The answer is yes, I do make money with Avon! Yes, I sell over $10,000 a year easily! And no, I don't spend more then I earn. I have been selling Avon since 2014. This is my primary source of income and I treat it like a business. That is the secret on how I make Presidents Club every year. Yes, I do purchase items from Avon that I would have purchased at the store for myself if I did not sell Avon. Not only do I save money on the products that I purchase from Avon, but the products that I do purchase from Avon are a much higher quality. If I am going to purchase a dress for a baby shower and it would cost me $50 why wouldn't I purchase it from my own Avon store for $29.99 or less (before my discount). I would not overspend shopping at the mall, so why would I overspend shopping from my own Avon business? I would not. I have a separate checking account that I use for my Avon business. When I shop for myself, I deposit the money right away into my Avon checking account. If I had my own physical store, I would not take anything home that I did not pay for. I am sure there are representatives out there that would answer the questions differently, but that is how they choose to run their business.
What do I do day to day? I go about my day running errands and while I am out, I introduce myself to people I do not know yet. I offer them an Avon catalog and free samples and ask them to fill out a customer card. I let them know that I place an order every two week and I will text or call them (their choice) before I place my order to see if they need anything. While I am out, if I happen to pass a customers home, I will leave the current catalog in a plastic bag hanging on their front door. If I have a sample to share with them, I include it in the bag. If I have an order for a customer, I also keep a cooler or insulated bag in my car with customers orders I have scheduled for the day as well. I normally schedule them between 11am and 2pm so that I have plenty of time before and after to get my errands done and plan play time with my 3 year old daughter. She loves that we spend our days together and that she gets to be a mini boss! I have met lots of other moms at fast food playlands, parks, and other local family events and I never feel like I am working. I setup tables at vendor events during the holidays and I get a lot of new customers that way. I also carry a small bag with products and samples to setup a "pop-up" at restaurants and coffee shops during meals and snack times too. If I want to grow my business quickly I also have some "secret" activities that I do as well and I always share what I do with my team as well.
How do I stay focused? I use the calendar on my cell phone to manage my schedule. If I have a dentist appointment, I would never schedule something else in place of it. I treat my Avon business the same way. I plan my schedule the week before and it is easy to adjust as needed, and once the week starts I do my best to stick with it. I was a part of the Avon coaching program and it taught me so much about running my Avon business as a real business and not a hobby. Avon has lots of great FREE business tools and trainings at my fingertips that I access on my laptop, tablet, and even cell phone. I have friends who work full time jobs that come to me asking for money because they know that I know how to earn it, multiply it, and save it. If you (or someone you know) is looking for a work from home business opportunity, please consider Avon. When you join my team, I will be your mentor and will share with you all that I know because I want you to have a successful Avon business too.
