new message executive diamonds favorite quote “You can be anything you want to be, if only you believe with sufficient conviction and act in accordance with your faith; for whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” —Napoleon Hill ­ became pregnant that Rachel gained a desire to shift her life towards natural health. She applied for a job at a health food store in Provo, Utah and became a wellness consultant. She worked in health and beauty where essential oils were prevalent. The essential oils she used while working there would often go rancid, so she would keep them refrigerated. She attached little value to the oils because of their poor quality. One day, Natalie Goddard called and invited Rachel to her home. She had a bottle of dōTERRA peppermint essential oil and wanted to know what Rachel thought. When Rachel first tried the oil, her response was immediate. “What is this? If this is an essential oil, then what was the other stuff I was using?” That experience alone inspired Rachel to become a part of dōTERRA. However, at the time Rachel was home schooling her children and had no idea how to do two big things at once. “Natalie took off. She kept saying ‘come with me,’ but I just didn’t know how.” Rachel said. In the summer of 2011, Rachel decided to quit homeschooling and said, “I’m in!” Rachel went home knowing that she would never get anywhere if she didn’t believe. She immediately sat down and began writing out her goals. She chose the month she would achieve Diamond. She wrote out her structure, penciling in the names of her leaders, their future ranks, and the date they would acheve it. Rachel said, “I would joke with my team and say, ‘well my goal is Diamond, so I guess yours is Silver.’” She kept things light and fun, but by writing it out she was able to focus and believe. Her team stepped up, they reached ranks faster, and she was forced to adjust her goal from August to July. Rachel is a firm believer in visualization. She feels that with a goal or vision, a person can break through any barrier because they see farther. Her goal as a leader is to support her team by being a sounding board, by inspiring them, and by never allowing them to give up. Rachel said, “I want them to see that it’s not as difficult as it sometimes seems.” She feels that it’s okay to feel uncomfortable because that is what pushes us to progress. Rachel said, “It’s when we feel comfortable that we need to step up and push ourselves. It’s up to us to succeed. We are our own boss.” From Product User to Dynamic Leader The Jones family in Hobble Creek Canyon, UT 13
