Turn it Around

Kendra Bodine has been using essential oils for about 15 years, but when she found doTERRA she was impressed by the quality and immediately enrolled with a $500 kit. Kendra and her husband, Jon, remained only users. Their interest in the business opportunity was piqued one day when they were driving up to Yellowstone and stopped at the doTERRA corporate office in Utah. They ended up meeting with Dave Stirling and Greg Cook for two and half hours.

At this meeting, Jon repeatedly asked the executives why doTERRA had to be a multilevel marketing company. 


He had been approached aggressively so many times about joining other multilevel companies that he had been completely turned off by them. Dave told him, “We had to do it this way because we needed to get these products into people’s homes. If I have it on a shelf in a store, they’re not going to know what to do with it.” By the end of the meeting, both Jon and Kendra were confident in the integrity of the doTERRA executives, and the meeting planted the seed that led them to eventually growing their business.

Today, they are happy to be able to work together doing something they enjoy. Kendra has found her niche in the business as the oils expert. she is able to naturally connect with people on a one-on-one basis. Joh is the expert on the business and compensation plan. They’ve noticed that the dynamic of working together takes some adjusting, but they’re grateful for the opportunity. Kendra says, “There is no one I would rather work with than my husband. I know he has my back at all times.”

Jon had already retired from his previous career when they started their doTERRA business, but the Bodines found they still had a lot to learn. Kendra says, “It has been rough for us, because we had to dig in and change how we think. We thought we were OK before, but when we got into doTERRA we discovered all the self-development we needed.”

They’ve also discovered how fulfilling this kind of work can be. Jon says, “It’s neat to know that you can earn a living and help people at the same time. It gives you a great feeling when you get an oil bottle in somebody’s hands and they call you back later saying how much it helped them.” Kendra adds, “That’s what drives us to do this—when we look at the changes happening with other people and the changes happening with us. doTERRA has turned things around for us, and we’re so grateful.”


Don’t beat yourself up.

“I used to think I had to be good at the business side of things or there was something wrong with me. finally, I discovered I don’t have to be an expert at everything.”

Find your gifts.

“Sometimes we try to force ourselves to be what we’re not. It’s good to grow and expand, but we all have our gifts, and we need to use them.”

Be proud of who you are.

“I don’t need to be anyone else. I know I have the gift of connecting with other people, and I claim that now. I own who I am, and I’m proud of it.”
