What Does Financial Freedom Mean to You?
To me, this means having the time and money to do what you want. Having time to spend with your family and friends and not being limited by money.
Doesn’t that sound AWESOME?
But isn’t that a privilege reserved for the privileged few in the world and doesn’t that require huge sacrifices?
It doesn’t have to. Thousands of doTERRA Wellness Advocates are “living the dream” every day.
Is it your turn? Or are you scared? Scared that you will fail?
STOP being afraid and BELIEVE that it’s possible because IT IS!
You can work from home and in the process help others feel great and experience a new level of wellness they didn’t think was possible. Help others AND make money. It’s a win-win.
Why Did I Choose doTERRA?
I did accounting full-time for years. Not the CPA kind that does taxes but that kind that does all the reporting in businesses and makes all sorts of reports. I did a lot of office management and even had a few people under me at one point. I actually started out loving accounting. I took an accounting classes in high school and thought it was so easy and fun. I started working in accounting at age 16 and did it for the next 14 years, with one year off as a paralegal.
But the last few years of doing accounting, as my health was getting worse and worse from the stress of it, I started wanting more. I was tired of working for someone else. I poured myself in to my job and I was really good at it, but who ultimately benefited from all that work I was doing? My employer. My employer who didn’t appreciate all the tons of sacrifice it takes to work full time. I wanted to have a life. I wanted children. We tried for almost 9 years to have children before we adopted our first child. Near the end, I wanted a child so bad, if nothing else, so I could quit my job. I had to work so we could put most of my paycheck toward adoption expenses but I could barely wait to quit.
I actually ended up quitting two months before we adopted our first child. I just couldn’t wait any more. I was so tired of being under-appreciated, passed over for a promotion and tired of sacrificing my time and health for someone else. But the time I quit my job, all I wanted to do was work for myself. I didn’t mind working hard. I just didn’t want all my efforts to benefit someone else.
Being a new mom, it was my chance. I didn’t work very much for the first few years of being a mom. We adopted our second child eight months after the first. The stress of two newborns made my health severely decline. I felt awful all the time and my Rheumatoid Arthritis was severely debilitating. To make a long story short, I spend A LOT of time, money and effort to feel better. I was fairly successful but we were broke. I had to start making money or we would have to sell our house.
So, I started selling movies on Amazon and eBay. I was quite successful at this for about five years but it’s hard work. I had to hire employees (mostly my family) to help. It’s a high volume type of business. I always said I was doing it until I found something better to do.
Then I started getting an urge… An urge to help others with their health problems. I had no free time but somehow I managed to find some time to start a health blog. I started posting recipes and health articles on MyNaturalFamily.com. The blog started growing and we had made a lot of health improvements but still felt like something was missing. Then we were introduced to doTERRA. We signed up and started using the product. We used it for about six months and learned to love it and started feeling better. Because I was feeling better, I had more energy to get more done in the day. I figured I may as well try to sell doTERRA on my blog. New signups started trickling in. Now over two years later, I consistently get signups on my blog and am getting closer and closer to experiencing financial freedom.
I’m making more and more money every month and I’m getting close to making a good full-time income. We just finished a huge, awesome remodel on our house, in large part using the money I’ve made from doTERRA. We’ve started to travel a little and I have been able to hire more employees so I have more time to focus on the important parts of my business.
Are You Sick of the “Rat Race?”
It takes a huge amount of trust and courage to admit that you hate your job and you’re ready to accept more in to your life. Even if you are successful at your job, are you really happy? Is your heart in it – or are you just working for your paycheck?
Life is too short to spend most of your waking hours doing something you HATE!
You have the right to choose how to spend your time and live the life you envision. If you don’t start now, it may never happen. You may get to the end of your life and realize you spent your whole life wishing it away.
Stop wishing and start doing! Envision in your mind what loving your job and having financial freedom looks like to you. Imagine you are standing there and there is a huge wall in front of you. Now imagine yourself jumping up and grabbing the top and pulling yourself up and peeking over the fence. What does the other side of the fence look like?
