A resilient industry The network marketing industry has proven to be remarkably resilient, regardless of the economic climate. USA Today called direct selling “a recession-proof job”.
The World Federation of Direct Selling Associations reports that there were over 87 million direct sellers in 2010, an increase of about 18% from 74 million in 2009. Retail sales have also grown 15% from approximately USD117 billion in 2009, to more than USD132 billion in 2010.
Whether as a primary career choice or a passive income stream, the opportunity for generating income is incomparable. Moreover, starting a business in network marketing does not require a significant amount of expertise, time and money in the initial stages. Some established companies also offer avenues for its representatives to contribute to charity. As such, an increasing number of people are seizing the opportunity for financial freedom and a better life.
A golden opportunity One company that provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to better their lives and pursue their dreams, whilst giving back to society, is global direct selling company QNet. Based on the proven business model of network marketing, QNet offers its independent representatives the chance to work for themselves, earning sole or additional income.
