As we celebrate 20 years of innovations and insights, we take a look back on a few of DSN’s most important milestones. And, we asked industry leaders and legends to share how past evolutions and current opportunities are shaping the future of the industry.
L’Occitane International SA, the parent company of direct selling companies LimeLife by Alcone and Duolab, announced that the controlling shareholder for the company has decided against a deal that would have taken the company private.
DSN recognizes—for the first time ever—a group of innovative trailblazers, whose contributions push their companies’ trajectories upward, while reshaping the direct selling channel for the rest of us. More than two dozen companies answered the call to nominate their most accomplished achievers under the age of 40, who exemplify the kind of leadership skills and innovation that best represents the future of the direct selling channel.
LimeLife by Alcone recently received the Bravo Impact Award which honors the achievements of companies that take a holistic, measured and incremental approach to growth, innovation and operational integrity and excellence. Their story clearly embodies these values.
Hundreds of people representing 53 companies from around the world attended in person. And thousands more watched the event via free livestream. Awards and honors were revealed in several categories, including a Lifetime Achievement Award, the Bravo Awards and the DSN Global 100 List.
Direct selling’s unique culture of sharing has created an unbreakable bond between two Founder/CEOs. These leaders, who sit at the helm of two of the most innovative, buzzworthy companies in the channel, met several years ago when recording an episode of a DSN podcast, forging a fast friendship that has only strengthened over time.
The heartaches suffered, hurdles cleared and groundwork laid by direct selling’s extraordinary founding sisters are but one turn of a spinning wheel of inspiration. The next empowering turn comes from the bold, creative and tenacious spirits of these 35 current day female founders, whose modern leadership and vision reflects many of the ideals and principles of their predecessors.
After launching as a brand that sold lashes and theater makeup to Broadway stars in 1952, LimeLife has gone through a number of transformations, ultimately evolving into a direct selling company under Gay’s leadership, while still clinging to its professional makeup roots.
More than 30 speakers shared tangible action plans for how the industry’s leaders can continue to grow and adapt in the face of this year’s enduring challenges.
