This is the last installment of interviews with military spouses (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) who have found successful careers with a direct sales company. The final spouse, Lyndsey, has a full time job as a pharmaceutical sales representative and works with viaONEHOPE in her spare time.
Lyndsey Wilson: viaONEHOPE A graduate of Ohio State University with a degree in marketing, Lindsey has worked in pharmaceuticals sales for 12 years. Even though her three year old is 'director' of her household during deployment, Lyndsey was recently promoted to director and founding leader at viaONEHOPE. Onehope wine, out of Napa, is an organization devoted to 'cause commerce'. “HALF of everything we do is donated to charity nationally. We also enable our CEOs to help raise funds for local organizations through fun wine tastings” #winenot #mixminglemakeanimpact
It is apparent from these military spouse testimonies they have found fulfillment and a successful method of earning income through these direct sales opportunities. If you are considering this path, it is essential you vet and research the company you are considering joining through resources like the Better Business Bureau and by talking to others who have chosen to sell the products or services.
Do you work in direct sales? What advice can you give to others considering this career path?
