FOUNDER’S MESSAGE LET’S TALK ABOUT leadership. It's a major topic
educational courses, and by self-help gurus. It’s on the minds of almost everyone in an effective organisation. Why? Successful leadership is the key to successful organisations. There’s only one problem: Many people confuse being a leader with being a boss. These two are not the same. Simply having rank or power does not enshrine someone with leadership. Almost anybody can ruthlessly demand and intimidate from behind a desk. However, a leader does not sit behind a desk. A leader is out front, doing the work, setting the example for others to do the same. As our convention speaker from last year, Darren Hardy, says, “A boss and a manager prod from behind, but a leader pulls from up front.” A leader is not a taskmaster. A leader is someone who inspires others to be better and to do more. It’s not done with threats but through empowering individuals and groups to reach their highest potential. Leadership revolves around humility and a clear, concise vision. Leadership is about developing people, not growing bottom lines or checking off to-do

An energetic performance by popular Croatian singer Goran Karan, who composed a song dedicated to Young Living, was the highlight of the evening and thanks to the melodic harmonies and Goran’s fantastic voice hundreds of Members joined Gary and Mary in dancing the night away. Gary later even said that the concert “was one of the best live performances I have ever seen”!
Croatian highland, the farm is expanding fast and will soon see two harvests each year to ensure sustainable and long-term availability of this precious oil, all whilst fulfilling our quality promise. After hearing more about the farm from Gary, our Members could plant their own helichrysum seedling experiencing Young Living’s Seed to Seal for themselves – an amazing way to end this truly inspirational trip of a lifetime! If you too want to feel the energy of a Young Living event, keep an eye out for future newsletters and updates on our website!
WORLD PEACE CARAVAN WPC Revisits Ancient Journey
IMAGINE YOURSELF WALKING through a narrow, deep gorge framed by staggering stone cliffs that close in on both sides. As the gorge slowly descends, you pass the intricate rock-cut architecture and the aqueduct system that once carried water to the city below. Caves are carved high into the walls, and your imagination churns as you think of what secrets they hold when, suddenly, the walls open. You’ve arrived at the breathtaking ancient city of Petra, a city filled with hundreds of historical treasures, one of which is the Treasury that stands as a symbol of the ancient trade route long forgotten. Now is your opportunity to experience this vivid image firsthand on the adventure of a lifetime. Join D. Gary Young as he leads a group of travellers from around the world on the World Peace Caravan. This amazing journey will depart from Petra, Jordan, and travel into the holy city of Jerusalem. This caravan will unite the world in a powerful journey through lands rich in history and beauty. The ancient city of Petra—a national treasure of Jordan—is just one of the many fascinating and historic sites you will experience along the way. Other sites will include Lot’s Cave, the Baptism Site, the Dead Sea Museum, Jericho, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem. There is still time to register! Join the hundreds of other Young Living members and their families on all or part of this adventure, which will include the World Peace Caravan, the World Peace Conference, and the World Peace Concert. For more information and to register, please visit WorldPeaceCaravan.org today.

ST. MARIES: The fields at the St. Maries farm continue to be dormant and inaccessible due to mud and saturated ground conditions caused by rain. Work in the fields should resume within the next weeks, weather permitting. HIGHLAND FLATS: Workers at the Highland Flats farm in Naples, Idaho, have started distilling blue spruce again, and the floral water recirculation system is also up and running. Workers from St. Maries are in Highland Flats helping to plant balsam fir saplings and ship trees that will be planted on other farms. ECUADOR: Employees at the Ecuador farm have been harvesting and distilling ylang ylang and mastrante, planting dorado azul and oregano, and distilling ocotea and palo santo. MONA: Employees at the Mona farm are busy preparing and planting for spring. The farm was recently home to the annual Easter Eggstravaganza and welcomed more than 1,800 members, guests, and patrons to the one-of-a-kind celebration. The horses were an event highlight, with the addition of three new Percherons and two new Friesian horses born at the farm.

The boiler and distillery are up and running, already producing more than 650 litres of black spruce! Because of this farm, we will not have to worry about our future Valor quantities ever again. In addition to black spruce, the farm will also soon grow einkorn grain and blue yarrow.

LIVIN' HER DREAM! Young Living member Hailey Aliff has found something special: a calling that combines her passions– midwifery and essential oils–into astonishing success. At 25, this Diamond is living her dreams and reaping all the rewards of the Young Living lifestyle. What are your three best tips that every Young Living member can use? The top three tips I share with all of my team members who want to take their Young Living business to the next level are: 1. Learn about the product. Develop your own personal testimonies. Get on Essential Rewards and incorporate oils into your life more and more every single month. You will have so much personal experience to give! 2. Share the product generously. I cannot tell you how many people ordered a Starter Kit after I let them borrow the oils as they needed them. 3. Teach, teach, teach. My sister and I realised no one in our area was offering essential oil classes, and we have seen enormous growth in our OIL SISTA organization by just teaching as many classes as often as possible. What does Young Living mean to you? Integrity, wellness, abundance, and purity, to name a few. It is a company that cares first and foremost about helping people and changing their lives for the better. This philosophy radiates from Gary and Mary Young and permeates to the rest of the company. For my husband and me, Young Living has not only brought blessings to our wellness but has also provided us with financial freedom. What are your three favourite products? My husband, Jeremy, and I love NingXia Red®! We drink it every single day! We also make sure to have a bottle of Thieves® and Lavender at our house at all times. There are quite a few oils that we use on a daily basis, but we can’t imagine life anymore without those three products!
