What it’s like to work for Rodan + Fields as an Independent Contractor
As you know I’ve been sharing lately about How Anyone Can Successfully Work From Home and since my mega-post was getting MEGA huge I decided to start running additional posts to give you even more details on all the different options there are available! I hope you enjoy and find the perfect fit for you and your family!
Today we’re learning what it’s really like to work for Rodan + Fields from Amy Narron!
I first learned of Rodan + Fields from a good friend who just happened to message me right at a time in my life when I was faced to go back to work and put my 2 little ones, then 5 and 1, into daycare. It was my goal to find a job that I could work from home so I was open to learning more about the company although direct sales was not on my radar at the time. But, as soon as I learned that I could partner with the Doctors who created Proactiv and saw the amazing before and after pictures, I knew that God had placed this opportunity in my lap for a reason. I started my Rodan + Fields business shortly after and have truly loved every minute of it!
Now is the time to join this company because we are on the verge of launching internationally, first into Canada and then into Japan. Also, a new product, Redefine Acute Care, which is proprietary to Rodan + Fields just launched. The results are amazing and it is a complete game changer for the anti-aging skin care market.

How Long Have You Been With the Company?
Tell us a little about your company, and why someone would want to sign on!
Creators of Proactiv, the acne solution, and world-renowned dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields founded Rodan + Fields as a way to treat skincare issues such as sensitive skin, adult acne, sun damage and the #1 issue that everyone deals with; aging skin.
The company originally launched the product in high-end department stores but decided to pull the products and move into a direct sales business model when they realized that most of their customers were purchasing products after seeing their friends’ amazing results. Moving the business model into a direct sales channel has allowed Rodan + Fields to empower women and men to create a business of their own and personal wealth on their own terms. It is the Doctors’ goal to create a 100+ year old company that will leave a legacy for all those involved and their families.
Rodan + Fields has received many accolades including the 2010 Rising Star by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) for its dedication to achieving a high standard of excellence in business operations, and awarded numerous awards for business campaigns and products, Rodan + Fields is the anti-aging company to watch.
Rodan + Fields also receives more free press than all other direct sales companies combined and has been featured in magazines like Elle, Allure, “”O””, and Fortune as well as on national TV shows such as The Today Show and Ellen.
What Are The Start Up Costs? Are there any stocking/ordering requirements? What about maintenance costs (do you have to buy catalogs/website fees/etc)
To start your Rodan + Fields business, you can purchase a business portfolio for $45 or purchase a business kit of product at a 50% off discount. The business kits range in price from $395 to $995. Whether or not you choose to purchase a business kit or not, you will receive an abundance of training to get your business off to a strong start. Also, all kits come with a 60 day money back guarantee (less shipping) and the business portfolio is returnable up to a year after purchase.
The Rodan + Fields business model is completely e-commerce so there is absolutely no inventory to stock or ordering requirements. You may choose to purchase product for yourself at a discount but that is completely up to you. In fact, some sign on as a consultant only to take advantage of the consultant discount (50% off the products in the business kit, 25% off all other orders).
There are no required maintenance costs. You may purchase catalogs, business cards, etc if you like but many of the tools you need to run your business are provided to you online via apps such as the virtual online catalog . You may also choose to have two websites (one for products and one for the business opportunity) at a fee of $25 per month but, again, this is optional.
How long did it take you to re-coup your sign up costs and begin to make a profit?
I started earning a commission the very first day I signed up and earned back my initial investment in less than 3 months. The company has a generous Fast Start bonus program that will help you earn your investment back quickly.
What do your job duties include?
My job consists of helping others. Whether it be a phone consultation with someone who is interested in learning more about the products, a coffee meeting with someone interested in joining the business, or helping my team of consultants grow their businesses. My passion in life is to help others better their lives and, with Rodan + Fields, I am able to fulfill my passion. It also allows me the time freedom to volunteer at my daughters’ school and at our church
What is the most someone you personally know makes?
The highest earners in the company that I know personally make 6 figures per month.
How much can someone just starting out expect to make?
I know it sounds cliche but you truly get out of your business what you put into it. I know many leaders in the company who started quickly and their commission checks grew quickly. To give you an accurate idea of the earning potential with this company, please take a look at the income disclosure statement
What is your favorite part of working for this company?
I love everything about this company so it is hard to pick just one! I would have to say that my favorite part is helping my team of consultants achieve success. Nothing makes my heart happier than a story of what others have been able to accomplish via their earnings with Rodan + Fields. If you want to read a few of these “feel good” stories, check out this blog.
What is the most challenging part of working for this company?
I find it most challenging to set office hours! I have so much fun working this business that I have a hard time shutting it off to tackle other “not-so-fun” tasks (such as laundry and dishes…boring!).
Are you provided with adequate training and support? How is their customer service?
Yes, there is an abundance of training and support from everyone in the company! This includes the corporate team as well as top leaders. I enjoy the weekly training calls from top leaders the most because they lay out a simple action plan to achieve true success.
Any final thoughts/things someone looking to apply/get started should know?
My best advice is don’t over think this opportunity. Drs. Rodan and Fields have provided entrepreneurs with a well-established, highly acclaimed brand to lock arms with. If you are even considering joining this business, jump in with both feet. My only regret with this company is that I didn’t join sooner!
Where can they get started?
Please email email@example.com or call me at 252.723.0642. I like to speak with each prospective consultant before they join to make sure that this business opportunity is the right fit for them.
