There are lots of perks to having a direct sales business.

Rose are red.
Violets are blue.
There are so many perks
I get from you.

You probably signed up for your direct sales company because you loved the product and figured you might as well get a discount. Maybe you hoped to make some extra spending money and get out of the house a few times a month. But if you've been in it for more than a few weeks, I bet you're realizing that you are getting a lot more than you thought.

Sure, money is a good thing, but the truth is that most direct sellers don't make that much money in their business. The perks of being a direct seller go far beyond the perks of having a regular job. It's important to periodically remind yourself of those perks for the times when you're discouraged and frustrated.

  1. Discounts on products.
  2. Access to exclusive products such as hostess gifts, samples, etc.
  3. Excellent business training you can take with you and apply to other areas of your life or future business ventures.
  4. Prizes through incentive programs.
  5. Free trips to places you wouldn't go to on your own, and even if you did, the experiences on incentive trips are enhanced beyond what you'd plan.
  6. Opportunities to travel to new places. Conferences and other training events might not be in your backyard, and you'll have the chance to visit new cities.
  7. Friendships that can last a lifetime.
  8. Personal growth and development. You've probably learned a lot about yourself through your business activities.
  9. Being on the inside. You get to hear about new products and programs before customers.
  10. Freedom and flexibility. You can set your own schedule and make your own decisions.
  11. Unlimited potential. You may not take advantage of it all the time, but when you need to or want to make more money, you can ramp things up.
  12. Tax benefits. Products, mileage, lunches, travel and office supplies are all tax deductible.
  13. Be your own boss. You don't have to answer to anyone, but you can set up accountability with your upline or a pacing partner.
  14. Confidence from leaving your comfort zone.
