The History of Avon
Avon Founder David H McConnell offered women a rarity in the 19th century America: A chance at financial independence. In 1886, it was practically unheard of for a woman to run her own business. Only about 5 million women in the USA were working outside the family home, let alone able to climb the ranks of any corporate ladder. That number accounted for just 20% of all women. Most women worked in factories & that was not a glamorous job, on top of that woman's wages across the board were a fraction of men's wages at the time. For many women, McConnell would radically alter that scenario. The man behind the company of women was the son of an Irish immigrant & grew up on a farm. Yet, it was this young man who was a visionary leader decades ahead of his time, who became a pioneer in empowering women. McConnell, a bookseller by trade, would offer women the opportunity to create & manage their own buisnesses through what later became known as "Direct Selling" or "Door to Door" selling. McConnell made two important discoveries in his travels as a book salesman. First, he quickly noticed that his female customers were far more interested in the free perfume samples he offered than they were in the books he was trying to sell. second, he saw how women were struggling to make ends meet & recognized that many of them would make natural salespeople, who would relate easily to other women & would passionately sell the products his new company would first sell - perfumes! McConnell opened up his first company called "The California Perfume Company" Years later - AVON was born!
