Jeff Zalewski, President and CEO of Direct Selling Academy, Inc., is a man living by the personal philosophy of "lead by example and lead with action" and brings many years of "in the field" experience to Direct Selling Academy, Inc. Since 1995, Jeff has worked as an independent Business Success Coach and built a successful direct sales organization. In fact, Jeff set a company record as a distributor where he personally sponsored 10+ people (customers and distributors) each and every month for 73 consecutive months (over 800+ people).

Through his "in-the-field" experience, he has identified the core reasons why people fail and how they can overcome those pitfalls. One common challenge Jeff identified is underdeveloped skills in sales and marketing. Through countless hours of audios, articles, reports, training courses, seminars, workshops, and even one-on-one coaching, Jeff has taught literally thousands of people through a no-nonsense nuts 'n bolts approach on how to have greater success in building their business and brings his knowledge, field experience, and proven solutions into the curriculum at Direct Selling Academy, Inc.

In addition, it is proven the more we use all five of our senses, the more we comprehend what we are learning. For this reason, Jeff set out on a journey to develop an accelerated training performance improvement curriculum in a "hands-on" learning environment, which through research and market-testing proved effective and has led to the development and incorporation of many of the resources available here at the academy.

While we are a young company, what is taught within the curriculum is developed through years of field tested proven effective workable solutions and universal fundamentals that work in any business. Our objective at the Direct Selling Academy, Inc. is to help you accelerate your success, based on the core proven fundamental universal principles, strategies, and techniques, which helps accelerate your own success in your business... real performance improvement solutions that work for you.

Our Objective is to Help You Improve Your Performance and Accelerate Your Success
Through coaching and training over the years, Jeff Zalewski has found a common thread among marketers and that is the fact many of these people are still learning even after years of being in the industry. In fact, most are failing miserably and most do not come from a sales and marketing background. These same people are often thrust into a leader position and struggle to get their teams happy, productive, and duplicating, which only results in a whole team underperforming.

Statistics prove the Direct Selling Industry is rapidly growing. According to the Direct Selling Association's Growth and Outlook Survey Report, sales in the USA totaled $32.18 billion in 2006, up from $24.5 billion just six years earlier, with more than 74 percent of the American public having purchased goods or services through direct selling. Worldwide sales are strong with over $100+ billion. An estimated 15.2 million people are involved in direct selling in the USA, and close to 60 million worldwide.

Regardless of the fact the industry has been exponentially growing over the past half dozen decades, through our research of people in the industry, the majority of these direct sales agents are inexperienced and struggling to succeed in achieving their desired goals from their business. In fact, most of these people hardly break even.

Recognizing these facts, Jeff Zalewski has been on a mission to help people achieve greater success in their business. This mission feeds into the overall mission here at the academy, where we work to improve performance and accelerate success in this industry though the application of universal fundamentals. Whether we are providing service directly to the people of your organization or serving in a behind the scenes role, our service to you and your organization is to be your performance improvement specialists, helping you improve performance and accelerate success in your organization.

In achievement of this mission, we will continually strive to support self-regulation and compliance to high ethical standards within the Direct Selling Industry. We believe this mission will help preserve and protect this industry, including the ability to earn income through a multi-level compensation plan. We also believe every leader (including you) should support this initiative through professional certification of you and your team. In fact, our vision is for every company, industry association, and leader will encourage and highly recommend that the people in their organization recommend getting certified.
