Being Socially Responsible

by Betsy Holmes Founder of Columbus, Ohio


My Inspiration

When I was 13, I went on a mission trip to Thailand. As a teenager, I didn’t think I had much to offer. I soon realized that I was making a significant difference just by giving my time. It was a truly rewarding experience. I realized that whether we are in need or not we are all human, and we all need help. I learned that sometimes those whom I was “serving” had more to offer me than I had to offer them. They taught me many valuable life lessons.

I continued to do mission trips every summer until I graduated. I served in other countries like India and Vietnam, and other places throughout the Middle East. Those trips inspired me and opened my eyes to the opportunities to serve around the world.

Words of Advice

Start Where You Are

I know a lot of people who want to have a positive impact, but don't know where to start. I've learned that you start where you are. You can absolutely change the world by changing the neighborhood you live in.

Know Your Value

People often believe that what they have to offer won't make a difference. The truth is that everyone is valuable. You don't have to have money to make a difference, just a willing heart. There are people already doing the things we wish we could; our job is to support them.

Bring Awareness

Tell the story of those who are struggling. Bring awareness to their circumstances and their needs. Work as a team to collectively give in all the ways available. Pool your resources and your time.

Share the Product

doTERRA provides the perfect opportunity to act. We have a product that has the power to bring hope to the destitute. All we need to do is something as simple as sharing a drop of essential oil with someone in need.

When you give of yourself and your resources to those in need, the biggest change that occurs is surprisingly not with the world, but with yourself. Let the ripple effect begin!
