NEW dōTERRA DIAMONDS Curt & Tonia Doussett “As long as you’re sharing on whatever level you can, you’re always moving forward.” OREM, UTAH, USA CAN’T HELP SHARING W hen Tonia Doussett was introduced to dōTERRA by James and Roxane Bybee, she was shocked that she had never heard of essential oils before. She had always been interested in doing things naturally and almost immediately bought a Diamond kit. She wanted to know everything about every oil. Tonia and her husband, Curt, own an improv comedy club and a production company that requires a lot of travel for Curt. They enj oy these jobs, and Tonia thought she was too busy to get involved in another business. The Bybees told her all she had to do was share. She had Natalie Goddard teach her first class, and Tonia’s first builder signed up under her without her even knowing. “I didn’t know how big dōTERRA was going to get,” Tonia says. At first, she just wanted to cover the cost of her products and was shocked the first time she made $1,000 a month. Every milestone she hit, she kept reaching for more. But, she is clear to say that it never would have happened without her downline. She says, “The whole heart of our team is our builders. We are where we are because of them. They inspired me to step up to the plate. Their successes lit a fire under us and pushed us along.” Though Curt and Tonia are still busy with three businesses, they have no desire to give up any of it. Tonia says, “We picked up dōTERRA, put it in the wagon, and kept moving down the highway. We have so many irons in the fire, but we’ve never stopped doing dōTERRA because we can’t stop talking about it. I can’t not tell someone about these awesome products I’ve found. I will always open my mouth and say something. I can’t help it.” Tonia feels strongly that every person on the planet needs to know about dōTERRA essential oils. She says, “My mission is to at least let everyone that I come in contact with know there’s a choice. So many people don’t know about the benefits of essential oils and how they can help them and their family. These oils are life-changing, and everyone should know about them whether they choose to use them or not.” She loves hearing and sharing people’s stories with dōTERRA. “It’s real people sharing real experiences. When you can connect with a person on that level, that’s life-changing and that’s motivating. There’s nothing better than seeing people get it and use the oils for the better in their lives. It just reaffirms why you do dōTERRA in the first place, no matter what your paycheck is.” “Personal development is huge in dōTERRA. You realize what you’re creating and that you have the power to create more, and to better yourself.” DIAMOND TIPS 18 DON’T GIVE UP BE YOURSELF NEVER LET GO MAKE THE INVESTMENT “Even if you get discouraged, it’s OK. If it’s not happening as quick as you want or if you’ve got others things on your plate, just keep going.” “Sometimes it can get distracting to compare your business to how other teams are doing it. Everyone has their own way of doing things, and that’s OK.” “Always stay in touch with your leaders. Keep talking to people about dōTERRA. Even if you can’t do everything, stay connected and don’t fall away.” “Invest back into your business. Sometimes you end up not even breaking even, but if you put in what you can, you’re going to see exponential growth.” dōTERRA ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP I JULY / AUGUST 2015 www.doterra.com 19