Are you ready for how awesome it could be?
Do you believe it COULD happen?
Do you want it bad enough to do what it takes to make it happen?
Are you ready to change?
I sincerely believe that doTERRA could be the solution for financial freedom for you!
But Aren’t Network Marketing Companies Bad?
A reputable MLM/Network Marketing company can be a win-win for everyone. Instead of MLM’s paying huge corporations millions of dollars to do their advertising, they pay normal people like you to advertise their products.
Doesn’t buying from an MLM mean the product costs more? NO! The company saves money on advertising, cuts out the middle men and people like you can make money for advertising their products – not some faceless corporation or TV station.
Aren’t MLM’s just out to make money? Of course. So is every business. Why else would they be in business? Every company is trying to make money. But instead of the money going to stores and advertising, the money goes in to the hands of normal people, like YOU! This empowers you to create home-based business opportunities.
Are there bad MLM’s out there? Sure. There always will be and you should stay away from those, of course. Pyramid schemes by definition mean you are paying money but not getting a real product. All Pyramid Schemes are MLM’s but not all MLM’s are Pyramid Schemes. Got it?
doTERRA Isn’t a “Real” Job
This is true. You don’t earn a certain dollar per hour. How is it different? First off, you need to fall in love with the product yourself and use the product often.
Next, you determine your income. You work as little or much as you want. You have to motivate yourself. You may have to go outside your comfort zone. It can be hard but first but after a while it starts snowballing and starts getting easier, and your paycheck gets bigger every time (if you’re actually working). No $ per hour job will allow you to make more money in every paycheck with unlimited income. After you have done the business for a while, you will realize how AWESOME residual income is.
You can make money while you are sleeping, playing with your children, going on a date, etc.
You can have a life! A really good life.

doTERRA is a great company for work-at-home moms, stay-at-home moms, bloggers and anyone looking for supplemental income. The doTERRA business opportunity has the potential to be huge. Once you sign up as a doTERRA Wellness Advocate and realize how fantastic their products are and how much they help you and your family, it’s hard to not tell others about it. So many people have health problems and are struggling and looking for answers. doTERRA really fills the need with a solution for virtually every health problem you can think of.
I’ve looked in to several other direct selling opportunities and I like doTERRA the best by far. Here’s why:
- The products fill a real need that people have and it feels good to be able to help other people.
- The products actually work and are super-high quality.
- The company itself is sound with no debt and high-quality founders.
- It is in the HUGE and growing alternative health field. More and more people are realizing that traditional medicine is not for them.
- There is almost no health problem they can’t help, and they can help with problems that traditional medicine can’t help with.
- You get your own website and can have people sign up and you don’t have to do it all in person (you don’t HAVE to have a party in your home, bug your friends or give a sales presentation to everyone before they start).
- Residual Income – once you get someone to sign up under you, they stay under you and you earn bonuses off what they purchase for as long as they stay a customer.
- The company itself is a great company and is growing VERY quickly. They care about and support their community, employees and consultants. doTERRA is only 6 years old. They have grown to be the largest essential oil company in the world. You don’t accomplish that kind of growth if you don’t have high-quality products and a company to back it up. This is an amazing company. They are unlike any network marketing company I have ever heard of. You can read more about the company here: doTERRA – Company Story
- There is a HUGE potential to make money if you can get a good team under you. I know of a lot of people who make six figures doing this. Of course, it’s not guaranteed. But if nothing else, they have great promotions like the monthly auto-ship program where you can change your order every month and earn points for free product, they have a free product of the month and every few months they have a great promotion. For example, every few months for every 200PV order (which is usually $200), you get a free product, often worth around $60-80. Talk about incentive for your team to purchase!

How Do I Get Started?
