What a tremendous July we’ve had! I’d love to share some of the highlights with you, along with more exciting opportunities coming up this month.
We paid tribute to our Founder Gary Young on his birthday, 11th July, by commemorating International Essential Oils Day — a day to celebrate essential oils and recognise the pioneer of the modern-day essential oils movement. In addition to celebrating Gary’s vision, we also honoured his work by donating 5 percent of the day’s global sales to the Young Living Academy, the school that started Gary’s philanthropic work around the globe.
I’m delighted share that our Live Your Passion Rally events held on 14th July across Australia and New Zealand were a great success and continue to grow in popularity. They are fast becoming the place we launch new products and create a welcoming environment for guests with attractive offers. Thank you to all those who helped support this event by hosting, taking part, helping or even inviting family and friends to attend. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn, network with other members and unite with the global YL community on our shared vision for wellness.
More recently, our Yoga Balance Retreat and Aromatherapy Yoga Teacher training held in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth were absolutely fantastic. A huge thank you to our US yoga guru Ed Dailey, and to you, our valued members for bringing your enthusiasm, energy (and friends) to these power-packed events. I hope you enjoyed the sessions, learned how to relax :-), and made some lasting memories.
Have you seen the fabulous new promotions we have on offer in August? Our PV and ER promotions feature some fantastic gifts: Brain Power™ EO, Mister™ EO, Stress Away™ EO, Cool Azul™ Sports Gel, Peppermint EO, Pine EO and the Essential Rewards exclusive Vetiver EO. We also have two very special Father’s Day gift packs to help you celebrate and honour the men who’ve greatly impacted our lives. In addition, a fabulous new enrolment promotion that will surely make your August abundant!
In this edition of Essential Business news our ‘Member Success Story’ features our YL Platinum leader, Jen Gallagher. Jen’s passion for sharing Young Living essential oils and gregarious personality have taken her to great heights. I learned up close and personally, when Jen sets her mind to something, she makes it happen! You will really enjoy reading her story. It gives me great pleasure to see our second Product Pickup and Warehouse come to fruition just a week ago in Western Australia. Our Perth Experience Centre is now up and running, and congratulations to all our Perth leaders for working so hard to make this a reality.
This month we also launch a brand new Rising Stars of Versace promotion, which I know will be an exciting one! It will take place at the exquisite 6-star Palazzo Versace hotel for three days leading up to our 20th Anniversary Symposium celebrations in February 2019. This follows on from our enormously successful Cruise Under The Stars cruise trip last February. Learn more about this in our Business Promotions section below.
I’m looking forward to our Mastermind exclusive training event to be held later this month and hope to see you in Sydney for this great opportunity.
I wish you an amazing August!
General Manager, Australia and New Zealand
