I am a wife to an incredible man and a mom to 2 grown sons. I live in Texas, am 64, and started this business in Summer of 2014. In less than 2 years, I built my R+F business to the top 2% of earners in the company, while owning a brick-and-mortar business; a gym franchise. I often worked 50 hours a week, and was getting up at 3:30 am, to run the gym. I only tell you that to let you know that I had many excuses as to why I couldn’t and even shouldn’t build a second business, but I did it anyway!
I am also pretty much the classic introvert with a background in Law enforcement in the SF Bay Area, where I was born and raised. I forged my way in the University of California system by creating a new major for the university and becoming the first (maybe last?) person to graduate from there with a degree in Art and Design. That might sound like a normal degree, but the Davis campus, is a seriously agricultural-based college; cow-tipping is really a thing. And yes, I lived in a DOME in Davis, so I am officially a hippie, or at least was, I suppose. I only share all of this with you to show you I am a prime example of "anyone can do this business".
This business is so much more than skincare and has truly changed my life. I know that sounds dramatic (maybe even corny), but the friendships I have formed as a result of this business, and the tangible way I have been able to change the direction of others' lives are truly priceless to me. What is more important than being able to help a mother stay home with her children (teens need a parent home)? Or to help someone be able to get expensive and necessary medical care? I have many team members who are able to increase their retirement accounts, grow travel and rainy day accounts, and otherwise supplement or even replace their family income.
It's important to me to be a blessing to a hurting world. This business is fully in line with my desire to give resources of my time and finances while supporting causes that are important to my family. My R+F business allows me to volunteer my time, and allows my husband to work at an important and fulfilling job without us having to be concerned with his income or a layoff. No job is secure. We learned over the years, that a back-up plan is smart, and provides an extra layer of security. My R+F business comes without the emotional and financial expense along with the ongoing stress that was constant while I owned my business franchise. I can now work my own schedule and work from my smart phone or laptop anywhere I have Wi-Fi.
If time and money were unlimited, how would you live your life differently? Chances are you have been limiting yourself based on your current financial situation that often has you working way too many hours every week. You are TIRED. Your family deserves more, and there IS a better way!
