You know sometimes when you say “I’ll never do __________” and then eventually God opens up a door and that never turns into something you do get involved in? Ever happened to you? Mine was direct sales. EEK! The two words that either people love or despise. I was always supportive for other people that decided to jump in and often times would try out their product to be supportive, but direct sales wasn’t for me. No, definitely not for me.
After about 3 months of using Rodan + Fields, the friend I was buying it from suggested I join her in business. I remember thinking that there was no way I could sell something to my friends and family. No way that I could have a business of my own and enjoy it. No way that I could make new friends and reconnect with old friends. No way, direct sales was not for me.
Have you thought the same way before? Scared of failing? Or scared of what others might think?
Three years ago today I jumped in and joined my friend’s Rodan + Fields team. I knew nothing about skincare. I knew nothing about direct sales. I knew nothing about how to run my own business.
General jist…I was clueless.
I did know a few things though. I knew that I had 60 days to figure it out if it worked for me or not. I knew that I couldn’t know until I tried and jumped in and took a risk. And I knew that Dr. Rodan + Dr. Fields were the doctors that created Proactiv and that after using their products for 6 months (by the time I became a Consultant) I knew that the products worked.
Today marks my third anniversary as a Rodan + Fields Consultant…over 10% of my entire life. I am so thankful for this business and this opportunity. If you have questions or want to change up your life, I’d love to help and answer any questions.
