Avon Representative Jill Saylor’s 5 Tips for Staying Beautiful Inside and Out


Typically, we don’t really talk about direct sales companies on A Girl’s Gotta Spa! However, I couldn’t help but be proud of a local Northeast PA woman who was recently spotlight on TV in an Avon commercial. So I asked Jill Saylor to send along her tips for staying beautiful both inside and out.

1. Stay Clear of Negative People. Misery really loves company and there will always be people who don’t understand the choices you make. Hold strong to your positive nature and what you really want. When I first started selling Avon, I wasn’t making a lot of money and I had friends who would discourage me, but in the end I kept pushing myself and now I’m extremely happy with how I’ve grown my Avon business. I have been able to financially support my children on my own doing everything from moving them to a bigger home to helping them buy their first cars. It just goes to show that if you keep going with your gut feeling and stay true to how you feel, things will work out.

2. Push through your fears. I used to be afraid of everything. I wasn’t able to get over my own fears until I made a choice to start with the small ones and take them on one at a time. Most importantly, I watched myself as I overcame them thinking how easy it was! Think about the worst case scenario. If you can push past that, you can start to question why you were afraid in the first place. As time goes on you continue to get stronger and before you know it, you are conquering your bigger fears.  

3. Forgive those who have caused you pain. It’s important to let go. Forgive but don’t forget because you want to learn from that experience. The longer you hold on to something negative, the further you keep yourself away from the positive things in life. A lot of people struggle with this. It is a hard thing to do. An exercise I put into practice is to look at the person, imagine good things happening to them, and be happy for them.

4. Take time for yourself. As women we tend to want to please everyone forgetting about ourselves. Because of this we end up bitter or possibly resenting people because we feel like we don’t have time for ourselves when in reality we’re the only ones to hold responsible for neglecting ourselves. If I don’t take care of myself, I’m no good to myself or anyone else, so I always make sure to pamper myself!

5. Believe in yourself and your abilities. We are given strengths and talents that we may not even know we have. Know that you are full of greatness and deserve a life full of happiness.

    Jill, you are so right on with your 5 tips. I share the same with my Avon down line. I have also been selling for 15 years. When one door closed another opened and I have never resented walking thru it since.

    Jill, Your words are inspiring. Words I will remember when people try to discourage me from trying to make a good living through Avon.

    Jill truly is an inspirational woman that I admire. She is a strong leader, has solid relationships with others and those that are fortunate enough to know and work with her must realize what a blessing she is in their lives.

    Thanks for the comment about negative people. I call them “dream thieves”, they have a manual & they go around & read it. I started selling in 12/11 & still can’t get off the ground but it will happen. 2 bouts with pnuemonia didn’t exactly help but I’m in for the long haul. Losers don’t like winners
