Today’s episode is going to be a little bit different as I bring Greg Hind once again onto the podcast to talk about a direct selling industry survey we conducted a few weeks ago.
It’s been so much fun gathering the results, and getting to read your answers gave us a little bit more insight about the things that have been going on in the previous year in the direct selling industry.
Greg and I had a wonderful time chatting in today’s episode, and it’s our hope to be able to impart to you most of the things we found valuable in the recent survey we conducted, so let’s jump in and get started!
