Dawn Perry is a loving Mom out of Louisville, KY. I’ve been following Dawn for over a year and what caught my attention was how silly and sweet she was. I consider this gorgeous Avon rep a friend. I asked her inspirations In our interview.
In your own words, what or who inspires you?
My son inspires me every day! He's my reason for breathing and I would not be the woman I am today without him. I've changed so much since he was born 19 months ago. I'm so much more confident in myself, my body, my looks, my abilities. I work harder now than I ever have. I even started my Avon journey shortly after his birth. I want to be the person he looks up to the most. The person he most respects. Plus, seeing the world through his "new" eyes is beautiful and helps put a fresh spin on old things.
You and I are both working Mom's. I know it's tough to juggle everything sometimes. Tell me one thing you do that no knows when you're feeling the most beautiful?
When I'm feeling the most beautiful, it's usually because I've had a little pep talk with myself. I'll go over all the things I like about myself in my head, and, when I'm done, I put on a big, bright smile.
With the women's rights movement continuing to grow, I hope it means more of us will be kind to one another. How would your BFF describe how you've changed from the first time you met and now?
My best friend would say I'm an all-around kinder person now than I used to be. I'm very blunt and generally speak my mind, but I didn't always have the smoothest of deliveries. I've made a conscious effort to be nicer, kinder, and show more love than I have in the past and it's made my life so much better. When you put love out there, you get love back.
I love your silliness. You have the funniest memes sometimes as well. What's the last thing you saw that made you laugh?
Thank you for the compliment! I love being silly and having fun! I can't think of anything specific that made me laugh because I laugh a LOT, but I'm sure it was something my son said or did. He's almost 2 1/2 and his little personality is coming in full force. He's such a little clown and he makes me laugh all the time.
What are some 2018 goals for you?
In 2018, I want to make strides in my Avon business. I want to quit my day job one day and do Avon full time, so I need to work harder this year and put some things in place to help me get there. I also want to do yoga. I need to be healthier (mind, body, and spirit), and I feel like yoga will help me do that.
