Renewing Our Engagement

So officially we were engaged in March of this year after the St. Patricks day parade in Lombard. The local Kmart was going out of business an I was told to pick out a ring because it was cheap. My man sure is a romantic lol. But yesterday as we stood on the highest cliff of Garden of the Gods in Shawnee National Forest, Frank says to me, “This is where I should’ve given you your ring.” I told him it’s never too late and gave him my ring. In the midst of the beautiful fall colors, he said the words I’ve been waiting eight years to hear. “Will you marry me Tara?” The answer is the same but the overwhelming feeling of love was different. I knew I loved this man more than anything but I now know with absolute certainty there will never be anyone else to complete me the way he does. There are no words strong enough to describe what I feel.

Moving on up!

I’ve been with Avon for just over six months now.  I absolutely love it!  I have a wonderful Upline that is super supportive and never lets me go with a question unanswered.  My downline team is also amazing.  They are easy to get ahold of and real “go-getters” in their own sales.  Because of the support I received from both teams, I have progressed into the first title of leadership in the Avon company.  I can officially say that I am an Avon Independent Sales Representative and Unit Leader.  I hope to keep progressing onward and upward with this company.

I want to continue sharing my business and success with everyone I come in contact with.  I want other people to experience how amazing being an Avon Rep really is.  It is so much more than door-to-door sales or makeup.  It is about empowering yourself and learning that you can do anything you set your mind to.  I did not have much confidence in myself starting out.  I still find it a little awkward to start a conversation with a stranger but I am working on it.  Avon is not just makeup, perfume, and lotion (although they do have some amazing products!).  Avon has given me not only a way to make some extra pocket money, but a way to build confidence in myself and a great winning team!

Wake up… Avon Calling

It was difficult to wake this morning, knowing the countless things I wanted to do. Yet there still is only 24 hours in the day. After my morning routine of bathing, hair, makeup, and breakfast, it’s out the door to my almost step-daughter’s softball game. “Where is your uniform?” Of course she left it at her mom’s house so we need to drive 10 miles in the opposite direction for her uniform. Balls……

But as I sit in my cool 2007 Chevy van, nicknamed the “Avonmobile” I start to get excited about the rest of my day. A new SAMs club store opened by my house and I will be going there for lunch. After that, my almost mother in law and I are driving to an Avon event dubbed “Celebrate the Season.” I get a free goodie bag and get to preview the newest products coming out this quarter. Time to start thinking Christmas presents! I am the most excited about Avon’s new perfume, Passion. I am a sucker for smelly stuff. I will make sure to take many pictures and share with all of you.

As always, please support my business and take a look at my website and facebook page.
