Here are my responses to the top five questions I am asked in my day-to-day dealings with customers and on my Avon Facebook page:
Q. Are you really 50? You don’t look it.
I am flattered, but yes, I am 50. I was born in 1968 and will be 51 this summer. I have two grown children (ages 19 and 21) and I’ve been married for almost 23 years. Trust me, hair dye is my friend! (LOL) You can see me through the years in the photo below! And if I don’t look my age it’s because I use the Avon Anew Ultimate Multi-Performance Skin Care Set!
Q. Who makes your videos?
I do! I usually film with my iPhone and then use iMovie to create the actual movies. I have the app downloaded on my MacBook and my phone. Another app I use from time to time is Animoto.
Q. Do you really use Avon and what are your favorite products?
I really do use them! I have a lot of favorites. Here are the main ones: ATC Glimmersticks Eye Liner, ATC Perfectly Matte Lipstick, the new Glimmershadow eyeshadow, On-Duty 24 Hour Deodorant, Skin-So-Soft Bath Oil (original scent only), Senses shower gels, the Anew Ultimate Skin Care line and generally any Anew product, and my new favorite product is the Love at 1st Lash Mascara. There are a lot of other things I love, but these are my favs.
Q. Do you only use Avon?
The answer is, “No.” There are many reputable cosmetic companies that have wonderful products. Some have specific items that I like, have used for years, and with which I won’t part. HOWEVER, I am an Avon Independent Sales Representative which means that I am a business owner. As a business owner, I only advertise Avon products. Keep in mind that I have a friend who sells Mary Kay. There are things from Avon that she prefers and will only buy from me and vice versa.
Q. Do you like all Avon products?
The answer again is, “No.” There are products I love, products I like, products I think are just ok, and others that I simply refuse to use/buy. As a business owner, I don’t advertise what I dislike but If a customer asks my opinion about a product, I always tell the truth. Understand though that everyone has his/her own opinion.
Q. Why do you sell Avon if you’re a School Principal?
I believe in entrepreneurship. It is not my goal to work for someone forever. One day, I’d like to retire and be my own boss completely. As such, I am building my business. Additionally, I love make up and skin care and fashion!
