I’m a fomer NYC public school teacher and Policy Analyst, and when I was pregnant with my 3rd child and about to move out of the city to Westchester I learned about a turnkey business opportunity that I knew I could not pass up. And so I jumped in.
The makers of Proactiv Solution, the super successful acne regimen, practicing dermatologists Kathy Fields & Katie Rodan have started a new skin care line Rodan + Fields focused on anti-aging/prevention, sensitive skin, adult acne and sun damage reversal – the most common skin care complaints of adult women (and men!). After being a top selling brand in high end retail, they pulled out from behind the glass counters of department stores buying their company back from Estee Lauder in 2008 to enter the world of network marketing and empower independent consultants like me to build their own businesses with the backing of a multimillion dollar brand. I’ve been thrilled with the opportunity to work from home and still be a stay at home mom to my 3 young kids while stretching my own entrepreneurial muscles and helping to support my family.
At the core of this great company, are great products – layering active cosmetics in the right concentration in the right order to achieve results. It’s easy to feel discouraged when our skin care products don’t deliver, but by taking the same ingredients commonly prescribed by a dermatologist but making them OTC strength and layering them – the results are incredible. Rodan & Fields wanted to bring high quality dermatology to the masses and make them accessible to everyone. You can read about the 4 main product lines here as well as several supplemental products – sunscreens, body exfoliators and the Macro E – a home tool that mimics a microdermabrasion at the dermatologists office and opened up another 3 billion dollar market for the company. And now we have the return of the Amp MD which the Today Show listed as one of the most effective home skin care tools.
This online tool will walk your through your own personal skin care consultation: Solution Tool
There is a lot of training and mentorship provided to new consultants and although I never expected to do something like this, I’ve truly been impressed by the quality of the company, the people that this opportunity is attracting and the support and training they provide their consultants. You can read more about the business here: https://varnabal.myrandf.biz and see more about the resources we get as consultants here:
Harvard Business School recently did a case study on this start up and identified companies that have less than 1% of the population as registered consultants, with highly consumable products and at least 18 months into business as highly desirable business opportunities. That is still the case in the US. and the international markets are next.
You can see more about that here: http://mad.ly/73b284 and some of our press coverage here.
I am happy to soeak wtih anyone who is curious and intersted in building their own home based business and recognize the value of hitching their wagon to two huge names in the ever growing skin care market and build a business in very part time hours. It’s a virtual business (no parties or stocking of inventory required, corporate ships everything) and anyone who is self motivated and willing to be coachable can be successful and build a considerable residual income. And the best part – this zero debt company is just getting started with their first international expansion to Canada coming in 2014, then Asia then Europe and on and on and are on target to become another billion dollar brand.