Follow the six steps outlined below to get started with your doTERRA business:
Step #1 – Enroll in doTERRA
Sign Up as a Wellness Advocate (WA) with at least a 100 PV (personal volume) order. Any of the enrollment kits will include the $35 sign up fee and will qualify for the $50 of free essential oils from me. Click the link below to read all the FAQs about signing up, using the oils, the enrollment kits & more.
Step #2 – Contact Me
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what $50 in free essential oils you want and tell me you are interested in starting a doTERRA business. I will add you to my business builders email series. In this series I will e-mail you every few days telling you everything you need to know about building a doTERRA business. I’ll teach you how to teach a class, what other resources are out there, how to sign up others online, how the compensation plan works, how to structure your organization and how to train others. I’m always adding new information to the training and I’m always here as a resource for you.
Step #3 – Use the Oils
I want you to use the oils and love them before you try to sell them. They may not be for you. You may think they are really awesome and you will want to share them with others. Either way, you need to experience the oils before you can say if you like them or not. You may be able to skip this step if you’ve already tried doTERRA.
Step #4 – LRP
After you have used the oils for a while and know you like them, commit to at least a 100 PV monthly LRP (100PV is usually $100. LRP is the Loyalty Rewards Program).
Why LRP? First off, it’s a really good rewards programs and if you use the oils consistently, you’re going to want to do it (see below). Second, if you want to sign up others, then you are required to do a 100PV LRP order every month. (If your budget is tight, it is possible to wait until you sign someone up and then hurry and sign up for LRP yourself.)
What is LRP?
Loyalty rewards will save you a lot of money. It is an amazing rewards program that is 100% optional. However, it is by far the most intelligent method of ordering product from doTERRA. It’s very similar to a frequent flyer program. With doTERRA, it’s 100 points a months, which is about $100 a month.
See this first square that say Months 1 to 3? That means for the first three months that you are doing the 100 points per month, you are going to get 10% back in free product credits. That means that for every $100 you buy, you are going to get $10 back in free product credits that you can redeem any time you want.
The next 3 months it goes up and so on.
Then after your first year, it goes up to 30%
That means for every $30 you buy, you will get 30% back in free product credits.
I’ve been doing this for a long time so for every $100 I buy, I am getting $30 back in free product credits. So that’s huge.
Remember – you are already getting 25% off retail. This is an additional 10-30% off wholesale.
Another huge bonus of LRP is the Shipping Rewards Program, in which if you have an online LRP order, you receive 100 percent of the shipping costs back as points to buy more product (in essence, free shipping).

Step #5 - Enroll Others
To succeed in your doTERRA business you need to enroll others. The Share Success Share Guide gives you a really good overview of the Share Program, how to share successfully, how to prepare, scripts on what to say, inviting friends to classes, sharing samples, class refreshments, follow-up ideas and sharing one-on-one. You don’t have to do this alone. There are tons of resources out there to help you succeed. Click here to read the Share Guide.
Here are the main ways you can sign up others:
Classes – there is the traditional network marketing way of doing classes. There is lots of help from doTERRA and myself on how to do it and what to say. They have a Class in a Box Kit. You get all the tools you need to teach a class for a heavily discounted price. There is a script that you follow and it tells you when to play video clips and gives you an outline of what to say when. This is a proven system that was developed after lots of feedback. The focus of these classes is not sales. It is education and then most people, when they become educated, want to experience the oils for themselves.
You choose when you want to do your classes, where, how often, etc. Once you know what you’re doing, you will hopefully find others that want to build a doTERRA business so you may end up helping them teach classes and training them on how to run the business.
One on One – You can talk to people individually and tell them of your experiences, answer their questions and sign up. They do not HAVE to listen to a sales pitch.
Long Distance – You do not have to visit with someone in person to sell doTERRA. You can contact your family and friends and teach them about the oils, post on facebook, visit people, talk to strangers while you are traveling. You do not have to talk to them in person. I have people all over the world on my team.
