We’ll be having 2 kinds of classes; oil classes called The Essential Oil Experience & business classes called The Business of Being a Lemon Dropper.

The Essential Oil Experience

We’ll be hosting The Essential Oil Experience on November 15 (11:00am, 3:00pm, 7:00pm) and November 18 (11:00am). 4 classes total.

I’m going to walk you through the entire starter kit plus a few additional must-have oils and show you how to use them. This event is only $10 (US) for tickets to keep costs down. If you sign up with this link  for your “NEW Premium Starter Kit” between now and November 18th, you’ll get a $20 credit on your Young Living account toward your next order after the event. You’ll be signed up with me to take care of you and help you learn all the ins and outs of this Lemon Dropper thing, which I can’t wait to do. The Premium Starter kit has 11 oils, some samples AND a diffuser!! You’ll also receive a Lemon Dropper handbook, which is a 64-page, full-color reference book, at the class as your gift for signing up.

We will have some premium starter kits (11 oils + diffuser) on-hand at the events (as supplies last) for those of you that want to sign up there and take your oils home right away. Signing up before the event will ensure that you get your oils before the class starts so you have a chance to get to know them and your diffuser before we give you all of the details on how to use them.

We will also have a pop-up Lemon Drop Shop there at the event for additional reference materials for you and your friends.

The Business of Young Living Essential Oils

This is an event for you if you are creating a Young Living business or if you’re interested in learning more about it. A little about me, I built a multi-million dollar producing, Royal Crown Diamond business in under a year and a half with Young Living Essential Oils. At this event, you’ll get information from me and my team on what it takes to create a successful business including a compensation plan break-down, information on using social media, attracting a niche market, and more.

Here are the details on this event:

I hope to see you all in Singapore in November for these classes!

So, This Happened…

Recently, I was sent an email with a few questions from Young Living to answer about my business. I’m humbled to be asked but also excited to tell our story. I hope it’s inspiring to know that it can be done. Success is possible…it’s all about hustle. Check the interview here:

Lindsay Teague Moreno: A Personal Chat

Lindsay Teague Moreno Royal Crown Diamond

I really, honestly, and truly believe that anyone can make this business their business if you work with a combination of heart and hustle. If you’re willing to do any job asked of you, you can have it all.

We’re reading the book QBQ! by John G. Miller right now in our book club and it’s all about personal accountability and eliminating blame, victim thinking, complaining and procrastination. If you’re willing to take your success into your own hands, you will succeed. It might not be on your time table, but it will happen. Would you say 10 years of work is worth a life without debt, 9-5 hours, missing your kids’ milestones, the ability to drop everything and go anywhere whenever you feel like it?

I’d say it is. So if it takes you 2 years, great. If it takes you 10, that’s great, too. You’re right on time to create your own future.

Refuse to fail.

Your Essential Oils Questions Answered: Everything You Need to Know in One Place

So I got TONS of questions and all that good stuff blowing up my inbox after I posted about the essential oils I’ve been using recently. If you wrote me and we didn’t connect, PLEASE do it again, I was SLAMMED. There were quite a few logistical questions about how to use the Young Living Essential Oils. After writing lengthy emails a few times, I decided to just make a little video demonstration the 3 ways that I use them.

During this video, you’ll enjoy the fact that I can’t think of the word “dilute,” I lose half of the capsule to make and take a lemon pill, my kids run in circles around me and try to make me scream at them on camera. Additionally, you’ll enjoy the fact that I’m a GIANT dork. It’s a good time, even if you think these oils are a bunch of malarky.

I know this sounds like I’ve totally joined a cult or something, but I swear to you, I am just so happy with this unexpected change in my life. I just didn’t see this coming. I didn’t even want to become a member because I was so unsure of how well these were going to work. Once I got my first set of oils, though, it was on! I wish I had the money to buy every. single. last. one of those oils. I swear to you, that’s the truth.

Personally, I was violently shoved into becoming a distributor once my friends started trying them after me and wanted to sign up for the everyday oils kit. I’m so glad I did because I’ve met an amazing “team” of people (The Lemon Droppers) that do this whole business a little differently than I have ever seen or experienced (also I get my oils paid for, which my husband thinks is the best part of the deal, but that’s a different story…which I’m willing to tell if you want to hear it). I believe this is a total God thing (exclamation moment, if you will). I believe this is going to play a significant role in how we medicate and how we live from now until it’s my time. However, becoming a YL member doesn’t mean you have to make silly videos like mine or that you have to decide to talk about them during every conversation (seriously, it’s like a sickness. i told the chick that was matching my skin to some new makeup the other day about them and I realized I had a problem). You can just do this all alone and not tell a soul. That’s all you. Whatever floats your boat (I’ll just bet you talk about them).

