I picked this book b/c I like Avon and buy it fairly frequently. But my reps are nothing like Birdie - where are my free samples?? I've never gotten any! Now back to the book - it's a collection of short stories and blog posts. Birdie and her boys are very likeable. But there is thread of sadness running through the book as Birdie struggles to cope to pay the bills, sort of losing her BFF, and dealing with very personal issues that I won't spoil for the reader. A good read for Avon fans and sellers!

Melissa, you definitely have to read this! I don't know how she managed to live off of Avon commissions. There is a great chapter on another rep that tries to invade her turf ;-) There is also a lot of funny stuff involving customers - i'm sure you must have fun/strange stories to tell too lol

Jen -

I loved the title when you first mentioned you were reading it because I have been selling AVON now for a year.
