3 X 2 X 4 Commission Summary


04-27-2019 Zoom Meeting 

Have you ever noticed when you need something then all of the sudden people every where tell you they have just what you need (or know someone who does). Ever wonder why that happens? It took me years to figure it out but finally I realized it was because I became excited about my project and could not resist telling every person I talked to about it. I was not trying to get them to do it too. I was just excited about doing it and so I brought it up in the conversation and SHARED it with them. Get that key word? SHARED... I was not trying to sell them anything. But when I told them I was building a raised box garden and looking for used cinder blocks they then told me their uncle has some he wants to get rid of. Why did they tell me that? Because I SHARED my passion with them. That happens to me all the time. A couple of years ago our lawn mower quit. Within weeks it was raining lawn mowers. Because I told every one I talked to about my woes with the lawn mower, several of them told me they had one they wanted to get rid of. I ended up with 2 push mowers and 3 riding lawn mowers for about $300. That is the key to building your Young Living business. STOP TRYING TO SELL THE OILS. START JUST SHARING YOUR EXCITEMENT ABOUT THEM. Then you will see it will start raining people into your down line. This presentation was about sharing you WHY not WHAT you do in the oil's business or HOW you do the oils business. You need to find your WHY. WHY are you doing this business? Then share that with every person you talk to and your business will grow like a beautiful garden in the sun shine. That is why I called this presentation INSIDE OUT SUCCESS. If you tell them WHAT AND HOW you are selling from the OUTSIDE TO THE INSIDE. If you tell them your WHY first and start with the inside and move out to HOW AND WHAT you will find success at every turn. Thus INSIDE OUT SUCCESS!

03-23-2019 Zoom Meeting

In our meeting this week we discussed the importance of getting a person's contact information when you talk to them.  If you just get their name and leave them your business card hoping they will call you, then you are mistaking activity for accomplishment.  It is very unlikely they will remember to call you.  Chris always pulls out two business cards. On the back of one she writes down the date and time she talked to them.  She then gives them that card.  On the second business card she writes down the date and time she met them AND.... THEIR NAME AND PHONE NUMBER.  That is her copy to keep.  Then in a few days if they have not called her she calls them.  THIS IS A CRITICAL STEP TO LEARN IN SUCCESSFUL SHARING OF THE BUSINESS PLAN.  If you don't get their name and phone number then you are just doing things to make you feel good and giving you a sense of being busy.  Being busy is not being effective.  Click on this link to see a copy of her business card front and back.

Here is a web page worth
looking at to share with the new people you sign up:

The Oil Posse - Think Inside The Box



Cordell Vail's YL Team Business Plan


We have found the best way to be successful in building your Young Living business is to specialize in one area of the oils that most interests you. For example one of our down line has become an expert in oils for animals. Another has specialized in oils for emergency preparedness as a alternative medicine if a time comes when we cannot get to a doctor. Another person has specialized in home cleaning products and family health. One of our down line has specialized in immune system oils for serious health challenges like diabetes or thyroid problems. Once you have found your "NITCH" you will find studying the oils related to that area of interest much easier to learn about because of your interest in that area. You will also find it much easier to talk to others about the oils because it will just become a natural part of your conversations. Sharing the information you have is the key to building your business


