Global Update

Latin America

Region Update: Latin America

Latin America is one of Young Living’s fastest-growing regions! The region’s theme for the first half of 2018 is “Breaking Records”—as in record-breaking sales.

The team in Mexico works closely with local members and those with downlines in the market. The team recently took a 10-city tour of areas with high growth potential, building local support that has strengthened and motivated members in incredible ways. The team also established a Silver Camp for high-performing Silvers to offer important training. Compared to the first half of 2017, the market has grown 134 percent!

Travis Miller recently joined the Ecuador team as country manager. The team has expanded focus into new areas: Libertad, Azogues, and Manta. At the Ecuador farm in Guayaquil, members participate in tours and experience the Seed to Seal® commitment to quality. This hands-on engagement has not only been exciting for members but has also helped create a 65 percent sales increase from January through June 2017. If you have not seen the Guayaquil farm and the Young Living Academy, we encourage you to visit and be inspired by Founder D. Gary Young’s vision.

The first Latin America Convention will be October 12–13 in Mexico City. Speakers will include Dr. Mike Buch, Lindsey Teague Moreno, Mike Moreno, and Brand Ambassador Lindsey Elmore. With incredible speakers and the enthusiasm of Latin America members, this convention will be a huge success!
