A major focus of the Direct Selling Education Foundation is to create and collect informative resources for anyone seeking an accurate understanding of direct sales. Many of our resources are created with the college classroom in mind, but they can serve as helpful assets in any setting. We also incorporate the data and research provided by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) regularly, too, and we link to many of those resources below and throughout our website.
