Are You Sick & Tired Of Living Life On The Hamster Wheel?
You know it's possible to have more in your business.
And you're absolutely, 100% right.
You don't mess around ... that's why you decided to start your own business.
You're one of those women who refuses to settle for average.
You don't want an average job that sucks your soul dry, you want to follow your passion.
Whether you're a Nutritionist (like me!), or another type of professional, you just want to help people.
So you started your own business.
But it's not what you thought it would be and now that business is getting in the way of you doing your passion.
You're burned out, barely making enough money to pay for your green juice, and your passion is gone, but you don't want to pack it all in and give up!
And you don't have too.
You know that you were meant for greater things but haven't quite figured out what that is yet.
You're totally over your corporate job with a boss that's driving you crazy. You're afraid to ask for a raise or have zero desire to sit through a performance appraisal where others told you what you're worth. No matter how many hours you work you don’t feel appreciated and all the kids want is you at home everyday when they come home from school (oh the guilt).
You're sick and tired of rat race that has become you're life. This is not what you had imaged family life to be. You spend more and more time working more, all to get more and more money .... but it's not enough anymore. You want freedom, you want control over you're life and you're schedule.
You know you have more to bring into this world but that soul crushing corporate job is sucking you dry of every inch of life you have. You dream of having your own business or maybe you already have your own biz but you're struggling to pay the bills and it's not exactly what you thought it would be; getting new clients is challenging, you're constantly on the hustle.
You have a strong desire to teach, show and lead people down the road to better health and better wealth.
Design your own life, by your own rules.
Everyone says you should be grateful for what you have. You know you've been blessed but somehow you don't feel it.
You followed the rules. You worked your butt off to get into college. You got a good old reliable 9 to 5. But you're burnt out. Between the growing demands of your 'career' and the growing demands of your growing family pleasing everyone seems nigh impossible.
You're frustrated, exhausted and have no idea how you got here.
Create a life you love
Imagine working for 5 hours a day from your laptop while sitting on the couch in your yoga pants then picking the kids up from school every day.
Imagine taking the time to actually make that green juice every morning and sitting down to enjoy it!
Imagine not rushing the kids to bed every night so that you can start making lunches and dinner for the next day because you know you'll have time tomorrow. And going for your daily lunchtime yoga class before meeting with friends......guilt free.
Imagine having the freedom to do all the things you love, while giving your family what they need and growing your own business.
It is possible to touch the lives of many all while taking care of your own family, doing true self-care for yourself and grow a business at the same time.

Click on the FAQ's below to cover the basics:
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A MINIMUM ORDER?
Hell no, there’s no requirement to spend thousands of dollars on your first oils collection! As long as you pay for a yearly membership, you are all set up to order oils and do the business. That being said, you need to love the oils to authentically share them, so of course you should purchase the starter kit that best fits you and your families needs.
IS DOTERRA A “PYRAMID SCHEME”?
Don’t laugh, it’s a legitimate question! Sometime in the last 20 years, Network Marketing (NM) became synonymous with a pyramid scheme. While there are companies doing totally illegal and shady things, a pyramid scheme is where a company collects money but there’s no actual product received by the customer. Since you’re receiving essential oils and other wellness products with each order, by definition, doTERRA isn’t a pyramid scheme.
This question has more to do with the prevailing feeling that NM is icky, and to be honest, I believed that for a long time, too. There weren’t many people more jaded with the NM industry than I was when I first started using the oils. In fact, for the entire first year of my business, I still couldn’t ‘believe I was “doing network marketing”. But over time, as I shared authentically and without being pushy, and as more and more customers thanked me for introducing them to this fabulous company, I started believing in this model of business more and more.
Today, the power of network marketing and residual income has allowed me to start taking care of myself, my body, and my family in a way that I’ve never been able to do before, and I’m eternally grateful.
doTERRA has amazing products that most of us can’t help but want to share, and when you’re sharing something that you 1,000% believe in, it never feels icky. That’s why it’s so important to start by using and loving the oils yourself! If you never believe in them, chances are you will never be truly successful with a doTERRA business.
