My Avon Story
I started Selling Avon in January 2008 with the hopes that I could eventually turn my Avon business into a full-time career. At the time I signed up to Become an Avon Representative, I was working full-time as a Marketing Manager at a privately owned technology company. My son was born in 2007 and I was looking for a way to Work from Home. With a degree in Marketing from the University of Illinois at Chicago, I had taken several courses in marketing, management, and entrepreneurship, and was confident I could build a successful Avon business. I had tried several work from home businesses, but Avon was the only company I really enjoyed being a part of and I knew was the right fit for me and my family.
A year later, I became a Unit Leader and really started to focus on building my sales. I recall looking at the President’s Recognition Program booklet and really wanting to be one of the top sellers earning those exciting trips offered by Avon every year. Around the same time, I came across the LABC opportunity and my heart was set. In September of 2009 at the age of 28, I took a leap of faith and opened Seagren’s Avon Beauty Center at CherryVale Mall in Rockford, Illinois. In the first few months of owning a small business, I made a lot of beginner’s mistakes but learned from every single one.
Within the first year of owning the Licensed Avon Beauty Center, I went from Non-President’s Club (less than $10,100 in sales volume per year) to President’s Council (over $112,000 in sales volume per year) and earned a trip for my husband and myself to Punta Cana for the President’s Recognition Program Celebration. We have earned so many incredible trips and rewards from Avon as a result of our hard work. Since signing up in 2008, I’ve earned 11 all-expense paid vacations. Through leadership and sales incentives, we have also earned (2) 46″ TVs, a Blu-Ray DVD player, an iPad Air, 2 sets of Bose speakers, 2 Keurig Coffee Systems, a year’s supply of coffee & tea, a Kindle, and a popcorn maker.
I am so proud to be a part of Avon. Avon has given me the opportunity to build my business at my own pace and spend time at home with my two children while they’re young. As I continue to grow my Avon business and downline, I am extremely grateful for the opportunities and incentives Avon has offered and look forward to many more years of success!
