Jamie Truscott – Finding Her Dream Job

Posted by on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

It can be difficult to find a job that’s fulfilling, flexible, and challenging. In search of such a position, Jamie Truscott’s path eventually led her to a career choice that would change her life forever.

Jamie initially worked as a door-to-door salesperson for a commodities company, a position she truly enjoyed. “I loved knowing that the harder I worked, the more I would be rewarded. It empowered me, and I promised myself that I would never go back to an hourly office job.” Jamie was on top of the world for a short time, but that situation, unfortunately, came to an end.

In search of a new career, Jamie moved to Vancouver and struggled to find work in the city’s highly competitive market. She reluctantly accepted a position at a law firm, performing “thankless work” with a deep sense of dissatisfaction. At the time, she had no idea that she would very soon discover her true passion.

Jumping in

Newly pregnant and concerned about leaving her child in daycare for ten hours a day to return to a job she didn’t enjoy, Jamie kept her eyes peeled for a better opportunity. Her break came when her colleague and best friend, Heather McCulloch, mentioned Rodan and Fields®. “Heather had seen Steph Godoy’s post about her thriving R+F business, and even though she didn’t know much about it at the time, she offered to connect us. Steph and I spoke over the phone in September of 2015, and after hearing about the business I decided to jump right in!”

R+F has restored Jamie’s self-confidence and provided an opportunity for her to be a much more equal contributing partner with her husband.

A “long list of things” convinced Jamie that R+F was the ideal fit for her, but two reasons particularly resonated. “I was in a desperate state with my skin as soon as I became pregnant, and when Steph explained that these products can help you become a walking billboard for beautiful skin, I was certainly intrigued. The thought of receiving compliments on my skin was definitely appealing.”

But most importantly, Jamie saw this as an opportunity to have a better life with her child. “I knew this was an amazing opportunity for me to start building a business around my life, without having to press pause on earning extra income. I could start this while pregnant and work towards the freedom to stay home with my daughter following maternity leave… it was a shot at completely changing my destiny, and an opportunity I wasn’t willing to pass up!”

After Jamie’s daughter was born, her business really started to take off. Others could see how life changing this business had become for her family and wanted the same for theirs.

Beginning business

After signing up as an Independent Consultant, Jamie left on a three-week honeymoon with her husband Mike. The timing wasn’t exactly ideal to invest in a new business, but she brought the products along to start getting a feel for them. “Lo and behold, within four weeks I already saw big improvements in my skin’s appearance. I was shocked and excited to start sharing the products with my network!”

Once home, Jamie took her first steps in the business, and the orders started to roll in. She recalls the excitement of sharing every detail with Heather. “For the first time in a long time, we were actually having fun at work again! I brought the products over for Heather to sample one evening, and after trying them only once, she joined me in business!” Since then, Jamie and Heather have grown their teams together, keeping pace and inspiring each other along the way.

“I found it really fun to reconnect with people I had lost touch with, and it was incredibly rewarding when my Customers excitedly shared their personal results with me. And then, when I had my daughter in March of 2016, my business really started to take off.” Jamie dove in and worked her business around her newborn daughter, dedicating roughly 20 hours each week, which helped quickly grow her team, Truscott’s Tribe. She recently qualified for Level V Circle, aims to achieve Lexus volume by fall of 2018 and hopes to eventually make Rodan + Fields her full-time career.

Traveling to Toronto annually to recognize the large portion of Jamie’s team on the East Coast has become her new favorite ‘working’ holiday.

Fulfilling her passion

Jamie’s experience with R+F has truly transformed her life. “I love being surrounded by so many incredible people. With Rodan + Fields you make new friendships every single day, and all your peers in this community really cheer you on. You’re constantly helping other people—both team members and Customers—so you have no choice but for this business to impact your life in a positive, meaningful way. The fact that I’ve built a team that I love and cherish, that has become like family to me, is something that I never expected, but I’m very proud and excited to share it with others.”

Jamie is elated to be living out her dreams with her family. “With Rodan + Fields, I feel proud to be a more equal contributing partner with my spouse and to grow my own self-worth. This business has given me my self-confidence back and has proven how important it is to be open to opportunities. But what I’m most passionate about is being there for my daughter, Emily, and future children. She’s the major reason why I want to be so successful, so I can be there for every important event in her life instead of being behind a desk.”

Jamie is thrilled to have finally found her niche. “I had missed being challenged, appreciated and helpful. The thrill that comes from connecting people to products and a business that enhances lives is beyond anything I can measure, and I feel like this opportunity is exactly what I was wishing for. This is my dream job, and is allowing me to be the mother I’ve always dreamt of being.”
