You can’t cram for an opera the night before. The same applies to a dōTERRA organization.” Mentoring: “Every musician is unique, and the same is true for our leaders in dōTERRA. That’s what makes it fun. You have to find everyone’s unique qualities and capitalize on that. That’s where it all starts.” Sensitivity: “I have been trained to pick up on every technical issue a musician might have. As a mentor, I can’t fire hose them with all of their flaws right away or it would kill their fire. I also have to be sensitive to the blocks my dōTERRA leaders may have. I have to talk to them openly, ask the right questions, and build a relationship of trust so we can help each other.” No Attachments: “Opera productions cost millions of dollars to put on, but it’s not a money-making business. We give, we invest, and at the end of the day we have no control over how it’s received. This is true in both music and dōTERRA. We need to give without an emotional attachment to the outcome—unconditionally.” www.doterra.com 25
