Top 10 Books for Young Living Business Builders about Network Marketing

Time to rock your Young Living network marketing biz!

One of the top advice from Young Living Diamond Leaders is to read, and educate yourself as much as you can. I am a big believer in education, and I try to read articles about essential oils, wellness, toxic-free living and also about network marketing. I share some of these on the Enjoy Life Oils Facebook page on daily basis.

I also rounded up ten highly books that are highly recommended by Young Living business builders. One of my New Year's resolutions is to read more books, and I hope you will join me in the "reading club." Leave a comment if you know a great book that I didn't mention in this post!

25 To Life: Jailbreak Your 9-5 & Escape to Financial Freedom

by Adam Green

"Twenty-five to Life" is the terminology used to refer to prison sentences for criminals. Many governments believe the worst sentence for a criminal is to spend the rest of his or her life behind bars. However, many more people in the world are living out their own prison sentences, just not behind bars. They serve their sentences in cubicles, behind desks, and in the trenches of mediocrity, constantly grinding day in and day out, struggling to keep themselves afloat. These prisoners are not wearing black-and-white striped jumpsuits, but instead are adorned with suits, ties, smocks, and work uniforms. Ball and chains are replaced with mountains of debt we carry on our shoulders wherever we go, a heavy reminder of the reason we trade the best 40-plus years of our life: To make a living with the hopes of retiring and enjoying our "golden years." Today, at just 25 years old, I have created a new meaning for 25 to Life. Instead of a life sentence in the work force, I escaped. I challenged the system, the way things were "supposed to be," and in a short four to five years broke out from my personal life sentence as an employee. Now, 25 to Life is a life based on complete financial freedom at the age of 25, having my entire life ahead of me to live life to the fullest, while helping others escape their own life sentence. Believe me, if I can achieve this, you can as well. I encourage you to open your mind as you open this book. You just might open up a door to opportunity and change that will allow you to escape your 25 to Life.

The Greatest Networker in the World

by John Milton Fogg

"The paradigm of network marketing is so fundamentally different and distinct from all other paradigms of business, that it requires a pretty complete shift from the way we normally view business to appreciate and understand it."
The new paradigm is built around one’s habits of thought and discovering that the secrets to network marketing success are within oneself. The values of responsibility, team building, and caring for one’s downline play a much more important role than competitive promotion and advertising.
A critical skill for all marketers is the ability to teach people to teach others. Once one has mastered the new paradigm of multilevel marketing, he needs to not only show his downline how to master it, but also how to teach those techniques to others. This leads to greater leadership within the organization, more stability, improved productivity, and as a result, long-lasting success.

Why Join Essential Rewards?

Essential Rewards program explained

 Example of April 2015 Essential Rewards free products you will receive with a 190, 250 or 300PV order.

Example of April 2015 Essential Rewards free products you will receive with a 190, 250 or 300PV order.

One of the perks of being a Young Living wholesale member is being able to enroll for Essential Rewards program. You can earn points toward future product purchases with every Essential Rewards order, and each month Young Living gives additional free products for Essential Rewards orders over 190PV, 250PV and 300PV. Note: 190PV = around $190, and you will have to make a purchase of over 50PV each month to be able to be in the program.

You will start collecting rewards points from your first Essential Rewards order on, and you also qualify for free products immediately. I was able to get free products worth over $150 in just the first two months I was enrolled with Essential Rewards! The monthly ER freebie products can sometimes also be exclusive that are not even available for purchase, so it is exciting to get the freebies!

Essential Rewards program is a monthly ordering program, which can automatically ship you the same products each month, but I switch my order every month, so you can easily try different products each month. I highly recommend this so you can try as many different products as possible to find your favorites.

Even more reason to love ER program: as your months with Essential Rewards increase, so do your rewards!

Months on Essential Rewards Points Earned

  • Month 1–6 you get 10% in credit points
  • Month 7–12 you get 15% in credit points
  • Month 13+ you get 20% in credit points

The longer you are on Essential Rewards the greater the benefits to you. During months 1-6 it might not feel like a huge savings but once you get to month 7 and onward you will really notice a difference in the amount of product you get over time.

Let's say once you are in the 15% bracket and your monthly Essential Rewards order is always over 100PV (about $100 wholesale), it means you will get at least $250 worth of free product a year. But for example my orders have been around $300 / 300PV bracket so I have qualified for all of the free products AND gotten the rewards points of each $300+ order,  and the freebies just really started rolling on FAST!
