Balancing Work and Family

This year has been a new way of life for me, as I am stepping into the role of more travel for my business, and with that new territory comes a new learning curve. How can I balance my work and my family, and also feel great about the decisions I'm making involving everything? Let's chat about it and I'll share with you what I have been doing.

You may have read that my husband and I decided to end our homeschooling journey (for now?) as Daen had expressed an interest in going to school. I made a promise to him and to myself that should this ever happen I would honor it, and find a school that would support him. Fortunately I found an incredible charter academy with the help of my friends from Daen's baseball team. I can't even begin to tell you what this has done for my relationship with my son and my business. I now have released the mommy guilt that came with me working while he is home with me, and have more focused time with both him and my business. I also now have more balanced time with my husband, and we have the opportunity to go out on day dates! However, with all the new scheduling that comes into place with school and my husband's physical therapy schedule, I knew I needed to change what I was doing and be more efficient with my time. 

So what did I do? In addition to using copious amounts of Balance I have been using Tony Robbins' Time of Your Life RPM Planner and Training and it has been absolutely life changing for me! I find myself having even more time than ever by scheduling things in a particular way. More often than not, we end up writing a daunting to-do list that is miles long with no real idea of what it is that we actually want. Then we get discouraged, stressed out and frazzled because we have no idea what we are doing... we only know that we ARE doing. What I love so much about this program is that it teaches you a new way of thinking, which of gets you different results! When you plan your day/week/month/year/life out with your ultimate outcomes in mind, the reasons why you want those outcomes, and actionable steps to reach those outcomes... you experience a whole new layer of life and the newfound balance you have been craving.

Once you have successfully mastered your time you will understand the greatness you are truly capable of achieving. Most time and life planning products focus on activity and what you need to do. I can totally attest to this as I am an avid planner lover, but have always found that what I was doing would lead me to overwhelm at some point. The RPM system focuses first on the results and outcomes you want, then connects you to why it’s important to achieve your outcomes. When the inevitable challenges show up, RPM gives you the drive to follow through and achieve with the actions you need to take. I also loved the 10 day audio system, that you can listen to while you're out running errands, or doing things around the home, so you aren't taking out any extra time in your day. 

After finishing the program, and using the RPM Planner regularly, I find myself in a beautiful state of balance in my work life, family life, and especially in my self care. I can't imagine moving forward without this new way of thinking, managing my time, and scheduling the important things. If you find yourself "not having the time" or "not having enough time" to do and experience the things you want to in life, then I 100% recommend grabbing the Tony Robbins' Time of Your Life RPM Planner and Training and empowering yourself! 

I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

What will you take the leap on?

I wanted to stop in today to ask you a serious question. When was the last time you took the leap and did the scary thing? The thing that you really wanted to do but it shook you to your core...

The last few weeks have been ALL about doing the scary things for me... and taking even more action afterwards! Here are just a few of the things I have done recently that have really caused me to stretch, change, and grow.

  • Hired myself a NEW coach
  • Sent my baby to Charter school
  • FINALLY launched my coaching services
  • Opened up my VIP tribes to new members
  • ASKING for what I want

For years I have been wanting to launch my coaching services, and open up all of my trainings to oilers and biz babes outside of my direct community... and I FINALLY TOOK ACTION to do this! Was it terrifying? Yes! Did it feel amazing afterwards? Yes! And it still feels amazing!

Sometimes we put ourselves very last on our list, and forget to think about what we need to grow. We forget about what we need to help us stretch. We forget that we want to change. What is it that you need help focusing on? What do you WANT today? How can I help YOU? How can I SERVE you?

and most importantly...

What do you NEED?

I really truly want to know. Really! Reply back and share! I also hope today you do something that scares you! If you are ready to take massive action and you want me to coach you... let’s do it! If you don't have those oils you have been eyeing for years... let's do it! If you're not yet a member of my essential oil community... let's do it!

  • Go here to get started with your oils
  • decide what kind of membership you’d like to have
  • keep wholesale customer highlighted and click continue OR Select Wellness Advocate if you would like to create an income
  • fill out your information
  • double check that my name (Dalea Faulkner), photo, and ID number is there 403946

As always, if you have any questions along the way let me know. I am here for YOU!

Take care, and keep oiling!

A message from your Coach

“We do not attract what we want; we attract what we are.“ -Dr. Wayne Dyer Who are you right now? Who do you want to be? What would life look like if you were living it at your full potential, and living in the most extraordinary way? What beautiful things would your create? Which people would you serve?

How can you bring more empowered moments into the life you’re living right now? Over 6 years ago, I was struggling so deeply with depression, anxiety, and plagued with negativity. I hated myself so much, and felt like I had tried everything to get myself to a better headspace. Not an easy feat as a new mother. For half my pregnancy and half of the first year of Daen’s life, I had to navigate these emotions and struggles with my husband in Afghanistan. I knew that I needed to make a change because what I was doing wasn’t working.

