Success through Service

Neal & Erin Anderson


Karina Sammons, who is currently a Blue Diamond, met Neal and Erin Anderson selling books door-to-door during a summer in college. Four years ago, Karina introduced Erin to doTERRA. Erin had always lived a natural lifestyle and was interested in learning more about essential oils. She watched a webinar online and was the first person doTERRA shipped oils to in North Carolina.

For two years, Erin sat on Karina’s top line as only a user, even as she shared with her friends and family. When Erin decided to start building with more intention, Karina reached out to her for help with Diamond Club. Karina came to North Carolina, and Erin saw a class taught for the first time. Within a few months, Erin was Silver.

For Erin, it’s always been important to only focus on what she can control. She says, “My responsibility is to go out and tell people about another way to take care of themselves. If they get excited about it, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s OK. We need to be service-minded, focus on who we can help, and share from the heart.”

“If you focus on service, you won’t be nervous.” —Erin

For Erin, it’s always been important to only focus on what she can control. She says, “My responsibility is to go out and tell people about another way to take care of themselves. If they get excited about it, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s OK. We need to be service-minded, focus on who we can help, and share from the heart.” Neal came from a business background and was excited about the business opportunity before Erin even considered it an option. He says, “I understood that this business has a high retention rate, a product that is sharable, and brings joy into people’s lives. I said to her, ‘Why don’t you just do this fulltime?’” Eventually, Neal was able to join Erin as well. Now, they’re both enjoying their time freedom, residual income, and the opportunity to serve others.

The Andersons have seen that a big part of their success comes from believing in people more than they believe in themselves. Neal says, “It’s seeing people not for what they are now, but what they can become.” Erin adds, “A lot of people don’t think they can be successful. You’ve got to be that belief level for them. You have to focus on what your people are good at, build on those strengths, and then work on their weaknesses. Don’t be afraid to push, challenge, and encourage people, but also let them evolve and mature in the way that they want to.”

They are grateful for the changes doTERRA has brought to their lives and for what they’ve been able to teach their children through the process. Erin says, “They’ve seen the joy, the struggles, the tears, and the laughter. They saw me set goals and work through them. Being able to instill in our kids what it takes to be successful is just as important to me as teaching them to read and write. This has changed our whole lifestyle.”
