Time sure flies. It is hard to believe that winter is over and spring is here. Pretty soon we will see the flowers blooming and the trees waking up. Spring is a time where we start feeling revived and energized. Why not channel some of that energy into your business. This is a good time to make a plan for the next quarter of the year.


I always recommend to write out your goals. Write some long term goals but also goals for the next 3 months. Each week, write a list of action steps that you will do that will help you get to your longer term goals for your Young Living business.


You must make a plan and then WORK YOUR PLAN! I see far too many distributors sign up who seem to think that all they have to do is join, get a web site and their business will build itself as if by osmosis. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble but that’s not how business of any kind works.


Your Young Living distributor web site is sort of like an island in the middle of the ocean. If you don’t show people the way to your web site, no one will find it. People will either follow a link to your web site or type in the address from something YOU gave them. There is no other way. The nice thing is, with a little work, you can set up routes to your web site that will be in place even when you are doing other things. That way, your business is working whether you are working, playing or sleeping.


You need to be using 3 to 5 marketing techniques to build the business at all times. Even if you plan to do most of your marketing by face to face talking to people, keep it centered around your web site. The web site can be working, even when you are not working. When you talk to people you come across in a day’s travels, you should be giving people you talk to something with your web site on it. People can go to your web site later and get more information. Some will even sign up right away if you give them a way to do so.


marketingIt’s all a numbers game. The more people you talk to the more success you will have in your business. The more people you lead to your web site, the more people you will talk to. I recommend using both online and offline marketing.


Decide how fast you want to move your business forward. How many people will you talk to each day? How many bits of information will you give out with your web site on it? You can do this in a lot of ways. If you have a Facebook business page, share oil tips and connect with people online. If you have a blog, do at least one or 2 blog posts a week and share them on your Facebook page an other social media. If you are marketing offline, the key is to have some information to share and give it out liberally.


I love using “leave behinds.” Leave behinds are bits of information that will continue to work once you have left the conversation. It could be a brochure or a flyer. It should be something that will get them thinking about why they need Young Living Products. An example is the booklet, Rub A Dub. Is there Cancer in Your Tub?” You get the idea. Look for brochures and prospecting tools that get the prospect thinking about how Young Living Products will be a great benefit to their family.

Leave behinds are great for those days when you are in a hurry and don’t have time to get into lengthy conversations. Also goof for those days when you are not in the mood to talk to anyone. 😉 I have left many leave behinds with a hefty tip at a restaurant or hotel.

Make sure you put your web site and contact information on anything you give out!


Take MASSIVE Action. If you don’t take action, NOTHING will happen. Actually you need to take appropriate action. Some people fiddle with this and that doing “business tasks” and are not really doing action that amounts to making progress.


ACTION, ACTION, ACTION!!


Every morning ask yourself, “What can I do today to MOVE my business forward toward the success of my goals for my Young Living business?” What can I do today to get more people to my web site? What can I do to get more new Young Living members?


Lately I have the music from the new Lego Movie rolling around in my head. You have probably been hearing it a lot too. “Everything is Awesome.”


I decided to do a search to see what the words to the song are. The music makes me happy and feel like dancing. When I searched I found a YouTube video so I could hear the words to the full song. The words are very good and just the type of music I like to listen to when I need a motivating mood uplift.


Here are a few words from the song:


feeling-amazingEverything is awesome
Everything is cool when you’re part of a team
Everything is awesome
When we’re living our dream


Everything is better when we stick together
Side by side
You and I
Gonna win forever
Let’s party forever


Even when negative things happen:


Have you heard the news everyone’s talking
Life is good ’cause everything’s awesome
Lost my job, there’s a new opportunity
More free time for my awesome community
I feel more awesome than an awesome possum
Dip my body in chocolate frosting
Three years later wash off the frosting
Smelling like a blossom, Everything is awesome
Stepped in mud, got new brown shoes
It’s awesome to win and it’s awesome to lose



Your attitude affects the energy you are radiating when you talk to people and how they react to what you are saying. People will be more inclined to listen to a person who is radiating a happy attracting energy rather than one that is negative.


Your attitude affects your abundance. It affects your motivation. It affects how you work in your business. It affects everything!


Think about the way you greet people. A while back I wrote the article: How Do You Respond When Asked “How Are You?” I have heard all kinds of negative responses varying from “I’m fine” to “Not so good” or even much worse.


I used to say similar negative responses until I realized how powerful our words and feelings are and how much those things affect our success. Now I say something that will be uplifting to the other person but also to me. The words we use either bring us up or down. Every time we say something negative or complain about something, we are reenforcing that negative feeling in us. Even saying “I am fine” is one I like to avoid. I would rather say, “I am awesome.” Or something similar. Try it. Those words lift you up. Saying “I am fine” is sort of neutral. It does nothing to improve things. People say they are fine when they really aren’t feeling fine. Try saying “I am awesome” when you are in a group where you might get asked that question several times. I always find my mood lifting each time I say it.


Your attitude is very important to the amount of success you will have in your Young Living business. The words you use. The way you react to little set backs. The failures and little set backs are learning experiences. In my 17 years with Young Living I have see so many distributors give up because of setbacks, not knowing how to build their business and various other things that boil down to attitude. The only failure is giving up.


Don’t give up!


We are all different in our marketing styles. There are all kinds of ways to succeed in this business, even for people who don’t feel like sales people. Try different things until you find the marketing that fits your style.


I am reminded of Thomas Edison’s famous quote: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”


Listen to the music, Everything is Awesome” on YouTube.


Don’t give up!

Key to Success in Young Living BusinessThere is a secret that that successful marketers know that ensures they sponsor people every week and every month. It’s really not that much of a secret but to some distributors it seems to be a concept that is difficult to grasp.


The secret is having a marketing mindset. That means that you have marketing in mind at all times, even when you are doing things totally not related to business.


I can’t stress enough that you need to keep marketing in mind at all times. If you really want to earn income with your Young Living business, you need to have marketing in mind every day. What does that mean? It doesn’t mean pitching people all the time but it does mean that you are ready when the opportunity arises.


When you have marketing in mind, you are prepared, alert and actually looking for ways to promote. Promotion can be dropping seeds that may not produce something right away. It can be as simple as using oils in front of people and wearing certain oils whenever you are in public so people comment on how good you smell. I wear Abundance oil ALWAYS. It smells great and people comment on it. You can respond by saying, “It’s an essential oil blend called Abundance. It’s one of my favorite mood uplifting oils, plus it attracts good things.” Then . . .


Whenever you talk to people about why you smell so great, that’s an opening for a short comment on essential oils.


Don’t forget to use oils regularly in front of people and be prepared to respond with a short comment to see if there is interest. Always carry information to give people who are interested. This information must have your contact info and web site.


There are many orphans every month because of people who talked with someone about Young Living Essential Oils but ended the conversation without giving anything that would help them know what to do next. They Google and find someone to enroll under. Prospect lost to another Young Living Distributor.


There are lots of ways to promote your Young Living business but you should always be using at least 3-5 marketing methods at all times. If you do this EVERY Day, and always keep marketing in mind, no matter what you are doing, you will be able to sponsor people EVERY month.