Essential oils have played a massive part in my overall health and wellness, mental, spiritual, and emotional transformation, and have lead me to so many beautiful tools in personal development. The woman I am today was molded. I worked so hard to become this version of myself because I knew there was so much more to life than what I was allowing myself to experience.

I want this for you, and I want to celebrate your wins, no matter how big or small you think they are. I want to celebrate your transformations, even when you’re in the thick of it and can’t see how far you’ve come. I want to be there for you every step of the way, so that you don’t ever have to feel alone on your journey.

xoxo

Your Coach, Dalea

Biz ResOILutions

Holy moly! Another new year is here, and that means it's another chance to rock your Oil Biz goals, and help change the world! (Can you tell I'm excited?!) Let's dig deep and check out 5 ways we can improve our biz in 2018 and crush those goals!

Use your Oils!

  • I feel like we have talked about this before... but it's pretty obvious (and simple!) to use the oils to keep your self care in check and your body in tip top shape, so that you can spend the time you need to focus on your business.

Get in the trenches!

  • One of the best ways to understand the things your leaders and teams are struggling with, is getting out there and experiencing it for yourself! Observe them teaching a workshop or one on one. Get in there and work on finding solutions together!

Set your Intentions!

  • Is this the year that you want to feel Empowered? Inspired? Guided? Balanced? Find out what emotion you most want to feel throughout the year, and let this be your North Star in relation to your goals. Having the ability to tap into your intentions by feeling that emotion whenever you choose, is going to help keep you on track with your goals.

Set your Goals!

  • Are you planning to hit Diamond this year? What will that take? How much volume will you need? How many people is that? How many classes or one on ones will you do? What about your team? Lay out a plan for yourself so that you can see which steps are going to make your goal a reality. While you are working those steps... feel those emotions from your Intentions!

Keep it Going!

  • It is so easy to get discouraged and lose momentum after the first few months of the year. Find an inspirational speaker, or mentor that lights a fire in you that will help to keep your momentum going. PodCasts, YouTube, and even Facebook Live videos are a wonderful way to stay inspired and keep that energy high vibe!

Most of all, have fun with your business. You are making waves in this world for positive change on a daily basis. Have fun being a miracle worker and let me know what you are most excited to do this year!

Building during the Holidays

The Holiday Season is here, but that is no reason to let your essential oil business, and community fall to the wayside! Building your business during the Holidays can be fun, and far from being a chore. Let's talk about some fun ways for you to build your business during the holiday season!

Take advantage of the excitement of the holiday season and show your friends and family how doTERRA essential oils can add spice and joy to their life by hosting a Christmas-themed class! There are so many ways to do this and I will share a handful of them with you!

1. Show them Holiday blends to diffuse. 

  • 2 drops Wild Orange, 2 drops Cassia, 2 drops Siberian Fir
  • 3 drops Frankincense, 3 drops Myrrh, 3 drops Cardamom, 2 drops Siberian Fir
  • 4 drops Wintergreen and 2 drops Douglas Fir

Experiment and discover some favorites of your own! Diffusing is one of the simplest ways to let others experience the power of doTERRA. Whether you are putting together an event for your biz builders, you are teaching a class, or doing a make and take, putting together a diffuser blend is an awesome way to share!  2. Serve your guests spiced apple cider and add these essential oils to the cider of your choice:

  • 3 drops Wild Orange
  • 2 drops Cinnamon Bark or Cassia
  • 2 drops Ginger

3. Cook and bake with your essential oils together

4. Create a fun holiday craft like the one below: Stencil Holiday Jar:

  • Paint around a stencil of your favorite holiday image (e.g. a reindeer, Santa’s sleigh, a star, etc.) on a mason jar or any other type of glass jar.
  • For a more rustic look, scuff up the paint with sand paper.
  • Fill the jar with dried red berries and a tea light or any other holiday-like items.
  • Dress up the jar as you desire with ribbons, bells, etc.
  • Finally, add one or two drops of Holiday Joy or your favorite doTERRA holiday scent.

This is perfect for a Holiday make and take event! Get your friends together for a fun and laid back holiday gathering! Who doesn't enjoy crafting during the holidays? You can also share the event as a "last minute gift" idea, for those that still need some!

6. Host a Holiday and Essential Oils crafting event

  • Put together Felt garland diffusers! This is super inexpensive and can also be a fun, child friendly event!

7. Help friends and family create their doTERRA wishlists!

  • If your family does a gift exchange, this is the perfect opportunity to find out who has been dreaming of a wholesale account!
  • Letting your family know that Secret Santas can come to you to find out which oils are on people's wishlists is a fun way to get everyone oiling!

Realize that many people are busy during the holidays, but there are also MANY people that are looking for fun things to do as well! Look at this season as an opportunity to connect with and serve others in your community.

I am wishing you massive success this holiday season!