You guys, I swear to you, I’m not saying all of this to make a dime. I wish you could feel my heart when I tell you that I know this will help you if you’re hurting (physical, mental, etc). I’ve seen them help my friend that was suffering and I’ve seen it in my own life. If you know me, you know that I don’t like to see my friends take meds. These are actually good for you. Each one serves multiple purposes in your body and will make you feel better. I don’t think a fix for a migraine is a good tradeoff for bad liver or stomach bleeding, but I get it because I took 5 advil at a time just to get rid of the dang headache quick. Ain’t nobody got time for that! It just DOES NOT have to be that way. I wish I had known before 2 months ago. Now it’s all I can talk about…obviously.

If you would like to purchase Young Living Essential Oils, you need to order through a member. You can become a memeber and get the oils at 24% off yourself plus access to the a group called “A Drop a Day,” which is a facebook group where we talk about oils. This is a place not put out by Young Living, it’s exclusive to our “team” of members. This is simply a place where people that sign up to become members can communicate with one another, share what is working for them, ask questions and hopefully build life long relationships with others who are on this journey to a more healthy and natural lifestyle. I have spent countless hours looking things up online and researching what oils are good for what. Hopefully this group will help cut your searching time down and get your questions answered quickly. Once you become a member, you will be given access into the message board (it may take 24 hours to gain access).

Once you buy your starter kit (which I’ll explain those later), you are NEVER required to order a certain amount each month. You are NEVER required to tell others about Young Living. You are NEVER bothered by people to work this as a business (if you are, you email me ASAP because Homie don’t play that). You simply are now able to purchase at the discounted price. Think of this like a SAMS Club or COSTCO membership. You pay a small charge to become a member to get cheaper prices. The only thing different is SAMS or COSTCO give you a card…Young Living gives you starter oils and a coupon for a diffuser.

Young Living Premium Starter Kit

The initial kit, called the Everyday Oils (comes with 11 oils and a diffuser) is $150 (over $300 in this kit, yo). 15ml bottles of Frankincense and Panaway oils in the kit ALONE cost more than $150 (amazing oils), so it’s a great deal to try these out and see what you can do for yourself and your family. It’s called the Everyday Oils kit because you can use them for everyday things, like this:

Young Living Diffuser Combos

Here are the instructions on signing up for a kit, if you’re ready to do so (I know this is generic, I just SERIOUSLY wrote this in email like 18 times, so might as well have it here):

1. Click here to go to the enrollment site
2. Here you will start to fill out the info. Make sure you leave the “member” button clicked so that you can get your discount and make sure that the SPONSOR ID and ENROLLER ID boxes say 1403816.
3. Fill out all your info and select the kit (the most versatile is the Start Living with Everyday Oils, I believe).
4. It DOES ask for your SS#…Why? Well, because you do have the capability now to turn this into a business ONLY if you desire to. They are required to get that to pay you. You never know…your friends may want to order from you one day. Boom, get those oils paid for! 😉 No pressure, you never know if it happens to you the way it happened to me.
5. Create your pin and password (this is the number you need if you need to call in or get live help online). Remember them!!
6. Accept the terms and click next.
7. DONE! Seriously, you have to a) write me an email to tell me you did it (lindsayteague@gmail.com, but b) keep me updated about how you are doing with them. I love to hear it. Seriously. I do.

What do you think? Are you ready to do this? I have got an amazing team called the Lemon Droppers that have, like me, started using these oils and are loving them. Come join us!

Lindsay Teague Moreno

So, you want an update…

Clearly, I’m too busy to blog. I’m too busy to even walk across my room to get coffee in the morning. I welcome this busy because it is serving my family well. I LOVE my job. Did I mean to get a job this year? Nope. Did I mean to throw a wrench in the plans our family had as far as my husband’s career is concerned? Nope. Did God care what I meant to do? You guessed it, nope. We are here and we are walking through the doors that He is opening for us.

