I was doing some reading last night, my all time favorite hobby, and for the second time in the past week I ran across a disturbing fact: Most bankruptcies could be avoided if the person(s) filing had just $50 more a week. Just $2,600 more a year could have meant keeping what they had and not having to start over. I was one of those people hanging by a thread above the pit of financial destruction, and while it is hard to believe, just $50 more a week in my hands would have given me a bit more ‘rope’ to hold on too.
There are those who could seriously enjoy life a bit more with $50 more a week to spend so they didn’t feel like they had to scrape by each pay day. $50 more a week could be the difference between “yes” and “no” when their children want to play sports, join a cheer leading squad, take dance or music lessons.
Many work-at-home opportunities are scams, where you have to send them $100 or more to receive a list of possible work clients seeking people to do work from home. Sadly, if they had $100 they could part with for a “maybe” job they probably wouldn’t be looking in the first place.
Other ways to work from home are party plan/direct sales businesses. And yes you really can make money doing these but now that I am in direct sales with 2 companies I do realize some of the realities. Party plan businesses are great fun, you get folks to host parties, they invite their friends, you show up and sell pots and pans, or candles, or jewelry and make money off those sales. One of the ‘hooks’ is that you can make $300-500 in just 2 hours, you cannot make that working in an office where your hourly wage might be $12-20 per hour. Well true, but not many party plan folks are doing 40 hours a week in just parties. And the other issue being that the majority of goods sold at these parties are not consumable. Jewelry is nice but you can only wear so much at a time. Purses and bags rock my world too, but I only use one at a time and rarely need more anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong, some party plan businesses, like the one I am with (SwissJust) do sell things you will want more of fairly often, trouble is I’m already a very busy woman so the idea of having to find several hours a week to go do a party to make money is not so appealing. It isn’t just 2 hours, it is drive time, set up time, take down time so that 2 hours is more like 4 or 5 per party for a party plan business owner. I love going to parties others are throwing, but again time is of the essence and I just don’t have much of that.
Now, we are also all looking for a way to save money on our daily needs, in addition to making that $50 a week.
So, you’ve read this far keep going…
What if I told you that for just $10 you could:
- Join a “club” where you could purchase most of your daily needs (other than food & utilities) for 20-50% off EVEN sale items?
- You could make $50 more a week (or a lot more but let’s stick with the $50).
- You would not have to go out and spend any more time away from home than you already do? In fact LESS time away because it would cut down on trips to the store.
Would that be something that you find of interest?
You CAN invest only $10 and have all of that and more.
Yes…it is AVON.
For $10 you receive your Avon kit, your website, oodles of online training, and if you are signed up under the right person you have someone who wants to make you a success.
Trust me when I tell you that Avon….well it isn’t your grandmother’s or even your mother’s Avon anymore.
While you certainly can go ringing door bells if you so desire, most of us don’t. There are no territories, sell to anyone, anywhere you like.
Take me for example. I work a full time job now, and have grandchildren and children to spend time with. Books I want to read and shows I like to watch. The idea of having to get dressed up and go work a party just doesn’t appeal to me. But I do love extra money. Avon gives me that without adding to my busy day. I don’t leave my house without brochures and I will talk to and hand one to anyone I come in contact with during the day.
I recently thought about the things I use every single day:
Shampoo & conditioner
Hair gel and hair spray
All of those items I purchase from Avon at 20-50% savings every time, even on items that are on sale.
Yes I make $50 a week…in fact much more. We have Avon reps making 6 figure incomes (one little old gal in my division is 80+ years old and sells over $200,000 a year making %50 commissions…you do the math!)
There is no catch…we don’t buy anything we either don’t need ourselves, or our customers don’t order, unless we want it. Just that $10 investment and there is no expensive kit to purchase. Yes, I do purchase brochures, in fact I used to spend $20 and buy 100 of them each campaign. I’m only spending $11 and getting 30 now. Sometimes I buy samples (10 for $1) but mostly I just use the brochures and talk to folks when I’m out and they either call with an order or go to my free, Avon website that came with my $10 investment, and they buy and order direct to their own door.
So, how much do you need to sell to earn $50 a week? If you placed an order of $300 every campaign (every 2 weeks), you would earn 35% ($105). There is your $50 a week. How hard is it to sell $150 a week in Avon? Not hard at all, if you are handing folks your brochure and following up to see what they need, you will consistently have orders of at least $300. I submit the orders online every other week, it is delivered to my door, and I bag it up while I watch TV then deliver when I am out and about or some customers pick it up from me.
I am looking for more representatives for my team. Doesn’t matter if you live all the way out in California, you can be on my team. And still for only $10. All you have to do is go to http://www.startavon.com and sign up, using a credit card, for just $10 (NO shipping etc). Use the code: MARTIGARDNER and you will become one of my team members. I will coach you, Skype with you, do whatever you need me to do in order to help you make that $50 a week.
Even if you are your only customer, you still will be able to purchase your Avon at a discount of at least 20% (as long as it is a $50 order). That alone beats anything your local wholesale club can offer.
How could $10 change YOUR life right now? That is all you would be out just for trying, but it sure could turn into the best $10 you ever spent.
