As a leader with doTERRA, we get invited to the Orlando Leadership Retreat each year.
We stayed at a local hotel this time, instead of renting a condo.
Sweet Avery filled up her traditional "Love Box" with hugs and kisses so we wouldn't run out or be lonely while we were gone from them. PRECIOUS!
She also made sure we went from kid to kid and filled their hearts with extra hugs and kisses for when they missed us. <3
Even though we miss the kids and the comforts of the RV, it's always so fun to connect with our team leaders, and learn more how to lead strong with this great company called doTERRA!
I love learning about all the latest things doTERRA has been up to in their giving and growing. My favorite part about doT is their HUGE hearts and humanitarian efforts all over the world.
They are a billion dollar, debt free company with a heart to SERVE and give and help! LOVE this!
We pay the farmers we hire, fair wages, on time, no middle men gouging prices. We help drop wells, build schools and build and staff medical clinics and hospitals in rural areas with no help. We have an organization called Healing Hands Foundation that helps to pay for all these things as well as supporting other ministries like micro loans for small businesses, Days for Girls and Operation Underground Railroad to rescue and rehabilitate sex trafficked kids.
DoTERRA is also expanding its campus and adding a medical clinic using all the areas of care, chiropractic, nutritionalist, holistic and adding oils to it all! Health care is about to change.
In addition to this facility in Salt Lake City, UT, they are looking to open other clinics all across the USA! Pretty exciting!
We also got to work with Gallup on Strength Based Leadership and how to focus on what our leaders are GOOD at, as opposed to our weakness focused society. POWERFUL stuff!
We got to take the strength finders test, and here is what Dale and I got. I am anxious to utilize these tools with our team and our own growth, to use those God given giftings for HIS glory and for really big things in doTERRA!
It's not ALL learning, we get to have some fun too. There is always a THEMED PARTY night! Whoop whoop! We've done 80's, Super Hero, and now.....
Into the Deep Blue Sea
Get it? Like Deep Blue Oil. Pretty awesome!
No I am not bruised, that's makeup scales! I packed a little piece of potato sack so I could make the scaley look. Too bad I couldn't find another color, green and purple looks like a bruise, but OH WELL, still fun, right?!
Dale wouldn't dress up with me - party pooper! So we found him a Shark Week shirt and added a phrase to the back:
It's Shark Week Ya'll.
Thank God there is an oil for that!!!
It's called Clary calm and it TOTALLY works for the females in this house. Haha! :)
We had matching shirts, Mermaids and even a Sea Week Queen!
We were still hungry after, so we hit the streets to go find a place to eat. You'd have thought Orlando had never seen hungry sea creatures before! Haha :)
It got cool enough, Dale decided to go get the car and come pick us all up.
How many mer-creatures would fit inside good ol' Flexie?
We were about to find out!
On the last day of retreat, we could NOT find parking, just one spot remained by 2 mom mobiles that both parked crooked over their lines. I hopped out to go search out another spot.
Low and behold, I see Dale preparing to back INTO SAID TIGHT SPOT. What a nut!
It was so tight he had to crawl out the BACK HATCH......I was DYING laughing as was everyone else that drove by. Never a dull moment with this one I tell ya.
Sure do love doing life with him! <3
And just like that it was time to celebrate new leader ranks and head back home to utilize all we learned.
