At the recent What a Woman Wants Expo in Sandy, Utah, Young Living Platinum Kim Mahr presented on “The Power of Belonging,” an insightful look into why a supportive community, or “tribe,” can be key to achieving our goals of happiness and success.
Kim is a top Young Living leader, licensed psychotherapist, and motivational speaker and coach. Her specialty is helping people get “un-stuck” in all areas of their lives, personally and professionally. We asked Kim to share some of her perspectives with us.
In your presentation, you spoke of your tribe. Who are they, and what role do they play in your life?
For me, this journey is about being in a community with a tribe of people who uplift, empower, and support me every single day. My work isn’t about money; it is about sharing and being of service to others, and from there, the money also flows. As women, we crave connection and community, and we are often the caretakers of our families and our community. We naturally share what we love. I see it as my role and responsibility to empower the women in my tribe to become the best versions of themselves. Through this vision, I have developed friendships deeper than I ever could have imagined.
What role has Young Living played in your journey?
At a time when I was at rock bottom, a friend reminded me of Young Living products I had used off and on for the past 16 years. It was a timely reminder that I had the power to take care of my children and myself. I started simply by finding and using products that addressed my needs and transformed my family’s overall wellness. But for me, it was much more than the products. I was connected to a group of women who lifted me up when I needed it most. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share Young Living products with others and provide the foundation and support to those who need it most.
What is the key message you wanted to share with everyone at the expo?
We come from all walks of life, from wonderfully diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We are mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends. We all, on some very basic level, crave connection. We want to belong. Belonging gives us a framework by which we define ourselves.
We all share a common mission: to connect with, nourish, nurture, and lift others up. We are here, together, to help each individual in our tribe become the highest and best version of themselves through self-empowerment and to achieve their own personal dreams, whatever they may be.
A big thank you to Kim for sharing her insights with us on building a community of empowerment.
