Very few people are happy to find themselves out of a job, especially in today’s economy, but in 2003 when Rhoda Keith—now the owner of Skin to Adohr in Rocklin, California—was let go from her job as an auditor for a telecommunications company, she felt relieved.
“I was increasingly unhappy with my position in the corporate world and felt as if I wasn’t making any sort of difference at all. But my side gig was as a cosmetics consultant, and doing those home parties and working with people on the weekends was something that made me feel really good,” Keith explains.
Rolling with that feeling, she fearlessly took her interest in skin care to the next level. “I went to esthetic school, and I haven’t looked back,” she says.
