(Get my new E-book (free) 101 Uses for Essential Oils that Will Blow Your Mind!)

You may know that I personally love essential oils and also have a large wellness community, but you probably don’t know how it got started and the personal problems I had that got me hooked on the oils in the first place

Here’s the untold part of the story…

In 2010, I had been a struggling author and talk radio show host for five years (making about $50 a month) who at long last was introduced to the world of internet marketing and quickly found my fire.   Within a year, I had sold over 6 figures of products and programs and in 2012, I had created my own systems to help other wellness businesses develop products, and market and sell them online.

I loved the work I was doing. I had great clients and I was making more money than I had ever dreamed of, but … almost no one knew I was suffering terribly from post traumatic stress due to childhood trauma.

I was mostly silent about this issue and trying to handle it on my own.

My life was beyond my wildest dreams.  I had a great husband, four amazing kids and a thriving business, but I felt so awful inside, and I was struggling to make it through each day.  I was constantly fighting emotional pain, low energy, and anxiety.

One day a friend sent me a box of essential oils and I literally said out loud, “This is weird.”

Then I opened one of the bottles and the aroma of fresh oranges filled the air. My low spirits lifted immediately and right then and there I was hooked.  If something so small could help me feel this good, I needed it!

I signed up for the monthly purchasing program and for the next year I used oils religiously.  I craved them like oxygen and began to count on them for so many things — sleep, high energy, immunity, emotional balance, and staying calm to I make it through my life day by day.

According to my husband, I began to sprinkle oils on everything in sight, including him!  He was a dentist and would feel under the weather about once a week from being exposed to so many germs from his patients.  As soon as he started taking On Guard, he felt great all the time and became a big believer, sharing the oils with his staff and patients.

The more I researched oils, the more I found.  They could literally do thousands of things!  (check out my new E-Book, 101 Uses for Essential Oils That Will Blow Your Mind

*Digestive support
*Boost metabolism
*Clear breathing
*Cooking, cleaning, detox
*Healthy Skin
*Repel insects

I looked forward to my order arriving every month.  We started using vitamins, hair care, skin care, all the products were toxin free, high quality and creating a long last a wellness environment for me and my family.

About a year later, I was upstairs in my house — I still remember where I was standing —

and the Voice of Inspiration spoke to me and said, “Sell essential oils.”

“How?” I wondered, but I decided to take action on the prompting, even though I didn’t know the answer.

The next week I called my coaching clients and shared with them how much the oils had done for me and I offered them essential oil kit options along with coaching packages from me.

I enrolled about 25 people during the next few months and then simply went back to the world I knew–business coaching.

A few months later, checks were still rolling in from dōTERRA even though I wasn’t selling oils at the time.

First $100, then $200, then $400.  I called it “mad shoe money” back then because extra surprise spending money showed up in my mailbox each month.  When a $764 check arrived, I was so intrigued, I called my friend who had recently started the dōterra business to ask her what in the world was going on with this company.  She told me how fast the oil business was growing and how many people’s lives it was changing. I soon realized checks were coming to me because the people I had enrolled were still buying oils and recruiting other people.  They loved the products like I did — that was obvious.

I decided to give the business a try for two reasons.

The oils had done so much for me and I knew that it was going to work.  They had changed my life and I wanted to be involved in something that would do the same for others.  If other people loved them half as much as I did, they would keep buying.  Secondly, I wanted to be a part of a larger community. I had been in business for myself all this time and I worked hard–really hard for everything I had.  If I ever took time off, my income would stop immediately.  I craved support, help from a community, and a secure financial future I could count on.

Shortly after my commitment to build the business, I rose to the top ranks of the company and I never looked back.  In 2014, my husband David sold his dental practice and began to build dōTERRA with me as a joint partner and now my kids have both parents at home full time who build a life mission around our family and we’ve never been happier!

Today, this wellness community (a gift from God and the hands of so many others!) sells $25 million a year and reaches into 35 countries.

It all started when a single drop of orange oil lifted the weary spirits of a struggling woman.

Today, I am blown away by what the oils have done for me, my family and so many people we know.

