Have You Considered Whether Direct Selling Right For You?

By Delores Howard

So you’ve come to the realization that you desire much more from life than a paycheck and are no longer satisfied with a J.O.B.-which defines you as being (Just Over Broke). It’s a sad existence to live life just for the weekend, meaning you’re only living on the weekend because from Monday through Friday (sometimes Saturday too) you belong to your boss. With all of the controversy and negative opinions about ‘Multi-Level Marketing’ and ‘Networking Marketing’, perhaps there’s something positive to be said about ‘Direct Selling’ as a career!
According to a credible source ‘Direct Selling’ is defined as: “the sale of a product or service, from one individual to another, away from a fixed retail location. These products or services are marketed through independent sales representatives or independent contractors. Direct sellers are not employees of any particular company; they market and sell the products or services of a company in return for a commission on those sales.”
Facts
•    Four in five (82%) of direct sellers have been with their current direct selling company for one year or more, and 47% for five years or more.
•    89% of direct sellers rate their personal experience in direct selling as excellent, very good, or good.
•    84% of direct sellers say that direct selling meets or exceeds their expectations as a good way to supplement their income, make a little extra money for themselves, or completely replace their current income.
•    91% of direct sellers say that direct selling meets or exceeds their expectations as a business where the harder they work the more money they can make.
•    Virtually every consumer product or service can be purchased through direct selling.
•    In the U.S. market alone, direct sales represent a $30 billion a year industry, providing nearly 16 million independent sales people with the opportunity to achieve personal and financial goals.
•    Direct sellers are independent contractors by virtue of section 3508 of the U.S. tax code.
•    Legitimate direct selling companies seek to make money with you as you build your business (and theirs) by selling real products and or services.
You may be wondering how to start; well that would be by choosing a company whose products/services appeal to you. It is suggested that in order to be successful it is important to choose products or services that you use and enjoy yourself, and that you really believe in. Set realistic goals for yourself because your success depends on your hard work.
Direct selling offers one of the finest entrepreneurial skill building opportunities in the world and many people discover that what they learn while creating such a home-based business of their own impacts their lives in ways they never dreamed of.
It is essential to understand that despite your goals, whether as supplemental income or as a full-time career, direct selling is not easy income and you will not get rich quick. Success is only achieved by applying commitment and hard work with resourcefulness and determination.
Surveys show that independent contractors choose direct selling because they take pleasure in being their own boss which allows them to set uniquely flexible hours that accommodate other priorities such as family.
The beauty in direct selling is that it’s open to anyone and everyone, regardless of experience, social status, or education level, and it’s the only industry where women earn dollar for dollar what men earn.
