YOUNG LIVING’S SEEDLINGS MEDIA DAY WITH ELLEN POMPEO

Have you tried Young Living Seedlings® yet? You should! There’s been a flurry of excitement surrounding the two events that we recently hosted as part of the launch of the Seedlings line; people can’t stop talking about it!

Young Living’s Seedlings Media Day with Ellen Pompeo garnered more than 1.5 billion media impressions! This far surpassed our launch goal, and we are thrilled to have made such a mark. The Seedlings message proved to be universal, earning media coverage in Canada, South Africa, and the UK, and popping up on various media outlets, including People, Parade, Today, US Weekly, Yahoo, AOL, E!, and Entertainment Tonight. For more details, check out the media placement and read the official press release.

We also hosted a YL Seedlings product experience at The Grove in Los Angeles that brought almost 245 families, bloggers, social media influencers, and Diamonds from Los Angeles and the surrounding areas together to learn about the collection. Guests entered to win one of two gift baskets valued at $1,250 filled with Seedlings and other YL products. Check out the post by our guest, Beauty Momme, complete with a product spotlight, to learn more!

We’re thrilled to get the word out about Seedlings through these fun media events!

TIPS FOR BUILDING YOUR YOUNG LIVING BUSINESS WITH INTEGRITY

When growing your YL business, a focus on integrity always pays off. We know that you already hold a high standard of ethics and want to build a feeling of cooperation with other Young Living organizations. To do this, please remember:

  • If approached by existing members for support, remind them that you cannot sponsor them. Encourage them to work with their active upline for any additional support and training they may need.
  • Avoid providing information on how to change sponsors to members who are not in your organization.
  • Members should not create duplicate accounts or use another’s name as an attempt to circumvent the sponsor change policy.
  • Discourage members from becoming inactive for a six-month period in order to change sponsors. This may be perceived as cross-line recruiting.
  • Help educate, train, and support members outside your own organization.
  • Remain respectful of other members and their teams. They have worked very hard to maintain and grow their downlines.
  • Make sure that the new members you enroll are not currently enrolled with another Young Living team.
  • Create friendships outside your personal organization founded on wellness, motivation, and support.

We appreciate your focus on these reminders. These guidelines can help create a supportive, inclusive global community that helps further our vision of bringing Young Living essential oils into every home in the world.

New gear is almost here!

There’s one more reason to get excited for this summer: new YL Gear!

Sport the latest styles with trendy YL-branded clothing and gear, including new activewear, luggage pieces, oil cases, a backpack diaper bag, and more. You’ll look great and show your YL love! Watch for more updates about your soon-to-be favorites at this year’s International Grand Convention.

Styles go live this summer at YoungLivingGear.com; be sure to pick up something you love when they do!

Hamilton meets Young Living

Hamilton meets Young Living

Hamilton, the Tony award-winning hit musical, has been captivating audiences everywhere. And while Hamilton was selling out shows nearly every night during its recent run in Salt Lake City, some of the cast and crew got to take a day trip away from the stage to visit our Global HQ and the Young Living farm in Mona.

“I wanted to invite the cast to tour the farm because I had done it at convention and loved it,” explained Conroe Brooks, a Young Living member and part of the Hamilton ensemble, whose role includes covering George Washington and King George III. “I knew several people in the cast also use essential oils, so I knew they’d love it.”

Conroe reached out to Royal Crown Diamonds Heather and John Brock, who then teamed up with three other Royal Crown Diamonds and Hamilton enthusiasts Sera Johnson, April Pointer, and Jen Jordan. Arrangements were set up for an exciting day at the Mona farm and the global headquarters. These members also generously helped many of the corporate staff get tickets to the show, and Conroe treated YL staff and members to backstage access after the production.

Young Living was delighted to give the cast and crew a tour of the YL farm in Mona. They enjoyed a show from Gary Young’s prize-winning Percheron horses, a ride in horse-drawn wagons, and a distillery tour led by Young Living President and Chief Operating Officer Jared Turner.

“It was so fun to be able to spend some time with Hamilton’s talented cast and crew,” said Jared. “It was an especially incredible opportunity to take them to our roots at the farm to witness some of our Seed to Seal® promise in action.”

After leaving the farm, Young Living welcomed the cast and crew to our global headquarters with thunderous applause and a NingXia Red® toast to “raise a glass to freedom,” both a lyric from the show and a nod to this year’s theme for the 2018 International Grand Convention: Freedom.

“The way they welcomed us as we walked into headquarters was my favorite part of the day. I was speechless,” said Conroe. “So much love was thrown our way. The cast is still talking about what a great experience it was.”

Just like the cast of Hamilton, you can visit the Mona farm during the convention this month. We look forward to seeing you!
