Oily Economics: StartUp Economy

Why a Premium Starter Kit?
Young Living has put together four fantastic Premium Starter Kits that help new users to accomplish their immediate wellness goals. These kits are bundled so that you get a variety of products to meet your needs at a steeply discounted price. New members can choose from the Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit, the Thieves Premium Starter Kit, the Ningxia Red Premium Starter Kit, or the CBD Premium Starter Kit.
Can’t decide or want to try multiple product lines? No problem: We have three solutions for you:
- Purchase one of those kits, and add a second product line as an “Essential Rewards Kit” on your initial order, and get a whole home-switch-up delivered right to your doorstep.
- Purchase a Premium Starter Kit and set up your second choice to be delivered to your door next month as an Essential Rewards order!
- Purchase a Premium Starter Kit and set up an Essential Rewards order with individual products of your choosing, to be delivered either with your starter kit or the following month.
The huge benefit to your PSK is that your free lifetime membership is included in the cost.
Preferred Customers enjoy all the same perks of a wholesale distributor member – 24% discount on all product purchases, and LOADS of opportunity for free products and shopping sprees! Even better news – if an independent distributorship doesn’t appeal to you, you can enjoy those perks anyway, without being required to place large monthly or quarterly orders to meet quotas. A 50pv order keeps your account active for 12 consecutive calendar months from the order date. So, skip the retail account – those jokers pay full price on all the things! – and go straight for the wholesale account!
Saving and Fundraising
The cost of a starter kit may be intimidating to some, even when compared with the actual retail value. A lot of times, the family budget really is that tight. Sometimes, to see our way around this challenge, we have to overcome what’s called the poverty mindset. A poverty mindset is a pattern of thinking that an item of value or great importance is permanently out of reach, and that we must settle for less than what we need to live well.
I have found that those who truly understand the impact that essential oils and clean products can have on their families’ health, are the ones who are really determined to fund their kit any way they can. Whether that be holding a garage sale, listing a few items for sale on an online marketplace, packing a lunch to work for a couple of weeks instead of eating out, or skipping the coffeeshop a few times and saving the cash…where there’s a will, there’s a way!
I would encourage you not to get distracted by purchasing lesser or inferior brands, either from online or storefront retailers. The oils you’ll find in stores are not therapeutic grade and the companies do not hold themselves to the Seed to Seal standards of Young Living, meaning that you will not achieve your desired results by using a cheaper, synthetic-filled brand to get you started right away. Every dollar you spend on an inferior brand is money down the drain – and not only are you out money, but you’ll still be looking for something else to fulfill your hope for something that works. Save those pennies, and keep your eye on the prize: a Young Living Premium Starter Kit!
Classes and Referrals
If the cost of a Premium Starter Kit is concerning to you, keep in mind that sharing Young Living with your friends provides opportunity to earn your starter kit cost back! Distributors are paid $50 for every Premium Starter Kit sold. Talk to the person who introduced you to Young Living, and ask her to teach a class for your friends in your home or a favorite gathering place, OR find a copy of a class script (I recommend “Gameplan” by Sarah Harnisch!) and share your oils with those friends yourself! Find four people who want to upgrade their lives, help them get a kit, and you’ve just earned back your investment, plus some.
