Direct Selling News, using data from Lexis Nexis, Hoovers, Dun & Bradstreet, professional researchers, Standard & Poor’s, personal interviews, corporate websites and others, we are proud to offer this list. When verifying data, every attempt was made to reach a company spokesperson to gain input and approvals. This was not possible with all companies. We also unequivocally recognize that research and voluntary reporting cannot provide the entire picture of our industry.
