Monika Batkova & Martina Valnickova EU Founder
Monika Batkova’s friend came to Slovakia and stayed with Monika while presenting dōTERRA essential oils to elderly people. She asked Monika to translate, but Monika was not interested in the oils. She was excited for Sharon to leave so they would stop smelling up her home. Then, she learned about the business opportunity and she was stunned. She had begun a different network marketing business just the month before, and she could tell the dōTERRA compensation plan was far superior. She was devoted to the business aspect from the very beginning. She says, “I think this is key for any new country that opens up for dōTERRA—you have to have a committed and fully devoted entrepreneur that believes in his or herself to start with.”
It actually took Monika about four months before she discovered what a “gift from heaven” the essential oils really were. She says, “Once you have a strong experience, nothing will ever stop you from getting these oils to every family you know, even if you are shy and introverted like me.” Monika has partnered with her friend, Martina Valnickova, as well as their husbands. She says, “We trust and support each other. dōTERRA is growing in Slovakia because of them.” Occasionally they will disagree, but they have learned that their differences make them stronger. She says, “I would not exchange the life I have now for anything in the world. I know so many people that have improved their lives and I personally have space for my dreams.”
Adam Copp & Rosie Greaney EU Founder
When we first started the business we thought that becoming a Diamond would mean something completely different than what it actually turned out to be. Initially we thought it was going to be about lifestyle and achievement, however, it has much to our delight turned out to be something much more valuable and rewarding. The process of refinement that we went through to achieve Diamond was something that challenged us both to the core. Rosie led the way and one of her key phrase was “are we acting like Diamonds right now?” Are we making the decisions, are we behaving and are we speaking like we should be.
We are always striving to be better and the key to our success has been to never give up and to constantly keep growing, changing and improving in every way we can. We had talked about hitting Diamond before, but we had never actually committed fully until Monday the 26th of October 2015. Rosie just decided that day that it was time for us to hit it once and for all, and after doing the numbers to see what was needed to be done, we went to work on getting it done. For us, Diamond was a pathway of sacrifice, personal development and a whole lot of overcoming our own limiting beliefs. Obviously our Leaders and their teams were pivotal to our achievement and we are forever grateful for their determination and vision in sharing the oils and achieving the goals. The greatest reward of October was seeing new levels of leadership emerge, new Silvers and a new Gold. Once people in your team start breaking leadership ranks it is the greatest feeling. Our Diamond rank paled in comparison to the feeling of happiness we felt seeing our leaders hit their goals. To make success contagious you need proof that more than just you can do it. You need Silvers, you need Golds and eventually Platinums and Diamonds. This eventually creates a Success Encouragement Team, a concept the late Roger Anthony taught us from the very beginning. Also if you can surround yourself with amazing people, anything is possible. From our close friends in the European Mastermind Group to our incredible leaders Seth & Rod, we are grateful for their friendship, mentoring and wisdom. We would like to dedicate our Diamond rank to our gorgeous little boy Paddy - he unknowingly helped us on every level in our business and gave us a lot of strength through some of the tougher days. We hope for him that he never knows any limitations, sees opportunity in all his challenges and has the strength and courage to never give up on his dreams.

What a tremendous two-year experience with dōTERRA it has been for us so far! First we just wanted to use the oils for ourselves but soon we felt that there was much more we had to do, we had to share the oils! And we had to find the right partners that would share the same mission with us.We are so blessed with our team! Becoming Diamond truly is a team effort. Therefore, it is not only us, who became Diamond, it’s our whole team!
We are forever grateful for Olaf and Patricia, both dedicated to empower others and sharing the oils together. They have a fun team with awesome leaders themselves and we expect all of them to shine much more during this year. What a funny coincidence it has been that we could cooperate with Judith, oh, and what a blessing to join her on this adventure. She is showing us how to turn your weakness into your strength, leading her amazing team with mindfulness and true vulnerability. We knew we had to bring the oils to our friend Thorsten, because he would feel them and as an author and health expert, Thorsten would be a great advocate for them. Thorsten is leading his own soon-to-be Diamond team with so much charisma and inspiration. His team is spread out over 7 different European countries, with great leaders in each country. Heike is not only family, she is soul family too, dedicated just as we are and combining her experience as emotional healing coach and reiki master with the power of aromatherapy. In a part of Germany, where internet is sometimes far to search for and many people do not speak English, she excels in becoming a self-supporting leader of a strong team, finding new ways of sharing the oils with others. We literally ordered a second Thorsten from the universe and got our delivery swiftly: Thorsten is a health expert too with many years of experience and his world got swooped just like ours when he felt the oils. Now he is sharing them with many other experts and creating a team of holistic health coaches in the Netherlands. Hendrika and Hussein are our newest leaders, passionate as we are, they keep surprising us with their experience and powerful vision. We love to co create with each member in our team and are dedicated to all our users, sharers and builders. Reaching Diamond together was a goal on our way. It feels as if the adventure has just begun! Thank you, dōTERRA for this awesome opportunity. Let’s change this world together.
