Do you LOVE what you’re doing for a living? Are you happy where you work? Are you worried about your job?
I’ll be honest, it’s taken me a while and a few tries with different things to find what I TRULY love to do. It keeps me up at night with my brain churning, it fires me up and I am so passionate about it.
A few years ago I realized how much I love being an entrepreneur when I started my photography studio – you get to own your own business, make your own hours, be your own boss. You get to control your own destiny. Yet I realized over a few years that owning a photography studio wasn’t my lifelong passion, so when our dear friends told David and I about Rodan + Fields, David instantly knew. When he was growing up his family had been involved in direct sales and he definitely understood the opportunity of Rodan + Fields. He got it.
I, on the other hand, knew NOTHING about direct sales (other than a few of my friends did it) but what I did know is that if I was going to join a company there were several things that were important to me: the brand had to be credible and successful, there had to be no inventory and the company had to see technology as invaluable.
Credible and Successful. Doctors Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields were called a ‘Dermatological Dream Team’ by Women’s Health magazine because they are! They created the world’s #1 acne solution called Proactiv® and they are on target to create another billion dollar company with Rodan + Fields. I knew that I wanted to partner with the biggest names in skincare, and they get more unpaid press coverage than all other direct sales companies combined.
No inventory. One thing that definitely didn’t get me fired up was thinking about stocking product or going to the post office regularly, so making sure that I didn’t have to do those two things was really important to me. Rodan + Fields has setup our company and consultants for success. They make doing my job easy! A customer orders from my website and then they ship it directly to my customer’s door! I love that and my customers do too!
Technology. We live in a digitally connected world and I knew that I wanted a job that wouldn’t tie us down to a geographic location – one that I could build online wherever we lived. With Rodan + Fields I can do just that! Rodan + Fields has all the latest technology utilized so that we have business-building potential wherever we go! iPad apps for customers to see what the Doctors recommend for their skin concerns, iPhone apps to help me stay on top of my business, digital magalog for customer’s to flip through – there really isn’t anything that they haven’t thought of!
These are just a few of the many, many reasons I love Rodan + Fields and the social selling business model. I have finally found something that I’m passionate about – that I see myself doing now, when we have kids, in twenty years and for the rest of my life. I am so blessed to have found something that I can do AROUND my current lifestyle.
Are you satisfied with what you’re doing now? If not, I would love for you to contact me to learn how you can be on your way to working your dream job too!
