In it for the Long Run…

People ask me all the time, “Do you sell essential oils?” Me…”No, I’m an essential oils educator. I educate and I share an opportunity.” For me this is key, I have a problem with “Selling” to my friends. I LOVE essential oils. I think every house should be using it. I’m definitely “That oil lady” but to me selling is not my focus. My focus is to help people be healthy, physically and emotionally first. Now if financial healing happens along the way woohoo!!!

This is not a “get rich quick” scheme, a pyramid scheme or any other kind of scheme. In fact there is no “Scheme” to it at all. It is network marketing, a legitimate business. In network marketing there is always the next goal, that next rank to achieve. Don’t get me wrong goals and ranks are a good thing. It is a way that I can measure how many families I’ve helped, how many lives I’ve been able to touch through this great business…but these goals are not MY goals or what we refer to as our “why.” For me, I am in the business of building relationships. Helping families heal. That is the most important thing to me. Along the way yes this did turn into a “business”, but I’ve noticed when I turn away from my “why” (Helping people heal) then my business fails. When I focus on the individual that I can help, the family in need then I am able to help them and my business at the same time.

Spending time working with essential oils and taking on new team members to mentor I have learned the importance of investing in the long run and making sure others do as well. Think of what you feed your body. If you invest in fresh fruit and veg now, which can cost more (financially and with your time), instead of an over processed meal, which is cheaper and faster, in the long run what will that cost you consistently? More than likely a few heart surgeries and the cost of your overall health and wellness. Now I’ll ask you what is more cost effective and a better use of time? Just like eating healthy (and exercise), this is a long term investment, in people, in health and in finances. There is really no way to go wrong. Unless you don’t go.

There’s a mountain of encouragement to keep you going. “I think I can, I think I can.” “Keep your chin up.” “Reach for the stars.” All of these are great but the one that sticks with me? “If you don’t quit, you win.” Just don’t quit. I don’t want to climb ranks and propel through an ever increasing trajectory but I do want to help people and I want to live a healthy life. I don’t think I want to quit that and I think that’s a pretty good “win.”

If you are interested in the long-term benefits of using essential oils or sharing essential oils, let me know! I am “that oil lady” and loving sharing my oils.

What could be better than that.
