if building big is what you want and need) and do the hard things to get you where you want to be.

Don't forget that we now have until the end of the year, so basically through Campaign 2, to make our goals. That means six more campaigns to go and it means there is just a slim possibility that I'll hit Rose Circle again but that the top four Cloud Climbers listed above should definitely make President's Club this year!!
There are currently three Cloud Climbers who have team members, and they are: Leslie Clendenon with three team members, Rene Parker with one team member, and Margo Prytz with three team members. Our newest addition is a recruit of Margo's, and we welcome Andrea Gholar of Justice, IL, to the Cloud Climbers!
When I sent out the Customer Reminder for C23, I said that anyone who told me "I used the email, so put me in the drawing" would go into a drawing for a surprise from me. I was hoping to hear from at least a few of you, and I did get one "Thank you", but no one said they used the information in the email, so nobody went in the drawing. I sure hope that doesn't mean that nobody even reads my emails.😭 The campaign is not over yet, so maybe I'll still hear from someone yet and get to give something away.
I'm going to drink an Espira Plant Power Protein shake and get back outside and enjoy some of this beautiful weather. I've only got 3,616 steps in so far, so I need to join my daughter in what she calls a "joggerwalkie". Have a great evening!
I hope you are all enjoying your day. I'll be turning in my C23 order tomorrow night after 8:00, so let me know what you need in whatever way you prefer. Here are some of the best buys I picked from the C23 brochure:
Pg. 35, NEW Anew Hydra Fusion Snow Cream is a fantastic moisturizer with a truly unique texture that locks in moisture. It can be used after one of the Hydra Fusion Serums or alone, and the price is $18.99.
Pg. 43, Always a Best Buy, the Anew Ultimate and Anew Platinum 4-piece boxed kits are only $55 AND they come with a free matching cleanser.
Pg. 47, Anew Vitale products are $21.99 each. These are great for all ages, but particularly suitable for those who are younger and just beginning to take care of their skin. You'll see pores vanish and tired skin re-energized in just a week or two.
Pg. 71, Glimmersticks are $3.99 each. These self-sharpening liners for brows, eyes, and lips are quick and convenient to use and come in a wide range of shades for every need.
Pg. 100, Honey Blossom in the full-size spray and the travel spray are both for $23. This softly scented spray is perfect if you prefer to carry spring and summer into your winter.
Pg. 105, ATTENTION! Soft Musk Cologne came back to the Classic Fragrances collection for awhile, but it is leaving soon. In fact, it is only available as long as the supply lasts, so get it now for $9.99.
Pgs. 106/107, It's time to start thinking about the stocking stuffers or the smaller gifts for teachers. We've got Shower Gels, Hair & Body Washes, Body Lotions, Perfumed Skin Softeners, Soap-on-a-Rope for Him, and TSA-friendly Travel Sprays - Buy 1, Get 1 Free!!
Pg. 109, We'll soon have gift sets of fragrances for him or her, but you can make your own gift set of True Gentitems while you get all 3 (Eau de Toilette, Hair & Body Wash, and After Shave Conditioner) for $24. This is a very comforting and masculine scent that customers are loving.
Pg. 140, The Lip Balms are $1.29 each, and they won't go lower. You know you need a few to get you through the winter, so you might as well go ahead and add them to your order. 🙂
Pg. 143, I highly recommend the Avon Kids products, and we've added a new one - Shape Shifter Shapeable Soap - for $7.99. This is perfect for boys or girls and might keep them in the tub just a little bit longer. Don't miss the sale prices on Superfoam Body Wash and Bubble Trouble Bubble Bath, because they are only $3.99. Wow!
If you have already received your Campaign 24 brochure, you might have noticed the new products on pages 210 through the end of the brochure. I purchased many of these products to try so I could let you know my personal experience with them, and I did an application video on my Facebook page that you might be interested in viewing. You can do that through this link: https://www.facebook.com/sandramooreavonlady/videos/449922102292620/
Special offer: Many people have opened Avon accounts just to get the discount for themselves, especially during Christmas shopping time. To do that, you simply go to my online store (smoore.avonrepresentative.com) and click on Become a Representative. The cost is $30, but you get to choose from 3 different free gift packages worth more than $30. If you just want products for yourself, I recommend one of the first 2 packages. Then you can place one or two orders before Christmas at a discount and be done with the business if you so choose, or you may have enough fun that you keep going for years and make some good money. Please contact me if you are intrigued but have more questions about this.
(This is the Newsletter that I send to my team to let them know how the team is doing. I'd be happy to send it to you, as well, when you are ready to be mentored by me as one of my Cloud Climbers! Just go to smoore.avonrepresentative.com and click on "Become a Representative" to get started.)
Let me begin by apologizing for sending the customer reminder for C20 to you without doing it as blind copies. It has been a long time since I've made that mistake, because I generally double check before sending, but I must have gotten in a hurry that day. I didn't notice my mistake until I got ready to tweak the reminder to send to my own customers. I appreciate the fact that none of you complained to me about it. 🙂
