So I attended doTERRA Global Convention this past week. I bought my ticket when they became available in 2017 after the 'YOU' convention. Originally my sister and one of my builders were to come with me but for each of their own reasons decided to back out. When they both announced to me they weren't going to go they did it in the same week. I'll be honest I wasn't sure what to do because I didn't really know anyone else who was going. After thinking about it I decided I was going since I heard it can fast forward your doTERRA business. I then got to know my upline and asked her about her monthly leader meetings she had her place. I started going to them to get to know her and others on her team. I'm glad I did because that helped me know friendly familiar faces at convention.
I didn't know what to expect from convention. I went there with an open mind. It was the first time I also was travelling solo. I didn't know what to expect with that either but all went really well. I thought I would be scared but airports are pretty easy to navigate. Hey if people who don't speak English can do it I can figure it out.
I couldn't believe the number of people at convention. In total there were 40,000 of us there. There were people everywhere. I got myself to the Salt Palace to line up to register and I think all 39,999 other advocates were there lined up with me. It took a long time to get through but people were so nice in line. I even helped one lady play a trivia game on her phone. Of course I had the answer to the question that was about Canada.
Throughout the whole event you saw doTERRA back packs everywhere even when no where near downtown. What amazed me was the number of people on their public transportation system that asked what was happening and what was doTERRA. The HOME of doTERRA and still there were numerous Salt Lake City residents who didn't know the number one essential oil in world was in their back yard. I was amazed.
There were so many great speakers to really were inspirational to listen to. Tim Ballard from OUR. New York best selling author of Left to tell Immaculee IlIbagiza and Hugh Jackman who performed three songs and they interviewed.
The biggest message I got from convention was your dreams can come true but it is up to you to believe and manifest them into reality. If you want to be successful in your doTERRA business you must take action and do the WORK! Also you must give back. The more you give of yourself the more you will get back.
I do doTERRA because I feel like it found me. The time before I started with doTERRA I was in a really dark time in my life and questioning my purpose and why I was put on this earth. I was having issues at work and even thought I may lose my job. I am a mother to my son but at the time I felt even that I was awful at and questioned my abilities to be a good mom. I felt like everything in my life was well, shitty. My anxiety and depression got the best of me. When I started using the oils and found out you can do a it as a business I felt like I found what I was looking for. My calling. I read everything I could about oils and so started my journey with doTERRA.
That's why I went to convention. I feel like doTERRA saved me from doing self harm because I was so unhappy and with these little bottles of oils I found hope and joy.
I'm glad I got to go to convention. I met a lot of great people and even got my picture taken with Emily Wright one of the founders. I learned a lot and listened to some amazing people. I am proud of myself for going to convention even though it meant going solo. They say you go when you get out of your comfort zone and I sure got out of mine!!
