Direct selling is a business model that offers entrepreneurial opportunities to individuals as independent contractors to market and/or sell products and services, typically outside of a fixed retail establishment, through one-to-one selling, in-home product demonstrations or online. Compensation is ultimately based on sales and may be earned based on personal sales and/or the sales of others in their sales organizations.
The Direct Selling Entrepreneur Workshop initiative offers colleges, business development organizations, and other educational partners a set of flexible workshop formats and accompanying free materials that can be delivered in flexible workshop formats or embedded into for-credit courses, providing entrepreneurship education and resources in collaboration with national leaders in the direct selling industry. We have developed three workshop formats that can fit a variety of venues and audiences.
