  1. Jamie,

    It is so sad to see you promoting MLMS as a viable source of income to financially needy people. Nearly all MLMs are thinly veiled pyramid schemes that prey on the vulnerable and uneducated. Most people LOOSE money when they join an MLM (and YES, this includes Young Living, just look up their income disclosure statmemt, it’s public knowledge.) It’s shameful for you to use your Christian ministry to encourage people to join something that has a clear track record of deceving people (especially if they join your downline and you profit off of their deception). You are an educated business woman so it’s difficult for me to believe that you are ignorant of how MLMs work. I used to recommend you as a resource to other young moms but I can no longer in good conscience do so. Please prayerfully consider the message you are sending by promoting unethical businesses like Young living.

    • I understand your feelings as I too have had bad feelings towards MLM’s in the past based off of how friends have acted once joining them. But that doesn’t make the MLM “un Christian”. More than half of all new businesses fail in the first 2 years, and yes, this is true for MLMs as well. But I personally know dozens of women who use an MLM has a legitimate source of money. Especially those who are seeking to earn an extra few hundred dollars a month – an MLM can literally bring in a family’s grocery budget! Did you listen to the actual podcast? I did offer a ton of other fantastic option and mentioned that for some, an MLM can be a good option but obviously to look into everything. I have never done YL as a business and do not have anyone in my “downline”. I am however excited to help encourage my sister who needs that extra money to be able to stay home with her kids, a wonderful goal! And I do understand that not all MLM’s are profitable or set up well but there is nothing sinful or problematic for a Christian to join one. Please remember that when passing judgement on someone else for their business choices. How was behaves however when joining an MLM is of course very important. And sadly, I’ve seen many who don’t do their business according to how God would want us to treat others. But I’ve seen many others who have done it wonderfully and have helped so many people. 🙂

  2. Have your feelings about Young Livinf changed? I know you recommended Plant Therapy before which I now purchase. Do you still feel that Plant Therapy is still a good choice for essential oils? Thanks!
