Autumn Moore – Transforming Her Life

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Thursday, May 10th, 2018

Long before Rodan + Fields came into her life, Autumn Moore went through a difficult divorce. “That’s what brought everything full circle for me, an important reason why I started my R+F business, and one reason why I’m still doing it now. My ex-husband and I owned and operated a very successful multimedia company for over a decade, and I loved self-employment. That was right up my alley. But when we separated and sold the company, the divorce didn’t go very well. I knew the relationship was over, and it was more important to protect my kids from a lengthy court battle. I just didn’t have it in me to go to court. I left with zero alimony and no child support after 15 years of marriage. It left me totally financially devastated.”

Five years later, Autumn is happily engaged to her fiancé Matt and the pair are raising a daughter together. Still, the lessons she learned in her previous marriage stuck around. “My fiancé is wonderful and has the means to support me and let me stay home with our toddler, but in the back of my mind, I always knew I didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket. I just couldn’t ever do that again. I also didn’t want to put all that financial pressure on Matt by relying on him entirely. I had no idea what I was going to do. I had to figure something out.”

Catching her attention

When Autumn felt she was ready to try anything, Blair Donovan an old friend and colleague, reached out and asked if she’d heard about Rodan + Fields. “Honestly, I was so busy I just disregarded her message. She called me back twice. Both times I still had the mini facial sitting on my counter. Embarrassingly enough, I hadn’t ever gotten around to using it! I was impressed by her persistence, though, and I started asking questions.” Autumn was deeply interested in what she learned.

As she lay in bed that night after doing her own research, she couldn’t get R+F out of her head. “What really caught my attention was reading about Rodan + Fields in Forbes. In that moment, I truly saw the R+F vision and I just kept thinking that this was exactly what I was looking for. I joined the next day with the mini facial still sitting on my counter.”

Initial successes

Autumn launched her skincare business in August 2016, starting at about five hours per week. She surpassed her initial financial goals more quickly than she expected. “Blair is without a doubt a huge part of the reason I’m successful. She has an incredible ability to teach the system; I literally wrote out her recommendations and followed them religiously. When I received my first commissions check, I knew the sky was the limit! I’ve never done anything in direct sales and it was just totally foreign to me. But knowing myself, my skills, and my drive, I felt confident in my choice from the very beginning.”

Autumn jumped into Incentive Programs and started building her business with new energy. “I started reaching out to people who worked with me in the past. They already trusted me and supported my R+F business because of their past experience with my ethics and my honesty. I also reached out to the five closest women in my life and invited them to try the products with me. All five of them have supported me since then, and three have joined me in business. I earned my bonus back twice through the Fast Start Program, and that was really great because it showed me what was possible! I was amazed. If I could do that much in three months, just imagine what could happen in three years!”

Her biggest passion

For Autumn, the relationships she’s made through Rodan + Fields have meant even more than any monetary reward. “When I started my business, I’d only lived in this town for a couple of years and didn’t know many people. Rodan + Fields turned out to be a great social outlet and a business all wrapped into one! That’s why I’m most passionate about hosting R+F events. I love being super social and I’m a total people person. I’ve made live events the focus of my business, because the friendships I’ve made are just remarkable!”

A little further down the line, Autumn’s mentors created another major turning point in her journey. “Our nearest RFX Circle Achiever is Mallory Garshnick, and her recent Level V retreat in Nashville came at a seriously pivotal time in my business. Just listening to stories from my Upline leaders and seeing what they could do in a matter of a few years… Holy cow. If my life could look even remotely close to that in five years, I would work my butt off. My vision instantly became much greater. My belief became super solid and really steadfast, and that was when my business really started to take off.”

Shifting outward

Today, Autumn is focused on how she can help others. She dreams of one day being able to help somebody else in a situation like the one she found herself in before she discovered Rodan + Fields. “I love seeing lives being totally changed from this business, and paying it forward has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. My ultimate goal is to continue to grow personally as a leader so I can help others on Team Passionista. I want to become an even better teacher, to work alongside them and truly inspire.”

Autumn is passionate about sharing all that entrepreneurship has done for her. “Just 20 months after joining R+F, my life looks very different. My family and I are enjoying more time together, and we’re able to meet more of our goals. I feel like I have more financial security with my side income, and for the first time, I’m able to rely on myself. I just want people to know that perseverance and belief in this business can truly create an outcome that seems impossible. R+F has totally changed the course of my life.”
