Driving around in an Audi convertible and sporting a golden tan from her latest luxury cruise you could be forgiven for thinking Julie Bradley had won the lottery.
But in fact the determined businesswoman’s life of luxury is all funded through her work as an Avon lady.
Julie started as a door-to-door saleswoman from the beauty company 10--years-ago and has now worked her way up to being a senior executive Avon sales leader for the Doncaster area.
The mum-of-two from Warmsworth has now grown a business of 809 representatives that turns over £1.8 million a year, with Julie’s individual earnings totalling between £50,000 and £60,000.
Julie, 52, who left her job in local newspaper sales to join Avon, said: “I have always dreamed of having financial freedom and thanks to my Avon business I have achieved this.
“I am constantly ticking off things from my dream list and making new ones.”
Among the perks Julie’s Avon business has afforded her are her pride an joy Audi TT convertible, countless luxury holidays and cruises and being able to provide financial stability for her two daughter’s Lianne, 27 and Zoe, 21.·
Julie loves to be her own boss and would encourage other mother’s to consider starting their own independent businesses because of the flexible working hours.
She said: “Being able to work when I want to is amazing because it enables me to be there for my children and fit in all the nice things in life.
“I can work on a Sunday when there is no traffic on the road, and relax at home on a Monday when everyone is frantically rushing into work.”
Aside from giving Julie the lifestyle she had always dreamed of Avon has also been a great confidence boost.
She said: “Put me in any situation and I can handle it.
“Meeting strangers doesn’t come naturally to most people, but I feel really comfortable with the people I meet and love that I can be an inspiration to my local community.”
Julie is now encouraging others to follow in her footsteps and share the wealth especially if they are struggling for cash after the expense of Christmas.
“You start earning money straight away so it’s great whether you want to do it for some extra spending money on the side or a full time career,” she adds
