Before I started my journey into natural health, I didn’t realize how much my lifestyle affected my health & happiness. In my teens and early twenties, I experienced a lot of emotional challenges and anxiety, complete with headaches and digestive challenges, and spent 9 years taking antidepressants. I never thought that many of the symptoms I was experiencing were potential side effects of ingredients in the products I was using everyday - household cleaners, laundry detergents, beauty & personal care products and the food I was putting into my body. I started swapping out my products in my bathroom, kitchen and laundry room for more natural options, one item at a time. I learned how nutritionally-deficient and toxin-filled the food is that fills the aisles of our grocery stores. I started reading labels, eating as organically as possible and filling my body with fresh foods and whole-food supplements. I found out that many other Americans were waking up to all these same things (other countries already WAY ahead of us), and that many big companies were taking advantage by labeling packages to appeal to naturally minded consumers, when the contents may or may not be slightly less toxic than the regular ones.
In 2009, a friend shared Peace & Calming essential oil with me for my dog, who was nervous about thunderstorms. At the time, I had been married 2 years and was a dog trainer and groomer with 2 “fur kids” (Border Collies). I was skeptical, but eventually decided to give that little bottle of plant juice a try! When I saw what a difference it made for my dog, I explored the catalog and ordered Inner Child essential oil for myself, which was the start of a life-changing journey.
My trust and love for Young Living (along with my product orders) have grown right alongside my family. Now a mom of two kids with another due this July, YL is a daily part of our family life. The entire family uses YL supplements, body care products, cleaning supplies, and essential oils. We are all happy and healthy, and I don't have to shop at a million different places and do a bunch of research to buy the stuff we use everyday! I’ve seen their farms and process, and trust that I’m getting truly natural, safe, quality products.
As I experienced the amazing shifts and changes with each new YL product I tried, I shared my experiences with my family and friends. They tried products and shared their own oil stories. I started receiving “thank you checks” for referring others to YL before I even knew there was income opportunity. The extra income helped our family through some tough times, and eventually replaced my dog grooming and training income. I am now able to be with my children full time and contribute to our family income from home, doing something that hasn’t ever felt like a “job”. My business partners are my sister, my mom, and a growing number of close friends, most of us never even considering this business a possibility at the beginning.
It has become a passion for me to share a life of Wellness, Purpose and Abundance with others. It has given me the opportunity to ask others, “If health, time and money weren’t issues, how would you live your life?” and give them the chance to experience what that feels like. The best part is sharing the journey with so many amazing people, and creating huge, life changing ripples together, well beyond where we ever thought we could reach. People are not only feeling great, but they are getting out of debt, able to take their first family vacation, continuing to receive income while on maternity leave, able to afford the toxin-free lifestyle they desire, and giving back to others in ways they weren't able to before.
