Cloud Climbers Newsletter for C2 and C3 - Something to #BLAB About!

(This is the newsletter where I report to my team each campaign. Read it to see how the Cloud Climbers are doing and go here to join us as we climb clouds!)

Good evening to you all!

As you can see, you are receiving a combined newsletter, but at least it is only for two campaigns. 😊 It was getting so close to the end of C3 before I had the C2 newsletter done that I decided to wait a couple of days and do them together.

 1. Sandra Moore HS   $792
 2. Carolyn King   $439

Rewards for the past few campaigns: Congratulations to Cassandra YoungTammy Miller, and Annette Shepherd for meeting the qualifications to receive a rebate on their appointment kits! Also, congratulations to Rene Parker PC and myself for receiving PRP Points for Sales Increase. I also received a Qualifying Recruit Bonus thanks to the efforts of one of my new recruits who had a $150 first or second order and paid for it on time, and I believe that lovely team member would be Annette ShepherdIf I am reading my reports right (sometimes it is a little bit challenging to understand everything reported due to circumstances of various Representatives), we had one team member who earned a Qualifying Kickstart Recruit bonus but Avon was not able to pay it due to that Representative allowing their account to go Inactive/Delinquent. I sure do hate to see that happen to someone, because that's $50 that was earned due to the efforts of their recruit that they will not get. I believe this is the first time that has ever happened to a Cloud Climber, and I hope it is the last. 

Happy Birthday to two team members who celebrated birthdays in January - Yvonne Lassiter and Susan WatkinsHappy Avon Anniversary to several people: Donna Langford (1 year on 1/9), Hattie Bush (38 years on 1/11), Patsy Cloud (17 years on 1/13), Sophya Johnson (6 years on 1/19), and Kelly Fuller (1 year on 1/21). 

I want to welcome two new Cloud Climbers who have both let me know they are already working hard to build their businesses. In fact, I just listened to a message on my answering machine from Barbara telling me that she is "off to a pretty good start", and she definitely is! We are happy to have you on our team, Leslie Clendenonof Dunlap, TN, and Barbara Hambrick of LaFayette, Georgia. May you have many customers and great sales for as long as you desire! 

If there is a #BLAB Workshop in your area, I hope that you will attend. The workshop is free and you will get to network with other Avon Representatives while you learn new things. Some of the cities are already scheduled and others will be added, and you can read more about this in the Avon Beauty Buzz on the home page when you sign in to your account.

That's all for now, because I have an order that has arrived and needs sorting and books that need labeling. Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, it's off to work I go. Let me know how I can help you be more successful in your business, connect with me on Facebook to be added to our team page, and share some information about yourself so I can put you in the Spotlight for our next newsletter.

C3 Best Buys and ESPIRA by Avon!

The big news this campaign is the introduction of Espira, of course. These are the products I've been using since August, because Avon has sent me many of them free so that I could try them and speak from my own experience about how well they work. They sent the Daily Essentials packets (the ones on page 15) for Women, Women 40+, and Men. Since our 31 year old daughter lives with us, Gary, Bonny, and I were able to try them and all of us have been very pleased with them. Now I'm on the Espira 30-Day Metabolism Boost System as part of an Avon challenge and to kick off my goal of finally losing those 8 to 10 lbs. I need to have gone after years of carrying them around. So far I'm down 4 lbs. and I know that I can meet my goal if I stick with healthy eating for the most part. Go here to take the quiz and determine the right Espira products to help you meet your own health goals. 

Here are some of the best buys of the C3 Brochure:

  • Pg. 9, As we begin the new year it is time to reboot our metabolism and the Espira 30-Day System is perfect for this. Invest $126 to kick off better habits. Remember, the Espira products carry the same 90-day money back guarantee as all Avon products.
  • Pg. 14/15, Choose the Espira Multivitamin that is right for you ($12) or choose the Espira Daily Essentials ($30) and have a complete nutritional foundation for our body.

  • Pg. 37, The Purely Glowing Bundle is an $88 value for only $40 and includes two of our most beloved skin care products - Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System. When you add in the Glimmerstick in True Red and the Nourishing Lipstick in Candy Red and top it all off with that gorgeous tote it is truly a WOW deal!
  • Pg. 52/53, Liquid and Powder Foundations are on sale individually at $8.99 each.