Have you ever noticed that when you are looking for something then all of the sudden it just appears? And it sometimes keeps coming and coming. Have you ever wondered why that is. Well here is the reason. It is because when you get excited about something, or you are in desperate need of something you tend to mention it to others in every conversation you have. Why does that matter. It matters because of networking. Let’s say you are building a new deck on your house. You get to the point where you needed some more wood to finish a project but cannot afford to buy it right now. Because you are so excited about your project, you start talking about your project to every person you talked to. You bring up building a deck to your friend Jim and tell him you need more wood for the deck but can’t afford to get it right now. Jim smiles and says that his uncle has a pile of wood in his back yard that he had left over from building his deck and wanted to find someone to help him haul it away. Is that a coincidence that Jim told you about his uncle having wood. NO! It is networking. Jim would never have thought to tell you about his uncle having wood if you had not brought it up in the conversation. That is why you all the sudden you start finding spare wood everywhere. WHY? BECAUSE YOU KEEP TELLING PEOPLE YOU NEED IT SO THEY TELL YOU SOMEONE WHO HAS IT. That is the key to NETWORKING!!! That same principle applies to building your Young Living Oils business. If you learn to bring up using the oils in your conversations and especially if you have a specialty in the oils like Emergency Preparedness or oils for animals you will find that as you talk to someone and just share with them what you are doing, they will then tell you about their aunt or cousin or friend who has been looking for help with some particular issue they are having and think the oils might be just what they need. That is what NETWORKING is all about. …it is not SALES… it is NETWORKING or simply said, "SHARING" . Most people do not like to sell, especially cold calling, asking people if they are interested in what you have. But if you can learn to share by just bringing it up in your conversations, then by simply sharing what you are excited about you will find that SHARING is much easier than SELLING. It is also much more effective because it is not confrontational to the person listening. Being too confrontational is normally offensive to friends and family. If you are just sharing, if they are not interested they will just go on with the conversation and not feel like they have been hit upon. There is an old joke in the MLM business about not becoming a member of the “NFL Club” In this case “NFL” does not stand the National Football League, it stands for “NO FRIENDS LEFT”. I have a couple of friends like that. My heart sinks when I see their name on caller ID or see them coming down the hall. Why? Because I assume they have “ANOTHER GREAT LITTLE DEAL FOR ME”. So I avoid them. If you lean to share or network by just sharing your excitement or interest in something as a part of your normal conversation but not expect them to express interest back, you will not be in the NFL club.

10 Business Building Principles

There are a few things that are really important in building your Young Living Business.
  1. 1 - Print yourself some business cards. The cards need to have your picture on them, your contact information and your Young Living Member number. When you meet people who are interested in the oils you need to have a way to leave them your contact information.
  1. 2 - Get yourself a little notebook you can carry around with you to write down the names of people you meet so you can write down their contact information as well. (You may want to do that with a smart phone instead if you have one). That is one of the hardest lessons for people in this business to learn: GET THEIR NAME AND PHONE NUMBER! It is so much easier to just hand them your card and then ask them to call you. In most instances, unless they are extremely interested they will not remember to call you back. If you are going to be successful in this business, you need to learn how to get peoples contact information when you talk to them AND THEN YOU DO THE FOLLOW UP GETTING BACK TO THEM. If you wait for them to call, you will in most cases be disappointed. This is a business of follow up. Once you have talked to someone and they express interest, when you get home, send them something in the mail about Young Living. Then after a couple of days call them on the phone and FOLLOW UP. FOLLOW UP. FOLLOW UP. Following up will be one of the keys to your success.
  1. 3 - Get some of the Young Living literature that you can give carry with you and give out you when you talk to people. Carry that literature with you everywhere you go. (You pick which handouts you like best). It needs to be a small flyer that tells a little about the company and the oils. But most of all has your name and contact information on the back. Young Living has lots of them available.
  1. 4 - Don't be afraid to talk to people about what you are doing. That is not selling. It is just sharing. You meet people everywhere you go. You never know when you are talking to your next business builder. If you read the stories of people who are in Young Living as Diamonds you will see that a lot of them were just working in a job like being store clerks or neighbors of someone or a receptionist. Some of the best sales people in the world have not been found yet and you may be talking to one of them without knowing it. Bring up your Young Living business in your conversation and don't be afraid to ask them if they are interested in being self-employed or having a second income. If they are not interested then move on. BUT DON'T LET THEM CROSS YOUR PATH WITHOUT AT LEAST SHARING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
  1. 5 - One of the most successful tools we have in this business is having small meetings in someone’s home. It has been shown that the meetings are more successful if there is less than 5 people there at one time so you can pay special attention to each of them. We have found giving a FOOTSIE TOOTSIE PARTY is our most successful way of giving a meeting. If you don't know what that is, see the instructions on how to do it below. (If you don't know what a Footsie Tootsie Party is, see section #2).
  1. 6 - Preparation is the key to eliminating fear. Many people when they join Young Living are afraid to talk to any one because they DON'T THINK THEY KNOW ANYTHING.  That is an easy problem to solve.  Preparation comes by listening to the videos Young Living has prepared, reading books and handouts about essential oils, looking up subjects about essential oils on GOOGLE, talking to others in Young Living about their experiences in Young Living, and holding meetings in your home where people ask you questions (that by the way is the best way you can possibly learn because you then look up the answer and learn yourself as well as teaching them).  If you are not reading a book at least once a month (any book.. some book… just a book) you are falling behind in your learning.  Most people never read another book after they leave school.  Don’t be one of those people.  One of the most important things I learned in college was “I LEARNED HOW TO KEEP ON LEARNING”.  Margaret Mead said that we all have to get a new college education every 4 years.  I have found that to be true of my life.  Have you realized yet that avid readers are the ones who are the most successful in life?  If you don’t have the reading habit THEN START NOW AND GET IT… GET IT? You will never be afraid to talk to someone about the oils if you become an expert in them.  THAT IS RIGHT… BECOME AND EXPERT IN ESSENTIAL OILS….  Then you will be successful in building your Young Living business beyond your fondest dreams. Why?  Because you will talk about the oils where ever you go and because you will do that, your Young Living team will grow and grow and grow.
  1. 7 - Once you have found someone who is interested and has signed up with you as a member, then support them.  Call them and talk to them at least once a week.  If they live close enough to you, help them have meetings in their home.  If you come and do the talking for them at first, they will be a lot more willing to hold meetings in their home.  Share information with them.  Help them learn about the oils.  It is an age old fact that you learn most by teaching.  As you teach your Young Living team members, you will learn more from the teaching than they will learn.
  1. 8 - Get into social media.  Anyone can start a web page or Facebook page. Social Media has become the main way people are communicating now days (even more than email or web pages).  You need to have a place to send people to get more information.  You can easy get a web page or Facebook page through young Living.  We actually have two web pages. One is directly from Young Living (www.youngliving.org/cordellvail) and the other one we pay YLDist.com to maintain for us (www.younglivingoils.com).  We also have two Facebook pages just for Young Living. One we maintain and a second one we pay Social5.com to maintain for us.

