My Story with AVON
I joined Avon in July 2005 when my children Megan and Sam were 3 and 5. I had previously been involved in another network marketing company and had been searching for the opportunity to build a flexible self-employed business round my family life. I knew Avon was for me from day one and in my first campaign as a representative I also qualified as a Sales Leader.
With two very young children I initially started building my team at a very steady pace, reaching Executive sales leader level after two years and in 2011 achieved Senior Executive level.
I have a fantastic team of over 1000 representatives and 40 sales leaders. Many who have become close friends as well as work colleagues, the joy of Avon is you are in business for yourself but never by yourself. We help and support each other to achieve our goals with AVON as my team’s success is my own success.
Achievements to date.
