Slow Down

The time has come to smell the flowers.  Our nation is always on the go.  I was always on the go.  Get up early in the morning, work, shop, cook, transport kids, – when do we stop.  I am guilty of this type of life also.  There is never enough time in the day to accomplish all we have to do.

So what if we stopped – turn off the electronics, sit on the patio with a cup of coffee and a good book for what?  an hour or two?  Will the world come to an end?  Cant the shopping wait until tomorrow or later?  This world is always on fast forward and life is short.  When was the last time you took a bath.  Not enough time?  Sure, a shower is quicker but not as relaxing.

Take time – read more, drink that cup of coffee on your patio not in the train station.  More and more young people are having heart attacks because of the fast pace and continuous working in our lives.

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.

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.

There are no free rides

As a mom of five I was working full time but felt with all the kids grown and out of the house I wanted something to do when I retire….along came Avon – I have been a Rep for the past 2 yrs, love it, meet great people and make extra money for those extra joys in life….I am since retired and loving my new life.

I often come across FB posts that want to know about work that pays well.  But these people dont want scams and dont want to put any money upfront.  Well, there are no such things as free rides.  What people dont realize these days is you have to work for what you want.  Nothing comes free….oh, except those scams.

Can Avon make you rich?  YES – with hard work.  Orders dont come to you.  No one is looking to spend money.  You have to go out and get them.  Depending on how hard you work for it – you will do well.  Get out there and leave books all over, talk to your neighbors and friends and tell them to pass the word around.  Tell people Avon is more than just makeup.  An analyzes of my business just showed my highest sales is in fashion – I sell tops, pants, shoes, sandals and yesterday I delivered a coat to a customer who loved it.  She tried it on right there and was surprised how well it fit.  And that is another things – dont like it?  Fine, we take it back to be returned or exchanged….your choice!

So dont look for those get-rich-quick-schemes…..think about how long Avon has been in business (130 years) and realize they must be doing something right!  And yes we do have a start up fee – but how much is your choice…..I myself went for the smaller bundle – it is not just money upfront either…..you get products you can use to start your business.  One of my team members went for the big bundle ($100) because she wanted all the products and the tote bag also.

Everything We Left Behind

This book is a series. So I suggest you read Everything We Keep first or you will be lost. I had to read the next book because once James disappeared the previous book leaves you with the feeling that Aimee is going to find him. But what we dont know now is that James has become Carlos and living in Mexico in a state of fugue. I didnt even know there was such a thing and looking is up made me better understand what James/Carlos was going through.

Again this book has some surprises, romance and a lot of anger – between family members….and lots of secrets. Keeps you turning the pages BUT the reason it didnt get 5 stars is that it keeps jumping back and forth in the story between Carlos in his present state and then when he realizes he is James and doesnt remember a Carlos (fugue state)….this is not a book to put down and pick up a day or two later. You need to continuously read this book so you dont lose track of what is going on….

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?

Tomorrow is the day

Yesterday I spent two hours going over papers.  Reading, signing and having them notarized.  Picking options, making copies … Today I sorted through them re-checking everything to make sure I had all the forms properly filled out.

Tomorrow I will take all these papers and go directly to the office where I will put in my Retirement papers to make it official.  How do I feel you ask me (or maybe you dont) but I really cant explain it.  Happy, Sad, Afraid, Sorry, Excited…

All of the above.  I want to because it is time.  I look forward to doing whatever I want, waking when I want – even if it is early in the morning.  Shopping in stores that are not crowded – doing errands during the week instead of everything on Saturday or even better, on my way home from work.

Yes, I am looking forward to it…..will let you know how it went – they say it will take about two hours….well, once it is done all I have to do is finish out the rest of the school year (12 days but who’s counting)  and – that’s it!

Time for nothing

It has been a hectic week even though we had Monday off.  It seems miss one day of work, double up on the next few days.  Especially when my co-worker was off today and will be off tomorrow.

I get to come in on her hours – 7 am to 2:30 pm – getting up earlier than usual, and facing the work day earlier.  Of course I love leaving at 2:30 because I still have most of the afternoon for myself….Well, not all to myself.  Grandkids were over so it was a matter of entertaining them, cooking for them and answering all their questions.

grandkids

Now they have left and it is quiet here……deciding on dinner for myself, maybe some reading – enter some orders into my Avon account….and then will have to get up early again for another coverage tomorrow.

But in the meantime I am enjoying the change in weather – the doors are open for 74 degree weather, and the sun is shining.  A big change from the rainy, cloudy weather we have been having.

Enjoy each day……….
