Inc. 5000 reveals Top Direct Selling Companies Included in Its Fastest-Growing List

Inc. 5000 has just released their annual list of fastest-growing private companies in the United States and six leading direct selling companies has made it to the prestigious list again. They are Texas-based WorldVentures, Arizona-based Isagenix, Utah-based ARIIX and Xyngular, Ohio-based Pure Romance, and Jeunesse Global from Florida.

Inc. comes up and compiles these rankings through each of these US-based, privately held companies’ percentage revenue growth over the past three years (2013 to 2016 in this case). Microsoft, Domino’s Pizza, Dell, LinkedIn and Pandora are just some of the big names that have gained national and world-wide exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000 which provides a special look at America’s cream of the crop within the economy’s most active segment, independent small businesses.

Released online at, the 2017 edition has been considered the most competitive by far in the list’s history and rightfully so, with the average company making a whopping 481 percent three-year average growth and all companies in the list collectively producing 619,500 jobs.

Leading this year’s honorees is Skillz, a San Francisco-based company known for developing a mobile platform that allows users to host online video game tournaments as well as directly engage with fans of other sporting events.  More importantly, the company has reached a 50,059 percent growth during the past three years, a milestone that sets the company apart from the others on the list.

WorldwideVentures, the Plano, Texas-based direct selling company emerged as the highest ranking direct selling company this year at No. 799. The company has been on the list for a record four consecutive times and Founder and Chief Visionary Officer Wayne Nugent couldn’t be any more excited. “We’re honored to once again be named to the fastest-growing companies list.  We continue to gain recognition and earn awards as a growing company, as well as a leading direct-sales organization. Our continued rise in ranking on this list shows our commitment to create a company that stands the test of time. This is a great achievement for our corporate team and Independent Representatives around the world who has worked so hard to deliver results,” he further added.

Others who made it in the list came from the Consumer Products and Services and Health industries and were all part of the list in previous years too: ARIIX in 2016, Isagenix from 2007 to 2016, Jeunesse Global from 2014 to 2016, Xyngular in 2016, and Pure Romance from 2007 to 2008 and then on 2011 and 2016.

Table below shows each company’s three-year growth:

2017 RANK
WorldVentures 565% $880.4M 677 799
Jeunesse Global 518% $1335.9 M 481 867
ARIIX 249% $150.3 M 1546 1581
Isagenix 106% $924.3 M 2206 3098
Pure Romance 86% $203.2 M 4768 3577
Xyngular 42% $56.1 M 4005 4948

This year’s list marks the 11th time in a row that Isagenix has been recognized and such recognition has earned the company a place on both the company’s prestigious list as well as its exclusive 10x Club which only a few honorees has been able to achieve (fewer than half of one percent to be more specific).

Isagenix CEO and Co-Founder Jim Coover had this to say: “It is an incredible honor to be recognized in the Top 5000 for 11 consecutive years. Our family is honored to work side by side with our nearly 1,000 employees and tens of thousands of independent distributors who share our values and no-compromise products with loyal customers around the world. It is amazing to think that what started 15 years ago in a small Arizona warehouse with 10 employees and five products has grown to impact the health and wellness of so many on a global scale.”

Toxin-free wellness products company ARIIX, made a 249 percent three-year growth rate, making the list for the second consecutive year.  ARIIX Founder and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Yates had nothing but praises for his company’s latest milestone.  “We’re very humbled to receive such incredible recognition for our record-breaking growth here at ARIIX. This phenomenal achievement is thanks to our hardworking and dedicated Representatives and employees all over the world. We wouldn’t be the company we are today, or the billion-dollar company we will be in the near future, without them.”
