Once upon a time, I had a toddler and newborn baby and my husband came home to me “playing” on the computer while the toddler played and I bounced the baby in the bouncy chair. When he asked me what I was doing, I told him I was starting a blog.
I wasn’t sure what that meant or what exactly I was doing or even why. Looking back, I can see that I was searching for some sort of identity outside of being a mom–something that was just for me.
I had quit my job as a teacher and was home all day with a newborn and toddler and I felt this indescribable pull to start something. I had no idea that the something would turn into a blog with over a hundred thousands pageviews a month, a large social media following, a 20,000 person email list, our own products for sale, amazing sponsored campaigns, trips and other blogger perks and thousands and thousands of dollars that made living on “one income” possible.
I have brought home more money blogging from home than I would have teaching full-time. It has been the most incredible gift I have ever given myself or my family. Because aside from all the material things, I have grown as a person. I have learned new skills and pushed outside of my comfort zone. I have met incredible people and formed amazing friendships.
Next month Fiona, my fourth and final baby, turns one. My husband and I started talking about the future and what that looks like for our family. I have had so many restless nights trying to figure out where my path should lead. What I have learned is that I really enjoy working for myself. I enjoy flexibility and control over my time, my schedule and my priorities.
I flew to Utah and toured DoTerra without ever having used a single essential oil in my life! I came back so incredibly impressed by the company and the ethics and I had a goodie bag of oils. Over the last few weeks we have used oils daily on everyone in our family. They have become a household necessity. My children feel empowered and it is incredible to watch.
I have spent countless hours reading anything and everything about essential oils. I will be heading to the DoTerra One convention next week. In a matter of weeks, essential oils became a passion of mine. It seems that is the way they work. People use them and then are blown away by the results, can’t stop talking about them or buying them.
Essential oils are safe, effective, natural and affordable. They don’t have the side effects of traditional medication, issues with addiction, etc. They work, they work quickly and sometimes they work better than anything else you can find.
When you have young children, like me, there often isn’t anything available for things like congestion, etc. My family has been congested, coughing, etc and a drop of lemon, peppermint and lavender rubbed on the chest has stopped the cough and helped them get a good night rest. It is incredibly empowering as a mother to have safe and natural solutions for my family. It is also empowering to my children to take control of their health and wellness.
DoTerra essential oils are pure, nothing added or taken away. To get these oils, they use an incredible model called co-impact sourcing.
Cō-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. dōTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity.
These pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils come out to pennies to the drop, making them an affordable option to take care of your family.
My mission is to empower families and there are two really awesome ways I get to do that. The first, is by sharing oils with you. Think of your three top health concerns for you and your family and reach out to me so we can come up with a plan for you.
Starting with oils is easy, because when you enroll with me, I will personally mail you, The Essential Life. This book is my go-to essential oil resource. Visit my wellness advocate page and click the join & save tab to get wholesale prices and to be able to start earning product credits back on your purchases. I also will be talking about oils on Facebook and on Instagram.
The other, even cooler way I get to empower families is by teaching and coaching really awesome woman how to build a business for themselves. Our team is awesome, we have training, team calls, facebook groups and all of the resources you would need. Email me or message me on any social media if this is something you are interested in. I am only looking to work with 2-3 women who are looking to add income to their family and invest around 15 hours a week building a business. I know this isn’t for everyone, but if your story looks a lot like mine, and your a looking to build something for yourself, this might be just what you are looking for.
That is my crazy cool new gig. I get to work from home, with amazing oils on an amazing team of women empowering families with safe, effective, natural solutions for their health and wellbeing.
