Have you noticed how more and more women are starting home based businesses?
Even in my own network circle, I’ve seen a shift in the number of moms who have decided to go full-time, working from home in 2014 alone.
To be honest, I love it!
It made me want to do a little research just to see for myself, how much the industry is growing.
Here is what I discovered…
- According to the Direct Selling Association, in 2013, the direct selling sales force increased 5.7% to 16.8 million in 2013, a record high. Get this, even during the height of the recession, the home based industry experienced a surge of new direct selling independent representatives.
- In 2013, retail sales of USD 32.67 billion for the direct selling channel were up 3.3% in the United States, from USD 31.63 billion in 2012.
- The U.S. market increase of 3.3% in 2013 continued an upward trend that began after 2009 and brought the industry to a record high.
- Direct sales grew 0.8% in 2010, 4.6% in 2011 and 5.9% in 2012.
And guess what? It is still growing. Definitely a reason to take a deeper look if starting a home based business of your own is something you’ve been considering.
