The doTERRA Opportunity Knocks…


What makes dōTERRA® essential oils the “gift of the earth” in so many ways is that not only can they soothe emotionally and mentally as well as support us physically, but being involved in promoting and marketing these amazing products can also heal financially – and that is why I am so grateful to fully partake in all of the benefits these gifts of the earth. When I was introduced to the company that we are associated with I went with it because I loved the products and the benefits they gave to me. So when I asked my friend if there was a business opportunity to share these products and she told me she did this full time and made $10,000 dollars a month after almost a year or so – I was like, “sign me up!!”  She has since become my mentor and my up-line leader and I love her for introducing me to this lifestyle and this amazing business opportunity.

A product I love and can easily share potentially make money sharing passionately? I was all in!!!!

Since then have been able to quit my J-O-B and to #RetireMyMan from his J-O-B and to work full time with him and other amazing family and friends and make really, really good money. This actually works and it is not a scam. I have been involved with other MLM companies that didn’t work for a variety of reasons (often too much up-front investment) but essential oils have worked for us and continue to work for tens of thousands of people. This is the real deal. The best part of this for me is that it has never really felt like “work.”

The most rewarding part of being a dōTERRA® Wellness Advocate is being able to share the benefits of the oils and supplements and introduce new solutions to minor emotional and physical issues of families and friends, and potentially to thousands of people you have yet to meet. There seems to be a 21 day period of people experiencing the oils and supplements and then calling and saying: “How do I share these?” We cannot wait to share these amazing oils with those we love and care for.

I remember how much of a difference they made for me, so I went to my mom’s house and said, “Here Mom, let’s get you sleeping naturally.” That is how it starts – easy peasy. 🙂

Many times I have had the incredible gift and satisfaction of seeing people find freedom in their health, conquering frustrating conditions and side effects and being able to find a happy and healthier life from these amazing dōTERRA® essential oils and related wellness products. After that satisfaction, being able see these products also make a financial difference for themselves and their families is doubly rewarding. When you begin sharing the oils you will get caught up in the very positive aspect and effect that you can have on the lives of people…and that is so rewarding. People will start seeking you out to find out if you have something for them as they hear testimonials that you do from those who have benefitted already.


Thankfully essential oils are not just a home remedy product where there is not a lot of earning potential, right?!? A good home business must have a good option for earnings. participating in promoting and sharing essential oils can truly give your finances either a little lift, a lot of extra breathing room, or a complete financial makeover like we and many others have experienced. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who is looking to make money while helping others. Essential Oils are the perfect solution with unique and effective products to also make money effectively. I have never had to sell anyone on any of these products. Essential Oils and other wellness products sell themselves…you just have to share the products and let people experience them! That is why it has been so effective and easy peasy. Are you ready to see some figures that show you how much you can and will be making when you join us? Heck yah!

doTERRA Rank Earnings for years 2011-2013

Now when I first saw the potential earnings I was like, “What?” “What is this all about?”

I did not understand the numbers and the possibilities. Well, let’s just say that after 6+ years…I GET IT!!! I really get it and it’s truly possible for this to happen to anyone, including you. I have seen these numbers affect so many people that I personally know and have developed powerful personal relationships with. These numbers are real as I have seen them affect so many people I know and love. I have seen women quit their part time and even full time jobs and husbands retire and join their wives booming businesses. I have seen single women become independently wealthy. I’ve even seen a few husbands and single men seize opportunity where they saw it and not only provide for themselves and their families, but become more successful than they had dreamed.

If you are looking for a Network Marketing, Direct Sales or Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) company that is rewarding then you have found the right place. Does that mean that there is not hard work to do? Not all at. I worked very hard to see success, but as I have already said, since I am sharing something that I love, something that I believe in, something that helps me, my family and others…it has never really seemed like “work” to me. It has been a joyous journey. It also helps immensely that the compensation plan is generous where it needs to be.

1st: You get a healthy 25% commission from all of your retail customers

2nd: A great Fast Start bonus paid weekly

3rd: You can reach some real compensation for your time through the “Power of 3″ Team Bonus

4th: You get paid the most where you have the most people in your structure

5th: You get access to company-wide profit sharing to build an amazing team



Fast start Bonuses

If you plan to get on the path to quickly increasing your earnings, Fast Start Bonuses are an excellent vehicle to keep you progressing toward your financial goals. The Fast Start bonus is designed to provide you, as an enrolling sponsor, immediate rewards for enrolling new Independent Wellness Advocates into your business organization by paying 20% on purchases and sales made within the new enrollee’s first 60 days. This bonus is paid weekly and applies three generations deep for the new enrollee’s first 60 days.