HOW FAST WILL I START MAKING A PROFIT?
This answer is different for everyone. Some people start fast out of the gates, and some are slower builds. Your pace and effort is entirely up to you!
The fastest way to earn commissions is with the Fast Start bonus, which you’re eligible to be paid the week immediately after you start your doTERRA business! doTERRA knows that you don’t want to wait forever to see results from your hard work, and that’s what this bonus was designed for. This keeps you cash positive while the more stable parts of your commission (the Unilevel Bonus) grows and flourishes.
Don’t worry if this all sounds like a foreign language. Rest assured that there are commissions in place to help you be profitable within weeks of starting.
Just click here if you want to learn more about the doTERRA compemsation plan.
WHAT’S “RESIDUAL INCOME” AND WHY IS DOTERRA’S COMPENSATION PLAN BETTER THAN OTHER COMPANIES?
Oh, residual income: I’ve fought you my entire life, and now I love you more than words can say. What the heck does that even mean? Well, you have to understand my story and that I’m a workaholic. Ahem, a recovering workaholic. I used to think that to make more and more money, I’d have to work harder and harder. And harder.
Over the years, this has caused me nothing but heartache, total physical burnout, more than a few fights with my husband, and constantly rushing my kids through life so that I could have a few extra minutes to answer messages on my phone. Typing that last sentence hurts.
I didn’t feel worthy of abundance merely for being me, I thought that I had to earn it. And by earn it, I mean pay dearly for it with my sanity and presence. However, over the last few months this has all changed.
Now I'm asking myself some questions like:
-What if I only worked 6 hours while the kids are at school, instead of working 8 hours just because that’s what everyone else does? Except Sweden, they just introduced the 6 hour work day. They know where it’s at! -What if I took a few days off in the middle of a random week to recharge my battery … and that actually helped my business because I was more focused on the other side? -What if I was able to design my work days around when I’m most productive, doing the things that I’m most genius at, and hire someone to help me with the rest?
Essentially, reducing the number of hours I’m “working” (in the traditional sense), yet my business keeps growing.
That’s the power of residual income.
Why can you do this in doTERRA and not many other companies? doTERRA has one of the highest retention rates in the network marketing industry, at 65%. This means that 65% of all your customers will still be buying from you on a regular basis a year from now.
The industry average is about 10-15%, which means that in doTERRA, you have 5 times the chance of creating customers for life, meaning people are 5 times more likely to continue purchasing from you. And 5 times the amount of repeat customers, compounded year over year, means that your Unilevel cheque (the most stable part, remember?) will continue to grow without having to hustle to find more and more new customers for eternity.
If you’re ready to explore a new way of earning money, one that creates true wealth with time and financial freedom, doTERRA is one of the best ways to do it with the least amount of risk.
DO I HAVE TO DO REGULAR MONTHLY ORDERS?
Yes. In order to receive commissions, you have to place a 100 PV order (PV = point value = about $1 US) each month through the Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP).
The LRP program is a customized monthly order with your personal products you need to build and maintain your own health. You purchase your wellness products, like doTERRA’s 100% certified pure essential oils, life-changing LifeLong Vitality supplements (their #1 selling product), toothpaste, non-toxic skin care and cleaning products, and have them delivered to your house each month, and in exchange you get 10-30% points back to spend on more wellness products. It’s like Air Miles on steroids.
Consider the costs of starting a traditional bricks-and-mortar business, where you have to spend thousands (or hundreds of thousands) on a building or office, inventory, furniture + accessories, and hired help. Spending $100 a month on products that you’d use anyways, like skincare, household cleaners, and toothpaste, feels like a steal!
HOW DO YOU MAKE MONEY IN DOTERRA?
There are technically 5 ways of getting paid with doTERRA, which I’m not going to overload you with every single detail now (that just leads to analysis paralysis, right?).
