Four years ago today, I purchased my first Premium Starter Kit, with no intentions of wanting to do the "biz" side of Young Living. I wanted nothing to do with it, didn't want to learn it, and didn't feel it was something I would ever be successful at….. I just wanted the products for my family.

As we began to see positive changes in our health, others were noticing and asking what we were doing. I would share with them about the oils, and I was getting these "accidental paychecks" and still refused to look at the compensation plan and figure out how and why I was getting paid. Without knowing any of those details, I actually hit my first rank of STAR in July 2014.

I was approached by a good friend, who is someone many of you know and love, Shannon Carroll approached me about teaching a class for her because she had seen the change in our family and was having a change in her own family with their healthcare, and was looking for wellness.
One that call, I said SURE…. then hung up the phone thinking, what on earth did I just agree too!!!! I don't like to speak in public, I have never taught and oily class, do I even really know what I am doing….. basically, ALL THE FEELS, and NERVES were happening.

That first class was taught October 9, 2014. Stepping out of my comfort zone to teach, and just trusting God's plan was the scariest thing I had done up to that point. There was a much bigger plan in place.

The fire started burning, and people's desire to find a more natural way for their health and wellness launched us to Senior Star in January 2015 with a team of 42 members. I remember being so shocked when we hit 10 members, 15 members, 20, 30, and it was growing…. people were looking for a better answer, and we had that answer in a little box called a premium starter kit.

My passion continuously grew for helping others see change and to tell the world about Young Living. My family was starting to see freedom in health, wellness, and we started to catch the vision of what financial freedom could look like.

We quickly ranked to Executive in June 2015 and just 2 months later hit SILVER in August 2015 with 210 members on our team. I remember hearing about Silver's in the early stages of this thing thinking, yeah right, 10,000 OGV could never happen for me….. but then it did!

So much personal growth and development happened over that next year for me. I plugged myself in anywhere I could get information. I made sure I was teachable, and I was hungry to become a better leader for my growing team.
July 2016 I had the opportunity to attend First Steps to Success, and that totally changed my life. Positive mindset, my outlook on myself, getting rid of the excuses, so many things brought home from this event.

Implementing that new attitude of positivity, getting rid of the excuses and just doing it, we ranked to GOLD in September 2016 with 720 members on our team .
It has been so amazing to see other leaders emerge, the lives change, and to celebrate with each member when they achieve their personal and business goals.

November 2017, we as a team hit PLATINUM with 1485 members 😮 What a life changing experience to know the number of lives changed. Each time we rank, the biggest to that rank for us is knowing that number of lives touched is increasing with each one. Oils in every home was Gary Young's vision, and I feel honored and blessed to be able to carry a torch and light the world on fire with change!

I remember having a conversation with Craig L Smith in the beginning after reading the book, The Four Year Career, let's just give this a shot for 4 years, what's the worst thing that could happen…. maybe we might be Silver, which by looking at the income disclosure statement was the monthly financial amount that would be life changing for our family.

-We haven't always maintained rank
-It's not always been easy
-There are times I have wanted to quit
-Personal growth isn't the most fun thing in the world
-I never knew how to dream until 2016-2017 ish
-It took a long time to see myself as a leader that anyone would want to follow
-I have sacrificed things over the past 4 years to become successful



I literally have been able to travel the world and experience life through Young Living!

Now our team is over 1500 strong and enrolls anywhere from 40-120 members per month, and the chance for your financial freedom is knocking…. will you answer it?

We are so excited to be chasing DIAMOND 
our team and helping them achieve their dreams.
