C18 Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter

(My newsletter for my wonderful team of Cloud Climbers. Join us by going to and using this reference code - smoore.) 

Greetings Cloud Climbers!

I hope you are all staying dry and comfortable as we begin to get rain from the hurricane Harvey. I'll be on the computer a good bit today taking care of things that I had to let go while I worked on the FB Virtual Opportunity Meeting all day Monday. I'm sorry there were not more of you able to participate, but I certainly appreciate those who pitched in and shared the event. It was shared 10 times, but I don't know how many of those shares were by Cloud Climbers. I do know that five of you said you were attending and at least four of you actually checked in. Thanks so much to Tisha JohnsonJohnny HarvillRene Parker PC, and especially Deanna Buswell and Alison Hogan. Deanna and Alison were checking in and commenting on the event for most of the day and Deanna was the winner of the $40 in free Avon, which I have already ordered to be shipped to her house. She ordered Senses products so that she can make up sets to sell to customers. And she will get a chance to sell her bundles at an event she will have a booth at on September 30, since she jumped at the opportunity I sent out by email to all of you last night. Here is the link to the Virtual Opportunity event and you are welcome to look at all the information (including several videos I did) and share it with others. We did not get any new members on the day of the event, but the event will stay available on my FB business page and I intend to use it to promote the opportunity for awhile and you can do the same. 

Top Ten in Sales for C18

 1. Sandra Moore  HS
 2. Rosanna Cassidy
 3. Tisha Johnson
 4. Judith Lea
 5. Alison Hogan
 6. Gladys Faulk
 7. Ruby Nunnery
 8. Steffanie Erdelt
 9. Misty Walker  NEW
10. Phyllis Smith  NEW  

Congratulations to Misty Walker and Phyllis Smith for having first orders of over $200 each. Wow, Avon Ladies!! You are starting your businesses off with a bang! Those with Direct Delivery orders during C18 were: Rosanna Cassidy, Sandra Moore HSAlison HoganRamona HymanRhonda KennedyMargo Prytz, and Susanne Walters.

New Cloud Climbers added to the team since the last newsletter include: Agnes Breault of Harvest, Alabama (my town), Phyllis Thomas of Hayden, Alabama, Sue Whaley of Huntsville, Alabama, (returning to Rene Parker PC's team and ready to get to work), and Loyce Salas of Union Grove, Alabama. All of these new people are from Alabama and I think it is time our team branched outside of the Southeast, so, do you have contacts in the far reaches of the USA I could talk to about the business opportunity? Or maybe you could just share that link in the first paragraph of this newsletter with them. You can say something like: "Hey, I'm having fun with my Avon business and I just thought you might like to see a little bit about what I do and how I do it in case you might be interested in doing the same. Here's my reference code ____ in you should decide to start your business." It can be something as simple as that, which is not pushy at all, just sharing the opportunity.

There are a lot you us who were born in September so Happy Birthday to all of us celebrating this month: Phyllis ThomasVirginia CurtisBrittney MontiWendy ReedCynthia BlakeSandra Moore, Ashley ParkerDanielle Reneau,Rebecca Robertson, Heather JohnsonCheryl ParkerMelanie Hamilton, and Debbie Bowers.  Celebrating Avon Anniversaries this month are: Veronica Boyd (4 years on 9/1), Carolyn King (3 years on 9/4), Sharon Tibbs (33 years on 9/6), Kelli Violet (6 years on 9/12), and Magalis Justiniano (12 years on 9/20). 

