One of the greatest talents and skills in leadership is leverage! Most leaders see leverage in a one dimensional world; meaning, they leverage from a conceptual and practical process. However, leverage is most powerful through a multi-dimensional esoteric process. For example when we know our core values, mission and passion we think and create differently.
Our interview today with Patti Dolan is an exceptional example of how we can leverage through our internal world and our external world. Patti's passion is serving God, family, health and impacting humanity. Through her Christian Yoga Studio, focus on wellness practices and passion for leadership she has created a multi-faceted process for honoring her health, educating others through wellness practices, offering extraordinary products through Young Living and living a life surrounded around her faith.
Patti has created a model that offers her balance through her career and personal life and is impacting lives and leading others how to create their own economy sharing products through Young Living. I am so excited for you to hear her story and how her core values, mission and purpose has paved a path for her to create her rendition of an ideal life.

When the student is ready the teacher appears. My guest, Zelia Malherbe, has built an amazing organization, earned top recognition for personal and group performance, promoted to the Vice President Sales Leader position and leads one of the top organizations in Norwex.
It's not a surprise considering Zelia is constantly evolving herself through many forms of education and coaching. I know this first hand since I have had the pleasure of coaching with Zelia in Lifeline's Million Dollar Protege Leadership Program and I have witnessed, first hand, her commitment and promise to provide her team with extraordinary activities, resources and mentoring! If I had to choose one word that best describes Zelia, it's perseverance. She has hit obstacles and adversities HEAD ON and consults with God to guide her.
In 2008 Zelia and her family moved to Australia. Six months later she hosted a Norwex party and was offered the business opportunity. Zelia wasn’t interested in joining because public speaking terrified her. A few weeks later Zelia realized that she needed to start earning an income again so she could justify personal expenditures separate from her family budget. She joined Norwex through the Holy Spirits guidance and the rest, my friends, is history!

Most of the population is under the illusion that success derives from what we do when in reality our success derives from who we are. You can't buy joy, positivity, focus, empowerment or any characteristic. You become it! Who we become internally is what we manifest externally.
Joy, positivity, focus and empowerment are attributes that describe my guest, Joni Garcia. Joni is one huge bundle of joy! I have had the pleasure of having several conversations and a few coaching calls with Joni and I was awestruck by her life story and her success with Keep Collective.
Joni has led her organization to 2,000 in just 18 months. Joni was one of the first 20 to promote to the prestigious position of Star Executive in Keep Collective.

I believe we are all scheduled to evolve, pay our gifts forward and make our mark on the planet. I remember the first conversation I had with my guest Lee Hendricks. It took my breath away! Lee has lived a life committed to guiding others on how to honor their bodies, amplify their vitality and in some cases heal themselves. Lee spent many years in traditional healthcare however always guiding her patients to wellness products and rituals.
After experiencing doTerra products for a period of time and sharing them with her patients Lee was so amazed with the results that she felt the conviction to share them with as many people as she could. As a result, her business organically grew into a multifaceted experience of sharing the oils, coaching others how to effectively use them and a growing organization of successful advocates doing the same.
Lee comes from deep waters, modeling to us all to live by our purpose, mission and passion. I am so excited for you to experience our time with Lee Hendricks.

Have you ever met someone and felt instantly connected to them? Several years ago I had a client who's company was experiencing hardship and we coached on companies that might be an ideal fit for her relative to her mission and core values. I pointed her to a company, my client joined and was placed under the wing of Gina Thayer.
Gina's leadership, support and strategic planning supported my client to grow one of the top teams in Gina's company. I've known Gina for several years and she truly is one of my Hero's. In fact I can't remember a time that I've mentioned the word Hero on my show. I can remember the first time I met her and how real she was. Big wow!
Several years ago Gina was invited to a party that she dreaded attending. The experience broke her beliefs about the Direct Sales Industry and weeks later she stepped into the unknown world of Direct Sales. Gina began to thrive on self development, a mission to serve others and empower them to grow into their full potential. She built a top national team and several years ago was called by her faith to partner with a new company. That was another success.
Gina supported them in growing to a leading direct sales company. Gina is authentic, playful, joyful, strategic and lives a full out faithful life. I'm so honored to have her on the leadership Lifeline Radio.

Have you ever had a thought that became an idea and led to an opportunity that changed your life? My guest Kiersten Ray-Kuhn was looking for a job to supplement her income and after a night of wine tasting with her friends she thought it would be fun to work for a company that created wine tasting experiences. The next day she researched on line and was led to The Traveling Vineyard. She decided to join and now is a Diamond Director and humbly leads the top team company wide.
Kiersten has also earned several all-expense paid trips and the prestigious Spirit of Leadership Award. Some of the attributes that I believe describe Kiersten are grateful, transparent, empowering and inspirational.

A few months back I flew into Denver for my Create a Life & Business You Love Seminar customized for Norwex and my amazing client Sue Thompson asked one of her leaders to transport me to the seminar. During our 30 minute commute I was awestruck by Barb’s mission, leadership philosophy and growth. Then I realized she was a member in our Protégé Program and had held 10 parties the month before and sold $10,000. The story gets even better. Later that afternoon I met one of Barbara’s leaders and I was blown away over her life story, ability to connect and the partnership Barb and Heather had developed. So I decided to ask both of them to be interviewed together on the Leadership Lifeline Radio.

