My cell phone is only used for my Avon business calls. I was tired and heard the phone ringing. being that Adrian will call me on it i thought it was him. I hate to answer any calls other than my Avon calls because my phone uses minutes. Well I got up and it was a new customer. The lady asked if I live here in town I said yes. she said she had two books and asked me who Alan was. I said,I don't know. So,she asked if I take cash or money order. I said it is up to you. She said,She has a lot of stuff to order. I am hoping she calls back with it.

That is really good that you may have picked up a new customer. I really don't understand the part of when she asked who Alan was. I wonder if she meant Adrian. I think that she might have confused names. Maybe he gave her the book. Let us know if she orders from you.

I hope she will. I think the next time you answer a call from a customer you should have that passion or the like to answer it. That way you can gain more customers on the avon products that you are selling.

I know what you mean about minutes as I dropped my plan lower so I have to be careful about minutes. I use to have unlimited but can't afford it any longer. So I know what it is like for the phone to ring and not know if it is important or not. I hope she does call you back with a big order as this will be added commission for you towards your Christmas budgeting.

Wow! That was great! Thanks God you took the phone I hope she call you tomorrow make a big buy!! In this time of the year we need money because the vacation and holidays are near. My husband and me with our son plan to go in a cruise. And besides he have the custom of give gifts on christmas I don't use to do that because I come from a country where we just say happy christmas and that's it. But let's see how this buy goes with you I hope you sell a lot in this season, in Avon they make a lot of sales in this season I used to buy and sell Avon in the past.

So, does that mean you have competition? I hope she does decide to call Alan. Maybe first one to answer the phone will win. Hehehe. Hopefully you have a new customer. Alot of stuff to order too. Why didn't she order then? Curious people want to know. LOL Hope she does call you back.
