Dear Direct Selling Heroes!
Would you like to be recognized as being the Real Heroes that helped put our communities back to work? Then take a leadership role in setting the foundation for direct selling companies to be recognized throughout the world as a way to earn extra income.
We are seeking a few dedicated Heroes to join us in planning a New Year Annual Dinner for Direct Sellers, Party Planners & MLM Companies. We also need assistance in planning monthly workshops for communities interested in starting a Home-Based Business.
The Direct Selling Planning Committee will have an opportunity to shine and be recognized at all events. We are looking for Heroes that can meetup on video conferences once a week for an hour and dedicate 1 to 2 hours per day working on task to complete leadership roles.
We will use an 18 month event planning timeline to plan for the yearly events. Because 18 months is a long time to make a commitment, I will post tasks that need to be completed on the meetup website. All tasks will be seen on this website so everyone can pitch in and help.
Synergy is my energy!!! IF YOU SEE A TASK THAT YOU CAN COMPLETE, IT'S YOURS FOR HOW EVER LONG YOU CAN HELP.
ARE YOU READY TO BE A COMMUNITY HERO?
*Open to anyone who wants to join the movement in starting their own Home-Based Business.
*Participants don't have to already have a business, just a positive attitude
*Internet access/video cam for weekly updates meetings.
BELOW IS A LIST OF TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