Wouldn't it be great advertising for your business to be driving a brand new Viva Pink Mini Cooper? Don't miss out on getting your entries in for Drive Like a Boss! In case you haven't seen it yet, here is the basic information you need to know:

Drive your business to success with one of our newest incentives—Drive Like a Boss! All Representatives can participate in this amazing new incentive starting C20 through C25, 2017 (TS 22 – 1, 2017) for the chance to win an exclusive Mini Cooper, decked out in 4 exclusive Avon hues. The Drive Like a Boss incentive will help you fuel your business with best-in-class training to accelerate your growth, build skills you need to earn entries, and help put your business in over-drive.
But First, Let Me Attend a Workshop
Representatives in each region will have the chance to earn entries to win their region's fabulous Mini Cooper. To be eligible and to earn your first entry, you must attend a Drive Like a Boss Workshop—they start in September, and there will be about 48 to choose from—or complete an AVON U online training course. Plus, you can earn additional entries by increasing sales and adding Qualified New Recruits to your team.
We will be having one of the Workshops in Huntsville on October 14th and the time is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. but I don't have the location yet. I'll let you know as soon as I do, because I'd love to meet up with a lot of you on that date. There is a part at the beginning of the day that is designed so that your potential team members can attend and I'll have more information on that later as well. 
The other incentive coming up is Cruise Like a Boss. This one does not involve earning entries into a drawing like Drive Like a Boss but involves earning points toward a goal. Some points are easy to earn, but reaching the goal of 7,000 points is challenging. Well, yeah! Of course it is challenging. That's the whole point! Avon puts out these incentives to challenge us to grow our businesses and grow our teams. Perhaps you haven't noticed it, but there are things you can earn along the way even if you don't earn the cruise - an Avon Beauty Case, an Avon Tote, and an Avon Carry-On Suitcase - things you might need if you earn the trip. :) Take a look at the information below so that you know what is needed to reach these goals and make your plan now because it starts in Campaign 20. 
I'm going to keep asking you to add me as a friend on Facebook until all of you who use Facebook have added me. :)  I want to be able to add you to our team page so we can share with each other. There are only about 1/3 of you in that group now and we need to build that number and help each other with tips, encouragement, and answering questions. Find me here:
That's it for now. Have a great day and remember that I am praying for the success of your business!

Five Steps to a Flawless Finish

Often we speak of makeup "palettes" because of the beautiful colors we use to "paint" our faces. For a fine finished portrait we need to start with a smooth canvas as our foundation.*

My Team Newsletter for Campaign 17


RepFest 2017 was a wonderful experience! I don't know if I'll ever attend another Avon convention, because I'm not a great fan of flying or expending large amounts of money on trips that require plane tickets, but I'm truly glad that this one was close by and I was able to attend. I had enough Avon points to cover the registration fee, I had a couple of roommates so we were able to share the expense, and my riders helped cover the cost of gas, so all in all the trip wasn't too expensive at all and well worth the cost. You can all share in the experience for only $10 plus your gas by attending RepFest at the Movies this Saturday, August 19, in Hoover, Alabama, and you will get a swag bag worth $73!! Here is the link to register: You can bring a friend, so bring your husband or wife or someone who is considering starting their own Avon business. The friend pays $10 and receives a swag bag as well. I'd take a car load of you myself, but I am running too far behind on my work so I'm going to skip it and leave my seat for someone who didn't get to go to RepFest. The thing we learned about at RepFest that excites me the most is the "espira" line of nutritional supplements coming in 2018. They will launch in January, I believe, at the perfect time to help our businesses most. Avon wants to concentrate on the holiday selling season during 4th Quarter and introduce "espira" in 1st Quarter - the time of year when more people start concentrating on improving their health than at any other time.

Two days before leaving for RepFest, the 35 Nested Representatives I earned in the Lead to Achieve challenge were added to my team, so I want to introduce all of them.  I'm excited to see that some of my Nested Reps. are on the top ten lists below. The Lead to Achieve incentive was a great blessing to my business and I am certainly thankful. If any of you, new, old, or nested, need anything from me, please know that I am only a phone call or text away - 256-479-4061

