Dreaming Bigger with Ashlynn Herren
Everyone gets their start in this business a different way.
For some, it’s by accident, after falling in love with the products.
For others, they’ve seen the success of others and crave it for themselves.
Commonly, it’s to take back control of their lives and step away from the 9-5 (kind of like me ).
Then for others, it’s to find the balance between a job they love and raising babies... also kind of like me.
And Ashlynn Herren knows a thing or two about raising babies… four to be exact.
You see, Ashlynn and her husband didn’t have the traditional “family plan” that many of us do. They desperately wanted a family of their own but with adoption as their last option, it was beginning to look bleak.
Until they got “the call” one day for their oldest son and everything changed—and changed BIG.
Not only did they welcome a new baby but Ashlynn quit her salaried corporate position ON THE SPOT. No second guesses... no weighing the pro’s and con’s… they had already decided that their now growing family was priority #1.
And with that went half of their household income.
AND THEN… came three more babies, one after another. With mounting international adoption loans, they’re hearts were certainly full but their pockets were not.
Ashlynn was a hustler, though. She learned how to make wedding cakes, sold things on online and dabbled in direct sales. She did whatever it took to help provide for their beautifully blended family.
But after Ashlynn wound up in the hospital for a life-saving surgery, she began to notice that she didn’t quite look like herself anymore. She never was much of a skincare product user but thought that maybe finding the perfect face wash was all she needed.
And let’s be honest… that fresh skin glow? It can move mountains.
Slowly, but surely, Ashlynn started using Rodan and Fields products and over time, began to fall in love with the company. She flirted with the idea—to herself only, of course—of joining but still had a bad taste in her mouth from the last flop in direct sales.
Surely, they’re all the same she reminded herself. Surely, she would spend all her time (and money) hosting parties to people that never bought. No thanks.
Except that Ashlynn couldn’t get the thought out of her head and finally approached her husband. His reaction? “You have to commit. You don’t have to be good at it but you have to go ALL IN.”
And so she did. After investing in one of the larger business kits, she started paying attention to the leaders in the company around her.
>> What they were saying about the products.
>> The tips they had for selling with ease.
>> How to build her confidence to stand apart.
Ashlynn and I instantly connected when we first me. She was sharp, coachable and inspiring. She had already made a promise to herself that failure was not an option—and it was my role to support and coach her to uphold that promise.
Due to her innately curious nature, she was always asking questions and challenging me to think outside the box as a leader, but above all, she trusted the system for success that I was teaching her.
She was getting it.
In handfuls of time she would work: when the babies slept, early in the morning before the house rose, or even during a 2AM feeding. It was on her schedule, at her convenience and before she knew it, business was growing and so was the interest from others. Quickly, her initial promise to herself began to have a ripple effect on her team—and their culture—and the results started speaking for themselves. She stayed on course, always believing in herself and this opportunity this business created for those touched by it.
Fast forward to today… those adoption loans? PAID.
Her income? TRIPLE what it was in her 50+ hour a week corporate position.
Her passion for the business? ON FIRE!
Now Ashlynn enjoys flexibility, freedom and the sound of eight excited feet running up and down the halls all day long. She has teams in three countries, runs her business from her phone and is continuously in awe of how this has transformed not just the life of her family—but that of her team, as well.
As she grew, they grew… and lives have been changed forever.
“I’m amazed at how this business can help ordinary people to do extraordinary things when they dare to see what’s possible.”
Are you ready to be the next success story?
As a stay at home mom to 4 living in Southern California with one income, I needed to help supplement income. Although I had very little expectations of the business due to my prior experience with direct sales, I opted to jump in. I didn’t initially know Kristen, but quickly respected her work ethic and passion. Kristen graciously mentored and coached me, along with my growing team. Kristen has a unique mind capable of strategy and the ability to read numbers and statistics in a way that rapidly produces growth. Her previous career gives her an advantage at seeing and producing growth that leads to big results. I have loved receiving the benefits of getting a glimpse into her mind and learning a whole way of leveraging systems of this business to maximize its full potential. In under three years, I created a six-figure income that has allowed me to give back more than I had ever imagined and to build a dream home for my family.
Kristen leads by example and truly is passionate about her business. She has shown me it it possible to build from anywhere, while also living a life you love. I am forever thankful for the time she has been so gracious to give and continues to lavish on her team.

I started my business with Rodan + Fields because of my friendship and past experience working with Kristen. When deciding if I was going to start my own business with R+F, it was important to me to have a mentor that could help me create a successful business. Kristen has a long, proven track record of success in every step of her career and Rodan + Fields has been no different. I came to R+F with no experience in direct sales and Kristen mentored me from day one on how to grow my business, alongside my full-time career in software. Led by her example, I have been able to leave my corporate career behind and be home with my three children, all while still having my own business. I could not have done any of it without her.

In the beginning of 2015 I was in desperate need of a change. I was a full-time working mom in the financial industry, working long hours, add a long commute with two small children spending way too much time in day care. I felt I was failing in all areas of life… as a mom, as a wife and as an employee. I was lost and I needed to make a change but didn’t want to sacrifice time or money.
When Kristen and I first chatted, I had no idea how I would fit an at-home business into my already super busy schedule with work, family and play… but I knew I had to try because there really weren’t any other options. Kristen was able to be successful with a busy life and I knew she would be the perfect person to coach me how to do it all. Boy was I right! Kristen is an exceptional leader that always found the time to show me the way and help me grow and succeed! After 18 months of working with Kristen, I left my full-time job because I was able to match my corporate salary. A year later, I was able to double it and our life looks very different now, thanks to this opportunity and Kristen’s guidance. Our family is forever grateful!

Kristen is one of the most strategic, forward thinking and driven entrepreneurs that I’ve ever known. Since the day she made the decision to start her own business, I knew that she would be a force. Not only has she proven that to be true, she proves it on a daily basis.
When you work with Kristen, she motivates you to step up your game, pushes you to your full potential and inspires you to be more creative, because that is how she operates.
I am so thankful to have locked arms with her as a business partner and have loved watching every second of her journey into becoming the strong leader she is today.
