The most amazing journey is waiting for you!
Welcome, I'm so excited that you've decided to build a business with doTERRA!
It takes a certain amount of courage to start down this path, but don't worry, you're surrounded by a community of like-minded women and men who are also building their own dreams instead of someone else's.
Watch this video 👉🏻 to get acquainted with this training program that will take you through the next few months.
This program was built by Ashley Srokosz, doTERRA Diamond leader, after being in the business for 2 1/2 years. After launching dozens of business builders and seeing what works and what doesn't, this program includes only what will help you get your doTERRA biz started with the most momentum and least amount of stress.
REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A
100% VOLUNTEER POSITION
You're in complete control of what you do and don't do, and at what pace you do it in. You might be tempted to skip certain action steps because it's uncomfortable, hard, or it's just plain boring. Don't. The steps and actions are all in here for a very specific reason.
There are no shortcuts in this business, and what's easy to do is also easy not to do. This business is simple, but it's not always easy. The only way to guarantee that you'll achieve your goals is to focus on moving the tiniest bit forward everyday and not quitting.
With all that being said, let's start at the beginning (it's usually the best place to start 😉). Scroll down to get to Stage #1: Prep . If you have any questions, just send them to the person who is mentoring you in your business.
We're all rooting for you, and can't wait to get to know you better in our private community.

Step #2: Get set up for commissions
UPGRADE TO A WELLNESS ADVOCATE
You must switch from a Wholesale Customer to a Wellness Advocate to be able to enroll others and to receive commissions.
Click here for the steps to complete to upgrade to a full wellness advocate.
You will see new pages in your back office, such as dashboard and team, that will allow you to see all the details of your doTERRA business, such as your commissions, customer orders, and monthly volume.
If you're interested in navigating your back office more smoothly, click here and explore the sections listed under "Back Office".
SET UP YOUR LRP ORDER
To qualify to receive commissions, you must have a 100 PV monthly order set up through the Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP). Your LRP order must be saved above 100 PV at all times during the month to qualify for your weekly and monthly commissions.
I recommend setting up a 125 PV LRP order to ship before the 15th of the month to qualify you for the free Product of the Month (POM) so you can grow your oils collection faster!
Click here for a step-by-step video on how to set up your LRP order (if you haven't already).
Step #3: Join our community support
We have two main online communities that support those who are building a doTERRA biz. These communities are filled with others just like you who are shaking up the status quo and spreading the oily love wherever they go. These are great places to get random questions answered that you come across, as well as to reach out to when you're feeling stuck or struggling, or just need some other ideas.
Click on each picture below to request to join our two primary support communities. You should be approved within 48 hours of your request.
Step #4: Product Knowledge
Before you start sharing your love of doTERRA with others ... you have to love doTERRA! Seems pretty simple, but a lot of people want to jump right into the business side without learning about all the amazingness that doTERRA's products can offer them.
The sooner you up-level your own health and way of living, the sooner others will be attracted to you so that they can experience it, too.
You deserve to experience all forms of abundance and wellness before you can help others find it.
Spend time exploring each resource below to learn more about doTERRA's products and the reason why they are so different. This knowledge will serve as the base for your kick-ass classes, which you'll learn to teach in Stage 2.
Note that learning and reading about doTERRA's products will only take you so far, you actually have to use them on a daily basis. If you aren't consistently using your oils and other products, connect with the person who introduced you to doTERRA to book your free 30-minute Intro to Oils session so you can build an ideal daily schedule using the products that will eliminate your top 3 health issues the fastest and easiest.

Step #5: Set the stage for your biz
Now for some tough love: always remember that, as your upline team, we are here to guide you, not enable you.
You get to choose your own path in your doTERRA business, so pick the one below that feels the best to you:
Those that want to share oils with others and make some residual income but don't want the responsibility of leading a team.

Teaching activities: mostly one-on-ones + 1 class per month
Other responsibilities: enrolling + supporting oilers
Those that want to make a bit of money and cover their oil costs but don't necessarily want to build a team. This is for those that love sharing and using the oils but want to jog rather than run.

Approximate rank: Premier or Silver
Approximate income: $300 to $1,000 per month
Teaching activities: 2-3 classes per month + one-on-ones

Time commitment: 15+ hours a week
Approximate rank: Gold and above
Approximate income: $2,000 per month to unlimited
Teaching activities: 3+ classes per month + one-on-ones
Other responsibilities: enrolling + supporting oilers, mentoring leaders in the business
⇢ Let your upline mentor know what path you are planning on travelling ⇠
No matter what the speed you choose go, you're not going to get very far unless you take your doTERRA business seriously. Part of your commitment to yourself and your upline mentor is to listen to the following audio recording of the book "Go Pro" by Eric Worre. As you listen, write down your A-HA moments and share them with your mentor.
*Note*: once you hit play below, it will take a few minutes to load and start. Please be patient 👏🏻
It's been all work and no play up until now, so lastly, it's time to dream!
doTERRA has provided myself and so many others a life that they never imagined possible. A life full of fun and with much less worry. A life full of adventures and less having to do things that make you miserable. A life full of gratitude, love, and fulfillment instead of resentment and dissatisfaction.
Your last exercise is to dream about what an ideal day will be like for you 2 years from today.
Get out a blank piece of paper or a journal, and start writing out all the details of your dream day. Really let your mind wander and admit your deepest dreams to yourself. In your ideal day:
- What time would you get up? Would you be woken up by an alarm clock, a new baby, or the sun rising?
- Would you live in a different city? A different house? Be traveling the world?
- When would you eat? Would you make a leisurely dinner or be able to afford healthy, pre-made meals delivered to you?
- Would your significant other still be working? Would you still be working at the job you have now?
- Would your kids go to a different school? Could you afford to put them into daycare a few days a week?
- Would you have a cleaning lady? A delivery service for your groceries?
- Would you have all your credit cards and loans paid off?
- Would you go to yoga class in the middle of the day or meet a friend for a relaxing lunch to catch up?
- Would you spend your night catching up on Netflix or reading a new book that you just can't put down?
Give yourself permission to write down things that feel frivolous and uncomfortable, but for some reason when you think of having it you feel calm and at peace. You probably have some money beliefs that you will work through as you continue your doTERRA biz journey (we've alllllll been there!).
Now here's the scary part: send this visualization to your upline mentor. 😱
This story is what's going to help you dig deeper when it's time to grow. It will talk you out of quitting. It's your compass while you're steering through the stormy biz waters.
I did an exercise like this about 6 months into my business, so just about 2 years ago. I didn't date the paper, so I can't be sure, but I found it when I was cleaning out my desk. 98% of what I wrote down that I wanted I had achieved or made happen. Seriously. That's when I knew I had to write down my new dreams.
I want you to have the same thing, and you can.
So you've reached the end of our Stage 1: Prep! Yes, this felt like a lot of work, but ask any chef and they'll tell you that a smooth night in the kitchen starts with the right prep. Without it, they'll still get to the end of the night because time never stops ticking away, they just feel much more calm and in control doing it.
By now your checklist should have all the boxes ticked 🙌🏻
