41: Season One Recap



In today’s episode I am recapping my very first season of podcasting. I really pushed myself with this passion project. I went out of my comfort zone to create The Beauty Debut Podcast, and so glad I did. I learned so much about myself, the industry, podcasting and so much more which I get into today.

When I first launched the show, I was the VP of a clean beauty brand, then the pandemic happened and for the first time I found myself on unemployment. This podcast saved my mental health and kept my spirits high, as everyone, especially for us in the beauty industry suffered a huge hit.

We have had to learn how to pivot and find a new peace and new normal within our passions that were taken away from us. We had to find a new way for us to channel our creativity. For me, it was showcasing others and their stories.

I’ve spent over 25 years in the beauty industry and the last 10 years in professional sales for skincare and makeup before launching this show. I wanted to create and record episodes for both the spa and salon professionals.

I wanted this podcast to bring you behind the scenes to get a look at what it’s like to work in the beauty industry…The Good, The Bad and the Catty.

This first season was full of conversations with the women and men that work in the world of beauty, successful entrepreneurs, sales leaders, medical professionals, and wellness professionals. I cannot wait for you to hear what I have in store for Season Two.

I was able to create several series as well. Episodes that highlighted women owned businesses, inner beauty, Latinas in the beauty industry, menopause, micro-episodes, and products and services that I absolutely love.

I am currently embracing all the changes. One of them being my grey hair and becoming part of the #silversisters community on Instagram. Another being a pro-age advocate. Really helping to normalize it all, while I do love my Botox, I also love reality. It is where I live and thrive, being the truest version of myself.

Season Two will be back shortly. In the meantime, I want you to remember that no matter where you are in your career journey, it is never too late to make your debut…

Also, I would love to stay connected over on Instagram. My link is below.

Wishing you a wonderful 2021 and I will talk to you again soon.

37: THE TRUTH BEHIND CBD AND FEMALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP WITH HANNAH DUNCAN OF WELL CBD



Today I am talking with Hannah Duncan, Founder of WELL Products, for an episode I recorded for the Latinas In Beauty Series.

Tune in today to hear how Hannah’s journey of entrepreneurship began. From radio, to marketing to esthetics, and CBD. What a story!

Hannah also shares what it is like being female and Latina in this male dominated industry.

We also get to learn about her line. The CBD teas, the essential oils, to the serums and oils. So good, as I have tried them all.

From building brands to mindset and inner work to what to look for in your CBD, we are getting all the info on this episode.

WELL Products was founded by Hannah Duncan, a prominent figure in the Spa Industry for over 15 years.  Hannah specializes in working with clean products, with effective ingredients, that fit well within the Spa and Resort World.

In 2018, as CBD began to be a larger discussion, Hannah began searching for a brand that could fulfill the needs of the hundreds of massage therapists that she works with.

What she found was an industry that was lacking.  Lacking in quality packaging, reliable sourcing, and efficacy.  So, she decided to turn back to her roots of manufacturing and get it done.

Hannah has infused each of the products with their own essential oils such as Lavender, Lemongrass, and Tea Tree – further suiting the Spa and Wellness Industry.

All Well Products are made of Clean Ingredients, Vegan, Cruelty Free, Non-GMO, and Gluten Free.

35: LAW OF ATTRACTION WITH ANNA GARCIA



I have always been fascinated by the law of attraction. Today I am so excited to share the incredible conversation I had with Anna Garcia for my new Inner Beauty Series.

Anna is a Law of Attraction Coach, based in Sydney Australia and she has been coaching people around the world since 2011.

She helps people align their thoughts with their desires, removing contradictory blocks so they can manifest a fulfilling life and have more joy and fun in the journey.

Anna also connects people back to their infinite power within by teaching a process of self-love.

She became interested in Universal laws when she was put into remission her illness Lupus using mind processes.

Today we touch on so many key factors and components of the law of attraction you will really appreciate.

How Anna became a Law of Attraction Coach, missionaries, ran away, sickness, healing through imagination, and how to become a law of attraction coach.

How do we begin to believe in ourselves, understand the higher self, the two opinions, we are not what we own, what others think of us, our achievements, we are infinite intelligence, the process of self-love through self-talk, and connecting back to our higher self.

Overcoming fear and letting go of ego, symptoms of disconnection, opening the channel, and replacing the old model.
Squashing the nasty voice in our head, how to start the kinder dialogue, thanks for sharing, and repetition in the subconscious.

How does the law of attraction work, law of like attracts like. Thoughts that create feelings, sending signals, and attracts more experiences to continue the feeling.
Do vision boards really work? Anna believes, yes. They are a great way to focus on what we want vs what we don’t want. Giving ourselves permission to depart from desire vs reality.

We also discuss how we have to choose our power, our natural emotion guidance system, imagination and how our thoughts can actually affect how we age.

If you are into visualization, energy, mindset and the powers that be, you will really appreciate today’s show.
