Macy Eaves Eagle – Full Transformation

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

As a young married couple, Macy and Zack Eagle were fulfilling their lifelong passion by working in agriculture. However, Macy’s management position with wholesale plant nurseries involved a strict schedule, and the lack of flexibility started interfering with her happiness. “I just missed out on so much. I was only 25 and I had no other option but to keep working, but I had horrible migraines and other health problems. I never got to travel with my friends or do anything fun because I worked all the time. I remember a friend telling me, ‘Macy, I wish I could have your paycheck.’ I really wished I could have her schedule! That job taught me that money isn’t everything.”

As her day job grew more taxing, Macy became overwhelmed at home with sales pitches flooding her inbox and social media. “I was approached about buying products from literally every company you can think of. I never responded to any of those messages.” However, when Kari Prine introduced herself to Macy at the Texas State Fair, something changed. “This complete stranger tapped me on the shoulder and wanted to talk to me about Rodan + Fields. Of course I told her I wasn’t interested. Just to get her off my case, I said she could contact me in July. We laugh now, looking back, because at 6 a.m. on July 1 she sent the email that changed my life.”

Taking the leap

Though Macy had turned down similar opportunities for years, she just couldn’t stop thinking about the possibility of R+F after that day at the state fair. She was finally ready to give this new idea a try. “I didn’t really see the big picture in the beginning. Between working six days a week, a boyfriend (now husband) in Oklahoma, and being very involved in the local community — I had a lot on my plate. But I thought if I could make some extra income that’d be awesome. When she told me I could send my kit back in 60 days for a refund if I wasn’t satisfied, I was sold.”

Macy became an Independent Consultant in August 2015 and wrote her first big goal in a notebook. She was shocked when her hard work paid off and her business surpassed that amount in the first month. “Looking back at that notebook I see that I was completely clueless, as we all are, when starting our own business. But that first month made me think I could afford to dream a little bit bigger. I got serious, put my head down, and got to work. I did more than what was expected of me. And no matter how busy I was, I committed a little bit of time every single day to grow my business.”

Raising her confidence

Working 15-30 hours per week, Macy hit Level V within three months. After two more, she chose to leave her full-time job. “That was such an awesome day, and I’ve worked my R+F business full-time ever since! This is the best job in the world. The freedom I have now is second to none.” Macy moved on to achieve Premier and earn her Lexus, always keeping an eye on what it would take to reach that next step. Yet when Kari suggested running for RFX together, Macy felt almost out of her league.

“I felt a bit tired from working so hard for Lexus, and I still had a long way to go. I didn’t believe I could do it. I didn’t want to shoot for RFX and then miss or fall short. But then I got to looking at the numbers and I realized, ‘I really can do this.’ It was such a lightbulb moment for me. When I finally decided to believe in myself, I worked really hard.” Macy set aside her fears of what other people might think and learned to balance her time at home. She hit Elite and became an RFX Circle Achiever before the end of 2017.

A rewarding outcome

Thanks to all her hard work, Macy no longer has to miss out on all the fun life has to offer. “With my Rodan + Fields business, I’ve learned that you can really say no to the things you don’t want to do. And I never have to turn down anything family related. My grandmother recently went through chemo and I got to be there with her. I get to help my aunt with her clothing store and frequently meet up with friends for lunch. I work out. I help my husband at the barn and we travel to stock shows all over the US. Because of my R+F business, I get to do all the things I really enjoy!”

Macy and Zack are also looking forward to qualifying for a year full of travel on Rodan + Fields incentive trips. And with the incredible support she receives from her mother, brother, and husband, Macy is starting to dream even bigger. “I would love to be able to help my husband start his own operation in the cattle world. And eventually, when we start thinking about starting a family, I want to have the option to stay home with my kids. At the same time, I know I need to still be doing something that challenges me and that I can call my own. My Rodan + Fields business can give me the best of both worlds: being a mom and contributing in a big way to my family’s future.”

Community inspiration

Team Soar is incredibly important to Macy, and she’s grateful to be their leader. “Our team is very spread out and very diverse. A lot of team members are using Rodan + Fields as a way to make additional income. They work all day, balancing families and all their other activities, and they still do this on the side. I love that. They really have a sense of drive and passion. I love that they want to be more and do more with their life.” She’s also inspired by the deep friendships she’s made within the R+F community. “I can honestly say some of my best friends do this business with me. They’re just like family. It’s amazing to do something you love with people you love!”

Another unexpected benefit of working with a team is getting to watch those individuals turn their dreams into reality. Macy explains, “It’s awesome when you meet your own goals, and of course I really love doing it. But what I love even more is helping my team members do the same. My mom is in business with me now, and to see her working hard and being successful is so rewarding — and that’s just one example. I love helping my team members experience the same joy I have by reaching their goals, staying home with their kids, or creating their own flexibility. It’s the best feeling in the world.”

Looking back

Macy is incredibly thankful for the changes R+F has brought into her professional and personal life. “My business has completely transformed my life in so many ways. I literally feel like I’m on vacation every day because I get to do something I love while being home, helping my husband, seeing friends and family, and getting to travel. My world looks so different today than it did two and a half years ago. I almost don’t recognize it!”

“I just want others to remember that it truly doesn’t matter how young or old you are. You deserve to be happy. You don’t have to do things you don’t want to do. Owning your own business is obviously a big leap of faith, but it’s so rewarding. I believe that if you put in the time and effort, you’ll learn that the harder you work the more that you can benefit. When you join Rodan + Fields, you’re building something lasting. That’s the best gift you could ever give yourself.”
