Today, I am channeling Dr. Seuss, and his famous poem, Oh, The Places You Will Go.
“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
Any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”Way back in February of 2016, I decided to try a new skincare regimen. I had tried many, many other products, so I was not expecting to see results. In fact, I wouldn’t even order as a customer, but instead had my friend place the order for me. Low and behold I fell in love with the products! On May 23rd, 2016, I became a consultant with Rodan + Fields so that I could buy the products at the best price possible. (I am always looking for a sale or a good deal) I had no intention of selling the products because I was already working full time, starting a blog, and I am naturally shy when it comes to things like this. HOWEVER, you gurls started asking questions. “Have you changed the lighting on your pictures?” “Did you change makeup?” “You are glowing, what are you doing differently?” I am a true blonde (my hairdresser helps with this now) because it took me two weeks to figure out why readers kept asking me those questions over and over. Finally, I had a light bulb moment when I realized that I had started a new skincare routine!!! You gurls could “see” the results of the products that I was using!!! Wow! I am three years older, but I look much younger now!!! When I realized that I shared everything on my blog (husband, grandkids, weight, and size) but that I wasn’t sharing about the products that were helping me to age backward, I was ashamed at how selfish that I had been. I am thrilled to say that I have hundreds of happy ladies who are all enjoying these products. I just recently got an email from my earliest customer. Here is what she wrote to me, “I have been using Roden and Fields for almost three years. I have seen such a great improvement in my skin’s texture and keeping those nasty wrinkles away. I have friends that I haven’t seen in years comment on how young I still look. I included a picture of my favorite products that I will not live without. I have a great consultant as well that makes you feel like a superstar and she is a superstar in my book. I highly recommend their products if you have not tried them. If nothing else try the new foundation. You will love it ♥️”
My favorite story is of my skeptical friend. She started mentioning R+F to me around October of 2017, and it took her until September of 2018 before she FINALLY decided to try the products. Guess who fell in love with the products??? Guess who decided to become an R+F consultant last month??? 😝 ❤️️I figured that if I was going to be a representative of this brand, I needed to do find out a little about the brand. This is where I got the biggest shock…I had just partnered with two very famous dermatologists, the creators of Proactiv Acne Solutions. I had no idea, I only knew the products worked and that I wanted to keep using them. Joe encouraged me to attend an R+F Convention that was held in Las Vegas in October of 2016. I am so far out of my comfort zone in the picture above, you can’t even begin to imagine. I flew across the country and I hate to fly. I roomed with 6 other women that I had never met and who were all in their 30’s, and 1 lady who I was only semi-acquaintances with at the time. I am on the 16th floor out on the balcony, and I hate heights. I attended parties where I didn’t know anyone. And, most of the ladies who attended the convention were much younger than me. And, I had a GREAT time!!! I embraced this growing stage of my life. I loved the travel and the meeting of new friends. I grew in confidence and I loved that I was helping women feel better about themselves. In December of 2016, I earned my very first R+F gift. It was a leather key chain and I was hooked! I was growing as a person, I was making lots of new friends, I was helping others, I was getting a nice paycheck, and I was getting gifts also! What was there not to like??? The key chain might not have been a BIG gift, but it planted a seed that I could achieve more if I really tried. Joe says that I am Pocahontas and that I can be motivated by trinkets. I say, “yep, bring them on!” Then, something crazy happened, I had people join me in the business. I all at once became a leader, even though I had no idea what I was doing. That is the beauty of this entire journey, I never knew where this was going to take me, but I knew that it had been dumped in my lap for a reason. Off our little team went to Charleston, SC where we had a great time. Once again, I met new people that I had never met before, and we are now close friends! The new year, 2017, started off great! I was treated to a team retreat at the lake home of the ex-head coach of Virginia Tech, Frank Beamer. His daughter is an R+F consultant, and she hosted the retreat.
Plus, we were treated to a spa day at the Ritz-Carlton hotel while we were there.
Once again, I met a new bunch of ladies who were all younger than me, and I had a blast!!! Please, don’t let fear and insecurities hold you back from experiencing all that life has to offer. In April 2017, I got to do something that I had never had the opportunity to do before. “I” got to take “Joe” on a beautiful vacation to Cancun Mexico because of one of those “trinkets” that I earned.
We found out that Joe could be still for more than 10 minutes after all. Lol! He took a liking to the life of leisure, and we ended up extending our stay for a week longer than expected. Lol!
In September, my “trinket” was a trip to the convention in New Orleans where I was honored by getting to walk the stage. WOW! How did this happen to me??? I got to attend a special meeting for top leaders in the company and my picture was on the wall with others who achieved this milestone. And, there were a few more “extras” just to make sure that I was feeling spoiled enough. Lol! We had an amazing time in the Big Easy, even if they don’t believe in taking the heads off of the shrimp before they serve you. Haha! This year, in April, I was once again able to treat Joe with an amazing vacation to Los Cabos, Mexico with one of my earned “trinkets.”
Isn’t he handsome? And, I was once again out of my comfort zone when I was asked to participate in a video talking about the upcoming convention that will be held in Nashville this September. I didn’t know that these clicker things were real. lol! And, after I got back from Mexico, I was off to Rosemary Beach, Florida for a team training and retreat. I was especially excited about this trip since my daughter also attended for the first time. She is back from living in Alaska, so I hope that this will not be the last of our mother/daughter R+F trips. I thought that R+F got me out of my comfort zone, but my daughter pushed me even further when she found this cold water excursion for all of us to go on while we were in Florida. We all had such a great time that it is now going to be a yearly event on the trip. The truth is, none of us was a specialist in skincare. Most of us started with R+F for the products and the business side just evolved. I am so happy that I am surrounded by this tribe of women who want more from life and who are willing to help others achieve more also. Channel your inner Dr. Seuss and: KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
“So…Be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray Or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea, You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So…get on your way!”
