Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 26, 2019


I'm sure all of you are busy, busy, busy, so I will make this newsletter brief. We are still working on building our number of team orders for each campaign, with a goal of 60% activity. I didn't put a lot of thought into my goal, or I would have set it just a little lower, but 60% it is and will remain. 🙂 We've had 53% activity a couple of times recently, which is pretty good for a team of 81 Reps.*, but in C26 we only had 39% activity. 😳 I sure hope we do better in C1! 

Top 10 in Sales for Campaign 26

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $701
 2. Rene Parker PC   $678  (Way to go toward the PC goal!)
 3. Ramona Hyman   $396  (Great campaign, Ramona!)
 4. Leslie Clendenon PC   $353  (Good work!)
 5. Benetta Staten   $312  (Nice!)
 6. Magalis Justiniano   $302  (Looks good!)
 7. Hattie Bush   $272
 8. Linda Wardell   $196
 9. Vicky White   $190
10. Steffanie Erdelt   $187

Since Campaign 26 would normally end the cycle for the year, I thought I'd go ahead and post the Cycle to Date Top 10. Of course, this year Avon is extending our cycle for Award Sales to the last day of the year, which means that if you turn in your Campaign 2 order early, it will also count toward your goal if you are aiming for President's Club or Premier to lock in extra earnings for 2020.

Top 10 in Sales for the Cycle to Date

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $30,466  (I can only claim Rose Circle until the end of the year. 😭)
 2. Leslie Clendenon PC   $11,986  (Locked in for PC for 2020!)
 3. Margo Prytz PC   $10,298  (Hit PC and will earn at the 40% level on Beauty Sales for all of 2020!)
 4. Rene Parker PC  $9,728  (Only $272 to go and I know you can do it!) 
 5. Phyllis Smith   $6,118  (Locked in for Premier level, so will earn 30% on Beauty Sales for 2020!)
 6. Gladys Faulk   $5,823  (Congratulations on hitting Premier level and locking in your 30% for 2020!)
 7. Amy Layne   $5,576  (Congratulations to you on hitting Premier level!)
 8. Vicky White   $4,426  (You are only $574 away from Premier level, so I hope the next 2 campaigns will get you there!)
 9. Linda Wardell   $4,152  (It is still possible for you to hit Premier level, with a little extra push!)
10. Rosanna Cassidy   $3,590  

In the past I contacted my team members who had past due accounts to remind them of the amounts past due. This would only be for those of you who are not required to pay for your orders when you place them, of course. I had not been doing that for quite some time, but after a group call with Dee Power last night, I realized that I was doing you a disservice by not sending that reminder, since some of the past dues have likely just forgotten to pay their bill and didn't realize it was past due. I don't like to see any of you get late fees added to your accounts, so I'm going to start texting or emailing reminders again and I sent out a few of them this morning. 

Have a great weekend! Thanks for all that you do to provide service to your customers each campaign.

*If you are coached by Dee Power and you look at the "Best" reports she sends out, you will see that some teams have 100% activity. However, those teams are generally very small - perhaps only 5 Reps or so.

This Avon year is a bit unusual, because Campaign 1 will finish before the new year begins. In fact, I'll be turning in my Campaign 2 order before the new year begins!

Cyberweek Has Begun!

Did you enjoy your Black Friday shopping? Or are you, like me, a shopper who avoids the crowds and shops from my seat at home? If you are the at home kind, this is YOUR week to get the deals and the freebies from Avon! As you can see in the first picture, when you shop my online store for direct delivery from Avon, you can get free shipping on a $20 order or free shipping and 20% off of a $45 order by using the code AVONCYBER

If you truly love Avon products and want to stock up on your favorite skin care products, purchase our new CHI Hair Care products, or buy presents for the family and friends, your order is likely to go over $65 and you can choose one of the free gift sets (Wow! Just look at the value of each one!!) using the code attached to each one. (Please notice that the free gift is only available if your order is over $65 once your 20% discount is applied.) Are you a fan of Avon makeup? Use MAKEUP to get the first set. Is Skin So Soft a staple in your bathroom and bedtime routine? Use the code BATH to get a fantastic set of SSS products. If you have been using Avon Skin Care for a long time but would like to try a few new products, or if you love our skin care items already and would like to have some travel sizes, then SKIN is the code for you.

