Entrepreneurship is at the core of direct selling’s DNA. It is so deeply rooted in our business model that it has become synonymous with direct selling itself. Many of our member companies started as individual of family businesses, sometimes in such modest premises as the back of a garage. Most direct sellers chose a direct selling activity for the freedom and flexibility it gives them – from planning their work to building a career the way they want, at the pace they want.
At a time where inequalities in access to employment are increasingly documented – gender, background and education remain strong determinants of a person’s career – we are proud to say that anyone can become a direct seller. Direct selling overcomes the barriers to success and provides a fair, flexible way for many to set up their own business – and start-up costs are virtually inexistent as companies carry the inventory risk.
Our direct sellers work on an independent basis, running their own micro-business with guidance, training and support offered by our member companies.
