Persistence is key for Nicole and Danny Larson. It's what brought them together, kept them on the path to becoming doterra founders, and allowed them to build a successful doTERRA business. An essential oil company that changes the world drop by drop. Imagine the world 12 years ago, when most people were unaware of the benefits of essential oils and access to purity was limited.
At that time, the hearts and minds of seven qualified individuals came together under the visionary leadership of David Stirling to form a unique organization called doTERRA. Now, take a minute to breathe in the incredible progress in global expansion and the opportunities that have exploded, as doTERRA is recognized as the world leader in what has become an eight billion dollar essential oil industry. As David continues to lead doTERRA as CEO, his natural abilities to guide unprecedented global growth, including new market openings, and truly remarkable co-impact sourcing, benefit the entire doTERRA family. Through all of David's accomplishments, he continues to place people's growth and progress as the first priority of his leadership, guiding others through his kindness and service-centered mindset.
He will tell you that his greatest accomplishments are the many wonderful friends, exciting adventures and incredible service opportunities that have been created for the entire doTERRA family, through the growth and success of doTERRA.