Today you’ll hear a great example of how two leaders with different gifts but similar missions have partnered together to create their own individual ideal life and business. Get ready to be moved, touched and inspired.

After 12 years in pharmaceutical sales Shannon realized that she was trading income for passion with her "Gold Handcuffs" job as a pharmaceutical rep so she began thinking and writing about what she desired deep down in an ideal career. Just a few months later her company laid off numerous reps nationally and Shannon saw that as an opportunity to seek her ideal career. After diving into writing and contemplating her ideal career she realized that Direct Sales was an ideal fit.

(67) Julie Wetherhold on The Leadership Lifeline with Steve Q. Wiltshire (Episode 67)
In Marianne Williamson's bestselling book, The Law of Divine Compensation on Work Money and Miracles, she writes, "While the power of negativity is clear to most everyone, the power of vigorous positivity receives short shrift in comparison. Positivity is more than the absence of the negative; it is the presence through thoughts, word and action of the positive. If we're interested in creating miracles, in invoking the most powerful creative manifestation, we must proactively be positive."
Our guest, Julie Weatherhold, radiates positivity in all that she does and who she is. She owns it! Julie is a former educator and after joining her direct sales company for a little fun, she soon saw the vision to build her dream career and bring her talent of inspiring and educating others to her ever growing team.
In just 18 months she has built an organization of over 600 and promoted to the senior executive level. Her passion is empowering women to evolve to their greatest capacity.

Often our adversities are disguised as opportunities to see what we are capable of.  My guest Ellen Lewis sold her business about a decade ago to free up her time for her ideal life and took a leap of faith that she would attract the ideal opportunity.

Ellen was invited to a launch party for a friend and although the product wasn't a fit, she saw a vision for herself in the Direct Sales Industry and stepped into action to find a company that would be ideal.

What we think about, comes about.  Ellen was practicing the concepts taught in Rhonda Byrne's best selling book and movie, "The Secret." Ellen became very specific about what she wanted to attract in a career and one of the key components was an ideal mentor. 

Fast forwarding almost ten years ago, Ellen's journey has been a dream come true.  Ellen has been recognized for many achievements and gives full credit to her amazing team.  Ellen's passion is mentoring others to lead their life and pay it forward.  I've had the honor of supporting Ellen in Lifeline's Million Dollar Protege Leadership Program.  Ellen is a student in service of others, meaning she's all about expanding her knowledge in service of mentor others to grow in leadership.

What are you saying "NO" to? When you realize that we create our own reality here on Earth, you realize that everything you encounter is a reflection of something you have gravitated towards with your own consciousness by choice. This reality really clicked for this generous leader when she was introduced to "The Secret." Once Maree was aware of The Secret she started to notice the opportunities she was consciously bringing forth for herself and just like most of us, had a choice, to take the opportunity or not. 

Many of us can seriously relate to finding our own awareness of the fact that we truly have a choice, no matter the situation. Once you become consciously aware of where you are going, clarity comes naturally. We all need to be reminded of this from day to day until it becomes your adopted habit.
After many years of conscious practice Presidential Diamond Leader, Maree Cottam has built an organization of over 23,000 and is now in the top 1% of her company.
Maree's story proves that seeking and evolving your awareness is the key to unlocking the main purpose for us all, which is to realize that you have a choice. You are going to LOVE this interview with this incredible soul of light and love, Maree Cottam.

Frank AuCoin is the perfect example of a service minded leader and person that makes a conscious choice to create a positive difference in the world. Born with an interesting disability, Frank was unable to read and quit school in the 6th grade! Back in the day when teachers thought any issue a child may have which caused them to not be able to learn how to read translated to a child that was unable to learn. Medical science has now realized that this is not the case. There are spectrums of disabilities and/or disease with just about any problem one could have and each type of issue is different. Frank's issue was actually more of a physical disability with his eyes, not his brain. In fact, he was one of the smartest children in the class.
He has since taught himself everything he knows. Frank studies various subjects for 6-8 hours a day, and has built an empire in direct sales along with several other businesses, written books, created libraries, bookstores and has been written about in Wall Street Journal and quoted in Fortune Magazine. With all the amazing things Frank has accomplished, he still remains of of the most personable and humble humans we have ever met.
Get stimulated to succeed with Frank AuCoin and Steve Wiltshire!

Get inspired by learning how to support your friend, spouse or family member that starts a business in Direct Sales. Ken & Danette are proof that your support will pay off in a big way, not just monetarily, but personally and professionally as well!

Danette has always been in the education field and Ken in the corporate world. Let's just say that Ken was a bit skeptical when trying to wrap his head around how to create a successful business with a direct sales company and jokingly told Danette to "invite the CEO over for dinner and we'll talk." Not too long after, there was the CEO, over for dinner so that Ken could pick his brain.

Beth Reed did not have the best opinion about the direct sales industry.  Network marketing was not something she could see herself getting into at all, except - as a consumer.  She was, in her words, a kit napper!  One that wants the products at a discount but Beth had no real intention to sell the products and create a life around the industry.  After she saw others friends really wanting the product and booking party after party, a snowball situation occurred.

After loosing her position with her corporate job Beth decided to commit to her rapidly growing direct sales business full time and, WOW, did she build something to be extremely proud of!

Steve's interview with positive motivator, Beth Reed, will remind you of the reason you got into this business in the first place and really encourage you to be the best version of yourself you can be.
