I have since realized why it was scary for me to sign on to be a Rodan + Fields consultant… I wasn’t listening to my gut. Deep down, I knew it was not the right opportunity for me, but I dove in, hoping it was going to be a good move. I am not at all criticizing R+F, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields are brilliant doctors, and impressive business women. R+F is wonderful for so many people, both customers and consultants, but it’s just not my path. And that’s OK. I’m a designer, artist, builder and entrepreneur. I LOVE creating and designing prototypes and helping others build their companies and realize their dreams. That’s my path… using my God-given creativity to help other hopeful entrepreneurs reach for the stars. The graphic attached is actually a concept in Carrie Green’s wonderful book, “She Means Business.” If you haven’t read it, go buy it now. I had a little detour on my path, but I quickly figured that out. I’ve had some other minor detours; a couple of part-time jobs that turned out to be unrewarding, some courses I took that I totally snoozed through. But, looking back I can almost always connect the dots and see why those challenges and situations were placed in my life. It’s super hard to understand when you’re in it, and you ask have to ask, “Why in the world did I do that?” or “Why did God place me in that wacky spot?”
Sometimes we need that venture off, to bring clarity to what truly is our passion, and purpose, and how we can best serve.
