What does your MomBoss business do for people?
I’m a skin specialist trained to give your skin whatever it needs to repair itself. Once the skin is balanced with what it lacks, the body can eliminate acne, reverse wrinkles, and other symptoms of aging. All facial treatments are customized for the client’s skin care goals and skin needs.
Why did you start this business? What motivates and drives you through the grind?
I developed a skin care line back in the 1990s that cleared acne and reversed wrinkles. I used to demonstrate the product on half the face. When the product was removed and the results were seen by the clients, many of them broke down in tears.
Very often, this leads to very personal stories that showed me they were suffering with low self-esteem. Seeing wrinkles disappear gave so many of them the confidence to improve their situations that ranged from leaving an abusive husband, finishing their education that got put on hold, and finally realizing they deserved better than to be on the back burner.
After having similar conversations with so many women, I felt a burning desire to open my own skin care practice.
Seeing a client come to life with a renewed confidence and self-worth is why I started my practice. I’m passionate about skin and helping my clients feel good about themselves by transforming their skin in a healthy, holistic way.
If you were a super hero, what would your super power be and why?
I would make everyone confident in their own skin. When they looked in the mirror, they would focus on their positive features instead of what they wanted to change.
What song do you crank up when you need a boost or are celebrating a business victory?
Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys and Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera.
What’s the best book you’ve read this year?
Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte (I’ve actually read this book several times). It teaches you how to have goals with soul.
We love to play business match maker. What area of your business could you use help with or person that our network can connect you to directly?
Although I bring over 20 years experience in natural healing and skin care, I’ve recently moved back to the area after being away for 26 years. I just opened this practice in June 2017. I don’t know that many people, so I’m doing my best to network and build relationships with people. I need help spreading my message.
What’s your favorite social media network for business and why?
Facebook because it’s really the only one I’m comfortable using so far.
If anything were possible, where do you see your company 1 year from now?
MV Skin Consulting is a holistic skin wellness studio focusing on skin correction for acne, age reversal, and unhealthy skin. I’m trained in Eastern, Western, and Integrated philosophies, so my technique is unique and gets amazing results with cases that don’t respond to traditional treatments. I also completed extensive training in oncology esthetics. I would like to expand my focus to burn victims in addition to acne, age reversal, and unhealthy skin. I’m currently the only skin expert trained this way, and I would love to be the client’s first phone call, rather than their last resort.
Ok, keeping it fun, what hidden talent do you have that people would be surprised to learn?
I love to cook, but I just can’t make myself follow a recipe. I refuse to measure the ingredients. I prefer the eyeball and taste method!
Anything else you would like us to know about your business?
Our skin is the largest organ of the body, it’s a detox organ. Lines, wrinkles, acne, and sun damage are all symptoms and our body’s way of trying to communicate to us that something is wrong. I’m trained to reset the body and the skin to its original function. Customization of professional treatments and the correct home care are critical for success.
