Mom said “No Makeup”

When I was young I wasn’t allowed to wear lipstick much less any other makeup.  I guess way back then you were considered a “loose” girl if you did.  So as a good daughter I listened and didn’t wear anything.  But alas I changed parochial school for a public one and yes, many girls wore makeup….but of course I couldn’t tell if they were loose or not.  So I stuck by what Mom said.  And then I graduated high school.

Those days (oops dating myself) college was not only not necessary but it was something girls just didnt attend.  So off to work it was.  A city job as a secretary – Civil Service Job I think they called it then.  I loved working and meeting new people….and then met a girl who said “Why don’t you wear makeup”?  And then it started.  She introduced me to foundation, mascaraeyeliner and my favorite, lipstick.  Don’t leave home without it.

Recently I have been trying out a Lipstick Crayon which I really love.

Comes in creams or shimmer and right now there is a great sale going on….buy one get one for half off..Check it out today at my e-store…there are 12 shades to pick from…

Small Business People

Every day there seems to be another small business popping up.  People who sell on Etsy or on E-bay all want one thing.  To sell their product and make some money from it.  Next week I will be doing some shopping at a Holiday Bazaar.  There will be about 20 vendors there….all small business owners, who sell from their homes or computers online.  This is how we make our business and support ourselves.

Have you ever thought of becoming a small business owner?  Are you crafty?  I started out beading and made bracelets, necklaces and  earrings along with keychains and other various beaded items.  Loved doing it and had success.  But alas, those beads did not do well with hands that became arthritic.  So I looked for another business I could enjoy and came across the selling of Avon products.

I know what you are thinking….I dont want to sell makeup…but Avon is more than makeup.  The best part is it’s your business to sell as you please (with a few rules)…..I sell person to person, I leave books at businesses and I also sell online.  You see, I am always selling….today I left my business cards (with a 10% discount) on cars…

So if you feel you can handle this job and become an Avon Rep – it is so easy to do.  If you are a stay-at-home mom, it is perfect for you.  While that baby sleeps, go on your computer and sell.  Taking a walk in the park, bring those books with you and talk to the other moms….Each day brings you closer to earning the money you want and the money you need….(you know those bills are piling up now that the holidays are here.

 

So join my team – for a minimum amount of $25 (sent to Avon directly) you will receive a starter kit which contains full size products, samples and books to get you started on your journey to becoming a Small Business Owner….ask me for more information or sign up at at my site – www.youravon.com/ashapiro

Fear of Trying

We all go through life fearing something.  Like bugs (hate them) and high places (hate that more).  But the worse fear I believe is the fear of trying.  We put things on the back burner because we dont want to try them for fear of …..? what?  Failing would be my first guess.  But if we dont try we will never know the feeling of success …. and it is only through our failures that we learn.

 

And so as I speak to my team, I try to instill in them that they must keep trying.  Success does not come over night. In our business we must get out everyday and talk to people.  Will we be turned down? Yes, not everyone is going to be interested in our business.  But we have to find ways to communicating with different people on why it is best for them to be interested in our products.

When we try to sell makeup to a person who doesn’t wear any – of course, it will not get us anywhere.  But what if that person can be encouraged to add a little eyeliner or blush.  And failing that, we all need to wash our face….Avon has the best cleanser in the world.

I also find it helpful if I stay away from recommending makeup to those who won’t listen and ask them about their fashion and jewelry because Avon is more than makeup.  And if all else fails, I offer them my 10% discount card…..everyone loves a discount.

For those of my readers who would like a free discount card, please leave a comment and I will gladly send you one.
