Hailey & Jeremy Aliff
Whether it’s through Hailey’s career as a midwife, or Jeremy’s passion to help people become financially independent, the Aliffs are able to combine their strengths with Young Living in order to motivate others and succeed in life.Before joining Young Living, Hailey remembers feeling burnt out in her job. “I didn’t have the freedom that I do now to [assist in] births at a healthy rate,” she says. One of their biggest dreams after getting married was to be debt-free in order to give back without reserve. “We’ve always had the hearts to give,” Jeremy says, “but didn’t have the means to do it until now.”
Several of their family members have also joined Young Living, and they continue to form new relationships with people across the globe through their travels. “This is a purpose-driven company,” Hailey says. “It’s all about inviting people to come and change their lives for the better.” As world explorers and advocates for health and wellness, Hailey and Jeremy love the freedom and purpose they have found in Young Living.
Carla & Bill Green
Carla and Bill Green like to spend their time exploring the great outdoors, traveling the world, and dancing every opportunity they get. Bill loves motorcycles and has even been known to motorcycle from their home in Alberta, Canada, to Salt Lake City to help raise funds for the Young Living Foundation. They are passionate about empowering others to, as they put it, “take charge of their health and find financial success.”
While raising their four children, who also joined Young Living, Bill and Carla made the decision to always keep one parent home, no matter the financial sacrifices. Carla explains, “Knowing that our kids and other parents can use Young Living to stay at home is what makes my heart sing.”
Helping others reach financial freedom is the Greens’ way of paying it forward. “We’ve always been giving people,” Bill says, “but with Young Living, we’re able to give so much more.”
Annie & Chris Hauser
For Annie and Chris Hauser, Young Living has been about the opportunity to nourish individuals, communities, and their family. The freedom to spend their time with their two children, foster children, friends, and pets has been a huge motivator behind what they do.
The couple also loves to see their team members grow as they work alongside them and teach them how to be empowered on their wellness journeys. “These people are world-changers,” Annie says. “We cherish them so much, and being able to share experiences together is the best reward. I’m a better leader because of Young Living.”
The family lives in Philadelphia and enjoys watching movies at home and travelling together. Annie says, “When we travel, we are passionate about bringing our loved ones along with us.”
Echo & Danny Hill
As a leader, Echo Hill is positive, motivational, and high-energy. She strives to create leaders who aren’t just followers but empowered members who can act for themselves. Providing support and encouragement is a key aspect of her leadership style, and she says she feels the happiest when she’s serving others and helping them find success and reach their goals.
Echo loves her Young Living business for the sense of community—which she sees as a second family—and for the opportunity it provides to give her son a better life. Both she and Danny grew up in difficult circumstances, and because of this they strive to create a healthy family life. Through Young Living, Echo found that she can give her family a better life and healthier home.
Echo’s ideal day would include meditation, time for tea or coffee and a good breakfast, talking with her team, and spending time with Danny and their son.
When Fiona was first introduced to essential oils through her neighbor, Angela Wong, she never imagined the success that would follow. In two years’ time, Fiona has grown her Young Living business from home and attained the rank of Crown Diamond. “Now my goal is to help others find health and success like I have,” she says.
In 2016, Fiona joined other international executives and leaders for an expedition to Hawaii to learn about her favorite oil, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood. They explored the sites where sandalwood is grown and harvested from rich volcanic soil. “It was an exciting experience to witness with our own eyes the Seed to Seal process,” Fiona says. “I watched how the best sandalwood is selected for harvesting and distillation, and came away with an increased belief that these products transform lives.”
Through sharing with others and learning from personal experience, Fiona continues to be inspired by the Young Living products and the selfless culture of the business. “By giving unconditionally, God provides us with more than we ever expected,” she says.
