Toss, toss, toss, toss and then toss

I did it today.  Grandson C called me, and asked what I was doing.  Having just returned from the supermarket I was waiting for my delivery so I was just having a cup of coffee while I waited.

“Want to Toss?”  Now you have to understand that C has not tossed for me for about two months.  I thought he didnt want to do it anymore (not an easy job) and so I just consoled myself with not doing this part of my business.  But alas it was summer vacation and what 13 year old wants to hang out with grandma when he can be playing, sleeping, watching tv or hanging with his friends.

So when he called I was delighted to not only work my business but also to see him.  After the groceries were delivered I called him to tell him I was on the way.  Picked him up and went through the neighborhood with a bag full of 25 books to toss.  When done he asked for more, there went the second bag and finally one more time – the third bag was gone – approximately 60-70 books were tossed today.

What is tossing?  Well as an Avon Rep I purchase brochures for my customers and then some.  I am always looking for new customers so I always order extra.  I give out books to people I meet whether in a store, restaurant, nail salon – I even leave them in laundromats.  But somehow there are always extras that I don’t get to give out……these get tossed.  Into the driveways or on the steps of neighboring houses with my information for people to contact me or even order online.

And that is part of my business – I love it because I get new customers and I get to see my grandson as we go through the neighborhood – we get to talk about our day, how summer is going – to me it is quality time.  I also do mailings but it is the personal aspect of tossing that I like. Of course there are always people who don’t like you tossing books on their lawn or in their driveway – but they are few and far between. Doesn’t everyone like brochures to browse through?  Wouldn’t you?  Contact me to get yours!  Next mailing will be in September!  Contact me today at www.youravon.com/ashapiro or shop my online book here.

And here’s another A Box

Although I am often writing about my Avon business (which I love) I often find myself wondering what my customers would like to see.  I put myself out there and often get calls, texts and emails asking me about various products that I sell and always asking for books to be dropped off or mailed to them.

After some time planning my job of interacting with people and passing out my books and sample I have noticed that everyone is interested in something new.  Yes we all use mascara (usually black) and we all love eyeliner (colors vary) and of course we all need that skin care regimen….but what would really pump you up to go in there and order something new!

And I am finding out that our new A Box has everyone jumping.  A value of $48 but you can get it for only $10…..and a new one is available with every campaign…..I even buy them….was thinking of doing a raffle or a giveaway incentive on the ones I buy – if I can part with them.  I have a video here that maybe will have you looking at the A Box a different way…..maybe you would like one!  Need one?  Order it at www.youravon.com/ashapiro

Dont Miss this Collection!

Are you skeptical about purchasing the A Box?  Did you miss the last one?  If you did, here is why it is so worth the $10 – I even purchased one for myself.  You cant beat the price and yet if you ever wanted to try out some of Avon’s makeup – now is the time to do it.

Unfortunately the first A Box is not available any more so it is on to the next A Box available with Campaign 19 which just started.  Need a book to browse through?  Contact me and I will gladly mail you one …

Here is what you will receive for again –  $10

True Color Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye Liner

True Color Wide Awake Mascara

True Color Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Lotion

Anew Platinum Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 25

Anew Platinum Night Cream

This is a $52 Value but you can purchase it for only $10 with any $40 brochure purchase – you will also get free shipping!

What does your kitchen counter look like?

Delta recommends only 4 items on your counter

 

Coffee maker (of course, a day without coffee?)

Soap dispenser (can do, although I usually use the one in the powder room)

Stand Mixer (no way, baking days are over)

Fruit Bowl (fruit doesnt last long enough to be in a fruit bowl)

So that leaves me with only 2 items on my counter BUT where is the toaster oven, and the microwave?

Ok that makes 4 since I eliminated 2……BUT I also have my knives in a block, my container of tea, sugar bowl, coffee cup holder, and since my counter is small to begin with – no room..actually a little working area to make a sandwich or two.  I often clean off my counter of unnecessary items only to bring them out again because they are used…..every day…..so why go through the trouble of putting them in an out of the closet – which is jammed already.  I really need to rethink my kitchen counters…..but it is so much easier to leave the cookies out on the counter then to climb to get the out of the closet every time a grandchild asked for them!

What does your kitchen counter look like?

Clear Skin

I am one of those people you hate – I have always had clear skin.  But many of my friends didnt and still dont….but Avon has an answer for that.  One of my customers just bought 7 tubes….so it must be working.

Clearskin – people are raving about it….oil-absorbing mineral clay masks draws out pore-clogging dirt and oil like a magnet..

There are daily cleansers, astringents, overnight treatments, acne pads and scrubs.  And now in this campaign you can get a dual-ended blackhead remover #free with any 2 purchases….Shop by online brochure and go directly to page 70-71 to see this offer….

 

Invest $25. Start your own business

Sounds good?  Well you can do it.  I did it and love my job.  I am the boss, I make my own hours and I meet the most interesting people.  If I get up in the morning and dont want to work – well, I dont work.  Cant get any better than that.

With that $25 investment you get full size products, samples, books and a free website.  It’s ready to put your name on it – and it is connected to social media so you can advertise your goods.  Not only makeup but also fashion, creams, jewelry, shoes and even household items.  There is something for everyone of your customers.

And you also get a mentor – someone who will be with you every step of the way.  Even if you are across the country…with technology today I keep in touch with my team via email, text and social media.  I have a great team and would like to make it grow so that we all do great in this business.