That’s why I am so excited to share them with other people, and you’ll notice that I’ve been talking about them more and more right alongside my coaching programs, because they are a TOOL you can use to enhance every single aspect of life.  Plus, the purpose we have found in empowering other people’s lives brings us true fulfillment and we want to share that!

Every day we make an effort to express our gratitude for what we have and thank God for leading us here, because He knew the way.

He knew a drop of orange would lift the spirit of a silently struggling woman and I needed the oils for my healing journey.  He knew I’d follow the direction I had been given — sell the oils, even though I didn’t know how.  He knew mad shoe money would turn into a full time career for both me and my husband.

If you’re reading this and you’ve been struggling with emotional burdens, low energy or health issues, or you’ve been interested in oils, why don’t you send me an email and we can chat.

Who knows what might happen for you.
I can send you some info and samples and will be right there to take great care of you!

I’m so grateful to the person who sent me a box of oils several years ago and I want to be that person for others.

Huge, life changing journeys can often be traced back to a small starting point.

Hey, hey, I made this new VIDEO for you to give you not only HOPE, a clear baseline list  list of the must have things to make your goals happen!  If you have these three things, you can make it. (You really can, so stop doubting it all the time)

#3 may surprise you a little, and sometimes people are surprised to have a business coach talking about stuff like this, but it’s true, and deep down, I think people agree with it.

I Have All The Tools I Need To Succeed

p4

If you’re creating big goals, but you never seem to get there, try this…
Instead of changing your whole life in one day, try changing your life DAY by DAY, because small steps, over time, create huge results.

For example, you don’t have to quit your day job to write your book. Instead, create a one hour window each day and do the most productive things with the hour you have.

When you make something too big, you put psychological weight on it and people avoid things that feel heavy to them (even they we want what it contains.)

Yes, you do want an overall vision, but nearly all of your focus is going to be spent on the daily steps.

When I am coaching my team, I ask this question at the end of our sessions: “What’s your Top 3?”

The Top 3 are the MOST PRODUCTIVE next-step actions that are going to get them where they want to go.

We cover a lot of ground in our calls together and I want TOP 3 to be fresh in their brain, so right when they hang up the phone, they have laser focus on the most productive tasks first.

A healthy business (and a healthy life, body, marriage, anything…)
comes from executing the Right Steps, with High Efficiently, Over time.

So, if you want to eat healthier, you might not want to go full-fledged organic over the weekend and throw out all the bread. It’s too much.

Eating healthier begins with one single decision in the morning to choose an apple instead of a doughnut for breakfast.

That one small decision leads to a workout at the gym to keep it going.

You have absorbed the feeling of being “healthy” so you flow to the actions.

Small steps get you close to the FEELING of something.
The feeling of something gets you into the motions.

Some people believe that if they can’t pull out scriptures and read for 30 minutes in the morning, they’ve ruined their connection with God for the day.

But five deep grounding breaths can get you tuned in.
Hey, one half breath can do it if you’re really focused.

Sometimes we get the idea that we need these huge swaths of time for our goals, but what we need are small consistent swatches of attention.

EXPEDIENCE is a heavenly principle.

It means hitting the target.
It is doing the ‘exact amount’ with high accuracy.

If you never get around to doing what you want, maybe you made it too heavy.

Or you have planned to do more than is necessary.

Ask: What are the steps for *me* amount needed to accomplish this,
and just DO THAT.

My Space

p3

I’m obsessed with high vibe, beautiful, calm spaces that feel AMAZING to be in.

So, here’s “the couch” in my office and the place where I sit until I am in my highest self.

I literally won’t plan my day, train my team, make decisions, or resolve conflict until I’m in my “highest self.” It’s a time for reflection or maybe, on occasion, a time out for grown ups, haha!

Each of these numbers represents a purposeful thing that brings high energy, every element is created with a purpose

Love Your Space

12_12

Before I sit down to work, I have a juicy routine that gets me all energized and ready to play hard

Great Music
Walk outside or workout
Meditation
Essential oils
Organized space (usually)
Specific Intentions I’ve written out like “I reach all the people who need me” or
“I get 10 hours of benefit for every 1 hour I spend at work”

If I jump into the day unprepared, I totally feel it. Less is accomplished. What I create is boring and lifeless and things drag on.

