If you have followed me for any length of time or attended a DS Edge Educational Conference, then you know I use NASCAR for a backdrop and comparison point when talking about Direct Selling.
Well in the latest actions by NASCAR on tire tampering, I see once again a great educational lesson that can be learned on self-policing and holding people accountable for their actions.

With the SEC now holding Gate Keepers accountable, it’s time those in a position of influence start fulfilling their responsibilities.
In this example of compliance from the NASCAR, we see where a Pit Crew made a decision to break the rules and it cost the whole team:
Crew Chief – Fined $125K and suspended for at least 6 races
Crew Members – Suspended for several races
Owner & Driver – Ripped of 75 points, moved from 6th place to 26th place in the standings
Reputation – A priceless hit!
This one P5 penalty could cost the team millions in lost sponsorships, lost races and who knows what else.
So What If…
…The DSA, ANMP, MLMIA took a stand and started holding their members and the member’s field forces accountable for their actions?
…The company owners took a stand and held their independent professionals, from the top down accountable for their actions?
…The If the independent professionals started holding each other accountable?
