I’m a Representative of Empowerment
Recruiting Avon Representatives since 2002
2600 Team Members & 125 Sales Leaders
“Sales Leadership pushes you onto the next level, makes you want to do a little bit more for someone else.”
“I moved from Weymouth where I am now, to Hastings with my boyfriend (now my husband) and got a job for 20 hours a week. My husband was working at a supermarket 60 hours a week, and we had two kids. We were making ends meet but after about three months I got really quite depressed, and really very low and it was all because I didn’t have any friends. Moving to a new town was quite difficult for me. I was working in an office on my own. I looked in the paper – these 5 words that completely changed my life: Join Avon, Meet New People.
If it had said ‘Earn Extra Money’, it definitely wouldn’t have spoken to me. Those five words were exactly what I wanted to hear. I’ve got fond memories of Avon so I thought ‘I could do that’, and meeting new people was exactly what I was looking for.
The Pride of Avon
Brian and I are always looking for new Representatives to join our Award winning Avon Team. Do you think you have what it takes? We think you might...
Here's why I am PROUD to be a part of Avon cosmetics
It took 5 months to make enough money to quit my old job. I needed a hundred pounds a week – £60 food bill, £20 electric and £20 gas. So I had to earn a hundred pounds for my leadership business. That was my first goal and I managed to quit my job after 6 months.
My husband is also working with Avon. He joined after 2 years – saw how happy I was, and then he saw the income and that turned his head a bit. He’s never going back to the supermarket.
Hear why Brian is Proud to be a part of Avon Cosmetics too
Without Avon, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I would not be in my home, I wouldn’t be driving the beautiful car I drive. I wouldn’t be going on trips all over the world if it wasn’t for Avon. There’s that feeling of belonging with Avon and I don’t think I’ve ever belonged anywhere else. That’s why I say they are my family.”
Proudest moment – winning the UK team of the year in 2008. She’s written a book and got a few awards for that. Won the DSA award in 2012 – the only Avon person to ever win it. Out of all network marketing companies in the UK.
When I first joined Avon I didn’t have any money. I bought my first suit from Oxfam for £10 and it was a NEXT suit. I’d never been able to drop in Next but I felt like a million dollars. My eldest Ashleigh had never had a brand new school uniform, never. One of the moments that will always stick with me is the day I took him out and bought him everything brand new, from a pair of Clark’s shoes to his coat. So Avon has allowed me to do things that I will never take for granted. I can go into Sainsbury’s and spend £200 and not worry about it. My budget used to be £60 and I’d have to tally it up.
I’ve been on holidays abroad I’d never have dreamed of. We’ve been to Disneyworld in Florida, for three weeks, we went to Lapland to see Santa Claus. We’re doing a loft conversion. It’s quite amazing what it’s enabled us to do. The goals that we thought were out of reach are actually achievable now.
The friends that I’ve met – it sounds cheesy but they are my friends before Avon.
It was always my aim to meet new people and that’s what gets me out of bed every day is that I’m gonna meet someone like myself from 20 years ago when I was on income support with two children and didn’t think I had any sort of future before me. I love being a part of their journey and building relationships.
The relationships I have built have been absolutely amazing.
