This is a guest post by Kara Rice in our work-at-home business series, if you run a direct sales company and would like to be featured in a guest post as well then send me an emailI have always wanted to be my own boss. I have a Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy and have been working in that position for over 10 years and through two children. I am passionate about being a career woman but after having a son with special needs it changed my heart. I knew that with the rise of social commerce there was a way to benefit with an on-line business. With a friend, we created an on-line fitness business. It received rave reviews from friends & colleagues, though our sales did not show the excitement. I spent several hours away from my family to build the business without pay. I quickly realized that I did not have more time or freedom from owning my own business, what I had was another J.O.B. In September 2014 I had a major decision to make. My nanny of two years told me she was moving. Two months earlier I had begun using a new anti-aging skin care line called Rodan + Fields. The same Dermatologists that made Proactiv created the products. I did my research on the company and jumped in head first.
The world-renowned Dermatologists, Dr. Katie Rodan + Dr. Kathy Fields created a brand after their namesake for the major skin concerns (wrinkles, age spots, sensitive skin & adult acne). The products were in top department stores in the early 2000s and named the #1 clinical grade brand in Nordstroms. Yet the Doctors quickly realized that purchases were made based on word-of-mouth, rather than the sales expertise of the department store employee. So they pulled their products from the shelves in late 2007, restructured their business model and launched into direct sales in January 2009.Rodan + Fields is a relatively young company in direct sales and the products are sold in the US & Canada, on our way to global expansion. The Doctors hold a strong track record of creating amazing products that work. Proactiv is a multi-billion dollar product, and over 80% of the acne market are users of Proactiv. The anti-aging market is even larger than the acne market ($3 Billion dollar market). You too can benefit from their expertise by leveraging a proven business model with unique, clinical grade products. In 2014, Rodan + Fields was ranked the #4 skin care brand (in sales) in the U.S.A behind Clinique, Lancome & Estee Lauder – brands that have been around for decades. We are also the fastest growing skincare line the past two years. The Doctors are changing the face of direct sales. Rather than going to your customer, you own a virtual franchise and everything can be done on-line. The reasons why Rodan + Fields is the best direct sales company include:
• NO home parties
• NO inventory
• Products are a tax write-off
• Low entry point
• Reputable Dermatologists created the product
• Products come with a 60-day money back guarantee
• Nurse on-call for skin care questions
• Personal websites with a Solution Tool for product recommendation
• Support from teammates near and far
• TONS of growth potential (only in U.S. & Canada so far)
