An estimated 15.9 million people are involved in direct selling in the U.S., and more than 90 million worldwide. About 80 percent of US direct sellers are women. The vast majority are independent business people – they are micro–entrepreneurs whose purpose is to sell the product and/or services of the company they voluntarily choose to represent – not employees of the company. Approximately 90 percent of all direct sellers operate their businesses part–time. Many work with more than one at a time.
Belinda Ellsworth is a veteran motivational speaker, sales trainer, and expert for the direct sales industry. With more than 30 years of experience, she has trained thousands of independent sales representatives, managers, and executives and has worked with more than 100 direct sales companies.
