More and more women want to achieve better work-life balance, earn extra income while nurturing their families. Some are keen to start their own business, manage their time and be their ‘own boss’. One of the quickest, easiest, and low risk opportunities available to women is to be empowered visionaries and entrepreneurs within the direct selling industry.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, prominent Asian direct selling company QNET continues to develop young women entrepreneurs who can enrich their families, make a difference in their communities and in the lives of others, and reach for their own dreams.
Khaled Diab, Regional General Manager, QNET said: “QNET has always been a keen supporter of women’s rights and of gender equality. Based on the statistics provided by the Direct Selling Association 74.4% of the Independent Representatives and workforce working in the direct selling business are women. With their nurturing nature and ‘never say die’ attitude they have greatly contributed to the success of the direct selling business here in the MENA region and worldwide.”
Leading US agency USAID (United States Agency International Development) aptly describes the growing importance of developing women leaders. It says: “Progress cannot be delivered in a vacuum. For societies to thrive, women and girls must have access to education, healthcare, and technology. They must have control of resources, lands, and markets. And they must have equal rights and equal opportunities as breadwinners, peace-builders and leaders.”
