A few thoughts.
I love to talk. Being vulnerable helps me heal. Sharing is caring after all, right?
This trip started in Boston. Where I live currently. BUT first..after much unexpected personal success and growth, I made a big move. Months ago I developed this crazy idea that I wanted to see incredible growth in my team...how was it going to happen??? With tons of faith, love, and sharing skincare...so I collaborated with my beautiful team and WE made a plan...little did I know, this trip would forever change my heart.
I've traveled a lot in the past year. Helping and building my team; before this Austin gig in fact. ...New Zeland, Tahiti, Ethiopia (yes Africa), Mexico, and all over the US...I love it, travel fills my cup. Each trip holds specials memories and moments in my heart. Most of these trips are with my closet people. And they always bring me closer to God and strengthen my soul. My hubby didn't come with me to Austin, and although I missed him terribly, I'm better for this trip. All of it.
Austin marked the location of our company wide R+F convention!!! Having missed last year due to other obligations in Denver, I was pumped to get there!!! A week with My girls, fun, learning, dancing, dresses, the Doctors AND much more!!! How exciting right!?! Yes, it delivered in every way!!
First, I stopped in TN to visit family, and to join a few of my team members and friends for what we call Biz Opps. I've found in my personal business "parties" don't suit me. So I don't do them, I believe in working your strengths and collaborating on your weaknesses. I like the honest hands off approach of just sharing and helping who wants to be helped...HOWEVER, I love the idea of gathering some friends for coffee or drinks and talking beauty and products!!
I am packaged with a spirit of helping others in the same way I did for a decade as a full time Nurse. Once a Nurse always a Nurse, but I wanted fun, passion, more...SO, at 29 I followed my heart and by 30 I no longer had to punch anyone's clock!! I still hold a per deim spot at a local hospital, BUT I go when I choose. The best part about my career change is that I am my own boss. I work my biz BUT only on my terms. My team is incredible and I LOVE watching them build their dreams!!! We have fun and we get paid without the pressure of "selling" anyone!!! How is that? Because we have Premium skincare that works and we simply have to share it. Our Doctors created a previous billiondollar brand (ProActiv) and they ARE doing it again with anti aging. To some this matters very little and I totally respect that. This business isn't for everyone, but I sure am thankful for all the incredible people God has blessed me with through this vehicle for change and financial freedom!
Speaking of blessings...as I hold it together right now...I must share with you that the ladies who attended convention with me are forever friends. We DO life together, and we do it well. We laughed, cried, reached for the stars, and truly empowered one another. In my personal life I've struggled with finding my place and believing in myself...I just couldn't ever quite get close enough in fear of many things. However, in the last year and a half I've made life long "sister" friends. This includes people outside my R+F team as well, and I'm truly blessed for the beautiful souls I walk hand in hand with. I'm forever grateful.
So, Austin provided delicious Tex Mex and margs...as well as training and excitement that couldn't be recreated if we tried, and believe me next year is VEGAS, so we will try.
I attended this event with a pretty high title, I was awarded perks I've never seen in any other job!!! But the BEST part is being empowered by the kindest, vivacious people I've ever known...this includes our Doctors, The corporate R+F dream team, my teammates, and each beautiful heart that took on Austin with fierceness!! We all left better. We witnessed the hearts of our company and I couldn't be more proud to represent Rodan+Fields in their entirety. I'm dreaming bigger, living more, and I'd love to share this gift with you and your family!
#teamFearless because FEAR has no place in my happiness, business, or gratefulness. Thank you for tuning in!
