Live From L.A.—it's the Avon Global Believe Tour!

Patrick Dempsey joined Andrea Jung and other Avon leaders and entertainers in Los Angeles for the third stop of the Avon Global Believe Tour. As part of the exciting program, Jung and Dempsey announced a $60,000 Global Believe Fund Grant to California-based Haven Hills, one of the oldest domestic violence shelters in the country. The new grant brings the total Avon Foundation grants awarded to Haven Hills to almost $100,000 since 2004. It is part of the $1 million Avon Global Believe Fund whose goal is to fund a pioneering global effort to support women's domestic violence shelters and agencies internationally.

More than 5,000 Avon Representatives plus District and Division Sales Managers attended the event, which opened with the inspirational song, "America the Beautiful" by recording artist Judith Hill.

The U.S. portion of the tour is now complete, but the event will continue with stops around the world. Special guests are expected to make appearances at many of the events.

Former CFO on Track to Becoming EUL

When her son John turned five-years old, Alexis Hamiltonswitched gears in her career path, going from a hectic profession as Chief Financial Officer of a successful corporation to a work-from-home business consultant. Alexis says that she made the move to focus more on being a mom. "At the time, a friend who was a Representative suggested I also try selling Avon," Alexis recalls. "I was intrigued because I knew that, while my friend was a stay-at-home mom, she earned a decent income, which was my plan too," the Advanced Unit Leader (AUL) explains.

Once Alexis became a Representative in April 2007, she took advantage of Beauty of Knowledge courses, and soon after she was certified as a Beauty Advisor. "When I offer Customers advice on skin care and makeup, saying I am a Certified Beauty Advisor shows I know what I'm talking about," says the Menifee, California, resident. "Plus, they usually follow my advice, which results in sales, sales and more sales."

Also Alexis immediately embraced Sales Leadership. She reached Unit Leader (UL) within two months after partnering with Avon, advanced to AUL two months later and within a year she was an Executive Unit Leader (EUL). Before she knew it, Alexis, who is a single parent, was relying greatly on her Sales Leadership check every two weeks, and her son, John, can also rely on his mom being home when he returns from school. "The flexibility Avon allows me—especially to be home and available to take my son to sports—is not measurable in dollars," says Alexis.

Since she started with Avon until now, Alexis remains among the top-10 Sales Leadership Representatives in her District. She's also been acquiring a collection of Avon awards for Sales Increase, Recruiting Excellence, Leadership Excellence, and the much-coveted Spirit of Avon award, and more.

Over the past few years, with ups and downs in the economy, Alexis has fluctuated between AUL and EUL. The number of members in her Downline has changed, peaking at 300; currently there are about 160. Today she is an Honor Society member and is on track to regain her EUL, after which she has her eye on achieving Senior Executive Unit Leader status.

To grow her business, Alexis attends local and national Sales Meetings, seminars and conferences. She also tells us that working with her District Manager, Blanca Guzman, and working hand in hand with her Downline is what has driven her success with Avon. "The key is to work with your first generation and to train them well," she advises.

In fact, Alexis makes it her business to network with her Downline every week. She adheres to a strict schedule of being available for "coffee hour" at a specific day and time, which encourages her team members to stop by to discuss how they can help each other grow and solve any problems that arise. "There's no scheduling or RSVPs involved. They just know that I am available so they can feel free to drop in if they need me," she explains.

We asked Alexis what other surefire ways a Representative can help her sales and Sales Leadership grow. Here are her top-five favorites:
  1. Provide excellent Customer service and always follow up.

  2. Organize or attend mock workshops to learn (or teach) the most effective ways to do things such as the appointment process and running a successful Avon Party for your Customers.

  3. Use Downline Manager to keep track of your Downline and to help your Avon business run smoothly.

  4. Take Beauty of Knowledge courses on to become an expert and to refresh your skills as part of your continuing education.

  5. Learn the levels of Sales Leadership and study and get involved in Avon Incentive programs. Knowing there is money to be made is very motivating
