Molded for the Better
While working at the Bellagio spa, Jeanne McMurry was introduced to doTERRA for the first time. She was impressed that they were pure enough to be taken internally and didn’t cause any adverse reactions for her clients like the essential oils she’d used before. When she later moved to Hawaii, she decided to start her own events business, and worked to include all the top quality products she had used at the spa, including doTERRA. She signed up for a wholesale account and started sharing the essential oils with friends and family in Hawaii.
Jeanne was resistant to getting involved in the business side of doTERRA, though she signed up many people on LRP. It wasn’t until she got a divorce and needed a way to support her son that she decided to really give the business a try. She started out not making enough to cover the cost of food in Hawaii, then within six months was making nearly ten times as much. She decided to move to Nebraska, where she had grown up, to help her parents grow a business as well. The next month she hit Diamond.
Because she didn’t start out with a business mindset, Jeanne had a lot of cleaning up to do in her structure. She has since learned the importance of listening to her upline. She says, “They would tell me, ‘You’ve got to structure so you can make more money and help more people.’ When I finally listened, I had to go through and ask who wanted to do this as a business and who didn’t, and go from there.” She has shared so much that her volume is already double what it needs to be to be a Presidential Diamond. She says, “I better be Presidential Diamond someday soon— I have to catch up with my volume.”
Jeanne knows it’s important to help her leaders find what their talents are. She says, “I’m so glad I was a cheerleader in high school, because as a leader you have to bring life back into the members of your team and remind them of who they really are. It’s so neat to see them shine. Anyone can do this whether they’re shy or outgoing. You just have to find what their talent is and help bring it out.”
With doTERRA, Jeanne has been able to build a stable income not only for herself but for her family and friends who need it. She says, “I wake up every day and thank God for giving us doTERRA. I’m able to be a better person because it’s molding me every day and giving me the opportunity to help other people. I’m just so thankful.”
