When starting your Young Living business, it is important to learn the best practices for running your business in an ethical way. Abiding by the Policies and Procedures and other ethical considerations keeps the Young Living community supportive and encouraging of one another and reduce competition among distributors.

General Guidelines

It is always best to check with a prospective member to assure they aren’t already discussing Young Living with another member. It is essentially up to the prospect who they decide to join, but it is best to do your due diligence to assure you aren’t stepping on someone else’s toes.
Singing up someone that is already in another downline, or encouraging a member to switch to your downline is definitely something you should never do. This website is here to support those that feel a lack of leadership, so feel free to guide people here for free support and resources.
