It’s all setting in what the past week has held for me. I got the pleasure and opportunity to go to NYC for the first time ever. It was business first though!
The privileges I was presented:
*training session on how to better my business
*finally meet those teammates who offer so much support
*network with those who are the top achievers *cheers to a successful 2018 and kick off 2019
*fellowship with many great women
Things sure have changed for me the past 10 months and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Excited to see what is in the future!

This little biz of mine has brought people into my life who have helped me to find my “BEST” me. ❤️ Yes.. I expected the extra paychecks, but what I didn’t expect, were the INCREDIBLE Friendships and HUGE Personal Growth. 🙏🏼 My business has given me the ability to work with my best friends, reconnect with old friends and make new friends who truly are more like family. 👭
It’s given me confidence & empowered me personally and professionally!!!👩🏽💻 LOVE My Tribe and Gaaaah LOVE being in biz for myself, but clearly not by myself. ❤️ #global#bossbabes#empowering#mompreneur#blessed#grateful#leadership#nycsummit2019#strongissexy#lovenetworkmarketing#sisterhood

Finaalllyyyyy catching my breath after a whirlwind trip!
There was SO MUCH GOODNESS in one jam packed wknd and I loved every second of it!
When going through customs, I asked my friend & biz partner Anne, "what do we say when they ask is this for business or pleasure?" There definitely was a business aspect to the weekend but it was all pleasure even the training!! Ummm hello drinking champagne during the biz presentations ... Never got that at teacher staff meetings!! If you haven't found something that you love doing everyday (and I'm not talking about the boudoir stuff!) Then we need to chat!
Let me introduce you to an opportunity where you will experience a COMMUNITY!
Love the vibe, and love your tribe!
Some people think what I do is “weird” “not real” “a waste of time” “pyramid-y” believe me, I know this and I get it, because I used to be one of those people! 🙋🏼♀️
It’s very hard to explain to the outsider what this business really is. I used to see this opportunity as someone trying to “scam” people into making money off them or pushing a product they don’t really believe in. Omg was I wrong! Someone described this as being invited to a party but not being able to actually go inside. You can see it sort of through the windows but until you step foot into that party you honestly have no clue what it’s like. .
The party looks and feels just like my weekend in NYC. The happy hour on Friday night was buzzing with woman from countries all over. We were all so excited to see each other. The friendship is genuine, you guys! On Saturday the training room was filled with smart, successful, business-minded women who once roamed the office buildings in Manhattan or court rooms or real estate firms and some are still working their highly professional jobs because THEY CAN and THEY WANT to alongside this business. We laughed, we cried, we were inspired and then in true R+F style we ended with a champagne toast. That night at our private event can only be described as F-U-N! We work hard but, man, do we love to play hard! .
🖤Time and time again I find myself so thankful I looked past those negative opinions and saw the real and true opportunity in front of me. Because let me tell you this party is unlike anything you’ll EVER experience and we have room for more people, AND more growth AND more of that F-U-N! 🖤 #nycsummit2019#wecallthiswork#thankgodeverydayforit#entrepreneurlife#myworkfamily#comejointheparty
I did a thing. It was kinda a big deal. I really had no clue. What I gained from it was some much needed perspective on my own business success and growth that I lacked. I knew 2018 was a year of many challenges for me personally but I didn’t know that it was a year that was equally challenging for many of the top leaders of my company as well. I experienced massive personal and professional growth as a result of the challenges I faced but didn’t realize that my professional growth was big screen shout out in front of 150 of the companies top leaders worthy until this moment. I don’t suffer from imposter syndrome but I did lack perspective on how incredible my growth actually was. Im thankful for the new perspective. It will help me to grow into the woman who is capable of achieving my dreams. I’m thankful for all the lessons I learned in 2018 and for the challenges that helped further develop my character and the traits that lend themselves to my success in life and in my business. Im thankful for my authenticity, tenacity, grit, perseverance, and work ethic. I’m thankful for my willingness to try something new when what I was doing wasn’t working anymore. I’m thankful for the people who paved the way and saw greatness in me when I didn’t. I’m thankful for those who trust the greatness I see in them even when they don’t yet and who have said YES to coming with me to the top of this company to experience all the greatness it has to offer! No more playing small. Time to RISE!! #nycsummit2019

I didn’t know any of these women 4 years ago. Since 2015 we have had countless laughs, traveled ALOT, celebrated ALOT and pushed each other to dream bigger. We have all built and continue to build businesses with the support of each other and our teams. The income is fabulous but the community and friendships are priceless. ✨
I haven’t been out dancing in foreverrr! I’m usually home in my Mom uniform, leggings and t shirt chasing babies around 😬🤷🏼♀️ But, we’re going to be doing a lot more dancing, living it up and celebrating in 2019! There is so much to be excited about! ✨ .
Last night, R+F rented out a club and held an exclusive dance party for us! I loved making new friends this weekend with all of these amazing ladies from all over. It was a blast. This old lady even made past midnight lol! Woot woooot! 🎉💃🏼🏙🍎 .