Choose carefully, and come back again to choose again, because it's not just Cyber Monday, with Avon it's Cyber Week

My Newsletter for My Avon Team for Campaign 24


Let's start with the special notification and get that out of the way in case some of you stop reading after the first paragraph. If you are in our Facebook group for the team, you may have already seen the video that I did about this yesterday. Dee Power, my coach and the coach for many of you as well, has challenged a few of us in Leadership to increase our order count for the next four campaigns. It's a challenge that several other coaches in the southeast region are also participating in, because the west region is far surpassing the southeast region in order count right now and that just will not do! Our team is actually doing the best for Dee's challenge participants, since we had 53% activity in Campaign 24 with 41 out of 76 Cloud Climbers placing orders. Keep up the good work, because our challenge goal for Campaign 25 is 60% activity! In order to encourage those who have not been placing orders regularly to get orders turned in this campaign, I'll be reaching out to you a couple of extra times in each campaign to let you know how we are doing. I will also be contacting those who have not yet placed orders to encourage them to do so. What's in this for you? Well, first of all, the satisfaction of knowing you helped our team make its goal. Second, the money that you will earn by encouraging your customers to place orders! And third, if we make our goal of 60% activity in Campaign 25, I'll put the names of all who placed orders into a drawing for some cold, hard, cash!! You see, when we make our $8 goal, like we did in Campaign 24, I have extra money to give away. 

RecognitionCongratulations to Leslie Clendenon PC for making President's Club in Campaign 24 and (re)guaranteeing herself 40% earnings on all beauty products and 25% earnings on fashion & home products for all of 2020! Congratulations to the entire team and thanks so much to all 41 of you who had orders in Campaign 24, for helping us make the $8,000 goal for our team. Granted that a big chunk of that was because of my fall fundraiser sales, but we still could not have made it without all those orders that were turned in by the 41 CCs that had orders. You are SOOO appreciated by me!!!

Top 10 in Sales for Campaign 24

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $3,034   (Only because of the ALANA fundraiser I do each fall.)
 2. Leslie Clendenon PC  $914   (Woo hoo! PC once again, with YTD sales of $10,841!!)
 3. Rene Parker PC   $762   (Only $1,375 to go to PC and you have 4 more campaigns to get it!)
 4. Margo Prytz Pr  $742   (I'll be congratulating you on making PC very soon - $661 to go!)
 5. Amy Budisalich   $364
 6. Amy Layne   $275
 7. Phyllis Smith Pr  $273
 8. Vicky White   $213
 9. Rosanna Cassidy   $196
10. Steffanie Erdelt   $168

Be sure to make use of the customer reminder that I sent you earlier this week to encourage your customers to place orders. We all need reminders quite often, and your customers do as well. There have been many times that I've had customers tell me "I just let the date slip by me", even with reminders and I tell them to tell me what they need even if the date has slipped by and I'll get it. Sometimes I use my online store to order right away and sometimes they are willing to wait on the next order. Be sure to tell them in your reminder (whether it is email, phone, text, Messenger, or in person) that we can only go back one campaign for back orders now so they will realize the importance of getting their orders in on time. Consistent contact, is the key to getting those orders!

Until next time, I remain....

It's Here! The Biggest Book of the Year!!

