I opened a separate bank account for my Avon money. My daughter asked why I couldn't use the account I already have. I tried to explain I could but it's not very smart. I'm not certain she understands. I had about $100 worth of checks from customers and added another $500 of my own money. That sounds like a lot until you start thinking about how many businesses you can open with a $500 investment. It's a very short list. Avon only requires a $10 investment to get started, but I'm trying to build mine up with a little extra.
I now have a free debit card for my business account so if I'm shopping for business cards, rubber stamps, or paying postage it's coming out of my Avon account. Since I was an existing Capital One customer, my first order of checks was free as well.
There are a lot of new colors and fragrances coming up. In the campaign 3 brochure there is a new Imari fragrance, 2 new Nailwear Pro colors (Gunmetal and Night Violet), and 4 new shades of Ultra Color Rich Lipstick (Perfect Red, Iced Cocoa, Burnished Gold, and Oxford Wine). There is also a new Naturals scent - violet and lychee. The new Naturals scent plus some old Naturals favorites, bubble bath, and a variety of Skin So Soft will be on sale buy 2 get 1 free or buy 3 get 2 free in campaign 3. The current campaign brochures can always be viewed on my website. To receive an email at the beginning of each new campaign, register at my store and subscribe to email alerts.
