A Heart Full of Service

Atanaska Adams

Growing up in Bulgaria, Atanaska Adams had always lived a natural lifestyle. She says, “We had a big piece of land, and we grew our own vegetables, fruit, and herbs. Ten years after arriving in the United States, I was reminded of how valuable that is and how much I love it.” Her best friend, Delmar Ahlstrom, who is now a Diamond as well, drove three hours to bring her essential oils in a time of need. Atanaska was impressed by her friend’s commitment and her act of service as well as how quickly and powerfully the oils helped her and her family. She quickly fell in love with dōTERRA.

“I had my first class two weeks later,” she says. “I wanted the whole world to know about these oils. I surprised myself because I am normally a very reserved, quiet person, but I decided to do this. I knew that this was for me.” Her upline, Marc Garrett, gave her a free ticket to convention and it was there that she met many leaders and the executives who she thought were wonderful people. She says, “I wanted to be a part of that too. I felt wonderful being among such generous, kind, loving, and intelligent people. I wanted to be like them.”

“My husband is supportive. He loves me and that is a big pa rt of my success. I do it for my family and because I love to help people.”

After growing up in a communist country, Atanaska has learned to value freedom. She says, “I’ve experienced not having freedom, and I knew that dōTERRA was something that could create freedom in my life, in the lives of those I love, and for everyone who has a desire for that. One of the reasons I do dōTERRA is to set free those who are imprisoned physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially.”

She is also motivated to leave a legacy for her children of achieving success while working for a worthy cause. Another reason she does it is to show gratitude for her family that still lives in Bulgaria. She says, “I want to support them with my financial freedom and show them how they can achieve that too, because they played a big role in shaping me into the person I am now.”

Atanaska does everything in her business with a heart full of love and service, and people can see that she cares about them. “I try to be as generous as possible with everyone. I always try to do or give more than is normal. I especially like to give away Modern Essentials books and an extra oil or two if I can, and I always seem to have more than enough.”

Today, she feels like she has become a better person through doTERRA. She says, “I feel better physically and emotionally, my relationships have improved, I enjoy more freedom, I have more friends, I feel more confident and thankful, and I can visit my family in Bulgaria a lot more. It’s just a beautiful thing. I am grateful every day.”
