Whether you have been in a direct sales, party plan or network marketing company for a few weeks or a few years, you should always be trying to learn and grow as a business person, sales person and team leader.  I try to read as many articles, newsletters and training materials as I can get my hands on every day and week.  I have a short attention span so reading a full book is often difficult for me.  However there are a few books that I have read over the years that have been a huge help to me as I have grown my direct sales business & team.

Here are 12+ Books every Direct Sales, Party Plan & Network Marketing Consultant and Team Leader Should Read to help them be super successful:

Books every Direct Sales, Party Plan and Network Marketing Consultant and Team Leader Should Read
  • Build It Big: 101 Insider Secrets from Top Direct Selling Experts by the DSWA. (Direct Selling Women’s Alliance)  Build it Big was the first direct sales training book I read. It is full of training, ideas and motivation from top direct sales leaders in several industries and from multiple companies.  I recommend this book to every single 1 of my team members when they start. There is also a companion workbook you can purchase that is very helpful in going through this book and also creating training for your team from the chapters and topics.
  • The Leader Who Had No Title: A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in Life by Robin Sharma  I will admit this book was a little hard for me to follow especially the first few chapters. I really loved the principle and thought behind  Robin’s book and enjoy following him on social media.   You will learn more ways to work with and influence others, how to recognize leadership potential and how to be more innovative and purposeful as a leader.

What about you? Have you read any of these books or do you have any other must read books you think I should add to my list? Will you be adding any of these to your own personal library?  I would love if you would leave a comment below and share this post on social media too. Thank you!

  • This is a good list! I really want to read 4 hour work week. I have had a lot of bloggers/entrepreneurs recommend it or say it helped them with their business.

    • Thanks! I haven’t heard of the 4 Hour Work Week, will have to add it to my list of books to read. It is more blogging focused or just small biz/entrepreneur in general?

  • What a fabulous resource for Direct Sellers and Party Plan COnsultants….. thank you! I’m glad to see my favourite ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ is on the list…. I also like Anne Howie ‘Let’s Get This Party Started’.

    Thanks for sharing this!