The Power of 3 Bonus

The Power of 3 Bonus is a monthly achievement bonus, as long as you achieve a certain structure for the month you qualify to receive $50, $250, or $1500.

olio-dotsThe Leadership or Diamond Bonus

The Leadership or Diamond Bonus is a monthly achievement bonus, as long as you achieve a rank by having a qualifying volume or teams, you receive a share of the company’s total monthly sales. 2% of monthly sales is shared with all the qualifying Silver, Gold, and Platinum ranked wellness advocates. 4% of monthly sales is shared with qualifying Diamonds, Blue Diamonds, and Presidential Diamonds. In the past few years the Leadership Bonus is between $130-150 on average per share.

Qualifying Silvers receive 1 Share or $130-150. Qualifying Golds receive 5 shares or $750 average. Qualifying Platinums receive 10 shares or $1500 on average. There are opportunities to qualify for more shares. Diamonds receive an average of $4000 bonus. Blue Diamonds get an $11,000 bonus and Presidential Diamonds a $30,000 bonus.


Unilevel Commission

Unilevel Commission is where the bulk of your compensation is in the long run. Our Unilevel commission is 85% of our check, which is now pretty substantial if you look at a Presidential Diamond pay out. The Power of 3 Bonus and the Leadership/Diamond Bonus are bonuses or money added to your monthly for good performance. Although $1500 or $4000 bonus sounds exciting what’s even more exciting is the 2% to 7% commission you receive on repeat orders in your organization. That might not seem exciting at first. On a $100 order, that’s either anywhere between $2 and $7 commission, but as your organization grows to thousands of people, it really adds up.

The essential oil company that we are associated with also has a charitable foundation that is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving lives through partnering with organizations that offer hope to millions around the world. This organization seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of afflictions and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. The company provides for all overhead and administrative costs of their charity, ensuring that 100 percent of all donations go directly to those receiving aid. They have done and continue to do amazing charitable work around the world, and we often have the opportunity to travel and participate in blessing the lives of others.

We have had the amazing opportunity because of this charitable organization to participate in service projects in both Africa and Guatemala. It was AWESOME and something I can only hope that more people could take advantage of! We love the service trips and partaking in these experiences.


There are six key elements you should look at when selecting a Direct Sale / Multi-Level Marketing company. Below were and are my six reasons for joining the essential oil company that we are associated with (and BTW so many other people that I talk with agree with these criteria):



How old is the company? 7 plus years young. When I was introduced to our essential oil company it was over 6 years ago and I was like “wow, this is new – let’s do this!” I talk to people who think they have missed the boat but we are just starting to hit that growth of being the largest Essential Oil and Wellness company in the world…we are going strong.


Excellent Products:

You want consumable products that people will use and need frequently. This is us for sure. The average retention rate in the industry is around 15%-20%. A good organization may have a 35% retention rate and very few have any higher of a retention rate. Our essential oil company has a phenomenal retention rate of 84%!! That means that 84% of the people that initially buy a product make another purchase in less than three months. THAT IS AMAZING!

olio-dotsHow is the pay plan?

How even and fair and generous overall is the distribution? This is really crucial as the pay plan represents exactly how you’ll get paid – or not get paid. There are really only two questions to ask: First, how many pennies out of each sales dollar get paid back to the independent distributors each month, and how fair is the distribution of those pennies between the old members and the new members?


Integrity of the company and the management:

You need to look at the experience of the CEO and the executive leadership team. What experience do they have in the industry? What is their background and education? Why did they start the company?

What is their plan for the future? Do they possess integrity, honesty and a solid sense of not only the business aspects of the industry but of their role in society and humanity?


Momentum & Timing:

Look at where the company is at, what is going on with the company, if it is growing and where it is going.


Support, Training & Building Systems:

You may have chosen a great company with excellent management and products that make a difference, a pay plan that’s uniquely fair and very generous, with momentum and stability…but if you don’t have an outstanding support system in place that works, all that doesn’t matter.

If you would love to be the source of joy, healing And relief for others in their lives-if you have thought you would like to make a difference in the world and you love to make others happy and help people in important ways, then you simply must try doing Essential Oils and Wellness Products as a business!!

Please contact us to find out more about the company that we work with and their products.  We would love to meet with you, or have one of the many leaders on our team located throughout the world meet with you!