I have been asked for an update on how business was shaping up since last I wrote (summer) and I’ve finally decided that it’s time to just write it. What you’re looking at here is a 1-year-at-a-glance business outline. I’m showing it to you guys so you know it’s doable and real, not so I can do the happy dance with you. I do the happy dance every day when I think about this stuff…I do, don’t judge. If you’re reading this, you’re probably a) friends with a lemon dropper b) curious about what to expect or c) have no idea what I’m talking about, in which case, “hi! sorry for the regular blog hijack!” I hope this information helps you on your path. If it’s to become a Lemon Dropper, that’s awesome. If it’s to just use the oils for your family, that’s awesome too, because, guys, the oils are LEGIT!!!

 

FEBRUARY

I started with Young Living in February. I got my kit (which I paid $150 for 11 oils and have run a train on those things) and had 2 friends that said they wanted to try a few oils too and they signed up right behind me with my number. I still wasn’t sure that this whole oils business was for me as far as the direct marketing thing, but I sure was down to get my oils paid for every month, and so, that was my goal. I’ll just sign up enough people so that I can have free oils every month. SCORE. Here’s what February looked like for me
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 6
Total number of people “under me”: 8 (one person that signed up under me signed up 2 people)
Check total for February: $389.82
There were 8 people in my “team” at the end of the first month of having these oils in my house. What did I do to get them? I just posted a couple of pictures of my oils on my facebook so that my friends could see what I was up to and I told the truth about what I thought about them. What did I not do? chase people down. I never once sent an email to someone who didn’t ask me for information first and that’s the God’s honest truth. That’s not my bag. At this point,  I was not open to doing this as a business so it never occurred to me that people would try to “sell” this product.

 

MARCH

Totally shocked by the fact that in my first month with almost no work, I was able to get my oils paid for plus some, I decided, “hmmmm, maybe this could work in March too.” By this time, my friend, Monique, who has the same vision for what does and does not work in this arena started putting together videos with strategies on how to most effectively earn the most money within the YL payout confines. It’s a numbers game and she figured it out. The awesome thing about that? I didn’t have to sit and watch the compensation video 800 times to get it. She did it for me and then spelled it out for me so that I could understand it. So, I just continued doing what I was doing, I started to understand the pay structure through YL and I started directing my friends that thought they might be interested in working the business to the same videos. Here’s what March looked like:
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 4
Total People that were signed “under me” (this includes the previous month as well, it just keeps building): 28
Check total for March: $640.94
Unknowingly, in March, I laid a lot of foundation. I build a new Brand alongside Monique for the Lemon Droppers, I decided 100% I was going to do this thing after I was inspired to create a marketing piece to explain how to use oils. I answered A LOT of emails…a lot. Obviously, they didn’t all sign up in March, though. Which is cool. I don’t chase people and I don’t pressure people. So let’s move onto April.

 

APRIL

April was the first full month that I was in this thing for the long haul and I was now not only looking to get my oils paid for, I was prepared to make money.  A lot of it. The more the better. If I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it, dang it! I was divinely inspired to start creating marketing one night at the end of the previous month and it was out of my hands after that. It was a BIG month. What did I do differently? Not a thing. I answered emails, I posted what I’m up to and what I think the oils could do for people, I made some marketing materials that I believe are relevant and not cheesy, typical, multi-level stuff, I posted pictures and I was honest about what these oils were doing for my family. That’s the key. I am being so real about them. I’m not going to compromise that about this adventure.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 26
Total People that were signed “under me” (this includes the previous months as well, it just keeps building): 97
Check total for April: $3,033.15

 

MAY

Month #4 for me. May was the beginning of summer and the first month that is typically much slower than the previous months and the fall months. Every month I get nervous that what we did the previous months were just a fluke but despite the typically slow months we still grew. Our growth rate was slower than in April but we still grew by 165%! WHAT?!?!
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 23
Total People that were signed “under me” (this includes the previous months as well, it just keeps building): 207
Check total for May: $3,686,16

 

JUNE

June was my 5th month. Again, June is a summer month, which means slow growth for most people. We took it as a challenge this month and really worked to organize our large number and make sure we were prepared for the fall. Our growth was 160%!
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 10
Total People that were signed “under me” (this includes the previous months as well, it just keeps building): 358
Check total for June: $4,824.36

 

JULY

Month #6. We weren’t sure how July was going to go because YL was making some changes to their starter kit. We thought we had enough momentum to really bring it home with the awesome deal on the new kit, but we just weren’t sure if people were going to be as excited about it as we were. You know how you get all jacked up about things and other people are like, “ummm, what’s the big deal?” Well, we sure didn’t want that. Good news, the new kit was a GIGANTIC home run and we more than doubled our business from the months previous.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 22
Total People that were signed “under me” (this includes the previous months as well, it just keeps building): 824
Check total for July: $7,623.00

