I felt like I was meant for something bigger and wasn’t living up to my potential.
Before I can share where I started, I need share my past. And for me, it seems odd to think of, but would you have guessed I was a wedding planner?
In fact, I owned my own wedding planning business along with a rental business and ran a wedding expo.
I wanted the freedom I thought the word “OWNER” came with.
I wanted to be able to be home with my kids, meet clients at my home office and be able to pick and choose when I worked and what hours I worked.
But boy was I WRONG!
What I didn’t realize is that I wasn’t the owner of my business.
My wedding businesses owned me!
I worked long hours, was away from home, and was struggling to make ends meet even though I was doing more weddings than I could handle. On the outside it looked glamorous, but it was anything but that and it was starting to take a tole on my health. Who knew handling the stress of others was weighing me down.
THE TURNING POINT
Little did I know that New Years had a whole new meaning that year.
For New Years we took a trip with our family to Cancun. Just ADULTS! (Que the hallelujah chorus!)
As we were swimming at night. (Because that is what you can do without kids in Mexico!! ;) My Sister in law told us her husband was leaving his marketing business to work with her on her doTERRA business because they had their first 10k month.
I WAS IN SHOCK...
I was a small business owner. I had no idea a network marketing business could actually be a “real business”. Let alone people I knew actually were being successful at something they felt passionate about and made an incredible living with.
I had to learn more!!!
So for the rest of the trip I asked ALOT of questions. I needed to know how it worked. How you got paid. How they had done it...
While inside a little voice wondered...."Could I do it too?"
And I knew I had to make a decision to make.
Do I stay with what I was doing, KNOWING I physically couldn't work anymore hours, make any more money then I already was and wasn't home on the weekends with my family?
So I took the leap. And started my own doTERRA business.
And an incredible thing happened....
I leaped.... and flew
THEN & NOW
After 2 years my doTERRA business did more in 1 month than I did all year with wedding planning that I had been doing for 6+ years.
I got to choose when I work.
I got to be involved in humanitarian efforts I never thought possible.
I have learned more about myself then I have ever before.
And I get to have something that lights me up to contribute to the world without compromising the time I have while my kids are still small.
And I am grateful EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I took the chance to be uncomfortable and JUMP.
I'm not saying there hasn't been blood sweat in tears along the way. This is hard work. But it has been so much more worth it than any of my businesses I had done before. Financially, physically, spiritually and socially.
When I get a text in the middle of the night saying “Thank you, IT WORKED!!” I know I am on the right path.
Could it be what you have been looking for too?
There are 3 main reasons I choose to align with doTERRA:
1. PROVEN GROWTH: doTERRA is as movement sweeping the US and many other countries quickly as families discover they can have options at home for greater health. This is why doTERRA has become the largest essential oil company in the last 9 years and sources around 85% of their essential oils exclusively. However even with this quick growth, a 3rd party survey said 9 out of 10 people on the east coast of the US have never heard of doTERRA. Translation: doTERRA is set up for exponential growth. And the timing is beautiful. And with retention rate of 65% compared to the industry average of 8%-10%, you are growing a much more sustainable business with long term growth.
2. CPTG: When doTERRA was found they knew there was, and still isn't, any governing board to claim if an essential oil is pure or not. In fact, a leading essential oil chemist said that 75% of the essential oils on the market today are adulterated (meaning they have fillers, are switched with cheap imitations, or are just plain ol' fake!) This is why doTERRA came up with the standard Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade or CPTG. Think of it as doTERRA's promise to us that their oils will be pure, without adulteration or pesticides, harvested from areas with the best chemical constituents. Because of this standard medical centers and research facilities are starting to incorporate and test with doTERRA essential oils because they know they will get the same thing every time. And when it comes to my family, I also want the best I can depend on.
3. CO-IMPACT SOURCING: This is the heart beat of doTERRA. Their co-impact sourcing model empowers artisan farmers and distillers in countries all over the world as they partner with them to ensure they get fair and on time wages. doTERRA invests back into these communities with schools and medical centers. They hire and let women work in countries who would never have the opportunity to better their lives. They have created schools were both boys and girls are allowed to attend. Know that when you open up a bottle of doTERRA essential oils you aren't just getting the best, but you are touch SO MANY other people around the world.
HOW DO YOU GET PAID?
So exactly how can you earn a part time or full time income with doTERRA?
The best part about owning your own business is that you can chose how little or how much you would like to earn. And that is exactly what this is. Owning your own business where you get to decide when you work, how hard you work, and what the possibilities are. It’s all up to you. There are no caps or restrains on what you can or can’t make. Some people would like to earn enough to only focus on their passions and other people just want to make enough to pay an extra bill. Watch the video below to learn exactly how easy it is to earn your first commission and how in the long run the work you do today, goes far beyond tomorrow.
