Thanks for joining me again! Now you know that I started with Young Living due to Wellness, and how it has enabled me find and live my life Purpose. Now, here’s what makes it is a sustainable reason to stay with Young Living.


I understand some of you may be wary of Young Living because it is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company and there are usually some negative vibes about that. However, I hope you have realised by now that Young Living, and the people aligned with it (such as the One Drop group), has a very different business model that is not merely focused on sales or profits, but is centred on the heart and passion to make the world a better place through wellness, purpose and abundance.

Having an MLM or network marketing structure is just Young Living’s chosen distribution model, which is actually crucial to the proper education and guidance that is required in supporting members throughout their natural wellness journey. In fact, the MLM structure and well thought out compensation plan has empowered many Young Living leaders to escape their previous life of poverty and build a sustainable and rewarding business for themselves and their families! If you take a moment to look at all the leaders in Young Living around the world, you will notice a striking similarity – most, if not all, are like-minded in their passion to serve others, while being joyfully fulfilled and flourishing with abundance in all aspects of their lives. This is an awesome business to be in!

Indeed, thanks to the virtuous circle of sharing among friends and being blessed with many awesome leaders in my team, I have been able to quit my job and build my own little business with Young Living. I am filled with gratitude for having a very fulfilling “job” that allows me to bless others and be blessed while having the flexibility to spend quality time with my family. Being a business owner (I love the sound of this!), living a life of purpose with passion, and overflowing with abundance – it is a dream come true!
Network marketing is really the easiest and most rewarding way to be an entrepreneur. Robert Kiyosaki (entrepreneur and author) says,

“Network marketing gives people the opportunity, with very low risk and very low financial commitment, to build their own income-generating asset and acquire great wealth.”
And he also said this, which I totally agree with:

“If you are a person with big dreams and would love to support others in achieving their big dreams, then the network marketing business is definitely a business for you. You can start your business part-time at first and then as your business grows, you can help other people start their part-time business. This is a value worth having – a business and people who help others make their dreams come true.”
How awesome!

Besides the financial benefits, as a leader in Young Living, I’m also challenged to work on personal growth and leadership development. Building up, coaching and resolving conflicts among people can be testing at times but really stretches me beyond my comfort zone and empowers me to grow as a person. What I love is how we succeed when our team succeeds. It’s really a very rewarding win-win opportunity to grow together to achieve abundance for all. Abundance not just in wealth but also in health, love, joy, peace and whatever your heart desires.

There it is, my reasons for choosing Young Living can be summed up in 3 words – Wellness, Purpose and Abundance. 3 simple words with such profound meaning. Now how about you? Would you also want Wellness, Purpose and Abundance in your life?
