An Open Path

Terumi Matsushima


Before doTERRA, Terumi Matsushima had always misunderstood network marketing as a pyramid scheme. She says, “I would have never imagined myself succeeding in a network marketing business. It was the products that interested me first.” After she heard her upline, Riyo Ogawa, talk passionately about the mission of doTERRA, she became excited about becoming a leader like Riyo. Terumi says, “The products truly bring happiness to people, and on top of that, I felt like I had a worthwhile business opportunity that I would have never had otherwise. I felt good about joining doTERRA from the bottom of my heart.”

Terumi is happy that she is able to share the healing power of essential oils with others and contribute to society through her business at the same time. She is proud to work for a company that isn’t focused on money. Terumi loves that she is able to work for not only her success, but that of her whole team. She says, “My team hopes for my success from the bottom of their hearts, and we work together as a team in order to succeed.”

When sharing the business opportunity, Terumi emphasizes that everyone must first love the products. She says, “Prioritize loving the products as your number one thing. Be frequent in using the products and building your business, and the path will surely open up. It is also important to understand and think about what others would want by putting yourself in their shoes.” Terumi helps people experience the products right on the spot and always makes sure to follow up frequently with those she has shared with.

Terumi knows it’s important to share with her team why she puts so much effort into her doTERRA business, and what she plans to do with her success. She says, “Those things will add more meaning to the business for them and will strengthen their own resolve to do the business as well.” Terumi focuses on taking time with each of her teammates personally, even those that live far away.  She says, “Reaching Diamond requires a commitment to become a true leader and to act on it.” She knows that success is an option for everyone, but that those who chose to put their all into doTERRA are truly blessed and lucky. Terumi’s advice to those striving to reach great heights with doTERRA is: “Never give up, be consistent, and the path will surely open up for you.”
