Proud Supplier Member to the DSA
We are very proud to announce that our coaching company, Elizabeth & Danny Clarke Ltd (The VIP Life), has officially become supplier members of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). In 2017, I added a secret goal to my vision board – to be a supplier member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). Everyone said it couldn’t be done. In fact, when we asked, we were given a flat no. Network Marketing Trainers are not welcome. But guess what? We did it!
This makes Elizabeth and I, the first and only Network Marketing trainers in the world to have the official backing of the DSA.This is epic.
No one thought we could do it and frankly we had some doubts, but this only goes to show that if you keep going you CAN achieve your goals. If you had told us in 2017 this would be happening, we would have laughed at you, as the amount of hate we dealt with when we started as coaches was incredible. That was such a tough year, but what is it they say? What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
In fact, it drove us on. It made us even more determined to remove the stigma from the industry of network marketing and show everyone there is a different way to do it.
Hard selling is gone, and relationship building is where it is at. And it gets results. Not just short term but more importantly long term, results you can build on. And having been elected by the DSA will enable us to reach even more people with this message as it shows network marketing is a legitimate career choice for millions around the world.
So, not only does this make us stand out in the world of network marketers as the ones who are doing it differently, it helps us all, as we will be able work from the inside and be the voice for our industry.
With a seat at the table, we can now make a real impact at a corporate level to share a genuine and honest view of what’s happening in the industry from a business builder’s perspective.
Our intention is to ensure more support and protection for all of you. We have your back.
We can now use the DSA logo on our website and company literature as an official DSA supplier member. Even better, we have now been officially recognised at the 2019 Direct Sellers Association AGM in London, where we were presented with our certificate of membership.
We hope this is the first link to build much greater trust between trainers / coaches and leaders within the industry. Rightly so, some leaders are sceptical of opening up their downlines to external trainers as we work in a pretty much unregulated space.
With this new relationship, it allows us to put our flag in the ground and demonstrate our commitment as trainers forever more.
On a personal level, to be given this seal of approval is a huge honour and we readily accept the responsibility it gives us to support other DSA members, plus Network Marketers both in the UK and globally, who make up those great companies.
Finally, we want to express our thanks to everyone who has helped us to get to where we are today. Our clients of course. Friends and peers in the industry. Fellow coaches. Mentors. Both of our families, and even those who doubted us along the way.
You know who you all are.
Much love to you all,
Dan & Liz Clarke
