Did you know that Avon, the iconic beauty brand has a line of gorgeous home decor? If you answered no, you are not alone! Most people categorize the Avon name with beauty, skincare and maybe fragrances, but the New Avon LLC offers savvy shoppers so much more. That’s why I’m excited to share their current sweepstakes for gorgeous dinnerware and decorative accents with you.

Mother’s Day is almost here and I just had to share a great gift idea that I recently discovered while working my other job as an Avon Representative. I know most of you have heard of this iconic beauty brand, but do you know the giving side of Avon? The Avon Foundation for Women launched its Speak out against Domestic Violence program back in 2004.  One of its main pillars is to fund shelters across the United States that provide safe spaces for women and children in imminent danger where they can heal emotionally and physically, move toward self-sufficiency, and learn positive coping skills.

Happy Friday! As I sit in my office looking out at the snow swirling around my windows, I’m reminded again of how lucky I am to have the ability to work from home when and how I choose.  It’s not always easy this Wahm path, but it’s something I believe in; which is why I decided to add an additional income stream to my blog earnings this year!  I wanted a way to get more involved with my community offline while assisting my family financially and Avon was the perfect choice for me.  If you’ve been thinking of more income in 2016, I invite you to join me and my Avon team!

Avon Beauty for a purpose
Avon has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  I love their products and I’ve sold it in the past, but I wasn’t prepared for all the major advancements in the selling tools and support Avon has implemented. Selling Avon has never been simpler! They give you all the tools you need, including a free e-store and the basic starter kit is only $15!  

Being an Avon Representative can be as simple as sharing Avon’s pre-written posts on your social media channels, or if you want to earn more, selling in person too.  If you’ve ever worked with affiliate links and short-term cookies, you will appreciate the amazing earning opportunity you can have with Avon.

Avon Is:

“This is the company that puts mascara on lashes and food on the tables. That fights wrinkles with one hand and Breast Cancer with the other. That knows the value of a perfect lip, but still opens its mouth and speaks out against Domestic Violence and for women's financial independence. This is the company that not only brings beauty to doors, but also opens them. The company that supports 6 million Representatives worldwide. This is Avon. The company that for more than 125 years has stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and above all for women”.

Join the Sisterhood of Avon Representatives:
Being an Avon Representative isn’t just about selling beauty products. It’s about a community of passionate women. It’s about being empowered and independent. When you join Avon as a Representative, you’re not just joining a company; you’re joining a sisterhood of 6 million women from around the world.”

Joining my team has never been easier and takes about 5 minutes.  Sign up today and for just $15, start your business today! Go here and fill out the form making sure you use LKINSMAN in the reference code box so you'll join my team!

Our starter kit gives you all the essentials to get you up and running. Register on our exclusive site for Representatives, which is your go-to resource for info, tools, training and ordering. And, you’ll be paired with an Avon sales leader to support and help you every step of the way.

October finds me Pink and Blue

in , , , , , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Thursday, October 17, 2013

To say this has not been a “normal” October for most Americans is probably an understatement what with our government squabbling and causing all manner of hardships all across our nation. I am in no way a political debater or writer, so I will just say, I am glad EVERYBODY got to go back to work today and I hope you are enjoying some of nature's beauty that October brings.

I wanted to take time out today to share a part of my “other” job with you. Near the end of August, I rejoined Avon, (you can read more about my Avon story here) and in these short few weeks, I have reconnected with old customers and friends in such a positive way. 

Several have told me they missed shopping with me and talking with me. Sure, everybody knows Avon and likes their products- but when you have ladies telling you that it just wasn’t the same as shopping with me; I cannot tell you how empowering and uplifting their comments are! 

This leads me to why October finds me Pink and Blue.

Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade is world renowned and I take pride in being a little fish in a big pond of caring and giving individuals who work tirelessly to help find a cure.
 I invite you to please visit Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade page to learn about ways you can get involved. I would love it if you visited my Pink page and see if there is a product or two you would like to purchase to do your part. 

Now I would like to talk about the Blue part of my October. 

Did you know that October is also Speak out against Domestic Violence month? 

Speak Out Against
Domestic Violence

As a Mom of two daughters, I find that as they get older the fear of dating abuse and or sexual violence becomes a tough topic that I have to address. I “lightly” touched on the subject with my 14 year old and will cross that same bridge with my 10 year old when I feel she is ready.  