Kick Off the New Year with these Five Beauty Resolutions

I was on a bit of a hiatus from this blog during the holidays, but one of my resolutions for 2018 is to get at least one post written each week. I've been taking care of my skin well for the past 31 years I've been an Avon Lady, so it is second nature to me and there is no need for a resolution about that for me. If you are among those who have not been tending to your skin and makeup well, perhaps these resolutions can help you:

Avon has a primer for your eyes, the beloved MagiX Face Perfector to smooth and perfect your skin without or without makeup, Beyond Color Lip Conditioner to do the same for your lips, and an eye primer in the mark. line as well.

Do you have one shade of lipstick that you wear all the time? Some women do, while others of us mix and match shades to come up with the perfect one for what we are wearing or our mood of the day. Either way, Avon has plenty of shades to choose from and Glimmersticks Lip Liners to keep them in place.  

 This is the area where I might need a little bit of improvement - not on the skin care items I use before bed, but on getting my full 8 hours each night. I know it is a struggle for many women (my daughter included) and especially those who must work outside the home while keeping the home fires burning well too. Whether you get enough sleep or not, the Anew night time moisturizers will keep your skin looking radiant. 

 Ah. The feet. Some women pamper themselves with pedicures regularly while the majority of us either slather a bit of foot cream on now and then when we think about it or see our feet are beginning to look and feel pretty rough or neglect them altogether - especially during the winter months when they remain covered for the most part. As we age our feet will begin to show our neglect much more, so it is best to "nip it in the bud" and treat them well. With Avon FootWorks products for every foot care need, there is no excuse for neglect! 

Yes, Avon does have a moisturizer for every skin care need. These are just three of the many options available from your Avon Representative. Go ahead and do some research on your own at my online store or contact me for recommendations.

Now, get going with those resolutions, because I have faith that you CAN accomplish them!

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaigns 24 thru 1 - It's about time!

(This is the newsletter I send to my team each campaign. This time of year I fall a little bit, okay a BIG bit, behind. We've been busy, busy, busy, and we would love to have you join us as we move into 2018.)


Are y'all ready for this? Maybe I should write it in chapters. Ha! No, I won't make it that long but will include the basics and then do another "State of the Cloud Climbers" newsletter in just a few days with final numbers for 2017. I do apologize for not getting the newsletter out each campaign recently, but life and the holidays came along and you all know about that so nothing more need be said. I've definitely enjoyed the holidays, and now I'm struggling to get my focus back to doing "what's important now!" 😊

I was planning to set as my challenge goal for 2018 to have at least one team member in 10 different states, but when I looked at my stats I discovered that we already have at least one team member in 5 states. (We had team members in 3 other states -  Georgia, California, and Mississippi  - but they have gone inactive or inactive/delinquent in the past few weeks.) Setting a goal for 10 states is too low and I shall set it for the BHG (Big Hairy Goal) of 15. Can we do it? Yes, we can!! Here are the states and the number of active Cloud Climbers in each one as of today: Alabama - 77, Tennessee - 10, Colorado - 2, Virginia - 1, and Wisconsin - 1. Now I must brainstorm on ways to reach out to my acquaintances in other states and bring them into the business, and/or make new friends in other states. I will post this BHG on my desk to remind me all year, along with my other BHG of making it back to Rose Circle again in 2018, and making it to Bronze Leader in 2018. What are your BHGs? Please share them so I can post them on my desk and encourage you along the way.

In the Spotlight is Stephanie Johnson, and here is what Stephanie has to share with us about her life: "I am a wife of 19 years to my high school sweetheart. We have 2 girls ages 16 and 9. I am a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in Huntsville Hospital's Neonatal ICU. I have been there for 17 years. I also sub for nurses in the Madison County School System. I started in AVON at 18 and have sold off and on since. I look forward to getting familiar with all of the changes and selling my favorite make-up products again." Stephanie, you have a challenging full time job that I am sure is very rewarding and appreciated.

That's it for now, folks. I'm praying for you, your family, and your business. Please tell me if there are ways I can help you to become more successful and I will do my best to support you. Thanks so much for being a part of the great Cloud Climbers team!
