Direct Selling Association Celebrates the Social Micropreneur

Over the past three days, the Direct Selling Association (DSA) held the annual Be Connected conference at the beautiful Loews Lake Las Vegas. Over 300 direct sellers from hundreds of different organizations gathered together to share ideas, reconnect and pontificate the social future of the industry. While there were many messages to stimulate my thinking for the next several weeks (so much for a relaxing Christmas vacation), I was especially intrigued when Good Morning America’s Tory Johnson took the stage for her keynote on Friday.

After sharing some of her story, and affirming her respect of direct sellers (all of whom are social micropreneurs) she shared the story of a 14 year old in the audience named Tori Molnar. Tori is unique from most 14 year olds. She started a direct selling company of her own called Utoria, which reaches out to 14-20 year old young ladies and gives them the opportunity build their own independent business.

Our country (and world for that matter) needs more Toris; young individuals who are courageous and bold visionaries, who aren’t afraid of risk and failure, and who are passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of others. Tori is providing a platform for other young ladies to share in her vision, and get on the path to financial freedom earlier in life than most.

Tori is a social micropreneur.

Utoria is a company that gives young women from ages 14 to 20 the opportunity to run their own business.

  1. Cool article. Would prefer that when I click the pics, I get the website, and not just a larger picture…

    Not sure if WordPress allows you to do that. I tried and go nothing. I did link to it in the text, though. Thanks for reading.

    Justin, when you add the picture, you have the oppty to add a URL. By default it’s the URL where the picture is housed, but you can change it to something else. Hope that helps. Great seeing you this past week!

      I tried that, but for some reason, it gave me a 404 error message when I clicked on the image. I’ll have to research this some more.

    Thanks for the mention! I greatly appreciate it.
