The Mark of a Leader

During the 2014 International Grand Convention, Young Living Co-founder Mary Young shared her insights into what it takes to establish a lasting and successful Young Living business. Take our word for it, she has walked the walk as an extraordinarily successful network-marketing professional, and she knows exactly what she is talking about. As Mary said: I LOVE BEING a distributor. I love networking. I love conventions. I love all of these things because they are all centred around one thing: making people better. At Young Living, we have a great responsibility to share an opportunity that can heal people financially, bless them with greater physical health, and build lifelong relationships. What a blessing! It fills my soul with joy to see the success that all of you are having with Young Living today. A good leader always puts the people in his or her organisation first. The joy comes from watching them grow and becoming successful as well. When you become the leader, you become the servant of all. Success and rank advancements happen naturally when your desire is to help other people achieve their goals. Their success is your success, so it’s really about building success together. Being a distributor and owning your business can be as much fun as it is motivating. There is no magic to it. Success comes from desire, dedication, and “When you become the leader, you determination. It’s easy to tell someone else about your excitement and passion for new products and a become the servant of all. Success new opportunity. It’s all about sharing how you feel. and rank advancements happen Sharing those feelings is the beginning of building a naturally when your desire is to help business—the beginning of your success. Excitement and enthusiasm are very contagious and spread other people achieve their goals.” quickly. – Mary Young When you share a product or opportunity with new people, it’s important to be responsible for those new people, answering their questions, teaching them, and making sure they feel a part of your organisation until they feel confident enough to teach and build in their own organisation. It is extremely important to listen to their ideas and help them develop their business as they desire, offering only suggestions and opening their minds to other possibilities. When I sponsored people, I would make sure that all their needs were met and that they knew I was there for them. I would never send an email or newsletter until I had talked with each new person on the phone. Build the relationship first; then your emails and newsletters are welcomed. My business grew because they knew that I cared about them first. We had a lot of fun building together, even if only by phone; and conventions were like a great family reunion. I wanted everyone to be successful, and that was my goal. I always said that this business is fun only if everybody is making money. Get to know your people; love them and feel their spirit, and success will come in abundance to everyone. My greatest joy was to see the success of those in my organisation, not only financially, but to see them grow as leaders and develop leaders through their efforts of caring by example. The opportunity is here for anyone who wants it, and Young Living will continue to grow and be a force for good in the world if that growth is based on caring about each other.

Founder’s Message YOUNG LIVING IS doing amazing things right now. We are experiencing extraordinary growth, building more farms, and producing more products than ever before—all of which lead to helping more people build their dreams and create their own future. This is the vision Mary and I had when we started this great adventure! So much of our success is the result of phenomenal people who live the Young Living mission every day. For many of these members, it’s not about what they do, it’s about who they are. Their desire to help others vibrates in every fibre of their body, and they share what they feel with many people every day. To all of you who are diligently seeking to bless your life and the lives of those around you, I want you to know we love and appreciate you. Your loyalty to this cause is inspiring. You are the engine that is making this worldclass operation accelerate with astonishing growth. All of us on the corporate side are dedicated to helping you in all aspects of your business; and even with some bumps along the way with this unprecedented growth, we are finding solutions and making many impressive changes in order to help you get where you want to go with Young Living.

The Young Living Animal Whisperer FOR SO MANY, the daily rigours of work are a means to an end, a passionless pathway to an awakened weekend in which the masses simply work to live. But when Young Living member Lina Maria Lamos goes to work every day in Colombia, she’s doing the most important thing in her life. Lina Maria is an animal communicator. As someone who aids rescued animals through physical and emotional therapy, the lines between work and life are blurred. Each day Lina Maria embarks on a journey of discovery and fulfillment—for both she and the troubled animal. Over time, as in any relationship, loving bonds are created and strengthened, and trust builds. When trust forms, the ability to overcome obstacles quickly follows. “They are very easy to “I work with many animals, from work with because they cats and dogs to hippopotamuses; have this quality that allows but I work principally with horses,” Lina Maria says. “My mission is to them to accept the oils rescue the animals from the hurt without any prejudice.” they’re living with.” – Lina Maria Lamos As a Young Living member, Lina Maria has for years incorporated Young Living oils and the Raindrop Technique into her therapy. As now customary with every horse, the therapy begins with the Raindrop Technique, something that opens the emotional channels of connection. “To start with the Raindrop Technique is very important and necessary in my ability to connect with the horses and my ability to calm and soothe them,” she says. “It helps them to relax and to trust me when I’m doing therapy.” When the animal is ready, Lina Maria will introduce it to the oils in the Feelings Kit. “The animals are very simple,” explains Lina Maria. “They are very easy to work with because they have this quality that allows them to accept the oils without any prejudice.” In addition to the Raindrop Technique and the Freedom Kit, Lina Maria has also used Copaiba essential oil and DiGize, Trauma Life, and Joy essential oil blends during therapy. Joy, she says, is a favourite among the animals. “My life revolves around the animals and helping them. To help them be able to trust good people again is such an important part of what I do. This is my worth.”

I LOVE THE quote by Jerzy Kosinski: “The principle of true art is not to portray, but to evoke.” This is exactly what we want to achieve with the word “ART” in Young Living’s upgraded skin-care regimen. At Young Living, we believe that every person is naturally beautiful, with a pristine canvas. We also believe that the new ART skin-care regimen, with its carefully selected ingredients, will accomplish every person’s desire to look attractive, feel confident, and be ready to aim high. In the coming months, you will notice a design update to the ART skin-care line. In an effort to modernise and streamline the look, we’ve removed the two dots between the letters (A•R•T)—a subtle change that simplifies the ART acronym, Age Refining Technology. Young Living is always striving to bring truly genuine products that are as natural as possible. Along with those ingredients that have remained desirable for thousands of years, the latest research and innovation will keep product development always progressing to fulfill the Young Living mission and the dreams of Gary and Mary Young to bring health and beauty to every home.

Chip Kouwe, Young Living Diamond WHAT OTHER ESSENTIAL oil company would come all the way to British Columbia to buy land, move the earth, and build a distillery? Gary, Mary and their boys are here working side by side with us—what other owners would be doing this? That’s what drives me to help wherever I can. They needed some help, they asked, and we came. I’m able to do stuff like this because my beautiful wife Kathy (thanks, Toog! XOXO) started believing in Young Living 18 years ago and that has given us the financial freedom to be able to drop everything and come help our friends. You can do that when you don’t have to ask for time off! Being able to do work like this with a visionary like Gary is, for me, like being able to work along side Walt Disney or Henry Ford. It’s an experience of a lifetime for me. And I’m making new friends and am spending more time with my two best Young Living harvest brothers, Scott Schuler and Jim Powell. How could I not be passionate about all this!? Life is Good!
