It's a strange thing to build a business and then decide you want to build another. In fact, I didn't realize that was what I agreed to when I pulled the trigger on becoming a Rodan + Fields Independent Consultant. I don't really remember what I was thinking except that there's a little voice inside my head repeating "What do you have to lose?". The answer is nothing.
I am a consumer of Rodan + Fields. It was a skeptical and emotional road that led me to even try the products. I didn't trust it. I didn't want to waste time and money. How could it really work? But nothing I was using was working either and those products didn't have 60 day money back promises backed by their companies. And somehow the girl at the department store counter (who subsequently makes a commission off my designer skin care purchases) is a trustworthy expert on my skin care needs even though she has failed me so many times before?
After months of deliberation I got over it and tried Redefine. I took before photos like they suggested, and went on with it. It wasn't too long before I started to see changes, but over time I took those changes for granted and decided to get lazy skipping a step here or there, adding a faster to use wash from time to time and my results started to unravel and that's when I really understood how hard this product was working for me.
Fast forward through a series on inconsequential events, I am now on a mission to start my own business helping people discover their best skin. To be fair, I am not totally altruistic in my motivation. I obviously want this to be income generating and profitable for my family. I also want to be home to raise my family, support my husband who works and is also trying to get his PhD. I have to wear a lot of hats and the pressure mounts: Be a good wife, mother, friend, daughter. Be home to make food, set playdates, keep the home in order, laundry, grocery shopping, pay the bills on time. Be healthy, active, positive, fun, brave, silly, and beautiful. "Don't stress" they say. "Be present" they say. "Enjoy the moment" they say. Oh and in my free time, try to make some money. I mean, seriously?
But I do it. And I do it well (mostly). I am hard on myself and don't give credit where it's due. I focus on what I miss instead of celebrating the millions of things that I do so seamlessly that other people don't even realize I did it. I am impressive. But, does it have to be so hard? Maybe not. Maybe that's the wisdom you gain from living through and surviving something. If I have a blog in 20 years I will do a follow up post on that.
So, here I am in the throws of a new venture in hopes that I can help people in a few ways.
The first is on the consumer side. If you have skin problems or concerns, talk to me. I have answers and if I don't know something I won't stop until I figure it out. I know how disappointing this process can be and promise to remember that when we figure out a course of action. Always remember you have a 60 day trial with any product and you will get your money back if you are unhappy in any way.
If you are looking to start your own Rodan + Fields business, talk to me. I have spent the better part of the last five years perfecting marketing and digital marketing strategies. What feels overwhelming and impossible is actually an opportunity to grow. When you think about this, it's likely that you have doubt about your abilities. This is one of those spaces where you are focusing on what isn't instead of what is. I will work with you to find your strengths and teach you how to use to connect authentically. In the beginning I can give you tips and strategies that are fool proof and tested by me. You have my support and I am available to you. You will not be alone, you will be part of a team. The only requirement is that you believe in the products (piece of cake) and yourself (some yoga and TLC required).
So now that you've suffered through all of that, here's the scoop! I am giving away a Skin Care Regimen of choice (Redefine, Soothe, Unblemish, or Reverse basic kit) and an Essentials Care item (Lip Care, Sunless Foaming Tanner, Sunscreen, or Moisturizer) to one lucky winner and I want you to win!
