Not impossible

When I first started selling Avon it was rough going.  I had sold it many years ago when there were no online sales and computers.

So I was unaware of all that I could do.  It was slow going and at times I didnt know if I would stick with it.  But slowly I found that the more you put into your business, the more you get out of it.  With the starter kit (only $25) you have all you need at your hands.  Want more?  Go for the $50 or $100 starter kit (they were not available when I first joined). 

You get everything you need - full size products, brochures and samples.....and a free website.
Besides the satisfaction of more money....you have your own business to work whenever you want.  I am usually online in the mornings, I go out in the afternoon to pass out books and the evening is left for relaxing or collecting orders.  Call people, text them....the easiest way to run your business.

The perks are endless - cruises, trips, free gifts and yearly Repfests in different states.  Meet your colleagues and enjoy yourself.  Interested in joining my team?  I will walk you through everything you need to know.  Call or text me today - message me right now....or sign up by going to my website and clicking "Boss Life"... hope to see you on the cruise to Bermuda this year!

Review: Cold Feet

Cold Feet Cold Feet by Brenda Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great book by Brenda Novak. I am never disappointed and just love all her books. This one had me stumped because I could not figure out who the serial killer was. Madison's father was accused but before they could charge him, he killed himself. His family lived with this hanging over their heads. But his daughter never believed he did it.

In comes Caleb, a former cop who turned writer of crime, to put doubt all around when there seems to be a copycat killer around. Or was her father innocent all along and the serial killer still lives. A lot of mystery, romance and questions surround this great story.

Review: The Great Alone

The Great Alone The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It has been awhile where I read a book that I could not put down. But Kristin Hannah has written that book in The Great Alone. She has also opened my eyes to the beauty of Alaska. I have read other books about Alaska but never have I experienced a love for its beauty. It was always portrayed as dark, cold and dangerous but Hannah has also shown the survival part along with the beauty of its long nights and dangerous places.

And so we meet Leni and her mom and dad. Who set out to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. They are left a house in Alaska from her dad's friend who served in Vietnam with him. And thus begins this family's struggle to adapt to a new land, deal with her father's PSTD and his abuse of her mother. You will learn to love Leni and cry for her mom. You will learn to hate Ernt, the father who cant control himself. But most of all, you will learn to love the wilderness and strength in this story.

A hard life entails and we see how this family along with others survive until it all becomes too much for them. There was romance, abuse, struggles and lots of tears in this story. Many decisions which may or may not have been the right ones. All I know is by the end of this book, one has to ponder and think how strong the characters of this books were considering all that they had been through. And wonder what would you have done if in the same situation.

You smell good

I have often envied those women who  spray themselves with cologne and all day long smell good.  I have often asked what they are wearing that smells so good.  I have often bought their cologne...but it doesnt smell the same on me...and I have spent all that money...and the store wont take it back....


Well, I finally found my scent....Prima Noir - warm and spicy, lasts all day and sometimes into the next day.  And instead of spending $125 for a bottle...it is only $30 and I have 120 days to return it if I dont like the scent or it just doesnt work for me.

I usually give out samples before I take orders so that my customers can "try" it out first...but Avon's return policy is the best....but I am sure you wont want to return this one....from just wearing it I have had 3 customers orders a bottle...check it out on my website, www.youravon.com/ashapiro - and let me know how you like it.

(If you would like a sample, please contact me or register on my website.)

Review: The Wife Between Us

The Wife Between Us The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The description of this book talks about "assumption" The dictionary says it means - a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof. And so you read about a marriage and assume it is happy...why not, Nellie and Richard are happily married - she has everything she could ever want, beautiful house, fine clothes, best of wine, cars and jewelry.

As the book continues you will not be able to put it down and find there is a thin line between assumption and reality. And what you think is happening is not really happening. And even when you realize what is going on - well, you dont see it coming....Assume nothing.

Makeup Junkie?

How much do you spend on makeup and makeup accessories?  Did you know that all makeup expires?  So you must be buying it anywhere from 3-6 months on a regular basis.  With the price of makeup (and I follow the prices and discounts) can you really afford to replace your makeup that often?

A customer recently called asking about Avon's foundation brush.  She recently lost hers and was upset that she paid a huge amount of money for it.  She has become a good customer of mine and went browsing through the books I send/drop off to her.  She came across a foundation brush for only $9.99 - well worth the price.

In this week's book, the discount is buy one and get one for half price.....

Good friends

When I retired I knew that my life would change.  Not only the obvious changes - like not having to get up in the morning to go to work, not having the stress of deadlines, not traveling to work in the bad weather (even though I live about 20 minutes away) and certainly not dreading Monday mornings.

So now I get up - whenever - have breakfast and relax - do whatever needs to be done, at my pace in the time I allot for it. 



And every once in awhile I get a call to come join some of my old friends from work and just chat,  eat and drink the night away.  Tonight was one of those days.  Seeing old friends and being able to talk to everyone and catch up of the latest happenings.  Since I retired I have missed everyone but am happy when we can get together.  Tonight was a celebration of another friend's retirement.

We were able to talk and remember old time; talk about the future and look forward to more good times and gatherings.