More gets done when ENERGY is high.

How to Empower People

10how-to-empower-others

Stop trying to make or influence people’s life decisions FOR them. Instead …

1. ASK THEM: WHAT do you WANT?

After they identify it …

2. ASK: WHAT ARE ALL YOUR OPTIONS?

Let them list ALL the possibilities (and suggest some they might not see)

3. WHICH DO YOU FEEL IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Let the decision come from inside of them, with their own resources and innate power. If they need coaching, new ideas, more options, or help with blocks, OFFER it. But THEY MUST CHOOSE ON their own.

Once they decide…

4. ASK: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NEXT? and perhaps…WHAT SUPPORT WOULD YOU like FROM ME?

Say yes (or no!) to their specific requests. REQUIRE that they ASK directly and specifically for what they want with your involvement and do exactly (only) what you said you would do.

THIS IS A GREAT MODEL FOR EMPOWERING PEOPLE, rather than enabling them.

It’s Your Time

email1

A lot of people tell me they don’t feel qualified, or good enough, to follow their dream.

They want to write a book, but they don’t know if they have something valuable to say.
They want to start a business, but they don’t know if they;ll succeed.
They want to be a coach, but they didn’t get their degree, so they don’t feel qualified.

Because of their doubt, all these dreams get put on a shelf and saved for later and they won’t take them down until they have some guarantee they are good enough to succeed.

Nonsense.
Your head is sabotaging you.

If you have THESE 3 THINGS, You already have what you need to begin.

1. DESIRE–and that is key. (Keep reading, more on this below.)
2. A KNOWING INSIDE that this is right for you, (and it’s alright if there’s fear around it.)
3. WORK ETHIC to take the right steps and hopefully, you get aligned with someone who has a MAP to show you the way.

That’s it, sunshine. That’s all you need to have to begin.
But for the natural mind, it’s not enough to satisfy the demands of your ego.

The ego wants some kind of certainty that this is going to work out and in that request, we are deeply mistaken because we are asking for something we only qualify ourselves to receive ALONG the way.

I doubt there has been anyone who created anything on the planet — who started with the certainty that what they were about to do was going to work who did not face doubts if they were good enough to do it.

We don’t even need these things — that’s just your head trying to hurt you.

Here’s what you really need instead.

1. DESIRE to rev up the machine and 2. WORK ETHIC to take us to the next steps.

For example, the DESIRE to be a coach causes us to share it with a few people and work ethic tells us, yes, it’s time to follow up with them. We get one client. They only want to trade services, not pay us. But as we trade services with them, we see that they got some positive changes from spending time with us and we lap up that evidence as validation that YES, we are on the right track and it’s time to put it into higher gear.

So, we share our coaching service with more people, and oh my goodness, even put it out there on Facebook in front of God and everyone that WE — DO — COACHING — for MONEY (gasp, I hope my relatives aren’t reading this!) and then we sweat for the next few hours until, oh hey, someone has messaged us and wants to pay us $50.

That’s 50$ of evidence.
They get good results.
More evidence.
We get more clients.
More evidence.

A few thousand dollars and some success stories later, and we’ve not only got some certainty, but we’ve got LAYERS to our CERTAINTY (from the results) and now, you’ve got yourself a business.

Did you start with all that confidence? No.
You gathered it.

You get it along the way and that’s why I am telling you, that DESIRE is enough to start the gears and WORK ETHIC will take you to the next steps.

If you feel a desire inside to write a book– THE BOOK wants to be created by you.
If you hear music in your head, THE MUSIC wants to be written by you.

The fact that you feel it inside, means that it wants to be born into the world.
Things are created SPIRITUALLY, and then they manifest PHYSICALLY.

There are a lot of book ideas that haven’t come to anyone yet, because there is no place for them in the world yet.

THE FACT THAT YOU FEEL THE DESIRE, is ALL THE PERMISSION YOU NEED.
__________

I got really serious in business about 5 years ago.

