In an effort to bring to life the Inspiring Entrepreneurs theme that marks the Direct Selling Association’s (DSA) 2012 Annual Meeting in Grapevine, Texas, the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) held the Entrepreneurs in Action Walkathon to benefit the Greater Dallas Chapter of Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).
The walk raised support and awareness for NFTE, which is dedicated to helping at-risk youth from throughout the greater Dallas region: 1.) stay in school; 2.) recognize business opportunities; 3.) plan for successful futures. Coming on the heels of NFTE’s Youth Bizplan Challenge, held Friday, June 1, 2012, the walkathon kicked off the DSA’s three-day Annual Meeting and allowed NFTE program participants to share their business ideas with DSA member executives, most of whom are entrepreneurs who have built careers working with the world’s top brands.
