5 Essential Business Lessons from Avon’s Very First Representative

Before women had the right to vote or had a true means of financial independence, there was one woman from within Avon’s history that defied conventions – the first-ever Representative, Mrs. Persis Foster Eames Albee. This New Hampshire lady, born in 1836, was known for her style and savvy, which attracted the attention of Avon founder David H. McConnell. He asked her to be the company’s first traveling salesperson, and the rest is history.

Whether you’re working to rise through the corporate ranks or are an entrepreneur about to launch the next great idea, we can all learn a thing (or five) from this one-woman powerhouse.

1. Take a Leap of Faith. In 1886, Mrs. P.F.E. Albee took a risk and accepted an offer from David McConnell who was transitioning out of the book business to work as a door-to-door salesperson. He then started the California Perfume Company (CPC). You can call it the original startup. “Mrs. Albee was one of the most successful General Agents I had in the book work, and it was in her hands I placed the first sample case, or outfit, in the perfume business,” McConnell wrote in 1903. Known for her genteel nature and voracious ambition, Albee traveled by horse-drawn wagon, train, or by foot, offering perfumes to those she encountered  talk about some serious hustle.

2. Have a Game Plan. All her hard work and determination paid off. Mrs. Albee was soon hired to take over the daily operations of perfume sales. Of course, she went full throttle with her mission. Capitalizing on the growing popularity of perfume, she expanded her travels beyond her tiny New Hampshire town to the entire Northeast. Albee developed a business plan in which she recruited women to serve as “depot agents,” selling products in their own neighborhoods. “It is, therefore, only befitting that we give her the honorary title of Mother of the California Perfume Company,” McConnell wrote. The strategy was so successful it became one of the key identifiers of the company that’s still used today.

3. Love What You Do. Imagine Mrs. Albee confident and in control  she wraps up one successful sale and then off she goes up the street to greet the next customer to close the next sale. Albee leaned into her new gig and the hard work paid off in all sectors of her life. In a letter to McConnell, she wrote, “I know of no line of work so lucrative, pleasant and satisfactory as this.”

4. Always Dress for Success. Much like she lived her life, Albee dressed with no fear, making a fashion style statement-after-statement. She dressed in ensembles such as lavender taffeta gowns with tiered layers, exaggerated sleeves, and look-at-me trains. Talk about power dressing! A seasoned and stylish traveler, she saw no reason to dress down while on the road. In 2015 speak, her outfits went viral when the famously elegant attire later inspired a Mrs. P.F.E. Albee special edition Barbie.

5. Spread the Love. Albee’s enthusiasm was entirely contagious. As Avon’s first traveling saleswoman, she recruited other determined ladies to work for the company. In fact, Albee succeeded in empowering women by incorporating them into the mainstream business world 34 years before women even had the right to vote! One of the company’s first employees, Ann Meany, gave Albee a solid endorsement, writing in her memoirs: “She was about 60 in 1985 and was still making trips, working almost entirely under Mr. McConnell’s direction. She was the daughter of a minister and so sweet and lovely she deserves a whole volume just to herself. Today, Avon Representatives have really placed her on a pedestal – literally. Since 1969, the company has awarded highly coveted 10-inch tall porcelain figurines of Albee to the company’s top sales representatives. And yes, it’s still a very big deal to receive one.

The bottom line is that Albee’s story teaches us that no matter how big or small your dreams may be, go after them. In this age of self-starters, who knows where a little Albee-inspired ambition could take you. The first Representative and affectionately dubbed her the “Mother of the California Perfume Company.” Mrs. P.F.E. Albee of New Hampshire was 50 when she began selling perfumes for McConnell. She traveled by horse and buggy and by train, offering perfumes such as the inaugural single-note scents – Violet, White Rose, Heliotrope, Lily-of-the-Valley, and Hyacinth – door-to-door throughout the Northeast section of the United States. In a letter to McConnell, Mrs. Albee wrote, “I know of no line of work so lucrative, pleasant and satisfactory as this.” The legendary Mrs. Albee is still considered a role model for Avon Representatives today and is credited with creating the company’s system for distributing products.

