How has doTERRA empowered you?

When I started my doTERRA journey my life was anything but balanced - I was a competitive body builder, worked fulltime and had two small children. I was go, go, go and ended up burnt out.

doTERRA products have been a huge support to me physically and emotionally to return to balance.

Through sharing my love of doTERRA with others I have been able to give up my corporate job and now do what I love full time. I now spend my time as I choose, whether that be growing my business, attending school excursions, sitting on the beach or meeting with friends.

I enjoy helping others to do the same, to live a life of balance. I love to bring out the best in people, to see them reach their dreams and to do so in a way that is totally authentic for them.

How has doTERRA empowered you?

When I look back at the breadcrumbs and my passion around women's sovereignty, social justice, diversity and empowerment - doTERRA has been the thread that links them all.  I am constantly inspired by the kick-ass women who lead in this business so openheartedly.

I want to be one of the first women of colour to be Diamond and above in doTERRA Australia. I want to show others like me that it can be done.

doTERRA has provided me, a woman of colour – a spark to glow. For the first time I feel like I am surrounded by a culture with the heart, ethics and platform to have a voice and be visible as I step into my own leadership.

How has doTERRA empowered you?

I am deeply grateful for the ripple effect that doTERRA is having on the empowerment of women around the world, it is so palpable, you can feel it. 

It is not lost on me that I am hugely privileged to be in a position to have a doTERRA business, as I understand that many women are not able to do so freely. 

doTERRA has provided my family with freedom, flexibility and for me deeply meaningful work connecting with other women and creating community. I no longer have to decide between a career or raising a family, the two go hand in hand. Knowing that the oils that we love, use and share are empowering women to participate fully in economic life to build stronger economies and improve the quality of life for themselves, their children and their communities around the world means so much.

We have recently started a local Days for Girls Team to give something back and extend the ripple out as far as possible.

How has doTERRA empowered you?

I used to have dreams. But now I have goals and a vision. 

Being part of doTERRA has inspired me to stop dreaming and start doing. I love that I am not alone, that I have a community of other men and women who will lift me up. 

We all need to belong to something bigger than ourselves and when I found these oils I found what was missing. I'm building my business not just for me, but for the women and children around me to see what is possible when you create a vision.

How has doTERRA empowered you?

From a spiraling downward need to an incredible empowering journey incorporating doTERRA ‘gifts of the earth’  I am now able to live what I feel is my true life purpose.  

I am the ‘master of my ship’ and I could not be happier where daily wellness habits are fully embedded in my life and aside to this the opportunity to educate and empower others who are open to natural health and wellness solutions is so beautiful. 

The doTERRA culture of inspiring others and serving with heart is beyond amazing. I am grateful doTERRA found me as now it is not what I do but who I am that defines me and my vision is to make a difference.
