NEW Kristann Gillies Highland, Utah, USA Leaders Create RA O E R ND dōT NEW dōTERRA DIAMOND DIA M Leaders K ristann Gillies spent two and a half years refusing to have anything to do with dōTERRA. She had been a big leader in other network marketing companies, “A leader doesn’t create followers. A leader creates more leaders.” and after several heart-breaking experiences vowed she would never do another one again. People would drop essential oils off at her home and she would throw them away. Then her health took a dramatic plunge, and it was an AromaTouch massage that left her with a feeling of peace like she hadn’t experienced in years. She said afterwards, “If I’m going to die, I want to die feeling like this.” Though she was going bankrupt with medical bills, she scraped enough money together to buy an Every Oil Kit. She still avoided the business, but became an avid user. Her friends and family became interested in the essential oils and wanted her to teach classes for them. Though she was sick and didn’t know how to teach a class, she did it to help them out. She says, “I tell people it doesn’t matter if you know anything or everything. Just go out and share these gifts. They bless everyone’s lives.” It was when Kristann’s health improved that she finally decided to really participate in the business. She says, “I felt like I had an obligation to give back to the whole world. I am so proud to be a part of dōTERRA, and I tell it to every person I know.” Her sister and her daughter were the only people she brought over from her previous network marketing businesses, but her dōTERRA business still grew quickly because she found the product so easy to share. 22 dōTERRA ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP I FALL 2014
