Silver Wellness Advocate
Alison King is a doTERRA New Zealand Silver Leader who started her journey 3 years ago. Her relationship and love for essential oils changed when she was introduced to doTERRA at a dinner party she attended, celebrating the completion of a 6 month Coaching and Mentoring Programme. One of the other guests at the dinner party was doTERRA New Zealand Founder, Dr. Martha Nessler, who brought some of her own oils for everyone to smell.
“I used other essential oils previously, but doTERRA essential oils were something else. I vividly remember smelling Whisper® Blend for Women for the first time. I can’t describe the feeling, but it gave me an immediate shift in how I felt about myself. Martha gifted me her bottle so I could hold onto that feeling. A couple of weeks later I bought the Home Essentials Kit and to this day Whisper is still my all-time favourite oil.”
To help Alison reach the rank of Silver, she was gifted two Elites on her front line (but not her enrolments) “I’ll be forever grateful to my two up lines for doing this. The key for me was the belief they had in me, their observation that I was in the arena doing the work and my commitment to doing this as a business. I’ve held my rank for two months and going to the Courageous Leadership event helped me see that I deserve to be where I am and to own my rank”.
Alison shares some personal insights and wisdom from her own learnings through her doTERRA journey. “Live from a place of abundance, don’t fear people signing up with other leaders. There’s always more. It might seem to you that doTERRA is everywhere, but that’s a reflection of the people you interact with. There are so many opportunities for all of us. Keep growing your connections, that way you never run out of people to talk to. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses and collaborate with others so you can rise together”.
Three oils that stand out for Alison and that she uses daily are:
“I am motivated to be my own boss. At the same time, I am very aware that there are so many people in my neighbourhood who I can be supporting with oils, they just don’t know yet. My son is a big driver for me. He’s 7 and wants to be a doTERRA leader when he’s old enough. He’s created his own secret club where one of the rules is that you have to use essential oils. We have big goals and doTERRA is the catalyst for them”.
