The community of Young Living members is amazing. There are SO many resources available. Many members have a lot of experience (the company has been around for 25+ years), and the group is very encouraging. No one is pushy or salesy (at least not on my team), and everyone wants to genuinely help other people!
The biggest “challenge” I face, quite honestly, is the “skeptics.” But it isn’t really a challenge for me because I was a skeptic once too! I always share my honest story, my testimonials, and why I genuinely love the products and how they work best for our family. I also realize that Young Living isn’t going to be for everyone, and that’s okay. I won’t ever pressure someone or make them feel like they HAVE to agree with me or like they HAVE to try it.
I love that this “business” gives me flexibility and is ready and waiting for me no matter what. Some business builders work a 40 hour work week doing this job, others much less. I have ebbed and flowed in the past two years. At my peak, I was putting in about 20 hours a week. Right now, I’m in a season of life with two kids where I can’t devote that much time to the business… so I’m only at about 5 hours a week right now (and yet, because of the structure and the residual income, I still make enough to help supplement income for my family.) I love that!
If you’re thinking of getting started with a company like Young Living, I highly suggest you connect with a team that you feel comfortable with and learn as much as you can. Use the products. That’s the BIGGEST thing. Use them and learn as much as you can about them! The more you learn, the more you’ll be able to share with others.
