Skincare Sunday

In September 2015 I said yes to an incredible opportunity. I didn't necessarily have high hopes, in fact, since then, my reasons for starting have completely changed and evolved, but nonetheless, it was a decision I've never reconsidered. And actually, it's a decision I wish I'd made a lot sooner.

Two year ago I said YES to becoming a consultant with Rodan+Fields. At that time, R+F was the #4 premium skincare company in the US. Today, we are the #1 skincare company in the USA and #1 premium skincare company in all of North America. Last year we became a billion dollar company, a couple months ago expanded in Australia, and currently in the midsts of a three-product launch.

Huge things, y'all. And it's just getting started.

I want to take some time to tell you WHY I joined this company and a little bit about R+F - then, each Sunday I am going to share and highlight our products, give advice, and just talk all things skincare. Now I am not a dermatologist, nor am I a skincare expert, but I use and sell products that work and are worth selling. And if you have skin, you're probably going to want to read these posts. Just sayin'.


Why Did I Join R+F? 

In the Spring of 2015, we brought home our micro-premie, miracle baby. Since she was so premature and had a compromised immune system, as well as weak lungs, my husband and I made the decision that I would quit my job as a home health speech therapist and stay home with our daughter. It was too much of a risk to put her in daycare. I was thrilled that I was going to be able to stay home as it was something I wanted to do even before we considered starting a family. However, after a few months of being home and getting into our new routine, I realized that I really missed working. I missed the interactions and socializations that came with a career; I missed contributing financially to our family. While I knew going back to work, even part time or PRN, wasn't an option; I also knew that there were work-from-home options - so I began looking into the world of direct selling.

I did my own research into different direct selling companies and opportunities. I considered the brands, products, business models, the consumers, and overall sustainability (for both the company and myself). Inevitably, R+F won my heart and I jumped all in.

Here's what made sense to me as far as choosing Rodan+Fields and the skincare industry:
  • Everyone has skin, right? Everyone that has skin that's aging. Everyone is a potential customer. 
  • Skin also happens to be the largest organ we have. 
  • R+F's direct selling model was the best as there are NO required parties, NO inventory, and NO paperwork. 
  • Residual income. Anyone who buys skincare products will run out and need to buy again, right?
  • The business is completely virtual - I can work at home, on the go, on vacation, and even if I move. This biz goes wherever I go.
  • R+F is currently the fastest growing skincare company in the US and Canada. 
  • We are currently only in the US, Canada, and Australia. So much potential growth in the future.
  • The products have been created by world-renowned dermatologists (remember Proactiv? These are the same doctors that conquered the global acne market - they owned 86% of the WORLD market with Proactiv. And I know they will do it again with R+F and I want a piece of that pie).
  • All of the products offered are clinically proven. R+F is all about results, results, results!
  • There is no minimum or maximum you can or have to make with this business. 
  • I'm in business for myself, but not by myself. 

So in a nutshell - the business model appealed to me, the dermatological-grade products impressed me, and the opportunity to really build something that could be life changing made me say yes

It didn't take long for me to start bringing in a monthly income that made my husband (our sole provider) say Wow! yeah, keep doing that! And so far on this journey, I have made some incredible friends and business partners - as well as helped others become confident in their own skin.  And I'm just getting started.

I've truly fallen in love with this company and the products and I think everyone deserves to hear about the products as well as the opportunity and so that's why I've decided to share here every Sunday!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it. Yangon serviced office
