“I woke up this morning and realized I don’t have what it takes to sit back and be average.” I stumbled upon this inspiring quote and immediately thought of my friend Sarah Goldberg. She is my most recent client and her mompreneur game is on fire.
Sarah and I became friends in college. She was in my freshman Spanish class and I remember her vividly. She was the pretty, well-dressed girl I so desperately wanted to be friends with! One Friday, while walking back from class, a sweet, soft spoken voice was in my ear. It was Sarah politely introducing herself and inviting me to hang out that weekend. I was so excited! From that day on, we bonded over boys, pledging Delta Zeta, shopping, and sushi! All the typical college girl essentials of course! Instantly, I was aware of her drive, determination, and diligence. Sarah studied hard in her education classes and still managed to become the president of our sorority: an enormous undertaking.
After college she went on to pursue her passion as a teacher and worked tirelessly to hone her craft. Her dedication to her students and love for her profession is admirable. We reconnected right when she became a mommy. I knew that she would assume this role seamlessly and passionately like everything else in her life. She is extremely hands on and her beautiful kids, Jackson and Ella, are blessed to have her as their mommy. Trips to the farm, doughnut runs, weekend excursions, baseball, and dance are just a few of the many adventures of #littlejandlittlee. Every day of fun is mapped out to perfection. Boring is never an option for Sarah. Seeing her photos on Facebook and watching her videos makes me crave childhood all over again. Is it possible to be reincarnated as a Goldberg child?!
While giving her heart and soul to her teaching career for 13 years, her journey changed it’s focus after the arrival of her children. On top of her substantial and challenging obligations at home and at work, she added one more component to her very full plate: Rodan and Fields. Innocently hoping to make a few extra dollars and attain some free skin care products, Rodan and Fields became so much more.
Sarah is proud to be working for a company whose products exemplify quality and results. Witnessing a client who has struggled with acne for years transform their skin with the proper Rodan and Fields regiment is certainly fulfilling and rewarding. R &F became more than just a small business venture but a gift. It has awarded her an additional income, and after some initial hustle and bustle, complete independent freedom. Can you believe she has actually been able to resign from her full time teaching position. She is now privileged enough to stay at home with her babies everyday all because of R&F!
I admire her drive and consistency. She shares her knowledge and R&F expertise daily on social media. Her pictures and videos exude passion, happiness, and a mom paving her own financial journey. So many other women are now getting their most beautiful skin because of Sarah. Others are emerging from their own working “rut” and creating a better life for themselves and their families. I am witnessing the lavish vacations and extracurricular activities these hardworking women attain from R&F. It’s hard to believe selling skincare products can create so much financial autonomy but Sarah has confirmed its validity.
After meeting for coffee one day and venting about mom life and our businesses, Sarah asked me to help style her for an upcoming R&F event. I knew this would be fun. Sarah was such an easy and compliant client. She was open-minded and willing. We picked out so many trending pieces, such as a gingham shirt, a floral blazer, and my ultimate favorite: a leather pleated skirt. I especially loved going to her house and doing a try-on session. Nothing beats seeing your outfit suggestions come to life in person. She certainly rocked these looks in Vegas!
I walk away feeling an even deeper and more profound connection to Sarah than our days at the Berg. Our similar goals and aspirations have bonded us. As we continue to balance the role of mom and entrepreneur simultaneously, I look forward to leaning and turning to Sarah for guidance, advice, and inspiration. With her perfect skin and my fashion sense, we are ready to take on the world!
