Legendary Product - Avon Skin So Soft

When we say this is a Legendary Product, we speak truth! The product line began with Skin-So-Soft Original Oil and there is hardly a person in America over the age of 30 who is not familiar with that product. You can even do an internet search and find lists like: 100 Ways to Use Avon Skin So Soft. 

Many other products have been added to the SSS line through the years, including my favorite scent and formula, Supreme Nourishment with Macademia Nut Oil, and the scent especially designed for summer - Aqua Express.

Excitement is in the Air!

Yes, these are exciting times, my friends! As mentioned in my last post, I celebrated my 30th Avon Anniversary earlier this week. In my 31st year I continue to learn new and better ways to build my business, Avon continues to come out with new and better products, my team is growing and it is a privilege to be able to help them do so, and sometimes (like today!) I just get so excited about the possibilities and my plans, all the things that I want to do during the next 30 years, that I find I just can't move fast enough to keep up with myself!! Ha! 

Maybe the reason I am sitting here with a smile on my face is that I have finished the taxes for us, our daughter, and our son for yet another year and it just feels so good to have all of that out of the way. Or maybe the reason is that I just listened to a webinar with another Avon representative who shared wonderful information to help me build my online eStore sales. Or maybe the reason is that I have the Avon order for my own customers as well as the Avon order for the fundraiser I do every spring coming in later today. I try to plan those so that they don't come in on the same day, but I think I might have miscalculated this time. If that is why I am smiling, it's because "sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying." Nah. I've handled that much product all at once before and I know I can do it again. It will make for a busy weekend though.

Speaking of the weekend, this one is going to be warm and beautiful, so the little kiddos I know will be able to enjoy all their Easter egg hunts and fun with the family without worrying about rain interfering. Maybe I have this big smile on my face because I'm thinking about all the fun they will have and how some of them will share that fun with me in my Sunday morning class.

Or maybe the reason I'm grinning so big is that I have wonderful local customers who keep me busy delivering and wonderful online customers who keep me from being too busy delivering. Or maybe it's because I have so much fun doing what I do every day and I'm blessed beyond measure to be able to work from home in this business.

Whatever the reason, I'm just smiling and smiling as I type. I hope that you have reason to smile too, and if you don't, I hope that you will count your blessings and find reason to do so! God is good, all the time!!

Happy 30th Avon Anniversary to Me!

Today, April 10th, I am celebrating the completion of 30 years as an Avon Representative. It has been a time of many blessings, both monetarily and the blessing of many friends and relationships I have developed through those 30 years. Some of those customers who became friends, including two so far this year, have already passed on from this life, as is to be expected when you have been in the business for 30 years. When I began my Avon business, one of the main purposes I had for becoming an Avon Lady was to be able to reach out and make a difference for good in the lives of my neighbors. I hope that I have been able to do that, and that I will be able to continue to do that for many more years.

As I think back over the years, I lot of memories come to me. I remember that in the early years I would only leave home for up to 2 hours at a time to work with my business because I had a baby at home who needed me to only be gone for that long. I also recall pushing that baby, Bonny, in her umbrella stroller from door to door as I met my neighbors and introduced myself. Avon Representatives were assigned territories then, so I knew what area was mine to work and I worked it pretty well. Now, with many more women working and with the advent of the internet, no representative is limited in the area where she or he can work their business. Most of us do, of course, try to be respectful of each other and not "steal" customers. Of course, we also say that "If you are serving your customers well, they will be loyal to you and no other representative can steal them, so you don't have to worry if someone new leaves a book with your customer." That is very true, and I do try to serve my customers well.

Another memory that comes to me is of the time my family and I were vacationing in Gatlinburg and I was attempting to turn in my regularly scheduled Avon order. I had never missed a campaign order (I still haven't!), and I had no intention of not turning one in while on that trip. At that time I was one of several representatives using a small hand held unit called a POET (Personal Order Entry Terminal) to enter and place our orders. This was prior to when we began to order by internet. I did not expect to have any problem placing my order, because all I needed to do was connect the POET to a phone line (detach line from handset and attach to POET), and then push a button on the POET that would dial Avon and place the order automatically. Low and behold, I could not find a place anywhere in Gatlinburg where you could attach a phone line to the terminal and do a direct dial. Every single place I tried required that you "Dial 9" to get an outside line. (Do you remember those days before cell phones when you did that with landlines in the hospital, a hotel, in some offices, etc?) I was beginning to think I was going to have to knock on the door of a random house and try to explain to someone that I needed to use their phone line but it would only take a minute and cost them nothing. I was finally able to drive to a city nearby and find a church building or funeral home or some such place to get my order placed, and I never got myself into that situation again! 