Here was my resume at that time.
1. Mom of 4 kids (who were amazing when they came to us.)
2. College Drop out
3. No Work Experience

Wow, the job offers were just pouring in… (I just threw up in my mouth.)
I had ONE THING …. DESIRE.
Okay, two things. DESIRE and WORK. I was willing to work and work and work and fail and work and try something without even the slightest awareness that it would succeed for me.

It was enough.

I was too ignorant to calculate if it was going to succeed or not, and no one was more surprised than me when people started following me and buying my stuff.

In the past five years, thousands of people all over the world have attended my trainings, joined my doTERRA wellness community and and I’ve had a close look into many of their lives.

I can tell you from a LOT of observation ….
PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO MOVE WITHOUT a guarantee, are the ones succeeding.

They work with abandon. They throw themselves IN and they’ll take action waaaaay before they feel qualified. I love that.

The definition of “courage” is “ALL HEART IN.”

One of my favorite examples of this is PETER from the New Testament.

He’s passionate, and a tiny bit reckless. He’s lover and a fighter.
He’s the guy without a plan, but when His gut tells Him to go, he moves.

I love that when the guards came for Christ, he got so upset that he lopped off an ear.

Never you mind that he had been told this was going to happen and there was a group of surely 
armed men around him, no…he just felt the passion of protection and the sword went flying.

I love that he fell asleep when Christ asked Peter to wait wait with him. The single most important event
in the history of the world is occurring a stone’s throw away and Peter’s catching some zzzzz’s.

I love that he denied knowing his leader three times and wept over it and still went on to lead the Christian movement.

Peter acts–sometimes without thinking, and things still manage to work out for him.

He is the most relate-able apostle, the leader for the everyday man and woman.
One of my very favorite parts about Peter’s life happened just before Christ left him in charge.
Here’s what went down..

After their leader’s death, they prepared the body, laid him in the tomb and in no less 
than 3 days, Peter said, “I’m goin’ fishing.” Several others followed him.

Maybe the crew didn’t know they were going to carry on his mission after he left, but once He was gone, they scattered.

Back on the boat, they fished through the night and caught nothing.

In the morning, a man called to them and said, “Children, did you catch
 anything.”

They hadn’t. The man (whom they still didn’t recognize) instructed them to cast the net onto the right side of the boat and their net was soon bursting with the amphibious prize.

And then … the revelation.

It was their Leader.
Christ was there.

Upon hearing this, Peter did something very amazing …very cool and SO VERY … um, PETER.
He grabbed his coat (he was naked) and….

He threw himself into the sea.
I had two thoughts when I read this.

1. I didn’t know that people fished naked.

2. I LoooooVE PETER.

The guy is just pure heart.
He recognized his LORD, and nothing could hold him back, not even freezing cold morning sea water.
I’m thinking Peter could have traveled a little faster to Christ rowing the boat, rather than swimming.

But calculated thinking at that one particular moment would have held back his first impulse,
which was to MOVE

LOVE, DESIRE, PASSION, COMMITMENT — It moves us to action.

The plans and guarantees come later. I don’t know all the reasons why did Christ chose Peter lead the church, especially with so much human-ness he seemed to carry. But I have to believe that HEART was a part of it.

He had a huge calling ahead of him and the point of this whole thing is that HE — WAS — ALREADY — QUALIFIED.
He didn’t know that in the beginning, but he didn’t need to know it. He was going to have his refining experiences and the evidence would come later.

He would succeed at what he came to do. But he didn’t know that either.
The steps would be revealed.

He would actually die during his mission, but he certainly didn’t need to know that.
(Good thing, because that could really mess with your head.)

It seems to me that on our earth journeys we are operating on a ‘need to know’ protocol.
What do you “need to know’ to get started?

1. Do you have a DESIRE?
2. Do you feel you are pursuing the right path for you?
3. Do you have THE NEXT STEP. (not the whole map, just the next thing you are to do.)

If you do, you’re good to go baby, so, stop sweating it, and don’t over think everything ,
or you’ll be stuck on a boat forever waiting for the plan, when the most exciting adventure is waiting for you at sea.

Peter’s calling showed up, and he threw himself into it.

He succeeded–because he was willing to GO when it was time.
So…If you’re calling is here … how about you?

It’s your day to take a dive.
