Hey, I’m Alice Abba
+ I'm a mum to 2 girls (Quinn and Mackenzie).
+ I'm a happiness and business mentor, a wellness guide (using my fave tools, essential oils) and a doTERRA Presidential Diamond leader, running a multi-million-dollar-team who live all over the world.
+ I’m known for living an aligned life, and being authentic in my mum life and my biz life (no ‘perfection’ filters here).
+ I’m known for working with passionate, intelligent and self-driven mums who are ready and open to receive my guidance and support as they unearth—and lean into—their potential and grow their businesses (especially in the post-motherhood journey).
+ I'll take couch hangs over networking events any day.
+ Coffee is my spirit animal (long black with pouring cream, thanks).
+ I've been hanging out with my love for over 10 years and decided to marry him in 2011. It’s going kinda well. (Kidding; I love him)
+ I decided to trade in my fulltime job in wellness (managing a part of a billion dollar yoga company) to grow a business that supports my family in a way I used to dream about.
+ I did this (mostly) from my couch with a laptop and a iPhone, and with so much freedom: farmer’s markets dates with my family instead of hurried meetings; sunny backyard play dates with my girls instead of a 9-5 job, building sandcastles on a Tuesday instead of rushing off to work (I’d love to show you how you can do this too).
+ Home is the beautiful Burleigh Heads, Australia, and last year we lived out one of our biggest goals…..as a family as we travelled and worked with our two little girls in Bali, California, Mexico and Canada for 7 months.
+ This is what my business has allowed us to do… and yes, you can be sure my oils were the first thing I packed.
The life I’ve created through the doTERRA business (and alongside my amazing tribe) makes me want to cry with gratitude, constantly.
I want you to have access to this same path. (Because this is so very possible for you too.)
I want you to wake up every single day feeling safe, secure and sustained in your business, your home life, and your bigger vision, knowing you can support your family with ease.
I want you to feel deeply connected to other women, as well as deeply connected to yourself, and to what you want to create in your life.
I’m no different to you… this business truly is something that anyone can create.
I know that being a work-from-home mum isn’t always perfect, but I also know that having the freedom, choice and flexibility to create abundance for yourself—and for your family—is the best thing ever. In fact, I’d say it’s up there with one of the most empowering feelings a woman and mum can experience.
However, I didn’t always have financial freedom like I do now.
I didn’t always have the option of travelling with my young family for six months.
And I certainly didn’t always have the stability of a rock-solid base and consistent income…
Here's how it all began...
In early 2014, I was just returning to work after almost seven months on maternity leave with my first daughter, Quinn.
I was going back to a job I absolutely adored, with this billion dollar yoga brand you may have heard of: Lululemon Athletica.
And while I felt my heart break over leaving my daughter for the first time (especially with her being so tiny), I was also so excited to be heading back into grown-up land. Being able to eat whenever I wanted, and having the freedom to go to the toilet without a baby hanging off me sounded like heaven!
And at first, it truly was.
I loved that I was constantly surrounded by incredible new friends, being paid to practice yoga, and living in stretchy pants all day, every day. But I slowly felt things shifting after almost a year of juggling two very demanding roles: motherhood, and managing a three million dollar business.
More and more, I noticed that I was feeling torn, exhausted, and misunderstood.
And I felt like I was doing a shitty job both at work, and at home.
While I craved joy, abundance, energy, connection and purpose, I just felt conflicted, chaotic, exhausted and broke.
And when I say broke, we were really broke.
We were getting the maximum government assistance payout and we were still struggling to make ends meet.
We were in a constant cycle of paying bills and struggling. From the outside it looked like we were doing fine—a beautiful family, a good job with a good company—but we hid a lot of the financial stress really well and, over time, it affected us physically, mentally and emotionally.
When we discovered I was pregnant with our second daughter, it gave me an opportunity to reflect on what I wanted my future with my husband, our daughter, and a new babe on the way, to look like.
I was at breaking point, and I knew that things had to change; we couldn’t go on like this.
I went on maternity leave early (at 7-months pregnant) with the intention of really utilising that time to start my doTERRA business.
(Yes, that’s a seemingly inconvenient time to be pursuing a passion business, except that when the pull is so strong you can’t ignore it, you realise it’s the perfect time!)
I started with doTERRA for the simple fact that the oils were a beautiful, natural product that I was aligned to, and that was it.
But after only a few months, I struggled to think about what I’d do without these pure, therapeutic oils in my life.
And now, after two years in my business, I don’t know where I’d be without these oils… and without doTERRA.
Motherhood has been one hell of a ride for me, and with a lot of mental illness in my family, it’s been important for me to be in the practice of taking care of my body and emotions so that I can be the most fully present mum and wife.
I know my little girls are looking up to me; I know they’ll treat themselves in the future based on how I treat myself now, and this means so much to me. My family and I weave in lots of self-care into life these days.
It’s not a luxury in our home take care of ourselves; and using essential oils to do so, is top of our list.
⇢ I’ve grown The Happy Collective, a tribe of 8000+ incredible women (and a few guys!) from around the world, who all share the same high-vibe lifestyle and love for doTERRA essential oils.
⇢ I mentor a percentage of those people who are interested in turning their love for the oils into an abundant business, just like I have. And nope, this isn’t your average product biz where you host a few parties and get some free stuff; this opportunity opens a doorway into abundance, connection and prosperity that takes your life to new heights. Learn more about what’s possible for you when you join my tribe here.
⇢ I replaced my full-time senior manager salary just by educating, inspiring and empowering others, within 12 months of official maternity leave! As a Presidential Diamond leader, I now earn monthly what I previously earned in a year.
I share these numbers with transparency, to show you that very real abundance can be created in this business, and that when we are free of money struggles and the heaviness of debt, money allows us to truly show up in the world. To be. To LIVE. To GIVE.
And all of this, I created (mostly) during nap times, with two small babes by my side.
Being on this journey with doTERRA (and with my tribe), allows you to live freely, to lead yourself and others, and to give back in a big way.
Most of all, it allows you to create abundance for your family; an abundance of money, freedom, flexibility, and time spent with your loved ones.
I’m so grateful for these essential oils, and this business that has allowed me to experience more presence with my two girls without sacrificing my feeling of purpose (beyond the motherhood title), or my ability to create a solid income for myself and my family.
I’m grateful that I don’t have to compromise or even aim to ‘have it all’.
I’m grateful that I get to lead and live my way.
And I’m so excited to be able to guide you in your own authentic network marketing business too, if you’re ready.
Now that you know a little more about me, I invite you to:
PS.....about that time I set a goal to speak at doTERRA's Leadership Retreat on the topic of Happiness in Leadership. And then 2 years later it actually happened! (Check it out below)
