Here is a short testimonial summing up my Avon journey so far.   The reason I wanted to do this is to show you that with Avon it really is possible to build a thriving business and achieve your goals.  At 48 years old, I literally felt that I was on the’scrapheap’ job-wise until I found this Avon opportunity and with hard work, determination and my Avon business I have been able to forge a very successful career and I now lead a huge Avon team.  My confidence has gone from zero back to the real me and I am here to say to you “If I can do it, so can you!”  So here goes:

My name is Bernadette Broadley and I am 54 years old. I have four children and 2 grandchildren. My older three have now all grown up and ‘flown the nest’. It is now just me, my hubby and Kyle (now 13) at home.

My journey with Avon started because I was trying to get hold of the Avon perfume ‘Far Away’ for my daughter, Becky (who was then 17). I had no idea where to get it from, so thought “well, if no one is doing Avon around here, why don’t I give it a go?” When I searched the internet and started looking into it, I noticed the “Avon Sales Leadership” opportunity. It made perfect sense to me to be both an Avon representative and sales leader; I’d receive two separate incomes.

So I applied and became an Avon Lady.

I had very little training or support. My AvonSales Leadership business took a little while initially to get going, but I learnt from my mistakes. I did everything the hard way but sometimes that’s a good thing. It wasn’t ‘handed to me on a plate’ and I had to really fight against all the criticism being levelled at me by cynical (but well meaning) family and friends. But I believed in what I was doing and just kept going.

I am naturally quite a shy person, but once I set my mind to something I have a very steely determination. Perhaps this has come from having first ‘escaped’ from an abusive marriage when my older three were still very young.  With three children under seven, zero self esteem and no income, it was literally ‘sink or swim’. I just had to get on with it and I retrained as a beauty therapist and teacher/trainer, obtaining my PGCE while working two jobs.

After around 2 years, my business really started to pick up pace.  I was awarded UK’s Top Avon Advanced Sales Leader Award. I was awarded £1,750 worth of gift vouchers – amazing! I was so proud and thrilled that my hard work was being recognised.

A year later, I was ranked 5th in the prestigious “top 20 UK AVON Sales Leaders“, rewarded with a trip to Marrakech: All expenses paid!! I also won the 1st prize as Top Executive Sales Leader in the UK. I was rewarded a Louis Vuitton Hand luggage x 2 and £500 worth of shopping vouchers. Very nice thank you!

I have also been awarded 1st place as: Top Executive Avon Recruiter and Highest Avon Executive Increase in Earnings. What a year!! Once again, I am so proud that my faith and hard work paid off.    I have since been awarded with a holiday in Tenerife, a holiday in New York and a holiday in the Algarve, and next year, so proud to have finished 4th for an all expenses paid trip to Seville staying in an exclusive top star hotel!!  WOW!!

One of the Highlights of my Avon career so far is being awarded  Avon Team of the Year.  I feel this is such a massive achievement because it’s not just me that achieved this, it’s an award for the whole of my Avon team and it was an incredibly proud moment being presented with this award in 2015.

I am here to say “If I can do it, so can you”.  When I first started out with Avon I knew nothing about network marketing.  In fact I knew very little about Avon if I’m really honest, and since I’ve learned everything the hard way, I reckon joining my team would be a good move for you, as I am in a position to let you know all the ‘pitfalls’ and what will work for you to help you grow a successful business like mine.  Or hopefully, more successful than mine!!  With Avon the sky is the limit.  Apply Here today and say Hello to the rest of your life with Team Berni Broadley: www.applyreps.co.uk/contact-apply

What is Network Marketing or MLM?


Network Marketing, also known as Multi Level Marketing or MLM is a marketing and sales strategy often used by direct selling companies.  The independent sellers who are registered with these companies gain commission for their sales and for sponsoring/recruiting others to join the business model.

How does MLM work?

Most MLM programmes work on the following principles or similar, although the plan varies depending on the company:

Becky joins a direct selling company – she is ambitious, enthusiastic and wants to build a full time business.  Becky will gain a typical 20-30% commission on what she sells.  There may also be more bonuses available for high achievers.  Becky wants to sponsor/recruit other people in order to grow her business further….. ‘click here to find out more’
