Business Tips for Mothers
Independent Avon Sales Leader Carrie Twining, 31 from Rugby is currently pregnant with her second child. 3 years ago she was working full-time as a buyer for Claire's Accessories when she fell pregnant wi
th her first child, and found herself in a tricky position having to choose between going back to full-time employment, or spending time with her new baby. Going back to work would also mean the additional cost of childcare and extensive travel costs from Rugby to Birmingham every day.
After much stress she decided to leave full-time employment and unable to find a suitable part-time role she was unemployed for a year. She was struggling and her husband was the only income in the house. That's when she approached for Avon by a local woman who spotted her. She took on the role and has never looked back. Now earning more than a part-time job could offer her, she gets to spend time at home and doesn't need to worry about additional expenses such as increasing costs for childcare.
We also have business tips for mothers from Carrie as below:
Set a goal. If you have something to work towards you are sure to succeed. Is there a holiday you want to take the kids on?
Make a plan on how you're going to achieve that goal. Avon can be as much or as little as you make it. The Sales Leadership programme means you can have a team as big or as small as you make it.
Be positive, all the time. If you have a slow month, the next one is going to be brilliant so it doesn't matter.
Learn about the products. Avon offers more than just lipstick and you'll be surprised what you can offer customers.
Talk to people every day, everywhere you go with the kids about Avon â school gates, supermarket, anywhere.
Vary your prospecting techniques and find what works for you - I love 'Car Jumping' which is stopping other mothers who are out and about when I see them from my car. Chances are they're looking for extra income too!
Once you've got recruits, look after your team. They are the heart of your business
Ask for help & learn from others. Avon has a great core network of people who will help you out along the way.
Plan your hours ahead. If the holidays are coming up, make sure you get ahead on your orders. That way you can enjoy them.
Be happy and have fun! This is the most important thing. Avon is a great way to meet new people and work around your schedule. So no need to feel stressed!
