Sara Kraemer – The Spark of Confidence

Posted by on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

As a busy mom and a full-time administrative assistant, Sara Kraemer began to wonder if there was something more she could add to her already full life. She was looking for that spark of ambition, that inspiration to reach higher, because at the time she felt like she was standing still. “I had a comfortable job, but I wasn’t super challenged. I often wondered if this was what I was going to do for the rest of my life. My husband was super passionate about his job, and I wanted that spark he seemed to have. I just didn’t know when, where, or if I’d ever find it.”

Lighting the fire

After having her second son, Sara noticed her friend Chantel Beuning posting about Rodan + Fields® on social media. At first Sara was drawn in by the fantastic skincare products, but after a while she realized that this opportunity might bring the sense of purpose she sought. “After about six months of watching Chantel’s progress, I finally purchased REDEFINE™ to help with the new wrinkles I had developed. Right away, I noticed a big difference in the way my skin looked and felt!”

At that point, Chantel suggested that Sara launch her own skincare business. Though she and her husband were both hesitant, Sara was attracted by the discount she would earn on the products she’d grown to love. “Sales was totally out of my comfort zone, but I knew I was going to be using the products for a long time. I thought even if I just sold enough to pay for my products, I’d be thrilled.” Sara signed on as an Independent Consultant in September 2015. She diligently balanced her work life, family time, and her new “side business,” feeling a little overwhelmed but also excited about the changes she already saw around her.

Sara’s husband Joe was a big skeptic at first but now is one of her biggest supporters in business.

Beginning her new business

Though Sara had modest expectations for her success at the start, she soon realized the true earning potential. “Two months into the business, my husband noticed how happy and excited I was. We finally had the money to go on extra vacations, and I had no plans to slow down anytime soon.” Sara felt like the effort she put into her growing business showed in her monthly earnings. However, confidence proved to be a little bit of a challenge for this new Consultant.

“I was so excited to share these products with family and friends, but when I started my business I was worried about what others might think. When people asked what I did for a living, I would leave out that I owned my own skincare business—the very thing I was most passionate about! Looking back, I wish I had been more confident in myself and my business in the very beginning. But as my confidence grew, others began to feel my excitement. My business really took off soon after that.”

One of the best parts of Sara’s Rodan + Fields business is the friendships she’s made with so many strong, beautiful and supportive women.

Transformative new goals

Inspired by her competitive nature and the taste of success, Sara challenged herself to work ever harder. “Once I reached one level, I was on to the next. I never settled for where I was—I always focused on the next goal!” Now, pushing for Level V, she works 5-10 hours per week and loves every moment of the journey. She dreams of finally staying at home with her family after the upcoming birth of their newest baby, and plans to do whatever it takes to see her future business flourish. She loves encouraging Team Ambition toward ever bigger goals.

“I’d love to be a Level V Leader, and right now I’m super close! It’s so rewarding to see my team members so excited and determined to reach their dreams. You have to have the ambition to want to succeed in this business, and I love being a part of that in other people’s lives. Convention also pumped me up to build my business more. Being around all those supportive women and men brought a whole different vision for me. I got to see my Upline leader walk the stage, which is now definitely a lifelong dream. Seeing the Doctors walk out on that stage—two amazing, powerful, strong, successful women—was also incredible. It gave me goosebumps!”

The resulting spark

With a successful team and a solid Preferred Customer base surrounding her, Sara is enjoying every moment of her new career. Her R+F business has also provided a new and improved life for her growing family. “This business has allowed us to help others, definitely, but the additional income has just been such a blessing for our family. We now have extra time to enjoy the little moments and memories together. Family is everything to me, so that’s a super important change.”

Sara is also grateful for the change Rodan + Fields has brought within herself. “For me, personally, it’s not all about the extra money—it’s about the personal growth. My business has given me the spark that I needed and wanted in my life. It’s challenged me and built my self-confidence and given me something to be passionate and excited about.” Her advice for future team members: “Anyone can do this. Working full-time and being a mom, I’m very much able to run a successful business. You can fit this work in the nooks and crannies of your life. Just know what your goal is and be determined that it’s going to happen!”
