Volume 3.11 November 2013

Founder’s Message BEING PART OF Young Living this year has been exciting! At the beginning of 2013, I challenged our executive team to take us to heights never before imagined in our company. We set goals; we brought in the right people; and we worked tirelessly to achieve the goals I was expecting. With your help, Young Living has experienced remarkable success this year, even beyond my expectations! Throughout this year as I watched our leaders overcome obstacles and attain accomplishments that were once thought impossible, I noticed three attributes that if applied every single day can change your life. The first is the simplest: Be committed and actively engaged every day. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for success in your home or in the office, you simply cannot fail if you are committed. That is the key to success. Second, listen and learn everything you can from those around you. In any group, there is always something new to discover from someone there. Third, you have to work and help others while making it fun. Life is too short and too precious to let obstacles get in your way and keep you from being successful. Make greatness your goal and success your reward with happiness and joy. This is the time of the year when we turn our attention to the holiday season. We have so many blessings because of Young Living: health, financial freedom, family togetherness, and many others. Young Living offers something for everyone, and it is up to us to share the benefits and this wonderful opportunity.

DGYF: The Impact You Are Making A BIG THANK YOU goes to each monthly contributor and to everyone who has ever supported the D. Gary Young Foundation. Without you, the children of the Young Living Academy in Chongon, Ecuador, would have no place to receive a quality education. Your willingness to support this most-important cause is wonderfully inspiring! Below is an excerpt from an article written by professional travel and health copywriter Claudia Looi, who recently visited the Young Living Academy. You can read her richly descriptive article in its entirety at Claudia writes: . . . Thirteen-year-old Salomon is one of 177 students enrolled in the Young Living Academy in Chongon, Ecuador. We went to his home to meet with his single dad, who single-handedly takes care of five boys ages four to 13 years old. . . . Three of his children are in public school, and the youngest hangs out with him while he works. . . . I saw a difference between Salomon and his brothers. He looks happier and more focused compared to his 10-year-old brother. You may ask, “Why aren’t his three siblings in Young Living Academy?” I asked the same question, too. Each year Young Living Academy has more applicants than space in the school. As it is right now, the classrooms have been divided to add more students each year. Johnny Oyola Burgos, the coordinator of the Young Living Academy, hopes to see more classrooms built.

The question is, “Where will these students go for high school?”

There was not a hint of sadness or poverty in Maria Jose. She sat in front of me in the van as we headed toward Chongon to visit her single mom, Melba. Maria Jose is 10 and has four brothers and sisters ranging from 18 months to 12 years old. Her 18-month-old sister has Down syndrome. The main part of the home has a ripped canvas roof that leaks when it rains. This room has the kitchen, dining, and laundry area. They have another room with a proper roof but no windows, where all the children and mom sleep together. Melba showed so much gratitude for the Academy. I couldn’t contain myself while visiting this family. Tears began to form in my eyes. I’ve been to 37 countries and have seen poverty in many nations, but to see a single mom caring for a helpless child, havMaria Jose with her mom and sister. ing five children under her care, living in an unsafe shelter, and still looking happy and showing gratitude when we visited was beyond my comprehension. Here we were complaining about the humidity, heat, and lack of toilets while traveling. . . . Salomon with his dad and siblings.

I can’t help but wonder what Maria Jose’s future will look like. Can you?

Help us make a difference today! For as little as $3 a month, you can join Jacob’s Team and help us build a high school. Visit and impact a child’s future forever!

Young Living’s World News SINGAPORE

This November the South East Asia region will launch its Sky High Rewards Challenge, a point-based incentive program open to all members within South East Asia. Rewards include trips to the Simiane-la-Rotonde farm in France and the 2014 International Grand Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah! For more details, visit the Young Living Singapore website at youngliving. com/en_SG. Everyone is invited to attend the Malaysia Founders Meeting on December 14 in Penang, Malaysia.

We had our largest event—the Japan Convention—last month in Tokyo, and the room was jam-packed with many new and existing Japanese distributors and guests. All of the participants had the opportunity to listen to Gary Young’s presentation about the Young Living philosophy and the latest product developments. One of the most exciting moments was when Gary spoke about the benefits of the newly launched OmegaGize3™. Guest speaker Melissa Shelton gave presentations regarding the efficacy of essential oils on pets. Thanks to this information, Japan distributors see an enormous possibility for the natural pet-care market. Also well received were presentations by Craig Aramaki, Young Living CMO, and Jared Turner, Young Living CSO. Every Japanese distributor is feeling very confident about Young Living’s bright future in Japan.


Australia has launched its new product-sharing program—the Product Discovery Program—as well as the new Integrated Business Development System across five major cities. The Product Discovery Program is designed to allow interested people to try products before they buy them and experience our full range of products through various product workshops. The two-day product conferences were hugely successful: the workshop kit sold out within one hour at the first conference, and each city’s conference sold out, blowing away expectations. There is an energy and excitement among Young Living distributors in Australia as we open up new multibillion-dollar markets that have never been tapped into before. Coupled with this launch is a growth incentive to take top distributors on the ultimate African adventure to witness one of the wonders of the world: the migration of more than 1 million wildebeest across the African plains. E-mail au for more information.


Young Living Canada saw record growth again in September and is confident that this growth will continue. The Canadian leadership is dedicated to getting out and sharing essential oils with everyone they meet. Recently, the Young Living Canada corporate staff has been holding many Introductory Meetings to promote interest and growth in the region. These meetings have been a great success, with high attendance and many people signing up as new Young Living distributors.

South East Asia: Historic Convention

YOUNG LIVING’S GLOBAL reach continues to expand at an increasingly rapid rate, and South East Asia is a hotbed for this growth.

Guests and Young Living leaders from all over the world, including the U.S., Austria, Hong Kong, Japan, and Australia, converged on this historic event to laud the inspiring work of the region. The many milestones South East Asia collectively achieved include 175 percent year-to-date growth; the announced grand opening of Malaysia; and over just the past year, the emergence of 40 new Silvers, 10 new Golds, 2 new Platinums, and Asia’s very first Crown Diamond, Frances Fuller. Keynote speakers delivered informative and inspiring talks, each of them leaving Young Living leaders from across the world impactful lessons and insights. meet in Singapore in October. The convention was a great experience for all. Guests had the most amazing time at the mini Product Expo trying all the different oils and beauty products—and getting their own NingXia Red® slushies! Most of all, everyone was excited about the launch of the new Believe™ essential oil blend, Essential Oil Sample Packets, and NingXia Nitro. The regional office would like to extend its deepest gratitude to all those who made this event possible with their hard work, support, passion, and dedication! The next big event to look forward to is the Malaysia Founders Meeting on December 14. Everyone is invited to attend this groundbreaking event! page 4
