Tell us about yourself

I left my successful business in the beauty industry in Europe when moving to the United States 5 years ago. I brought along my impeccable work ethic, expertise, and patience for a well-done job.

Seeing people happy is what is driving me every single day. The joy, the excitement. To look at yourself in the mirror and think, Wow! I love what I see. I love me!…without the hassle of makeup.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Starting from ground zero and still successfully climbing to the top after five years. Building an amazing network of people that we all enjoy working with.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The hardest thing that comes with being a business owner is, by far, managing personal time and learning to say no. It’s also difficult dealing with the unknowns. Every day there will be new challenges and obstacles to deal with. Business is never predictable, no matter how prepared you are.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Work hard.
  2. Strong work ethics.
  3. Never give up.
