From Chicago to the Bahamas!

You know what’s good about going to the Bahamas? Earning an all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas! Check out the pictures from my trip!

Hopefully, you had time to review the video above. Avon aired the video of me on June 5, 2017 and it was such an honor to be featured! Last week, my dad called and asked if I could believe all of this was happening. He said “I bet you didn’t think you’d be doing all of this with Avon.” As you know, I served on an advisory board to help develop a technology for Avon sales leaders, traveled to New York, currently serving on advisory board for another special project and now, the Bahamas! Don’t get me wrong, I’m a dreamer. I have high goals and the determination of a lion stalking its prey — but in truth, no, I was NOT expecting any of this and couldn’t have imagined it in my wildest dreams.

You have to understand something about me. I am what they used to call “Chicago’s Inner City Youth.” They probably don’t call me that anymore because I’m not a teenager but in short, this means that I’m from the ‘hood. I didn’t grow up in the suburbs. I am a product of Chicago Public Schools, both grammar and high school. My schools weren’t #1 in the state, city or even neighborhood for that matter. I grew up on 79th street. I say all of that to say this, my upbringing wasn’t the most affluent. My parents made sure I had the necessities and even a few luxuries but when I graduated, I didn’t have a BMW waiting in the driveway for me. I got my first job at 16 and have been working ever since.

In my household, we were taught to go to school, get a good education and then, get a good job. I can’t fault them. It was all they knew. Back in their days, that would be enough to provide for one’s family; however, in 2017, not so much. There are people working 2-3 jobs just to remain afloat. I just couldn’t see that as my calling — working…at least not for someone else. When I was a teen, I tried to start my own business with affiliate marketing. I didn’t get far but then again, I was using an old Brother notebook that didn’t even have a color display (showing my age) and didn’t know much about the internet or marketing.

You see — this is why this trip is so important to me. For the first time, I am doing what I feel is my calling —- living life to the fullest. Not asking anyone for permission. Not sacrificing my personal health for a job. Not dreading waking up every morning at 5 a.m.

So how exactly did I end up in the Bahamas? Thanks to Avon’s Vacation Like a Boss incentive. One of the beauties about joining Avon is having an Avon mentor. Mentors help new representatives launch their business. Avon mentors are rewarded if the new team member becomes successful. Mentors receive nothing if the person isn’t successful. Contrary to popular belief, mentors do not receive a dime just for bringing people into the business. During the incentive period, I helped 19 new representatives successfully launch their business and their first orders were each over $150.

I uploaded the pictures below from my trip. The Bahamas was absolutely amazing! The food was delicious! I loved everything I had! The views were beautiful. The sharks were unique 🙂 I got to meet other Avon sales mentors. We laughed, danced, partied and learned about some upcoming, exciting new changes with Avon! Top secret so I can’t spill the beans just yet 🙂

Now, let me tell you why I love this company so much! I arrived in Newark, NJ airport and received an e-mail from the airline that my flight had been cancelled due to the weather. I went to the customer service terminal and as they were informing me that they couldn’t accommodate me due to weather cancellations, I was receiving a call from Avon with hotel accommodations! Now tell me that isn’t amazing! A company that truly cares about its representatives! They could’ve let me spend an awful night in the airport, but they didn’t! It was my first time in New Jersey so I decided to try some lasagna. Absolutely delicious!

Las Vegas: Making Money Never Felt So Good

While most people were in Vegas losing money, I was in Vegas MAKING money. Does your job allow you to take a vacation whenever you want? Wanna know how you can do the same? Got a cell phone/tablet? What’s stopping you?

I’m officially back home in Chicago and OMG!!! What was I thinking?!?!? It’s going to be an average of 85 degrees all week in Las Vegas and here I am — 50 degrees! I can’t believe I left such beautiful weather. Smh…what was I thinking? As you can imagine, I had a wonderful time in Vegas and made sure to try to take as many G-rated pictures as possible lol. If you want to see, check them out below!

Though I’m physically tired from travelling, partying and time zone changes, I’m emotionally and even spiritually charged! I woke up yesterday with a big smile on my face. I am so blessed!

You see while most people were probably in Vegas losing money, I was actually in Vegas making money. No, not by gambling BUT I did win $1.10 lol I’m not the most traditional Avon rep. I’ll tell you that right now. Yes, I do have customers that I visit in-person but not frequently. I service mainly businesses and for my face-to-face customers, I don’t do anything extraordinary — sorry, I find a way to work my business into my regular life. Majority of my business is ran from these two babies here:

I take my cell phone and tablet just about anywhere I go so I can work everywhere I go! Don’t let that whole “work from home” title fool you. Your office is wherever YOU want it to be. Do you have your e-mail account linked to your phone? E-mail these days are just like text messages. So if you don’t, I don’t know why not. All it takes is a couple of minutes to reply and BOOM, you’re done!

While in Vegas, we walked the Strip, went down to Fremont St, watched a magic show, danced with the Jabbawockeez, visited the Mob Museum, rode the On and Off Bus tour, played along with the Virtual Reality tour, visited a few clubs and of course — dinner and drinks (lots of ’em)! No wonder, I was able to take over 200 pictures and even videos! BUT even with all of that, I still gained 6 new team members and received online customer orders!

This is how I MADE money! Yes! I was still enjoying myself. Actually, I was enjoying myself MORE when I realized I was making money.

Realistically speaking, I probably work my business one hour each day and if I’m feeling very risque or took a break the previous day, I may work up to 3 hours! For those of you just thinking that I sit in front of my tablet all day —- noooooo, sorry :/ I don’t but I always make myself available to my team. With technology, it’s so easy. I’m only a call, text, e-mail, Zoom meeting or even Facebook message away 🙂 When you have all of this technology, what is really your excuse? How much did or are you paying for your cell phone? Is it making money for you?

It doesn’t seem like much but every small action leads up to a big reaction. One hour a day adds up. Consistency is key.

I am so thankful for my business. Just recapping, I was able to visit Jamaica, Alabama and New York (August) last year. My business was still in the “baby” stage and was growing. I never missed a beat with my business. Because of this, look at what’s in store this year:

 

  • March – trip to New York
  • April – trip to Las Vegas
  • June – trip to the Bahamas
  • August – trips to Nashville and New Orleans (separate trips)
Now I have to schedule another trip before the year is out 🙂 Hmmm…where should I go? Miami? Los Angeles? Puerto Rico? We’ll see 🙂