Avon's biggest brochure of the year has arrived! Most of our Christmas offerings are in this brochure, so don't delay in ordering as some items may sell out early. You have two choices for shopping - either for my delivery or for direct delivery from Avon. Even if you plan to order for my delivery, you will want to go to my online store and click on the big red bow to see some special offers, including a sweepstakes you can enter. There will be 100 winners, and I would love for YOU to be one of them!
  • Pg. 9, Surprise! Avon put The A Box in the front of the brochure this campaign in addition to on the back cover. This one is all about Classic Glam with 4 full size products (total value is $40) for only $10 with your $40 purchase. Take a look at the box cover, because it features a gift set Avon sold many years ago. 
  • Pg. 11, The Limited Edition Iconic Avon Lipsticks are back again this year with all new shades and packaging. So gorgeous and only $9 each! Don't miss the vintage 1967 ad featured on the opposite page, because some of you may have seen the items featured there in your youth. I recall very well the Topaz sachet jar just to the left of center at the bottom of the picture, because my mama had one. The travel size fragrance to the right of it looks very familiar too, and I believe it had a roll-on type top. 
  • Pg. 21, Woo hoo! The 5-piece sets of Holiday Hand Creams and Lip Balms have arrived. The items can be purchased individually, but you get the best deal when you purchase the sets for $8 each. Great for stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, to hand out little goodies to your "besties" or your co-workers, or for holiday gathering hostess gifts. My personal way of using these is to put a bunch of them in cute baskets and take them to my family Christmas gatherings for everyone to pass around and grab one or two. Even some of the guys pick lip balms! 
  • Pgs. 22/23, These Skin So Soft sets feature fragrances (Winter Lavender or Wintersoft) only available at this time of year. Each $15 set contains Body Wash, Hand Cream, and Body Butter, and they make lovely hostess gifts or gifts for special friends. Of course, you can always treat yourself, too!
  • Pg. 24, Limited Edition Dopp Kits for the men in your life in two classic best selling scents - Black Suede and Wild Country - for only $22 each. These good sized bags will hold the three products included plus a whole lot more essentials for men. 
  • Pg. 26, Have you seen those new Silicone rings that are appearing on fingers across the country right now? I just became aware of them recently and I see that we have a black one for men right now. The price is much better than some prices I've seen - only $9.99 - and it is available in 5 sizes. These rings are great for men who lead a very active lifestyle or work with their hands in ways that could damage metal rings.
  • Pgs. 14-15, 28-37, 44-45, and more. Jewelry, jewelry, jewelry! Some of it has that holiday vibe, while other pieces are wearable all year. There are gift sets and their are single pieces, and most are priced under $20. 
  • Pg. 101-105, Anew Clinical Skin Care items are any 2 for $42.
  • Pg. 119, Glimmersticks are any 3 for $10, so time to stock up!
  • Pgs. 126-130, Magix Tint, Magix Prime, Magix Wand, Makeup Brushes, Contour Stick, Pressed Powder, Cream to Powder Foundation, Highlighting Powder and Stick, Dazzle Drops, and various Blushes are all Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price.
  • Pgs. 139-143, All the Far Away, Haiku, Imari, and Rare fragrances are $13.99 each.
  • Pg. 178, You can now buy your Toothpaste and Toothbrushes from Avon! I'm hearing some really good reports on the Blanc Charcoal Toothpaste. By the way, if you are worried about a black toothpaste, don't be. This one is "blanc" meaning that it is white. 
  • Pg. 179, Speaking of perfect hostess gifts, Avon's Veilment Natural Spa Collection has three beautiful variations - Black Rose, Dead Sea Salt, and Himalaya Pink Salt. Any one of them would add a touch of beauty to the bathroom decor and the large pump bottles are only $12 each. I've been using Black Rose and can verify that a little goes a long way, so these bottles will last awhile.
  • Pg. 185, CHI Essentials have arrived! CHI is a professional hair care leader and we have partnered with them to bring you a unique blend of certified organic botanicals for healthy-looking hair that is sulfate and PABA-free. Four products unique to Avon that are suitable for every skin type. 
  • Last, but certainly not least, starting on Pg. 210 you will find all the Avon x The Face Shop Collaboration products. Please study these pages and learn more about these Korean beauty products that have been around for a long time but have just come to Avon with our purchase by LG H&H. Remember that we have a 90 day guarantee, so don't be afraid to try something new and return it if you aren't satisfied. 
There are oh so many more products that I would love to talk about, but it is time to move on so I'll just let you shop the brochure's 227 pages to see what else we are offering for Christmas and beyond.

