"♪Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future.♫" Do you remember that song by the Eagles? It just popped into my head as I began to write about the fact that I let so much time pass that I'm now doing a combined Newsletter again.😳 Ah, well. As we take care of important things, other things must sometimes take a back seat. However, I am going to be disciplined today and get this done! As I checked my reports for the top people in sales, I'm now sorry that I didn't get the C11 Newsletter out on time, because some of you are really doing great, and I am so very proud of you and should have said so before now!!!

Anna told me some time ago that she only wanted to do direct delivery sales and you may notice that it seems to be working for her right now. Anna, do you have any tips to share with us on how you encourage customers to purchase in this way? I might be able to use a few of those tips myself!

We warmly welcome a new Cloud Climber: Amy Budisalich of Decatur, AL! Amy and I have chatted back and forth through email and FB just a little bit and she tells me she considers herself a resident of Priceville and she is excited to have her Avon business started. She has also been taking some of the Avon U training courses and finding them very helpful as she begins her Avon journey.
I have one more Challenge for you, and this will be the last one unless we get 8 participants, which is just under 10% of the team. In the beginning of my Challenge program, I stated that if little interest was shown I would drop the program after a few tries. I think we've given it enough of a trial to see that most of you are just not interested in participating, or else you just aren't reading the newsletters and don't know there are Challenges in them 😭. I announced this Challenge on our FB group page last week, and you have until I get the next newsletter sent to let me know you have met the Challenge - meaning you have at least two weeks to get it done. The Challenge is in the image attached and all you have to do is share it at least one way. You can text it, put on Facebook or IG, email it, etc., just as long as you get it out there. Of course, you have to be prepared to send out the "bags" of samples, but you can order some after sharing and get that part done on your own schedule. The Challenge is just to get the offer shared, and I have already gotten four takers since I shared it, with one of those not being a current customer.
I want to give a Shout Out to Linda Wardell, who has been doing some extra hard work lately in promoting her business on social media. I've particularly noticed the Avon posts on her FB story, and I hope her FB friends are taking notice as well and her business will grow through her efforts. CCs, tell me what you are doing to further your business for a Shout Out in the next newsletter.
Birthdays for June include: Vicky White (6/4), Annette Shepard (6/25), and Kathy McAlpin (6/28). Happy birthdayto these three! Celebrating Avon Anniversaries in June are: Deanna Buswell (2 years on 6/1), Anna Kinsaul (2 years on 6/12), Susan Watkins (3 years on 6/16), Vicky White (16 years on 6/20), Ann Henry (29 years on 6/25), and Virginia Curtis (20 years on 6/29). Congratulations to these hard working Avon ladies!
By now most of you, if not all of you, will have heard from Dee Powers, who is the new Field Trainer for most of the area where our Cloud Climbers reside. If you live outside of her territory, I'm sure you have heard from your Field Trainer as well. Here's a bit of background for those who don't know what a FT is: For many years, Avon had District Sales Managers, Division Managers, and Field Trainers. We all interacted most with our DSMs, had some interaction with DMs, and there were occasional classes taught in various locations by Field Trainers. When Avon decided that Leadership Reps like myself could do (and often were doing) most of the work done by the DSMs, they did away with that position and hired Sales Coaches and Leadership Coaches to work with the top Reps in Sales and Leadership in various ways. Now these Coaches' job descriptions have changed and they no longer work with just the top people but are Field Trainers to help ALL Representatives. Therefore, if Dee (or your Field Trainer, if it is not Dee), invites you to a FB call, a meet and greet in your area, etc., I do hope that you will participate if you can. Dee sent out a document this morning with a lot of information and locations for a meet and greet, so be sure to look at that and RSVP if you can make one of them. I'll be attending the one at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, at Newk's in Huntsville, but I could also attend one at the IHOP in Athens on the morning of Friday, June 28. In fact, if you will let me know that you are going to be at that one, I will do my best to attend it as well so that I can see you, too! If you can't make it to one of those meetings but you would like some one-on-one training from your Field Trainer, be sure to let her know. She is hired by Avon to train, so take advantage of that opportunity if you need it!
Remember that I am praying daily for you and your business, and let me know if there is a way I can help you with it. In particular, if there is someone who you think might be interested in learning more about the Avon business, I'd be happy to send an email with details to them and include a link to your online store so they can get started there. All I need is a name and an email address, but make sure you get permission to share it with me first.
Some of you are in contact with me regularly while there are others that I never hear from. I plan to start doing some Power Hour calls of my own later in the summer, so if we have never talked over the phone before, we will have the opportunity to do that then.
That's it for now. I hope that each of you has a most wonderful weekend!
