Jessica Stevens – An Unexpected Bonus

Posted by on Thursday, February 8th, 2018

After welcoming twins into her family, Jessica Stevens left her Kindergarten teaching career, embracing her chance to be a stay-at-home mom. She loved the time with her twins, and made staying at home her primary plan. Jessica was surprised when an exciting opportunity to further her career from home came in October 2012, when she saw Susie Carpenter posting online about her Rodan + Fields business.

“I was very intrigued by what she was doing. We hopped on a call with Laura Meijer and I was even more interested to hear her story about building a business with quadruplets at home. I thought, ‘Goodness! If she can do it with four kids, what’s stopping me with two?’” Jessica signed up as an Independent Consultant that very night, excited about working from home and the prospect of earning a little extra money to help support her family.

Finding her motivation

Excited and with a bit of beginner’s nerves, Jessica launched her business and entered into a community of Consultants focused on celebrating progress. “I had a pretty fast start. By working 20 hours per week, in my sixth month in business I hit Level V, which of course was a huge incentive. I was thrilled to be able to do that! That fall I met Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields on the Level V trip to Napa, and Sarah Robbins at a Corporate training event in Nashville. Those were both were huge highlights of my Consultantship.”

While at her first Summit, Jessica also took part in training exercises that stuck with her throughout her professional life. “Back then, I got really nervous speaking in front of crowds. I could talk in front of kids all day, but I did not want to talk in front of adults! But Laura led a training event that triggered a big change in me. I successfully shared my story in front of a ton of people, and now when we have team events it’s much easier for me to speak to a crowd. I don’t feel so nervous anymore! I’ve definitely grown in that aspect.”

Family life with R+F

Jessica loves what she is doing with her business, and that she is able to stay home and be the constant for her girls. “Now the kids are in school we’re actually busier, but what I love most about my R+F business is that I can still intertwine it with everything else we’re doing. My husband is happy and I’m happy! I’m really thankful for that blessing. As much as I love teaching, I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to full-time work. Right now I love focusing on my kiddos and our family even more.”

Jessica’s Rodan + Fields business has made a big impact on her family’s life, and she has started using her monthly earnings to help with finances. “If I didn’t have my R+F business I’d be back to full-time teaching, and I don’t know what that would look like for my family. Of course we’ve met ups and downs along the way. But what keeps me going is that my business has provided a side income for the last five years, and it provides us with more stability, extra breathing room, and a sense of peace. ”

Love for her community

Another aspect of entrepreneurship that brings Jessica a sense of peace and purpose is the community she’s built around her business. “I realized that I love, love, love helping people. When people message me that the appearance of their skin has changed, when a teenager gains confidence from clearer skin, and when my girlfriends are able to help their skin look great despite the hormonal changes of pregnancy, that’s what makes me feel the most passionate. I started using REVERSE early on in my Rodan + Fields journey and I was so amazed by the product that I still use it every single day. I love hearing stories of other people who, like me, are using the products, loving them, and seeing amazing results.”

In 2018, Jessica is shooting for Premier and Lexus. She’s determined to promote in title and help her team members do the same. “I’m beyond thankful for my team. They have been there for me the whole way and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. I’m incredibly blessed by this wonderful group of people I get to work with. My accountability partners have been my rock, always on my side and in my corner cheering me on. I’m so thankful for them.”

An enduring opportunity

Jessica believes that with consistency, determination, and a willingness to dream, anyone can make this opportunity a possibility. “I wasn’t expecting this business at the time, but it came into my life at the perfect moment and has become a huge part of who I am. R+F is a real opportunity, a constant that will remain in my life for a long time. I’m so thankful that I’ve been doing this work for all this time and am still passionate about it. I’m still loving what I do every single day.”

As both a professional and as a consumer, Jessica declares herself fully loyal to Rodan + Fields. “My skincare business has impacted my life in so many ways. As a person, I’ve grown stronger and more confident. I grew out of my comfort zone quickly while I developed an amazing network of partners and friends I can depend on. Because of R+F, I’ve gotten to know a lot of wonderful women and men who I would never have met otherwise. I’m very happy with what my business has done so far in my life.”
