Stuart Mitchell Avon, the Avon Foundation for Women, and The National Domestic Violence Hotline have joined with financial expert Suze Orman to produce a video series featuring empowering stories of women overcoming domestic violence — including one of the least discussed forms of abuse, financial abuse. The seven part series is designed to raise awareness of the signs of financial abuse for both victims, as well as friends and family members of victims, and provide tips to overcome it.
The full-time project engineer received a big payout from her Avon business. While the money she has made over the last seven years she has sold Avon is also nice, Sorinmade said running her own Avon business with 30 other women on her team has helped her gain more self-confidence while helping her save money and help others.
She originally started selling Avon as a way to get discounts on products to include in baskets for the gift basket business she ran. Those early sales days turned into a niche doing something she really liked. It makes me feel empowered just to be able to pull from reserves to help my family.
But Sorinmade had no idea why Avon representatives wanted to meet with her when she received a phone call in the beginning of October. Sorinmade said the meeting with Orman was helpful because Orman told her and husband, Tayo, the truth about their financial situation. They were carrying too much debt and based on their income doing some things wrong.
Sorinmade plans to continue her Avon business much the same way she has since she first started, sending out emails and handing out flyers to drum up business. While her biggest selling products tend to be fragrances, Sorinmade said the Avon product line is extensive covering items from skin care, bath and body products, and makeup to toys and clothing.
Sorinmade has sold to more than customers in her seven years and said while customer ordering is down during this economy, her earnings are up from more women joining her sales team.
