Is it really possible to make extra money selling avon?

I work full time at a 9-5 job and I'd like to make a little extra "play" money, but don't want or need to get a 2nd job. Would it be a good idea to start selling avon to the women in my office building? I'm sure I could find customers, but I want to make sure I'd be making a little cash.

possible, yes. likely, no. AVON Is MLM MLM is legally acceptable AS LONG AS ONE DOES NOT SEEK DOWNLINE MEMBERS. DO NOT sell to your friends and neighbors; sell to the consuming public. fact; 95% of MLM members do not earn a profit..........they earn about $5.00 per hour.
