You may or may not know this about me, but prior to being a blogger I was an online independent store owner. I had a product that I single handedly created, sold, provided customer service for, and mailed out. I was my own business woman from the ground up, which incidentally, was exactly how I got started blogging. Because of that, I am always on the look out in ways I can highlight other women that are out there making it happen for themselves and their families!

So this week when I had a chance to sit down with Angelique Agee and talk to her about how she managed to make a career, 19 years so far, out of Avon and what it has meant to her, I was very excited. It’s a near and dear cause to my heart sharing with women about the growth of their very own businesses (and blogs!) and help them achieve the dreams they have.

First a little about Angelique:

Angelique Agee
Successful Business Woman Finds Time For Others
Started Avon: Feb. 1994

Angelique thought she wasn’t a “business minded” person but her grandmother knew better. After failed jobs in retail and Corporate America, Angelique finally took her grandmother’s advice and tried her luck as an Avon Representative in 1994. Years later, Angelique is a now a self proclaimed business woman. After her grandmother’s passing, she felt a strong desire to affiliate herself with retirement homes in her community and started selling Avon to the residents, “I feel like residents in retirement homes are often times forgotten about in our society, so it’s important that I help them out.” In addition to providing beauty consultation, she helps the residents choose gifts for loved ones, as most of them are unable to shop on their own. Angelique is motivated by the ability to share her success story with other Avon Reps. She hopes they can learn that paying the bills and providing for your family is hard work but it can also be fun and rewarding at the same time.

Here is what Angelique had to say about her career with Avon:

Personally and/or professionally, what attracted you to Avon and why do you enjoy your career with Avon?

Initially, I was not interested in Avon, but when I found out how easy it was, I pursued it further. Then, when I started recruiting, I found a passion for helping others to work towards their dreams and goals!

What are the best benefits of working with Avon?

Discount, unlimited earnings potential. Freedom, flexibility, work from home, recognition, self empowerment,great products, low startup costs (only $10),  and no overhead!

What are the biggest challenges with your Avon business?

Getting representatives to see the BIG PICTURE.  If they input “x amount of time”, they will get “x amount of business” and make “x amount of money”.

What have you been able to do with your earnings from your Avon business?

I am about to payoff my car in December 2012! I have been able to make a living 3 times my income from corporate America since 2005.


I also asked her about a product that you can get right now from Avon, the Avon ANEW Clinical Pro Line Eraser Treatment.


ANEW CLINICAL Pro Line Eraser Treatment

The anti-aging breakthrough of the decade! Unlike AHA, unlike retinol, unlike injectable collagen, patented A-F33 (Amino-Fill 33) works to deactivate collagen blocking and help effectively boost collagen production in just 3 days*.

Angelique and I took a moment to talk about some of the new Avon products, including the serum above:

As of now I haven’t had an opportunity to fully test out this product to give you great feedback, but look for that update in an upcoming post!

  1. I have just started my business with Avon and would encourage any who is “thinking about” taking advantage of this great opportunity, should go for it!!!! Angelique and everyone else affiliated with her or Avon have bent over backwards to be helpful and supportive. I’ve already made money after only being in business a little over 16 days. PLEASE get off of the fence. Build the life you were meant to have.

  2. Avon & Angelique. What a great article. I met Angelique two years ago and was inspired by her achievements. My favorite Avon products is the Anew skin care line. Check out my web site http://www.youravon.com/ritaferguson to view all our products. Anyone needing extra income for the holidays and beyond; contact me 601 632 1334.

    Congrats to Angelique. I sell Avon but I must admit I do not really go after it. I have a few clients and they buy the upscale products and some of the old stand bys. I enjoy my discounts and all the facial products. Great blog.

  5. Absolutely empowering! I just started my AVON business in July 2012, and have achieved amazing success. I am even on my way to building a team already. Easy and profitable, usually these two words aren’t in the same sentence complimenting each other. Thanks for sharing this story!
