He didn’t realize that would be what got her through her current health struggles. Adrienne was amazed at how effective the dōTERRA essential oils were. She began attending every class she could to find out more about them. She says, “I just felt so empowered with all this new information I was learning.” It was a few years later before Adrienne thought about getting involved with the business. She had been sharing and referring people to Teresa or directly to dōTERRA corporate. She was at her son’s baseball game when she realized she had spent the whole game responding to text messages concerning the oils and helping players with the oils she had brought. She says, “At that moment, I realized I could be getting paid for this. I loved it and I was being of service, so why not just go for it?” Adrienne became involved in building her own business, and today she and Evan are working together to share dōTERRA. They have always worked together, so they came in aware of how to make it work. Adrienne says, “He has his own system, I have my own, and through trial and error we discovered what our specialties are. We would not be where we are with our business if we didn’t do this together.”
