Lynda Mills, director of The Direct Selling Association, says
The start of a new year is always a great opportunity to think about the future.
We can consider what we want for the year ahead - whether it’s to spend more time with the children, feel a little more secure in our finances or get healthier.
January is a time for change and when we speak to direct sellers about why they started their own businesses each often has one similarity - they wanted to change something in their lives.
MAKE MONEY FROM HOME
Whether they wanted to be home for their children, even out their work-life balance, find a job they love or just make a bit of extra money at the weekends, they started their own businesses to achieve a goal.
Some even tied their business in with a new healthy lifestyle by becoming a distributor for one of the growing number of wellness and nutrition focused Direct Selling Association member companies.
As you think about your new year’s resolutions for 2014, contemplate setting clear, achievable goals you can see a path towards.
If that resolution is to give up chocolate, the best of luck to you.
But if your goals are similar to those of some of our direct sellers, perhaps it’s time to consider starting up your own direct selling business.
LOW START-UP COSTS
With an average start-up cost of just £100, it is a versatile way of working that can be done either part-time, full-time or just at evenings and weekends.
There is also a multitude of product ranges to choose from, giving prospective sellers lots of options when it comes to choosing something they feel passionate about selling and plenty of money making ideas.