There are a lot of other stories I could tell, but I'll stop with that one, because I have another order due tomorrow and I need to get back to work. To celebrate my anniversary, I have offered my local delivery customers a free gift with their purchase of any size during this campaign. That's right, I'm celebrating my 30th anniversary by giving gifts to others!  That's just one more way to make a difference for good in the lives of my customers, and I know it will put smiles on their faces and on mine. Onward to the next 30 years! ;)

For the Shower and Beyond!

There are few people in the country who are not familiar with classic Avon fragrances, because Avon has been a household name for many years. There may be more than a few, however, who are unfamiliar with the Avon bath & body line called "Avon Senses." This line started out as "Avon Naturals" and the name was changed a year or two ago. The fragrances are inspired by plants and many are combinations of a couple of plant fragrances - such as the top selling Cucumber Melon combo. Here are the products offered, but not all the fragrances are shown. Click on any image in this post to see them all, read customer reviews, product information, and to order.

Watch for other fragrances to be introduced at various seasons of the year, along with specially priced gift sets!

Best Buys of the Campaign 8 Brochure

When I say "best buys of the Campaign 8 brochure" I know that is a relative statement, because there is no way I have time to list ALL of the best buys. What I list are generally makeup, skin care, fragrance, and bath & body products, so I don't even include all the wonderful jewelry, clothing, and household items that we have in the brochure and in the Avon Living magalog, not to mention the entire mark. catalog, the Outlet, etc., etc. If your favorite products are listed here, be sure to take a look at the online brochure to see if they are on sale this campaign as well.

Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter for C5 and C6

(Sharing the newsletter I write for my team, the Cloud Climbers.)

Wow, y'all! I knew I was running behind on this newsletter, but I thought I was only behind by a few days, not by a whole campaign. :'(  I know you get most of your information from the Avon newsletter sent each Monday and from your local DSM, but I do like to keep you informed of how our own little team is doing. As far as stats go, the chart below compares where our team is at the end of C6 compared to where we were last year at the same time. We have added more than 26 people in the past year, but have also lost some along the way, leaving us at 66 members.

Top Ten in Sales for C5   (44 team members turned in orders)

 1. Joanne Bradford
 2. Rene Parker  PC
 3. Alisha Edwards
 4. Betty Allgood
 5. Caroline McCullough
 6. Susan Watkins
 7. Kelly Fuller
 8. Maria Loza
 9. Steffanie Erdelt
10. Ruby Nunnery

Top Ten in Sales for C6  (44 team members turned in orders)

 1. Steffanie Erdelt   (Steffanie outsold me this campaign!)
 2. Darren Mannahan
 3. Nicole Darby
 4. Judith Lea
 5. Lisa Anderson
 6. Gladys Faulk
 7. Kathy McAlpin
 8. Shanitris Wilder
 9. Susan Watkins
10. Barbie Breen

Do you notice anything a bit unusual about these two lists? I do! There are only two names that appear on both lists...Susan Watkins and Steffanie Erdelt. That doesn't happen very often, as our top ten usually contains 5 to 7 of the same names each time. I hope that this variation means that more people are working harder to build their customer bases and follow up with customers before turning in orders. I hope that it does NOT mean that sales are down for some of you who usually do well, but I know that can happen now and then. In fact, sales are down just a bit for me right now, which explains why Steffanie outsold me in C6. I'm working on fixing that problem by getting out lots of books to new people. Which reminds me, one of my best customers, who had been purchasing Avon from me for many years, passed away in February. I will certainly miss visiting with Chris M. and her dog, Prissy. It's hard not to stop at her house to leave brochures after all the years I've been doing it.

Speaking of following up with customers, does anyone want to share a way that they have gone above and beyond the call of duty to service a customer? I know you have stories about times you have done more than would be required because you wanted to please a good customer, so please share what you have done in a reply to this email. Thanks!

We added one new team member over the past two campaigns, and that would be Jennifer Killian of Fort Payne, Alabama. Welcome to the Cloud Climbers team, Jennifer!

