The Avon Chronicles: Happy Thanksgiving đŸŚƒđŸŚƒđŸŚƒ


First, I’d like to thank you all for reading and following along. I’d also like to wish you all a special Happy Thanksgiving 🦃!

As I was scrolling down my Facebook timeline or newsfeed, I saw so many people posting why they were thankful. I have to admit, for the first time in a long time, I felt deeply inspired. It’s been so long since I’ve seen so much positivity on Facebook. It is truly refreshing. Facebook was at the point that it was depressing and unnerving. I eventually felt the need to take a step back from Facebook and a few other social media outlets. 

It can be quite discouraging when you’re trying to focus on your inner-self and being happy. It can be even more discouraging when you’re trying to either launch, grow or maintain your business. The recent presidential election really brought out sides of people I never knew existed. I began to question everything and the authenticity of everyone. How can someone smile in your face and post such hateful things? Why does the world never seem happy?

What is real? What is fake?

So many questions and I realized that I was questioning my own faith. My own beliefs. My own will power and triumphs. I opened Facebook today just to post the above Happy Thanksgiving picture and became immediately engulfed by all of the Thanksgiving posts, reasons why they were thankful and well wishes to others. It’s truly beautiful. Today makes us take a step back from our cumbersome lives and appreciate the many blessings we have.

Hence, why I am writing today. After a social media break, I feel relieved, revived and inspired. I don’t always talk about my success with my Avon business as I’m rather timid and humble but it has given me a great deal to be grateful.

Why am I grateful for my Avon business?

1) I have the flexibility of working my business from anywhere. Right now, I’m writing this blog from my new iPhone 7 plus (Jet Black for those wondering). As long as I have internet, I can run my business from anywhere. Even without internet, I can still run my business in means of placing calls/texts, receiving orders and helping my team members. What other business do you know that allows you to run your business from your phone?

2) Tied into reason number one — I can also work my full-time job and my Avon business. It’s not impossible! I have a team of over 180 and I have already personally sold well over $10,000 since the year began. Since mid- February, my team has sold well over $110,000! I run majority of my business online though I do service a few local businesses on the weekends. That’s it! My business is running autopilot most of the time.

3) I know this business isn’t for everyone. Not just Avon but direct sales in general. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, persistence, and discipline to be your own boss. You need a lot of willpower and the ability to overcome adversity. Statistics show that many people quit in their first year. I’m proud to announce that I just reached my one year anniversary with Avon!

4) It’s also said that most businesses are not profitable in the first year. As some of you may know, I began taking my Avon business seriously in January due to student loan debt. I’m proud to report that my Avon business checking account has a positive balance and Avon pays my 2016 Nissan Maxima’s car note, insurance and a few other things! With less money coming out of my work check, I can free up some of that student loan debt. Not bad for working my Avon business part-time, right?

5) I’m controlling my destiny. My goals are far from over. Eventually, I want to work my Avon business full-time and I’m taking those actions to be able to do so. I hate the uncertainty of knowing whether or not I’ll have a job, not having complete autonomy and succumbing to even the most ridiculous request. 

To me, in my first year, I’m doing fabulous with my Avon business! With more experience and knowledge, I know my second year is only going to get better! And that gives me something to work towards! I’m very hopeful and excited about what’s in store.

The Avon Chronicles: It is A Big Deal

c20closeout
Avon Campaign 20, 2016 Stats

It is A Big Deal

My biggest competition is myself. I always seek to push myself farther and harder than I’ve gone before. It’s a blessing and a curse really. At times, it’s great because you accomplish so much but then when it rains, it really pours. It tumbles down harder than a stack of bricks. You start thinking about where you want to be and what you should have accomplished based upon YOUR timing.

Often, I look at Avon’s leadership levels and I always think about where I should be by now. Nothing is ever good enough. I always look up, up, and up. I’m not one to dwell on the past so I have no choice but to look forward. My dream is to make it all the way to the top of Avon’s leadership chart so naturally, I’m never fully content with my current standing. It can be so depressing at times.

