Fact vs. Fiction: doTERRA Edition
If you had told me a couple of years ago that I’d be doing this I’d have laughed in your face.
Why? Because I used to think that ALL multi-level marketing was sleazy, without really being educated on it. So even though I liked doTERRA oils and I purchased them regularly through my yoga studio, I was not open-minded or willing enough to consider growing as a business. I thought:
“It’s just a Ponzi scheme”
“Only the people at the top make money”
“It’s super competitive”
“You have to be great at sales”
“It’s TOO expensive”
I can tell you from first-hand experience that NONE of that is true. And here’s why:
“It’s just a Ponzi scheme” - Firstly, by definition a ponzi scheme: “is a fraudulent investment operation where the operator provides fabricated reports and generates returns for older investors through revenue paid by new investors, rather than from legitimate business activities or profit of financial trading.” With doTERRA there is a PRODUCT - these beautiful oils. So, that’s falsehood #1.
“Only the people at the top make money.” doTERRA works in the opposite fashion of traditional multi-level-marketing. Everyone at the bottom benefits higher percentages of takeaways than those at the top. Plus our leaders are generous, loving, kind, and hold the space for us all to rise to the occasion.
“It’s super competitive” - not true. We rise by lifting others and this community of women is SO supportive. Teams support one another. It’s a sisterhood. It’s beautiful.
“You have to be great at sales.” NOPE. We don’t “sell” anything. The oils speak for themselves. All we do is educate and empower people to make educated decisions about their health and wellness.
“It’s TOO expensive” Again, compared to what? Personally, my health is worth it, and I spend less on oils than on doctor’s visits, prescriptions, over the counter meds, and missed work. Also, the oils last a long time - to give you an idea of how long these oils will potentially last you, there are 250 drops of essential oil in a 15ml bottle. and one application is typically no more than 2-3 drops!
Life is good. I am well. My finances are in order. And I’m eternally grateful to this company for doing the work they do in the world, and giving me the chance to step up and share these tools with others <3
