Young Living: Having Your Own Business

Almost two years ago, I purchased what's called a "Starter Kit" from my friend Jen who works for Young Living. I was interested in learning more about essential oils, but had no idea that I had the opportunity of starting my own business as well!

Let me stop you here before your eyes may roll too far back into your brain...


Pyramid Scheme vs Multi Level Marketing 


"There are many products or services that distributors will be "customers" for as long as there is a financial opportunity to go with it. The means justify the end. Unfortunately, when all the shine wears off, no one continues to use the product. This is a pyramid scheme". 


"Network Marketing is a business; it is not a hobby, a game, a scheme, a deal, or something in which to dabble. People who treat it lightly do not succeed. People who treat it as a new career, a profession, and a business have a reasonable opportunity to make it pay off very well." - The Four Year Career(How to make your dreams of fun and financial freedom come true...or not...)


I'm sure you've heard the sales pitches, received the random messages from people that you haven't spoken to in YEARS, or you may have even been asked to hang out with a new friend who turns the meeting into a 'have you heard of this product, let me tell you about it' sales meeting. Trust me, I would roll my eyes too and definitely have. 


This is why I'm writing this... I don't want to sales pitch you. I don't want to force a ridiculously over-hyped product down your throat and make you feel obligated to commit. 


I want you to understand that I work for Young Living. I use their products. I buy their products every month. I want to provide for my family and I want other people to have that same opportunity. I go to work and come home without ever leaving. 


Young Living has set up their business to be transparent and attainable. The monthly requirements are LOW, and you're actually receiving a product that you want and use. It's not a "magic pill" or an item that you don't know the origin. Let me break it down for you:


 Premium Starter Kit

No hidden fees, no unattainable commitments, no financial burden. 

Stress Away Essential Oil

One of the biggest reasons that I started with Young Living was because the investment wasn’t a complete life-altering cost. I invested $160 and signed up for Essential Rewards spending $50 a month.

I’ve tried multi-level-marketing before and was completely screwed over(to be frank). The first one, I invested $700 and didn’t receive a penny back. The next one, I almost invested $2,000 before realizing that I wouldn’t be set up to succeed.

I invested in Young Living, and I’m already seeing the return. Not only with the products I receive, but the income that’s constantly growing. And all I’m doing is sharing about a company that I love who’s products I use everyday.
