Direct sales can totally get a bad rep, but they’re actually an INCREDIBLE (full -time or side) stream of income if you choose to put in the work AND the right company. But how do you know who is the Best Direct Sales Company to work for? Honestly, that really depends on what you’re looking to sell and be a part of. Let me explain.
There are SO many direct sales companies out there, and in my honest opinion, it’s really important to not only choose a company that has a good business & compensation plan, but also one that you could see yourself getting behind that product and being able to promote! There’s nothing worse that being able to feel that someone is trying to do this business simply to make a buck! I’m all about making money, but it’s super important for me to believe in what I’m doing.
Take a look around at what you feel this world is needing more of. There are many companies selling products and services ranging from tuppaware, Essential Oils, makeup, wine, workouts, shakes, CBD products, and much more. I would take a step back and assess the need for the product that your potential company is selling. Asking questions like this below can be incredibly helpful in finding the best direct sales company to work for:
•”Do people currently need my product?”
•”Could I see myself getting behind a product like this and sharing it for the long haul?”
•”Are there people currently succeeding with this company?”
•”What type of training will I get in the beginning?”
•”Do they have a generous compensation plan?”
•”Does the person I’m considering joining with have resources, experience, and education to help me grow in the beginning (a proven track record, if you will).”
These are just a few of many important questions to ask yourself when it comes to finding the best direct sales companies to work for!
I’ve been in direct sales for the past 2 years, and it’s become clear to me the leaders in the industry:
1. doTERRA Essential Oils -essential oils
2. Beauty Counter -natural makeup
3. Scout and Cellar – organic wine
4. Avon -makeup
5. Arbonne – makeup
6. Beach Body – fitness
7. Herbalife -supplements
8. Thrive -supplemnts
9. Plexus -supplements
10. Pampered Chef -cookingwear
YES. It is a business like any other and you will have to give it time & effort, but what I love about direct sales is that it can be a VERY small startup cost to try. Many women hold back in fear from doing something that deep down in their heart they’ve been wanting to do for sometime. I’ve watched many women dive into that fear to simply just try, and they’ve blown their own mind! Passive Income is INCREDIBLE, and no other industry lets you create it in such a way!
When you work with a great company with a great product, it makes “selling” easy. I don’t like to really call it sales because I don’t feel like I’m selling a product when I truly love and believe in what it can do for people. I simply share my passion and use my product to serve others well. I think when you are able to do that with a company’s product (serve others), that speaks volumes for how amazing they are.
I do believe there are a few key questions that you need to ask yourself before jumping in and signing on to any company. I work for a direct sales company in the wellness industry, and I did a lot of research before jumping on to work with them. Many don’t think to ask these important questions, but it can honestly be a make or break in your success.

•This is not a “Get Rich Quick” scheme. Growing a direct sales business TAKES TIME! I’m currently generating between 4-6k a month after 2 years of consistent work and effort! It’s made a HUGE difference in my life as I was able to stop working full time to focus on growing my business further, but I put a lot of time & effort into growing!
•It’s not for everyone, but it can be. You may jump into this wanting to feel out the water. While I thoroughly enjoy what I do and what I sell, I’ve had to overcome some mental barriers to grow out of my comfort zone and build both my personal and business confidence! It has turned my into a NEW confident and strong entrepreneur! I love evolving and self growth and that is something that you have to be willing to do! With the right company and right leaders above you, it is a life changing and GIVING experience that I HIGHLY recommend for anyone wanting to grow!
•Don’t buy into a lot of debt. Make sure the company you ultimately choose isn’t putting you into debt. Be smart about your approach. My husband and I gave my business 3 months. I had to prove to him that in 3 months I was at least doubling what I was putting in. If in 3 months after SERIOUS effort we weren’t “there”, I was going to step back. Be wise with your money, even when trying to grow it.
•Mindset- When growing in direct sales, you HAVE to support your mindset! This means podcasts, marketing books, reading blogs, having a business mentor (someone in your company for accountability) and just material that fuels your brain with the right information on a regular basis. Growing a successful direct sales business takes a lot of trial and error. You only “fail” when you quit. My biggest piece of advice is to always try and reflect on your outcome. If it wasn’t what you wanted it to be, ask yourself “Why?’ Don’t sulk in the emotion of failure or rejection. Push that aside and ask yourself “What went wrong and how can I improve.” THIS. This is how you succeed.
*Everyone grows differently. Don’t compare yourself to how others are growing. Look at YOUR strengths and grow how you want to grow. If it’s through social media, awesome. If it’s growing a business through an incredibly strong in-person network, even better! Everyone does these businesses differently, and you have to connect with your heart & strengths.

I’m going to leave you with this blog from MindbodyGreen. It’s on the top regrets that people have at the end of their lives. This is something we don’t think about often because 1. It’s uncomfortable and 2. We’re so caught up in being busy with the craziness & current work demands of life. It’s time to stop & reflect on your life:
Are you REALLY doing what you LOVE?
Who do you REALLY want to be?
What do you REALLY want to accomplish?
Are you REALLY happy?
If you’ve been considering this business venture for quite some time, this is your sign. You’ll never know until you try. Don’t get to the end of your life with regrets. Take calculated risks and go chase your dreams. I’m right here with you.