Birthdays for March include: Judith Lea on 3/6, Ramona Hyman on 3/13, Michelle Watkins on 3/21, and Barbie Breen on 3/23.
Anniversaries for March include: Tawana Frails - 12 years on 3/4, Teresa Jordan - 3 years on 3/27, and Cheryl Parker - 5 years on 3/27.  Congratulations to all of you for sticking with your businesses over the long haul!

The changes to the Leadership Earnings structure have now kicked in, and I received notification that two of our four Promoters who have sponsored new representatives have missed out on their 3% Sponsorship Bonus because they did not turn in a $50 order themselves. Oops! Perhaps you were not aware of that money you would earn from your team members' sales because you did not read the information given by Avon. If that is the case, go to the Sales Leadership tab on YA and then click on Advanced Leadership Program to see the graphic. If you have a team member under you, be sure to always turn in at least a $50 order each campaign so you don't miss out on money you could be earning!!

I'm seeing an increase in those who are getting eStore Direct Delivery orders, so I want to congratulate all of those whose effects to promote their online stores is paying off. Reporting eStore orders for the past two campaigns: Suheidy Colon, Valerie Foster, Jessica Martinez, April Moore, Rene Parker, and Kristi Strode. Keep up the good work!

That's it for now. Let me know if you need my help in any way, let me hear your stories of customer service (mentioned above), go to your local Avon Sales Meeting if you possibly can, and let me know if there is anyone you would like for me to talk to about the Avon business so I can help get them started on your team.

The TIme is Growing Closer!!!!

I'll make this short and very sweet, because I know you are a busy person. In Campaign 9, which means in the first week of April, Avon will begin giving the same percentage of earnings to representatives for orders at their eStores as they give for orders personally delivered to customers. That means that you can make as much money when people order at your eStore and you never touch the products or do any delivery of them as you make when you place orders, sort orders, and deliver orders to customers. Isn't that great?!? We are extremely excited about it, and I wanted to be sure that you knew so you could get your business started now and start posting your eStore link on all your social media, sharing it with friends, putting it in your email signature, etc. This is a great day to begin your Avon business, so go to and just do it!!

Winter is still with us, and the heating systems in our homes and offices are still robbing us of moisture in our skin. And when Spring and Summer come, the sun and the wind and do the same.

How to...Makeup in Five Minutes!

I personally enjoy "putting on my face" most of the time, but I know there are many ladies who do not and the shorter the time it takes, the better they will like it! Avon has put together a few products that can get you ready to head out the door in five minutes if you are a makeup minimalist. :)

C4 Cloud Climbers Unit Newsletter - 2017

Hello All!

I'm running behind on my newsletter and don't have much time to get it done today, so it will probably be the shortest newsletter I have ever sent. I guess most of you, who are also very busy, will not mind that too much. 😊

Top Ten in Sales for C4

 1. Rene Parker   PC
 2. Steffanie Erdelt

 3. Ruby Nunnery
 4. Brenda Taylor
 5. Annie Watts
 6. Lydia Lopez
 7. Susanne Walters
 8. Nicole Darby
 9. Sharon Tibbs
10. Lakeesha Acklin

I have stopped purchasing ALMA leads for awhile, because many of the ones I was getting since Avon ran television and print ads were not quality leads and were rarely interested in the business. Now I'm back to concentrating on working on personal recruiting, and it is really a good time for that since the ALMA leads do not earn in the Ticket to Boss Life incentive. Perhaps I'll earn a ticket or two before the program ends at C13, and perhaps some of you will as well. I don't see that any have been earned so far by members of our team. Remember that if you appoint someone who places a $150 first or second order you will get a ticket. If you earn a ticket, don't scratch alone and be sure to have a video of you scratching your ticket. A Facebook Live video would be great, and your friends could see it and might become interested in the business or might decide to order from you, so you'd win from Avon and have an extra win just by sharing. If I get a ticket, I'll be sure to share my scratch off video too!

We added two new Cloud Climbers since the last newsletter, both of them joining Avon this week. We are happy to have Sandra Foote and Davacenia Adams on our team and I pray they will have much success with their businesses! I don't have a Spotlight representative this campaign, because I'm still not getting info from you in order to do that feature. I think it is great to learn about others on our team, but if you won't share any information about yourself, I can't share. Sorry. ☹ If you want the Spotlight to come back, please send me a short paragraph about yourself, your family, your pets, your goals and dreams, or just anything you want to share.