I was blinded by potential. I never sat back and thought about what I had accomplished because I knew it wasn’t the amount I needed  if that makes any sense — one of the downfalls of the overly ambitious. I think at some point, we all encounter this issue regardless of the field. You want something so bad that it becomes all you can see and when you don’t see it, you get an overwhelming sense of failure 😦

At our district sales meetings, my DSM would always introduce me to the rest of the attendees. She’d put me in the spotlight and tell the team what all I’ve been able to accomplish since joining Avon. She’d tell the team how great I was because I conduct majority of my business online. I always thought like “yea, whatever, no big deal”. At times, I really thought she did it just to motivate me to keep going — something she does with all newbies.

The entire room would express their oohs and aahs and I even had representatives ask how I do/did it. A few ladies took down my number so we could chat later. Even with this, I really thought it was just their way of making a girl feel welcomed, ya know? Like this is nothing. Everyone does this. There are women that have sold Avon longer than I have been alive so what’s the big deal?

These district sales meetings quickly turned into Question and Answers segments. Of course, they’d all want to know how many people I had on my team and my challenge of being an e-rep as they like to call them. Some even flat out told me that it couldn’t be done :/ I’ll be honest. There were many more naysayers than people that believed that I could do it — not because they didn’t believe in me, but because they hadn’t seen it done before or often. So immediately, I wrote them off believing they didn’t want to work their business. It was the only rationale I could develop to keep me motivated and focused.

Our sales cycle is 2-weeks long and the final reporting day is what we like to call Close Out Tuesday (term used by leaders). Close Out Tuesday’s gives all stats for sales and leadership. Each campaign, I’d look at my stats, Campaign 20’s stats (shown below), updated on 9/27/16. Not being arrogant but I got used to seeing my name on the top for recruits so I became indifferent. I simply told myself others didn’t want to be in leadership. I’m not in Top 10 Sales Increase because it compares the previous year’s stats (I haven’t been selling for a year).c20closeout

Still, I was able to write all of this off. Talk about a case of serious denial. As some of you may know, I was 1 of 22 leadership representatives asked to help Avon develop it’s new business management tool. As a result, Avon flew me out to the New York headquarters in August. I got to meet some of the big “wigs” in Avon corporate but I also got to meet some of the top leaders.

I’ll never forget the day I was at work and received a text message from a New Jersey area code. In the message, he introduced himself, his role with Avon and then invited me to New York. I was so in shock and in denial that I thought I was dreaming. I called and texted just about everyone to share the news. I was ecstatic! Believe it or not, I was still in denial. Not as much but there was still a cast of doubt. This could not be happening! It took arriving at the airport to realize this was really real! It brings tears to me eyes just thinking about it.

While in New York, I learned more about the Avon leaders and I was the baby there both age but also tenure. They all seemed floored away but my progress. I was at a table with ladies that were responsible for selling millions in a year and they were more interested in me! We picked each others’ brains and I realized it has taken them years to get to that level and here I am, crying because I haven’t accomplished it in 9 months. Sounds silly just writing it but that’s what happens when you’re an overachieve with unrealistic goals.

You begin to realize how if you aren’t careful, you set yourself up for failure. I’m #10 in the district for sales and that wasn’t good enough for me. Number 10 in sales and it wasn’t good enough for me. I had to repeat it just so I could really see how silly I sound. I am in the top 13% of sales representatives in my district in my first year. Number 1 for recruits.

No one ever tells you that joining Avon is a life lesson. You eventually change/mold not just professionally, but personally. I was so focused on getting to the top that I forgot to acknowledge and even appreciate what I had accomplished. As I speak to other representatives, I begin to realize that they’d love to be in my position.

I don’t believe any of the top 10 sales reps have less than 5 years in the field and here I am, not even a year and I’m there. I’m beginning to realize it is a big deal.

