MONEY Trumps Almost Everything for Women

An interesting article/press release showing women who responded to a poll, their concern about the economy and its direction. This press release explains why the direct sales companies are answering the needs of women today.  Direct  Sales offers women and men the flexibility needed to earn more yet maintain a home, tend to children, and work a full time job.  If you need a little extra, you work a little; if you need more, you work more.  You decided on additional income wanted, divide the average show total and come up with how much you need to work to meet that goal. With direct sales, you can work morning, noon, or evening…just a couple hours, a few times a week can make a huge difference in a family’s lifestyle. It can be the difference in swim teams, dance troupes, gymnastic, traveling ball teams, college education, family vacations, the size of one’s home or type of car they drive.  It could just mean for a nurse, top administrator, doctor, pharmacist, business owner or CEO, etc be a fun interactive night out with other adults and an income to go to a party. Whether you are one who wants or loves the products, need extra income for a short or long period of time, or just want to have “fun” or “me” time, direct sales is calling. Your best friend. Only better.