Our total team sales for C4 were $6,474 and we currently have 67 members on our team. I'm still hoping to meet my 2017 goal of 100 team members, so let me know if there is anyone you want me to talk to about the business. I am not pushy about Avon at all, but I'd be happy to send an email with details to anyone whose email address you give me. What have you got to lose? Who do you know who could use extra income? Anyone I contact on your behalf would be your own team member if they decide to begin an Avon business.

Have a great rest of the weekend! Take advantage of these beautiful days to get out and do a bit of business promotion and work to meet your own goals for 2017.

Sandra Moore
Avon Gold Ambassador

Terrific Tuesday Returns!

My Terrific Tuesday post is back, but I can't promise it will be posted every week, because I never know how busy each Tuesday will be. Today I have a moment or two to write, but mostly I have a new product I want to share, since I had an "Ah ha!" moment this morning while watching a video by another Avon Leader, Linda Montavon. She was sharing her product of the day, Avon True Color* Nourishing Lipstick, and I thought "Ah ha!" it is Tuesday and I have not done a Terrific Tuesday post in quite awhile, so perhaps this would be a good day to write one. By the way, it is also Valentine's Day and what do you see a lot of on Valentine's Day? Lips! Because love usually involves kissing in our culture, our Valentine's Day greetings will often have lip prints on them. When you are kissing your loved one, you want your lips to be soft and smooth, which is why you need a nourishing lipstick** like ours. 

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick is infused with jojoba oil, vitamin E, collagen, and lanolin, and it keeps lips feeling
conditioned and moisturized even after you take it off! You get full coverage, lasting color, and conditioning care in one nourishing lipstick. This lipstick is available in 10 colors*** and is intro special price of $5.99 right now. 

*Avon True Color means the color you buy is the color you apply. Now all your favorite lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, foundations, and nail enamels have Avon's acclaimed True Color technology, designed to give you the natural flawless look you want, nothing less. Rich pigments are blended into our high-quality formulas for guaranteed color that stays true all day.

**Avon did a survey of women and found that lipstick is the most widely purchased makeup product, on average women own 12 lipsticks, 46% of women mix different lipsticks for the look they want (I do this a lot!), and 69% of women reapply lipstick 3 times a day. Would you like to be a part of furnishing those women with their lipstick? It's a great way to have fun and make a profit at the same time.

C5 Customer Order Reminder - Best Buys of the Brochure


I have returned from my annual trip to the FHU Bible Lectureship and now I am trying to play catch up. I have so many things going on that I'm loosing track of the most important, like getting this reminder out to you! If you need to look at the brochure before ordering, just click here. If you need anything from the previous two campaigns or saw better prices there, let me know to back order from those.
  • Pg. 7, NEW Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick, available in 10 beautiful shades and intro special price of $5.99.
  • Pg. 9, NEW Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara, available in 3 shades, including Navy!, and also intro special price of $5.99.
  • Pg. 13, Glimmersticks Brow Definer (3 new shades have been added) and Eye Liner are $4.99. Don't forget that we no longer carry the Luxury Liners (the ones you sharpen), so Glimmersticks are the recommended replacement.
  • Pg. 22, Always on Point Eye Liner is another good option and available for the same price - $4.99 - in four shades.
  • Pgs. 26/27, Flawless Liquid Foundation, Cream-to-Powder Foundation, Pressed Powder, and Loose Powder are each $8.99 this campaign.
  • Pg. 29, Be Blushed cheek color is in a new package and now recommended for lips as well. Hmmm.... there's an idea to try. The price is $7.99.
  • Pg. 33, Beauty Balm Cream is available while supplies last. I don't know if it will be reintroduced at a later time, so get it while you can at $10 with a Buy 1 Get 1 for $2.99 offer.
  • Pg. 49, Anew Ultimate Skin Care items are $19.99 each. I have it on good authority, as in Avon has announced it, that Anew Skin Care will not be offered at this low sale price much longer. I believe what I heard was that the lowest it will go will be $21.99, so this might be a good time to stock up.
  • Pg. 61, Anew Clinical Absolute Even Dark Circle Corrector is $17.99. I need to put this one on my own order, as mine is just about empty. Absolute Even Multi-Tone Skin Corrector is on the same page for $21.99. 
  • Pg. 63, All Anew Cleansers are on sale!
  • Pgs. 76/77, The Imari and Far Away fragrances (3 variations of each) are each $11.99.
  • Pg. 135, Senses Blushing Cherry Blossom Collection - a breath of fresh air as we look toward spring - all 5 items for $12.99.
  • Pg. 149, SSS Supreme Nourishment Triple Phase Body Oil is only $9.99. You will love this luxurious treatment with macadamia, argan, and babassu oils to nourish, protect, and hydrate skin.
  • Back Cover, SSS Shower Gel is $1.99 and available in three scents.
Thanks so much!

