Do I have to live in the United States to participate?
No, you don’t have to live in the United States to become a US Founder 2.0. However, you’ll only earn points from personal enrollees who live in the United States and have US doTERRA accounts. To earn rank advancement points from your personal enrollees’ achievements, 90% or more of their qualifying volume must come from the United States.
Is there an end date for US Founders Club 2.0?
This program will end the earlier of 200 people reaching 1,000 points and thus qualified to be US Founders 2.0, or August 31, 2023.
If I qualify as a US Founder 2.0, when will I receive my first Founders bonus?
The Founders bonuses are paid out in January or February each calendar year.
How is the 90% US qualifying volume calculated?

Once I reach 1,000 points and qualify as a US Founder 2.0, how do I maintain my spot?
To continue being recognized and compensated as a Founder, you must maintain at least Gold rank 8 months in the calendar year through 2023 and 2024. You’ll be allowed a grace period of four months out of every calendar year, meaning you can be at a lower rank than what’s required for four out of the 12 months of the calendar year and still remain a Founder. The four months don’t have to be consecutive. Rank requirements after 2025 will be added at a later time. The year you hit Founders 2.0, you do not have to hit any maintenance requirements, but we do encourage that you keep your rank up, as the year following you will be required to meet the 8 out of 12 months of Gold or higher to continue being recognized and compensated as a Founder. For these qualifications, your personally enrolled US leaders will need to continue maintaining 90% of their qualifying volume in the United States. Any changes to the ongoing maintenance qualifications will be communicated with ample notice.
