Surprising way to find an upswing in midst of plunging job creation

Could Social Selling provide your own personal upswing?

After selling my most recent temporary staffing agency where we were dependent on job rates and the economy, I started my own Social Selling company that is based on entrepreneurship and women’s empowerment. Why did I do this? Because the unlimited opportunities available in Direct Sales are based on an individual’s potential more so than on the world economy.

Right place at the right time: When I co-founded Title Temps in my living room in 1996, there were no other agencies staffing title insurance professionals. Southern California title insurance companies used expensive bi-monthly lay-offs to manage work fluctuations and there were many job seekers who had been displaced after the 1993 Northridge earthquake. Three years later, companies were ramping up and we had employees ready to fill their needs. In 2001, having placed thousands of temporary professionals, we sold the company for $28 million. That was good timing.

Reflecting on the March 2013 job report this morning, I can’t help but know this is the right place and the right time for Direct Sales. The quintessential model of the American Dream, Social Selling allows you to work when you want and how you want, to get what you want. Our country is built upon entrepreneurship. Having the good fortune of being born in America, I feel patriotic to provide opportunities to individuals who want to take charge of their lives. If you are ready to change the way that you work, is it possible that Direct Selling might be right for you?
