Jeremy & Shanda Vandenbark
If you ask Shanda Vandenbark why she chose her doTERRA business, she’ll tell you the main reason is DigestZen®. This product changed her and her family’s life when they were searching for solutions for their son, and she is now passionate about sharing the effective, natural solutions available through doTERRA products.
For Shanda, it’s all about a promise she made to herself when she witnessed the amazing impact DigestZen had on her son. She says, “I promised myself at that moment that I would make a difference for every mom out there who needed hope. I’d make a difference for every voice who cried for relief.” In a way, Shanda thinks of it as giving someone a new pair of shoes. “I want to provide a path for people who are in my old shoes. They were tired and frustrated shoes, and I know there are easier-to-wear shoes. If this is someone you know, give them the gift of new shoes through sharing these beautiful oils.”
With this powerful motivation, Shanda has worked relentlessly to reach more people and to grow her team. One of the reasons Shanda loves the doTERRA business opportunity is that it’s a win-win situation for customers and builders. She explains, “My customers win with improved health. My leaders win with increased revenue. I win with means to support my family.” Shanda focuses on the wins and ensures that no one in her organization loses. This has helped her build a team driven to genuinely care for and serve as many people as possible.
“The gift of doTERRA is the opportunity to succeed regardless of circumstances or adversity.”
“One of the numbers I key in on each month is PV per person. If my PV per person is high, I know we’re doing a good job helping others. If it’s low, we need to skill up. Understanding and adjusting this number has changed how I talk to people, how my business runs, and how my team operates. It shows us how much someone has fallen in love with doTERRA.”
