For the month of April, I will be offering a free regimen of your choice for anyone who decides to take the leap and join my team. This is a very special deal, so if you haven’t considered starting your own Rodan and Fields success story, then I urge to consider it. Don’t forget about the 60-day money-back-guarantee on your investment! There really isn’t anything to lose in trying the business out for yourself and seeing if it fits. AND, if you do pretty well in those 2 months you could very easily earn a full reimbursement on your business kit! (That is one of our new incentives. I only wish that were around when I signed up!)
And now a special success story of one of the MANY successful Rodan and Fields Consultants. May I introduce to you….
Wake up, brush your teeth, take a shower, get dressed, make breakfast, and go to work. For better or worse, our daily routines become habitual. The familiarity of a schedule may evoke a sense of normalcy or comfort, but sometimes, in the midst of the repetition, we have a moment of clarity. A moment when we realize that something new and exciting is just over the horizon—a new dream, improved quality of life, an opportunity to give back, or a chance to spread joy to others. Melissa Williams lived a happy life with her husband Matthew and their two beautiful daughters, but a small step outside of her comfort zone inspired her to create a life beyond what she had imagined possible.
In 2012, Melissa attended her friend’s Rodan + Fields® event. She was intrigued by the products and decided to try the REVERSE Regimen to reduce the appearance of some brown spots on her face. “I figured there was nothing to lose with the 60-day money back guarantee.” Within a couple of weeks, Melissa was blown away by the amazing results and was excited to try other R+F Regimens as well. She continued to use the products for several months and was excited to spread the word about her experience until her husband said, “You tell everyone about R+F anyway, why not become a Consultant and do it as a business?”
The idea made sense, but Melissa still felt unsure; her background was in physical therapy, not in sales. But because she loved the products so much and wanted to share them with even more people, she enrolled as an Independent Consultant that November. “You should love your skin; I really believe that. When you help someone feel better about their skin, you are triggering a domino effect of positive events in his or her life. As their confidence goes up, they become more open to trying new things, and this leads to personal growth.”
A few years prior to joining R+F, Melissa left her physical therapy position to be a stay at home mother. R+F was a perfect fit for her as it allowed her the flexibility to be present for her family. She decided she never wanted to return to a job that didn’t provide that luxury. “When this opportunity came along, I realized that I could balance work with my home life. I’ve also found that my business fulfills me in ways similar to my physical therapy work, which I loved. I can still touch people in a meaningful way. When you offer someone the ability to start a business, you set them on a course to potentially achieve whatever their goals are.”
A shift in perspective
In the beginning, Melissa focused mostly on sharing the products, and she was surprised at how much it connected her with others. “I’ve always appreciated great customer service, and I really enjoy developing a rapport with people. It’s a great way to reconnect with old friends and also make new ones.”
In 2014, Melissa had a moment of clarity and inspiration as she watched her friend develop a thriving business, despite a busy lifestyle. Why couldn’t she accomplish the same? “My journey up to that point had been great. But I suddenly realized that I could dream bigger and achieve more.” Melissa set her sights on earning the Lead the Way Milestone Five trip to San Francisco for her and her husband, Matthew. “As an orthopedic surgeon, he works long hours. I wanted to give him that trip as a gift–a vacation that I earned from growing my business, one that Matthew didn’t have to work for.”
With her goals solidified, Melissa shifted her focus and set out to build her team. “I knew then what I wanted out of my business; it was a vehicle for creating quality time with my family.” Each goal she reached, no matter how big or small, energized Melissa and encouraged her to achieve even more. “I kept thinking, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ It’s so important to recognize every achievement, especially on a team, because even the little things matter. There are no shortcuts to success.”
A renewed conviction
Melissa earned that trip and, this past November, she and Matthew went to San Francisco. While there, he was able to witness the full potential of the business opportunity for himself and had his own “a-ha” moment. A month later, Matthew joined Melissa’s team. “Having him as a partner has really broadened our network, and we love doing things together.” They look forward to their business creating more time freedom for their family and, with the addition of their R+F income, Matthew could reduce his hours at work. “R+F has given us a way to enhance our quality of life and spend more time together as a family.”
Melissa has always been open to trying new things and ready to take on new challenges, but she never expected the overall positivity her business has brought into her life. “I never thought I’d be able to balance working from home, working with my husband, and having complete flexibility around our kids’ schedules. I have the ability to do everything.”
Melissa’s business is even helping her overcome her fear of public speaking. This past year, she was asked to speak at a Convention about PC management, and she was able to do it thanks to the training and support she received from R+F. “I was humbled to be asked, but it was a big thing for me to do. I have always shied away from public speaking and, previously, that fear dictated a lot of the decisions I made. When I got up there and spoke in front of hundreds of people, I felt so good about myself. It was so gratifying to overcome that fear.”
Sharing the vision
Melissa’s business has reinforced her belief that bringing joy to others is one of life’s most important and rewarding jobs. “In every encounter you have, it’s so important to leave a positive mark. The way everyone in the R+F community builds each other up and celebrates each other’s successes is so inspiring. When you have people believing in you, it motivates you to believe in yourself even more.”
Always striving to lead by example and encourage others to give their best effort, Melissa is working to pay it forward. She wants to continue sharing her business in the hope that others will see the vision for themselves. “You can’t be afraid of failure; you should only be afraid of not trying. No one is perfect, and there will be hiccups along the way, but if you are positive and maintain that clear vision of what you want, nothing can stop you from achieving it.”
