My avon story and my first year

Everyone has their own story and a reason for doing the things that they love and some things that they don’t . I love my Avon life and this is why i do it …

To understand my why first you need to understand my story. When I was 16 i found myself pregnant and living by my self in a YMCA. In 2011 i had my first son Jackson, from then i went into rented housing that never lasted longer than 6 months. I was in a bad relationship and not a great situation. Then in 2012 i got my self out of the bad relationship which was the best for me and my son but by the end of it left me with a lot of solicitor debt with court cases lasting up till 2016.  In 2013 more stable and with my fiance we had my second son Nick.

At this point i started looking at more jobs that fit around my children better as with a working partner and two young children set hours aren’t always the best way forward. I received a message at the start of 2014 from Zoe my amazing upline. She came over and signed me up as home visits were what was required then none of the video calls we can do now.  I managed to last with Avon a year but then had to give it up unfortunately as with solicitors still going on, all appointments having to be home visits and the face that there was no online store so all customers were needing to be hand delivered wasn’t always convenient around my two children. However over this year with Avon it helped to pay for my wedding day.

       

A few years down the line in June 2017 I was back and ready to take the Avon world by storm. I messaged Zoe’s Facebook page, as i had promised her that when i came back i would join her team again. She’s an amazing upline and friend, i couldn’t ask for better.  So anyways, Zoe popped on a video call the day before she jetted off on a family holiday and signed me up.

Straight away i tagged my self and started appointing a team of my own with in the first week. So off i went over my first few months getting customers both online and offline through family and friends , word of mouth and social media. As well as boxing up starter kit after starter kit to send out to all my lovely new team members.

As the year has progressed and my team has got bigger so have Avon. I no longer have to pack up starter kit after starter kit as Avon now let new reps choose their own and send them out for me, all my appointments i can do by video call and if i choose to i can have all my customers online so it makes it so easy to fit around my family life.

During the first year i hit almost every target on the fast start program and it has made such a difference to my life its great it really is.

I have been to some amazing Avon events most recently Avon’s conference which was filled with recognition, upcoming treats and incentives and so much more. It was also a great time to network and meet like minded people.

This has been the best year ever and i hope for many more to come.
