Do You Know Avon’s History and Founder David H. McConnell’s Story?


For over 130 years, Avon has stood for women. Join the original women’s empowerment network.

Avon’s Founder, David H. McConnell, offered women a rarity in 19th century America: a chance at financial independence. In 1886, it was practically unheard of for a woman to run her own business. Just 20% of all women in the United States were working outside the home, let alone climbing the ranks of any corporate ladder.

For many women, McConnell would radically alter that scenario. The man behind the company for women was the son of Irish immigrants and grew up on a farm. Yet, it was this young man from rural New York, visionary leader decades ahead of his time, who would become a pioneer in empowering women. McConnell, a bookseller-turned-perfume entrepreneur, would offer women the opportunity to create and manage their own businesses through what later became known as direct selling.

Origins of an Idea

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.

McConnell’s First Sales Representative

McConnell’s first recruit for Avon, then known as the California Perfume Company, was Mrs. P.F.E. Albee of New Hampshire. Not only did he provide Mrs. Albee and other early Representatives with an earnings opportunity when employment options for women were extremely limited, but he also fostered a supportive environment with a familial feel. (The company newsletter was even called the “Family Album.”) In one of his regular letters to Representatives, he wrote: “All success lies in one’s self and not in external conditions. … Misfortunes are only a discipline, and there are possibilities which often are awakened by them which suggest to us the power and strength we possess, that perhaps otherwise would never have been recognized.” No wonder the Representative ranks rose to 5,000 in just 13 short years.

Power of the Product and the People

To McConnell, the product and the people were everything to the company, and he dedicated himself to ensuring that both would be successful. In addition to inspiring the Representatives, McConnell also wanted to encourage the company’s employees with the same positive spirit.  A century before it would become de rigueur for companies to institute employee incentive programs and hire hordes of consultants to make sure employees were happy, motivated and productive, McConnell knew just how to rally the troops. The motivational leader created a set of guiding principles that are still the heart and spirit of Avon today. They include:

  • Providing an earnings opportunity so individuals can achieve financial independence and enjoy all that comes with such an accomplishment.
  • Recognizing everyone’s unique contributions.
  • Giving back to the communities Avon serves.
  • Offering the highest-quality products with a guarantee of satisfaction.
  • Maintaining and cherishing the “friendly spirit of Avon.”

McConnell believed strongly in the potential of people, and that in that potential lay the power of possibility and, eventually, success:

“If we stop and look over the past and then into the future, we can see that the possibilities are growing greater and greater every day; that we have scarcely begun to reach the proper results from the field we have before us.” ~ David H. McConnell, Avon’s Founder

I hope you enjoyed learning about the start of Avon’s long history of empowering women around the globe. The idea of women having a passion for Avon products and love of networking with other women should be your inspiration to build a business for yourself today.

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.
