2022 was another topsy-turvy year for the channel as we tried to find a new normal in a post-pandemic world. In this month’s cover story, we take a look back at what shaped 2022. And—more importantly—we discuss the stories and trends we think the industry will be focused on in 2023 and beyond. It’s a can’t-miss look back and look ahead every executive must read. I hope you enjoy it!
We also provide a comprehensive recap of our Fall Direct Selling University, held in October, in this issue. We are so grateful for the positive feedback we’ve received! The energy in the room was palpable; so many first-time speakers were on hand to share new stories and perspectives. We are already planning the Spring 2023 DSU!
The end of the year is a great time to reflect on the teams you’ve assembled and how to help them achieve at their maximum potential. With that in mind, we asked renowned leadership expert Tony Jeary to share his thoughts on how to create and maintain High-Performing Teams.
Don’t miss the excerpt from this month’s Iconic Insights podcast where our host Heather Chastain interviews LimeLife by Alcone Co-Founder & Chairwoman Michele Gay. Michele was our highest rated speaker at DSU—to say she electrified the room is an understatement! I know you will find key takeaways on female financial freedom and the future of direct selling in this month’s excerpt.
