Welcome to my new and improved blog!
Just to give you an idea of where I am coming from...when shopping, my favorite words to look for are "fully cooked", "dishwasher safe", and "3% Spandex".

WOW!! These are the best, easiest, most perfect
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

There are only 3 ingredients and there are no eggs so you can eat the dough!!

THAT'S IT! Just mix that together and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-19 minutes.

Everything you wanted to know about becoming an Avon Rep but were afraid to ask!

Short Company Description: Avon was founded in 1886!

Avon Products is the world's largest direct seller of cosmetics and beauty-related items, Its
products include cosmetics, fragrances, toiletries, jewelry, apparel, home furnishings, and more. Although the company has always been more directed toward female customers, Avon's line of male products continues to expand. Its children's products (such as shampoos and toys) have also proved successful. Another brand diversification, "mark." (targeted to younger women) is also doing well.

In 2007, Reese Witherspoon signed a multi-year agreement to serve as Avon's global ambassador. The actress will be involved in product development, appear in advertisements, and will serve as the honorary chairman of the Avon Foundation.

What are the sales quotas? There are no quotas. You are just expected to submit an order every two weeks. A new brochure (campaign) goes in every two weeks.

How do I start with this company? You can visit my website at
Click on the box that says Become an Avon Representive. From here you will fill in short form and be contacted by your local district manager. It is only $10 to sign up!!!
I would love to have you on my team!

What are the shipping times? Fast! :-) When you place your regular campaign order online, you will receive it within about 3 days! When customers order from your website and have it sent directly to their home, they will receive it within a week.

Does the company dropship? Yes. When a customer places an order through your personal website, Avon ships the order directly to them.

What is the commission structure?
For your first four campaigns (each campaign runs two weeks), when you submit an order online and on time for $50 or more and pay for it on time, you will earn 50% commission. So for your first campaign, if you have $100 in orders and follow the guidelines just mentioned, you will earn $50. *

After your first four campaigns, you will earn 20-50% commission depending on your order size.

*this is the most current info I have. If you decide to sign up, you can verify this with your district manager.

How am I paid? You place an order every two weeks. Once your order is received, you have about a week and a half to deliver the orders and collect the money from your customers. You will earn 20-50% commission depending on your order size. After you collect the money from your customers, you send Avon a payment. For example, if you earned a 30% commission, you would keep the 30% from your customers order and send Avon the 70% back.

When customers place an order from your online store, Avon credits the amount of your commission to your account and takes it directly off the balance you owe them.

Are company websites available? Yes! Avon provides the website for you. It is a very professional and easy-to-navigate website. Avon automatically updates your website every two weeks when a new campaign is available. There is a minimal charge to have your website, but Avon has an incentive program where you can get this fee waived if you serve at least one customer per campaign through your website. They have been running this incentive for a year, and it looks like it will continue for awhile.

Can I design my own website? Although you do not design your own Avon website, you are able to personalize it with your own welcome message and personal information. You can also choose from several different color schemes and layouts.

Where can I sell? You can sell anywhere! You can sell locally to friends, family, neighbors, local businesses, etc. From your website, you can sell to anyone in the United States! When someone orders on your website, they can choose 'direct delivery' and Avon will dropship the order to them. They can choose 'representative delivery' and have you deliver it to them. When they choose this option, their items will come in with your next regular order.

Does this company offer fundraisers? Yes, their fundraising opportunities are very well-organized and successful!

Are training tools available? Yes, there are many online webinars and courses you can take.

Am I required to hold home parties? No. Some representatives will choose to do open-houses, but home parties are not part of Avon's plan.

More Information? Thank you for visiting my page and taking the time to read about Avon. Please don't hesitate to call me or send an email with any questions or comments you may have.

SpaFinder Hair Turban

I could live without my hair turbans from Avon, but it would not be fun! Such a simple little towel can make life so much easier.

Just wrap it around your hair as soon as you get out of the shower or tub. It is so much nicer than trying to balance a huge towel that is wrapped on your head or worse have water dripping down your back while you are trying to get ready. Just leave the turban on while you do your make-up and by the time you take it off, it has soaked up all the excess moisture and your hair has been out of your way the whole time.

I keep one in our travel-trailer for when we go camping, and I even pack one to use in hotels. That's how great they are!! Right now, they are even on sale for only $6.99 (Reg. $8)

Lightweight microfiber terry hair wrap absorbs excess moisture so hair dries quickly. Button-and-loop closure. Easy-to-use. Machine wash. Imported.

Please visit my online store today and search for the word turban.

FREE SHIPPING on any order with the coupon code FSANY

Thanks for reading!
