Every single thing the others have listed make the direct sales industry such an amazing place for women (guys too, of course)!

For me, it's about building a little empire for my family. An empire, to me, means time freedom, large income potential, free vacations (or, enough in earnings to easily treat my family to vacations), a feeling of community, being part of something bigger than yourself and the overall ability to live life by design.

Love of product, being home for my family, and helping others succeed. It's just how I roll.

Besides income, flexibility is my top reason. I have MS and some other health issues and direct sales allows me the opportunity to work at my own pace.

I joined my company because I love the storytelling concept and it fits so well with me being an author. Since joining, I have found my greatest joy comes from working with others to start a business and create their own strong economy for their family. It allows me to make a difference for someone else.

I'm echoing some of what has already been said, but here are the key thoughts for me:

1. Love the product
2. Enjoy building relationships with fun women
3. Flexible income

Well said everyone and I share all the similar sentiments. For me, I'm already buying natural/non toxic personal care products and since it's the same price points as regular stores but better quality it makes sense to use what I already love and build a business at the same time. I'm also especially proud that I'm not sharing something that's costing people more money or overpriced as people outside of DS/mlm tend to think. This aspect has made it very easy to be successful in my business .

Definitely does help to have a second income, the flexibility to work when I want, time to spend with my family!

1) Income potential through my love of candles. 2) An additional stream of income 3) Ease, fun, and achievable/duplicable by any one.

Flexibility for sure - as a mom with teens, it is hugely important for me to be able to be at home as much as I can... but my number one reason for being a DS business woman is because I plum love making money and helping others achieve their dreams and goals.
