Lindsay Teague Moreno: A Personal Chat

15 March 10, 2015 - Business Building Tips, Empowerment, Personal Development, Young Living Leaders, Young Living Team

Lindsay Teague Moreno is a driven, no-nonsense leader. She rose through the Young Living ranks to Royal Crown Diamond in an amazing 15 months and hasn’t stopped reaching for higher goals. We were able to take a few minutes and sit down with Lindsay to get her take on success, business, and where she sees things headed in the future.


How did you get involved with Young Living? 

I have three small kids, and we were getting ready to go on a trip in February of 2013. I saw a post on Facebook about using oils and had the insight that they might be great to take with us. I fell madly in love with Thieves®. At the time I actively tried not to pursue the business, but on March 25, 2013, it was made very clear to me that THIS was my path, and I began pursuing the business of Young Living. That is the day the Lemon Droppers were born!


How large is your organization? 

Right now there are over 131,000 members in my downline, and close to a quarter of them are business members, including two Royal Crown Diamond, six Diamond, 31 Platinum, 85 Gold, 490 Silver, and 1,157 Executive members. In fewer than two years, those numbers astound me, and I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for us! We’re doing our best to accomplish the mission set before us: to get oils into every home.


What is your focus in 2015? 

For my downline my focus is and always will be leadership replication. That’s never far from my thoughts as I make projections, plans, and brainstorm for the year. Outside of that I have set my intentions to reevaluate priorities now that my downline is physically more than I can handle on my own.


It’s also time to enjoy the fruits of my 100-hour workweeks. I want to get to a place where I have time to spend with my family, write, travel, and enjoy photography more. I’m also going to strive to simplify everything this year. I’m in the middle of creating a system for the Lemon Droppers that doesn’t hinge on my being available 24 hours a day—a replicable and systematic approach to the way the Lemon Droppers do business. I’m also going to be my most valiant self. My word for the year is, wait for it…valor. I fully intend to do the things that scare me in 2015. So far I’ve taken some big, scary steps toward my intentions, and I am feeling really positive about what’s to come.


What are your favorite products and why?

There are a few oils that I can’t allow myself to be without: Peppermint, Thieves, R.C., Exodus II, Valor®, and M-Grain. I would add that I absolutely love the KidScents® oils. I keep them in a drawer where my girls can grab their oils as they need them. They love the autonomy to do it on their own, and I love that I don’t have to get it for them!


Do you have any tried-and-true product usage tips? 

Recently, my husband Michael and I have had a lot of great results using our oils sublingually. He’s completely obsessed with dropping a few drops of Peppermint under his tongue a few times a day after meals. Some aren’t the tastiest oils, I think we can all agree! Drop a couple of drops under your tongue and just let it soak in without talking or swishing it around. Before you know it, it’s totally dissolved, and you don’t have to fight the taste.


What do you enjoy most about what you do? 

The people. I work with the most dedicated, hard-core, positive, no-excuses hustlers in the entire world. I am so blessed to call these people co-workers and friends. I have a group of leaders that love me, support me, and challenge me all at the same time. Everyone should be so lucky. It is my pleasure to be a servant leader to this group.


What’s your best business advice for aspiring Royal Crown Diamonds?

This is a job you can refuse to fail at, but it has to come from you, your heart, your why. My best advice is to create your life goals, scratch them out, dream bigger, and then hustle as hard as you have to in order to get there. Be willing to do anything asked of you to get there. I’m not talking about walking on others to lift yourself up. I’m talking about being willing to be the first one in and the last one to leave. That’s the hustle. It’s important to remember that helping others get what they want will, in turn, get you what you want. Be the leader who gives more in value than they take. That’s what people want to follow. Be willing to anticipate the needs of your team, and take it upon yourself to see that those needs are met. The day you stop complaining about what you don’t have and you stop expecting anyone else to do anything for you, is the day you see your first glimpse of success. I’ve been a Royal Crown Diamond for coming up on a year this summer, and there isn’t a job I won’t do. None of us, no matter what the rank, are better than we were our first day.


What are you most excited for in Young Living’s future? 

I am so excited about Young Living’s future growth. There’s absolutely no stopping us! I am so pumped to see us streamline operations and absolutely crush the growth we’ve been seeing year over year. It’s a bright future at Young Living. As my man Zig Ziglar would say, “I’m so positive, I’d go after Moby Dick in a rowboat and take the tartar sauce with me!”

  • Thank you for your story. I have been using since September 2014 and have become a believer. How do I branch out for the business or just to let people know? I am not a “forward” person so it is a little difficult for me. Thank you for any advice you can give me.

    Congrats on your accomplishments. Very inspiring. I have always been intrigued with the lemon droppers but I was told I could not be part of the group bc I didn’t sign up in a particular downline. Is there any way around this I would live to learn from the group.
