Growing at a rate of 175,000 a week in the U.S. along it's never been better. Globally, it's half a million a week. Gone are the days of the unethical practices that used to take advantage of people and families. Not to say they are not scams out there. I ran into one of them the other day, but they are in no way associated with the direct selling industry. With congressional law put in place, and more importantly organizations like DSA (Direct Selling Association) policing their own, the direct selling industry has changed the as a whole to a wonderful way to make a living without having answer to someone else, or limited on what your worth. And the perception is now of not only legitimate companies, but the products they produce are of the highest quality.