As you can tell from this list, Avon gave us people who lived in our general area when they could so it would be easier if we ever want to get together for meetings, events, etc. Speaking of meetings, I am going to have a Virtual Opportunity Meeting on my Facebook business page on Monday, August 28. The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., so even those who are working can participate. I have not done an event like this before, so it will be a learning experience for me. If you are on Facebook and we are not already Facebook friends, please go to and send me a friend request so I can add you to our Cloud Climbers Avon Team page. Then I will also be able to invite you to participate in the Opportunity Meeting and you can invite your friends. You never know who might be interested in joining you in your Avon journey, so don't make decisions for your friends. Invite them and let them decide whether or not to attend to learn more. I will make it very clear that anyone who becomes a Representative after attending the event at your invitation needs to put your code in as the Reference Code so that they are added to your team. I have plenty of people on my First Generation, so I want them to be on your First Generation, not mine. That will be of greater benefit to me in the long run, so please trust that I am not going to be grabbing your recruits and invite, Invite, INVITE! I'll be launching the event later this week so that people have plenty of time to see it and accept invitations. On the day of the event I will start with a live video welcoming everyone and then I'll post bits and pieces of information about the Avon business opportunity all day long. There will be a door prize of Avon products for one attendee, but I'm not sure how I'll be determining how people enter the drawing yet.

These six Cloud Climbers had Direct Delivery orders placed at their Online Stores in C17: Sandra MooreDarren MannahanAnna KinsaulMelanie HamiltonBarbie Breen, and Alison Hogan. Six out of ninety-nine team members is not a high percentage, so I suspect that many of you still don't have your Online Stores set up or perhaps you haven't been sharing your link. As you can see below my signature, I share my link on almost every email I send out, only removing it when I feel it is not appropriate. I also share it a lot on my Facebook business page, I include it in my email reminders to my customers, and it is on every brochure I hand out. Just this week I posted on a page about the Sweepstakes that is always on our personal Online Stores that we and our customers can enter and a Representative said she didn't know anything about the sweepstakes because she didn't have her Online Store set up. The reason she didn't have it set up is because she didn't know how to do so. I also heard from one of our Cloud Climbers that she needed my help in setting up her Online Store, but she really didn't need my help once I told her to just go to and look for her Web Office and she could find the info there. If you don't have yours set up, go to Web Office and then click on the pink square in the very center of the screen to set it up. It only takes a couple of minutes, because Avon already takes care of keeping the information there current. Please take an extra 10-15 minutes to personalize your Online Store so that your customers will know it is you they are shopping with and then start sharing your link. You cannot wait for people to find your Online Store, YOU must share your link. 

I won't do a Spotlight with this newsletter since I don't want it to become too long. Nested Reps, if you will provide me with just a little information about yourself and your goals and dreams/why you are an Avon Representative, I will be happy to Spotlight you in an upcoming newsletter. For most of us this is our order day for C18, so I hope you are getting ready to turn your order in before midnight. If it isn't where you want it to be to meet your goals, get on the phone or send out another email reminder! Don't let the day slip away without making money that you could have made if you had just asked.

You and your business are in my prayers. Have a great rest of the week!

Best Buys of the C18 Brochure - and Introducing the A Box!

(My reminder for my customers, highlighting some of the best buys of the brochure.) 


The past 10 days have been crazy busy and my brain has had to move in so many different directions that I sometimes feel like I am just circling from one thing to another. I had a wonderful time at Avon's RepFest 2017 at the Opryland Convention Center last weekend and will have exciting news to share about "espira" later, but that plus having two extra cats (our son's - one of which was lost for two days while I was gone and thought to be hawk meat for awhile but then found safely at a neighbor's house upon my return) in addition to our own two, a son who is moving into his first home, the funeral for our sweet little Eli Williams (12 year old boy from our church who died from brain cancer) on Friday, and activities with my other business (essential oils and you can ask me if you want more details on that), working on our FHU Associates Fall Market event coming up in September (we still need more craft vendors if you know of some good ones), plus a coaching program with Avon that I am currently a part of to help me become a better mentor for my team of 111 representatives (I just earned 35 of them in an Avon incentive!), all of the above combined with trying to run our household and take care of my normal Avon business activities has been a bit overwhelming. Therefore, I have not been able to get all of the C18 brochures out that I wanted to get delivered and I still have a few C17 orders to deliver. I hope to get caught up this week and be able to focus better. For now, if you did not get a C18 brochure you can view one by clicking here and then let me know what you need or just go ahead and put your order in at my Online Store and choose Representative delivery. When you do that your order comes into my cart and can be submitted tomorrow night with my other orders. Be sure not to miss The A Box, because it is a great deal for only $10 with your $40 purchase. If the georgous fall colors are not right for you, the box would make a great gift for a daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc.

