Origins of an Idea
Do you know the history of Avon? Avon Founder David H. McConnell offered women a rarity in 19th century America: a chance at financial independence. On the heels of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, women were mainly confined to jobs in agriculture, domestic service and manufacturing, not exactly glamorous lines of work. In 1886, it was this young man from rural New York, a visionary leader decades ahead of his time, who would become a pioneer in empowering women. In his travels as a book salesman, McConnell made two important discoveries. First, he quickly noticed that his female customers were far more interested in the free perfume samples he offered than they were in his books. He made these fragrances himself to serve as “door openers” when he traveled from home to home. Second, McConnell saw women struggling to make ends meet and recognized in many of them natural salespeople who would easily relate to other women and passionately market the products his new company would first sell — perfumes.
