We often fail at our new year’s resolutions because we usually have many things we wish to change in our lives. It is quite difficult to change many habits overnight, yet somehow we believe it is possible. If you really want to succeed at keeping your resolutions this year, try picking just one or two specific things to work on this month, and continue doing them until they become habits. Then, over the coming months, you can add a couple small things each month to work on. Keep a journal, and record the things you’ve done. Track progress by finding a way to quantify your goal. Such measurements could include the number of people you have contacted, classes taught, samples given, target profit, etc. Write down discoveries you have had such as new insights, things that work well for you and your team or things that don’t, and new ideas for classes or teaching methods.
The first step to building an essential oil business is to first learn about essential oils and how they can help you and others. Once you start talking to people about essential oils, you will find they have a lot of questions you may not know answers to. The book Modern Essentials is a great resource to start with in your journey of learning about essential oils so that you can share your knowledge with others. Part of this learning will come through using the oils and seeing how they work for you. As you do this, you will begin to gather stories that, in sharing, may help others.
Here are a few posts we have written from information found in Modern Essentials and other helpful resources:
The next few steps for building an essential oil business involve giving out samples, holding classes, and supporting your downline or members of your team. One of our most popular posts this year has been on a Make & Take Roll-on Class that is simple to do and a great way to either introduce people to essential oils and let them leave with something to try or involve people who already use essential oils (maybe even members of your team) and encourage them to continue using essential oils and sharing them with others. Read more about this class idea here: A Simple Introductory Essential Oil Class Idea.
The following are a few helpful business-building tips from posts we have written this last year:
We hope you can find the information you need to help you achieve success with your essential oil business this coming year.
