Melissa is a stay at home mom who loves to share the Avon opportunity with others, while working her own business in between tickle fights.

Work from where you want, when you want.

One of the beautiful things about Avon is the ability to set your own hours and work from wherever you want. Work from a different location every day if you want. You have the freedom to work as much, or as little as you would like. Lounge on the couch in your favorite pajamas, with a cup of coffee, while working your own business like a boss. Avon allows you to work on building your business whenever you want. This means no set hours that interfere with family time, or a get-together with friends. Being an Independent Avon Sales Representative, or what I like to call a "beauty boss", allows me to stay home with my 2 year old daughter while being able to help my husband with our finances. It's an incredible feeling.

You get a free website to run your business.

Avon gives you your very own professional website where your customers can go to shop 24/7 for their favorite Avon products. One of the best things is that your commission from online sales is the same as face to face sales. Your website allows your customers to shop when it's most convenient for them, and have their orders delivered directly to their door. Avon takes care of shipping, so you don't have to!

You get access to free training on tons of topics.

One of my all time favorite tools that Avon provides is completely free online training through their Avon University (Avon U for short). There are comprehensive modules that help you run your business, such as how to use social media to boost your business, the correct wording when talking with people, how and why to build your team, and how you can get promoted. There are also webinars and free training videos that help you launch your business and get off to a great start.

You don't have an order minimum.

You sometimes hear about having to have at least $50 in sales before even getting some sort of commission back....not with Avon! Every dollar you work hard in getting in sales, you receive a commission on. Whether that commission be 20%, 30%, or even 40% is completely up to you. Your hard work is acknowledged no matter the sales.

Earn up to 40% commission on sales.

One thing I love about this business is that you get as much out of it as you put in. After joining Avon, you are guaranteed 40% commission for your first campaign, after the first campaign (first ordering period), you have the opportunity to continue earning 40% by hitting certain achievable goals.

You get access to discounts, healthcare and scholarships.

Being an Independent Avon Sales Representative allows you to receive some nice discounts at affiliated stores like Staples, Dell, and T-mobile. You also have the option of healthcare, and applying for scholarships for not only you, but also your children. My daughter is only 2 right now or else I would be jumping at the chance of scholarships.

You don't have to carry on-hand stock and are not required to host home parties.

Can you keep products on-hand to show potential customers, or to make sales? Of course you can! But it's not required to do so. You also are never required to throw any type of home (or online) parties unless you actually want to. So, if you want to throw a launch party, or a casual Avon get together, go for it! That's the beauty of being your own boss.

You have the chance to earn amazing vacations and incentives.

So you've become your own boss, set your own schedule, have access to tons of free sales and marketing tools, and now there's even the opportunity to earn rewards, and amazing vacations. Sounds like a deal to me. 2019's destinations so far are Maui, and Los Cabos, Mexico! You get to see how your hard work is appreciated by being able to earn some pretty amazing perks.

Start for as little as $25

What is your "Why"?

I am considering, or have already joined, Avon so I can
