NEW Molly Dayton Orem, Utah, USA NEVER QUIT M olly Dayton’s husband, Taylor, has worked on the corporate side of network marketing companies for 25 years. After seeing everything that he dealt with, she had a bad taste in her mouth for the industry. That’s why when Allyse Sedivy approached her about dōTERRA, Molly told her no for three years. Molly was good friends with Rob Young, so finally she went and asked him about it. She says, “He spoke my language. I’m a numbers person. When Rob told me our retention rate was hovering around 68 percent, that spoke to me. I knew there was something to this business.” Molly wasn’t familiar with essential oils when she began, so when she shared with people she approached it as learning how the oils worked with them. She also approached several people from the business side, and the first six people she contacted told her no. She says, “I think most people would’ve quit, but I just said, ‘I am not stopping. I am going to do this.’” Today, all of her builders except one turned her down the first time she asked them to join her. She says, “Now, I’m at the point where if someone tells me no, I just chuckle and say, ‘You’ll be on in six weeks.’ I always remember that it took me three years. It just takes time. You have to ease people into the business.” 56 dōTERRA ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP I FALL 2014 “My son, Steele, said to me, ‘Mom, don’t you get lonely when you travel? I have an idea.
