We’re happy to introduce you to Amanda, the gal behind The Mill!
Tell us a bit about how you got started with your business / blog / venture that we branded.
I became interested in essential oils and wanted something to help my children sleep well. I started using oils from our natural food store and became frustrated because I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I thought essential oils were bogus and couldn’t understand why everyone was raving about them. I was telling a friend at work about my frustrations and she told be about Young Living. She brought her oils to work the next day so I could check them out. There was a very noticeable difference. I decided to buy the starter kit for only $160, after she told be I did NOT have to work the business. After I started using them with my family and we began experiencing amazing results. I started posting about the changes and benefits we were experiencing and people wanted what we were getting. So I decided to get them started with their own kit. That was in January 2016. Now our team has grown to over 1100 members who are all passionate about living a life of wellness, purpose and abundance, sharing that opportunity with others and helping them find their way to freedom!

Tell our readers a bit about the branding process!
I loved working with Lily. I had a general idea of what I wanted form my brand, colors, etc. I had tried several times on my own to create something that was truly symbolic of our team, brand and culture and fell short every time. After telling Lily, my thoughts and sharing ideas I had on Pinterest, she was able to make my vision come alive. After coming up with the main logo, we worked on the sublogo. We had the general idea down and after a 2 emails, it was finalized. next, we decided on patterns. I wasn’t expecting this and truly was getting more than my expectations. I asked for a few changes and they were easily completed within the next day!
What does the future hold for you?
I’m excited to have a logo that holds true to our vision and goals as a team of people that lift each other up, supports others, and provided education on a healthier lifestyle and easy choices that can accommodate those desires everyday. We share passionately about the things we love and why. We help others join the wellness and natural minded moment. We are on our way to the highest paid rank within Young Living and are inviting those who pursue freedom and a better lifestyle to join us!
