My Why? Why Young Living? Why Network Marketing?
Hello and welcome, my name is Denise. I am so glad you decided to spend some of your valuable time and come meet me. I want to share with you how I came to be where I am at with Young Living and in a NWM (Network Marketing) company. I actually think it should be called "relationship marketing" since this business is all about relationships. I am a God fearing, Jesus following, Bible believing wife, mother, grandmother, friend, avid YLEO (Young Living Essential Oil) user and living a sober chemical free healthier me abundant life. Wow, that was a mouthful, huh? I had so much more I wanted to say, but I thought I better keep it short, LOL.
Without going into great detail, let me just say that I was stuck in an addiction for 22 years of my life and now celebrate 3 years sober and what an amazing life it is. I used to be a Medical Assistant, 2 years in Pediatrics and 2 years in OB/GYN. I loved my job and it was my everything, so much that it came before everything and everyone. Maybe that is why it was taken out of my life? I got put on permanent disability due to Degenerative Disc Disease (6 spinal fusions), a major car accident that almost claimed my life and some mental issues (no need to go into that right now).
At first, not working and having a monthly income was great, but as time went on, what little bit of self-esteem or worth was quickly fading. So basically, I had a 7 year stretch where I say I was sober, but honestly I had just changed one addiction with several others that I was able to function on (for a bit). But after being out of work and seeing myself through very pessimistic attitude and eyes, I quickly picked up my Meth addiction and added it to the Alcohol, Marijuana, Opiates and Tobacco. WOW!! What a hot mess!! OK....just a mess.
After reaching my bottom and with some tough love from my husband, family, drug counselor, Pastor and some great sisters in Christ coming along side of me to help me rebuild my life, I came out of the darkness and into the light. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour on May 18, 2013 along with my wonderful husband, Marc. Sober on July 17th and baptized on August 4, 2013. It has been a steady uphill climb every since and I am truly blessed.
About a year later, I accidentally stumbled upon an old friend through Facebook. I don't remember exactly, but I must have posted about all my back pain and sick and tired of being sick and tired and she messaged me to say she had something that she knew would help support my body for a healthier life. At this point, I was game to try anything since I was not wanting to use anything with harsh chemicals with many side effects. When she told me it was Essential Oils, I just thought, Oh great.....some of that black magic voodoo hippie juice! But then I decided since I had tried many other "dark" things that didn't help, why not give it ONE chance? ONE chance is all it took and I was hooked. The benefits I felt from just that one use of the pain cream was amazing, but I questioned if it really was these Essential oils or maybe a coincidence? As I started using the sample of RC and felt the support for my respiratory and immune systems too, I knew that this was no coincidence. I stopped the pain cream for a couple of days and pain level went up, then I started it again and it went down.....YEP.....it's this voodoo stuff. I no longer think it is voodoo, it is the lifeblood of the plant that has amazing properties and God put them all here for us to use in a smart healthy way to support our bodies just like it does for the plant.
I knew immediately that I wanted to do the business side of Young Living even before I got my kit, which took me 3 months to save for. Most people don't come to do the business side like I did, but I am a very different person, LOL. I just knew that if these products helped me so quickly that I wanted in on this. I missed and wanted that rewarding feeling of helping others with their health and I wanted to get off of SSI so that I could feel good about myself and be self-reliant, while contributing to the work force. I didn't want to struggle any longer, living paycheck to paycheck. And though I am not quite out of that cycle, I am well on my way. Every month I have increase my paycheck a little by little, but I realized in May of 2016, this year, that I had been treating this as a hobby and not giving it the business respect that it or I deserve. That was a turning point for my business and things have started to pick up.
I am excited and pumped to see what is in store for my future with Young Living. I am creating strong empowering friendships with like minded people who are so positive, nurturing and push me to become more than I had ever dreamed I could be. But what has stood out and struck me the most about doing this business, is the personal growth that I am going through. The changes that are taking place in me are truly astounding. Talk about blowing my mind. Though none of this would be possible without the blood saving grace of Jesus Christ, I am thankful for this company who loves like Jesus and has a heart for mankind, which shows through their outreach support programs. D. Gary Young, founded this company over 20 years ago and the products speak for his love, passion and integrity for the highest and purest quality products for me, you and all the world.
