Hi! I'm Sarah :) I have a 3 y/o son who talks nonstop, a 1 y/o daughter who just started walking (and lets her brother do all the talking), and we have another baby boy due in September!
My husband and I have been married four years, and except for the crazy summer heat, we love it here in Austin, Texas. We love to eat (if eating were an Olympic sport, I'd win), and we watch a lot of Netlifx. Some days it feels like I've been a mama longer than I can remember, and then some days it feels like just yesterday that I was meeting my husband for the first time...
My oldest son was born in 2011. That year, my husband had to quit his job, so while he stayed home with our infant, I went back to work as an apartment manager. We didn't think it would take so long to find another job, but it was almost a year before he found one, and I absolutely hated not being home with my son. That was such a hard year for all of us. I was so grateful to be able to leave my son in the most loving hands ever, but having to leave him every morning was SO hard for me, and I was so glad when my husband and I finally got to switch roles!
That summer, I got pregnant again, and by then, it just didn't make sense for me to go back to work--daycare would have cost more than I earned! It was really tight though, and we knew that at some point I was going to need to find a way to bring in extra income. I looked into a LOT of different things, but couldn't ever find something that would work for us. Finally, a friend of mine told me about how she was working with the doctors who created Proactiv in their new skincare company, Rodan + Fields. I was absolutely uninterested at first. I was not going to be another one of those "direct sales ladies!"
But then, my friend started earning more than her husband. AND she was finding the time to work her business in the midst of staying home with her four little ones (who she homeschooles!). There were no home parties and no inventory to stock with R + F...and everything, including the start-up kits for consultants, came with a 60-day money-back guarantee.
Since there really was SO little risk, my husband and I decided to take the plunge...and I have been so. glad. I. did. First of all, my acne is gone (can I get an amen?!). I've always had acne that I could never quite get rid of, and I've never been the type that "glows" during pregnancy--mostly I just breakout! But R+F has cleared that up...within a week of first using it, even my husband was shocked when I pointed out I wasn't wearing any makeup!
And it works for my friends, too--acne, sensitive skin, wrinkles, melasma and sun damage...all, gone! The highlight of my business came when my 80-year old grandmother called me to tell me how many compliments she's gotten on her skin!!
Rodan + Fields isn't a get rich quick scheme, and it isn't the answer for everyone's skin--but I cannot think of a better business model that enables you to work from home, in your own hours, earning just Starbucks money or enough to replace an income. You don't need to "know" anything or have any particular skills. We are an incredibly supportive team, and we teach you how to start building your income from day one. When I say it is my privilege to share this business with other women...I mean every word.
I'm giving away one foaming sunless tanner (so popular it sold out at the beginning of the summer!) and five mini facials! If you'd like to learn more about Rodan + Fields, either the business or the skincare, you can contact me directly at mommynotesblogs at gmail dot com.
