I have known Amy for over 17 years, dating back to USC’s Marshall School of Business when she was getting her MBA. Fight On! As her mentor, I knew she was not only a hard worker but most definitely special. A woman you knew would do great things in her career! She did just that and more!
With over 15 years of experience as a beauty executive for some of the most prestigious companies, including Smashbox and Kate Somerville, Amy Liu ventured out and started her own clean beauty company, Tower 28, two years ago. She has received several awards and acclaim already and I give her products a ringing endorsement! LOVE her lip glosses - so smooth and great colors!
Amy has been a long time eczema suffer and longed for a cosmetic brand that would work with her skin. Founding Tower 28, allowed her to create the first beauty brand that is 100% clean, vegan, and free of every known skin irritant. Listen in now!
Trish Healy is the incredible and creative CEO and Founder of WonderTent Parties. With over 20,000 followers on Instagram, WonderTent Parties is the original Wow worthy SleepOver, Glamping, dining, picnic, and movie experience.
Trish’s company was built from the ground up and offers one of a kind at-home experiences, probably best known for (and featured all over IG!!) their Signature SleepOver and Glamping experiences. Trish has a true talent for bringing luxury level events to people’s homes, creating experiences for them to make lifelong memories with family and friends.
But the best part is how WonderTents came to be. Years ago, when Trish and her husband met a gorgeous 12-year-old girl, Celia, through a program called Kidsave (which helps connect teenagers in foster care with potential foster parents), their lives changed forever. Later that year, as Trish’s family shared their first Christmas together, Celia wished for two things – to have her very first sleepover with friends and to be adopted. Trish figured if she was going to give Celia her very first sleepover, she was going to make sure it was one to remember.
And in creating that memorable experience for Celia and her friends, WonderTent Parties was born in 2017. Listen more about her story here!
Hopefully these curated products motivate you to treat yourself! I know I love them. How did they do it? Listen now to these amazing unique stories that led them on a path to where they are.
Be well. Do well.
All my best,
