Becoming an Avon lady just got more appealing! 20

6 million people in the world do this for money. No, it’s not something sinister…it’s being an Avon representative. The company has employees all over the world selling their products but there is one woman in Brisbane who has eclipsed them all.

Carrol Bradford now earns $1.5 million a year just from selling Avon products. It’s astounding but it’s true – she has a team of 500 staff in Australia, so you might know her. And you can follow in her footsteps with some dedication and product knowledge, which she said were the keys to her success.

It all started when her sister asked her to look after some clients while she went on holiday, and exploded from there. Word of mouth got her started and it snowballed from there, taking her to global meetings in New Zealand, Thailand and Singapore.

Carrol has changed the way everyday Australians look at door-to-door salespeople…they’re not just little old women anymore. Even her husband Greg is now doubling his earnings as a bricklayer, simply by doing deliveries for the online store Carrol created.

It makes you wonder what you could do if you put your mind to it – so good on you, Carrol.

Are you an Avon lady or man? Have you had big sales before? Has this changed how you looked at those representatives? Tell us below.

  1. Good on her. I’m too lazy to do this sort of thing. Some people just have the gift and the inclination.
    And I bet there are people who have a go at her for being a millionaire.

  2. Top marks for bing successful…I’m also an Avon Rep but like bing a small potato..but really like dng what I do..

  3. I worked my butt off for Avon many years ago, but made very little money. My area kept being cut until it wasn’t worth all the fuel I was using to go out in my vehicle. I’m sure the people at the top make money, but nobody else could when I was doing it. Perhaps things have changed now.

  4. This is unfortunate advertising as, as far as I know neither Avon nor Nutrimetics (which I am) consultants are allowed to advertise on public forums. I am also over 60 and happy spreading the pampering of Nutrimetics. There are also many more women like me who are doing multi-million $ business in this line of work.

  5. Im an Avon Rep have been for 15 years NEVER make that much. And neither can she with only 500 customers. We have the TOP sales people in our district And they dont even make that much with 1500. They sell around $350,000 a year. Anyhow its a hobby for me and I take time to sit with my Customers

    • if you read the article it says she has 500 staff, not 500 customers, so I would assume it is a form of pyramid selling where you are getting a commission from those working for you.
