I hope you all are doing fine right now. If you aren't and you need special prayers for your own situation or for the situation of others dear to you, please let me know so I can add those needs to my prayer list. We are doing fine here, and doing about the same things as I reported in my last newsletter and/or the customer reminder. I am still working on masks and I'm about to offer them to my local customers as a free gift now that we are getting caught up on masks for our church family.
So, who has viewed the webinar/training for the new digital catalog and tools to use with our online stores? I must confess that I have fallen behind on the abundance of available training for several reasons, but I do plan to learn about it all soon and I hope you do as well. I don't know if I will be using many of the promotions yet, because I need to decide whether the return is worth the investment and I can't do that until I have done the training and research. I've picked up a few new online customers recently just because I keep a presence on various social media outlets and on Google My Business and Bing for Business and therefore I show up in searches when people in the area are looking for a Rep. You must keep putting yourself out there if you want to get noticed.

Every now and then I have occasion to meet one of the Cloud Climbers that I have never met. A couple of weeks ago when I was working to try to get email addresses set up for the three CCs that did not have them I went to the Nature's Apothecary store in Huntsville and met Gladys Faulk for the first time. Gladys has been an Avon Rep for 784 campaigns (she just celebrated her 30th Avon Anniversary) and has never turned in an order using the internet. I can't imagine trying to turn in Premier level sales orders over the phone, but she manages. She's not the only CC doing that, either. I'm just so glad that Avon is still allowing that option and I hope they continue to do so. I also hope that I get to meet more of you in the future!
As of today, if nothing changes to say we can't do it, Eli's Block Party Car Show and Cruise In will take place on the parking lot of the Bethel church of Christ in Athens on May 16. This is an event I've had a booth at for several years, and will be the first event I've participated in for several months. I hope that we are able to have the event as planned, as this is a fundraiser for the battle against childhood cancer. Normally I would invite you to come sit with me at my booth if you want to experience what it is like to run a booth at an event, but since we are social distancing as much as possible, I suppose I should not have an extra person in the space behind the booth. I do want to invite those of you who live in the area to come out and support the event! Here is the link for more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/2168195986620362/

We haven't added any new Cloud Climbers since the last newsletter, but I know of one team member who should be increasing our number by one very soon. Remember, unless Avon extends the program again, FREE signups end at the end of Campaign 12, which means on May 26. Please be sure to let your prospects know that time is running out if they want to begin a business at no cost!
Have a great weekend, and keep looking up! Remember, "Consistent Activity = Consistent Income".
