Do you want to sell Avon but you’re also a stressed Momma and not sure how? This post is for you.
RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW
You may be in the bathroom or having some alone time in the car. From one stressed mom to you, I may have some insight for you on how to get more peace in your lives. More peace = more time to work your Avon business.
IT’S OK TO SELL AVON FROM YOUR TRUNK
Don’t have a dedicated office space in your home? You can make your trunk your moving office. Grab a few bins from the Dollar Tree to start. Organize some Avon brochures, samples and bags in the new mobile office.
EXTEND BATH TIME
If your little ones are old enough to bathe independently, try adding a small chore to do after bath time that extends the free time you have. This gives you time to answer Avon emails, schedule your Avon social media posts, create new content for Instagram, and maybe paint your nails. It feels better to sell Avon as an eRep with painted nails.
IN THE CAR, YOU’RE THE STAR
It has a corny ring to it but any parent who’s handled business in a parked car knows the peace that comes along with it. Create more of those moments.
FOLLOW FUNNY PEOPLE ON INSTAGRAM
Laughing is the best medicine for a stressed out Mom. Find a comedy club amateur night or go the Youtube route. But you need some laugh time. If your love interest makes you laugh, that counts too.
IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING
I use Google calendar to schedule things like writing a new blog, dropping off Avon samples, and returning emails. Kids always have new friend drama or activities that can keep you feeling behind schedule. If you want to focus on your Avon business and sell Avon when you have a 3 page to-do list, use your calendar app and give yourself some extra time in the bathroom to organize it.
NIGHT OWLS & EARLY BIRDS
I’m biased but the night hours are when I do my best brain storming. In order to sell Avon and organize your business, you have to carve out some uninterrupted time and that’s either early morning or late night. Have in mind what you’ll need to work on when that time comes though. Otherwise you may find yourself sleeping through it.
ROMANTIC STUFF NEEDS A SCHEDULE TOO
Be ready for your love interest to be confused why you’re putting in so much time to Avon. This one hits home because I’ve juggled much of my Avon business in a new relationship. Carving out some romantic time away from your business is necessary. Romance helps you relax and clear your mind which helps stress.
GET AN EASY, TRENDY HAIR STYLE
Less time in the mirror means less time to get dressed. You may be racing out of the house, but you’ll look good doing it with minimal effort. The added bonus is that you’ll look more like you sell Avon when you drop off brochures.
EAT OUT ONCE A WEEK
You may not want to let on to the family but designate an “out to eat” day of the week (Friday preferably) where you’re not cooking. Eat dinner with the family of course but pop in a movie and give yourself some quality time working your Avon business. In order to make these sacrifices to sell Avon, you have to absolutely love it.
ORGANIZE YOUR FRIDGE
Sounds simple but when kids open the fridge they don’t see anything they can eat. Even if you had lunch meat and bread draped across the top, they wouldn’t see it or want it. Appeal to their senses by organizing your fridge to put healthy snacks in small stack-able containers. You’ll have less stress and you can continue to concentrate more on how to sell Avon better and better.
SIGN UP A FRIEND
If you have a friend who’s always buying from you, sign her up. The two of you can sell Avon as a team, plan fundraisers together, split brochure costs, help each other with babysitting and more. Plus having an Avon friend is like a gym buddy, you stay accountable in your Avon business.
STOP GOOGLING WAYS TO MANAGE STRESS AND START MANAGING
My grandmother used to always say that the longer you think about doing the dishes, the harder it is to do them. The same rings true for stressed out moms. We go, go , go, and really don’t have time to think twice about much. Having a successful Avon business is a stress relief. Hang in there until you get your Avon business going. The work will have paid off nicely.
READING IS STILL FUNDAMENTAL
Encourage reading with the kids by doing it yourself. Just as watching a movie relaxes others, as does reading. When you add reading time into the routine, it’s the same as adding peace. Pretty soon, you can sneak in some Avon work during reading time.
Make trips to the library often. The library has interactive games as well as programs sponsored by the library or community members. Both would allow you to have some much needed quiet time to sell Avon and work your business.
PUT DOWN THE TABLET, PICK UP A BIKE
Bike riding is so much fun for kids. It’s also very addictive. If you can delegate a place outside in the front or back of your home to work, the kids can ride bikes and play while you get in some time to sell Avon online.
IS AVON YOUR HOBBY TOO?
Much like your partner should also be your friend, Avon should also be your hobby. I carve out time to sell Avon because I enjoy it so much. As with any business, you’ll begin to feel stressed out when you hate what you’re doing so enjoy your Avon business.
AVON REPS ARE YOUR MOTIVATION, NOT COMPETITION
Connect with other Avon reps on social media or locally. You’ll be inspired by new ideas and new methods to make money while you sell Avon from home.
