I’ll be the first to admit that yes I’ve been “let go” from a job or 2 before.
Some of us have gone through it during our younger years. Others have just stumbled upon some rough times and couldn’t get the job we really wanted. Reasons such as background checks, no transportation, no childcare, low on cash, low self confidence, no support….and I could go on and on naming the things that plague many of us in the area of working for a living.
Over the years we learn how to market ourselves and sell ourselves a little bit better for the next employer. We learn how to put the best foot forward so that future employers can have faith in our abilities. We learn how to ask the right questions in an interview and what to wear. We learn how to sell ourselves so that others can believe in us. And many times, our hard work goes unnoticed or gets rejected. Some of these lessons we’re still learning.
Ladies. I have been there. I’m not just an Avon Rep, but I’m also a single Mom with bills, responsibilities and stress. If you have children, you understand that we want to be an example for our kids. We want to be there for the important stuff instead of always having to work. If you don’t have kids, or if you’re just married and want to work from home, you are fully equipped to put all of the hard work into YOU. All of the hard work we put into this life, I’d much rather give it to myself and not someone else.
I didn’t make much money my first few months with Avon. You wanna know why? I got excited about my discount and started buying up all this cool skin care and makeup. I had a beautiful spread of lipstick, eyeliners, mascara, eye shadows and skincare that cost me next to nothing. I wasn’t trying to sell to anyone. I wasn’t trying to hand out any brochures. I hadn’t made a social media page for my Avon. I was just enjoying my discount and having a ball getting whatever I wanted.
I may not have been making much money at first with Avon. But that’s not how I looked at it. I was saving over $150/mo in beauty products just by shopping from my own estore. Items like bath soaps for the house, hand soaps, hand lotions, Mosquito Repellent (Bug Guard), kitchenware, eyeliner, lipstick, foundation, blush, highlighting/contour palettes, moisturizers, daily vitamins, accessories, perfumes, toys for kids, etc.
After I stopped collecting lipstick shades at $2 a pop, I had to slow down and realize that I could be selling this same lipstick to my coworkers for $5.99. And the hand lotions that I was collecting at my desk (the ones everyone kept borrowing) I could be selling those too. Each time someone complimented me on my skin, my shoes, my outfit, my handbag, or my perfume, were all potential sales. I stopped goofing off and started bringing my brochures to work.
2019 UPDATE: AVON HAS GONE DIGITAL NOW SO NEW REPS DO NOT HAVE TO BUY BROCHURES!
It didn’t feel like sales though. It felt like I was just sharing with friends. I started my Avon page and began to think a little harder about how I would market my new beauty business. Plus I liked getting free stuff. My Avon commission was 40% and after putting in my orders, I could still buy my things without paying much of anything for them.
This is where you begin to do two things as an Avon Rep: make more money, and fall in love more with Avon. When you recruit at least 1 person and they place an order, you achieve your first leadership level and in many cases, earn 40-50% commission. I started this blog (among others) and taught myself some tricks and tools to get more successful with my Avon business. I wondered where other ladies were selling Avon online and I looked to one of the most popular platforms in 2019: INSTAGRAM.
I wanted to talk to and highlight these ladies because I was so inspired by them, and so I did. There is not another Avon group in the nation by our name. Exclusively Gorgeous Avon Reps are United States Avon Reps who sell Avon online.
