Catching Up With Laura Bangar

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

Nearly five years ago, we featured Laura Bangar’s transition from working at a corporate bank job to running her own thriving Rodan + Fields business. Now an RF X Circle achiever on a team with each of her five siblings, Laura says the opportunity has provided her family with the freedom to determine their own success. “Being able to do this [business] with my family has been amazing. There are millions of ways it’s changed our lives, but the most important part has been how it allows us to be present, do what we’re passionate about and not be bound by a clock.”

It was the birth of her eldest daughter that propelled Laura to jump into the opportunity. “I never grew up wanting to be a stay-at-home mom, but once I had my baby, everything changed. I saw that I could make a difference [with my business] while still being a present mother and wife.” After dedicating herself to her business, she understood how she could help guide others towards their own success. “This opportunity is specific to each person – what they want out of it is going to look different. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of sharing it. There are millions of others in the same position I was in seven years ago that just need a chance [to build something]. They don’t lack a work ethic; they’re just lacking an opportunity. I feel like I have that answer for so many people.”

Now a mother of four, Laura continues to actively work her business while making a commitment to live in the present with her family. “I write a letter to each of my children at the end of every day, about things that we’ve all done together. If I was working a full-time [corporate] job, I wouldn’t have those memories because I’d be gone until five or six o’clock.” Along with spending time with their children, Laura and her husband use the freedom provided by her business to support their ministry and give to foundations building orphanages around the world. “[My goal] is to be able to help who I need to help each day, love who I need to love and show up for who I need to show up for.”

Advice:

“Find your WHY and don’t give up on it. People sign up and are so excited, then they get some negative feedback and just stop. That’s the worst thing you can do – to worry about what other people think. Turn the opinions of others off and stick to your WHY, because it’s so important. It’s important enough to make you want to do this, so let it drive you and keep you motivated. Give it your all, and in five to ten years you won’t look back and think ‘what if?’”