C3 Cloud Climbers Unit Newsletter

 (The newsletter I do for my team at the conclusion of each Avon campaign.)

Greetings, Cloud Climbers!

Have you had a good day today? I've been taking advantage of the fact that I work from home and set my own schedule to stay at home today and out of this damp cold air. Brrrr! I know a lot of you have to get out in it, but I hope you had a good day anyway. Did you do anything today to further your Avon business? Sometimes its the little things that can go a long way. Sometimes you can figure out ways to be a "name dropper" if you just have the mindset that promoting your business is not always something you schedule time for but can also be something you just do along the way in your daily life. For example: Quite often you can work the fact that you sell Avon into comments on Facebook where you can't post a link to your store. Today I had a FB friend mention that her car had been wrecked and how sad it was to give up that car that she had for 10 years and all the memories she had, etc. In my comment I said something about how I always hated to give up one of my Avon-mobiles when they wore out. It was a way of letting her friends who were reading comments on her post know that I sold Avon without really saying it. Nothing may come of that, but then again, someone may notice it and contact me if they need an Avon lady. That's just one example, and I have been able to do similar things several times in the past. Use your noggin and I'm sure you can come up with similar ways to promote your business. If you have done something similar and seen results, share your experience with the rest of us.

The Cloud Climbers are happy to welcome five Avon Ladies who have joined our team since my last newsletter and they are Kelly Fuller of Lewisburg, TN, Vallerie Foster of Murfreesboro, TN, Tabitha White of Mount Juliet, TN, Laura Knox of Tunnel Hill, GA, and Joanne Bradford of Manassas, VA. Joanne is the niece of Ruby Nunnery and her appointment makes Ruby an Avon Promoter, so congratulations to you, Ruby!  

Birthdays for February: There are a bunch! Sheilia Smith, Vallarie Smith, Sonya Johnson, Angi Price, Kim Mitchell, Rene Parker, Benetta Staten, Rosanna Cassidy, Annie Watts, and Magalis Justiniano. Happy birthday to all of you!

We also have several Avon Anniversaries in February: Nikia Banks - 7 years, Michelle Watkins - 1 year, Susanne Walters - 3 years, Ruby Nunnery - 37 years, Claire Philadelphia - 24 years, Virginia Washington - 8 years. Congratulations to all of these for a job well done over the years!!

In the Spotlight this campaign is Kelly Fuller, who is one of our newest members. Kelly has been married to Ronald for 25 years and has three sons, Gunner, Nathan, and Matthew. Her husband works at Walker Die Casting and Autozone. Kelly just got her GED (congratulations on that achievement!), and found Avon when she was looking for a job to be able to work from home. She is a Sunday School teacher for Kindergarten through Second grade and has four dogs. Kelly sold Avon many years ago, so much of the system is new to her but she is taking the Avon University training and learning a lot from it. She also lives just a few miles from where my husband grew up and on the same road that his grandparents lived on until they passed away.

Registration for RepFest 2017 is now open, as I'm sure that you know by now. I have my reservation made and I'm booking a hotel room tomorrow. I have room for one more person in that room, so if you want to attend and want to split the cost of a room for two nights with 3 other people, please let me know as soon as possible. If I don't hear from one of you very soon, that space will go to someone else. Call me at 256-479-4061 if you want more details. I know that some of you live only a short drive from the Opryland Hotel so you might want to just drive over for the days and sleep in your own beds at night. I do hope that some of you who are serious about your business will decide to attend. I have heard from many representative that attending Convention can really help to further your business and I look forward to experiencing it for the first time myself.

I'm including a video from Dani Johnson below that I thought might be beneficial to you. I thought she made some very good points. Since it is only 8 minutes long, I hope that you will take time to view it.

Have a great rest of the week!
