Life and Work with Allison Huish

Today we’d like to introduce you to Allison Huish.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Allison. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
20 years ago, I was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor. A large part of the tumor was inoperable. A family friend shared essential oils with my mom and told her she should look into essential oils and see if they could help with the inoperable part of my brain tumor that remained. Long story short, I was able to beat the inoperable part of my brain tumor with essential oils. I never did chemotherapy, radiation or any other form of alternative treatment.

Eight years ago, a friend started sharing my story about my brain tumor success and that propelled me into sharing essential oils with others, as people were coming to me wanting help with their own health issues. At the time, I was doing a dual masters program in nutrition when I started the business aspect with doTERRA (the world’s largest essential oil company).

I was very motivated and grew very fast in the company. At age 27, I was a 6 figure earner — life was good. A couple of years later, I got married to a wonderful young man who was just starting his schooling. The “deal” was that I would provide for us while I put him through school. And that after he got through school he would be the breadwinner and take care of us. So for three years, I put his goals, his schooling as the #1 priority. I helped him get through his undergrad degree at ASU. And in June 2018, we moved to Ireland to begin his masters in proton therapy.

On October 28th, Andrew came home late in the day after leaving me for a “guys sleep over”. Needless to say I was not very happy and his response to this was that he very unexpectedly told me he wanted a divorce. I watched him pack up everything for the next seven hours while I sat on our bedroom floor sobbing, And at one in the morning I watched him get in a cab and he left me. He left me in Ireland, alone. The following day I took care of breaking our lease, cleaned up the home, and returned home to Arizona a few days later.

My main business for the past eight years has been doTERRA. A network marketing business that has provided well for me, me and Andrew, and now it is what is supporting me as I am currently going through the divorce process. This business has been a HUGE blessing. It’s given me financial security. It’s allowed me to work from whatever spare bedroom I am currently living in (I still am living with the family at the moment). Finances are of zero concern as I am going through this experience of starting over in many areas. Everything from buying a car, to figuring out where I want to live, to building my business in a new area is all brand new for me.

I am so grateful for doTERRA and everything it has done for me. My teammates, the women that have stood by my side throughout this process are my best friends. They have been my rock, my support system throughout all of this. The paycheck has been a huge blessing. During this time, I have been able to put my needs, my healing as the #1 priority in how I spend my time. And the products — the products, these oils, have supported me so much emotionally as I go through this incredibly hard time.

My belief, my passion, my fire for helping women create their own residual income has grown 1000x. It is because of this experience the “opportunity” that comes through network marketing is real. It’s more real today than it ever has been.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No, certainly not! 20 years ago I had an inoperable brain tumor. So, my teens were spent dealing with a brain tumor, rumors of “Allison Huish has brain cancer.” My teens were focused on living a healthy lifestyle and beating a tumor. Not what most 13-year-olds go through.

For the past eight years, I have been working in sales. My business, doTERRA essential oil, requires a lot of personal development. It requires me to find the inner strength to keep going when I want to quit. It’s a business where I’m told “no” more than I’m told “yes.”

And now, with this recent trial of the unexpected divorce, it’s like crap hit the fan. Six months ago, I was living a wonderful life living in Europe, a great income, a spouse who was promising to work hard for us so that I wouldn’t have to work so hard once he was done. And now… well, now, I’m living in family members spare bedrooms, I had the pleasure of serving myself divorce papers in January and am having to do all of the steps required to end a marriage because of my husband’s poor choices. I still don’t own a car. I have walls up when it comes to opening myself up to possible future relationships because of the lies and how used I was from Andrew Gerry. I feel like for the past six months, I’ve been living in a nightmare that I just can’t wake up from.

Smooth road? Not at all, not at all.

Please tell us about doTERRA Essential Oils.
My main business is doTERRA essential oils. I got into essential oils 20 years ago when I was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor. Because of oils, I had absolutely incredible results. I don’t know where I would be today if it weren’t for that sweet person who shared oils with my mom. Because she shared with my mom, I believe in sharing these oils with others.

I’m currently the #1 online search hit when it comes to essential oils and tumors or cancers. I’ve been featured on online summits such as “The Truth About Cancer.” Tumors and cancers are my specialties. But I have LOTS of personal success stories and other passions that have developed over the years. Nutrition, weight loss, and hormones are just a few of my favorite topics. I’ve struggled with all of those, and I love helping others work through those too.

Now, with the unexpected divorce after my husband leaving me in Ireland I have new found passion for the importance of women having residual income. The “opportunity” available with residual income is POWERFUL. Network marketing is an amazing avenue for people to get started with low investment, low risk, high ROI business that can empower them in so many ways.

What advice would you give to someone at the start of her career?
It is SO important that women have their own way to earn an income and to be able to take care of themselves. We never know what life will bring — a disease, a death, or a divorce like me. When I was doing my undergrad 13 years ago, I thought my life would be totally different. I’d get married, have the perfect husband who took care of me, have a family, the perfect life.

But life doesn’t turn out how we hope it would. I didn’t get married to Andrew until I was 29. Then, after three years, three years of promises that my husband was working hard for me and our future, I found myself left in another country and being responsible for doing the entire divorce process. My life, my security is no longer an “us”, it’s 100% entirely me.

I firmly believe in marriage, in raising a family. But women, PLEASE do not make this your only focus in life. Make sure you have some independence, you keep strong to who YOU are as you go throughout life.
