Many new representatives (and most of us long time reps) like to go shopping in our brochures.  This is fine, in fact I encourage it because we should be using Avon  products if we are going to sell Avon products. There are very few personal care items in my house that are not Avon.  However, it is also common for representatives, especially new representatives to spend so much on their own purchases that they have no profit left over at the end of the campaign, and in some cases end up paying out of pocket. 

While there is nothing wrong with paying yourself in product, it can make it harder to see how much you are getting for the effort you put into your business. So take a moment now to take a look back at your first couple of campaigns and set up a plan going forward to keep track of how much you are paying yourself in product.  

The easiest way to do this is to write up an order for your personal purchases each campaign.  This would be a separate receipt from the things you order for your business like brochures, bags and samples. Your cost for the items is how much more in cash you would have had if you had not purchased the items for yourself. 

Of course, while it's true you are not putting that money in your wallet, you also didn't have to buy those products elsewhere.  You also probably saved money by buying the products from yourself rather than a retail store because most of our products are less expensive than the competition and you got them at a discount. 

What questions do you have about this or any other aspect of your Avon business? I'm always happy to hear from you.