     This may be a new learning process for you if you have not been into social media before.  If you are going to be successful in this business you need to keep up with the times and the technology. Don't be afraid to do a little studing and learning about new things.  Your time will more than be paid back with success and financial security.  Here are some examples of web pages and Facebook pages we have created for you to look at.

    Young Living Facebook page by Cordell Vail
    Our Young Living Web Page hosted by YLDIS.com
  2. 9 - Get over your fear of talking to people. That is a must. This business is a social business. You are going to build a Young Living Oils Team. You will need to talk to people everywhere you go to find them and once they have joined your team you will need to talk to them continually to keep them interested and working as team members. They are going to depend on you to be their leader. You need to be knowledgeable about the oils and willing to help them build their business. That is going to take constant contact. The more involved you are with your team the more it will grow. You will know you are being successful when the members of your Young Living team become some of your best friends, almost like a part of your family.
  1. 10 - Have a plan then work your plan. You need to set and achieve goals.  Don’t be one of the people who never set goals.  It is true if you never set a goal you always achieve it but that is not a contributing factor in success.   If you need help with learning how to set and achieve goals, read my book on Goal Achieving. (To get a copy see BOOKS TO READ below).  Setting and achieving goals will be one of the main keys to your success.  If you have no plan you will have no success.  As a part of your plan associate with other Young Living Distributors who are successful.  That can most easily be accomplished by attending Young Living Convention every year in Salt Lake.  Yes that will cost you a little bit of money but it will also pay back big time.
  1. Here is another newsletter where I outlined some of those same principles (except there are 40 of them):
    40 Business Building Principles by Cordell Vail



Click on these email letter links to see some example email letters that we use to help build our YL Team:

This is an email we send out to the people who we enrolled and sponsored ourself to welcome them to our Young Living Team.
Personal welcome letter from you to someone you signed up yourself

