There are actually lots of reasons I decided to get on the Rodan+Fields train, but he’s the biggest one. And not just physically. Heh.
I’m totally fine with making size jokes about my baby because a) he’s a BABY and babies don’t have body image issues, and b) big is beautiful, I don’t care what the warped media says.
I want to be home with him as much as I possibly can. If there is one thing these last 6 months have taught me it’s that you can’t go backwards in time. Well, you kind of can with Rodan+Fields Reverse skincare regimen.
OMG, I’m awesome at this selling skincare thing!
But seriously, I hate that I’m not with him all of the time. I hate that he is growing like a
very chubby weed and that even if I was a stay-at-home-mom it would go by too fast. And I don’t want to get to the end of my life wishing I’d spent more time with him and Mark and all of our future children.
That’s right. Children. If I had it my way I’d have 5 more kids. What can I say? Little people are fun.
I’m now a consultant for Rodan+Fields. In case you didn’t know, they are the same doctors that created Proactive. Remember Proactive? The skincare with the infomercial that helped everyone’s teenage acne? Even P-Diddy’s and Katy Perry’s? So getting on this train is kind of like becoming the next P-Diddy. And who doesn’t want that?
Jay-Z. And probably most of America. But I digress.
More than all of that, I got excited because I thought of all of my friends that want to spend more time with their new babies. And I thought of all the people that would love to own their own business, but don’t know what that business would be and I genuinely feel like Rodan+Fields is that answer.
Other acceptable answers? Investing in Google in 1996.
I’m feeling really optimistic about this venture and I’d love for anyone that can catch the vision to join me. More than that, I know that lots of people are getting lots of different dreams off the ground and being (and staying) optimistic is one of the hardest parts of turning dreams into doing.
So, not only am I taking names for my Thanksgiving card mailing list (because the procrastination ends today…or tomorrow) I am also starting a Tartar Sauce Club.
Now you think I’ve really lost it.
Zig Ziglar has a great quote about being so optimistic that he’d go after Moby Dick in a row boat and take the tartar sauce with him. So my tartar sauce club is basically getting together to encourage and motivate each other once a month. And if you don’t have a dream yet, no worries, sometimes just being around excited people can ignite that for you.
And in case anyone becomes worried, I’m only going to write about R+F on Saturdays (more writing, yay!) so no worries about this blog becoming a horribly long commercial.
And now I’m off to bathe my baby in Rodan + Fields’ Anti-Age regimen…
I’m too good at this.
