As someone who used a social selling company to develop a shy, insecure, bullied child, I know how effective using this joint business as a vehicle for development, resume building and personal growth.
But… How do I choose which company?
Choosing a direct sales company for my teen and myself is daunting. There are hundreds of direct sales and MLM companies out there.
Selecting the right one needs to be a joint decision. When starting a new direct sales or mlm business here are 10 things to consider when choosing a direct sales company.
10 Things to Considering as You Choose a Direct Sales Company with Your Teen
#1: Is the product one that interests BOTH you and your TEEN?
#2: Is the product something your Teen could market to their friends and those they come in contact with?
#3: What is the personality of the company? Is it Young and Fresh or Old and Dated?
#4: What social media platforms does the company utilize for marketing and training and does that work with those my teen is active on?
#5: What is the startup cost? Can/Should my Teen help with the initial startup fee?
#6: What are the minimums to stay active?
#7: What is the Commission Rate?
#8: Does the company already provide a program for teens/kids?
#9: Can you include your teen in company events, conventions, monthly team meetings? Is your mentor open to including your teen?
#10: Is the company a party plan company? If you hope to grow your teen’s confidence I highly recommend you find a party plan company to provide the most opportunity to work with people in small/controlled settings.

Once you’ve selected your business, the journey begins. It is NOT easy working with your teen. Bridging the gap between child and business partner is tricky.
