My Journey with
My business tapped me on the shoulder in 2012.
I was 25 years old and while my mates were playing beer pong, I heeded the call of my muse and spent my hours, days, months, writing, writing, writing. Head down, bum up. Rather quickly, and with plenty of devotion, I was established as a sought-after and fully-booked coach and best-selling author. That seems ridiculous as I type this now – a 25 year old sold out coach – but I guess perhaps that what’s available when we worship at the altar of our inspiration; we listen, we hear, we trust, we move and we rise.
Those years of lightning-fast expansion showed me the joy and the power that comes when women band together and crack open to blossom, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that something was missing from my business. Despite 'achieving success' at such a young age, I sensed something different and unexpected was just around the corner, and I couldn't wait to immerse myself into something new, fresh and different.
Then, in January 2015, I stumbled across the doTERRA business opportunity. (That's not entirely true. It was an answer to a prayer) I recognised, almost immediately, the impact that could be made with a product and opportunity such as this. By myself, by others, together.
So I packed all the skills I’d acquired thus far (from business and life) and adapted them to the network marketing landscape. Frankly, I got to work. I intentionally invited people I had a strong ‘Know, Like & Trust’ factor with into an experience with the oils, and I offered the business opportunity to those that I knew would see the same vision that I could.
In 10 months, we had created a thriving Diamond organization.
By 20 months, I was just the 8th leader in Australia to be recognised as a Blue Diamond.
And at 27 months, we were the 3rd team in Australia to co-create Presidential Diamond.
Today, I am blessed to celebrate the rising of Team Bliss as a whole. With now over 25 Diamonds and above in our midsts, including two more Presidential Diamonds, I’m reminded of the very reason I started in the first place. Them.
My life has changed immeasurably, from the inside out.
My WHY for doing this business is crystal clear and really quite emotional.
All through my life – from the every day to my experience as being a coach – I saw women who felt trapped. Creatively, spiritually, but especially financially. I don’t want to see that anymore, whether that’s by circumstance, by self-limiting stories or by social conditioning.
In particular, I don't want to see financial stress taking up space in anyone's life when they're suffering. My own experience with trauma taught me of the real value of this business model.
In January 2016 I became ill and was bed-bound for 3 months. I was too unwell to even scroll Instagram let alone build an empire, but I thanked my stars every day that I had spent the last twelve months focusing on Team Bliss, because while sick, a 5-figure monthly income supported me during this health crisis. This is why I believe there is truly no other business model quite like network marketing. While I was struggling with the day-to-day perils of illness, my team was still devoting to their own businesses, which in turn was building mine. They were supporting me more during this time than they will ever quite understand. This sentiment continues to echo back at me on a weekly basis. I hear ‘thank you for this opportunity’ regularly from friends and collaborators who are redesigning their lives and experiencing real and lasting results.
The cyclical nature of this business model gives the gift of this.
Support your people.
Their efforts support you.
Life gets in the way sometimes. Loved ones pass. People get sick. There is grief, heartache, separation. And when that happens (and some of it certainly will), I truly believe that cash flow is the last thing we should be worried about.
I want to help women and men create a life that can and will look after them even in times where it may be difficult to look after themselves.
I want to help them create a life in which the abundance they’re circulating allows them to carry on with the work that sets their soul ablaze.
