As some of you know, I have a long rooted history with Avon. Well, maybe not that long rooted when you consider the company has been around since 1886 when founded by David H. McConnell. While I was never an Avon representative, I did work for the brand in marketing for over a year in their Mark. division. And as you can imagine it was incredibly inspiring. Their commitment to women and all that they have done to create financial independence at a time when women didn’t have many options was truly impressive. And it’s that commitment that reigns them the title of largest global network on earth (on earth people!). Beauty has helped Avon empower more than 6 million women globally, which is how large their network of representatives is!
