Rebecca Harrison – It’s a Family Thing

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Rodan + Fields entered Rebecca Harrison’s life as a complete surprise. She was working a demanding schedule as a customer service representative when one of her sisters saw a Facebook post that changed all of their lives. “A close friend of ours posted about Rodan + Fields back in 2012, and my sister Laura immediately reached out to her to learn more about the opportunity. She signed on as an Independent Consultant, and our other two sisters, our mom, and I jumped in right behind her. Everything started from that single Facebook post.”

Taking moment to change

While Rebecca’s sisters dove straight into business building, she remained a product user for a while before deciding to work her Rodan + Fields business. “It was about two years before I jumped in with both feet to actively work and promote my business. During that time I was still working full-time at the bank and I was going to school full-time as well. My vacations were extremely limited and I basically spent my life working for somebody else. There wasn’t very much me time, family time, or friend time.”

At that point, inspired by seeing the rest of her family achieving their dreams, Rebecca’s father opened a conversation with her about shifting careers. “My dad sat me down and suggested that if I devoted time to my Rodan + Fields business I could still be earning an income with a lot more flexibility. He encouraged me to jump in with R+F and give this career a try. At the time I was young, single, and without children, so I didn’t have a very big and clear ‘why’. I was financially comfortable, you could say. But he hated to watch me miss out on this incredible opportunity. He knew R+F could change my life if I would give it my all.”

Creative business growth

After that conversation, Rebecca immediately put in her two weeks’ notice and devoted her full-time efforts to building a successful skincare business. Rebecca started by getting creative in order to reach a broader network. “It got kind of tough to grow my business in Magee, Mississippi — a town of 4,000 where my sisters and I knew all the same people. We were even homeschooled, so it wasn’t like we had large networks to begin with. But with social media, you can make new connections all over the US. I always tell people when they join me in business that there’s no secret to Rodan + Fields. It’s just about consistency and talking to enough people.”

“When I decided that this was going to be my future and I really buckled down, I made my mind up to talk to 10 people a day, to tell people about R+F everywhere I went, and to work my business every day without fail. That’s what made the difference. In growing my social media network, people were able to follow our journey and see our family’s success. It’s so amazing the people you can reach — people that I would have never met outside of social media. It’s honestly been the biggest asset to our businesses.”

Reaching personal triumphs

As Rebecca worked hard to turn her Rodan + Fields business into a viable full-time career, she also had an even bigger goal in mind. “After watching my sisters become Lexus Achievers, that was always my dream. It took me five years to earn my Lexus, and I felt such a sense of accomplishment when I finally got it. Earning the Lexus really opened my eyes to the belief that the sky’s the limit and anything is possible. I was the fifth person in my immediate family, sitting around our dinner table, who accomplished this huge goal. It doesn’t matter where you come from or how many people you know! If there’s a will, there’s a way, and I believe anybody can achieve anything.”

So far, Rebecca’s R+F business has succeeded past her wildest dreams. “Honestly I never dreamed that my Rodan + Fields business would grow to even a fifth of what it is now. I believe any goal I wanted to reach for is achievable. I’m even able to do more for friends, family, and people in need. To be completely honest, my hopes and dreams are truly already met. My biggest goal now is to help my team, Goal Squad, reach the same level of accomplishment that my sisters and I have achieved.”

The family connection

For Rebecca, the best benefit of her life-changing skincare career has been working this business with her whole family. “As siblings start their own families and move away, a lot of times they grow apart. I love the fact that my family gets to travel together now and that we talk every single day. I’m with my sisters 90 percent of the time because of Rodan + Fields. Our mom is also included in everything we do, and our two brothers are actually R+F Consultants as well. All five of my siblings are Independent Consultants now, and I love the fact that we truly do not miss a beat. We don’t miss a single thing that happens in each other’s lives because we stay so connected through R+F.”

“I want to encourage others not to overthink R+F. You never know until you try, and the sky really is the limit. I’m so glad I didn’t miss out on this chance because opportunity waits for no one. This business can be a fit for anyone. My sisters and I had different goals and dreams in life, but it’s been a fit for every one of us. I’m really passionate about the products, but also about the business side of R+F. It’s helped our entire family build a sense of security. Growing up we, of course, had everything we ever needed, but now we have the freedom to do things we’ve never done before. It’s the thing I love most about Rodan + Fields.”