The Avon Chronicles: Kickin’ it with the Avon Lady

therocksuccess
Dwayne Johnson – Success isn’t always about “Greatness”

It’s taken some time for me to release this blog. I began writing about 2 weeks ago but kept going back and forth on whether or not to release it. Not sure what you all will think, so I’ll start off by apologizing in advance for the informality of this blog but I want to get real down, dirty and uncut. I am the Avon Lady. I am not perfect. I’ll be the first person to say it and sometimes, I feel as though it’s expected of us.

My face-to-face customers know me. I laugh, I joke and I laugh some more. Of course, I take things seriously but not as serious as you’d want me to be. Life is too short. I’d probably piss you off with my level of cool-headed demeanor, sarcasm and uncanny ability to make light of any situation. It’s hard to display the true me sometimes due to technology and the desire to want to be professional but the truth is, I’m a real person. I do real people stuff and make real people mistakes. Who would’ve thought, right?

Being quite the perfectionist, it’s hard to say that aloud but it’s the truth. I mess up more times than I got it right BUT I learn from my mistakes. A smart person once said that a smart man learns from his mistakes but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. Definitely not a man but the genius that said it has a point. Will I continue to make mistakes? Yes, it’s part of the learning process. No one is perfect and I hate the need to seem so perfect on the internet. Do I curse? Yes! Do I drink? Hell yes! Most sales people do. So do you want to get to know me? Here’s your chance to opt out (click here to be taken to my team’s website).

Let’s “kick it” with the Avon Lady for a few. My name has been shown on Avon’s national recognition boards for various reasons and I even helped develop our new business management tool. In August, Avon flew me out to New York. People believe that I rolled out of the bed into this success. I’m nowhere close to where I want to be with my Avon business but I’ve worked my ass off to get to this point — and trust me, it is a lot of ass.

If this is your first time chiming in, I’ll sum it up: in about 8 months, I’ve grown my team over 180 strong in 33 different states and am President’s Club (meaning I sell at least $10,000 in a year). I’m in the top 13% of sales representatives in my district and I’m the #1 recruiter in my district. All of my recruiting is online and half of my sales are face-to-face. I teach my team to do the same and mentor my sales leaders to help them teach their teams how to do the same. 

I hear so many people saying that they’re not like me. They can’t do this, they can’t do that. And they act as if I have some supernatural ability or strength. The truth is they don’t want to do this —not bad enough, anyway.

If you really want something, you’re going to get it. Excuses have no room in my little world. People make time for the things they want to do; people they want to see and places they want to go. If Oprah announced she was giving more cars, the lot would be filled in less than an hour!

As much as I want to, I do not work Avon full-time yet. Many people don’t know that. I’ve even had customers unknowingly down other reps that were “trying to be a part-time rep”, not realizing I am a part-time rep. Customers have flat out told me that it’s not possible while commending me for being a “true” Avon lady, whatever the hell that means.

Selling Avon is not hard but it can be frustrating at times if you don’t have the right expectations. This is no get rich quick scheme. You won’t go to sleep Monday and wake up with thousands of customers by Tuesday. It’s just not going to happen. It requires consistency. Consistent efforts yield consistent results. Each day, you plant seeds. Water them and the plants will grow.

This is how I get stuff done:

Each day, I work on some aspect of my business. I don’t spend all day. I devote mornings to following up with anyone that has expressed interest in becoming an Avon representative (takes less than an hour). Shortly after that I reach out to my team and either address issues or show recognition for their efforts. Team Believers is so awesome! Because I’m mainly online, I make sure to schedule my social media post to keep a consistent presence online. I’m not super confusing or complicated. I develop a simple schedule and I stick to it.

I didn’t want to keep you all long as I’m sure you have other things to do. I just wanted to welcome you all to my world and explain the purpose of my Avon Chronicles.
