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!