We would recommend that you keep track of all the new people who join your Young Living team at least down 5 levels (that is how far down you get paid for). Here is an example of an email we send to people who have joined our YL Team under one of our Young Living Team members. Notice in the letter we are careful to ask them to contact the team member who signed them up with their questions not us.
Upline welcome letter from you to someone whom one your team members under you signed up

If one of your YL Team members does not buy something for 12 months, they are inactivated and drop off your down line reports. Young Living has created a report in the Virtual Office that gives you a list of all the people who are going to go inactive in the next month. We try to print that report out 3 or 4 days before the end of the month and send them this email:
About to go inactive letter

If someone has been inactive and wants to start over, all they have to do is call the company and order a $50 order or more under their old number. That automatically reactivates them. You only have to purchase at least $50 a year to stay active. If you find someone who has been inactivated, if they did not like the Young Living team they were on, you can resign them up under you by just having them call the company and telling them they want you to be their sponsor now (you will be the new enroller because they were already enrolled before). When we get someone to reactiveate, this is a example of an email we send to them:
Weclome Back Reactivation Letter

You will want to modify these letters to meet your own Young Living Team needs.


If you want to give prospective members a little sample of the oils but do not want to give them a whole bottle here is the solution. http://www.abundanthealth4u.com has developed sample cards that are very reasonably priced.

Instructions on how to do Chris Anderson's Footsie Tootsie Party:

Chris Our Leader
These downloadable documents are instructions to teach you how to do it, NOT A HANDOUT to give out. They are intended as training material for you to help you learn how to do a Footsie Tootsie Party. However, at the very end of the instructions are example copies of handouts you can give to your guests as well as example invitations. These instructions were created for use only for our downline Young Living team members .

Chris Anderson is the one who created this program. This has been our most successful way to introduce oils to a new prospective team members and customers. Her presentations are based on improving and maintaining your health. Some of our team members have used the concept but changed the presentation part of the program to fit their own style. For example Cordell has a much different approach. His opening presentation is based on emergency preparedness and the use of essential oils as an alternative medicine in a disaster when there are no doctors. Several of our other team members have developed their own way of presenting the Footsie Tootsie Party as well. The McClendons in Oklahoma add emphasis on using essential oils for animals. Sometimes you may use different oils in the presentation, depending on who the guests are and what their interests are or what level of knowledge they have about essential oils. Even though we may have different approaches in the presentation part of the Footsie Tootsie Party, the actual foot message part of the technique will normally be the same. We encourage you to look at these instructions as a guide and then make the presentation fit your style. We can tell you it is the best way we know to introduce people to the oils because it allows them to experience essential oils rather than just hearing about them.

Here are our instructions for our downline team members. Please do not take Chris' name off from the handout if you decide to share it with your own Y L team members.

(NOTE: We are constantly working on these instructions to make them more useful to you. Therefore I have put version numbers on them so you can tell if I have updated them since you last looked at them.)

 My Turn To Win: The Secret Of Excellence By Cordell & Janice Vail
This is the Work Book for my GOAL ACHIEVING seminars. Hopefully reading it and following the suggestions will help you be more successful, easier and more quickly.

Articles and Handouts:

Handouts to use in your meetings.
Originally we had several hundred handouts here on this web page. However the FDA asked us to make them all compliant (see section #4 for FDA rules). Therefore we removed them all. We used to send our handouts on a CD as WORD documents but some team members with Apple computers could not open them so we decided instead to put them back on this web page as PDF files so everyone can see them. (See section # 8 for the handouts). You can also go to web pages of other Young Living Team Members like Nan Martin's web page. She has 100's of handouts on almost every oil Young Living has. That web page is also a good place to go just to study and learn about essential oils and their use. She has one of the best Young Living Oils web page around. IT IS SIMPLY AMAZING!!! You can learn a lot from her.


Gary Young's Blog

One of the most important places you can go to learn about the science of essential oils is Gary Young's blog. You can even post questions there and get answers. You will want to get familiar with his blog as a part of your learning process. You will find it at: www.dgaryyoung.com/blog

Down Line Business Building Concepts That Work

This is attached document is a list of things that members of our down line have tried that have been successful in helping them sign people up. When you are building your business you need to keep track of what works. What you tried may seem like a good idea but if you do not find any new people from doing it, then you need to move on. Don't mistake ACTIVITY for ACCOMPLISHMENT.

