Women like myself, CEOs, can pave the way for more women to get to the top.
I can only have dinner with my girlfriends once a month instead of once a week.
You know, you go home and you try on a new mascara, and I guess a male CEO can't do that.
If you feel like it's difficult to change, you will probably have a harder time succeeding.
A representative is free delivery; she's a personal beauty consultant. Some people want that high touch.
I think it's critical that you feel you're working for a person who is committed to advancing your career.
My parents kept the best aspects of the Asian culture, and they Americanized the family. My mother was a great example for me. She was a working mother with a good career.
Avon is a unique place to work; we've got family-friendly policies. We have more senior women in high-level management than any other company; 46 percent of our officers are women.
I became CEO at the beginning of the hit on old economy stocks. When something like that occurs in your first six months as a CEO of a more traditional branded firm, it makes for a fast learning curve.
Avon invented the concept of direct marketing and direct selling beauty. And that's still very valid to us. We'll have a firm that will be around for another 114 years as strongly as it was the first 114.
