Hello! Thank you for looking at my website. My name is Kara Edstrom and I am a Young Living Gold Education Leader and Business Trainer. I currently have a team of 1,100 + amazing people and I absolutely LOVE my role with Young Living!
I started this oil journey with my daughter's best friend's Mom, Patrice. Our daughters played travel basketball and softball together and we quickly learned each of us had a bag of oils in our purses! We didn't know each other very well at that time. The more we started talking, the more we learned how each of us used our products in our homes. As we started "rolling" these oils on the girls at practices and games, the other moms started asking us what we were doing. So October, 2014 we had our first oils class and taught our friends and family how to use the awesome oils we were using.
One thing I can say, was neither of us EVER intending to do anything with the business side of Young Living. I know now, that God had other plans for us.
I was in the financial corporate world for 22 years as a Director of Operations. I managed teams that provided services to over 4,800 plans and $17 billion in assets. While I worked and had kids in travel A sports, my evenings out were spent educating people on Young Living products. My team was growing and growing by the day. For 2 years, God made it very clear to me the path I was to take was with Young Living. It didn't always make sense to me, but I followed his leading. As of January 2016, I had some answers to prayers, and I was able to start working for Young Living full time.
I absolutely LOVE what I am doing and helping all of those in my group!
My passion is helping my business leaders grow their own teams and educating our product users on the products.
I love helping my business builders find the joy in working for this company, and that there is so much more to life than a regular corporate job. The income potential with Young Living far surpasses what an average person makes in the corporate world. You can be your own boss. You can spend more time with your family. And you can earn an income having FUN! The surprise benefit, is the people you work with will become like family to you.
Related to product education, I really enjoy educating my group on why Young Living is different than all the other brands out there. Young Living has a strict Seed to Seal process that no other company in the world can duplicate. I have been out to plant the lavender twice at the farm in Utah and once to the farm in Idaho. I teach Intro to Oils classes, Ditch and Switch classes, Oils of the Bible, Beauty/Skincare/Makeup classes, online education, make and take events, and so much more.
If you aren't a Young Living member, I hope you consider joining my team and all of our team resources!
I look forward to helping you on your journey!
