My Journey to Silver.

Billie CornellBlog

Welcome to my blog.

I’m Billie Cornell and if you’ve come across this blog and not sure how you got here, Yay! Welcome! I’m glad you are here. If you are here on purpose and not sure what I’m going to talk about today, you are in good company. I’ve had such a block about what to put in my weekly blog and I was determined that once I started one, I would be consistent. OK, it’s hard to be consistent when you are going back and forth with what to talk about this week. Will they like it? Will anyone read it? Should I just talk about the oils? What about the business? That may scare some people away.

I’m such a perfectionist!

First of all, I’ll tell you what essential oils I am using today. Envision Essential Oil Blend, Vetiver Essential Oil (this was quite by accident because I thought it was the bottle of Brain Power but I do love Vetiver!) and Brain Power Essential Oil Blend. These should help me focus on my task today.

If you haven’t heard, last month(April 2018) I made it to Silver Rank within Young Living, something I’ve been aiming at for a little over 2 years. Why did it take me so long? Because I didn’t believe in me. I didn’t have faith that I was ready for it. I was listening to the wrong people and doing things instead of believing things. Did you hear that? I was DOING things instead of Believing things. I started believing what the I AM inside of me was telling me. I was pushed right until the last day of the month. I had to use my faith I God(I AM) right until 3 PM on Monday, April 30, 2018.

Why should this interest you? Maybe you have been here with one or more network marketing companies and it didn’t go well. Honestly, I had never been a part of a Network Marketing or Direct Sales company before. I started with the company I was with as a user/customer, not for the business. Like 95% of the people that use essential oils. I love the product. I wanted to know more. I was Never going to do this as a business and I don’t do home parties! Ever! Then I started telling my friends about these essential oils that I found and they wanted them too. I had gotten a starter kit so that’s what I told them to do. I somehow knew that they needed to use my member number, not sure how, but they enrolled or purchased under my member number so it was good. I got a check. Yeah! More oils.

I was tired of what I did for a living and ready to find a new challenge. I had my own business as a programmer and website designer for over 20 years. A lot of alone time with just me and my computer. Everything was changing and I was tired of always trying to keep up and I was also a bit lonely at times. I did like that I could work from home and be there for my kids. Hummm, what could I do, that didn’t cost a lot of money to start up, would be fun, I could work my own hours, be there for my kids and I liked doing it? Oh, and I needed to make some money. That’s when I started looking into doing a Network Marketing business. But I wouldn’t call it that. I was “Sharing” what I was learning. Network marketing was scary and a dirty word. My parents tried that when I was a kid with another big company. I thought I would give it a go and see where it took me. I  officially launched my YL business in October 2015 after having an awful September and summer. I think I had even dropped from Senior Star to Star that month. I called my leader and had told her that I was ready to give up even though I really wasn’t doing the business.

I don’t know why but I think that frustration lead me to see what I could really do. I kept hosting classes in October through February and I made it to Executive in February of 2016. Then fell back to Senior Star in March. Picked it back up again in April and then I got stuck. Stuck because I kept trying this and trying that. I was Doing everything I found but I was stuck in the Executive muck. I read books, I listened to podcasts, I did programs, I spent money and I was still stuck. Until, I got fed up and posted a plea for help on one of my leaders Facebook groups. My Crown Diamond Leader, Dr Sharnael, answered. Conversation started. I opened my self up and looked inside of me, instead of outside at what I was doing. I started an intense program with her the first of April 2018 for 17 days with a group of amazing ladies. All through a Facebook group. I thought it would be about business, in some ways it was, but in more ways it was about what I believed. We read amazing books and worked on mapping out our intentions. I started saying what I am instead of saying how I couldn’t get there. I started believing in the I AM inside of me.

Affirmations made all the difference in the world. Things kept being thrown at me that normally would have made me become negative and give up. I just kept saying and believing that it was already done. I had already achieved the Rank of Silver. There was no questions. At about 3 PM central time on April 30, 2018 it happened. Yes, I was excited. I knew in my heart that I was already there. I believed it when my coach, Carrie, called me and said I made it. Just like I believe I will achieve the next rank and the next rank and the next rank. It’s up to me to believe.

Today I want to share with you what type of people, especially women, that I am looking for in becoming a member and partner with me in this business.

  1. Independent – once given an idea or instruction you can take it and run.
  2. Likable – people do have to like you if you are doing this type of business.
  3. Willing to grow yourself personally as well as professionally.
  4. Accountable – You must be able to set goals and be accountable to the goals you’ve set.
  5. Organized / Productive
  6. Likes and enjoys being a part of a team. You must be able to encourage others.
  7. Honest – I have to be able to trust you and you have to be able to trust me.
  8. Diligent – You must be persistent. The only loser is the one that gives up.
  9. Open minded to looking at things a different way.
  10. Health Conscious
  11. Believe in God and Jesus and be willing to stretch yourself farther in these beliefs.

Does this sound like you? Are we a match? These are the people I am looking for in joining me and my team. Take a look at the Young Living Income Disclosure Statement. It will show you what the potential is in dollars. What I think is more important is what it doesn’t show you. How you can personally grow yourself in this business. I know of no other place that has this. I would have never found what I was missing anywhere else.

How can you become a part of my team? First get your Young Living Premium Starter Kit by either clicking on the link or the Become a Member button. Then, we can talk about what you need to get started in believing what you can do and what is possible. If you are already a Young Living member, contact your leader. You can find it in your Account information. There are so many amazing leaders in Young Living you will find your match.

That’s it for today. What will I share next? I’m sure it will be something amazing!