Roger & Emmanuelle Duce EU Founder
Roger Duce worked with Emily Wright before she and the other founders started dōTERRA. He kept in contact with her, and eventually decided to join dōTERRA as a corporate employee. At the same time, his wife, Emmanuelle’s good friend Brianne Hovey wanted Emmanuelle to join her dōTERRA team as a Wellness Advocate. At first, Emmanuelle was not interested. She had a very busy job and no time for anything else. A few years later, she had to leave her job for health reasons, and Brianne approached her again about dōTERRA. This time, Emmanuelle discovered that the product really worked and other people wanted it. Before long, she made the decision to become a Wellness Advocate.
When Roger quit his job to join her, it was a transition for both of them. He says, “It was the first time that I really had to confront that I was involved in network marketing…Now, I had to look myself in the mirror and say, ‘You came to England to get an MBA, and now you’re a network marketer.’ That was a challenge for me.” Both Roger and Emmanuelle had been managers before, and they quickly learned that that style of leadership does not work in a dōTERRA team. Emmanuelle says, “You can enable or you can empower. If I do everything for people, that sends the wrong message. Putting the ball back in their court and validating their choices is much more powerful. Since doing that, we have seen our team moving on their own, because we are not hovering over them.”
Christian Neudel & Gabriela Häußner EU Founder
The journey is the goal! We are excited to have reached the 1. Diamond position in Germany under this motto. This is a team effort that develops through a clear focus, a goal oriented pursuit and continuity. That’s why we want to thank our whole team, our upline Lill Shephard and dōTERRA itself, who gave us the foundational opportunity to be on this journey.
We want to encourage everyone to follow us; dōTERRA is an unusual company with a high retention rate, a product with value and awareness that reaches every person, a company that presents solid growth and is focused on the customer. Let us all together follow this path towards essential oils, a path, that very clearly carries personal development, brings financial freedom and which strengthens the foundations of a family. dōTERRA is a secret tip in the market which brings a giant growth. We are both happy, to be able to be a part of this in Europe.
Mario Jolly & Sabine Buchner EU Founder
For us, dōTERRA is the biggest gift and greatest opportunity in our lives. Our life changed by 180 degrees. We started out with nothing. And we had been a couple for only two months. We overcame many obstacles. We had a vision and strong faith. But what pushed us the most was the gratefulness of people, who are doing better health wise and financially through dōTERRA .
At the beginning of our journey it was about us, that we can survive and that the money won’t be depleted by the beginning of the next month. But through the years, our whole mission in dōTERRA developed to something greater. It’s no longer about us, but about helping people in all aspects. Be it being able to take responsibility for their health, to afford a life, to dare to dream, to have relationships, improve family quality. dōTERRA gives us the best tools. Gifts of the earth have supported so many good things. We were gifted this oil baby. dōTERRA changes the world including the people. dōTERRA means to respect the gift of the earth and to establish the relationship with it, as well as to build respect and appreciation for the people.rnWe have the best team! Together we developed, laughed and cried together, supported each other to enfold our potential and created something great. Most importantly we helped thousands of people to gain life quality again. Oilsempowerteam rocks!
All it took was one drop of Peppermint in a glass of water for Tanya Maidment to fall in love with dōTERRA. She had experience with several direct selling companies and had always known that it was a great business model, but she had never found a product she truly loved, or a company that inspired her. Within a week of receiving her first products, Tanya found herself involved in the business. She already had a business, and saw that the oils would fit well with that. She says, “I saw that it was an opportunity to work from home, follow my dreams, live my passion, and change lives.”
Though she had never been a good salesperson before, sharing dōTERRA came easily for her. Her husband supported her as she grew her business because he saw how important it was to her. Tanya says, “He doesn’t let me get away with excuses. He’s very good at making sure that I keep focused on the important things.” As she has grown her business, she has realized the importance of delegating and making sure that she uses her time wisely. Tanya made the goal to reach Diamond because of the life it would provide for her family. She says, “Remember why you started sharing these oils. Be patient and listen to your intuition.”
Tim & Emily Mascarenhas
We achieved the rank of platinum back in November which we were so excited about. Since then we have now found ourselves as Diamonds in the space of a month which we cannot quite believe! Since starting dōTERRA back in 2015 it has been a wonderful rollercoaster. dōTERRA sent us the most beautiful bouquet of flowers and tomorrow baby Ziggy and I are flying to Austria to attend the dōTERRA leadership summit in the mountains. All this for just sharing something you love!
Life is so exciting right now for our family. We are incredibly grateful for our AMAZING team of uplines and downlines and the support from everyone at dōTERRA. Here\'s to an AMAZING 2017 for dōTERRA and for all the people whose lives we will touch.

We used to have a profession, today we have a calling. The possibilities that the oils of dōTERRA offer to help other people are very, very great. It is not just about health and wellness issues, but also about emotional matters and lastly also about finances. The opportunity to help other people is really fulfilling for us. There is simply nothing better than an excited call from someone we\'ve recommended the oils to who reported his success stories! That makes us happy.