My Avon Story

profile-picture-squareI’ve always loved jewelry, cosmetics, and fashion. I have childhood memories of receiving gifts of Avon products from my godmother. I remember a classmates mother selling Avon to my mother. 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 eight 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.

Thank you for considering shopping Avon with me. My vision is to provide delightful and pleasing anti-aging skincare, fragrance, color cosmetics & fashion products. I believe beauty doesn’t have to be expensive! You can be your most incredible self without using a lot of your time or money. Avon is a well-known brand name and has quality products at affordable prices.

My vision is to offer an attractive and appealing direct & social selling opportunity to others interested in starting their own business. I know that with Avon, it is possible to balance running a small business while supporting a family and enjoying your life. You can make extra money and work from home. You set your own hours, days off and vacation time. And best of all, this job does not fire you. I believe that no matter what obstacle pops up in life, anyone can succeed as long as they are willing to work hard and never give up. Does this sound like something you want to do?

My Avon Story

profile-picture-squareprofile-picture-square

I have been buying Avon products for over 27 years but had Avon ladies come and go from my life. I’ve been a successful small business owner for 24+ years but was looking for a new opportunity to earn extra money. I chose Avon because it’s a company with a well-known brand name. I love their products and they offered quality at affordable prices. I support their philanthropy and I’m in awe of their $1 billion dollar global contributions to support eradicating breast cancer and ending violence against women. In 2010 I became an Avon Representative, started in Leadership for recruiting, and became an educated Beauty Advisor. With my customers help, I joined the elite group of top-achieving Representatives for the third year. The President’s Recognition Program honors individuals who have reached published sales performance levels.

For more than 130 years, the Avon brand has stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and, above all, for women. In North America (U.S., Canada & Puerto Rico), Avon operates as a privately-held company. New Avon LLC manufactures and sells color cosmetics, skincare, fragrance, and fashion and home, featuring such well-recognized brand names as Avon Color, ANEW, Avon Care, Skin-So-Soft, and Advance Techniques. New Avon LLC and Avon Products, Inc have ties to each other and operate under the Avon brand. The Avon you know and love will be here in the United States for generations to come and available for purchase through My Avon Website.

New Avon LLC is a proud member of Direct Selling Associations and abides by their Code of Ethics. In addition, there are three major aspects of Avon’s business model that safeguard our Representatives and Consumers. We maintain adherence to these principles in all of our markets. They are:

The Avon business model does not rely on nor does it encourage
sales of inventory, training or business support materials between Representatives.
The core of our business model is Representatives selling our products to an end consumer.

Avon has reasonable return policies.
Representatives are not left holding excess inventory.

Avon limits earnings to five generations.
We do not promise commissions on infinite sales. Rather, we primarily promote and incentivize Representatives based on their sales to Customers.

When consumers have questions about direct selling, we say to them: At its best, direct selling is “I tried the product. I liked the product. I recommend it to a friend.” If you are considering entering direct sales (or ‘social selling’) here are three tips to remember:

Like the product! Make sure it’s a product you use and enjoy yourself. You will be selling to your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

Understand the product. All good direct selling/social selling companies will provide training and mentoring support. But you should not need to invest heavily in start-up training and marketing materials.

Know who you are buying from and who is paying you. When ordering product for your customers, make sure you will be purchasing from the Company, not the individual who recruited you into selling. And that your earnings will be paid by the Company.

I want to show other women how to run a successful beauty business and inspire them to earn the extra money they desire. I look for people with entrepreneurial drive and are self-motivated. If you are interested in joining my beauty and fashion team, either full- or part-time. Avon offers an earning potential competitive to other direct selling companies. I can answer your questions and concerns as well as give you everything you need to start your own work from home business!

Have you heard pitches about earning bigs dollars a month from some? I’m here to tell you, first, it’s hard to distinguish legitimate work-at-home programs. And second, any “get rich quick” pitch should be viewed with caution. So Go Ahead & Dream Big. Contact Me and I will show how to become an Avon Representative today!

You can begin selling within minutes by completing the form at nrago.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity/start — OR — start.youravon.com. Enter Reference Code “nrago” so you can be on my team and I can coach you as you begin your new Avon business.
