Overview


You make the rules. You enjoy the profits!
When you work for others, they determine your salary, your hours, and often, your career path. When you run your own business with Avon, there's no limit to your financial and personal success! Your potential is driven by your goals and determination. Choose to work as little as 20 hours a week - and you'll probably earn more than from a "regular" part-time job. Or jumpstart your income by becoming a Leadership Representative: share the Avon opportunity with others and profit from their success. In addition to this incremental earning potential, you'll be helping other people transform and take charge of their lives. You could join the elite team of Leadership Representatives, some of whom have earned six figure incomes, won luxury vacation packages and enjoyed company acclaim - with Avon, you can make your dreams a reality.

Avon, the leader in direct selling since 1886
Avon began in 1886 as the California Perfume Company, whose founder, David McConnell, discovered that bringing his perfumes directly to his customers - mostly women - was much more effective than traditional selling methods. His first "Representative" - then called a General Agent - was Mrs. P.F.E. Albee of Winchester, New Hampshire, who traveled by train, horse and foot to sell Avon and recruit other Agents. That was the beginning of Avon's heritage of empowering women by offering financial and professional opportunities in a time where little existed - it would be another 34 years before American women could even vote! Today, Avon continues to provide economic opportunities for women worldwide.

Avon, The Company for Women
Avon is committed to women of all cultures and age groups – not only as consumers and Representatives: as people. We believe in giving back to women and the communities where they live and work, from their economic well-being to their health and safety. Since 1955, when the Avon Foundation was created, more than $500 million worldwide has been donated to address breast cancer, domestic violence and emergency relief for women and families. Avon is the largest single corporate supporter in breast cancer awareness and research. And for 52 weeks starting in April, 2007, the Avon Hello Tomorrow Fund will award $5,000 every week to an individual with the most compelling application that advances women’s causes and ultimately improves society in three vital areas: business development, community service, and awareness/outreach.
