[Compensation Plan Part Five] Legs, teamwork and what’s it gotta to do with me?

COMP PLAN-05.jpg

Ok so after a long hiatus, I decided to finish up the compensation plan series once and for all.

Are you all with me so far? Good! Let’s go!

If you have gotten as far as to have a few downlines under you, you might began to realise that with support and guidance from you, some of your downlines would have started using the oils and getting good results with them.

And human nature dictates that they must share a good thing right? Especially if they have loved ones and dear friends that they want to share the good news on the Young Living oils.

So you may see that in time, some of them would have enrolled their own downlines and therefore making your little group a little deeper. Instead of just having immediate downlines (first level downlines) under you, you might even have second level, third levels, and so forth.

Some people love sharing a good thing and if you are intrigued by the business building aspect of YL and is open to creating a source of income from it, this is where the fun starts!

Firstly some terms to get clear:

1. Legs – Practically everything has legs! The last time I checked, I have two. A tripod has three. A table has four. Errr…. please don’t ask me what has five and six legs.

A leg is basically a downline under you who may or may not have downlines under her. To count it as a leg, the topmost person of a leg needs to be on 100 PV to qualify it as such.

2. Organisation Group Volume (OGV) – this is basically you and your group of downlines’ total PV generated for the month.

3. Ranks – Well YL isn’t an army but there’s ranks to aspire and ascend to if you like that kind of thing. The upside is as you advance in rank, you technically would be entitled to more payouts too. The downside is you can become busier as your group gets larger… wait that’s actually a good thing if you are looking to build and create a wonderful income source for yourself. 🙂

Here’s a nice graphic to show the beginning ranks and what qualifies you for them:

Foundation Level


Level 1-5 refers to the level of downlines you have. Usually at the beginning levels, YL only requires you to have a certain OGV to qualify. However at the rank of Executive, it pans out a little differently. Besides the OGV of 4000, YL requires you to have two LEGS that has 1000 PV each. This sets the stage for you to step up as a leader as theoretically it means that you have two friends or downlines who are happy to build with you as well. As their upline, they may also look to you to guide and support them in their own building journeys.

This is also where teamwork comes into play.

Because you cannot advance unless the three of you play the game together and help each other advance too.

If you are serious about creating an income source that becomes residual later, then in my humble opinion, the rank to really look at is Silver. Here’s the Silver requirements:


You can see that the Silver requirements is basically an EXPANSION of the Executive requirements. From a OGV of 4000, you gotta hit an OGV of 10,000 and your two legs of 1000 would become two legs of 4000. In other words, YL requires you to more than double your OGV to  hit the rank. This is also where the business structure of MLM comes into play where you shouldn’t be doing ALL the work to grow 4000 to 10,000 but leverage and work with your team to level up TOGETHER.

The Silver rank also rewards teamwork done well as it grants 2 different payouts. The first payout is the generation payout where you receive an additional 2.5% of the entire OGV (excluding yourself). Imagine 2.5% of a 10,000 OGV… 250 PV which is equals to USD250. And that’s the minimum. As your group increases in OGV, so does your commission.

You would also receive a leadership share (this supersedes the Rising Star Team Bonus) that is worth around USD150 at this time.

On top of this, YL rewards you further if you are able to encourage and motivate more of your downlines to become Silvers too. For every Silver under you up to the second generation, the OGV of her group is paid at a 3% to you instead of 2.5%. So that’s technically USD300. In addition, YL rewards you with an additional leadership share for every Silver under you. So that’s an additional USD150 for every Silver in your organisation. 🙂

I’m going to stop here right now as I know this article can be a lot to digest at a go. If you need further clarity on building, I highly encourage you to attend a YL compensation plan class where all the details can be provided. This article is meant to give you a taste of how far it can go with building.

Drop me a comment here too if you’ll like to ask questions. Happy to help!

[Compensation Plan Part Four] Snow White and Her 7 Dwarfs… or also known as Rising Star Team Bonus!

COMP PLAN-06.jpg

Ok so you made it to Part Four. 🙂 I’ll ease into today’s compensation plan lesson by telling a story.

Snow White has been sharing about the oils to her little friends, i.e. the seven dwarfs. I’m not sure who introduced her to YL (lol) but she has been on Essential Rewards (ER) for quite some time now. Thanks to her sweet caring nature, the dwarfs soon got into the oils:

Grumpy got Joy and Release. He loves diffusing them and applying them over his heart and liver.
Happy got Abundance so he could feel happier.
Sleepy loves Peppermint and Cedarwood to keep him alert.
Bashful often uses Valor for courage.
Sneezy, thanks to lavender and purification, sneeze no more!
Dopey tried everything because he wasn’t quite clear on what he needs. 😉
Doc loves frankincense and sandalwood as he’s pretty into the reprogramming of DNA stuff.

The dwarfs in time, got their own ER memberships and began to spread the word of the YL oils in the ahem, Dwarf Country. Some of them even have their own downlines. When it was time for YL to send out the commission report, Snow White has a nice surprise. She received Rising Star Team Bonus shares for the following:

1. Grumpy, Happy and Sleepy who did 300 PV orders that month. [1 share]
2. Bashful was afraid that Valor would soon run out of stock in Singapore so he stocked up to 500 PV. Sneezy thinks that the haze is coming again so he also stocked up to 500 PV too. [2 shares]
3. Because Dopey tried everything, he shared his oily testimonials with his friends. His friends signed up for their own YL accounts under him and the whole Dopey group hit 1000 PV. Doc also has similar success (he was hoping to set up a clinical practice with the oils) and his group also hit 1000 PV. [3 shares]

Each share at this time of writing, is worth USD50. Every month, Snow White can try to qualify for the shares again by fulfilling the same conditions in this exact order for the next 2 years. She and her 7 friends must be on ER for her to qualify:

1. Three downlines (either by themselves or with their own downlines) of minimum 300 PV each
2. Two more downlines (either by themselves or with their own downlines) of minimum 500 PV each
3. Finally, another two more downlines (either by themselves or with their own downlines) of minimum 1000 PV each
