header_share_the_love_kit_incentive_mobile_en

Have you ever thought about starting a side hustle.  Direct sales is becoming a very popular alternative to finding a second job.

Join Today

People join direct sales for a variety of reasons.  A personal shopper joins to get discounts on the products they already use.  A mother of young children may join so she can stay at home, and still contribute to the finances of her family without having to pay for child care.  A college student may join to help pay for books and other expenses associate with school. A retired salesmen may join to stay connected, and some may join to replace their full time income.

It doesn’t matter which reason a person joins direct sales, everyone starts the same, by joining.

hp-nrc-share-the-love-starter-kit-mobile-en

Only $10 for a limited time

When joining direct sales be prepared to pay a start up cost.  This usually includes the cost of a start up kit which often includes promotional materials (books, brochures, handouts), perhaps examples of products to share show to customers, and maybe even samples.  

Every direct sales company has its own cost associated with the start up kit, and some even charge a annual fee to remain associated as a direct sales associate, representative, consultant, or any of the several terms used for those that being to direct sales.

After you review the different companies, products and philosophies, several companies may stand out as your favorites. For me after being involved in other direct sales companies I found a company that “fit” my lifestyle, my family, and had high quality products that I could feel proud to provide to friends and family.

p1Check out the Products

The company I found was Avon. Avon has been available for over 130 years, and almost everyone has used these products at some point in their lifetime.  

The diversity of products is astonishing.  Skin care, makeup, perfume, jewelry, bath and body, fashion, gifts, home decor, and most recently health and wellness. I’m not be limited to just a few categories of products, such as supplements or cookware.  Avon has been on the leading edge of skin care, makeup and perfume for years, so it just made sense that as they expanded into

diverse start areas, this company would be at the forefront of the industry.  And now with thousands of products and unique lines to choose from, Avon brochures are like visiting a huge department store right from your own home.

The start up cost of Avon is surprisingly low.  During the promotional “Share the Love” event you can start for Only $10 until August 20, 2018.  After that time the start up kit is only $25.
During this promote, Your new $10 starter kit* has all the essentials you need to get up and selling.

What is a facial peel?

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial skin is mostly treated, and scarring can be improved. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. (Wikipedia)

blog-skincare-header

The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, and was performed in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to help people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. Today, chemical facial peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.

In performing chemical peels, physicians apply alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol to the skin. Typically administered as a facial peel, a chemical peel enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation.prod_1192062_xl

Anew AHA Refining Cream

The cost of chemical facial peels varies from state to state and doctor to doctor.  The final cost of your procedure will depend on the type of peel you want, the condition of your skin, and other factors unique to your case. Light chemical peels can cost as low as $150, while deep chemical peels are generally the most expensive, as much as $6000.

An at-home peel can uncover brighter, more youthful skin without a trip to the spa or doc. Peels are intended to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, giving the face a smoother, more radiant appearance. When used correctly, they can minimize pores and even diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

My Start in Direct Sales.

For me starting this new adventure in direct sales was quite honestly not something that I had actually planned.

My direct sales (network marketing) story begins in a small rural town of 900 people in central Idaho.  

We had purchased a brick and mortar business with an annual sales of $35 thousand. In less than 8 years we had record sales of $95 thousand plus.   Then the recession hit, and our annual sales were back down to $44 thousand. I analyzed the numbers and discovered almost 15% of sales were coming from network marketing. It didn’t take a business degree to know what needed to be done.  We closed our brick and mortar business and i pursued direct sales with Avon full time.

With so many direct sales (network marketing) business, why did I choose Avon?

header_share_the_love_kit_incentive_mobile_en

Join AVON

First, my daughter and I had signed up as a team to help my mother a couple of years earlier.  When my mom needed me to take over more of her duties with Avon, I was able to increase my Avon sales to almost $10 annually, and I could do it from my home, not a traditional brick and mortar business.  Saving about a thousand dollars a month in overhead.

Second, Avon products have been available for over 130 years, and almost everyone has used these products at some point in their lifetime.  The diversity of products is astonishing.

I knew it would not be limited to just a few categories of products, such as supplements or cookware.  Avon has been on the leading edge of skin care, makeup and perfume for years, so it just made sense that as they expanded into diverse areas, this company would be at the fore front of the industry.  And now with thousands of products and unique lines to choose from, Avon brochures are like visiting a huge department store right from your own home.

Third, the compensation plan is one of the best I’ve seen.  Avon representatives begin earning commissions on their first dollar.  Unlike some companies, representatives have no minimum sales amounts to receive  commission (discount). Many Avon representatives are simply “personal shoppers” meaning, they join just to buy the products they use at a discount.  There is no minimum monthly purchase requirements, and commissions are based on size of order.

Why I order my AVON Espira Vitamin Supplements Online

PIt might seem strange for the Avon lady to order her vitamins from her own website, but that’s just what I do.  There are several really good reasons I do it this was way.

