Who are the REAL Direct Sales Winners?  

Certainly the company owners are successful   Or not…  many Direct Sales companies fail in the first 2 years because of poor planning,  but for those that do survive the ‘terrible’ two’s’, yes, their planning pays off and they reap the rewards of residual income.  They also will have brought in a few key ‘master distributor’ or ‘founders’.  These folk, if they stuck with it through the launch stage, will be starting to get pay back in full.  So, yup, they are winners.  

Who else wins it in Direct Sales?  Is there any Real Money left to be made , if you weren’t there right in the beginning?  


It used to be that companies reserved about 50% of their total payout for the top 2% , but recently, companies have been taking a new approach to the age old problem of retention   Early payouts for top recruiters are now attracting big hitters to jump in and they are not just jumping from company to company.  Todays newbies are coming from other industries.  The economy may be partly to blame.  With fewer high-end sales positions available, many uniquely quailed sales reps have had to think less traditional and have turned to Direct Sales.  These rising stars are WINNING BIG, with companies offering new bonus as big as $3,000 to $300,000 in your first 3 months.

That kind of cash is attractive and professional sales reps are taking notice.  Direct Sales stereo types are a thing of the past.  Todays top earners, the REAL Winners are Reps with ‘play to win-win’ philosophy.   

These are the  new rain maker‘Rainmakers’!  


They respect, and always try to satisfy, the best interests of their prospects.  Knowing that a win for the client means a win for them too. They are also extremely dedicated to becoming top performers.  They have often times been in the position before and they have a won’t settle attitude, exhibiting the hustle, passion, and intensity it takes to achieve what only the elite achieve.

Winner Do.  They just do.  They do the work.  They look for opportunity and they make things happen.  Anyone can be a Direct Sales Winner.  Companies have heard the request and are now rewarding ‘The New Kid”.  Getting some of the action has never been easier!  It’s a great time for Direct Sales!
