Starting a Business Core Values

Starting a Business Core Values

Now that you have decided to start a business the best place to start is setting yourself some goals.  Think about the amount of money you would like to make or the rank you would like to achieve, then set a time you think you can achieve that by.  I have a handy workbook to set goals, what is takes to achieve them so you hone in on what exactly you need to do to achieve them. Click here for the free workbook. 

Next I would like to get into the heart of your decision to ensure you get there.  Goals can set an expectation, and give you short term happiness when you achieve them. However focusing on your values along the way allows you to enjoy the whole process not just the result.

Doing things you don’t like just for survival won’t keep you there for very long. Doing things for status won’t last much longer, even freedom is superficial.  Freedom to do what -what will you do with your freedom this is your why.  (Just a tip it’s how you will help people and be a giver.)  Something you would get out of bed for even if you weren’t getting paid. This is your Purpose.

doterra Purpose Core Values (Personal WHY)

Once you find your passion, you put soul and passion into your business, things will be clearer, it will be easier to make decisions, set boundaries, and do hard things because you’ll know why you are doing them.  You will experience greater fulfillment when you live by your values.

So how do you figure out what these core values are?  For some people just sitting in a quiet place, with time to reflect, thinking of a time you experienced joy, and write things that come to mind.  For others looking at a blank piece of paper might make us draw-a-blank, so I suggest downloading a core values list. (There is a free download here)  Next, highlight some that are most important to you.  If you have more than 7-8, group them into categories, and see if one category is inclusive of others.  Narrow your list until is is 5-8.  Prioritize this list putting them in order,  most important first.  Define what each one means to you.

This may take some time to reflect on, so be sure to set a time in a month or so to review these, to see if you still see them the same way.

I have a free video training on this topic, and more in this series to follow, coming very soon.

    Wellness – Essential Oils for Cold or Flu

    Wellness – Essential Oils for Cold or Flu

    As Seasonal threats looms, and newest viruses, and versions of the flu keep changing, we need to find more effective ways of protecting ourselves and our families.

    As most Essential Oils are antibacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, and antiseptic they are my first go-to for keeping my family healthy through these times.   Washing hands often, and lots of other common sense ways of staying healthy are great, but sometimes you need a little more defense.

    In addition Essential oils can help to boost your immune system, helping your bodies natural defense on a cellular level.


    What Are the top products for Seasonal Wellness?

     

    On Guard

    As one of doTERRA’s best-selling blends, doTERRA On Guard protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested. doTERRA On Guard can be taken internally on a daily basis to maintain healthy immune function and support healthy cardiovascular function.

    On Guard comes in lots of formats such as Throat Drops, Beadlets, Hand Sanitising Mist (spray), Washing Liquid, Toothpaste, Foaming Handwash, mouthwash, and more.

    Oregano

    After On Guard with would be my top go-to for immune boosting.  As a ‘hot oil’ this one must be diluted before topical use, and is so potent you will only need a tiny amount.

    Thanks to the high levels of carvacrol, oregano oil may help fight certain types of bacteria. For instance, Staphylococcus is a common type of bacteria that causes staph infection. Some strains occur naturally in the body, but when the bacteria grow too quickly, it can cause bothersome symptoms. Research shows that carvacrol is effective in eliminating the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis, two common causes of infection. Taking oregano oil supplements or rubbing it on the skin may help a person make use of these antibacterial effects.

    A potent antifungal agent Oregano oil is also a potent antioxidant. Antioxidants help protect the body from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals.  Oxidative stress may lead to increased DNA damage and cell death. Oxidation may also play a role in other issues, such as arthritis, atherosclerosis,

    Oregano can all be used for reducing inflammation, and Healing wounds.

    Dilution guide for essential oils

    Dilution guide for essential oils

    I am often asked about dilution.  Because of the potency and purity of these oils, dilution will be necessary this is great as it means your oils will last longer and be able to be applied to your skin.

    Different oils have a warming or cooling effects on the skins such as oregano, or peppermint.  This can feel like a burning sensation on sensitive skin so always dilute and test before applying.  Whereas other oils such as Lavender are more soothing to the skin, and can be used with little or no dilution depending on age, and area of the body.

    Other things to consider with oil blends are the sun sensitive oils (Citrus) that can amplify the effects of the sun and cause burning if used on the skin before sun expose.

    Dilution Applications - Adults - Children

    Please keep in mind these charts are only a guideline to follow. When counting drops I tend to get that stubborn drop that won’t come out and then 2 drops come out It’s OK if your blend does not have the exact drops the chart is recommending (remember it is a guideline). Essential oil drops are really an inaccurate measure because the viscosity differs in oils and not all droppers used are the exact same, meaning drops are not a uniform measurement. So again, these are guidelines.

    Skin Care and Essential Oils

    Essential Oils can be great for the skin but where to start?

    Here is a quick list of oils – and the quickest way to get them into your regular routine.

    1. Helichrysum – When it comes to essential oils for skincare, nothing beats the effectiveness of Helichrysum. It contains anti-microbial, anti-biotic and regenerative compounds that promote healthy skin cell growth and regeneration. It also helps speed up healing of wounds, burns, and rashes and reduces scarring.  Add a few drops to your cleanser.

    2. Lavender (True or French) Whether you are trying to soothe skin irritation or merely nourish delicate skin, there are many uses of Lavender oil for skin. The soothing properties of Lavender essential oil have made it a popular option for skincare products, at-home skincare DIYs, and simple topical application.  Add to everything – Razor cream, face cream, hand cream, shampoo, and after sun gel.

    3. Tea Tree (Melaleuca) – Great for: acne, inflamed skin, fungal infections, sebum regulation, abscesses, boils, cold sores, cuts, and dandruff. If you have something, itchy, scratchy, or puffy, there’s a good chance tea tree oil can help you. Dab on any areas of concern or add to cleaner/toner

    4. Geranium Used cosmetically or topically in general, Geranium Essential Oil is reputed to contribute to the health of the skin cells and ultimately the health of the complexion. … Its astringent property helps tighten the skin and to diminish the appearance of the symptoms of aging, such as sagging and wrinkling skin. Best added to night or day cream, eye serum, and hand cream.

    5. Frankincense Boswellia... Great for: Mature skin, dry skin, wrinkles, scar tissue, eczema, acne, inflamed skin conditions, stretch marks and blackheads Even those who know nothing about essential oils are probably familiar with frankincense. What makes it so wonderful for the skin is its wound healing and regenerative properties. Because of this, Frankincense is effective on boils, acne and scarring. It can also help stretch marks to fade. Add to night or day cream, and eye cream.