International – I was talking to a guy a few houses down from me and we found out that we both sell doTERRA. He is originally from Korea and speaks English and Korean. At the time I talked to him, he had signed up 400 people in Korea, all long distance. He says he does it mostly with online chats and video conferencing and that sort of thing. You can do a lot through email. If you happen to know a second language, there is a huge opportunity to sell in other markets.
Here are some facts about doTERRA’s international market:
- doTERRA is officially opened in 40+ countries, including: United States, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Europe, Australia, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, French Polynesia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and other parts of Central America.
- 85+ companies are serviced via NFR (not for resale) and GAC (Global Access) programs
- 15-20% of doTERRA’s global sales come from outside the United States.
Travel – If you’re a traveler then doTERRA could be a great fit for you. Travel is not necessary but most of the top doTERRA Wellness Advocates are world travelers. They travel as much or as little as they want and when and where they want. Their expenses are tax deductible and they drive or fly to help others on their team teach classes and explain training products. They often bring their families. Think about it. You sign up some of your family and friends that live away from you in other states or countries. You sign them up long-distance because you rarely have the time or money to go see them. Then over time their business grows and your business grows. Eventually you can travel to visit these family and friends and have the expenses be tax deductible and possibly even paid for by the company. You see, there is something called Diamond Club. With Diamond Club, there are certain requirements, like you need so many people on your team that live so many miles away from you. You then get a Diamond above you to sponsor you and pay for half of your travel expenses and doTERRA pays the other half. Most Diamond Club participants skyrocket their business during this time. You can read all about Diamond Club here.
Online – You can sell doTERRA on a blog, website, facebook page, etc. You can do facebook parties, Twitter parties and webinars. Your readers simply click a link. When they purchase, doTERRA services the order and ships it and sends you a bonus check (see below). I think blogging deserves it’s own section since that’s how I do my doTERRA business, so if you are a blogger or are thinking about blogging, please read: Why Affiliate Programs Rock for Bloggers but Network Marketing is Better.
Your own personal website – With doTERRA when you join with a wholesale membership everyone automatically gets a free website to send others to and when they go there, you get credit for them joining your team. It is free for as long as you buy at least $50 in essential oils a year. Here is an example of what the link and website look like:
The blog I use that you are on now is one I set up by myself on WordPress and I just link to my website above so I get credit when people sign up. There are several other options of shopping carts made by third party providers that you can pay a separate monthly fee for if you want to want save time and money and have your sign-up system be different than the generic website above.

The doTERRA Compensation Plan
If you are at all familiar with the compensation plan of other network marketing companies, you’ll find this one to be refreshing and rewarding. The basis of the plan is that you don’t succeed unless you help others succeed. This isn’t about being selfish with our health, knowledge, or business. It is about being generous all the way around and that is my favorite part!
To read doTERRA’s summary of the compensation plan, click here. Here are more details of their compensation plan:
There are six ways to earn commission with doTERRA. They are independent of each other.
#1- Retail Profit
You are allowed to buy doTERRA at the wholesale cost and sell it for however much you can get for it and you can make profit that way. This would be a great option if you have a store, are a mid-wife, sell at a craft fair or you are a chiropractor or massage therapist with clients.
You can also refer people to your own doTERRA store that you will receive when you sign up as a WA and if they want to purchase the items at the retail cost so they don’t have to sign up or anything, doTERRA will ship the items directly to them and you will receive the 25% different between the wholesale cost and the retail cost. When you sign up, you are given a link to your store that you can post online at places like facebook, Pinterest or a blog.
You get 25% commission on any/all of these orders placed with your ID#. To receive this you must be an active WA but no monthly order or LRP is required.
#2- Preferred Members
Some people prefer to sign up as a preferred member. This is a good option for people who don’t want to give out their SSN, don’t want to build and don’t mind paying a little money for the oils in exchange for a lower signup fee. Spas, health stores and other businesses find this to be a good option. Generally, I don’t recommend this option. For one thing, it’s not as good for them and it’s not as good for you since they are placed directly under you and don’t help you rank. Although you can see from the percentages below, that if you had a large spa buying a lot of oils from you, you could make a good amount of money.
