Why start a doTERRA business?

Wherein Leonie TOTALLY READS YOUR MIND...

So, GUYS.

I know what you might be thinking:

Fucking essential oils? How do I build a 6 figure business from smelly shit?

or

Multi Level Marketing? Isn't that a pyramid scheme?

or

Is this Amway? GROSS!

or

Is this really something for me?

Here's why I reckon the doTERRA business model is pretty bloody brilliant.

  • They are really, really generous. They have one of the most generous compensation plans in the industry. It's actually really doable for committed people to earn 6 figures.
  • They have one of the highest retention rates of customers in the industry - doTERRA enjoys a 68 percent retention rate, compared to a direct selling industry average near 10 percent. After joining doTERRA, 68 percent of all customers reorder, continue to share doTERRA products, or build a doTERRA business. What this means is: customers are REALLY happy with their orders... and it's easier for doTERRA businesses to continue earning moolah!
  • They were just ranked the #2 best MLM company worldwide to partner with (despite being a relatively new business - they only started in 2008!)
  • You don't have to hold stock or pay for expenses... it's pure profit. (Which, to me, having spent $500k last year to print workbooks, is a masssssive turn on!)
  • Financial boner alert: it is also residual passive income. Once you build your business, you will have income for the rest of your life.Basically... a really fucking cool retirement plan. I think it's a beautiful insurance idea really... for when you want to take holidays, have time away to have more babies, if you get sick or if, you know... LIFE happens!
  • The reason they sell it as a multi-level marketing company (also known as "network marketing" or "direct marketing") is that doTERRA wants you to find a doTERRA business owner (called a "Wellness Advocate") who supports, educates and helps people get the most out of their essential oils. They don't want people to just go into stores and buy them. They want people to be connected and helped through the process so they can get the most benefit out of the essential oils. Being a doTERRA Wellness Advocate isn't really about "selling" - it's about sharing, connecting and helping people. Or as Em says "I get to hear everyone's secrets so I can help them! I get to be their OIL FAIRY!"
  • It's still a (very) untapped market... less than 1% of the population use essential oils... but over 70% of the population are interested in using natural products to improve their health.
  • Essential oils are something people need to purchase again and again - which increases your earning rates as a business as you get a commission for everyone's orders for all time! Also... as you'll soon learn... they are a bit of an addictive thing that brings people so much joy!
  • They have a really wonderful fair trade model of business that support communities in developing countries to grow indigenous plants for their area.
  • They do some beautiful philanthropy work as well.

Now honesty time: WTF would I be doing a doTERRA business?

So, when I talked to Em the first time about doTERRA businesses, I did NOT think it would be worth my time at all.

I've created two multi-million dollar brands. I own a fast-growth company that is highly profitable. I've been finalist for myBusiness' Australian Business Woman of the Year award and Ausmumpreneur of the Year. And I don't want to be a wanker here, but I became a self-made millionaire just after I was 30 years old.

My time is money, and it's really important for me to choose v. wisely.

So I was reaaaaaally freakin' blunt with Em:

"Babes, there would be no way I'd even be able to consider this thing if it wasn't going to be at least a million dollar a year revenue stream for me."

She responded by telling me about three mutual friends who were doing just that.

And I started seeing it as a really fun extra passive-income stream for me... that would mean I could ease up the gas on my current workload, take time off to write a book (or just fuck around drawing unicorns and playing with my kids)... while building a long-term abundant financial security for me and my family.

I started getting excited about how fun it would be to apply my brain to something new... and to be able to help people super directly in their businesses, and see them prosper too. It would give me so much fucking JOY to use all the business and marketing skills I've built and work with people to see them reach their financial and lifestyle goals. In lots of ways I already do that, but this felt like it would be even more intimate and connected!

I've been doing online business for a looooong ass time now... I've been blogging since 2004, and running an online business since 2008. My brain has been hankering for something new... and I just feel intuitively that this is it... and that it's going to be a really fun adventure!

 

So how much can you earn in doTERRA?

My original intention was to coach go-getters to hit 6 figures within 12 months. I've already helped some committed builders hit it within 9 months of starting, so we are well on track.

If you'd like to go at a slower pace than that, totally fine too. Obviously it's fully up to you whether you're called to it or not. And it's also fully your responsibility, attitude, confidence and ability to focus that will get you there.

I'll provide the coaching and training. But you've got to do the work.

Who is a good fit for doTERRA?

 

There's a really diverse community of doTERRA business owners - from hipster yogis in their 20s to Evangelical Christians in their 60s.

doTERRA is a particularly good fit for:

  • Stay at home mamas
  • Coaches
  • Healers/kinesiologists/massage therapists/people in the healing industries
  • People with a background in marketing or corporate
  • People with a strong interest in natural health
  • Self-motivated go-getters who want to craft a highly successful business.
 

