“There is no road to freedom, freedom is the road.”
These words by Mahatma Gandhi are the essence of freedom. We all dream of walking the path we define for ourselves, on our own terms. In our quest for success, we seek freedom from self-doubt, fear of failure, and inhibitions. In our professional lives, we are rewriting the rules with new vigor as we chase our dreams. The freedom to do what we want, and how we want it is central to our career blueprint. The Direct Selling industry is a great example of how freedom can give wings to our hopes and dreams – it’s no wonder that India’s INR 98.5 billion direct selling industry is growing at a steady clip.
As we celebrate India’s 73rd Independence Day, let’s take a look at the different kinds of freedoms that direct sellers enjoy.
The chance to work for ourselves and be independent is a dream for many of us. As an entrepreneur, in direct selling, you are your own boss. You have the freedom to build your direct selling business from scratch, and making it successful is purely dependent on the hard work of you and your team. In direct selling, your professional freedom is also supported with the right tools for professional growth. By being a part of a well-known direct selling company like QNET India, you will get access to world-class training and workshops that will help shape your journey.
Direct selling offers financial freedom by giving you the scope to scale your earnings according to your needs. If you want to supplement your steady source of income you can choose to work part-time. Since you are the owner of the business, you can increase earnings by increasing your efforts. In direct selling, all that matters when it comes to earnings is hard work and consistent efforts. The more effort you put in, the more returns you reap. The industry doesn’t discriminate on the basis of gender, which means that when it comes to women direct sellers, direct selling gives them the freedom to earn what they deserve.
Today, the idea of having a flexible daily routine, free from the 9 to 5 cliché, is becoming increasingly popular. Instead of working out of the same cubicle every day, we want to have the option of working at a café or from home. These individual freedoms are becoming increasingly necessary for people to thrive and perform in today’s competitive environment. Direct selling offers you the freedom to work wherever you want to, and in your own terms. What’s more, you get to choose from a variety of products and services that are designed to help enhance your lifestyle. From health and wellness products, luxury timepieces to exotic holidays, you get to choose what works for you and your direct selling business.
Freedom to embrace failures
Failures are as much a part of one’s journey as success, and direct selling allows you to embrace your failure, learn from it, and rise from it. Not having the freedom to fail almost equals to not having the freedom to experiment and innovate. Direct sellers may face rejection, but that is only a small bump on the road to success. Each failure is an opportunity to learn from and become even better at what you do.
The freedom to be who we are, to reach our goals and be the best version of ourselves is perhaps the most important of all. This Independence Day, let’s celebrate the fact that direct selling offers us these freedoms and so much more.
