Ready to go Crazy!!!

I have been off work now for 3 weeks and am ready to climb the walls. I am selling Avon but that just doesn't seem to be enough to keep me occupied. However, I currently do have 6 reps under me and I do have to get them all trained and assist them in getting their business going. Today I have decided to write a newsletter for my team which I have yet to come up with a name. I have never written a Newsletter before so it should be fun. There is just so much to tell them and I want to make sure I don't get them all cross-eyed with it. Since it snowed last night I am certainly not going out of the house unless I have to.

I am still recovering from my surgery on my left wrist and I thought I was going to be able to get out there and really hit the ground running since I had my splint off and my wound was healing great. Of course reality had a difference of opinion with me and it won. Monday when I had my splint taken off and the stitches removed the doctor told me to be careful and not to lift anything heavy for at least a month. OK no problem I can do that since that was the only restriction I had. However, come Tuesday everything changed. It had been raining all night and when I pulled in my drive from Mondays running I apparently parked to close to my husbands work van for him to be able to get out the next morning. Of course I didn't notice this until I seen him having trouble getting out of the driveway. Now it is raining cats and dogs outside and I was still in my pjs because after all it was only 6:45 a.m. and I decided I would run out to the car and move it. So down I went on my hand that I just had surgery on and ripped it wide open. So my day landed me back in the hospital for my hand thinking I broke something or damaged what had just been fixed in surgery the week before. Luckily neither happened, however, I am now back in a bandage and a splint. So yeah I have absolutely no motivation right now.

So now I find myself at home making cold calls more less to people that have expressed an interest in Avon in some form or fashion. Hopefully, I will be able to recruit more reps so that I can get a residual income going and not have to stress so much about working. My husband on the other hand wants me to work but he is being very supportive in the Avon adventure with me. He knows that a residual income is a good thing but right now he is looking at the big picture and the bills that need to be paid. So I am sitting here trying to put together a newsletter to help my team grow their customer base and give them much needed information. Obviously I need to put key dates in there for any meetings which I have yet to schedule as far as group training. Trying to figure out a date and location is going to be a big key part of it of course and with that it means trying to find someplace that is free for the time being. Especially considering I don't have a full-time job right now and I haven't received any compensation for the recruits that I do have under me. I am not sure when I will receive the money for recruiting them but hopefully soon. I know that the majority of them have an end sale campaign date close to mine which is the 6th of February however the campaign doesn't officially close until the 13th of February so I will probably not get a check until the 15th.

So if you know anyone in the Louisville Kentucky or Southern Indiana area that is looking to be their own boss, make their own hours and determine their own pay then please send them my way. I am always looking to help people become their best and right now we have alot of major incentives going on where they can earn free products, free supplies and free items, not to mention the trips and other products that they can get for selling Avon. You can have them email me at louisvilleavonlady@hotmail.com or they can go to my website here and contact me that way. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. I will also be doing a on-line event with a girl from Thirty-One products soon to help promote both of our businesses.

Well I better close for now since I have to get my clothes out of the drier and try to get my house straightened up. I hope everyone has a great Friday.
