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
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
