You know what that little bee means, right? Time for some Beauty Buzz!
Today’s hot topic is about big changes that are going on within Avon, now called New Avon LLC, which encompasses the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico. New Avon LLC is being acquired by LG Household and Health Care, Ltd (LG H&H). This is a very exciting time for all of us Avon Representatives and for all of you as well, since this means great new things are right over the horizon, such as new collaborations and product lines.
I received an email yesterday from our new CEO, Paul Yi. Here are a few inspiring snippets from that email:
we must look to the future with resolve and determination—and regain our place among the world’s most admired direct selling companies. We will earn the right to be winners.
My optimism is not unfounded. More so than at any other time in our history, Avon is poised for success.
With the combination of Avon and LG H&H now complete, we have the wind at our backs like never before. It is our time.
How exciting is that?
Back on August 9th, I received an email from Avon introducing us to our soon to be new CEO, and Mr. Yi was described to us as having been President of Coca-Cola Korea Company since 2007. Prior to that he held a number of sales and marketing positions with Colgate-Palmolive and Procter & Gamble in Korea, Asia and North America. He earned is MBA from Columbia University and an undergraduate degree in Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin. My state! Yay!
So — I am very excited and optimistic about New Avon LLC, and I am very honored to be a part of this new leg in Avon’s history. I really feel like I came “Home” at the perfect time.
And speaking of calling Avon home — Now’s the perfect time for you to begin a beauty business all your own. Join me in being an Avon Influencer and enjoy making money while doing something that you love – and get in on all the new excitement coming up. You’ll be in on all the new cutting edge projects, collaborations, and product lines that are already being released as we speak. (See my post about new collaborations.)
Other huge advantages to beginning a New Avon journey are:
Avon has rapid pay. You receive your commission 2 days after you have an online sale. No waiting – no minimum sale amount before you can receive your commission. And this is really cutting edge and so fabulous.
Avon supports their Representatives and encourages success – Both online and in-person sales. Avon now has Avon Social, which is a definite game changer. They have tons of advertising banners/pics ready for you to use on your social media and you can even schedule these to post to your FB, Twitter and Pinterest pages ahead of time, so you can have free time to work on other projects or go on vacation, and it will post for you. This is so awesome.

Avon has great selling tools for you to use such as Avon Brochures, and the very popular samples. You do have to purchase the samples and brochures, but they are very affordable and make a real impression.
Avon pays your State sales tax for you! HOORAY!! This is soooo helpful. All taxes from your online and in-person sales are paid on your behalf. You do still collect sales tax from your in-person sales, but you’ve already paid it in to Avon when you order. This is the BEST! Well, besides getting paid in 2 days.
You and your family can now afford health insurance. This was a real game changer for me. Quarterly open enrollment is now here again till September 30th. Affordable options start as low as $32.51 per month, and they offer dental coverage too. This is the perfect time to get signed up and become an active Avon Representative and get health insurance for your family.
There are also retirement plans, liability insurance (if you’re wanting to work fairs, events or kiosks), scholarship programs, office product discounts, and just on an on…
AND — You’re your own boss!! Set your own hours!! Earn as much as you want!! Get product discounts!! Be happy!! Yay!
If you have any interest in beginning (or starting again) your own beauty business, I’ll be happy to be your sponsor. You can visit the sign up page here, and you’ll be a Representative in just a few minutes – Easy Peasy! OH — and Avon has Avon U (University) where you can learn the business inside and out at your convenience with fun and quick videos plus it’s like taking a marketing course for free – they show you how to work the social media platforms – how to set up a FB business page – there’s just so much information and free training available, it’s worth the $30 just to take the courses, but we want to be successful entrepreneurs, don’t we? Yaaaassss!!!! Haha!
Okay gang — I’m off to open my box of Avon goodies that came UPS just a little while ago. I love when Avon arrives. That means I’ll have fun new things to show you very soon. Yay!
Stay fabulous till next time!
