Eagar, ARIZONA, USA Architect Your Life S ND O R R Steve & Brenda Brown NEW dōTE NEW dōTERRA DIAMONDS A DIA M B renda Brown had always tried to live a good life. She raised and homeschooled four children, and her husband, Steve, worked hard at his career. She says, “I guess I was going to wait until the end of our lives and think, ‘Well, we did the best we could.’ I had no clue that you could be the architect of your own life.” That was, until she discovered dōTERRA. It was Brenda’s daughter who introduced her to essential oils, and once she saw their effectiveness she decided to get involved in the business opportunity. Though the Browns had sworn themselves off of network marketing years before, Brenda could tell there was something different about dōTERRA. Still, she never imagined she would reach Silver, let alone Diamond. It was after attending a major network marketing event that she realized she could make her life whatever she wanted it to be. She says, “I thought, ‘How would I want my end years to be if I could architect my life?’ That’s when it changed for me. I don’t have to accept whatever is good enough.” The Browns live in a small town of only a few thousand people. A lot of people there have a very small income. They have seen people make the huge sacrifice to bring dōTERRA into their lives and know that you can never underestimate the value of a small rural community. Brenda says, “In big cities you have a tremendous population, but your strength in a small town is trust.” When you’re familiar with them and their culture, people in small towns are often more likely to trust the value of what you’re sharing with them. 10 dōTERRA ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP I FALL 2014