Stacie & Todd Malkus
As a mechanical engineer and later as a graphic designer, Stacie Malkus realized that she was missing her “bigger purpose,” one she found when she began sharing Young Living products with family and friends. While reluctant to become part of a direct sales company, Stacie had an experience that changed her mind about sharing. “After having an incredible success with Lavender oil for my toddler, I realized that every mom I knew needed these oils,” she explains.
From there, Stacie found a passion in her purpose to help others “live healthier lives, use products free of toxins, and ask the right questions” about their health. “I constantly share about this being the best job ever,” she explains, and she loves that she works with friends and gets paid for it. On her role as a leader, Stacie says when she started, she just wanted to help people. “I’ve had to slowly learn leadership skills so that I could truly help people and make an impact on so many.”
Wendy Renee Mercure
Wendy Mercure started working at age 13 and hasn’t stopped since. Whether flipping burgers, piercing ears, brewing and serving coffee, attending flights, or teaching eighth graders, she’s worked hard—but always under someone else's thumb. All of that changed, however, with the launch of her Young Living business. “When I teach people how to live a harsh chemical-free life,” she explains, “it's based on my curriculum, my handouts, and my dumb jokes. I dig it.”
The most significant change, though, came when her husband, Tyson, quit his job, which he was free to do, thanks to the Young Living business. “After years of deployments and long days in school, my boys finally have their dad back,” Wendy says.
Being a catalyst for change brings excitement to Wendy’s life. “I used to say that working for Young Living is like winning the lottery, but it’s better than that,” she says. “Either would financially give me more than I ever dreamed, but only Young Living could give me such a full heart.”
Jodie Meschuk is a mom to one girl and two boys and is married to a successful football coach. A Southern California native, she is a certified yoga instructor who majored in sports medicine. Her “lightbulb moment” of increased health awareness came as a result of her son’s challenges as a baby.
According to Jodie, some of her family’s lifestyle changes include “taking time for stillness and meditation and experiencing the power the oils have on the emotional brain.” Jodie says she is a stronger, more present and intentional leader as a result. “I’ve been given the opportunity to face my fears head-on and own who I am and what I can offer the world,” she explains.
By choosing to be present and find happiness right where she’s at, Jodie is able to use her ability to connect with others to fuel her business and her life. When she’s not empowering others through Young Living, she loves being “snuggled up with family, a good movie, and a cup of tea.”
Melissa & Wayne Poepping
While Melissa Poepping was first introduced to essential oils in 1998, it wasn’t until 2005—as she held her perfect newborn baby—that she realized the importance of using natural products to care for her family. Her passion for the products is unbounded, and she is grateful for what her experiences have brought to her personal life. Melissa says, “I started this journey so that I could have a chemical-free home for my kids, but what came with the journey was my ability to stay home and raise them.”
Prior to Young Living, Melissa worked in the finance industry and even provided daycare in her own home for several years. She describes her movement into Young Living as a “leap of faith,” and she has since seen amazing results not only in her personal and financial life but in the lives of those around her. “Before I knew it, we were creating a movement in our community,” Melissa says.
Melissa has three children with her husband, Wayne, and their family loves to drive four-wheelers, swim, and spend time together at their family cabin.
Erin & Bronce Rodgers
In a search to support their family's wellness, the Rodgers found Young Living and inadvertently began an adventure that would change their family in radical ways. “Together we’ve planned a future we couldn't have imagined before oils,” Erin says.
Through Young Living, Erin's past careers in sales, teaching, and photography have all combined into a beautiful tapestry of talents. Bronce was also able to leave behind his legal career and corporate job as another result of their business. “Our goal,” Bronce explains, “is to transform the lives of friends and family who are seeking better options regarding physical and financial wellness.”
Bronce's passions include distance running and cycling, both on the trails and on the road. He also enjoys hiking in the Smoky Mountains near their home. Erin loves to read, enjoys photography, and is most happy spending time with loved ones. “I have a strong desire to help others see their purpose,” she says, “and to help them live out the Lord's calling in their lives.” They both agree that Young Living has made their dreams even more of a reality.
