Female entrepreneurs ROCK.  And Avon is in the business of empowering women to embrace entrepreneurship giving them the financial freedom they crave.  This is my third series with Avon and I am continually amazed at the life-changing stories shared by women who utilized the opportunity to quit their job, pay off debt and/or achieve financial freedom.   I am in the business of empowering women to find their center – financially – so I feel personally invested in this campaign.

I understand the need to create financial freedom, especially as a woman in today’s economy.  We are mothers, sisters and wives tasked with making it happen for ourselves, financially.  I founded Girls Just Wanna Have Funds over a decade ago (wow!) and today I run two businesses.  Girls Just Wanna Have Funds and a private practice.  So I understand the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and the courage it takes to step out and march to the beat of your own drum.

Are you thinking about how you’ll be able to stay at home with the new baby? Do you hate the monotony of the 9-5 rat race?  Are you yearning for control of your time and financial destiny?

AVON wants to help you do all that and more.

The “You Make It Beautiful” campaign is about supporting women in the beauty of entrepreneurship.  For AVON representatives, this is an opportunity to write their own financial ticket by building lasting relationships with customers.   For women thinking about getting on board with AVON, this is a message empowering them to find the beauty and confidence that was always there.  The make-up and products are just tools to harness the beauty that already lies within.
