ND R R O dōTE Reid & Christy Hughes S NEW NEW dōTERRA DIAMONDS A DIA M Spring Hill, Tennessee, USA A New Normal “This business changed the person in my mirror. It has stretched me, grown me, and blessed me in many ways.” W hen Christy Hughes’s old roommate first told her about the success she was having with dōTERRA essential oils, Christy didn’t think much of it. Her old roommate persisted and gave her some samples. Within a week, the oils she was given were able to meet her needs, and she called her friend back to tell her they had worked. Knowing Christy couldn’t afford a kit, another old roommate gifted her $200 to spend on oils. With the oils in her home, Christy quickly fell in love. She made room in her grocery budget to afford her $100 monthly order. Her business began simply with a desire to get her essential oils for free. She says, “I didn’t care about a bunch of money, I just wanted my oils. They were the new normal in our home.” Her old roommate began announcing that she was coming to town and holding classes, so Christy needed to get her friends there. Christy says, “She had faith in me. She really thought I would do well if I ever gave it a chance.” Eventually, Christy started doing classes on her own and everything grew from there. As she hit each rank, the next rank no longer seemed so impossible. She says, “When you break it down, you realize getting to the next rank is not that difficult. You just keep taking the same steps you’ve taken all along. I knew I could get to Diamond—it was just a matter of time.” 26 dōTERRA ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP I FALL 2014
