New Avon Announces that Howie Appel has passed the 15 year mark with Avon
New Avon, LLC recently recognized the 15 year anniversary of Howie Appel as a Local Independent Avon Representative. Howie's wife, Marla, attended an expo in 2004 where she signed up for Avon and as a dedicated and loyal husband, Howie joined her in the enterprise. Over the years, Howie and Marla reached both Presidents Club and Honor Society while selling with this 120-year old company.
During March, 2004, Marla was diagnosed with kidney cancer. They both decided to make the battle against cancer their motivation to build a business. Howie opted to become the main representative when they found Marla's condition to be worsening. Marla, nevertheless, fought her disease and Howie, her caregiver, was determined to build the business and be Marla's backbone.
In June, 2016, at a local President's Club Luncheon, Howie and Marla were awarded Avon's highest award....the Spirit of Avon. In July, Marla passed from cancer. Howie decided to build and build fast in Marla's memory.
She is the spirit, motivation, and legacy behind Avon-A Beautiful You.
