Katya Bodiscomassink – For the First Time

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Thursday, March 15th, 2018

As a dedicated wife and mom to three young children, Katya Bodiscomassink relished the opportunity to stay home and enjoy a major life milestone. “My primary goal was to raise my family. That’s what the women in my family have done exclusively for generations. I was the first woman in my family to serve in the military and to graduate college, and I felt thankful for the opportunity to follow in their footsteps and be a stay-at-home mom.” When she found Rodan + Fields, Katya learned that she had the opportunity to have the best of both worlds — a passion-driven career and a well-balanced family life.

Finding her way

In 2012, Katya’s family felt the financial stress of living on a single income, and she felt a quiet longing to work toward something again. “All of my energy was focused on raising my family, but in reality, I still had big goals and aspirations. I wanted the opportunity to work from home and the freedom to challenge myself when I chose, with the hope that my efforts would help us find a better balance.” Kate Johns, a fellow Coast Guard Academy classmate, posted an R+F giveaway that caught her attention. That first mini facial opened the door to a life-changing opportunity. Katya tried the products and was so impressed that she enrolled as an Independent Consultant the very next morning.

Following Kate’s lead and working 10-15 hours per week, Katya became the first female entrepreneur in her family. Initially, she aimed to earn back the cost of her business kit. “Erik supported my choice to start my own business from day one, and within 45 days we saw a return on my investment. I’m really grateful because without his support it would have been much harder to start my own business! My paycheck was growing, and so was my belief in my decision to join Rodan + Fields.”

The turning point

Katya’s biggest concern at this point was freeing herself from self-doubt. “Though I saw some initial success, I still wasn’t sure I had the ability to impact others. I didn’t think I had it in me to be an entrepreneur. But when I attended the 2013 Convention in Dallas and met other successful women just like myself, I finally understood. I was inspired by the stories of other Independent Consultants who didn’t limit themselves. I came home with a renewed passion for the Company and a belief in myself I never had before.” After this lightbulb moment, Katya dedicated herself to having real conversations and building real relationships. She achieved Level V three months later.

Katya soon started reaching even bigger goals. “A bit of extra income each month for our family was huge. Covering our mortgage payment each month was huge. Using one of my paychecks for our first real family vacation was huge. But even then, my business just continued to grow! I was able to build my business around my children while keeping their schedules consistent. And what means the most to me is that when we finally felt more financially stable, we were able to welcome a third baby into our family.”

Priceless

Katya feels that working with Team Inspire is a rewarding way for her to give back. “I’m so thankful for every Customer and every person on our team across the world, and for the technology that brings us together. Giving back and serving others is what I love most. That’s truly my passion. Looking forward, I dream of helping my team members achieve their goals. I also dream of achieving our team Lexus because to me that’s just a symbol of team-wide success.”

Looking back at her first few years as an Independent Consultant, Katya feels she discovered how to truly have it all. “I can have a career that I love, that impacts others, and that I’m proud of — and yet I can still be there for my family. Before joining Rodan + Fields, I really felt like you had to pick one or the other. I didn’t think you could have both. R+F gave me the opportunity to do something that I was truly proud of.” Her parents, who always inspired Katya’s strong work ethic, are brimming with pride at all their daughter continues to accomplish.

The best part

Katya hopes to lead by example, showing others that following your intuition can have surprising and life-changing results. “I’ve already received so many more opportunities than ever existed for my parents — and now with my R+F business, I have the freedom to make an income where and when I choose, to make an impact in people’s lives, and to work on my own terms. Before I started my business, I didn’t know that option existed. Now I dream of building a sustainable business that my husband, children and community will benefit from far into the future.”
