Every year we take a long, thorough look at the state of the channel around the globe in our Billion Dollar Markets issue. We always look forward to this issue because there are so many encouraging stories for direct selling happening around the world.
I hope you enjoy this data-driven, in-depth article covering the current state of the channel in The Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe. While some markets are down or stagnant, others are experiencing positive signs of growth despite the difficult global economic situation and lingering supply chain issues.
Tony Jeary contributes an article full of practical advice on becoming a more inspirational leader in all facets of your life this month.
Don’t miss the excerpt from this month’s Iconic Insights podcast where our host Heather Chastain interviews the incomparable Les Brown. We also explore two companies in this issue—4Life and pawTree. And you don’t want to miss our take on single-level distribution models and how they are changing the way direct sellers do business.
