Why Build a dŌterra Business?
Have you already started one? Starting and running your own business can have its’ challenges. In order to help you hit the ground running, we have put together a few hints and tips to help get the most out of your dōTERRA experience!
But first... Let me ask you a simple question:
Do you want to be hauling buckets your whole life OR would you rather build a Pipeline?
The best analogy is the pipeline parable/metaphor. To illustrate what residual income is and how it works, many business mentors in dōTERRA use a “Building a Pipeline” metaphor or parable. The parable basically tells a story about a man who hauls buckets of water from a water source to his village. He sells the water to earn a living. He then comes up with another plan, to build a pipeline from the water source to the village. When he completes the pipeline, he then earns residual income on all his efforts to build the pipeline. This parable of hauling buckets vs. building a pipeline is a metaphor of traditional employment vs. authentic network marketing. I've simply chosen to build a pipeline (working at my dŌTERRA Business in the early years because I know what this residual income will mean for our family).
Tip 1. BE CLEAR ABOUT YOUR GOAL – YOUR WHY
Perhaps the most crucial component of starting your own dōTERRA business, is to remember the reason you started your journey with us – YOUR ‘WHY’. You need to be clear on what you are trying to achieve. You need to be CLEAR on your GOAL! Be it showing others the way to health and wellness using the oils, or building your own dōTERRA empire, your ‘WHY’ needs to be clearly defined in your mind, so that it can guide your decisions!
Staying clear about your ‘WHY’, allows you to hold yourself accountable for your decisions. Sharing your ‘WHY’ with those around you helps you keep your eye on the prize! Bringing your loved ones on the journey with you help keep the goal prominent in your mind.
Tip 2. DON’T BE TOO HARD ON YOURSELF
Embarking on any new journey is tough! It is important that you are not too hard on yourself, and that if anything does go wrong; you get back up and start again! One of the most amazing things about dōTERRA is the support network you have access to. Remember to connect with other Wellness Advocates, and corporate staff to provide you with advice and guidance in a tricky situation.
Tip 3. FORGE YOUR OWN JOURNEY
What can you do to give your dōTERRA business a competitive edge? When running any successful business, it is important to stand out, and make your point of difference known! Challenge yourself to think about how you can put your own spin on running your dōTERRA business. How can you forge a different journey?
Staying true to your ‘WHY’ and brings you back to why you are on this journey, helping to drive your success. So be clear about your ‘WHY’, your goals, don’t be too hard on yourself and give yourself that little competitive edge!
Not only have essential oils helped my family physically and emotionally, but I have paved the way to residual income by authentically sharing these oils with others. Panicking about leaving my job as a full-time teacher and about having kids in the future, I started sharing the oils with others and I now have a team with hundreds of people who share the same passion to live a healthy and happy life. I’m honoured that I get to help turn their dreams into a reality.
Running my own business gives me the freedom to work from home and choose how my days are spent. I love spending time at home with our bunny rabbits, and for me, this is a reflection of the type of life I want to live when we have kids. I love to wake up early and work on resources to help my community learn more about the power of these oils and resources to help my team build their dreams, and Nick and I spend quality time together always. We choose to run our local market stall because we love connecting with people in our community. My lifestyle is a great example of how you can live the life you want.
This is not your average product based business – where you host a couple of parties and earn a few dollars along the way. This business allows you the opportunity to completely multiply and replace your income. The best part of this business model is that there are no pushy sales. My business is purely formed with authentic connections made by helping others with flow and ease – I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m grateful for these natural health tools and the business that will allow me to be a stay at home mum and to create a life I love instead of being a slave to the nine to five. All whilst creating a solid, residual income for my family. I’ve found a path that has given me such purpose, and allowed me to share something that I am so deeply passionate about; empowering others to improve their health and wellness naturally.
We all come into dOTERRA inexperienced and totally unaware of how this style of business works but we DO know how to care for and help other humans. That's in our DNA.
We crave connection, community and collaboration. The human race has always existed in tribes. We're not solo living creatures. We need affection and love to thrive.
And that's what you create when you build a business with dOTERRA, you create a community of like minded people to collaborate with and you connect with those that need our help the most and are always seeking a new way of living.
This business doesn't work unless we all help each other. It's not just about our personal dreams, it's about the dreams of our tribe. We work to make them a reality by collaborating, connecting and thriving upon each other!
This is a great analogy of how I see this business- we lift each other up. As each of us rise, it's our responsibility to make sure that everyone around us rises with us. That's an incredibly beautiful way to do business don't you think? We've done away with the competitive, cut throat approach of succeeding at the cost of everyone else's success and instead replaced it with community and having each other’s back.
dOTERRA itself is a company of great integrity, heart and soul, innovation and community. It actively seeks out communities around the world that are desperately seeking help to simply survive, let alone thrive.
When you become a part of dOTERRA, you become a part of something much bigger than yourself. If philanthropy and humanitarian work is something that really gets your juices flowing..... you're in the right place I promise.
You don't need any skills but that of common sense and a self starting attitude to do this. If you are a mum, a yogi, a corporate worker, unemployed, on disability benefits, a teacher.....you can do this! Anyone can do this!!
I can't wait to introduce you to our world. One that's breaking the paradigm and creating a new normal for so many people who are just prepared to be brave.
I am calling the souls that know they want to live a life less ordinary, that want to escape the rat race, that want to pull the blinkers off and live a high vibe life, that are driven, self motivated peep's who adore connecting with others and can cast a vision for themselves that is well.....nothing short of incredible.