 

AUGUST

Ugh…August. Tough month. I was literally blindsided by a massive kidney stone in August. HUGE. 5-6mm. That sucker would NOT come out. I dealt with it for the month of August. Guess how much I worked? Yea, not a lot. That doesn’t mean we didn’t still see growth, however because I don’t do this alone. I have the best team in all the land and we work with each other, not against. We have a common vision and it is exciting…even when you feel like you’re dying.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 8
Total number of people “under me”: 1,172
Check total for August: $5,813.32

 

SEPTEMBER

In September I had kidney surgery to have my stone removed and a stent was put in. Let me tell you what, I’ll never, ever, ever do that again. I’d rather suffer with a stone than feel that kind of bladder pain. I finally got back into the swing by the end of the month. Between August and September I feel like the slow growth as a whole was my own fault for not being “in” during that time.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 14
Total People that were signed “under me”): 1,495
Check total for September: $7,084.35

 

OCTOBER

We were really working in October. I was knee-deep in 2 huge marketing projects for our team and our growth was big. Real big. At this point we had started seeing a lot of replication of our own success below us and we KNEW we were onto something really special and really rare. It was an amazing month.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 17
Total People that were signed “under me”: 2,192
Check total for October: $8,815.23

 

NOVEMBER

Prepping for Christmas. It was a crazy month…crazy awesome. Seriously, I have no words about the place my paycheck has gone from this month on. Clearly, God is driving this train down the tracks because it’s moving with our without me.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 12
Total People that were signed “under me”: 3,050
Check total for November: $12,156.40

 

DECEMBER

December was my first vacation since I started on this oils thing. It was much needed and I was completely away from work for 11 days. Christmas also means a bit slower month as people are busy and focused on their families…as they should be. Still saw growth but just not at our average 60%.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 6
Total People that were signed “under me”: 4,177
Check total for December: $14,226.39

 

JANUARY

Wow. Just wow. January blew away my expectations. So big. We had a HUGE jump. This team is blowing. my. mind. I can’t believe this journey. I can’t believe how big this is. I can’t believe what a huge blessing this has been. I just can’t believe it. It almost makes me ugly face cry because who am I? It’s so beyond me. I truly have the most amazing, enthusiastic, excited team that cares more about the product than the paycheck and THAT, my friends, is the key. The oils are so good and the money is a great, big, giant cherry on top of that sundae.
Total People that signed up to try the oils: 6
Total People that were signed “under me”: 6,355
Check total for January: $23,354.13

Here’s YL’s income disclosure statement so you can see the average incomes, which has the “weird factor” that I try to avoid in this business, but it’s required to post if I’m going to be honest with you about my numbers: http://tinyurl.com/olth4sy. Why do typical direct sales people always have to make this business weird? I’ll never understand…but I digress.

So…what are your thoughts? If you’re thinking to yourself, “this can’t be real” yea, I feel you. You can believe that I’m thinking the same thing. If your’e thinking, “this is too good to be true,” yea, me too. If you’re thinking, “there’s no way I can do that,” I’m gonna have to stop you there because I’ve seen too many people do exactly this behind me to support you on that. It all starts with loving the oils. Truly it does. If you do that, the rest will follow you. It just will. This is my path. This is where I’m supposed to be and I’ve never loved a “job” so much in my life…ever. The Lemon Droppers are a special group. We do things differently, we’re breaking the mold, we couldn’t be more excited about it.

You guys know you can always come to me with questions and I’m willing to be 100% transparent with you. I want to take all of the weird and the mystery out of this. Always.

 

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things…

I haven’t done this kind of post in a while. I’m due! Let’s get to it shall we?

1. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Perfume

Chanel Chance Perfume

Have you guys smelled this stuff? I smelled it on vacation when my sister in law let me use some of her perfume when I forgot to apply one evening and I am in LOVE with it. I ran out to get some as soon as I got back. It smells different on different body chemistries. I got 3 compliments on how good I smelled the day I bought it. I’m telling you, it’s good. There are 3 different scents in the Chance line. I got the pink. Awesome. The French lady that helped me at Nordies told me it’s their best selling perfume and that the ingredients aren’t commonly used in perfume right now.

