How to PREP for convention
How to get everything you want from events
It's that time of year again where we are headed to dōTERRA's Annual Convention! This is our 6th year attending and we have a lot to share on how to get the most out of this event.
I know what it is like in your first few times coming. You spent a lot of money to come out and it is so important to get everything out of this event. I promise that if you read this and listen to the audio I have attached YOU WILL HAVE A VERY SUCCESSFUL EXPERIENCE
FIRST A WARNING: If you do not take these tips seriously you will go home completely exhausted and feeling overwhelmed. THIS IS NOT THE PURPOSE of these or any events.
Take these tips to heart and do some simple prep work before coming out.
OK HERE WE GO!
1. THINK ABUNDANTLY
Every year we go there are always stories of people who are angry with other people taking their seats, or pushing in lines, or feeling like they will never get to see everything they need.
Start thinking abundantly now. Here is a great belief and mantra to repeat. "I will get everything I need. I will see everything I need. I will do everything I need to do and I will walk away ready with the next step in my business and education"
2. REMEMBER WHO CONVENTION IS PREPARED FOR
Convention is really for those people who are in the very early stages of their business. That means the presentations and the information is perfect for those who need more belief in the company and the products. Don't be upset if there isn't more in depth information on all the steps to building a business or super in depth information on all the science behind the products. That leads perfectly into...
3. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF CONVENTION
Decide now and look for it. I promise you will find it in abundance.
I look for community and the people we have connected with over the years of building our business and sharing all we have learned. This slideshow below is just a sample of all the amazing people I got to meet with last year. This business really is the best. I"M GETTING PUMPED!
4. TAKE NOTES FOR REFERENCE NOT A TO DO LIST
Overwhelm comes from overload and no organization. Write every idea down. Make tabs. Do whatever you want to organize it but realize it's not a to do list. It's a reference you can go back to later. This will empower you to write everything down without feeling like it's just adding to your workload. Then focus on ONE THING!
5. POW WOW WITH YOUR LEADERS
Meet with people and create plans, share ideas and work together. It's extremely rare to be with this many of your team at one time. SO TALK IT UP!
6. MEET NEW PEOPLE
There is something we all need to help us build this business and grow our Essential Oil knowledge. It's something you can't get from your Upline or Downline. It's something you can only get from other people who are peers in this business but not IN your business. This kind of support and accountability is the best and we have seen it in our own productivity and development over the last few years. MAKE SOME NEW FRIENDS AND AGREE TO MEET UP AGAIN AFTER CONVENTION!
