I have talked about using oils and why I think you want to do that (or why I think they have helped me and how I think they can help you) and I have talked about the starter kit, but I haven’t really taken the time to explain what it means to be a distributor. You may be thinking “I don’t want to sell oils, I just want to buy some for myself”. I know that’s exactly how I felt when I first started using essential oils. I didn’t want to sell them, I just wanted to use them for myself and my family. That is the perfect reason to sign up as a distributor. I still definitely recommend starting with the premium starter kit just because it gives you a lot of common oils at a fraction of the normal price so that you can try them out, but after that you just need to order 50pv (approximately $50) a year to keep your membership active.
I know, I still haven’t answered the question “why do I want to sign up as a distributor”, the main reason is that all the oils that you buy are 24% cheaper. So think of it as getting a membership to a discount group. You don’t need to sign people up under you, or do anything more than create an account so that you get your oils at a discounted price, and then you only have to order ~$50 a year to keep that membership active.
The other reason to become a distributor is that there is an opportunity to make money. Some people make enough money with young living to be able to quit their ” real” job and just focus on the young living business. The 24% that would have been made if you had bought the product at retail price instead of wholesale price is divided up as a commission to the people who signed you up and who signed them up and so on and so on. So once you are comfortable using the products and decide you would like to share your knowledge and the benefits of using oils you can get people to sign up as a distributor under you and then start generating some extra income. If you have more questions about this please email me and I will answer as many questions about how the commissions work. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
