Summer is upon us! As my oldest son recently graduated from high school, I can’t help but think about all the milestones and memories the last 18 years have held. And all the exciting changes that are on the horizon.
In many ways, I feel the same way about the direct selling industry. This issue is our biggest of the year—and that’s because it’s our chance to recap everything we have learned and shared at the spring Direct Selling University and the annual DSN Global Celebration events. Now is the time where we can celebrate everything the channel and its top companies have accomplished over the past year. And it’s the perfect moment to take a glance at the potential of a bright and prosperous future, too.
This issue is packed with recaps of Direct Selling University, the DSN Global Celebration, insights, trends and analysis of our annual Global 100 List as well as snapshot portraits of all 58 companies on it. We share in-depth coverage of all the Bravo Award recipients as well. We think there is a lot to celebrate in the channel right now—and many optimistic signs for continued growth in 2022 and beyond—this issue is full of all the reasons why!
Make sure to check out this month’s Company Spotlight on Le-Vel. They are marking a milestone this year—their 10th anniversary. This article takes a candid look back at where they’ve been and shines a light on their exciting next steps.
We’ve also included an excerpt from this month’s Iconic Insights podcast where our host Heather Chastain interviews the incredible Suze Orman, who delivers several powerful insights into not only how to best plan your financial future, but how to help your field do the same.
