Starting a new business can be daunting. Many times, there is a steep investment in a company. For example, if you want to start a franchise business like Subway or Chipotle and you would need about $200,000 in capital for franchise fees and upstart operating expenses. You would also be sacrificing a ton of time. You would be missing family adventures, too. The average franchise owner works much more than the average 40-50 hour work week. They often times double this national average. This is a large part of why most of us work the daily 9 to 5 for someone else. Someone who made the great sacrifice of time, money, and family to build the American Dream.
What if there were a way to build this legacy without the initial start up costs and time? What if you could actually build it with your family? It may surprise you to learn you can. Companies like Young Living have never made it easier to build the business of a lifetime with just passion and dedication to a product and healthy lifestyle. They are part of the not-so-new, but new-to-many MLM businesses in the United States. For those of an older generation, they may have been burned in the past by companies of old -- MLM companies disbanded by the government because they were a "pyramid scheme" (meaning only the people at the top actually made money), for younger generations, they may see MLMs as the "thing" of their mother's generation. Neither one accurately portrays MLMs of today. More so than ever, these thriving enterprises are a very real choice for anyone, young or old, man or woman, looking to grow a business where they are not held to the standards of today's work trends and grind. They offer real value, the ability to market and develop a business on your own timeline, and quite often, with little to no investment. Such is the case with Young Living.
So, what's the commitment? Becoming a member. It's really just as simple as that. Whether you pick the most basic option, the $45 membership kit (comes with one oil, some samples, and a one year membership) or the most bang for your buck (comes with over $300 in oils, diffuser, and samples for just $160), you have the ability to share and grow a business. They really couldn't have made it any easier. Many companies make you commit to the business and have a monthly autoship order of $100-300 in product. Not Young Living. If you want to make your full commission, buy $100 in products you love. Not expecting a commission? No need to purchase. No monthly commitments, minimums, or quotas to make here. Just love it, share it. The end. Before you know it, you will be growing a spectacular business and changing one family at a time. Isn't it worth a try?
Relationships are the foundation of all we do. Looking at building an MLM business is no different. You can have all the plans, programs, books, and best ideas there are, but if you haven't built the relationships, you have nothing. By laying the foundation of relationship between you and your potential members, you are creating an environment where friendship is the key element. Out of this friendship will grow a very strong relationship with not only you, but Young Living. Think about your friends. Either A) they are much like you and share the same interests, or B) they are nothing like you, but they like you and will try something based on your recommendation. If you are passionate about Young Living as a product and a business, chances are, your enthusiasm and love of Young Living will be contagious. Including your friends in on your YL lifestyle is not being a salesperson. It is sharing your passion, sharing something you believe in, sharing something that can change lives. You owe it to your friends and family to share.
Think about five family members or friends you can start sharing with now. It is easier to practice on friends and family, than strangers. Show them what makes this company, their farms, their products, and their mission so different from every other company out there.
