This channel has many unique features and differs from the broader retail market.

Action Plan

Did you find it interesting to look at global statistics?

When you take note of the international statistics and become aware of the business you are involved in, it can give you confidence to share some of the statistics when introducing others to the business. Memorize some of the stats and as you refer to them others will be impressed with your overall knowledge of the industry.
