Hello! Thank you for looking at my website. My name is Kara Edstrom and I am a Young Living Gold Leader and Business Trainer. I currently have a team of 850 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 daughter's 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. As we started "rolling" these oils on the girls at practice 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 bottles.
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 make it very clear to me the path I was to take. 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 has become a few things. One: 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 pay far surpasses what an average person makes. You can be your own boss. You can spend more time with your family. And you can earn an income having FUN! The people you work with will become like family to you. Secondly: I really enjoy educating my group on why Young Living is different than all the other brands out there because of their seed to seal process. I teach intro to oils classes, ditch and switch classes, oils of the Bible, beauty 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!
