About Me and My Avon Story

profile-picture-squareI’ve always loved jewelry, cosmetics, and fashion. I have childhood memories of receiving gifts from my godmother of Avon products. I remember a classmates mother selling Avon to mine. I began collecting the older, unique perfume bottles in the shape of an owl, a flower, the Eiffel Tower.

I continued to buy Avon into adulthood through a friends’ wife and a local woman. When they stopped selling, I decided to sign up for the discount and maybe even make a little extra money. Fast forward nine years and I have built a nice side-gig that yields additional income. I’m also leading a team of like-minded people that adds to this income. My success came with truly loving Avon products and the company. I enjoy helping others accomplish things they never thought possible.