That being said, there are a few things I want you to know:
-If I were to consider starting my doTERRA business all over again, I would want to read doTERRA’s Build Guide. You can access this guide for free by clicking here. -On Page 7 of the Build Guide, it shows you the 4 main ways of generating commissions with doTERRA, along with average amounts at each rank. -doTERRA’s full compensation plan can be found by clicking here. If it looks complicated, that’s because it can be! Understanding the strengths of this plan will happen over your first few months as you start to navigate your doTERRA business.
To sum it up:
1 . Fast Start Bonus - This is the fastest path to cash when you’re first starting! When you introduce anyone to doTERRA with a wholesale account (99% of customers choose to buy this way), you receive 20% commissions within a week of their purchase, along with 20% of anything else they purchase within their first 60 days of joining. As your customers decide to share these oils with their friends and family, you’ll also get 10% of whatever they share, and another 5% when that network also expands. Click here for more info.
Benefits: This helps you become cash positive super quickly, and provides motivation and cash flow as the more stables parts of your commissions grow.
2 . Power of 3 Team Bonus - This bonus is rewarded to those who help others see the power of investing in their health on a regular basis. Bonuses are paid out when you help at least 3 people in setting up a monthly LRP order of at least 100 PV (about $100 US). Click here for more info.
Benefits: This helps you solidify positive cash flow when you’re first starting, at least enough to cover your own personal monthly LRP orders required for commissions. Long-term, this helps you to build structurally towards higher ranks, leading to Leadership Bonuses.
3 . Unilevel Bonus - After 60 days, whenever a customer places an order, you’ll be paid anywhere from 2-7% of those orders. This might not seem like a lot in the beginning (and it’s not!), but as your customer numbers grow, this can turn into 2-7% of thousands of people’s orders! This bonus takes longer to build, but it’s also the most stable part of your monthly cheques. My first Unilevel Bonus was $13.38 US, and 3 years later it’s now almost $6,000 US per month.
Benefits: This is your true residual income, and is representative of the number of customers on your team ordering on a regular basis. If you were to walk away from your business entirely but continue placing your qualifying orders for commissions, this bonus will remain stable for years, if not the rest of your life.
4 . Leadership Bonus - When you reach the rank of Silver and higher, you start getting paid extra bonuses! This bonus starts around $150 US per month at Silver, increasing to about $1,500 US per month at Platinum, and upwards of $3,000 US per month at Diamond.
Benefits: This bonus is paid only to those who have stepped up to becoming a true leader through consistent action. You are also rewarded extra bonuses when you help other people grow their own doTERRA businesses. In doTERRA, it’s true when they say “a rising tide raises all ships”. The more you help others grow their business, the more you get back in terms of team growth and commissions. How sweet is that?

WHAT’S THE REAL EARNING POTENTIAL?
Every few years, doTERRA releases their Earnings Disclosure which includes the average income at each rank. Click here to see their latest version.
Know that if you build your doTERRA business quickly, you might not achieve those averages at those specific ranks right away. Personally, I find that it takes about 6 months of staying at a particular rank to approach the doTERRA average.
THERE ARE SO MANY ESSENTIAL OIL COMPANIES WHO SAY THEY’RE THE BEST. HOW IS DOTERRA ANY DIFFERENT?
Now this is a topic that I could go on forever about and get sort of ranty. Yes, I’m that passionate about it. So here’s my two cents on why doTERRA is the ultimate vehicle to a level of health and financial abundance that you never thought possible:
1 . Quality: doTERRA is the ONLY essential oil in the world who does testing on every single batch of essential oils that is sold AND chooses to share that testing with everyone in the world. For instance, if you click here to go to their Source to You website and enter the lot number for my latest bottle of Tea Tree (aka Melaleuca) as 162658A, you will see that it has been verified by a 3rd party lab as being pure with no chemical adulteration or contamination. Click on the "Test Results" image if you can't see the GCMS results.
