Utah Attorney General To Speak At Direct Selling Edge Conference

We are pleased to announce that the Attorney General of Utah, Sean Reyes, will be speaking at the 15th Direct Selling Edge Conference to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 20-21, 2016.

Mr. Reyes will discuss the legal issues within the industry.  Then, he will answer your  questions.

At our two-day school for new and young direct selling companies, education is provided on legal issues, compensation plans, software, social media, recruiting, payment processing, compliance, asset protection, and how to build an iconic company.

I came to this conference two years later than I should have. Had I come two years earlier, I would have saved over $100,000 and two years. - T.B.

Ask Victoria:  How Do You Calculate Landed Cost?