First, I don’t forget to order.  We all know how busy life gets, and how sometimes even with a daily planner, things get missed.  I personally know what it’s like to take the last vitamin out of a bottle, and think to myself “oh crap I forgot to order this month’.  

prod_5357862_xl

By ordering online, and selecting auto ship,  my Avon Espira Daily Essentials are delivered automatically every 30 days. So I have a new supply, just when I need it.  No more of the “oh crap” moments.

Second, I can save money.  Yes it’s less expensive when I have my  Avon Espira Daily Vitamin Supplements automatically shipped to my home.  When I choose auto ship I save 10% of the cost of each vitamin supplement.  Ten percent might not seem like a lot of savings, but when I get the savings simply for using the convenience of auto ship, it just makes sense.

prod_5357856_xl

Third reason, Free shipping.  Yes that right, I get my Avon Espira Daily Multivitamin shipped for free, right to my mailbox.  When I order my vitamins with customer orders, the cost is added to my overall sales, and thus adds to shipping charges. So it just makes sense for me to have them shipped through the auto ship program for free.

Fourth reason, I still get the 40% commission.  Believe it or not, even when I have my Avon Espira Womens Daily Essential shipped automatically, I receive a credit on my account.  This helps me keep my personal use Vitamins separate from customer products.  After all, I would still be spending that money on Daily Vitamin Supplements no matter where I purchased them from.  I just prefer to buy them from myself, on my own website.

Could you use a more Restful Sleep?

I really thought I was sleeping good through the night.  I was getting about 7-8 hours of sleep, and occasionally woke up before alarm clock.  I know how important sleep is to my overall health.

Research shows that 7+ hours of sleep per night equates to better health and performance. But let’s face reality, sometimes squeezing in 4 to 5 hours of sleep is all that is possible.  A good night’s sleep plays a key role in the ability to learn, solve problems and maintain a healthy mental outlook. So what can you do when squeezing in less hours for sleep is all that is possible for the day. The best thing to do is to make those 4 or 5 hours count.

As I get older, I’m trying to do more things to increase my health, so thought I’d give the New Avon Espira Restful Sleep a try.  

I really didn’t think it was making that much of a difference, until I didn’t have it.  My husband was away on a business trip, and took our bottle with him. OMG… I had trouble getting to sleep, hit the snooze button on the alarm and yawned through the day.  I felt tired all day long, was anxious,  short tempered, and became angry over the smallest things.

Get Restful Sleep Now… Only $18

After researching the main ingredients in New AVON Espira Restful Sleep, I understood why I felt so crummy without it.

Melatonin

Melatonin’s main job in the body is to regulate night and day cycles or sleep-wake cycles. Darkness causes the body to produce more melatonin, which signals the body to prepare for sleep. Light decreases melatonin production and signals the body to prepare for being awake. Some people who have trouble sleeping have low levels of melatonin. Adding melatonin from supplements might help them sleep.

Magnesium

The sleep-promoting, stress-reducing, disease-protecting power of this essential mineral, Magnesium plays a widespread role in the human body, helping regulate and facilitate many essential functions. One of magnesium’s most important roles is as an enabler of healthy enzyme function.  People with low magnesium often experience restless sleep, waking frequently during the night.

Chamomile

Relaxes nerves and soothes the nervous system.  It fights harmful bacteria, and has the ability to boost your immune system.  It has pain-relieving and antispasmodic properties. Chamomile is a gentle relaxant and acts as an effective natural sedative.  Believe or not, it is packed with antioxidants which helps boost your skin health. It accelerates cell and tissue regeneration, helps tighten the pores and slows down the ageing process.  

Passion Flower Extract

One study found that blood pressure levels were significantly reduced work the use of Passion Flower.  It’s believed that certain compounds found in the flower may interact with receptors in the brain to promote relaxation.  

Another study indicated that passion flower extract was an effective treatment for managing anxiety with less side effects than synthetic treatments. 

Hops Flower Extract

Hops has a sedative effect on your central nervous system. It has the capacity to reduce locomotor activity and body temperature  to promote sleep. It may also have estrogenic properties that may reduce night sweats thus assisting with sleep.

Vitamin C helps repair sun damage

With summer months starting, we all know how dry and damaged our skin can get.  Many of us spend afternoons working in the yard or in the garden. This afternoon sun can cause severe damage to our Exposed Skin. And it seems our face is exposed to the skin year round.

Although I believe Sunscreen is a must, year round.  It’s also important to assist our skin in repairing damage from day to day living.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, occurs naturally in foods such as citrus fruit, tomatoes, potatoes, and leafy vegetables. But why is it important?  Vitamin C is important for bones and connective tissues, muscles, and blood vessels.

Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron, which is needed for red blood cell production. That’s why so many iron supplements also contain vitamin c, without it our body cannot absorb the iron even when we take it in a tablet form.

Blaming Others

Blaming others.

We all know those people.  They probably jumped right into your mind when you read the title.

They seem to bbe the ones that just drain your energy, sometimes because you become the blunt of their failures, because let’s face it, it’s not “their” fault.

