Work With Me

Laura Nielsen doTerra - Carrotgal gardening - work with me

Choosing to build a doTERRA business has truly changed my life.  It has lead me to some of the most incredible friends/relationships, has allowed me to make a difference in other people’s lives, and has helped me earn money while staying home with my kids. 

Every year, I coach a handful of people who also want to start a doTERRA business. 

However, because my time is very limited, I am extremely selective with who I pick, and will only work with people who are highly committed to this opportunity and are willing to do the work.

If you would like to apply for the opportunity to coach with me to build your own business, please read through the following, then fill out the application:

Who this opportunity is for:

  • People with a NO EXCUSES mentality
  • People who can continue to devote time to a business even when life throws them curve balls
  • People who are willing to work hard for a period of time to create long-term results 
  • People who can consistently commit 10-20 hours per week to a new business
  • People who are willing to get out of their comfort zone
  • People who can invest in a starter kit and place a continuing order each month
  • People who want to be part of a growing movement and make a positive difference in the world

Who this opportunity is NOT for:

  • People wanting a “get rich quick” scheme
  • People who are unwilling to leave their house or talk to people
  • People don’t like to push themselves outside of their comfort zone
  • People who aren’t willing to invest in a starter kit and place a monthly order
  • People who jump from one opportunity to another
  • People who are already on another doTERRA team


Great question!  The cost of starting a doTERRA business, when compared to starting a traditional brick-and-mortar business, is very small.  Your initial costs are your starter kit and your ongoing monthly order.  For people who want my personal mentoring, I require them to start with at least a $550 kit and place a 150 PV order each month.  You, of course, can start with less than this, but will not be mentored by me.  

It’s hard to say because it is different for everyone and it depends on what your goal is and how much time you spend on it.  Over time, people can earn enough to supplement their income or even to replace their income.

Here are some rough averages to help you get a feel for the income potential with doTERRA: 

If you spend 3-5 hours per week and enroll a few people per month, you can earn $304-742 per month in 6 months or so.

If you spend 10-15 hours per week and enroll 4+ customers and 1 builder per month, you can earn $742-4,781 per month in 9-12 months or so.

If you spend 15-30 hours per week and enroll 8+ customers and 2 builder per month, you can earn $4,781-16,733 per month in 1-3 years or so.

We will go over more details about your income goals on the phone.  

How fast do you want to build? The great news is that you get to pick your pace, although I will say that it is easier to build fast than it is to build slow. Most of my builders spend 15-25 hours per week but you can spend more or less than this. This is definitely something we can discuss more over the phone.

The initial cost is simply your starter kit (I require my personal mentoring builders to purchase a $550 kit).  After that, you will need to commit to ordering 150PV (roughly $150) per month in order to qualify for earning commission. 

Other than that, there are no quotas, no sales minimums, and you do NOT need to carry any inventory. All orders are shipped directly from doTERRA.  Compared to the cost of a brick-and-mortar business, these costs are very minimal.  This allows this business to be within anyone’s reach!

NO! You will need to stay where you are. In order to preserve the high-integrity culture of doTERRA, I do not participate in cross-recruiting or coach people how to leave their existing teams. If you need support, you should be able to find it by reaching out to an upline higher in your particular structure. Contact them to get the help you need. 


If this sounds like something that is a good fit for you, please fill out the application below.  
I will contact you to set up a time to talk on the phone to discuss things further.