What is Domestic Violence? 

According to Avon: "Domestic violence is a pattern of abuse with the goal of establishing or maintaining power and control over the victim. It can happen occasionally or continuously and often worsens over time. Domestic violence includes physical, sexual, mental, and financial abuse. It knows no boundaries: Domestic violence can affect anyone, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religion.
To help bring this issue out of the shadows, the Avon Foundation for Women launched Speak Out Against Domestic Violence, an initiative to build awareness, educate, and improve prevention and direct service programs. Through the end of 2012, in the U.S. alone, we have provided more than $33 million for the domestic violence cause."
Parents: Especially Moms! If you have a teen or older tween, perhaps it's time for you to have this talk too.  Don’t wait too long! Kids are learning “stuff” at earlier ages than most of us did. Let’s help keep our kids safe by learning all we can about this silent problem.
 Please visit Avon’s Speak out Against Violence Campaign and see how you can help this important cause here.  I would love it if you stopped by my Blue page to see if you would like to purchase any of our special empowerment pieces.
I'm ordering myself this beautiful Butterfly Umbrella.  It's only $10.00 and it will help fund help. 100% of net profits ($6.62) will be donated to the Avon Foundation for programs dedicated to ending violence against women. And just so you know, Avon Reps. do not earn commissions on any of the Pink or Blue products. :)

Do you need help?

Four little words that to some may be very hard to answer. But, If you are reading this and you are a victim of domestic violence, no matter how small: please reach out to somebody.  Don’t stay silent. Please. After reading the study results Avon conducted in September of this year, silence is not the answer! Avon wants to help. We Avon Reps. want to help. If you visit this page, there are lists of help line numbers in categories to help you.

For Teens: 

Love doesn't hurt. Love is Respect.

I know you think parents and adults just don't get it and hey, maybe we don't, but we want to- Try talking to us! If you can't yet, please visit this interactive page full of quizzes and resources that may help you find your voice.
Be Safe not Silent

Lastly, if you are reading this and think Avon might be a good fit for you too, I invite you to join my Avon family.  

Thank you in advance for helping me and Avon support these very worthy causes this month and throughout the year. Do you have a charity or cause to share? Please feel free to let me know in your comment.

September finds me shifting gears

in , , , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Happy September dear readers. Fall is almost here, can you feel it? I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing Labor Day weekend and hope you did too. 


I needed to relax, because my August zoomed right on past me with a full plate of work, family and school activities leaving very little time to fret about the state of my blog.

But fret I did. 

See, in the blogging world, August was a really bad month for me. Truth be told, the whole summer was bad. And while I had originally thought I would share all the details with you because the devil is in the details; ultimately I decided on a condensed version.

So here goes: I had my na├»ve little bubble popped and was schooled on how blogging and networking with the big girls and boys really goes down. 

From buying Twitter followers to ghost writers, to whole teams churning out content and then sharing it  24/7, I have had my eyes opened.  I naively thought that some of the bloggers I aspired to be like actually wrote most of their content or at the very least, shared their own Pinterest pins. But no, most of them hire others to do that.

I’m not saying all bloggers are doing this, and I’m not saying that outsourcing and delegating are bad - I’m saying I don’t want to do this to be a professional blogger. I don’t have the time or the money to feed the blogger beast. 

So, now what you say?

I’m totally taking the pressure of myself and my little blog that could by adding another income stream. One I know from past experience works well for me, Avon. 

Yep! I’m an Avon lady! 

Shop my store

I just rejoined on the 28th of August and on the 29th I got my first order! Now that is a positive ROI (return on investment) I can handle.

 I won’t change things up too much here on the blog, but I will share a product of the week with you.

 If you have been thinking of adding a new income stream, I invite you to join my Avon team. You can read more about it here. It’s only 10 dollars to join and I know lots of Bloggers who are also in direct sales. Inbox me at 4lkinsatgmaildotcom with any questions you may have or fill out my contact form here

I hope September finds you safe and secure financially and otherwise. But if you are discontent, I urge you to take out a pen and paper and plot a change of course. September is the perfect time of year for new beginnings.