Avon Bronze Leader

p.s. It is not too late to open your own Avon account and purchase all these items at a 40% discount, even if you are only ordering for yourself. Go here to learn more and get started.

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 23, 2019


I''m getting the Campaign 22 Newsletter out before the end of Campaign 23. Yay, me!!! Ha! Life and obligations have slowed down just a little bit, so I've just about got my business obligations all back on schedule. I'm enjoying fall, have dedicated myself to eating less sugar and getting more exercise (I actually charged up my Fitbit and I'm wearing it) and now that I've told you that about the less sugar and more exercise, you can be my accountability partners and just bug me now and then to say "Are you still on track?" Maybe by Thanksgiving I will have finally lost these few extra pounds that I carry in my midsection and be able to look decent in the clothes hanging in my closet that I avoid wearing now. I was listening to a Prager U Candice Owens interview yesterday and one thing that was said really stuck with me because it is so true. "Your life is your fault." We all need to take responsibility for our own lives and do the hard things that need to be done to get them where they need to be. That quote is true for our businesses, too. We all have different circumstances, but what we do with our circumstances is our responsibility/fault. Speaking of which, please read what Lydia Riley ( wrote yesterday about her Avon story. She has done some pretty amazing things in the past 19 years because of Avon, and you don't have to be at rock bottom, like she was, in order to build big. You just have to take responsibility (if building big is what you want and need) and do the hard things to get you where you want to be. 

Top 10 in Sales for Campaign 22

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $1,123
 2. Phyllis Smith   $522
 3. Margo Prytz   $450
 4. Leslie Clendenon PC  $344
 5. Carolyn King   $200
 6. Vicky White   $185
 7. Amy Layne   $179   (2nd generation under Leslie Clendenon)
 8. Kathy McAlpin   $170
 9. Linda Wardell   $154   (2nd generation under Rene Parker)
10. Amy Budisalich   $153

Top 10 in Sales Cycle to Date

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $24,572   ($10,428 needed to make Rose Circle)
 2. Leslie Clendenon PC   $8,997   ($1,003 needed to make President's Club)
 3. Margo Prytz   $7,660   ($2,340 needed to make President's Club)
 4. Rene Parker PC   $7,544   ($2,456 needed to make President's Club)
 5. Gladys Faulk   $5,313
 6. Phyllis Smith   $5,115
 7. Amy Layne   $4,560
 8. Vicky White   $3,771
 9. Linda Wardell   $3,338
10. Cynthia Blake   $3,235

Don't forget that we now have until the end of the year, so basically through Campaign 2, to make our goals. That means six more campaigns to go and it means there is just a slim possibility that I'll hit Rose Circle again but that the top four Cloud Climbers listed above should definitely make President's Club this year!! 
There are currently three Cloud Climbers who have team members, and they are: Leslie Clendenon with three team members, Rene Parker with one team member, and Margo Prytz with three team members. Our newest addition is a recruit of Margo's, and we welcome Andrea Gholar of Justice, IL, to the Cloud Climbers!

When I sent out the Customer Reminder for C23, I said that anyone who told me "I used the email, so put me in the drawing" would go into a drawing for a surprise from me. I was hoping to hear from at least a few of you, and I did get one "Thank you", but no one said they used the information in the email, so nobody went in the drawing. I sure hope that doesn't mean that nobody even reads my emails. 😭 The campaign is not over yet, so maybe I'll still hear from someone yet and get to give something away. 

I'm going to drink an Espira Plant Power Protein shake and get back outside and enjoy some of this beautiful weather. I've only got 3,616 steps in so far, so I need to join my daughter in what she calls a "joggerwalkie". Have a great evening!