Some of the best buys of the C18 brochure include:

  • Pg. 9, SSS Bath Oil, 16.9 fl. oz. size, is $10.99 and 25 fl. oz. size is $15.99. Both of these are at the Lowest Price This Year.
  • Pg. 13, SSS Bonus-Size Body Lotions with pumps are $10.99, which is also the LPTY.
  • Pg. 15, SSS DD Body Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (our only body lotion that contains SPF), is only $7.99. You get our Age-Defying Complex AND sunscreen in this product!
  • Pg. 23, Naturals Shower Gels, Lotions, and Body Sprays are all Buy 2, Get 2 Free.
  • Pg. 27, FootWorks Lavender 3-in-1 Pampering Oil is only $3.99. We received a bottle of this free at RepFest and I used it that night. Smoother feet and smoother sleep.
  • Pg. 29, NEW FootWorks Ginger & White Tea Collection - Scrub, Clay Mask, and Nourishing Cream - each one only $4.99.
  • Pg. 37, Sun damaged hair? Too much chemical treatment? Reconstruction 7 Intense Recovery Mask is only $4.99.
  • Pg. 39, Anew Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Cream is only $34.99. It's our most luxurious night creme!
  • Pg. 41, Here's a surprise -  Anew Ultimate Day Cream, Night Cream, and Eye Cream for only $60!! 
  • Pg. 51, I understand that the Brightening Sheet Mask and the Firming Sheet Mask will be discontinued soon, which explains why they are currently only $10 for a set of 4. Almost 70% off of the regular price!
  • Pg. 61, Vitamin C Brightening Serum is LPTY of $21.99. Many Representatives were raving about how much they loved this product at RepFest 2017. 
  • Pg. 73, True Color Flawless Liquid Foundation, with medium to full coverage, only $8.99. 
  • Pg. 81, True Color Flawless Loose Powder or Mattifying Pressed Powder are each $8.99. Add the Pro Powder Brush for $9.99 to get a soft, even finish.
  • Pg. 84, SuperExtend Winged Out Mascara and SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara are each only $5.99. 
  • Pg. 103, Beyond Color Liostick and Lip Conditioner are each $5.99, LPTY. I highly recommend the shade Twig, which has been a best seller since it was introduced many years ago.
  • Pg. 104, Makeup Setting Spray ($9.99) also gets good reviews from Avon Reps and their customers. You just spritz a bit on after you finish your makeup to set it and forget it all day long.
  • Pg. 125, NEW "Be" fragrances. Three fragrances to match whatever mood you are in, either worn alone or together since they compliment each other. Intro special of $12.99.
  • Pg. 127, the Far Away fragrances are each only $12.99. Far Away has long been an Avon best seller and there is a scent spot on the page. 
  • Pg. 135, the Classic fragrances are LPTY of $8.99. Don't forget that Soft Musk has returned to this collection by popular demand.
  • Pg. 219 & the Back Cover. You certainly don't want to miss the A Box, which is only $10 with your $40 purchase. This $40 value features the Divine Wine Collection - a Fall Beauty Trend.
Thanks so very much for your continued support of my business. It really means a lot to me. If you know of other people who might be interested in ordering, please forward this email to them. When they shop at my Online Store they can choose to have orders shipped directly to themselves if they live outside of my delivery area.

Avon RepFest 2017 Recap

WOW!! What a weekend it was. I have so much to share about what I learned at RepFest 2017 that I hardly know where to begin. However, Customers are what drives every Avon Representative's business, so my Customers come first. That means that very high on my priority list for today is getting my latest Avon order sorted and ready to deliver to my much appreciated Customers. Therefore, I will share highlights of RepFest with you over the course of the next two weeks and for now I'll just share a few pictures to give you an idea of what is coming from Avon. And what is coming is BIG!!