Many other companies will say that they are transparent with testing, but when you click on their reports, they are usually from a few years ago and from 1-2 batches.
doTERRA is the only company in the world who releases the testing for all their batches, and this is why research universities and hospitals (Duke University and Johns Hopkins University Hospital in particular) have chosen to partner with doTERRA. When doing scientific studies that are going to be submitted to journals for publication, it's imperative that you control everything in the lab as to show that the results are do to a certain mechanism, and no with impurities or changes in the input.
I'm the sort of person who looks up all my personal care products on the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Database and does my own research on things I'm going to use on my family and recommend in my business. My health and reputation depends on this! doTERRA is the only essential oils company who is transparent enough to the public that I can recommend.
2 . Sourcing: doTERRA chooses to source their raw plant materials from the areas of the world where that plant grows best worldwide. When you take a plant out of its native environment, you change the compounds that plant produces in response to its environment, and these are the compounds that make up the essential oil.
For example, doTERRA could easily source their lemons from Mexico, central America, or even the US, but they choose to source their lemons (and bergamot, FYI) from Sicily, which is where some of the oldest lemon trees grow in the world.
Their Tea Tree is sourced in Australia from the original farm where all modern cultivated Tea Tree plants were propagated from.
The farmers are usually multi-generational farmers of that particular plant, and know their soil, climate, and plants intimately.
In some circumstances, doTERRA has introduced essential oil product back into a region where it's no longer being done due to economic reasons, like with their Petitgrain production in Paraguay, along with their decision to move their Lavender production in Bulgaria along with their roman chamomile and Melissa.
Click here for a video on Petitgrain and how doTERRA is working to revive a collapsed industry for these rural farmers.
Click here for a video on Lemon and Bergamot.
As a Nutritionist, I know that where you get your plants from matters. Eating an organic apple from New Zealand is not the same as eating a local apple that was picked a few days ago. The nutrients are different, and the beneficial compounds are different.
With doTERRA, I feel like I'm using the equivalent of local and organic produce that has been distilled into an essential oil.
3 . Philanthropic work: This is an extension of the way doTERRA chooses to source their products, with over half of their oils coming from developing countries. These farmers, in a lot of cases, don't have running water (sometimes walking up to 3 hours one way for drinkable water), medical clinics, or schools.
In some of these countries, women are deemed less-than-worthy because of their monthly cycles, and are shamed in their communities and not allowed to continue with their schooling.
doTERRA's Healing Hands works directly with their farmers to help them have access to basic needs that you and I take for granted, and help them build basic infrastructure that is life changing.
In Nepal, the earthquake of 2015 was devastating. Of the 3 schools that have been rebuilt in the following 2 years, doTERRA has built 2 of them (and they are earthquake related in case it happens again).
In Somalia at this time, they are experiencing a horrible drought that is killing their main export: goats. Their 2nd biggest export is frankincense, of which doTERRA controls 80% of. doTERRA has put a stop to harvesting of frankincense for the next 2 years to let the trees rest (or else they might die due to overharvesting when they're already stressed from drought), but doTERRA is continuing to pay these farmers for the next 2 years, or else they wouldn't survive.
4 . Culture and Executives: doTERRA's executives came to the company with many years and/or decades of experience in either the essential oils science side and/or the business side of network marketing. There are 7 founding executives who work as a team to make decisions that are best for the company and their mission to improve the health of their customers, but also to leave a healthy and lasting mark on the communities that they source their oils from.
If you Google doTERRA's executives, you will find that they have won State and National awards for their work, while they were at doTERRA and before they joined.
doTERRA will never tear down another company, in fact, they have asked several other labs to take down testing from other companies that showed they adulterated their oils, for the sake of the industry as a whole.
Our wellness advocates and customers stand in the confidence of doTERRA's products without having to resort to attacks, smear campaigns, or litigation.
In the business, we all work together across multiple teams to lift the company as a whole, and competition is very rare.
In closing, I've never come across a company with such heart. I was VERY skeptical when I first joined doTERRA (I said that I would never do the business) and looked at them with a fine-toothed comb. I would never trust my essential oils to another company, in terms of what they do for this planet, the global economy and sustainability, and my mission as a Holistic Nutritionist to help make our world a healthier place.
