This is the house that "the little brown bottles" built! Let me explain!
For those of you who are "New friends" and unfamiliar with my story, or for those who may have forgotten, seven years ago right now I was in a pretty desperate situation. I lost my last full-time job just over 8 years ago when my employer lost one of their largest money-making clients and downsizing had to happen. When I lost that job, I looked for another job working full-time for someone else, but it was right in the middle of the downturn in available jobs. So, I started "collecting" part-time jobs to make ends meet.
Seven years ago right now, I was working FOUR part-time jobs to try to make ends meet. I had NO life of my own. As one of my jobs, I was a mobile notary and while it provided decent income for part-time work, I literally had to be available anytime from 7 AM to 11 PM Monday through Saturday. I couldn't plan anything, couldn't be depended upon to schedule anything (just in case a closing came in) and it never failed that if I DID schedule something and asked off, there were three or more BIG closings that came in on those days. On the very DAY of my Grandma's funeral service, I was informed by my scheduler for the closings that it was "too bad that I had to be gone because I could have had four HUGE closings that day". Compassionate, right?
Anyway, between that job and the three others that I was trying to keep up with, and with the help of family on occasion, I somehow managed to not lose my house and eat on a regular basis, but my finances were becoming increasingly frightening.
And then came my introductions to essential oils and to my favorite brand, dōTERRA. (Don't stop reading!!!!!! I know what you're thinking. I promise this is worth continuing to read!)
Please understand that when I was first introduced to Essential Oils, it was ONLY to help with some seasonal issues that I was having. I went to choir one night snotting and sneezing and miserable because of the leaves dying and causing all of it. A friend shared a couple of essential oils with me and was symptom-free by morning. I was sold on the fact that the oils worked. I set up my own account so that I could order whenever I wanted to, but was adamant that I was ONLY going to order them.
But my friends started noticing and I started talking to them about what I was using to keep from being miserable during what is typically one of the most miserable times of the year for me and before I knew it (and I TRULY didn't understand why, at the time), I started getting checks in the mail and was told that I had hit a beginning leadership rank with the company.
God was obviously up to something in SPITE of my opinions of Direct Sales and MLMs. I HAD, after all, participated in several without much success.
So, I started doing my research and determined to invest my time, energy and resources into "seeing what would happen". My growing team got to watch as, one-by-one, I got to give up the other part-time jobs and dōTERRA became my full-time endeavor. My team and income continued to grow and around this time last year I started to realize that it was possible that I could start looking into a housing situation that would be better suited to my business. I still, however was skeptical. BUT GOD...
As I looked, literally EVERYTHING started falling into place. I found a builder that offered a layout just like what, in my mind, I wanted. The cost was within the limits of what I was willing to invest. On the very DAY that I signed the paperwork and jumped in with both feet (and was scared to DEATH that "what if this is just a fluke and tanks on me in a heartbeat"), I was informed that before I even paid my deposit check, because I had already signed the paperwork, I had equity in my new home. I ended up with things that I "wasn't supposed to have" - hardwood instead of carpet in a bedroom that I was using as a work room, a linen closet that wasn't in the plans for my home, fescue instead of bermuda grass, and on and on.
God has made it VERY clear that He has bigger plans for me than I can even imagine. So, I'm in this INCREDIBLE new home, I'm WORKING it, doing what I can to skill up and honor what He has given me and all the way, I'm thanking GOD for what He has provided.
So, this is the house that the "little brown bottles" that our oils come in built. Thank you to my dōTERRA Family, to David Stirling, Emily Wright, Dr. David K. Hill, DC, Corey Lindley, Rob Young, Greg Cook and Mark A. Wolfert and to both my upline and downline, as well as all of the customers and friends of my dōTERRA family for all you have done to make this possible.
I am forever grateful.
