A Foundation of Care

BY ERIN PATEL, SCHAUMBURG, ILLINOIS, USA


 My approach to doTERRA has never been to sell, but rather to educate. The interactions I have with others are driven by something so much more important than a financial transaction. 

Make It Personal

I’ll be honest: I don’t like to sell. I could never stomach the idea of trying to convince someone to buy something that I don’t believe in myself. My approach to doTERRA has never been to sell, but rather to educate. The interactions I have with others are driven by something so much more important than a financial transaction. Why do I spend so much time in classes, retreats, conferences, and working with teammates and reaching out to new people? In a word—empowerment. Just as when I entered nursing, I have an opportunity to help people take control over their health.

I found doTERRA to be a gateway to natural health, and watching the “light bulb” turn on for people as they come to the same realization is endlessly satisfying for me. Seeing these people empowered to pass this knowledge on to others is what doTERRA is all about. We can achieve our health goals and our financial goals, and help the people we love do the same.

A Family Affair

The most critical piece of advice that I can offer anyone moving forward as a builder in doTERRA is to make it a team effort. We are here to help each other, and I always ask my team members to share their goals with each other. As someone nears a goal, we all come together to help him or her get there. We can all lean on each other, but I also believe in cultivating trust, dependability, and accountability among all the members of the team.

As interesting and satisfying as this work can be, we are all more successful when we make it fun. We don’t just work together— that is a key to success in any team. Getting out to have a group painting night or a wine tasting builds camaraderie and makes us a better team. Truly listening and caring for each other builds a strong cohesive network and lasting friendships.

These days, I don’t think “team” is even the right word. I think of the people I’ve met in this journey as my doTERRA family. We share the highs and lows of life together, giving each other the gifts of friendship and support. Of all the blessings that doTERRA has brought into my life, it is this that I am most grateful for.

Take a broad view of what you can achieve with doTERRA. The only limits are the ones you place on yourself. If you open yourself up to everything that is out there, you can take control of your health, earn additional income, and build new relationships that enrich each and every day of your life.
