Gina Truman: "My Job vs. Your Job"
So, the other day I got into a conversation with an old friend about doTERRA. He asked why, after 9 years, I continue working so hard. I asked him what made him feel like I work so hard. He then told me because I’m always talking, teaching, traveling, mentoring, selling, sharing, thinking and pursuing doTERRA. He told me doTERRA had consumed my life. I asked him if he thought there was something wrong with that. He said, “No, not at all, I guess I just envy you and think I might be in the wrong business, but it’s too late.” I told him it was never too late!
This particular guy spent more than 4 years of post graduate school and had, what any of us would consider, a pretty great job. The difference between his job and mine??
I am my own boss - he has a boss
I am building my own dreams - he is building somebody else's dreams
I set my own hours - somebody else mostly sets his hours
I can take time off whenever ever I want - he has to ask for time off
I choose where I travel for work - he travels where he's told for work
I get to spend a lot of quality time with family - his time is monopolized by his job so he misses a lot of family time
I am blessed with the an amazing residual income. If I quit tomorrow (which I will not!), I will continue getting paid - if he quits tomorrow his paycheck quits and he'll eventually run out of savings and have to get another job, with another boss, who will tell him when, where, and how hard to work.
I choose my business partners - he doesn't choose his partners, they choose him. Although, he's hoping in about 5-6 years he'll be to the point he can choose his business partners.
I am part of a company who is changing and improving lives all over the world - he is in an office most days where he is on the phone putting out fires and trying to make stressful decisions, which in turn, hopes to keep the company he works for alive.
I get to serve, help, teach, mentor and love on people every single day - he gets to meet with people who bring problems, contention and stress into his job every single day.
In other words...
Which job would you rather have? Mine, or his?
Because, guess what? I don’t know how it gets any better than this! I absolutely LOVE what I do! I love the people I get to share my days with no matter where I am in the world. I get to help heal the world one drop at a time. And do you know what? From my experience there's not a more full filling job than the one WE have!
So yes, if it seems like doTERRA consumes my life by traveling all over the world and helping others understand the importance of doTERRA and the amazing lifestyle it provides, then I would start all over again tomorrow if I had to!!
What about you? What do you love about your doTERRA life/business?