This past weekend was nothing short of amazing!! Thanks to my Rodan + Fields business and my amazing team, I qualified for a leadership training in NYC❤️ I was surround by inspiring consultants from all over the US and Puerto Rico as well as some of the top Corporate leaders for R+F. It was empowering, energizing, motivational and fun....these ladies know how to throw a good party!😜 I'm leaving NYC with so much amazing information, great business ideas, and ridiculous excitement for my business, my team, and for 2019!! 🙌🏼🎉 And, as I head home to Adrian and the girls, I feel so thankful that I have a loving supportive husband who encourages me every day as I maneuver the world of being an entrepreneur🤷♀️; for my kids who are so excited that their mom owns a business (plus, they love using the products😉); and that I get to do this with my sisters and have made so many incredible friendships along the way!!❤️

We work hard, but we play harder!! 🙌🏽🎉🥂Last night we capped off our incredible weekend with good food, drinks and lots of dancing!! 💃🏽I don’t see many of these women often but they all touched my life in some way this weekend! Energized and ready to take 2019 by storm! 🏃🏽♀️ #RFLife#nycsummit2019
You are who you hang out with - right?! I’m honored to call these women my friends, my teammates and my inspiration! Plus they bring so much FUN to my life!
Thursday night we kicked it off with our first ever NYC POP-UP event!
Friday I got to spend time with our partners at TPG discussing diversity, followed by a fun cocktail party at The Carrol Place and ended with an awesome dinner at Bond Street! If you haven’t been...go! The food is phenomenal! Saturday we dove deep into learning with an all day training! We had a fun housewives moment - where I may have stirred up the room a bit with my very own tagline ;) Saturday night we wrapped it up with a fun dinner at Public Kitchen (another incredible spot) and dancing till the morning at Boogie Woogie. Now onto the best best part - Knick game with the fam!! Forever grateful to spend time with women who are full of GRIT, INTEGRITY AND COMPASSION FOR OTHERS!!! Cheers to our #NYCSUMMIT2019
Till next year!

The deeper I dig the the better it gets.... A day spent w/ inspiring leaders from across 🇺🇸 and 🇵🇷 to share ideas, launch new programs & celebrate success! A common thread running thru the messages of the day....Many never imagined they’d be successful at running a business. Yet, ALL grateful for the options it’s provided and friendship fostered💕
I can’t wait to see what 2019 will bring for so many💫
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
– C.S. Lewis
Connections have been the heart and soul of this business for me. Meeting new friends and old. Hearing stories of success through hardships, success around busy, demanding careers as physicians, attorneys, educators and corporate executives. We all said yes because we wanted more and we didnt want to miss out on this huge opportunity.
You too? I know now I'm not the only one. .
What a journey so far!! Celebrating almost 2 years of this joyous ride with some of the best, most inspirational women of R+F this weekend!
Breakfast, collaborating on all to come this year, leadership luncheon followed by a private night out in the BIG CITY!! It doesn’t get any better than this!
Trust me when I say NOW is the time! New counties, new products, new categories, new programs and recognition, new trips.... the list keeps going on and on!! 🤩
If you are at all curious, let’s chat! Total open book here... with all that this opportunity has given to me, I can’t help but shout from the roof tops baby! Let’s do this!! 🥳
How can I even begin to recap this trip? It was probably one of the best date trips we have ever had.... maybe that was because a date trip was long overdue or maybe it was because we did and seen things we have wanted to do for many years. We spend a couple days exploring “the concrete jungle”, got lost in the subway, cried as we remembered 911, stared in awe at the Statue of Liberty, ate some amazing food, took selfies in Central Park, and so much more!
On Saturday I was honored to be trained by the best of the best and the corporate team! It was a beautiful day filled vision, empowerment, leadership, and celebration and reminded me all over again why I started this business in the first place - to be able to give my family more and to help empower others!
A very smart and inspiring leader said this and I couldn’t agree more- “Your entire life can really change in a year. You just gotta love yourself enough to demand more, and be disciplined enough to actually work for more.” 🖤
Today did not disappoint. /// ❤️
Loved filling my mind with positivity and being surrounded by so many incredible leaders who poured their hearts into us. These retreats aren’t required, but are offered to help each of us become better versions of ourselves. The community we have is truly like no other and I am so thankful! .
Support always. .
This weekend has been 💯! The people, the training, the city, all of it! It’s so inspiring being around the top leaders in our company & some of our amazing corporate team. Thankful for the last 11 months, and excited for the for the future more NOW, than EVER 🙃😍 But FIRST, a night out dancing 😉 💃🏼 .
Last night’s meet and greet with almost 150 TOP RF leaders on our team from all over North America!! Elevate, Celebrate, and Get ready for explosive growth and momentum from us in 2019!! 🎉💃🏽🙌🏽🥂 #nycsummit2019#RFLife
We are here learning from the best of the best in the company - those who have done it ahead of us and now have the freedom to live out their passions and purpose in life and to give back more. Here’s my power partner and fellow doctor mom @eyez2gaze asking THE QUESTION - how do you build your business while being a busy full time working mom? #nycsummit2019#teamONE#weareone#doctormom#lifechangingskincare
I’m bundled up and ready to face the cold to get to #thestandardhotel for a day of training and celebration with other leaders in Rodan + Fields. It’s been over 6 months since I’ve been kid free for more than a few hours 🙌🏼 You got this @johnjmart#ihatethecold#nycsummit2019
What better way to kick off the year than a think tank weekend in NYC with some of my favorite leaders.
It's going to be #ArticChic for the 2nd year in a row. I am bringing long johns (kidding not kidding) and my motivation to make 2019 a remarkable year. See you tomorrow team!
