Hi! My name is Paula Krueger and I’m going to share a little about myself, my family and my oily journey so far. I married my high school sweetheart, Charlie, and we’ve shared a wonderful life so far. We have 5 amazing children, which we homeschool. We live in the suburbs of Chicago with the kids, 3 cats, and a bunny. My husband is a project manager for an audio/visual company and I am a professional blogger at Frosted Fingers.
I started using oils back when our oldest, now 11, was a baby. I would use them to make wipe solution, added to cloth diaper laundry, and basically just trying to make things smell better. I never tried to use them for aromatherapy purposes.
A little over two years ago my friend, Sarah, came to town and had a Young Living Essential Oils class. It was one of the first classes she ever taught. I didn’t sign up that night but I went home with a bottle of Thieves Cleaner and fell in love. I think it only took me a day or so to sign up.
My journey with Young Living was slow for the first year. I didn’t use the oils a whole lot and then got pregnant and decided to be on the safe side with oils and didn’t use much but Thieves Cleaner and hand soaps during the pregnancy.
Back in September of 2015, little did I know, a rockstar was signed under me and suddenly I started seeing checks roll in because I consistently placed my orders for oils and cleaners. My attention was caught! I went to an Oil Ability Leader Retreat and learned a ton and left ready to rock the business. Life got in the way, though, and I didn’t work hard at it. Then I went to Grand Convention in June and was ready to go for real then.
I’ve been working hard. I ranked to Executive at the end of October. I’m so excited for the changes that Young Living is making for my family. I’m actually only about 1-2 months away from Silver and I can not wait! My goal is to make Gold by Grand Convention in 2017. My husband is going with me and I want us to cross the stage twice for ranking!
I hope by sharing some of what’s going on here with us you will decide to try this journey out with your family, whether it’s just trying the oils or going full blown on the business (you won’t regret it!) Thanks for joining me here on Oils For Seven. If you are ready to jump in, just let me know and I’ll walk you through. If you have some questions and want to get some oils on your body to try, I will help you out with that as well!
