Avon, the leading social selling company in the United States, and Marie Claire teamed up to host a #BeautyBoss panel, featuring Avon Brand Ambassador Lucy Hale and three Avon Representatives. In honor of the magazine's annual November Power issue, which celebrates female bosses, the panel sparked a robust dialogue about breaking boundaries, empowering female entrepreneurship and inspiring the next generation of trailblazers. Perfectly timed with yesterday's event, November is National Entrepreneurship Month.
Moderated by Jessica Pels, MarieClaire.com Digital Director, the discussion centered on power players that are driving the entrepreneurial world and included the following panelists:
- Lucy Hale, Avon Brand Ambassador, and Actress
- Ivanna Diaz Hansen, Avon Representative from La Quinta, California, who joined her mom as an Avon Representative seven years ago at the age of 18 and has since built a team of 280+ Representatives
- Lydia Osolinsky, Avon Representative from San Jose, California, an eight-year Avon Representative and leader of a nationally recognized group of Representative superstars.
- Donna Reid-Mitchell, Avon Representative from Dallas, Texas, who has been an Avon Representative for 14 years and used her Avon expertise to provide makeovers to cancer survivors in the United States and Jamaica
"I am thrilled to have this opportunity to be surrounded by passionate, ambitious Avon Beauty Bosses who are defining success on their terms," shared Lucy Hale. "I hope our dialogue will inspire other women to take action in their own lives to blaze their trail and reach higher than they think is possible."
"Our Avon Representatives embrace a passion for success and are a community of women who celebrate other women pushing limits and achieving their goals – which is much like the community Marie Claire creates with their powerful editorial voice," says Betty Palm, President of Social Selling for Avon. "So we are thrilled to team up with Marie Claire to create a dialogue about breaking boundaries, empowering female entrepreneurship and inspiring the next generation of trailblazers."
