Every direct selling company needs capital and / or new partners at some point in its history: during early growth, as the company approaches momentum, or in a period of plateau or decline.

The challenge is not just finding the money, but locating the investing partner who understands — and values — the unique character of the direct selling industry.

The First Step is to Define Your Needs.

Use this checklist as an initial review:

  • Is your challenge fast growth, slow growth, or something else?
  • Are you open to acquiring a direct selling company or its assets?
  • Are you seeking a loan or an equity partner?
  • Are you looking for an exit? Would you consider, a merger, strategic alliance or acquisition of some kind?
  • Are you well prepared to talk to a capital partner, with books in order and a compelling narrative about your company’s value?
  • Do you have the necessary legal and accounting resources in place?

If you’re unsure about some of the answers, no problem. Sheffield has the experience and expertise to guide you through all these issues and more.
