Jeg er Henriette Kalgraff, grunderen som hoppet av en lang karriere i oljebransjen for å starte noe helt nytt!
Da jeg bestemte meg for at jeg ville noe annet enn å jobbe som sivilingeniør, hengte jeg dette sitatet opp på veggen på mitt kontor i Statoil. I dag, mange år etter, har jeg det fremdeles på veggen og det inspirerer meg mer enn noen gang!
“If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, TEACH IT.”
– Yogi Bhajan
In 2015, after 15 years in the oil and gas industry, I found myself empty on the inside. I was sick, stressed and unhappy. My soul was longing for something else. Work that I could be proud of, that I would love, that would nourish me. Work that would take care of Mother Earth instead of destroying her. Work that was healthy for my family.
I left my corporate job and started my own yoga studio. It felt like the best choice for my life, but after a while I realised that it was difficult to make enough income to support my family. The joy of starting my own business was soon replaced by stress of having enough money. I found myself working more hours then in my corporate job, being less present at home with my family, and my health was worse then ever. I was caught in a spiral of scarcity and bad health.
Then I had this moment of clarity in January 2017. I realized that I needed to make my health my first priority - my only prority. And I made a commitment to proritize my health and the health of my family. I started educating myself about the oils that I'd used for years, but really did not know how to use them.
I came to understand that the oils could support me and my kids on our wellness journey. I started using oils for everything, everyday. I soon gained amazing experiences with oils and began sharing. And after short time I realized that doTERRA could not only support my health, but also shift my relationship to money. Just the thought of having enough immediately calmed my nervous system. No matter how much yoga and meditation I practice, when I didn't have enough money to survive, I could not thrive.
As I started sharing and teaching how to use the oils, my business grew naturally and with ease. And my love for doTERRA grew everyday. Now, after 20 years of work experience, I finally can say that I have a job that I love, with a leader that I love, and a Company I love. And I have a community that teaches me everyday that the gift of live is to serve, to share and to support each other. That in order to care for others I need to take care of myself first. I thank doTERRA and Elena Brower for showing me a new way of life. Thank you.
