Are you gearing up for the 4th of July? I'll be spending it my usual way, gathered with the church for a picnic on our parking lot and to watch the fireworks show produced by the city of Madison, Alabama. Someone had the idea a few years ago to invite everyone to bring food and picnic in the afternoon before watching the fireworks, since we have such a good view from our parking lot, and it has grown to be a major all church gathering. I'm not going to pray that it doesn't rain, though, because we need rain here so badly I'll be happy to have some whenever it comes.
In case you haven't seen it yet, (look on YA under "Fabulous 4th Rewards for Everyone") we have a new Direct Delivery order incentive for July 2 through 9. When your customers place orders of $100 or more, you will earn the new Far Away Infinity fragrance for women. Speaking of DD Orders, congratulations to four Cloud Climbers who had them in C14: Paige Coffman, Charisse Felton, Rene Parker, and Darren Mannahan. I also had a few, and earned the last incentive before I even knew there was one! I believe I have suggested before that when you earn these incentives you can either use them yourself or offer them at a discount for your customers. You might also use them in a giveaway to encourage orders, such as telling customers they will gain an entry into a drawing for the product if they have an order of $20 or more within a campaign. Can you think of other ways to use free incentive products from Avon to build your business?

You may recall a few newsletters back that I told you the "long timer" Cloud Climbers might soon be out-shown by some of our "newbies." Well, on this list of Top Ten in Sales for C14, 7 out of 10 of them have only been selling for 5 campaigns or less. I'm happy for all my Cloud Climbers to do well, but seeing new representatives get off to a great start is especially gratifying, because I know that building a business takes a lot of hard work. Way to go "newbies!" Keep up the good work and you will go far.

In The Spotlight this campaign is Pam Jones. Pam says she is excitedly waiting for the arrival of her kit and has already contacted many friends on Facebook to let them know she is a representative and give them a link to her eStore. Pam is the proud mother of one 37 year old son and is Nanny to her 10 year old granddaughter. She says she also has three grand girls who have adopted her as their Nanny, so she must be a very special lady for them to think that much of her. Pam runs a small alterations business in her home and works part time as a caregiver to a precious 92 year old lady. In her spare time she quilts and crochets, and donates most of her crocheted items to cancer treatment centers for chemo patients. Wow! Pam is a very busy lady, but busy ladies make great Avon Ladies.
So, who is ready to be spotlighted in the next newsletter? I need volunteers! I know people like to talk about themselves, and now is your chance to share a bit about your life. :)
Let me know if you are ready to add people to your own Avon team. Shana Fuller (my DSM), knows that I need a Silver Ambassador and she is ready to help when one of you in District 1139 is ready to start building, but we need to hear from you. If you are not in D1139, I feel certain the DSM in your district will be willing to help you as well, and you know I will.
Have a happy 4th of July !!
