What do you dream about? My 15 years with Avon has included many dreams. Yet these dreams have been accompanied by some doses of reality.
One reality was rebuilding the business three times!! Even with an established line like Avon (which continues to expand their product lines) being a sole proprietor is not easy. That’s why I’m so excited to share an unexpected trip I took a couple of weeks ago with you…
In October, Avon invited me to participate in their “VIP 2022 Kickoff Event.” I was super excited as all expenses (except my travel to and from) were paid for. I had not traveled since Covid and the event was held in LA. So I decided to treat myself and flew First Class for the first time EVER. We stayed at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel where Pretty Woman was filmed and traveling as a VIP was incredible. I could fill pages with descriptions of the event, as well as the beautiful Christmas decorations at the hotel.
I will share with you a few highlights of what happened at the event. Along with two days of learning what’s “New in 2022,” Avon set up a studio to help us make an introductory welcome video. This experience made me see how easy a short video can be. And here’s the best part…
…they listened to us!
As of December 9th – we now have a top-notch website with ‘whole face virtual makeovers.’ I even went on stage to share what a group of us were going to do to “delight” our customers by incorporating these new site features.
Fifteen years as an Independent Sales and Leadership Representative has taught me a lot. Starting next year, I will share more specifics of my coaching from Avon, and how my coach told me what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear.
One announcement I have for you now is that beginning in January, I will change from weekly blogs to two blogs a month. So much has happened in 2021 and I’m not done yet. I have been working on obtaining the two remaining life Coach certifications. My goal was to have it completed by the end of December, and I accomplished it a week early! With my business growing, one of my goals is to help others reach their potential – both personally and professionally.
So I’ll end 2021 with a few questions for you:
Are you where you want to be in your life? Where do you want to be in your life…and what do you need to do to get there?
Let’s make 2022 the best year yet!!!
Happy New Year!!!
