Avon Products
1886–1937
McConnell was a pioneer in door-to-door selling. With Avon, he created a significant earning opportunity for housewives and other women before they won the right to vote. His products were sold by women in the communities where they and their customers lived, contrary to the model of the traveling salesperson. Under his leadership, Avon enjoyed phenomenal growth and success.
