As many of you are now working from home, or perhaps losing hours and pay at your job, I thought it would be a good time to share some tips on how I chose the network marketing company I did. 

When we were first planning our move to Vietnam, I was burnt out from teaching and wanted to be able to stay at home with my then toddler as we settled into a new country and culture. It was then that I started to peruse various network marketing companies to see if any would be a good fit for me. 

My first criteria was that it had to be something I could do overseas. This quickly ruled out some of the clothing and makeup network marketing companies that required you to keep a stock of the items. At the time, I wasn't sure how to even ship stuff from the US to Vietnam without it getting stuck in customs. 

I then began looking for a network marketing company that had a product that I loved. I had purchased items from friends in various network marketing companies before, and there were some items I loved and used regularly, but didn't meet my first criteria. I found a few companies that had online options for a personalized website to sell from, without needing a stock. However, I still hadn't found the product that I absolutely loved and felt good about selling to others. 

I started to consider online teaching as an option, but the hours didn't quite work for our family, so I kept looking. After a few months of living in Hanoi, and our respiratory and immune systems trying desperately to adjust to this polluted city, I finally found the product I loved - doTERRA essential oils! 

I didn't go into doTERRA wanting to build the business immediately. At first, I was just a skeptical yet happy customer, keeping my options open. As I began to use the oils regularly and experience the power of the oils in supporting my respiratory system, I started to share a few posts of my successes on social media. My sister saw it and was my first customer - before I had even decided to do the business. She signed up with her own membership and I got my first paycheck. That was what finally convinced me to make this my network marketing business. I had a product that I loved and I could do it from anywhere in the world! 

As I began to dig deeper into the heart of doTERRA, I learned how they help small farmers and communities around the world with schools and hospitals. As I listened to the free business training from my team leaders, I learned about the financial possibilities with building a doTERRA business. These things further convinced me that I had chosen the right network marketing company for me. I knew it wouldn't be easy and it wouldn't be fast, but I knew I was in this for the long run. 

If you're looking for another source of income, or something to give you purpose, or perhaps something to replace your current income, email me at I would love to chat to see if doTERRA is the right fit for you, too!
