I’ve got a special treat for you on the blog today, friends! My friend JennaRae is sharing her story of motherhood, skin care, and an exciting business opportunity! I’ve known JennaRae ever since we moved onto the same dorm floor on the first day of college! She lives in Florida with her husband Josh, who is a Navy pilot, her sweet puppy Chewy, and her precious daughter Claire. JennaRae and I first bonded over hilarious Saturday Night Live videos and working together for Facilities Management in college. It’s been so fun watching her love this journey of motherhood AND her new business!
Thank you Hannah for letting me share my story on Just Bee! 🙂 I have always loved this blog & how it captures real life so I am thankful for the opportunity to “get real” with y’all!
I remember when my daughter was about six months old…she was the best sleeper. I felt like the #1 mom. Then she got her first cold. Thanks to the sniffles she started waking up 5-6 times. All my mama-mojo was gone within two days & the bags under my eyes were proof. My skin looked awful from my lack of sleep. Fast-forward four months. My husband and I bought a house that didn’t have gutters (we live in Florida…we need gutters) and the budget didn’t have room for gutters.
Yes I had always dreamed of being a stay-at-home-mom, but I had no idea what we would have to give up–gutters, apparently. Also the bags under my eyes were still there. Fast-forward AGAIN three more months. All my teacher friends were getting ready for school to start again. I realized I missed teaching (I taught 9th grade before my daughter was born) but that mostly I missed the way I felt when I was teaching– the sense of purpose & drive that I had. Oh and I still had those baggy eyes.
I had no idea what to do. I was a stay-at-home-mom struggling to feel a purpose in what I was doing (so. many. diapers) and we were feeling the financial stress of me being at home–the one thing I had always dreamed of doing was biting us in the butt. And you guessed it…baggy eyes for eternity. I needed a solution!! That solution came in the form of a phone call from a friend & a business opportunity with Rodan+Fields Dermatologists.
Here’s the skinny on this incredible company: Drs Katie Rodan & Kathie Fields are the world renowned dermatologists behind Proactiv— the #1 acne treatment in the world. They changed the game for acne & now with their new company Rodan+Fields they are doing the same for aging skin! Their 4 core skincare lines cover a variety of skin concerns: REDEFINE (for the appearance of lines, pores, and loss of firmness), REVERSE (brown spots/sun spots, discoloration), UNBLEMISH (acne & post-acne marks), and SOOTHE (sensitive, irritated skin & redness). These products give you the same level of care & expertise you would receive at a dermatologist’s office (minus the appointment…and at a much better cost!!). Add to that a 60-day money-back guarantee & excellent customer-service– it’s no wonder Rodan+Fields is one of the top premium skincare brands in the United States!
So the products are obviously awesome…but what does it mean to work for Rodan+Fields? As an Independent Consultant I simply share the business & skincare products with others– by building a business team & helping others have the best skin possible, all on my own time! I do this while staying at home and reading books, coloring pictures, going to the pool, watching “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood”, and changing diapers (among the many other things my 16 month old demands).
Maybe you’re thinking, “well I’m not really passionate about skincare.” Here’s the truth: I’m not passionate about skincare. I didn’t start this business because I felt a calling to bring amazing skincare products to the world. I jumped in because I saw R+F as a way to do the things I want to do– like stay at home with my daughter and buy gutters for our house (not kidding on this one). Personally, I feel called to be a wife & mother. How awesome that I can create a residual income without taking away from the roles I love & feel called to!! The clear, younger-looking skin I have now is just a great bonus. 🙂 The best part about this business is that it really doesn’t matter what you are passionate about— as long as you have something driving you to work hard!!
At the end of the day, this business has been a huge blessing to my family and I believe it can be a blessing to others as well! I’m so glad I got to share my story and introduce you to Rodan + Fields today because Hannah just recently signed up as a consultant!
