One of the many reasons people choose to begin a career in direct selling is that it offers a flexible work schedule. A person can work part-time or full-time, and can set their own goals and determine how they are going to achieve those goals.
While some choose to approach direct selling as a full-time endeavor, many see it as a fun way to earn a little extra income in their spare time.
I just finished reading an interesting article from the Muncie, Indiana, Star Press about three sixth-grade schoolteachers who work together outside the classroom as well as inside. The three are direct sellers who, though they each sell different products, team up for in-home sales parties.
The article notes that while the school year can be a busy time for teachers, the three said they wanted something to do after hours and during school breaks.
‘“It’s an opportunity to have fun, fellowship with women and earn a little extra money on the side,”’ one of the women told the Star Press, later adding, ‘“…There’s freedom to do things on your own schedule.”’
I couldn’t have said it better.
