I could not recommend this book more and am grateful Randy wrote it.  Too many books on Direct Selling have been written by people who really haven't had the success they claim or sustained success.  Randy Gage has had massive success in the business and sustained it for several decades.  This gives Randy insights and expertise that very few have and even fewer share. 
- Dana Collins, Arbonne  


Direct Selling Success is undoubtedly the BEST GUIDE if you are building a team!  Randy gives you a clear path and, most importantly, a proven path that will help you achieve your goals.  Every time I read one of his books, I feel a sense of peacefulness that reassures me that we are doing things right.

- Jeremiah Bradley, CEO Nimbus Performance

Dream. Struggle. Victory!  Wherever you are in your building process, this book will help you dream bigger, conquer your struggles, and claim your victory.  You might disagree on some points. We sure did. But that will help you do the critical thinking required for your ultimate success.
