Growing up, I was just a girl from Del Rio, Texas who wanted to be Krystal Carrington.
I’m the youngest of two girls, and when my family moved up north to none other than DALLAS, TX when I was in high school, boy did I think that dream was about to come true! My mom was a hair stylist, and my dad was a Vice President for a phone company. They played in a country-western band on the weekends, so I grew up around good, old fashioned HARD WORK. But when I’d come home from school and turn on the TV, I always found myself completely captivated by shows like Charlie’s Angels, DALLAS, and DYNASTY. Little did I know that those shows were actually clues to the Robbie Page I am today.
“Clues? Clues to what?” you might be asking yourself.
Don’t worry, I’ll come back to that.
Life continued on after those TV shows where I first caught a VISION for my life were long off the air. Maybe you found this happen to you as well as you made your way through college, the work force, falling in love, and starting a family, but my life did not turn out like Krystal Carrington’s. I graduated from Texas A&M University (Gig ‘em, Aggies! Whoop!) with the full intention to teach. I taught for one year and started our family with the birth of our oldest son, Reagen. It was then and there that my husband, Brian, and I decided that I would stay home and raise our family. The dream of Krystal Carrington remained alive!
But I quickly found out that life has a way of preparing you for those big dreams that you don’t expect…
Between the birth of my sons - there is a 7 year gap between my oldest and our youngest, Riley - LIFE happened, and it happened BIG.
All in the span of 7 years:
-We filed for bankruptcy.
-We foreclosed on our home not once, but TWICE.
-Brian was laid off 6 times and traveled more days than he was home for work.
-I was a realtor, made Christmas ornaments with my neighbor, ran restaurants, ran a boot camp for women, led Bible studies at the church, and was pretty much everything from PTA to room mom at the school.
-We lost a child.
-We had to look at my children WAY too many times and say, “No, baby. Not today. Maybe another day,” to anything that they asked that would cost us money. It was gut-wrenching, and I had had enough.
This was not the life I signed up for.
It wasn’t until 2010 that Brian and I looked at ourselves and decided everything that we’d been through and experienced up to that point was our fault. But if that was true, we also decided that what was going to happen from that point on was going to be our fault, too. We decided that WE were the variable to everything that was separating us from where we found ourselves at that point and the dreams and life we KNEW were out there, waiting for us to achieve.
So we dug. And we dug some more. We found the best versions of ourselves and let it out!
Ten years later, because of all the blood, sweat, and tears that I HAD DECIDED to put into releasing the very best version of myself out for all the world to know, I built not one but TWO million dollar direct sales businesses and launched Robbie Page Enterprises (a business founded by a woman for WOMEN). Today, I see that Krystal Carrington life that felt at times to simply be only a dream. But that’s the funny thing about dreams: they are someone else’s reality that you just think is out of your reach. I am proof, my friend, that your biggest dreams are most definitely NOT out of reach.
I know that LIFE has happened to you, too. I know that you were once a little girl with big dreams. I know that you find yourself waking up some days thinking,
How did I get here?
This is why I wanted to start Robbie Page Enterprises. I meet way too many women EVERY DAY who have decided to shrink. Too many women have thrown away their clues to their dreams because of life. Too many women out there are walking through life alone because the world has shown us gossip, drama, and hurt more than it has shown us locking arms with women who are strong, encouraging, and truthful. Too many women in this world have decided to settle and think that this is as good as it’s going to get. Too many women are lions in a birdcage, just like I was, and can’t find their key to get out.
Girls, one thing I know to be true is that I don’t serve a God of favorites. If this can all be true for me, it can be true for you, too. There are so many clues in your life that are screaming out for the greatness buried deep inside of you.
I’d be honored to help you find them.
I did. You can, too.
Remember those clues I was talking about at the beginning?
This is where those come back in play as I promised.
Hindsight is 20/20, right? Looking back, I see now that those TV show women I was fascinated by had the very qualities that were inside of me, untapped. It was the lifestyle of Krystal that I was looking for, not to drip in diamonds (although that would be awesome as well). I wanted to leave a DYNASTY for my boys, not always having to say NO. I wanted to fight for people like Charlie’s Angels, not just have Farrah Fawcett’s hair. I wanted to live in the big city, be BOSS, and OWN what I did like the ladies in DALLAS. I wanted to fight for people. I wanted to create a lifestyle of EXPERIENCES for my boys.
That’s really what I dreamed about while I watched those shows. It was all inside of me. I just needed to figure out how to access those parts of me that were buried down deep under all the LIFE that had happened.
Now, let’s talk about YOU.
Did any of that sound familiar? Did you find yourself saying, “Oh yes, girl. I know how that is…” or “Yes, been there, done that. Now what?” That’s where I come in.
