Level V Executive Consultant from Mobile, Alabama
Kathy Chavers Asked for Something Different—and She Got It!
Level V Executive Consultant Kathy Chavers from Mobile, Alabama knows how to run a race—a frequent marathon and half-marathon competitor, she understands what it means to keep a steady pace and her mind focused on her goal. So perhaps it is not surprising she would reach Level V in less than three months. However, she would tell you divine intervention may have played a role in getting her involved in the first place.
Kathy was already using Rodan + Fields® products and impressed with the results when a series of events convinced her that the opportunity might be equally as impressive. It started on a beautiful Sunday morning as she and her husband were outside reading the paper—Ashley McCormick, her friend and Sponsor, called on her way home from the convention in New Orleans to say she wanted to talk to Kathy about the business. At that moment, Kathy was reading an article about direct sales and Rodan + Fields was one of the companies featured. Kathy agreed to meet with Ashley and her up line Consultant, Iz Head, to discuss it.
The following day Kathy had lunch with some friends, explained her upcoming meeting, and asked them what they thought. When one of her friends commented about the success she knew Ashley and Iz were having, Kathy felt she had truly been steered toward Rodan + Fields. “I’m the mother of a six-year-old boy and the demands of my job really took away from the things I needed to do with him,” she says. “My stress level was huge. I’d been praying for something different to do.”
I Can Do This Big
Kathy thought about the business for four weeks, intending to continue her successful broadcast sales job for the local CBS affiliate. Every morning she woke up thinking about Rodan + Fields, and finally said to her husband, “I can do this. I think I can do this big.”
Once she started sharing the products and opportunity with her friends, she realized it was a natural ft for her. Even though she built a successful career in sales, she never feels as if she is selling. That’s because her story comes from the heart and she totally believes in the products, a belief system that quickly proved her comment, “I think I can do this big,” very true. In January she quit her full-time job at the TV station to focus all of her efforts on Rodan + Fields. She said her friends felt if she was willing to give up a six- figure income, this must be worth considering. “I just invited them, and said ‘I’m going for a ride and I want to take you all with me,’” says Kathy.
The 90 Day Plan and the Goal Board were very helpful to Kathy in building her business so quickly, and she feels “staying true” to the guidelines is critical. She makes a point to dig deep to help each of her team members set their goals, and stays in touch with them to remind them of those goals and how they can reach them.
“If you’re thinking about doing it, then absolutely don’t think any longer,” she says to anyone considering becoming a Consultant. “I waited four weeks too long!”
