In 2015 I was pulling double duty, working as the events coordinator for a popular local radio station in Topeka, Ks as well as running my own wedding consulting business. Around this time I was thinking about taking my wedding business to the next level and making it my full-time job. I was ready to be my own boss.
A month or so before taking the leap and quitting my job at the radio station, I was at a networking event and was approached by a woman who introduced me to Rodan & Fields. I thought it sounded neat, but I didn’t have time for that. It wasn’t in my plan. I had worked very hard to create a brand for myself and my business. I was the “Wedding girl”. And I was finally going to pursue my passion and do my dream job full-time! When would I have time for R&F and why would I even want to make time for it?
So, a couple weeks went by and I was getting closer to put in my notice at the radio station I’ll admit, I was scared and that’s why for some reason I just couldn’t stop thinking about some of the things Shala told me about R&F. Something that stuck with me, was that this company was started by the Doctors who created Proactiv. I was an acne girl and I, like many, used Proactiv in high school. The brand recognition and reputation was there. Also, she told me how R&F could be a vehicle for me to earn extra money. I kept thinking that this might be a nice safety net or the backup plan I was looking for.
So, I reached back out and told her I was interested but I had a few concerns. The main concern was I didn’t want to be “THAT GIRL”
I was also already very busy with having to keep track of my brides, by delivering and shipping out their invitations!. I didn’t want to have to worry about doing that with these R&F products! Thankfully R&F had completely changed the direct sales world with their business model. No inventory, no paperwork, no deliveries, and no parties.
I could work this whole business from my cell phone and my customers receive everything at their doorstep from corporate distribution centers. I was officially on board when I found out that we have a 60 day money back guarantee for us and customers.
So with-in the 3 years working both my wedding and Rodan and Fields businesses, I’ve been able to compare the two.
My wedding business is fueled by transactional sales; which means I have to put in the work and time in order to get paid. If I wanted to raise my income I had to spend more time working in front of the computer screen or spend more weekends away from my family at someone else’s wedding!
Rodan + Fields has consumable products that are clinically proven to work. The customer falls in love with our products and they get washed down the drain every night! Which means they eventually re-order.
This business has help me grow personally and financially, I’ve met so many amazing women who want to love you and help you reach your goals! What I love the most is that this business, like my wedding business, allows me to touch so many lives and I love getting to share this with so many people!! 🙂
