January 1st, 2012 I made a decision to step outside my comfort zone and make a positive change towards my future. I knew I couldn’t keep doing the same things I’d always done and expect a different outcome. It was time for me to take a leap of faith. That day and every day since I’ve had a mission. A mission to find people that were hungry for change just as I and build something extraordinary together. I cannot believe three years have already gone by since I started my journey with Rodan + Fields. I must say that I could not be prouder of all the accomplishments it has afforded me and my aspiring team. This past year I’ve seen several of my business partners reach levels of success they only dreamed of. In fact three of my team received the honor of being a Lexus Car Achiever and received their new, shiny Lexus car for their efforts and success in their businesses. Our momentum is igniting and the best part is we’re just beginning. For the entrepreneurial minded we are a dream team, a name, a brand, an identity. Our mission of changing skin and changing lives has become part of who I am and what I stand for.
I often wonder if Drs. Rodan and Fields ever really knew that they would be such a primary force of a global skincare revolution when they created Proactiv Solution twenty years ago? My answer is YES! They never doubted that they were meant to change the way we think about treating acne. Today their new company holds even more promise as it addresses aging, sensitive skin, dull skin and acne (90% of the world’s skin problems). The business model they have chosen will prove bigger, better and touch even more lives. The key to their business ideology is what I have always thought as important — giving people the power to share and stay connected, empowering people to build their own future themselves on their terms. While some doubted that building a business through connecting was actually viable, we are building. While others are doubting that this would be sustainable business model, we are experiencing triple digit growth increases and that translates into big business. Simply put, we are a community of business owners that care more about using the power of connectivity and word of mouth referrals than anyone else. That won’t change.
Today, one-third of the world’s population has access to the internet. In the next decade, we will have the opportunity to connect the other two-thirds. Building a business through the internet and social networks is the wave of the future and I can tell you first hand it gives you the power of reaching the world with a click of a mouse. There are no limits. I have shared moments, experiences, answered questions and it has enabled me to reach you and communicate opportunities that can change your life.
I have spent the last few months pouring my heart into this new business and I truly want my readers to understand that Rodan + Fields is all about giving back to the community and their consultants. Last month we raised over $30,000 for buildOn, Inc., to build a school for students in need. This month we have partnered with ModaVive to do a dress drive where 60% of the proceeds will be donated to the Prescription for Change Foundation and another 10% are donated to the buyer’s choice. Being part of a company that cares so much about giving back to others is why I work as hard as I do. I am having so much fun helping others realize their potential. By changing people’s skin, we are indirectly changing their lives. Click here for some incredible success stories!
So three years in and so much progress! I see the next three years building on the first three. So many exciting things on the horizon. We are launching on January 5, 2015 a “game changing” product…Redefine Acute Care, the first alternative to Botox that is non-invasive way to fill a wrinkle. The buzz alone around this product indicates a huge leap in our business.
I feel a deep responsibility to make the most of my time here and serve you the best I can. My business has circled around from just being about what I want to helping others find theirs. I’m looking for 2-3 smart, courageous people to join me as business partners in January. The selected few will be put in a specialized training group that will offer support from the top 4 leaders of the company. You will be personally mentored by me and given every tool needed for complete success. If you have 10 hours a week to dedicate to building an extraordinary future, have a determined attitude and are hungry for change then you may be the person I am looking for. Email me at email@example.com to explore the opportunity and see if it is a fit for you.

Although no one can go back in time and make a complete brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
