Rise to Elite


Are you ready to launch your doTERRA business?

Welcome to Rise to Elite! Every doTERRA rank is built on the foundation of Elite. This program is a leader-led, corporate-supported initiative meant to help jumpstart new builders to Elite. This program is available in the North American market (US and Canada).

A Silver or higher may sponsor one new builder in the program. The Rise to Elite program is patterned after the successful Six Weeks to Elite program, developed by field leaders and taught in the Business Builder Guide.

Important Dates

Qualifications

Sponsors are Silver and above leaders who have qualified twice for Silver or above in the past six months (November 2020–April 2021 for first session). Additionally, the sponsor needs to commit to training and assisting the new Wellness Advocate with reaching Elite!
