Hello! Happy Monday! Welcome to our Mommy Monday feature for this week! Each week, we interview a mom business owner and get to know her a little better! We like to find out how she balances life with children and a business! We also like to hear about the marketing strategies that are working for her! Hopefully, this provides a little bit of inspiration to all of the other hard working moms out there! If you’d like to be considered for this feature, send us an e-mail! We’d love to learn about your business, too!

Today’s mom entrepreneur is Mary Bertsch.

What services/products do you offer?
Avon sells beauty products for your whole family. Beauty and fashion bargains include Avon Anew, an Avon skin care product and Skin So Soft, an Avon bath product. Other popular products are Avon makeup, women fashions, women and men’s fragrances, kid’s clothes and bath products, Avon jewelry, home fashions, and breast cancer, empowerment, and inspirational products.

How do you balance family and business?
Avon is perfect for anyone who has a family. I work my Avon business while running errands. I also market Avon online when I am at home. I don’t even have to leave home to work. I also work my Avon business around helping my daughter and babysitting my precious granddaughters.

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?
Work your business consistently. Never give up. Make yourself weekly goals. You will love the rewards you receive. Remember everyone started at the bottom. Be encouraged by top reps in your business.

How do your market your business?
I promote Avon by handing out brochures at different businesses I stop at. Everyone knows me as the Avon Lady at our local gym, where I leave Avon brochures. I also love to market Avon online. If you are active in social media, promote Avon to your friends. With Avon, you get a free website to sell to anyone in the US. If you love to write, start up a beauty blog and share the new products and brochures. Today everyone loves to shop online.
