I hope that you don't think that I have forgotten about you or about getting this newsletter out, because I haven't. In fact, I think about you and it every day! Unfortunately, thinking about the newsletter and getting it done are two different things. I do apologize for it coming to you a week late.

Celebrating an Avon Anniversary in April is Gladys Faulk, who has been steadily serving her customers for 26 years. Wow! Way to go, Gladys!! Two Cloud Climbers have birthdays this month - Teresa Jordan on the 12th and Franchesca Perez on the 24th. Happy birthday, Avon ladies!
I'm happy to report Avon Awards for Rene Parker PC, who achieved a PRP Sales Increase and received 25 points, and Susanne Walters, with received 100 points for being a PRP Contender. Congratulations on achieving awards for your continued hard work, Rene and Susanne. I'm not seeing anything on the list for those having direct delivery orders in C7, but I know already that there will be some for C8.
If you are on Facebook you are probably in the FB group for Districts 1136 and 1139, the two districts that Shana Fuller is DSM for. If you haven't gone to the page to see pictures from the Spring Rally, you might want to do that. I'm going to include a few pictures here for those who are not on FB. I helped with setup and breakdown and it was really great to see a lot of Avon friends that I don't see often anymore. The only Cloud Climber who came was Ramona Hyman. Ramona said she wanted to work hard on her Avon business this summer and I'm sure she felt coming to the rally would be a good start to doing that. It was good to see you there, Ramona. If I can help you in any way to boost your business, please let me know, and that offer goes for all my other Cloud Climbers as well.
Toasting to the 130th Anniversary of Avon. (That fruit punch was excellent, and we had cake too!)
Can you find Waldo (me)?
That's our Ramona in the red dress. She sat right up front so she could see and hear it all!

My C8 newsletter will be coming out in about a week, and then with the C9 newsletter you will see some changes if all goes according to plan. I say that because I have stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to invest more money in my efforts at recruiting. I have been using the ALMA system to obtain free Standard leads from Avon and those leads are generally people who are just looking into all sorts of network marketing/direct sales/home businesses. Many just click on a link and put in their information but they aren't truly interested in becoming Avon representatives. Avon has another program through ALMA whereby qualified representatives can purchase Premium leads. Premium leads are those who have clicked through on an actual Avon ad or have gone to an Avon website to investigate the business and given their information. Premium leads, by their very nature, have a much better success rate of actually starting Avon businesses. I have decided to try purchasing Premium leads for a few campaigns to see if I can build the Leadership part of my business to a higher level. For most of my time in Avon Leadership my team members have been from the North Alabama/Southern Tennessee area, other than one I had from up north a few years ago. These Premium leads will come from all over the U.S., so that means I'll have to work with different RPS schedules and I'll have to really work to stay organized. I hope this plan works out, and you will know very soon whether it does.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I promise you will be hearing from me again very soon!
