Let me tell you a story about my journey of “never in a million years would I do one of those things” to realizing that Network Marketing is absolutely the better way to make a living than an 8-5 job or starting a small business from scratch.
After my divorce I landed on my butt, finding myself without a job and without a steady income. Having been self-employed all of my adult life I knew I didn’t want to land in corporate America so I started looking at businesses to buy. Thus began my search, knowing that the cash flow would have to pay for the debt service of any business that would win my bid.
The list included a music studio,a jingle company, a carriage company, a coffee shop, a health and fitness spa, a nail salon, and a tanning salon. Ranging in price from $120 thousand to $1.2 million. Can you imagine the overhead of brick and mortar and employees not to mention the financial commitment to the bank?
Then along came Rodan+Fields Dermatologists. This is what I found out a little over 4 years ago. A new company founded by the Doctor’s who created Proactiv Acne Solution, with clinically proven products that actually work, a profit potential without a glass ceiling, and programs and training in place to facilitate success. A turn-key business in a box. What the Doctor’s did successfully for acne with their first company, they are now doing for aging and sun-damaged skin with their second company. Successfully. This time around the difference is we can partner with them in their new venture.
Imagine where you would be today had you been able to partner with these giants in the skincare world when they started Proactiv? Imagine if you got to own the Pepsi or Coke distributorship in your city (leverage). Imagine if you were the first to own a McDonald’s in your town (leverage). Imagine if you were the first in your network to own a partnership with R+F (leverage). Imagine all of the possibilities for you.
Rodan+Fields Dermatologists is much like a mini-franchise. A business that you own and that you grow. A business that can open new possibilities for you. Maybe it can help you quit the job you hate. Or maybe make enough extra income for that shameless secret shoe shopping fund. Or maybe go on that Spa Vacation with your girlfriends with your own money to spend so you don’t have to ask your spouse to foot the bill. The possibilities are endless…private school tuition, retire your husband money, vacation money, donation money, pay the bills money so you don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck. Or maybe you want to go for the big gangster money…you name it, you can do it. Forget about the past stereotype...Network Marketing, Direct Selling, MLM, whatever you want to call it, is the business model trend, not of the future, but of the right now!
So what was the big bonus of what I found out that day that I drank the cool-aid? For me it was a no-brainer. After spending countless hours and money doing my due diligence (with accountants and attorneys) with companies that I would have gone nose-deep into debt with, I immediately saw that this company made perfect sense. A turn-key business in a box with all of the systems in place to help me reach higher than I ever have before. The infrastructure is already in place for anyone to step in and be the captain of their own business and their own life.
What if you took 5-15 minutes of your time to take a look at something that could make a big difference in your life. Is it worth it? Is it for you? You tell me. Your life, your game, your decision. Status-quo trading hours for dollars? Or being you own boss?
Never say never. In a million years I would do it all over again!
