...Mrs Testar, 42, now has 1,750 reps working under her.

Much like Amway and Herbalife, the key to success is getting associates working underneath you, not the direct sales that you yourself make. An accurate headline would read; 1750 Avon representatives sell £4m worth of cosmetics.

That said, I still congratulate her. She worked within the system and made it work for her instead of mooching off of the taxpayer.

If Avon is structured like Pampered Chef, which I am VERY familiar with, she sold that four million herself. Yes, she has people under her, but more like a management system in which she provides training, recognition, meetings, and other types of support. Additionally, she probably has to travel quite a bit to conventions, regional meetings, etc. It’s more like being an upper level manager in a corporation, but without the walls. Her 1,750 consultants have sold far, far more than 4 million pounds. Maintaining a business at that level is definitely a 40 hour per week job. Been there, done that — but never 4 million dollars worth!
