WITH LIZZY PALIOS, MELBOURNE, FL
 
When Lizzy Palios saw other people in Young Living creating success, she had a powerful 3-word epiphany: WHY NOT ME? She had been using (and loving) the products for a year-and-a-half, but had never seriously thought about growing anything. That all changed after she left the mission field and moved to Florida so her husband could attend school. They couldn’t afford to rent their own place and were in the adoption process. Lizzy desperately wanted to stay at home with her new baby. So she began building with intention in 2017, moving steadily through the ranks and reaching Diamond in March 2021. Her secret from the get-go? To take the option of quitting off the table. If you and your team are teetering on the edge of “Quitsville,” don’t miss this inspiring chat between Richard and Lizzy.

WITH BECKY WEBB, BLOWING ROCK, NC
 
When Becky Webb began her journey, her desire wasn’t to change the world, but to change her OWN world. Her husband hated his job and they were tired of living paycheck to paycheck. There was never any money for vacations or “extras.” And emotionally, Becky needed something of her own outside the sometimes-confining role of “mom.” When Young Living came along, her passion for people quickly morphed into a thriving team. In year 1, she sponsored 60 people and reached the rank of Diamond in year 2. Now Becky’s desire is to help as many women as she can to unlock their gifts so they can see themselves in a new light and build a business they feel worthy of having.
