Well I just got my first real hate mail today from a reader. I know that this is going to be a common thing as we grow and the more people we help. It is not reality to think that everyone is going to agree with my opinions and the way I do things. In fact we all need to think for ourselves. We must know our values, figure out our priorities in life, discover our passions, and live our lives according to those things.
The Total Wellness Doc and Mom is not better than you, or more important just because of the amount of people who have LIKED my Facebook page or get our emails. But I am a retired Natural Health Doctor who spent 9 years of my life studying to be a Chiropractor, then another decade learning about Natural Medicine and working with patients. In that time I learned and experienced some awesome things in the recovery of health. What I know can and has improved lives.
I have spent more than a $300,000 to learn both health and business. And thousands of hours practicing my craft, presenting on essential oils and natural remedies. The check I get every month is now in the 5 digits and helps support more than 6 staff member’s families.
But guess what?
The big check I get doesn’t come from selling classes or giving seminars. It comes from a simple network marketing business I started for less than $300 and $100 in product a month. When I first started my business I was living on food stamps and government assistance. I worked consistently 8-10 hours a week for 18 months before I started seeing significant income.
I used credit cards to finance my first year in business (I don’t recommend that) and did Raindrop Treatments for family and friends for $25 a session when I first started. Later I invested my earning back into my business and personal development education and learned how to grow my little network marketing business into a thriving business.
And I am not the only one. I have more than 40 associates who work this business with me directly part time. Many have either full time jobs, a brood of kids, or busy lives but they all have a passion for helping others. Every associate I work with directly is committed to learning and growing. They invest in their businesses and personal development every year and some every month. All of these individuals are working their way up the ladder with their time, money and energy. There are no FREE rides to success.
So to respond in love to the hate mail email who was angry about me charging for classes when they were just starting their Young Living business and felt that they should get the classes for free and that I should not be blessing my wallet… well I am sorry you feel that way.
The $47 class in question was led by a woman with 38 years of experience in her field and on that topic. Her value is immeasurable and her training was worth hundreds of dollars. As for blessing my wallet, well thank you to those who do purchase our classes.
Your investment helps my family, and a single grandmother raising her granddaughter, another family who is about to purchase their first home, two different single women who used to struggle to make ends meet, a mom going through a divorce, a family who is able to take their children abroad for an entire year because they can work via the internet and help serve us and other clients. So yes I will continue to charge for classes because they are worth it and if I were to have stayed in poverty and not valued my work then I would not be able to bless others.
So I thank all the clients we have and am very grateful. I will continue to work for you, learn more for both my benefit and yours and never stop growing. And if you want to join us in the simple, fun and yes PROFITABLE Young Living business we would love to have you apply for an associate position. But remember you must have a positive attitude, be willing to give it 18 months -2 years of effort, and yes invest your time, money and energy. You can call our office to set up an interview 315-883-1943.
For your Total Wellness,
Dr Mary Starr Carter
the Total Wellness Doc and Mom
