Reflections of a Young Living Distributor on
By Jim Lynn, © 2006
Back in 1995 when I first
became a YL Distributor I did a Google word search entering
"essential oils." I recall five entries showed up in the
results, two of them were YL Distributors. Enter the same
search words today and you'll get back over nine million
results. My my...What a difference! Reflecting back, I like to
feel I had some small influence on making that
As a retired preacher and
online marketer I'd like to offer a few comments to encourage
those of you who are new to YL and or are wondering if the
same opportunity exists today as it did fifteen years
Back then I didn't know much
about essential oils, but I did understand natural health was
a growing phenomenon. My YL sponsor, who was new herself,
called me one day and said she had another person on the line
and wondered if I'd be willing to listen to him. His name
was Frank Burns. When Frank and I finished our
conversation I placed an order for $225 worth of oils and that
was my beginning with YLEO.
The internet was new then. I
recall the first time I went online. It was like stepping out
of Jurassic Park for the first time. I was fascinated and
saw an unlimited marketing opportunity. From that time
forward I built my entire YL business online. I have
yet to sponsor anyone face-to-face even to this day.
Lots of phone calls, but never face-to-face. I learned
to use this wonderful new tool called the Internet to
Now I know many of you are
wondering what kind of opportunity exists today to build a
fulltime income with YL. With just a few words: It remains
Something I've learned over the
years (I'm 67). It is impossible to saturate the natural
health market. Even with all other natural health
companies, the rise of health stores and many, many,
other natural health NWM companies, it is impossible to
saturate the market place. And for good reason...
is always a new generation of natural health seekers entering
the market place. They are no different from their parents
generation. If anything they are even more eager to buy
natural health products than their parents are or
our lifetime, the economy has never been worse than it is now.
Millions of people are searching for ways to make a living.
They have thrown off old ideas about NWM and are willing to
listen to what you have to say about YL's business
has never been a greater time period than today where people
understand quality means everything when it comes to
sustaining their heath. This means the public is more willing
to buy quality for the sake of their health. Once more, they
are willing to forsake extras in their lives in order
to buy and consume these products. They read food
labels, and are searching for quality natural health
products like those YL offers exclusively.
with me on this one...it is easier today to make a lot of
money faster then it was fifteen years ago. Now what do I mean
by that? I mean it seems to contradict what I mentioned
earlier about our economy.
Have you noticed how time seems
to speed up as you get older? Well, that's how money works,
too, when you seriously engage commerce and technology with
NWM. Doesn't matter if you know litle about technology, only
that you're willing to learn. And it isn't hard. Take it from
someone whose grand children had to be told how to roll up
windows in a car without electric windows. Boy, howdy, did
that revelation ever date and shock me!
Now look at what I said about
the above this way. If you are paid by the hour, there are
just so many hours a week you can work. Hence you're income is
limited. Not so with YL. YL's Compensation Plan allows us to
leverage our time. This means we have the opportunity to earn
unlimited income without time restraint. Said another way: You
can put in the same number of hours to earn $300 per month as
you do to earn $30,000 per month. This is the holy grail of
economic security everyone would love to
I didn't know it back in 1995,
but my life was greatly blessed the day my YL sponsor called
and asked me to consider YL. Many others since then have been
blessed as I have, not only with good health but with a
lifetime of economic security.
Oftentimes, it is our own
perceptions that block us from excelling. I hope my reflection
on YL's opportunity will be of encouragement and inspiration.
You know...Each of us has a story to tell. The best part of it
is...We're not at the end of our story but somewhere
inbetween. How will your story one
day be told by your grandchildren?
