dōTERRA is of Latin origin and means
"Gift of the Earth."
Monir & Tanja Daniëls
When Tanja Daniëls attended a breadmaking workshop, she was surprised to find that it included a section on essential oils. Later that evening, Tanja came home with a small sample of essential oils to which her husband, Monir, exclaimed, “That’s doTERRA! I saw that during a health fair and had completely forgotten that I wanted to buy.”
Tanja and Monir had occasionally used essential oils before, but only aromatically. When they heard that essential oils had effective benefits, it encouraged both of them to look deeper. They researched about doTERRA essential oils and got a couple oils to try. Tanja says, “I will never forget how that first experience felt. I put a few drops on the back of my neck, and after only a few minutes, I felt so refreshed and awake.” As a mom of two at the time, those feelings had been few and far between, and they truly made an impression on her.
Their success with the oils inspired Tanja and Monir to share and enroll others without knowing much about the business; they simply wanted to educate others about the benefits of essential oils, and that led them to great success. In fact, their upline even reached out to them and asked if they could teach their team how to do the business. After this invitation, Tanja and Monir studied the doTERRA business, and from there they say, “We agreed on going into the business together, and we never regretted it.”
Having met at a health coach training in Germany, Tanja and Monir have always shared an interest in natural health, and their various careers have given them experience in trainings and presentations—initially attracting them to the doTERRA business. Together, they use their mutual love for health, their experience, and their strong relationship to support one another in caring for their three children and building a team full of purpose and potential.
“I wish I had realized this from the beginning—everything you say to another person counts toward their experience in doTERRA. Your influence starts the moment you begin.”
“Discover what they can do for your own health and wellbeing. Only start sharing when you really feel passionate about helping improve the health of others and when you are confident about the products you want to share.”
“Do not think you need to know it all. Choose 10 oils or products to start with, and get to know them and how to use them so that you feel confident when you talk about them to others. Do not overwhelm yourself or others with too much information.”
“Your leaders will duplicate your actions. Be aware of that in every step along your way, and you will create an amazing career with doTERRA that you can be proud of. I always knew I would impact people’s lives through doTERRA, but I realized I already have and it’s happening now.”
“The key step to Diamond was taking time to get to know our leaders and their dreams and goals and to create a mentoring and support plan with them. Reaching Diamond is all about teamwork.”
