Sarah Sollar – An Accomplishment Worth Recognizing
Wednesday, November 5, 2014

A Realtor for over 12 years, Sarah Sollar has always enjoyed feeling like she’s making a difference, whether in her profession or by improving her family’s life. In 2011, after the birth of her son, Landry, Sarah decided to make real estate a part-time career so she could spend more time at home. The inconsistency of the real estate industry meant that there would often be several months in a row with no closings. “We were okay, but I knew I needed to find a way to work from home during slow times.”

Sarah loves that her business not only benefits her financially, but enables her to create a life for herself and her family that she is proud of.

In May of 2013, Sarah noticed her friend Jamie posting on Facebook about her Rodan + Fields® business. Sarah didn’t have any interest in the products or opportunity until a few months later when she looked at a picture of herself and noticed how many freckles and brown spots she had on her face. Sarah reached out to Jamie, hoping she could recommend a product that would help. “I started using the REVERSE Regimen and, after two months, I was hooked.”

Soon after this, Sarah decided to try another regimen and purchase one for her mom as well. Jamie suggested that she purchase the Consultant kit because it would be less expensive. So, in November of that year Sarah enrolled as an Independent Consultant. “I really had no intention of growing a team at first.”

After one month, Sarah was intrigued and decided to keep going to see what would happen. Through her hard work and determination, she achieved Premier Level V in less than a year. “When I first started, I didn’t even think I’d reach Level V, but I did within six months. Things happen when you stick with it and don’t give up.”

Sarah continued to expand her business. Throughout the process, she began to recognize a change in herself. After being a stay at home mom for over two years, she had lost sight of her personal goals and no longer felt like she was making a difference the way she had before. “I loved being there for my son, but I wasn’t taking any time for myself, and I was stuck in a rut. I needed a reason to get out and get involved in something, and that is exactly what my R+F business has done for me.”

As she built a team and settled into her role as a leader, Sarah’s confidence grew. The sense of self-worth she had gotten from her real estate career suddenly returned. “I can stand up in front of a crowd and speak from the heart about what this opportunity has done for me, and that has been the biggest reward.”

Leading a team and helping others achieve their goals helped Sarah realize that her business not only benefits her financially, but enables her to create a life for herself and her family that she is proud of. “I love going to bed every night knowing that I did my best.”

She is inspired whenever she realizes the difference she is making, whether she is helping a customer find confidence through improved skin or supporting a teammate who is working towards a goal. The knowledge that her business is changing lives pushes Sarah to work even harder.

Sarah believes strongly in the power of positivity and acknowledgement. “Being recognized, being respected, being a leader, being admired — those are all rewards. I’ve never had anyone look up to me, and now I have a team of over 100 people who do.”

It’s exciting for Sarah to set the tone for her team and create an atmosphere based around positive reinforcement. She knows that being a great leader can mean the difference between success and failure. “When you are consistent and take the time to recognize others when they do well and encourage them when they need it the most, you create a positive environment, and that is contagious. My upline is incredibly supportive and positive, and that has been a huge part of my success.”

Sarah now recognizes that the possibilities for her business are endless, and she has started to set bigger goals for herself. A year ago, Sarah’s husband accepted a new job, which meant a three-hour commute and a seven-day work week. She has since set a goal to help her husband decide to return to a five-day work schedule.

The family recently closed on a house of their own and are currently working to remodel it. “It just keeps getting better. I used to just read stories about people experiencing success — it that didn’t happen to people I knew, and especially not to me. But, now that is reality. As long as you have a reason and a clear vision, your dreams can come true.”

Sarah loves the time freedom she has to devote more of herself to her family.

As a leader, she strives to recognize others for their accomplishments and efforts. However, one day as her son scrolled through pictures on her phone, Sarah realized she hadn’t been taking the time to recognize herself. Her son came across a picture of her on a stage at Convention being recognized for achieving Premier Level V. “He put his head on my shoulder and looked up at me and said, ‘I’m so proud of you, Mom.’ It just melted my heart. And you know what? I’m pretty darn proud of me, too! I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to say that before.”

A small gesture of recognition from someone she cares for so deeply was all Sarah needed to remind her to take a step back and look at how far she has come. In working her business and caring for her family, she is making a difference every day, and that is worth recognizing.
