Want More Success? Take More Risks!
I don’t know about you, but some days I feel like I can take on the world—and others, not so much.
I know that without a doubt, no matter how I prepare or start my day, there will simply be days that I lack motivation. On these days, I’m OK with grinding through… or giving myself a little grace and vegging out on the couch for a show or two.
That said, for the most part I know that I it’s my job to SHOW UP for myself, my family and my team—and I love it. What I’ve found over the years is that the more risks I take, the bigger (and better) the return.
This could mean…
----> Tossing caution to the wind and signing up for my biggest speaking engagement YET!
----> Or, learning a new skill that will only improve my current coaching methods.
----> Or, it could even mean setting big, scary, hair, lofty goals for the year that I want to CRUSH.
It’s all about making BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL decisions that breaks open the space for you to grow.
But, hey, I know that’s sometimes easier said than done.
To help fuel your fire, here are some of my best tricks for setting the healthy growth mindset you’ll need to become a bada** business risk taker, too:
- Find time for YOU. If your life is anything like mine, then this probably means the morning hours are yours before the kids wake for school and the house gets CRAZY!
I know it may be hard at first, but try to wake at least an hour before the house does so you can stretch or workout, eat, sip your morning coffee and plan your day in peace. This could also be the time you meditate if that’s something you’ve found that works for you. THIS IS YOUR TIME… use it wisely.
- Once you’ve found a rhythm that works, stick to it! Consistency is essential for success. Will you have mornings that you hit the ‘snooze’ button five times? SURE… but get up the next day and get back at it.
- Be intentional with your actions. Everything you’re doing should have an end result that generates growth (and ideally, a profit). Don’t waste your time with activities (or people) that aren’t helping you to move the needle forward.
- GET INSPIRED! Surround yourself with people and things that motivate you to BE GREAT… to take those risks… AND FIND YOUR FREEDOM. For me, I continuously find new books that will prompt me into action.
So far, my three favorite books are:
Finally, accountability is ESSENTIAL for growth and success. You can say you’re going to DREAM BIGGER all you want… but if a colleague, coach or yourself doesn’t hold you accountable for it… than it’s just talk.

As a stay at home mom to 4 living in Southern California with one income, I needed to help supplement income. Although I had very little expectations of the business due to my prior experience with direct sales, I opted to jump in. I didn’t initially know Kristen, but quickly respected her work ethic and passion. Kristen graciously mentored and coached me, along with my growing team. Kristen has a unique mind capable of strategy and the ability to read numbers and statistics in a way that rapidly produces growth. Her previous career gives her an advantage at seeing and producing growth that leads to big results. I have loved receiving the benefits of getting a glimpse into her mind and learning a whole way of leveraging systems of this business to maximize its full potential. In under three years, I created a six-figure income that has allowed me to give back more than I had ever imagined and to build a dream home for my family.
Kristen leads by example and truly is passionate about her business. She has shown me it it possible to build from anywhere, while also living a life you love. I am forever thankful for the time she has been so gracious to give and continues to lavish on her team.

I started my business with Rodan + Fields because of my friendship and past experience working with Kristen. When deciding if I was going to start my own business with R+F, it was important to me to have a mentor that could help me create a successful business. Kristen has a long, proven track record of success in every step of her career and Rodan + Fields has been no different. I came to R+F with no experience in direct sales and Kristen mentored me from day one on how to grow my business, alongside my full-time career in software. Led by her example, I have been able to leave my corporate career behind and be home with my three children, all while still having my own business. I could not have done any of it without her.

In the beginning of 2015 I was in desperate need of a change. I was a full-time working mom in the financial industry, working long hours, add a long commute with two small children spending way too much time in day care. I felt I was failing in all areas of life… as a mom, as a wife and as an employee. I was lost and I needed to make a change but didn’t want to sacrifice time or money.
When Kristen and I first chatted, I had no idea how I would fit an at-home business into my already super busy schedule with work, family and play… but I knew I had to try because there really weren’t any other options. Kristen was able to be successful with a busy life and I knew she would be the perfect person to coach me how to do it all. Boy was I right! Kristen is an exceptional leader that always found the time to show me the way and help me grow and succeed! After 18 months of working with Kristen, I left my full-time job because I was able to match my corporate salary. A year later, I was able to double it and our life looks very different now, thanks to this opportunity and Kristen’s guidance. Our family is forever grateful!

Kristen is one of the most strategic, forward thinking and driven entrepreneurs that I’ve ever known. Since the day she made the decision to start her own business, I knew that she would be a force. Not only has she proven that to be true, she proves it on a daily basis.
When you work with Kristen, she motivates you to step up your game, pushes you to your full potential and inspires you to be more creative, because that is how she operates.
I am so thankful to have locked arms with her as a business partner and have loved watching every second of her journey into becoming the strong leader she is today.
