Here’s a bright note that doesn’t often make reports on employment conditions in the UK: self-employment is at an all-time high of 4.16 million.
Direct selling is part of that growth, with nearly 400,000 people working in the industry – and contributing £390 million annually to the UK economy. Just this year, Amway UK has seen 26 percent more people signing up to start an Amway business.
Direct selling often is called recession-proof, offering an income opportunity even in tough economic times. It also appeals to budding entrepreneurs, and to those looking for a flexible second income option that works around other commitments.
New shopping concepts are attracting more people to direct selling as a convenient shopping solution, too. Amway UK is pioneering a new kind of sophisticated retail experience at its refurbished London Flagship Experience Centre, where consumers can try products before they buy.
Such innovations help Amway business owners grow their businesses…a bright note all its own.

In just 30 days, more than 1,100 European Amway employees and business owners participated in 11 of the world’s most popular outdoor events and fundraisers with the help of Team Nutrilite Europe.
That’s quite an achievement. And it’s proof that Team Nutrilite athletes recognize the importance of optimal health and being good global citizens.
Team triumphs included:
- The 24-hour Mountain Bike Race: One of 500 teams competing, Team Nutrilite finished 6th in Munich.
- Kiev International Marathon: ABO (Amway business owner) Ludmila Shelest won 1st place in the women’s category.
- Naisten Kymppi 10k: Our ABOs dressed up as vegetables, won 1st prize and donated 16,320 EUR to UNICEF to support girls’ education in Nepal.
- Presse-Meile: Amway Europe sponsored this running event in Geggendorf, Germany, for 3,000 participants.
In just one month Team Nutrilite members achieved personal fitness success, raised money for charities, and took part in food education classes. Imagine what they can accomplish in a year!
Recent Artistry events during the London and New York Fashion Weeks put our brand in very fashionable company.
Amway U.K. hosted an Inspiring Diversity Fashion Show at the Amway Experience Center to showcase up-and-coming designers and raise funds for One by One Campaign charities.
In New York, the Amway North America Artistry Lounge offered fashion and beauty writers a place to relax and recharge while exploring Artistry skin care and cosmetics.
We definitely consider these ”runway successes” for Artistry.
