Meet Jule Berry-Whiting, Your AVON Rep!
|AVON Rep Jule Berry-Whiting|
Hello! My name is Jule Berry-Whiting and I reside in Leesburg, Virginia. I joined AVON in October 2015 and have been overwhelmed with the amount of benefits and perks available to us AVON Representatives. It is truly amazing to be a part of a company that has been going strong for over 130 years! Here is a little Q & A that will allow you to get to know me better...
Why did you choose the AVON opportunity?
AVON is a name that I have known for years. My mother was an AVON customer for many years and always wore makeup and many different types of perfume. AVON was a familiar name in my household growing up. When she became ill and stopped wearing makeup and all, I wanted to be the one who reintroduce her to the brand and get her back in the spirits of fixing herself up. Plus, joining AVON was very affordable and allowed me to spend my money investing in my business rather than having to purchase a huge kit of products that I my future customers probably weren't interested in.
What is your favorite thing about being an AVON Representative?
I love that AVON carries multiple types of products to suit any and everybody. It is also great that AVON allows you to work your business in various ways: free online eStore, offline with catalogs, flea markets, yard sale groups, etc. You don't have to hold parties in order to successful with AVON which is great because I'm not a huge fan of the party scene.
What career path did you initially want to take?
For a long time I was interested in becoming a pharmacist. I'm scared to be a doctor and have patients directly under my care. Being a pharmacist would allow me to help others in a more indirect way. More recently, I have dreams of owning my own storefront or online business.
What are your hobbies?
I have so many things I enjoy doing. Some of my hobbies include: listening to music, writing, reading, digital clothing design, and researching my family tree.
What motivates you to work hard?
Honestly, I have always had this drive to excel at everything that I do. Of course, I'm not amazing at everything I actually love to do but if I want something bad enough, I will always try my best.
What are your favorite AVON products?
I love AVON's jewelry! I am also obsessed with the Big & False Lash Mascara. I also love the bath and body products... especially those from AVON's upscale mark. brand! You can find all of these in my AVON eStore!
What is one AVON product you couldn't live without?
Big & False Lash mascara! I love that it's a fiber mascara and makes my eyelashes extra long without over-doing it.
What's your favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving! When I was growing up, it was always the biggest holiday for my family where family from all over would get together have a huge feast and laugh for hours listening to the older family members tell stories about their childhood!
Is your glass half full or half empty?
Half full for sure. I try to stay positive in every aspect of life even when it seems like my entire world is crashing down.
What was your favorite subject in school?
Science! I especially loved doing the science labs. Everyone loves a great chemical reaction, right?
What's the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?
I would have to say the most unusual thing I have ever eaten was frog legs. They actually taste like chicken. Would I eat them again? Probably not.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I veer more on the side of an introvert. I could be content for long periods of time by myself. When I am around people that I trust then I can definitely be the life of the party.
What was your first job?
I actually had two jobs very close together. I guess you can say I am money motivated. I worked in a clothing department store as a sales associate and I worked at a small, local pharmacy for a little bit, too.
How many languages do you speak?
I speak English, of course. I actually took 5 years of Spanish in school. I cannot speak Spanish very well anymore but I can eavesdrop (just being honest) and read it pretty well.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years, I see myself running a successful business with multiple salespeople on my team. Maybe even multiple locations or markets where I sell products.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
WOW! That would be truly amazing! I would get myself out of debt, open or expand my dream business, and work on providing services to help others (especially minorities) get out of debt or away from homelessness or away from poverty altogether.
In the evening, would you rather play a game, visit a relative, watch a movie, or read?
I would like to watch a movie. It's relaxing to just sit back and watch a movie after a long day.
