About Me

My Story & Hello There…

I’m Bobbi Raffin and Thank you so much for stopping by. I really do appreciate it. 🙂 

My home-life consists of Jesus, my husband, two kiddos, two out-of-the-home step-kiddos, and our critters, which consists of three quirky pups (they’ll always be pups to me), a bearded dragon, a crazy black cat we found in a blackberry bush when she was about 3 months old. Her name is … wait for it … Blackberry.  AND about 24 Koi fish-kids.

My Story…

I was raised on the side of a mountain in Grants Pass, Oregon with my Grandparents. We had a farm and I so loved it. We rented the property and took care of the animals the owner had. 

So I was raised around a lot of cows, a few bulls and many horses. Plus our own farm animals. We had pigs, chickens, guineas, a couple of cows, and always a kitty and puppy – or two or more. 🙂 

My Grandpa would put in a huge garden every year also. He was also known for his Flaky Country FUDGE. Oh… How I miss him and his homemade fudge. I was always the tester. I took my job very seriously. 

My Grandma could create about any dish, knew the best old-time home remedies, and picked mushrooms every year with my Great Grandma and me.

We hemmed what was torn instead of buying new. We made our own butter and I drank milk right from the cow. Most of the time I ran around barefoot and cried when I was forced to wear a dress.

My Grandparents had taken me to a doctor only twice growing up. It was ‘normal’ for me to have headaches and stomach issues… Or so I thought it was normal.  

This was my Moon Mountain Era… Lots of stories to tell.

As A Teen…

I then lived with my Mom. This was a trying time. She was at first married to an abusive man and then became a Single Mom.

When I was 17, in 1983, I flew to Japan by myself. I had won a modeling contract that was held in Oregon and Washington. Only one was chosen in Oregon and one was chosen in Washington. I was the Oregon gal and Paula (still miss her) was chosen for Washington.  We actually ended up having to escape Japan. Long story there. 

A short-story should be written about this adventure someday…Maybe I’ll do that.

I began my online working conquest in 1999. My doctor said I needed bed-rest for my first baby so I quit my job. It was still important that I contribute to the income though. I had never been online yet. Back then most businesses still did not have internet access or provide staff with online access. 

I didn’t have it at home either. I had grown up pretty poor and still lived with that poverty mentality. Let me tell you right now – God doesn’t want us in lack, but we need to do our part.

Now jumping to the present…

I have many stories of struggles and of triumph, but this I will leave for my blog posts.

I am enjoying my Essential Oil journey. Loving both the benefits and the business side of it all.

My Young Living site is at: YLdist.com/BobbiRaffin if ya want to take a gander! 

I am an online fanatic and love all things ‘internet’. Having both an online business and an online ministry, for the most part that’s where I’m at – online.

I have a full-time ‘day’ job as Tech Support  for WishList Products. It’s such a huge blessing that I get to work from home. Four years I wrote training articles for the WL Insider membership site. I have been with them since February of 2010.

If you didn’t already know WishList Products created a membership site plugin for WordPress.org. I love working for them a TON! Great people and great products.

Even though it’s a great company…I still strive to set my own hours and to be financially independent. 

I Sure Didn’t Party in 1999 like it was 1999!

I have worked for myself since 1999 and began at a true newbie status. I had never even been on the internet before! Can you believe that?? lol It’s true.

I began by learning HTML, creating a website with FrontPage, adding a shopping cart, and I obtained a few contracts with wholesalers and some drop-shippers.

I sold leather bags, boots, and jackets, Disney and Coca Cola novelty items, which I did for four years. After that I ran a Daycare (Red Balloon) from my home for another four years.

I’ve worked in different multi-level marketing and direct sales companies in the last 15 years. I’ve been with Melaleuca. This is where I was introduced to Tea Tree Oil. Could NOT ingest it though. And Really – that was about the only product I liked with them. 

I was with Avon and Mary Kay… Didn’t fancy Mary Kay whatsoever. Avon was a no money-maker. I love the Odessey perfume, but gave it up due to the constant throat irritation. 

I was then with Jerky Direct. Now I loved this little business at first. It’s important to me to have tangible products that I believe in and a good income source with residual income. THEN the jerky started coming to our door moldy. I gave it a few months. Constant moldy jerky was enough for me. (* I think they fixed the issue. Don’t hold it against them. Things happen. 🙂 )

That’s just me. I need something I can believe in.

In 2012 I began a very purposeful search for Peppermint oil. Something I could ingest. I tried this and I tried that. Something from Amazon. Something from our local health food store, something from our local grocery store. Nothing was any good. I was feeling pretty defeated.

Then I found two companies that produced ingestible essential oils. An acquaintance friend was with one of the companies. I had a bad feeling about it, but I joined under her. I stayed with them for a year. Six months in I started praying about leaving. I felt so bad. I didn’t want to leave, but the business practices and the products just were not working for me at all. 

So – after six months of praying I left. I left my commissions and my down-line. I started completely over with Young Living. It has been so worth it! The essential oils and the supplements are potent. My body shows me they are working in my system. 

I feel better now than I have in about seven years. I am still working on slimming down, but at least now I have the energy and body strength to get MOVING and EXERCISING. Plus, now I have the options to support my system and get rid of those sugar WANTS.

It is AWESOME!! 

I’ve learned quite a lot over the years. I look forward in sharing what I’ve learned with you. 

YOU too can live ABOVE the Wellness line and Move towards FREEDOM in your Life!
