I’ve been home for about a month now from the doTerra Dream Convention and I’ve been getting more questions about the company and what drew me to it.
So I thought I’d share some of my story the brought me to doTerra.
I spent over 25 years in the fitness industry as part of a franchise I loved. I was working hard. My body was breaking down and I was stressed and exhausted, and I was not making money.
Don’t get me wrong, I did love being on that stage and making sure that my customers felt better when they walked out, even if they felt pretty good when they arrived.
After a medical crisis, I knew it was time for a shift. I retired from owning my fitness business and was in ‘reinvention’ mode for about a year and a half.
It was during this time I was using dōTERRA essential oils, even sharing them with some family and friends, when I finally recognized the magnitude of this business opportunity.
I could STILL help people feel better, and even more exciting was that I could do it without trading dollars for hours AND I could make an impact in the world.
As I began to get to know dōTERRA, I discovered many aspects that resonated with me.
The Company. Founded in 2008 by experts in the Essential Oils business, there are no outside investors with dōTERRA – the owners personally funded the start-up and own 100% of the company. They took second mortgages and worked without pay to make their own choices early on. dōTERRA is now the largest oil company in the world, debt-free. They are also family focused and pro-woman.
The Humanitarian Efforts. Here’s where I get really excited. Being part of a larger mission has always been important to me. Healing Hands is dōTERRA’s non-profit, and it’s funded by members, employees and the executives. We have the option to donate each month on our monthly orders, and the company raises funds via events as well. Healing Hands has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and has created jobs and changed many lives in several countries.I could go on about this aspect for hours!
The Oils. Pure, high quality, optimally-sourced Oils are at the heart of dōTERRA’s success. Sourcing the Oils where they flourish, making sure the soil is primed, harvested at the perfect time, distilled for the ideal amount of time at the perfect temperature – this leads to a high quality Essential Oil. dōTERRA also has many exclusives with their growers, so their Oils are exceptional. Visit Source to You for extensive information on the sourcing and quality testing of doTERRA Oils.
The Quality. For transparent accountability, they’ve created an internal standard called Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG), verified by third party labs. The name is a trademark; the standard is real and concrete. Stringent testing happens throughout the whole process on EVERY liter. Learn more about the science of their practices of testing here. Oils failing these test are simply be rejected. They are aromatic extracts, nothing added, and nothing removed; they either meet that standard or they don’t.
The Education. On the site, you’ll find hundreds of hours of free education, guidance, recipes and other support for both oil users and those building businesses. Company-wide resources are supplemented by our team’s resources, and those who have businesses with dōTERRA are well supported. Product support of any kind is one email or knowledgable phone call away, detailed PDFs for each oil can be found at doterratools.com.
The Co-Impact Sourcing. dõTERRA searches the globe to find the best locations to grow the plants for each oil; they team up with local farmers whose families have been growing and harvesting that plant for generations. The company then forms cooperatives, teaching the farmers improved growing techniques, harvesting and distilling methods, and elevates their quality of life. Paying them above fair wages, dōTERRA often brings in the Healing Hands foundation to improve the community as a whole as well.
As we enjoy and share dōTERRA, we are providing thousands of jobs globally, changing families and blessing communities.
The people, the social aspect, and the connection. Every day I encounter new blessings in this business. I loved my career in fitness, and I also love switching on my business mind and empowering myself to reach past where I thought I could go, in order to cultivate a thriving organization. I love being surrounded by such heart centered souls who are on a mission to disrupt the healthcare system. I’ve made great friends, stretched my leadership abilities, and empowered other women (and an occasional man).
The world is in deep need of healing. Physically, emotionally, and yes, financially. And we’re just getting started.
THAT is why I choose dōTERRA.
I’m looking to connect with others who’d like to experience oils, host a class, or talk about the business opportunity, If that’s you, let’s chat.
It’s just that good.
