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!
