Ladies, it's a game changer!
Quick: when someone says direct sales, what do you think? These are the things that come to my mind: sleazy, ponzi scheme, rip-off. The list of degrading terms could go on and on.
And yet, today, I find myself aligned with a direct sales company, Rodan + Fields.
Because this company is different. It is a company with a mission to change people's lives, by transforming skincare as we know it, and providing its consultants with the opportunity to find financial success working on their own time, on their own terms.
And it's not a bunch of mumbo jumbo.
In 2013 Rodan + Fields received the Vision for Tomorrow Award from the Direct Selling Association. It won the Gold Stevie Award: Company of the Year Consumer Products in the 2013 American Business Awards. The company's cutting edge products have been featured on the Today Show and Dr. Oz's blog. They've been praised in Oprah Magazine, Women's Health, Allure, and countless other beauty magazines. The company has received more media attention than all the other Direct Sales companies combined.
And this business model enables me to achieve an objective I am desperate to keep: priceless flexibility, so I can greet my children when they step off the school bus.
I'm not going to lie: I wanted, more than anything, to be paid to write. But corporate America has given me the cold shoulder, and I have too much energy, too much to share, to keep pounding my head against a wall. I've taken a leap in another direction, and I'm excited to see where it will take me.
As they say, if you can't find a job, make one.
