Extra Fee to Put Your Order In?

So I was flipping through a website last night and came across this ridiculousness. I mean, coming from that backend of business I can understand why some charges are implemented. Even though in the past I didn't really understand them. Restocking fees for example, it takes an employee time to pull items off a shelf, and get them ready to be shipped or picked up. That employee costs the business money to do that, in which they could be doing something else. If those need to be put bac...

Thanks to Everyone that Used the Free Shipping Code

Thanks to everyone that used the Free Shipping code this past month that we added to our newsletter. It may sound odd to thank you for using an option that costs US more money 😉. But we have a couple reasons why we appreciate this. A.

B. We know shipping cos...

I'd much rather sell our products to people we know, people that trust us, understand us, and even those we've known for years. People we hang out with, go to...

It takes a village to succeed

It takes a village doesn't it? When we first started out in the Health Food industry about 10 years ago, we didn't have much network, we didn't have much of a community.I had only been in business for a couple years, in which I had NO idea what I was doing. However we managed to grow our distributor base across Canada in the retail industry. No easy task, I woke up day after day, cold calling, following up with calls, sending samples, being hung up on and rude store managers that would say,...

My Superhero – Life of an Entrepreneur

I think it's easy to see all the good things, the smiles and the laughs and the beach - even the palm trees. You don't exactly see all that goes on behind the scenes. So here's a sneak peak at what life looks like at least for this superhero. Dorothy is up at 4am working on Young Living - answering questions, planning information groups, scheduling posts for her groups, coming up with prizes, contests and more. 9am rolls around - she's at school making videos for her kids, trying to fi...