We have been working at dōTERRA since April 2016. Before that, we both worked in senior positions in large companies in northern Germany. We know a lot about classic marketing. That was our job. However, we knew almost nothing about network marketing and essential oils. But we were always open to natural solutions to our health, even with our children. We came to dōTERRA through an old friend whom we had not seen for more than 20 years. He just sent us the family wellness kit. And we loved the toothpaste immediately! So that is how we started in the oil business. The old friend - Adheesh Piel, a Blue Diamond in Australia - is now our upline, and together with Santoshi, his wife and Nat & Andy Goddard he is one of our most important guides. Good advice is always needed, because the tasks change again and again. And besides a good upline you need a good team, of course - and we have that. If we have learned one thing, then the rule is \"Take care of your team. There is nothing more important!\"

Little over a year ago I started building my dōTERRA business. It has been an amazing journey so far, which has just begun. I love the products, the company, the co-impact sourcing, Healing Hands, team Wild Orange, the people in dōTERRA and my fantastic upline. Everyday I jump out of bed to start doing what I love most, helping people with the oils and coaching my team. The results are incredible in many ways.
For everybody who has doubts about dōTERRA, the opportunity, the oils or network marketing - Go for it! Your dreams can come true. Mine were huge: make this world a better place for the people, animals, plants and earth itself. All my life I wondered where to start. With dōTERRA I found the answer, my passion and purpose. I want to thank everybody who has been part of this journey so far. You are all amazing! Diamond is a team effort and I feel blessed to have reached this rank so fast. Now let\'s duplicate Diamond 😉
What a special journey! When I got to know the oils of doTERRA about 2.5 years ago, I immediately felt that a special treasure came into my life. Today as a doTERRA Diamond I am so grateful that I have followed my feelings and shared the oils with people. This was the beginning of a wonderful journey that has changed my life.
Today I can certainly say that I have found my calling. It is so incredibly fulfilling that I can implement my mission to help other people to have the strength and power they need in every aspect - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I feel so much passion in sharing the oils and thus have something in hand, that the world really needs. I am grateful for the fact that with this work I also have a financial freedom and can do so much with the money that I earn. There have been so many friendships and I am grateful for a great team and an incredible upline. It is touching to see how many people in my team are developing into true leaders and growing beyond themselves. Together we can change the world. Drop by drop. Thanks doTERRA for the special spirit and integrity that shows me day by day that I have made a good choice. I feel blessed! And I know this is only the beginning of a long journey that I will take with my team. We will bring the gift of the earth into the world!
Miška & Roman Začka
We have 3rd anniversary since we opened our lives to dōTERRA. There were more milestones crossed to build the organization and reaching ranks, more intuitively then structurally at the beginning I have to admit. With Gold rank in December 2015 came the moment which meant strengthening the belief that everything is possible.\r\n
Year 2016 passed in an effort to stabilize the Gold and hope to get closer to Platinum. More planning and structuring was needed in that time. My big help was Roman, my husband who supported me from the beginning and after lecturing about motivation and simplification of understanding the business in dōTERRA at our event he decided to join me partially. The most interesting experience we brought from Bulgaria, where we touched manufacture of essential oils, met the people who are behind dōTERRA corporate and experts who work at extracting of\r\nscents. These moments were ground for our common journey in dōTERRA. Finally, my husband decided to join dōTERRA full-time after Elite Retreat in Načeradec, organized by our excellent uplines Allyse and Patrik Šedivý. Big thanks to both of them plus Martinka, Monika, Sharon, and our leaders and team, who all are our friends, our inspiration and also a challengers. Our main attributes in life are faith and love. On December 17 we have discovered in office rank Platinum so Diamond opportunity\r\nwas our unexpected goal. The last days of the year were so exciting, it all clicked at the right time and miracle just happened. It is an inspiration and commitment for us and motivation for those around us too. We have become the second Diamonds in Slovakia. Our confidence and trust in products and company\r\ndōTERRA is strong and we are ready to maintain and develop this achievement.\r\nWhat is our tip for success? It is you and your decisions. Your interest, deep identification with quality of products, dedication and personal experience with oils. It will move you to the level that you have never even dreamed about. At the beginning, or at any stage of the business, where you recently are, is important to honestly and deeply answer what is your own WHY? you do dōTERRA. You will soon realize the benefits that this effort brings to you and to your surroundings. This will help you to focus your activities and energy and pass safely the crucial moments of doubts, if they come. And do not forget one of the greatest strengths of dōTERRA is the willingness of the team to share their experiences. There is a lot of successful and inspiring people around you, so take advantage of this potential and do not be afraid to ask. Also\r\nbe able to find time to read the materials, newsletters and so on. It will move you forward faster because the wheel has already been invented ... In dōTERRA we are never alone. I believe that real interests about the people around you, a sincere effort to understand them and help, your enthusiasm, commitment and knowledge of the rising oils will transfer into success in reaching your goals. But the dreams must always be dreamed and when they turn into reality, then we feel that life has a meaning. We wake up each morning with the feeling that we are devoting our effort to something which really make sense – source of the real happiness. We feel thankful and blessed and we wish to all of you to feel the same as soon as possible. Thumbs up, our family :-).