Don't just take it from me... Hear how it has changed my team's lives!

"I struck lucky when I joined Leonie Dawson + Hibiscus Moon in doTERRA. Together they are fanatstic pillars of support. Leonie has such a vast wealth of information that she is WILLING to share for free. Her humour makes learning fun and you pay attention to what shes telling you. Not only is she funny, but she's right! I think for me what makes her special is that she connects to you on a personal level. There have been times I have had low moments, confusion and she will respond to your private messages with valuable advise. She's a busy person yet you still feel she is invested in YOU.

I feel I am not a number or just another name in her ever growing list, but part of a fantastic team. Her pages and groups are excellent for asking quick questions and there is always somebody around to give you their experience and help you out with your issue. Being part of her downline has given me confidence and helped me not just in my doTERRA business but in my other busineses too so it filters through to your every day life FOR THE BETTER.

Nothing ever happens by accident - there is always a reason. People cross your path at the time you need them to and I'm glad to have crossed paths. I could keep going with positives but will leave it there. Just know that when you are part of her team you will become a better version of you in all aspects of your life and that's the key."

"I’ve avidly followed Leonie and used her Life Workbook for the last few years. I love that she is a sweary hippy who also has an amazeballs business head on her shoulders. I’ve used essential oils for 30 years, but doTERRA are next level in my humble opinion. I especially love the emotional and mental health support they have given me in the last seven months, after struggling on and off with this for 20 years. Leonie’s Unicorn Tribe is full of kind, caring and sharing human beings who embody the spirit of dōTERRA. I’ve made some beautiful friends, many of whom I’m yet to meet in person. With the incredible support and training offered here I’m slowly and persistently growing a biz while being a wife and mum to two teenagers and working full time as a Primary School teacher. I feel so blessed to be part of this journey!"

I joined to get better prices on the oils and without even noticing I have begun building a business and I am now at Elite. This happened naturally, organically and has felt supported and loving the whole way . My journey has just started and I am so excited to see where the doTERRA path takes me. Dive in , fall in love with the oils and soaking in all the fabulous knowledge in this amazing team. You might just surprise yourself!"

"These oils have changed my life, and transformed my business. And this team is incredible - I have never felt so supported. I am eternally grateful to Leonie for introducing me to these oils and for the amazing mentorship I have received in Team Unicorn!"

"I had been following Leonie through her Shining Biz since the beginning of the year when I came across her in my search for business and entrepreneur teachers. I found her down to earth, inspirational and believable. I've always loved Aromatherapy and used oils, and was exploring the doTERRA business model, when I realised Leonie had also joined Doterra. That gave the company extra credibility to me, as I had never so much even sniffed a doTERRA oil before that. I took the leap and joined as I wanted to build a business, and for a small investment really to go into business, it was fairly low risk. Then I received the oils and fell immediately in love. All my other oils are languishing in the cupboard.
I love being on Leonie's team, I know I'm in safe hands as Leonie has so much business knowledge and she is so ready to share."

"Working with Leonie to build a doTERRA business has totally changed my life. I had a successful, profitable online biz which was my family’s primary income, but I was started to feel stagnant and stuck. I realize now I was letting my own fears hold me back. Since working with doTERRA is so simple and so clear - you always know the thing you need to do to grow your business - I’ve been challenged to move past my fear, grow faster and stronger, and this has led to healing and growth across my life. I’m becoming braver, more powerful (and more abundant) every month."

With this business model I get to run my own business in my own way yet be supported by other generous, entrepreneurs with big hearts and big vision for change in the world. I have met wonderful new people and reconnected with old friends through this business. I wish I’d done it sooner!"

We Give Back...

Once I saw doTERRA's business model, I realised it had incredible potential to fund philanthropic endeavours.

I'm delighted to share that I donate $20,000 of my doTERRA cheque annually to feeding, clothing + educating the beautiful orphans at Suluhisho Children's Village, Kenya.

Run by one of my doTERRA leaders, the incredible Jacinta Ojwang, Suluhisho provides a safe, loving environment to children who have no other option due to poverty and the AIDS epidemic. I am honoured to be part of such a life-changing initiative.

“I was starting to feel trapped by my old business: I was already charging at the higher end of the scale, and could only earn more by doing more hours. I was stressed, unhealthy and unhappy. Starting a doTERRA business with the support of Leonie and Team Unicorn has been the best thing I could have done! I’ve replaced my previous income, which means that I get to pick and choose my clients in my old business, which had been a dream of mine for years. I’ve stepped into a terrific community of successful, big-hearted women who are changing the world and helping each other along the way. It’s the best decision I could have made, for my business, my sanity and my health!”