The other reason they seem to drain our energy, is that sometimes it’s really hard to keep up with all their excuses.  

prod_5369394_xl

shop natural energy now

You’ve probably heard them all. It’s because of the friend that didn’t invite them to the party.  It’s because of the loan officer that wouldn’t give them any money. It’s because of the boss that won’t give them a raise.  It’s because of the construction flagger that wouldn’t let them cut the line. It’s because of the girl that said no. It’s because of the ex wife that wants more child support.  It’s because of the accountant that won’t pay the bills. And the list goes on, and on.

prod_5357890_xl

Shop espira calm now

The bottom line is, some where, some how those people learned to blame everyone around them, rather than accept responsibility for their own actions.

I one heard someone say, if it wasn’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all.  And yes we all have those moments when bad luck just seems to be following us around like a dark cloud.  The difference is in how we respond to the situation.

Even in the movie “Titanic” it was said “a real man creates his own luck”.  For most of us this is a very true fact of life.

Don’t get me wrong, we all make mistakes, we all suffer from failures, and yes we all have those bad luck moments.  The key to success is to take responsibility for those mistakes, failures and yes even bad luck. When we accept that responsibility, it drastically changes the outcome.  When we realize that yes, it could be my fault, it opens up the door to the possibility of change. If we are responsible for a bad situation, then we can also change that bad situation into a good one.

If we accept that we can change the outcome, then we can make it happen.  

prod_5357884_xl

shop espira restful sleep now

So back to those that blame everyone else for their failings.  When or if, they ever accept the responsibility for their own life. They stop dragging is down, they stop sucking our energy.  Unfortunately this is not something we can just magically make happen. Until those people change their attitude, they will continue to drain you.  The best way to deal with “ain’t my faulters” is to avoid them. If that’s not possible, try hard not to get sucked into their pity party.

What is Lyme Disease

What is Lyme Disease?

Monica Nuxoll, May 2018

Lyme Disease is usually caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria. In the United States it is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected blacklegged, tick also known as a deer tick. 

The bacteria is transmitted through the saliva of an infected tick. With more than 200,000 cases each year in the United States, you have a greater chance of getting bit by a tick if you live near heavily grassy or wooded areas or spend time Outdoors where ticks are prevalent.

Note if a tick bites you you may notice a small, red lump at the site, this is normal reaction to the bite and does not necessarily indicate an infection the infected tick has to attach and feed for at least 36 hours to spread the bacteria.

dermnet_rf_photo_of_tick_bite

The first sign of Lyme disease is a rash it can appear anywhere from 3 days up to a month after a tick bite the average amount of time before a rash appears is around one week.

 

Besides a rash, early signs of Lyme disease include chills and high fever.  Fatigue is another symptom. If you feel excessively tired with no apparent reason, it may be a symptom of Lyme disease.

If left untreated Lyme disease infections can lead to arthritis, shortness of breath, and irregular heartbeat.

Reducing exposure to ticks is the best defense against Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and other tick-borne infections.

You and your family can take several steps to prevent and control Lyme disease. Well it is a good idea to take preventive measures against ticks year-round, be extra vigilant in warm months from April through September.

Tips to prevent and control exposure to ticks include, avoiding direct contact with ticks, avoiding wooded and Brushy areas with high grass and leaf litter, walk in the center of trails, and use a tick repellent on skin and clothing.

For best results without the use of DEET use a repellent that contains the picardian or IR3535 on exposed skin for protection that last several hours. Always follow product instructions. Parents should apply this tick repellent to their children, avoiding hands, eyes and mouth.

Why I Donate my Hair

Why I Donate my Hair

Monica Nuxoll, May 20th, 2018

Hair Donation is an often overlooked form of donation that requires more research than locating your nearest donation box. However it is also a donation that can make a huge difference.

IMG_20180521_1635_36

Shop Avon Hair Care

Reasons to Donate Your Hair

Whether someone loses hair from chemotherapy or as a result of a medical condition that affects more than just their appearance. In fact studies show that losing hair during cancer treatment makes patients feel sicker and affects their self-esteem drastically. People with hair loss have higher levels of anxiety and depression, lower self-esteem and poor body image just to name a few. In addition hair loss can errode self-confident and limit them from experience life. With an injured self-image, attitude toward treatment and their physical response to it can be negatively affected also.

The traditional solution was synthetic wigs built from man-made fibers. As one might expect,  synthetic wigs do not always boost feelings of wellness or confidence. Synthetic wigs are ready available but unfortunately, are often stiff and do not mimic the look of real hair so organizations began using natural hair to address these problems. Natural hair donations allow for a broader range of real hair colors and textures and real hair wigs are much more lifelike.

Remember you are giving more than hair you are giving the gift of confidence.

There are few more personal forms of donating than donating your hair. While it may take some time to see the direct impact of your contribution – most ponytails go through three to four months of processing – the result is a beautiful wig for a woman or a child. These natural hair wigs increase confident, help patients suffering from illness feel better and allow the wearer’s to lead more active lives. What’s more special than that.

On average it takes anywhere from 15 to 30 donations to create a single wig. Approximately 2 to 3 inches of each hair strand is used to sew the hair to the wig making it essential that the entire strand of hair must be usable.
