The Gleeful Gourmand: Rodan + Fields

Rodan + Fields

I became an Independent Consultant for the premium skincare company, Rodan + Fields, in July of 2015. At the time, I wasn't looking to change my skin so much as looking for a business opportunity that would allow me the flexibility of working from home, managing my own hours, the freedom to write and blog when I wanted to, and the ability to be available for my kids.

That's a lot to ask from any company, but that's precisely what Rodan + Fields' aim is: financial freedom for women and men across the U.S. (and now Canada and Australia, too!) while providing the type of skincare that was previously only achieved by going to the Dermatologist's office.

Doctors Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields are the creators of Proactiv, and still own their highly successful dermatology practices in California. The Rodan + Fields line is their legacy business; their way of giving back to causes that inspire them, and providing business opportunities for those with the entrepreneurial spirit.

I was looking for that type of opportunity when I saw my friend's posts on Facebook last spring. I was facing a real crossroads in my life (read this post on why I first joined R+F). I wanted a way to make more money for our family, but going back to my old standbys of freelance writing and editing weren't panning out. So I took a leap of faith to partner with two of the most successful, oft-quoted dermatologists in the nation.

I've loved this business ever since. Not only does my skin look and feel fantastic (thanks to Reverse - bye bye, sun damage!), but for the first time in about 8 years I finally feel like I'm contributing financially to my family by doing something I'm - gasp! - passionate about. What more could you possibly ask for in a job?

Seriously. I get paid to wash my face and tell people about it. It's as simple as that!

We're all aging, all the time. If you're looking to make a change the reflection you see every day by turning back the clock, reversing sun damage, getting rid of adult acne once and for all, or managing red, irritated skin, let's talk soon. With the right products and tools, used in the right order, with consistency, you're going to change the way your skin looks and feels, guaranteed (all products and tools have a 60-day, empty bottle, money-back guarantee!!). And when you hear about the way this business is changing the lives of so many people, you might just change your life too.

The Time Magazine issue to the left came out about a month before I decided to join. This cover was part of the reason I took the leap: I simply refused to believe that the only way to achieve beautiful, healthy skin was by going under the knife or needle.

P.S. - The Gleeful Gourmand remains a food blog. Unless I have something especially exciting to share about R+F, this will remain a place that's solely focused on all things GG!
