This book is written for new Avon representatives who think they’d like some sales training and have not been successful to obtain it. Before we begin, please contemplate the following:
Avon is an $11 Billion company, and growing all the time—the largest direct selling company in the world. It has provided unlimited earnings for everyone involved since 1886. It is a company whose worldwide operations span more than one hundred countries, involve more than six million people worldwide, including more than a half-million in this country alone. You are a part of that company and you alone determine what you will obtain from the experience. If you don’t make the effort to make contacts to move the product, then you derive nothing but frustration from the experience, because few customers will come to you. And make no mistake—in any walk of life, nothing happens until a sale is made.
If you can’t make the time necessary to attend a sales or downline meeting when they occur, you fail to gain the knowledge necessary to present your product or opportunity, and because of that you may decide this isn’t for you. With little effort you could make yourself a “shooting star,” an outstanding salesperson with a stellar future. You can make it first to the President’s Club and beyond. How far you go depends on only one person—YOU! And if you can’t be bothered to join us, you have told us that you know all there is to know—so we could reasonably expect great things from you and save the effort necessary to support you. Sadly, that’s not the way it is. You have contributions to make. We need them. You need us.
