Corporate Update

From Kristen Tod, our General Manager

From Kristen's Desk

Dear Members,

What a year we’ve had! I’m thrilled to recap some of the highlights from 2018 with some of ‘what’s in store’ for 2019.

The year kicked off with our very first Live Your Passion Rally event in January across Australia. The response was overwhelming, and following suit we’ve had three more rallies this year across Australia and New Zealand. Your support and enthusiasm was the reason for the success we’ve achieved with these member-led events that are a great occasion to connect with members, learn about our new products, recognize achievements and invite others to share this wonderful opportunity!

In March we welcomed and honoured our Kiwi members and leaders with the launch of Young Living New Zealand, an event to remember! We had a full house with more than 700 guests at the launch and it was certainly a nostalgic journey for me, going back ‘home’ to Aotearoa where I spent my early years. Our presence in New Zealand has enabled substantial growth in this market and shows great promise for the future.

Our Member Experience Centre/Training Theatre came to fruition in Western Australia opening in July! A wonderful result from the fantastic growth in WA and the hard work our Perth leaders have put in to make it a reality. This Centre has enabled much faster order processing and next day delivery for many members. The positive feedback we receive daily from our WA members is encouraging.

We were also privileged to have three of the world’s gifted speakers and YL US Diamonds, Sarah Harnisch, Richard Brooke and Kimmy Brooke at our Mastermind exclusive training event with a record crowd in attendance!

This year we hosted our business promotion with a trip to the Young Living Dalmatia Aromatic Farm in Split, Croatia. Our qualifying members had a wonderful opportunity to visit the farm where our precious Helichrysum is grown and also experience the distillation process which results in our pure Helichrysum essential oil. Qualifiers also got to visit the beautiful cities of Dubai and Rome - lasting memories of a trip of a lifetime.

2018 also saw the launch of our Global Vision and Young Living’s 5-year plan: the Young Living 5x5 Pledge. Beginning in 2019 and over the next five years, Young Living pledges to expand our founder Gary’s vision in five interconnected ways. This pledge will benefit you and your families in powerful ways: Five times more people empowered by the D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation, Five years to zero waste, Five or more corporate-owned or partner farms developed each year, Five or more new markets opened each year and Five million additional households reached in five years. We have already made great progress on this with our partnership with Youlefang in China, Philippines opening, plus new partner farms in South Africa, Mexico and in NSW, Australia!

More recently, our YL Leadership Academy launch has been phenomenal! Enthusiastic members are undertaking the coaching program aiming towards a reward trip to Disneyland California and or, the YL Whispering Springs Farm in Mona, Utah and/or International Grand Convention 2019 along with their families.

I’m very pleased to note we’ve again grown by a massive 33% over last year, across Australia and New Zealand - an incredible feat! What’s interesting to note is that new enrollees also increased by 33%! I reminisce how far we’ve come since inception 19 years ago and I’m thankful to you, our loyal and hard-working members for the growth we have enjoyed every year.

This year also brought us incredible sadness with the loss of our inspirational founder D.Gary Young – my boss, my mentor and my friend. Gary was a driven man, a man on a mission, with a vision that had no boundaries. His own welfare was always secondary. When I first met Gary, although he wasn’t a big man, the moment he entered the room, I felt his presence fill the space.

Gary had his finger on the pulse of the business. He treated us, his management team, like we were members of his family. Whenever I called him, he always picked up. Whenever I texted him, he always replied. Gary (and Mary) have always given me unconditional love, support and encouragement, and I know I wasn’t special – this is just the way they support the whole team. Gary has helped each of us in many different ways and impacted millions of lives for the better with his incredible vision and pioneering work with essential oils.

Gary and Mary have built a culture where members come first and foremost, their focus is all about giving back, with the most generous compensation plan in the industry, and to those who have little to nothing, through the D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation.

Gary lived the life of 10 men and accomplished more in his life than 100 men! His research and vision has benefited millions of people around the world – so far. You are Gary’s ambassadors. You will be his champions, and together we will share Gary’s vision with the world.

Thank you for all your hard work and support this year, without which, none of our achievements would have been possible. I sincerely appreciate your commitment in sharing Gary’s global vision to take essential oils to every home in the world.

Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas and abundant New Year from Mary, my family and I, and your team in the ANZ office.

Sydney staff & families at the YL Christmas party – can you guess who Santa is?

Fondest regards,

Kristen Tod

General Manager, Australia and New Zealand

    ER Bonus Update, Chinese Product Pricelist & More

    The ER Bonus is here to stay!

    Earn EXTRA with new ER enrolments!

    An exciting addition to the YL compensation plan

    Introduced earlier this year, the Essential Rewards Bonus was originally a temporary promotion that gave business-builders a bonus for helping new team members get on board with the benefits of Essential Rewards, but members loved it so much that it’s here to stay! As you continue to enrol friends and family with ER, you’ll receive this bonus!

    Here’s how it works:

  • If a member enrols with a Premium Starter Kit (PSK) and signs up on Essential Rewards (ER) with a 100 PV order at the same time, the enroller will earn an additional US$15 bonus paid out along with the Starter Kit Bonus.
  • For the bonus to apply, the ER order must process successfully the following month. In other words, the member must enrol with a PSK and sign up for ER in the first month, and the second-month ER order must process with 100 PV for the enroller to qualify for the bonus.
  • If the 100 PV ER order does not process successfully in the second month, the bonus will return to Young Living the following month.
  • Now it’s even more exciting for you to share all that Young Living has to offer. We’re excited to share with you this newly permanent compensation plan perk that rewards your efforts even more!

    With all of the amazing enrolment on ER challenges and activity, it’s worth reminding yourself of the additional rewards currently in place.
