Rosie Greaney & Adam Copp
While on a business trip in the US from Australia, Rosie Greaney was introduced to essential oils by Roger and Cindy Anthony. Once she saw the results, both Rosie and her husband, Adam, started asking for more. When they flew back to Australia, they met with Seth Risenmay who explained the business opportunity to them as well. They were impressed with the culture of doTERRA and the quality of the oils right away.
Rosie began sharing the oils, but they weren’t focused on the strategy and structure behind the business until 2013 when Rosie moved back to Europe with their 10-week old son. There were no jobs in her country due to the recession, so Adam flew back and forth between home and Australia every seven weeks to see them. Rosie knew the local market was in need of essential oils, so when Seth reached out to them and asked if they were ready to create financial freedom in their lives, they committed to build the business.
Adam and Rosie made sure to take full responsibility for their business from the start, but they had great support from their upline, their family, and from the community. Adam says, “The culture is great. A lot of really great local people actively helped Rosie organize all her initial classes with no self-interest. That was a great starting point for us in Europe.” Since that time, their team has spread across Europe and Australia.
They always wanted to be Diamond for their own independence, for their team’s belief in the opportunity, and to have an impact on people’s health and wellness. They decided they were going to do it no matter what it took and consciously tried to create successful habits and routines in their everyday life. From there, it was a gradual progression. Their advice: “Don’t treat your doTERRA business like it lives and operates in a parallel universe where challenge and adversity do not exist. Think about someone who earns as much as a Diamond in the corporate world and what challenges they have to overcome to put it in perspective. Have belief in yourself and your team.”
Now, Rosie and Adam have been given back their freedom and their family. They say, “We suffered with having our choices limited and lived under hard circumstances. No one owns us anymore. It’s worth all the fear and all the time and money you invest. We made doTERRA our number one priority above everything else for just over two years, and now we have the rest of our lives to prioritize our ideal life around our business. It’s literally life-changing.”
“In the beginning, we held a lot of classes, at least two to three a week, plus one-on-ones. We try to do two classes per month now that are well-prepared and have great content. Our main way of sharing is through one-on-ones. We find them more personable and effective. We also try to share oils with five people a week.”
“A lot of people are scared to follow up, but if you have taken the time to really get to know people and their needs, then when you follow up you will do it with the right intention. If someone has given you their time or invested in the product, the least you can do is follow up and provide support. Focus on what the person needs, not yourself.”
“We have found that allowing people to explore the business side of doTERRA on their own terms is powerful. If you let other people set the tempo and see that they can make their own choices, it takes the fear away from sharing. It is when we create expectations of what sharing or doing the business looks like to us that we fear rejection or let down.”
“Make it about their goals. Your goal is not enough for them to move. Sometimes that means slowing down, but if they are not running for their goals you cannot drag them. It’s also really important to work closely with your team early on when they start and build a strong relationship.”
