Startup Stories: Finding My Voice


Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service?
I earn income training and encouraging my team of Avon representatives and receive commission on all the great Avon products that people buy from me. The products are skin care and treatment, bath and body products, jewelry, gift items and a great fashion line of c;lothng and accessories.

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
I retired from the corporate arena early to marry my Sweetheart and move to California. I spent about a year, going to the movies, walking on the beach and shopping. This was great fun for awhile but something was missing. I felt isolated and out of the loop and didn’t have enough retirement income to shop like I wanted to. My family and friends didn’t live in California and my husband was ill. I needed something in my life

While looking for some not so expensive cosmetics I met a wonderful woman Dolly who introduced me to the Avon opportunity. Under her encouragement and training, I started my business. I found my niche and how to meet , talk with and help others find their own voice (niche) with this great company. So that’s what I do now I help and encourage people to believe in themselves and to go for their dreams. I help them set goals and give them pointers on how to get there. There isn’t anything much better in this world than to be able to help others.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
It seems that everyone is looking for a way to express themselves in a unique way and to earn a good income in the process.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
I have a desire to take my business to a new higher level and I seemed to be stuck in the old habits and methods. I hired a business coach to help me see things from a different perspective and I’m working to expand my business on the internet.