Young Living Web Page

It is really important that you start going to the Young Living web page and use it as a resource. There is so much information there it would take you weeks to just look at it all one time. It is especially important to become familiar with the VIRTUAL OFFICE. That will help you manage your Young Living business. If you need help learning how to navigate through the VIRTUAL OFFICE please let us know and we will help you.

Get to know the Young Living Essential Rewards Program

Understanding the Essential Rewards Program

When you sign up a new team member, it is really important to help them understand the advantages of the Essential Rewards program. Team members who are willing to join the Essential Rewards program normally will be the ones that you know are going to help you build your business. Participation requires enrollment in a regular monthly order worth at least 50 PV. If they don't want to start out on Essential Rewards at first, be sure to remind them later when they are purchasing oils every month any way. They just as well be getting the discount.

How do I Earn Essential Rewards Points?

For each Essential Rewards order you place, you will receive a certain percentage of your order back as points. That percentage will gradually grow until your 13th consecutive month when you will earn a full 20 percent back. After 25 months on the program you can be earning 25% back in points you can use to purchase other products. That is in addition to the distributor discount you are already receiving.
1–3 months: 10 percent of each Essential Rewards order
4–24 months: 20 percent of each Essential Rewards order
25+ months: 25 percent of each Essential Rewards order
NOTE: You have to stay on the Essential Rewards program every month to qualify. If you miss a month you have to start over.


How do you use the Essential Rewards points?

These Essential Rewards points can be used like cash toward purchasing your favorite full-PV products. Keep in mind that you do not earn additional Essential Rewards points for products that were purchased with your points, and your points expire on a rolling 12-month basis.

Young Living Essential Rewards Web Pages.

Here are some YL web pages that will help you learn about the new Essential Rewards program:
Young Living's Essential Rewards Program
Young Living Essential Rewards FAQ

NOTE: Young Living has an additional bonus program for those in the Essential Rewards Program. Every month you will receive some really valuable gifts when your PV order is $200 or more and even more valuable gifts when it is $300 or more. (See the YL web page for the current free gifts being offered. It changes every month. You will find it in the MEMBER SERVICES AREA.)

*NOTE: These statements in the FDA compliance section have actually been approved by the FDA

One of the most important things you can learn in this business is to NOT DIAGNOSE OR PRESCRIBE. We are not doctors or medical practitioners. If you tell people which oils to use to cure some ailment, you could lose your distributorship. So all the documents we create have to be complaint with FDA rules. Also when you talk to other people you need to be sure that you only say things to them that are compliant with FDA rules. Here are some documents that should help you learn what you need to know about FDA compliance as you build your Young Living Team:

Please be very careful what you are telling people. An even more important point, if you have new members of your team there listening at a meeting and you think it won't hurt to just tell the guests a few things this time because it is not a public meeting, those new members will take license from that and may very well then later in a more public meeting repeat what you said. The Young Living SHARING YOUNG LIVING THE RIGHT WAY compliance handout says:

"No matter how much success you feel you’ve had with a Young Living product in helping your family fight disease, avoid claiming as much when you are sharing our products. Personal experiences do not replace scientific studies; and when you share your personal experiences in a business-building setting, no matter how remarkable, they may count as a disease claim."

That means that if you got stung by a bee and put purification oil on the sting, you cannot tell people that the sting did not swell up and was gone then next day!

Here are some examples of how you can say something that is compliant (I took these comments from people who posted on Gary Young's Blog):


"I am layering Lavender, Frankincense and Copaiba on the bottom of both feet to support my overall wellness".
"I love to diffuse Lavender in my daughter’s room at night. It helps create a calming atmosphere for us both at bed time!"

I am getting a lot of questions about how to simplify the compensation plan so you can explain it in a very simple brief manner to your guests. I am working on a few handouts to do that (check back here later to see them). You can also find a lot of information about that on the Young Living Web page:

At the top of the main www.youngliving.c web page, select MEMBER BENEFITS then select COMPENSATION PLAN
That will take you to:

Here is a link to an excelent video on the YL compensation plan to help you understand the basic terms like levels, legs, enroller, member, etc:
YL Compensation Plan Terminology

If you truly want to fully understand the totality of the compensation plan then there is a MUST HAVE little book you should buy. It is called Driven for Success: Road Map To The Comp Plan by Jake Dempsey (a Crown Diamond in Young Living).

