I saw a segment this morning on direct selling, specifically geared toward men. The company is called Man Cave: http://www.mancaveworldwide.com/. Instead of jewelery and cosmetics, it’s all about grilling meat, drinking beer and male bonding.
So it seems that direct selling, or social selling as they are now calling it, is branching out to men as well as women who are looking to earn some extra income. Now, I have heard about a few men selling Avon over the years. As a matter of fact there was an article in the NY Times about the very subject:
As a matter of fact, if any of you men out there would like to make a little extra income, let me know! 🙂 LOL
Now men are selling Avon. Ok, not the norm but when if comes to finding ways to make some extra income, why should the direct selling industry be limited to just women? More and more men are helping their spouses with their business along with starting one of their own. With economic times being what they are, there is no longer any stigma about the type of business that men are now getting into. That point is being proven most assuredly by Man Cave, a direct selling company made just for men. So move over Mary Kay, Tupperware and Avon. There is a new company in town and it’s for men only. No girls allowed.
