I love business. I have always enjoyed working with other humans to create something whether it’s tangible or intangible. I live to create.
The idea that I can do business ethically and use my business a vehicle to serve others and my family excites me. We are here for a limited time and there is so much need. We have to look beyond ourselves. I am creating a legacy for my children and want to live an extraordinary life.
In a conventional business model there are boundaries. A boundary consisting of what the actual work is, the location of it and time spent on it. A design business will always look and act like a design business. You can add on a few bells and whistles but it needs to function in a certain way and meet certain criteria to be a design business.
With network marketing I have discovered that there are no boundaries. And that is exhilarating. I can make this anything I like and I create the type of business I want. The type of work and how I do it, the location and the time I spend on it are completely up to me.
If you want a design business you need certain things. A degree in design is helpful, you need to be good at design and have a network of clients who will give you projects. You need an ability to transfer what’s in your head to paper or a computer program. And you need at least $10k to set yourself up.
With dōTERRA it can cost you as little as $40 to set yourself up with an account. I can’t use other networking companies as an example here as I only know dōTERRA, and only plan to know dōTERRA, as I am not a “network marketing professional”. I am someone who fell in love with essential oils and discovered a business.
So, $40 is all you need to spend initially. I would recommend you add some oils of course but actually that’s what it costs to open a wholesale account!
Then your monthly overheads are around about $200, for a 100PV monthly order. My design company overheads were about $1,500 a month and that’s a laughable amount, if I had offices and staff that would be tens of thousands of dollars a month.
$200 a month to run your business. Let that sink in for a moment.
Oh, and it’s a debt free business. DEBT-free. No overdraft, no loan, no lease obligations. If I decided to wrap Oiltribe up tomorrow, I would walk away not owing a single person one red cent. What does that mean? It means a business model with zero-risk.
You can run a dōTERRA business alongside your commitment to be a stay-at-home mother. You can run a dōTERRA business alongside your other business be it medicine, law, hairdressing, therapeutic massage or design.
You can be a blogger, writer, traveller AND have a dōTERRA business. You can have a dōTERRA business that stands alone as your sole business. You can write a book, have a podcasting series, and create amazing oily accessories without impacting your dōTERRA business. It is what you make it.
There is so much misinformation and BS floating around out there about network marketing. Make no mistake; there are people who do network marketing very badly. But the thing to understand is that there are people in every industry who do things badly. I have met some designers who needed their degrees revoked in my time; their design skills and people skills were horrendous.
We need to get off our high horses about network marketing. If you are in business you are selling something. If you are not then you may have to ask yourself if you are in business at all.
My design business and my dōTERRA business could not compare. With one there was stress and boundaries. With the other, the stress does not even feature and it’s limitless.
I have crafted my life. Truly made it what it is. I have massive goals and I am not there yet but I will be. And in the meantime I am living a handcrafted and extraordinary life.
For me that means I am available for my children before and after school. I am able to adapt my workday to suit me and what I want to do. I am part of something so much bigger than myself that impacts this world in a massive way. I can write and create and call it “work”. I am living my dream of building a wellness community that will bring freedom to people.
I am living an extraordinary life. How about you?
If you have a dōTERRA business, believe in it and yourself. It’s a beautiful thing.
If you don’t have a dōTERRA business and you want one, I can take you where you want to be. I know business and I love it.
