7 Tips to be your own Boss

 Being your own boss can be the ultimate luxury, but it’s a lot of hard work, too. Check out the 7 tips below to keep you and your business in check and on track.

Creating a daily routine and staying organized are key when you have your own business. It could be something as simple as making the same breakfast every day and clearing specific times of the week for meetings, emails, phone calls and research.

You can even schedule out when and how often you post to your business social media accounts with content planners and scheduling apps.

No matter what type of business you’re in, you’ve got to become an expert in the product or service. Our Reps participate in regular sessions on everything Avon through AVON U our training platform, and the Avon USA Representatives Facebook page. Each week, we provide new tools to learn the ins and outs on our products, selling strategies, digital tools, team- and relationship-building and more! The only way you become an expert on your business is by constantly staying in the know.

To take advantage of our fun training tools, join Avon today! Become a Rep.

Whether they’ve shopped with you once or many times, your customers should always feel valued. Keep the conversation going by sending customers emails with updates, new launches, personalized recommendations and exclusive offers—that way, you’ll keep them coming back for more.

Our latest innovation, the customizable Digital Catalog, lets Reps create a truly tailored experience with personalized recommendations for each individual customer. And for the first time, Reps can really take the reins and create their own offers and promotions with the new Promotion Tool, anytime they like. The Reps who are dedicated to building customer relationships know exactly what their customers will like, and what’ll help them earn a sale.

When you’re in charge of your business, you’ve got to step up to the plate, build your team and surround yourself with likeminded go-getters who share your vision. At Avon, the most successful Reps build their teams by recruiting new Reps—allowing them to grow their businesses, reach new Avon achievement levels and boost their earnings. Plus, it’s easier than ever to bring in new people with our $0 sign-up!

Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there! You’re not just an integral part of your business, you’re also in charge of forming and maintaining your brand’s image.

You can represent your brand by taking a video of yourself and posting it to Instagram Stories, Facebook Live, or any other social media outlet that will resonate with your customers. Promoting yourself is a great way to create brand awareness, help your followers engage with your business, and make your brand more relatable.

The Avon Reps who are most effective on social draw on their creativity and frequently share posts featuring their favorite products, makeup how-tos, inspiring quotes and more.

When you are your own boss, you’ll feel the ups and downs of your business. This can be stressful, but you can prepare for tough times before they arrive.

Have plans in place for tackling any challenges. This could mean brainstorming ideas for new marketing strategies or even carving out more time for building your business.

And remind yourself that customers and sales are always dynamic. You’ll lose customers just as fast as you’ll gain new ones. Similarly, your sales will also hit highs and lows. It’s simply part of the process.

Running a business is all about balance. Some weeks, you’ll work seven days straight and other weeks, you’ll work four days. Take advantage of your flexible schedule and spend free time with friends and family when you can.

It’s also really important to take some ‘me time.’ Don’t be afraid to let yourself relax and recharge—everyone needs it. We like to reward our top Avon Reps with special trips to unbelievable locations. They deserve some time to celebrate their incredible achievements! Plus, we like to treat them to amazing gifts when they reach new levels, too (everything from their choice of cool tech to diamond necklaces!).

The work is hard, but the rewards and satisfaction are worth it.

Underwear that Fits Correctly ARTICLE: There is one very easy trick to making all your clothes look good (even when you’re wearing your own 34-year-old Duran Duran t-shirt – the oldest piece of clothing I own by a very, very long way). That number 1 trick? Get your underwear right. Oh, I can’t tell you how many years I spent wearing the wrong kind of underwear. The wrong size bra, ill-fitting knickers, the wrong  shape  bras… I’ve learnt a new trick just recently – but first, that t-shirt! My original Duran Duran Seven and the Ragged Tiger tour t-shirt is mine –  from 1983 .
