Elizabeth has been on both sides of the coin – from being on welfare twice to getting a corporate job and an MBA. 15 years ago she found herself caught up in a mass lay off from her sweet job, yet again left wondering how to care for her family. She turned to being an entrepreneur. From knocking on doors in her hometown, to owning a store, Elizabeth has sold nearly $7,000,000 worth of Avon – more than anyone in the country has ever sold.