Preferred Members (PMs) signed up directly under you (combined monthly total):
For their purchase of $1-499, I receive 10%
For their purchase of $500-1999, I receive 15%
For their purchase of $2000-2999, I receive 20%
For their purchase of $3000+, I receive 25%
To receive this you must be an active IPC but no monthly order or LRP is required.
#3- Fast Start Bonus
As long as you have a 100 PV LRP order yourself, then you receive 20% of what new WAs purchase in the first 60 days. This can be huge because WA’s generally purchase a lot at the beginning so they can try the different things out.
You receive 20% on purchases made within the first 60 days by WA’s that you enroll. The person who enrolled you receives 10%, and the person who enrolled that person receives 5%. This is why it is good to keep signing up new WA’s (enroller based). Fast Start payments are processed on Wednesday (covering the prior Monday-Sunday) and mailed/deposited on Thursday. In order to receive Fast Start commissions you must have a LRP order of at least $100 PV in place at all times and must process once during the month.
#4- Power of Three Team Bonus
Watch this video to learn more:(Problems viewing? See the video here – http://youtu.be/HdE9eTYZiaU)
To explain it graphically, if this little green person is you and you have shared the oils with three people, you want to do those 100 points a month so you can get a $50 bonus. It’s a bonus on top of the regular paycheck. Once each of these three dark blue guys have shared the oils with 3 people each who want to do the 100 points a month, you are getting $250 a month bonus, which is awesome because you are more than covering what you are wanting to buy every month. So once these 9 people have shared it with 3 people each who want to do the 100 points a month, now you are up to $1500 a month and that is a significant income for most households.
#5- Unilevel Organizational Bonus
Unilevel is sponsor-based. Payment of unilevel is dependent upon three things: OV; Rank and a LRP order in place. When you first start out with doTERRA, this is a very small percentage of your paycheck. Most of your check will probably come from Fast Start bonuses and Power of 3 bonuses. But as your business grows and especially as it gets deeper, your unilevel bonus will get larger and larger. The top Wellness Advocates make around 80% of their income from unilevel – and that’s saying a lot because they get around $4,000 in bonus pool income when they are a Diamond and the levels above that get even more.
Consultant (Level 1) – You must have a 50 PV LRP order process. You are paid 2% of everything that the WA’s you personally signed up purchase (after the first 60 days).
Manager and Above (Levels 2-7) – If you can get someone you signed up to sign someone else up, then you will want to move up to the Manager position or you won’t receive the 3% payout from your 2nd level. You need your own 100 PV LRP monthly order and at least 500 OV. doTERRA is unique because you actually get a higher percentage the farther down the line the WA’s are – they do this to motivate you to build your team. You are paid the % on the chart for each level as long as you meet the rank requirements at the top of the page. You can look in the doTERRA back end at any time and see what rank you are and what it takes to get to the next rank. This is paid on the 15th of the next month. You received one combined check on the 15th for everything except Fast Start.
Compression – this means that if you have someone under you that doesn’t do their 100 PV LRP order, what they would have been paid in bonuses moves up to you. So you can actually get paid several levels lower than 7 levels.
#6- Rank Bonuses/Bonus Pools
Bonus pools start once you hit Silver. Once you reach the Silver level, you’re pretty awesome in the doTERRA world. You get to go in the special line at Pick Up in Orem, UT. You can attend special Silver and above training and several other things. But the main reason you want to be a silver is because you then are a part of the Leadership Performance Pool. They take all the sales for that month and multiply it by 2%. Then all the Silvers get at least one share in this pool. Then as you work your way up you get even more shares.
Right now a Silver share is around $130. That means a Gold gets about $650 and a Platinum gets $1300. The Diamond Pool share is around $4,000 per share.
