Why start your own Young Living Business?
Discovering and using Young Living essential oils in my home has been a game changer.
I’ve reduced the number of chemicals my family is exposed to and we are living a healthier lifestyle. Young Living is so much more than essential oils. Essential oils, supplements and makeup are just a few of the Young Living products I share information about with friends, family and readers at TheHotMessKitchen.com.
Building an essential oils business was not something I had in mind when purchasing my first starter kit with Young Living. I had other essential oil brands already in my home but was curious to see what difference the Young Living oils had to offer.
I wanted to get the oils in my home, try them out and see what the difference was for myself. I could not be truthful in sharing something with friends and family until I had tried it….
so that is what I did.
I purchased a basic starter kit for $45 to get the oils in my home. I started using the oils, asking lots of questions and reading just about everything I could find on Young Living! Education is key.
And then one day a friend asked me to talk to them a bit about essential oils. Having used the oils I found it was easy to show and tell them about Young Living. One friend turned in to two friends and two friends then turned in to four. The number of people asking for more information is what caught the attention of my sponsor so she stopped me and said, “Sarah, would a side income from sharing oils be something you would be interested in?”.
The answer was YES but…
- I don’t know anything about building a business.
- I don’t have time & money to spend on something like this right now.
- What if this is not my path and I change my mind?
- I do better when someone else is in charge.
- Will others see the value in Young Living like I do?
She stopped me in my rant of 100 reasons to not start a business and gave me 4 reasons to start a Young Living business.
- Training and Incentive Programs
- Low Startup Costs
- 30 Day Return Policy
- Quality Products That Are Easy To Share
Do you know how I am building my own essential oils business today with Young Living?
Example 1: I made a peppermint brownie recipe using Peppermint Vitality and snapped a picture to share on Instagram. 2 people asked for the recipe and where to get the oils from.
Example 2: One day while working my tummy was getting the better of me so I rubbed some DiGize on it. I shared on Facebook that my day started out a bit rough with a stomach ache but I was able to stay at work because DiGize helped to support my digestive system. Another friend sent a PM asking for more information on supporting her children’s digestive health with DiGize.
Example 3: I wanted to make my home smell like “fall” but without using an artificial scent. I grabbed my clove, orange and Thieves essential oils, put them in the diffuser and let it run in the living room. A friend came over and asked where the wonderful smell was coming from. I showed her my diffuser, we talked about the oils and I sent her home with a sample.
Example 4: I cleaned an entire refrigerator using Thieves Household Cleaner. I setup my cell phone to record and made a video to share. I highlighted the cleaning power of Thieves Household Cleaner to show other people how that product works. Check out the video here.
What I am not doing:
- I am not hoarding a large inventory product in my home to sell.
- I am not having to pay out-of-pocket for something that I have to flip and sell online.
- I am not stressed about having a quota to meet or a sales deadline.
I am simply using the products, sharing my experiences and telling other people how they can do the same for themselves.
So my question to you is…
Does this business model sound like something you can do? Can you commit to trying the oils and sharing your experiences?
