Free to Give is a new dōTERRA-sponsored incentive program designed to inspire Wellness Advocates to pay off debt and live abundantly while becoming free financially in order to be in a better position to give to others. The program focuses on four main levels of paying off debt to help increase personal freedom and financial stability: credit cards, vehicles, loans, and mortgage. This incentive program is offered to Wellness Advocates to motivate and recognise their hard work put into becoming financially free. Once financially free, Wellness Advocates can then give back to others.
Being financially free is a long-term goal for most people. With the Free to Give program, Wellness Advocates will see the blessings that come from being free of debt and loans, allowing them to enjoy living with financial freedom. In doing so, Wellness Advocates will be in a position to give to others who have just started their own financial independence journey.
We have categorised the most common kinds of debt into four categories:
Paying off any one of these is a huge accomplishment. Each Wellness Advocate enroled in the Free to Give program who achieves financial independence in any one these categories will receive a token to symbolise their achievement. Our goal is that our Wellness Advocates can begin their journey to becoming free, one category at a time, until they are ultimately in a place where they are Free to Give.
To enrol in the Free to Give program please complete the enrolment form. You will receive a postcard and token collection board that you can keep and add each token to after you complete each of the four categories: credit cards, vehicles, loans, and mortgage. As you achieve financial freedom in each category, you will receive a token that can be placed in your chipboard to symbolise your success. We welcome you on this wonderful journey, and cannot wait to be inspired by your story of how you became Free to Give.
The purpose of the Free to Give program is to help Wellness Advocates achieve the financial freedom needed to give to others. We have partnered with The 4 Laws of Financial Prosperity by Blaine Harris and Charles Coonradt to create a customized dōTERRA version of the book.
This book includes many helpful tips to paying off debt, including descriptions of each of the 4 Laws which are: Track, Target, Trim, and Train. Becoming debt free makes it possible to achieve financial peace of mind and live an abundant lifestyle where you can give to others.
“doTERRA wants to be known as the company that helps the most people get out of debt.”
– Corey Lindley, Chief Financial Officer, dōTERRA International –
As a single mom with five kids, Amy couldn’t pay her rent by herself and was on public assistance. She says, “My world was small and I often felt disempowered because I had to continually ask for help. Now, I’m able to give back.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how much her life has changed with doTERRA. “I have grown and blossomed exponentially with the medium doTERRA has provided. I no longer see limits. My boundaries are so far out that I can barely see them, and they used to be so close around me that I could barely breathe. I am so proud of the person I am becoming and I am even more proud of my leaders and the courage they exhibit. I feel more. I’m more human.”
Rosie realized that a doTERRA business could be the key to getting her husband, Darren, out of his factory job. She says, “He’s clocked in and out and we’ve been at the mercy of negotiations with the union for decades. There have been times where he’s been laid off for years. I’ve had situations where I didn’t even have the gas in the car to be able to take my sick babies to the free clinic.” With no retirement in sight, they knew that both of them would have to work until they couldn’t anymore. She says, “Giving back is a huge part of what my family stands for and why we do we what we do. doTERRA has become a way that we are going to be free to do humanitarian aid.” Darren will be able to retire from his factory job in April 2016 and have his whole life ahead of him in return for all the hard work he has put in. “Before, we were not even living paycheck to paycheck,” Rosie says. “We did not have enough.” Now, they are going to be able to retire and move next to their children and grandchildren and have more than enough to give back and serve others.
Before her divorce, Rachell Brinkerhoff had been a stay-at-home mom of two kids. Now she found herself living from paycheck to paycheck, struggling just to put gas in the car. For six months, she lived in a one bedroom apartment. Later, she was forced to move from her one-bedroom apartment and find a new home. She found a beachside cottage that cost almost twice as much in rent as she paid before. Knowing her doTERRA business was growing, she signed the lease for this new home and told herself she had to hit Silver in order to pay for it. She made that commitment, and not only hit Silver the month she needed to, but continued to do so every month after. Soon she hit Gold, and replaced her income from her two jobs. Rachell knows that without doTERRA she would still be stuck working for someone else, never able to see her kids—and unhappy. She says, “I feel like doTERRA has given me all the things that I’ve been searching for for years. It’s completely aligned with everything I’ve ever wanted. I can make a difference in other people’s lives and have the time and financial freedom that I’ve always dreamed of. As a single mom, that’s a big deal.”
Cara made a decent salary as a speech pathologist, but racked up a lot of student loans in the process of becoming one. By reaching Diamond, she is now on track to paying off those loans, something that would never have been possible before. On top of that, she is able to stay at home with her children and do something she loves. She says, “I feel like there’s never a bad work day with doTERRA. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen.”
Amanda Olsen joined doTERRA for the business opportunity. The largest kit she could afford was the Family Physician Kit. She says, “That, honestly, was a huge stretch for us. I hadn’t spent $150 on something for as long as I could remember.” For a long time, all their focus had been on paying their rent and utilities and everything extra went by the wayside—including Christmas gifts, haircuts, and light bulbs. Amanda says, “Today, our doTERRA paychecks have absolutely changed our lives and given us a different future than the path we were on. We now have a path full of choices that we never thought we’d have.” Today, not only are the Olsens financially free, but fulfilled. Amanda says, “I live my life with more purpose and more freedom. I feel like it is my mission to help other people not only financially reach their dreams, but more importantly, reach their highest potential as individuals. With this, they are able to create exactly what they want out of life. That brings me so much joy and happiness.”
When Tami Nuhfer went to her first class, she had no idea what essential oils were and went just to be a good friend to the woman who had invited her. Her husband, Adam, had recently told her that she was going to have to go back to work, and she was worried about how she was going to manage that with her two daughters. These worries were in the back of her mind as she sat in this class, and by the end she thought that maybe doTERRA could be her answer. When Tami first hit Diamond, it was surreal for her to have arrived at the goal she had worked for for so long. She says, “What actually hit me the hardest was that I immediately wanted this for everyone else. I know my leaders and I know their struggles, and right then they mattered more to me. This financial freedom is such an amazing gift, and it’s a gift I want everyone to have.”