2. Young Living Essential Oils

You didn’t think I was going to leave this off, did you? No, no, me either. I can’t go an hour without using one right now so they’re going on this list! The everyday oils is a great place to start if you haven’t ever tried EO’s before simply because of the HUGE variety of oils that come in the kit. I am seriously diggin Purification and Frankincense these days for headaches and acne. If you haven’t jumped on board yet, I just don’t know what you’re waiting for…they’re that good. PROMISE.

Young Living Premium Starter Kit

3. The Lemon Droppers

I’ve been writing a few blog posts over at The Lemon Droppers recently. You know how it’s hard to just find friends after you leave college? It’s just kinda tough to find that social network to plug into and be who you are. THIS is that for me.

Lindsay Teague Moreno Royal Crown Diamond Young Living Essential Oils

I was getting so tired of begging Michael to tell me the details of his day just to have an adult to talk to. This group shined a light on who I want to be and what I’m capable of doing. Love that we have a place to talk oils and talk life and I love spreading the stories about what these oils are really capable of. Just so you know, you belong.

4. Pic-Tap-Go

Behold the power of Totally Rad Actions on your cell phone. Pic-Tap-Go. I can’t post an instagram without it. I’m not even kidding you. I try and I just can’t post it without running it through this app first. My favorite actions are High Fives, Sweet Tooth, Brightside and Lux.

Here’s a video.

PicTapGo! The photo app that likes you back. from Totally Rad! on Vimeo.

See? Cool. Go buy the app. Totally worth a couple of bucks. Plus, the logo? Adorable. Love it.

5. Lush Bath Products

So, I made the huge mistake of happening upon a Lush store on my girls night out with my friends Liz and Stacy a couple of weeks ago. It’s horrifyingly expensive in there but you get what you pay for (100% believe that in pretty much any facet of life) and you’re gonna get a good product for your hard earned money. Also the people are WAY over-the-top excited and enthusiastic about the way you bathe yourself (think high school drama club enthusiastic), but it’s kinda nice considering the state of customer service at most stores these days.

lushilicious
I tried the Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub. LOVE. Smells like heaven and is great for creating soft skin.

I also tried the Floating Island Bath Melt. TDF, y’all. Soooooo soft. You gotta try it.

6. Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Bar (Peanut)

So, my mother-in-law is the woman that is prepared for any situation. When we met in California for vacation last month, she came prepared to feed and take care of an army. In her bag (read: 8 bags) of tricks, she had some of these Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Bars. God love her for bringing these and keeping my kids happy at Disney Land. Love that woman.

Sweet & Salty Nut Bars
Now, I’m not a peanut butter girl and I am SURE not a nuts fan, but I LOVE these things. It tastes similar to a Scotcharoo a little bit but only better for you and no chocolate. I can’t explain it. They’re just awesome. I bought 2 boxes at Costco last week lest they stop carrying them between now and refill day.

7. Starbucks Customizable Cold Cup with Straw

Stop it right now. I love this thing. I got the double-extra-grande-venti sized cup (or 24 ounces for those of you that aren’t down with the ‘bux lingo) for my water and I use it every day. The straw won’t come out the top when my kids pull on it. It doesn’t condensate down the sides because it’s double lined.

Starbucks Tumbler

oh Starbucks, i love your clean marketing and the fact that you’re on every corner in this city I now live in.

8. Soma Vanishing Edge Panties (…nope, can’t even write that word without feeling gross) Underwear

Soma. Why did I not shop here before this year? WHY? Is it strange that I’m telling you what kind of underwear I wear? Probably, but I don’t even care. They’re amazing.

Soma-Vanishing-Edge-Panties-e1309221930790
They don’t ride (seriously, they don’t) and they don’t show lines (seriously, they don’t).

Soma_Vanishing_Edge_Panties

Yep. Go buy some. They’re like buy 3, get 2 free every day. The bikini style is my fave with the hipsters close behind (no pun intended).

9. Project Life Honey Edition

Shut your mouth, how cute is this kit?

Lindsay Teague Moreno Project Life
I die of cuteness. I think this is the one I’m most excited about for this year’s releases!!! Run over to AC Digitals and get ya some of this kit.

So that’s all I’ve got. Any of you tried any of these things? Anybody have anything that they can’t stop talking about and using lately? Love to hear it.

Project Life 2013 Week 6

What’s up, week 6 of 2013! It was good to live you.

This week I was very photo heavy (20 photos), so I used a lot of mini templates (thankyouverymuch, Cathy Zielske). I don’t think it looks overly cluttered, though, which is why these templates are a must-have for my Project Life spreads.

Let’s get to it, shall we?
