1. I wanted to improve my own skin (& my skin has improved immensely with consistent use of the products for the past 4 years since I became a Consultant).
2. Brand Recognition: The product line is created by Dr.Katie Rodan + Dr.Kathy Fields, the Board Certified Cosmetic Dermatologists who created Proactiv and Proactiv+.
3. I wanted my products cheaper (I get a 25% discount as a Consultant).
4. I wanted a tax write off; I can pay Uncle Sam or invest money into a business and my start up costs for the products are a tax write off.
5. I wanted to be CEO of my own company without a Bricks and Mortar operation. Someday when I retire from my day job, I can run my business from a tropical island!
6.The start up costs for this business is less than $1000! Your options of becoming a consultant are with the purchase of a $395, $695 or $995 business kit. Who can start their own business that cheaply and sample all the products and still write it off?
7. Products are clinically proven by third party Dermatologists with excellent outcome results of each regimen.
8. R+F is currently the #1 premium grade skin care line in the USA. They have moved into the #1 spot over premium grade skin care lines of Clinique, Estee Lauder & Lancome and those companies have been in business for years.
9. R+F Umblemish Regimen for adult acne is the #1 Premium Acne brand in the USA (R + F Unblemish recently surpassed Clinique).
10. No inventory is required, all sales can be done on line. I do like to explain up front that for active Consultants to earn a commission, a CRP (Consultant Replenish Program) is necessary to order monthly, which is essentially $100 worth of products, but it is easy to fill as many of my customers do not want to order on line. I order for them and also I order the products that I myself or my extended family needs replenished. I also give these products as gifts, and they are much appreciated!
11. No parties required (although I personally like to have EVENTS with wine and cheese & conversation. I also do personal complimentary consultations; it's how you choose to run it-you are your own Boss). The company does suggest at least one BBL, which is called the BIG BUSINESS LAUNCH as any new business would have an grand opening.
12. I can work anywhere with WIFI on my phone or laptop
13. R + F offers a 60 day $ money back guarantee even if Empty Bottles
14. Behind the scenes, there is a PULSE turn key Infrastructure which handles my e-commerce website (which you can choose to pay for or not--it's up to you and costs $24.95/month and counts toward your CRP). The PULSE site handles payment, processing, shipping, inventory, and includes a communication corner with templates for advertising and a Business Library with all sorts of helpful info (I am not the most computer savy, but the PULSE site they provide for your unlimited use is very easy to understand---even for me!)
15. R + F boasts a less than 2% Return rate--because the products work!
16. Skin care is a consumable product, which means people use it and re-order.
17. Anti-aging sales are a 3.9 plus billion market in North America.
18. Free training daily or weekly via video/audio conference calls you can do in your own home and on your own time when you have time.
19. Sales for this company went from $3 million to 0ne billion in 10 years!
20. The Growth rate of R + F is over 106.5% per year for the past 5 years in a row--yep, we are doing something right! The upward growth curve is steep!
21. Products are currently distributed in US, Canada, and Australia (not yet global). To put this in perspective, Proactiv is in 181 countries and it is a 9 Billion dollar company and owns 86% of the acne market. The skin care line is sure to follow.
22. The company continues to make new and innovative patented products like LASHBOOST and Active Hydration Serum.
23.The products are recognized by Oprah, Ellen Degeneres, beauty editors of Allure, Vogue, Bazaar, The Today Show, Forbes and the list goes on and on.
24. Corporate Headquarters has a dedicated staff of Derm Nurses/trained Product Specialist to answer questions.
25. Rodan and Fields Skin care line was the Winner of the 2013 Gold Stevie Award for Consumer Products( to put this in perspective, Apple won this same award for the iphone). It's a big honor.
26. Harvard Business School deemed this business a cutting edge opportunity.
27. This is my retirement (from my Day job) plan because I am the type of person who needs to stay busy, mentally stimulated and challenged. And it is fun work! I do LOVE it!
28. You can earn trips and most recently there are programs to earn a Mercedes Benz....notice this is at the bottom of my list, but for some people, this is a very big motivator. Actually, when I was in high school, I wanted to own a Mercedes one day! (PS I drive a Kia Soul....and I am not so enamored by cars or car payments as I have "matured.")
29. This company and both Doctors Rodan + Fields are changing skin and lives. They not only have helped millions improve their skin and self-esteem, they are also helping people find financial freedom. That is very gratifying to help others in both of these ways!
30. It is primarily a company women join and it is very empowering. As Women, we are empowering to other women. Also men and couples have become very successful as well as very young college students are doing the biz. The business plan takes work and it is 3 to 5 year business plan. Like anything in life, to make it, you have to work hard--it will not be served to you on a silver platter. I am still working it and have a long way to go--you go at your own pace.
31. You make great friends and become better friends with old friends who join you. I have done a lot of personal self development since I started this business! I Love my Team Younger You and my Sponsor and her Team Bio. I would love for you to join my Team!
32. I want to give back. It is my belief that "in giving, you receive." I plan to increase my annual donations to causes that are near and dear to me; one of my favorite charities is Children's Craniofacial Association. And I would like to continue to donate money from my business close to home to the Community Foundation here in Warren County on behalf of the Hayden Salapek Football Lineman Scholarship in memory of Hayden whom our family loved very much.
The History of Rodan and Fields Skin Care line:
In 2002, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields initially launched their premium grade anti-aging skin care line in high end department stores like Nordstrom's. They were competing against many premium skin care products that had been around for 70 plus years. Despite that, the sales did fairly well, but the Doctors felt it should be doing better. The Doctors did a market analysis study and found out that the way people were finding out about their new skin line was by a recommendation of a friend or relative. With that information and knowing the newly found power of e-commerce in the early 2000's that was occurring, their financial advisers recommended that they use the direct marketing model to sell this line of premium skin care. The Doctors gulped, but the Corporate experts convinced the Doctors that direct sales via independent consultants was a viable business model. Thus, in 2008, they made the bold move and pulled the products off the shelves of the high end department stores! And here we are today in 2019, with a company that has increased sales via this model from 3 million dollar in sales to One billion dollar in sales in 10 years and have become the #1 Skin care line in the USA with plans to expand the globe even more!
