Those of you who are a part of the Direct Selling Industry know that we all deal with a common problem – negative perceptions about our industry.

I ran across an article in USA Today that I thought you would find interesting.  It was published this week (5/15/11) and titled “Direct Sales Offers Recession Proof Jobs”.  The article discusses the reasons why the industry does well in recessionary times.  It stresses a very important message – while our products and services are important, the opportunity “is really the #1 product we have to sell” (as quoted by Geralyn Breig, Avon’s North American President).  This is a very powerful statement coming from a company like Avon who has built their entire business model around ‘products first’.

I encourage each of you to take a few minutes of your time to read this article.  It contains valuable information.  This could also be a useful tool to help prospects better understand the value of this industry, and for current distributors to understand how fortunate they are to be part of such a proven and growing business model.
