Nashville Trip and Photo Shoot

July 17-21, 2014 - It had been awhile since I visited the Nashville area, but I returned there to visit relatives and attend a 60th wedding anniversary. I was asked by my uncle to take step and repeat style pictures of the people attending this 60th anniversary event in Smryna, TN. My trip was mostly relaxing and I used my camera phone a lot. I did get to do a photo shoot of my cousin Dara in downtown Nashville at the pedestrian bridge, and it has nice views of the surrounding area from a fairly high vantage point. 

Dara works as an Independent Consultant for Rodan+Fields Dermatologists. Many years ago I used Proactiv Solution, and now they have Proactiv+ which is acne treatment and skincare. Dara recently told me about a relatively new product called Reverse to erase the appearance of premature aging, including brown spots, dullness and discoloration. It sounded like exactly what I need. I wanted to try the products and so Dara shipped me the Reverse regimen and as of 9/14/14 I've started it. We'll see how it works. It turns out that the Rodan+Fields Convention was on the weekend of September 11-13, 2014 in Atlanta Georgia. 


This is Dara's story: In mid 2009 I was a newly separated single mom to a two year old working for corporate America 60+ hours a week, and helping my family with our "family business" from time to time. Getting some R&R for myself seemed way out of reach. In the midst of all the craziness, I was introduced to 'Rodan + Fields Dermatologists' by a good friend of mine. At first I was very hesitant to even hear about what was offered, but after considering it, I realized this opportunity was something I didn't want to miss. Although I wasn't looking for new skincare and definitely wasn't planning on adding anything else to my insane life at the time, I immediately jumped on the RF bandwagon! I hoped that it would get me out of my chaotic lifestyle and out of the corporate rat race I was running.

I was working for Rodan + Fields on a very part time basis alongside of my career and began using the products myself. After a week, I noticed my skin started to change from dull complexion to a radiant glow, and after about a month I was surprisingly foundation free! When I received my first pay check and seeing the numbers on it, everything changed mindset wise for me. Not only did the product do what it said it would do, but it was also a very lucrative business model anyone can do full or part time from anywhere there is internet access. At that moment, I decided to take a leap of faith, made Rodan and Fields my career, and work it around my son's schedule. In just a short time, I was able to pay for my mortgage, bills and my son’s mother’s day out program with no worries.

After 5 years of partnering with Rodan+Fields, our lives and the lives of whom we connect with has forever changed for the better. This business has allowed me to provide more than enough for my family and pay for my son’s private school tuition as well! I am glad to be able to spend more time with the ones I love. If you or anyone you know are looking for a change…this is an incredible opportunity! This decision changed my world and it can change yours too.
