As I summarise the Silver Retreat experience with you, I'm sitting in a cottage overlooking an animal rescue sanctuary in the South of Utah. That may sound a bit random, so to explain, after the retreat, I hired a car and have been travelling the State of Utah. But more about that later.
Young Living value you as a product user by producing the highest standard Essential Oils and Essential Oil products on the planet. They value you as a distributor because you're willing to share those products. But they really value you when you show a willingness to start building a team and rank up to Silver and beyond, because at that point, you're starting to take this seriously as you've caught the vision and it becomes more than a hobby.
Placing value in this case means investing in you as a person, and the company shows that by treating you to this very special experience. And for most members, it's their first taste of being treated by Young Living in this way.
Imagine being flown from your home town all the way to Salt Lake City, being put up in a gorgeous hotel, given gifts, very helpful training, a day out in a working farm, well fed with healthy meals and having the opportunity to glean from members all over the world!
Who else does that?!
Some of my team were amazed when I said it was all paid for!
So, if you're wondering if sharing with others is worth it...yes, it is worth it. Not only because of these experiences, but because whenever we share, we're giving others this same opportunity. This is not an exclusive club. It's open to all.
And what is it all for? To pay off the mortgage, get a nicer car, well yes that’s all important, but I believe having a bigger income gives us the capacity to do SO much more. Imagine who you could support and what you could do with an increased income? The Young Living Foundation alone provide so many opportunities. But apart from the finances, these products are bringing us into health and wholeness.
And who doesn't need that!?
Now back to why I'm still in Utah, even though the retreat is over. You don't need to fly straight home after the retreat, although most people have obligations and need to. I decided to take the opportunity to see more of the country, seeing I'd come this far. So I've hired a car for a week, and am driving through Utah, staying in hostels and trekking through the National Parks, with plenty NingXia and Zing! Did you know that Utah has some of the most spectacular National Parks in the USA. And I didn't do much planning ahead of time. I've found people here to be so friendly and helpful.
And YL will fly you home from a different city to Salt Lake City, making it possible to see different parts of the country.
I'd encourage anyone else to go on an adventure like this if the opportunity arises. This has been a complete experience for me. I'll be going back to New Zealand up skilled, inspired and rejuvenated. I really do have the Best Team in the Best Company
