Start your own business today!

I’ve been getting messages the last two days inquiring about joining Avon and selling to make a 40% profit.  Yes, Avon is having a special right now – and it will not last – where you can make 40% profit from all your sales.


And the more you sell, the higher your profit will be.  I am also hearing that some of you do not have the start up fee.  Avon has given us three choices: $25 or $50 or $100.  One of my team members also was hesitant to spend that money….so I told her to put aside a few dollars each week special for Avon and when she had the amount she wanted, then join.  Well, she listened and went for the $100 kit because it gave her more for her money.  But you can buy the $25 kit – it still has so much more.

If you are really serious in making Avon your business – once you join you also get a free website and continuous help not only from me but from groups on  FB and youtube recordings, giving you great ideas to continue and grow your business.  Wouldnt you like to be your own boss?

Ask me how or if you have already decided go straight to www.startavon.com and sign up using reference code ashapiro

Baby It’s Cold Outside

OK, it is March and we have been having 70 degrees like crazy and I even am looking for sandals lately.  So all of a sudden not only does mother nature dump some snow on us (not a lot and not crippling snow) but she also sends some low low chilling weather – 2 degrees? really?  Now this is – stay in  the house – weather.  But I hate doing that because my business depends on me getting outside and mingling with people.  So I ventured out this morning to the nail salon, dunkin donuts, pharmacy and supermarket..and good thing I did because my supply of brochures I leave at these places had dwindled from last week.

So I left a new supply of books and ventured back home to warm up.  They are now saying we are in for a foot of snow come Tuesday.  So today I will package up some old books for throwing on Monday.  Maybe today I will also try on some new products from Avon – that face mask looks good and while I am at it I might even dye my hair……


Would you like to try this face mask?  Summer is right around the corner….get your summer face on by going to my website and checking it out at www.youravon.com/ashapiro

Ding dong…they are here

Today is laundry day and clean up day..I do these things slowly but they eventually get done.  So I am up from the laundry room and have decided to sit and have a cup of tea and just at that time the doorbell rings.

I hate answering the door as much as I hate answering the house phone.  Family has a key to my door and therefore I knew it was not family.  But the best thing I ever did was to install a monitor for my front door.  Click a button and see who is there.

The night before it was two young men going door to door selling Fios.  I have Optimum and no intention of changing.  Today it was a young man and woman and instead of going downstairs to answer the door – I IGNORED THEM.  Have no idea what they wanted and was just fed up with people ringing my doorbell trying to make me change my cable, or electric, my windows, etc.


This must sound funny coming from an Avon Lady who does door to door sales….but I am not that type of person.  I never ring bells, I never make annoying calls and I certainly dont pressure my customers into buying.  I do leave brochures at houses, I do emails (which you can unsubscribe from) and I do mail out brochures to potential customers.

I give out samples along with my business card and without pressuring people to buy – I do get customers.  And then I reward these customers – by giving extra samples along with a thank you card…..I appreciate the customers I have and look forward to servicing more customers. In my last campaign I gave everyone a free lip balm – just for being my customer.

I invite all to shop at my online store which may be easier for most customers…..www.youravon.com/ashapiro or like my Facebook page where I post the latest deals from Avon – www.facebook.com/AvonByAgnes

Now back to my tea….