Driven For Success Book

He also has a little app for your phone that completely handles the compensation plan for you. It projects what your check is going to be as well as telling you exactly how the money was figured out by Young Living to make up that check. That can be a little complicated with all the bonus options there are. It costs $7 a month and I could not live without it. You can get that APP at:


The best place to learn about the new 2016 Young Living Essential Rewards Program is to go to the company web page and in the Virtual Office and click on ESSENTIAL REWARDS. Here is a summary of the points Program:

You will receive points based on a percentage of your PV for each Essential Rewards order. The percentage you receive depends on how many months you have consecutively placed a minimum $50 Essential Rewards order.

1–3 months: 10 percent of each Essential Rewards order

4–24 months: 20 percent of each Essential Rewards order

25+ months: 25 percent of each Essential Rewards order

Learning about the quality of oils

One of the things you will find out right away is that we are not the only ones in the Essential Oils business. There are several other companies marketing similar products and now even some of the brick and mortar stores like Walmart and Fred Meyer are selling them. It is really important that you understand the significance of quality when comparing our products to other companies or other essential oil brands. The key here is to know that what you pay for is what you get. Here is a little excerpt from the Life Science Desk Reference (chapter 6) that will be the beginning of your study of essential oil quality (and yes this is going to take some study to become knowledgeable as to why Young Living is the best of the best in the Essential Oils business.

Section #8

Because of the new FDA compliance rulings we have been asked to follow by Gary Young, we have removed all of our research papers if they have testimonials in them. We had over 100 of them. We removed them all for now to can make sure the wording is totally FDA compliant in each of them. We are still working on this section. I will try to put them back in here one at a time as I get them checked. Please come back later and hopefully they will see them all appear here again.....

My Indirect Selling Approach

One of the things that has helped me meet new people more than anything else is emergency preparedness. Everyone seems to be interested in it. I just do not like to approach people with a hard sell about my Young Living business. That puts you in the NFL (No Friends Left) club. So I try to use other ways to talk to people to see if they would be interested without confronting them directly. By talking to them about Emergency Preparedness is one of the ways I have found that I can easily do that. In the conversation I bring up the fact that where I live they have told us that if there is a major earthquake we should not expect to see a fireman, policeman, ambulance or medevac helicopter for at least 5 weeks, even if your arm is cut off. That is because we live in a very rural area and they will pull all the first responders into the larger cities where most of the people live. Then I tell them some of the oils I have stored in my emergency supply like Lavender for burns and Thieves, Purification and Immupower for infections. I also mention R.C. and Myrtle for respiratory problems. That normally tells me right away if they are interested in knowing more about the oils. If not I just move on in the conversation and hopefully they do not feel like they got "HIT ON" by a salesperson.

*An example of a presentation would be like this:
"Hi my name is Lisa Chidester, and I represent Young Living Oils. These beautiful oils are the vital fluids of plants that are their life blood. Essential oils contain the life force, intelligence, and vibrational energy that gives healing to people. They can be inhaled, applied to the body, and taken internally to be used for our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.

I have been using Young Living Essential Oils for 20 years and cannot imagine life without them. I use them to support my family when we have colds, flu, allergies, infections. These oils helped my youngest daughter overcome hypotonia, and they helped support my mother when she was battling cancer. We have a diffuser to help scent and disinfect the air in our home. I especially enjoy using them to give foot and back massages while we watch a movie.

Tomorrow afternoon, I will be hosting an Essential Oils class in my home at 1 on April 15. I would love the opportunity to share with anyone who would like to learn about them. I have over 80 oils to smell and experience. I also have a variety of Young Living oils for sale today. Everyone will go home with 2 Ningxia Red samples and a dram of oil to take home in their gift bag. Also included is a flyer about tomorrows class and my contact information if they would like to know more. "
