Rank #2: Build a Community & Business Will Follow: A Conversation with Courtney & John Critz
In this episode of Drop of Inspiration, guest host and US General Manager Jeff Pearson sits down with Royal Crown Diamonds Courtney and John Critz to discuss wellness as a priority in all aspects of life and how to build a community through sharing one’s talents and resources.
At a young age, Courtney Critz learned from her mother that individual health and the health of her family were her responsibility. When Courtney first experienced Young Living essential oils, she initially loved the convenience and simplicity of the oils in helping her with that responsibility.
As a loyal leader, Courtney spends her time focused on people. She measures her success not by how much she does, but by the love she shows to God, family, friends, and strangers. “People matter more to me,” she says, “than what I’m trying to get done.” Her husband, John, uses his skills in technology to work with Courtney as they teach their teams. She is passionate about freedom—financial freedom, time freedom, and emotional freedom. At home, Courtney is a stay-at-home mom who loves teaching her and John’s seven children.
Rank #3: Joy in the Journey: A Conversation with Ben Riley and Jen Jordan
On today’s episode we’re lucky to sit in on a conversation between two friends: Chief Sales Officer Ben Riley and Royal Crown Diamond Jen Jordan. Growing up, Jen knew she wanted to be a doctor; but on her way to getting a degree, she realized that another calling may be more suited to her skillset and desires. In her words, she “handed her dream over to God,” and when a husband and then three children came into her life, she felt that her decision was confirmed and her role as a wife and mother took priority. Today, she helps others become their own wellness advocates and continues to energize any room or community she walks into.
Jen’s experience with oils began around 2009 when her sister, April Pointer—also a Royal Crown Diamond—introduced her to Young Living. Jen started using essential oils two years later, but only as a “closet oiler,” despite the fact that the oils changed her life. She reluctantly taught her first class, thinking that the attendees would just “go away” after listening. Of course, that didn’t happen.
With a life motto of “Love God; love people,” Jen has built her business around encouraging, empowering, and building up others. She explains that she is “continuing a culture of positivity” in the lives of the leaders she works with. Jen and her husband, Adaryll, are inspired to continue that generosity with those they meet in everyday life.
