The founders of the company are David Stirling, Emily Wright, David Hill, Corey B. Lindley, Gregory P. Cook, Robert J. Young, and Mark A. Wolfert. Stirling, Wright and Dr. Hill.
The back story
doTERRA's founders started by investing almost everything they had in the company, unwilling to accept funding from sponsors because they wanted to own 51% of the company's shares plus control.
Why didn't they accept?
They didn't accept because the quality of the essential oils would have been affected because those sponsors wanted sales and strategies that would bypass the quality of the products.
So they decided to finance the company on their own, investing almost everything they had. This decision was a tough one for them, especially since that year was the great real estate crisis that shook the world.
By going through the hard times, making progress, and hoping, they managed to get the biggest company in the essential oil industry off the ground. Thanks to them we can have the highest quality essential oils on the market in our homes.
