Hi Lauren! Please present yourself and share a bit about your current work and beauty brand.
What inspired you to pursue your career in the beauty industry and how did you start your journey?
As a beauty entrepreneur, what was one of the most empowering experiences you’ve had in your career so far?
The most empowering aspect of running my own business are overcoming the daily challenges. You never know how much inner strength it takes to overcome the daily grind when you are running a business. I didn’t realize own my levels of creativity and passion that I had for my own ideas. If you can channel and follow through with your ideas that is the most empowering part of it all.
The beauty industry can be fiercely competitive and difficult to break into, can you share some challenges that you’ve faced and how do you stay grounded?
Thank you for sharing those encouraging words! What’s next on your journey to lovely (your future goals and aspirations)?
I am so excited for the future. I am very optimistic. I have so many projects that are all coming together in the next year. I know it will be a roller coaster but I am ready for the ride. Next year is the launch of LAUREN NAPIER BEAUTY’s third product in the collection. I am so proud to have created a collection of products designed to make people feel comfortable in their own skin and the third product rounds out the collection and will hopefully be even more impactful to those experiencing the perils of their complexion.
That’s awesome, truly wish you the best! Where can we keep up with you online?
