She Rebel Radio


Sep 26, 2019

Mary Lobo is the founder of Skinirvana, a skincare company born out of her desire to treat her own reactive skincare needs. Throughout her teens and early twenties, Mary suffered from eczema and rosacea. After trying to treat her condition with commercial skincare products and experiencing a severe reaction, Mary decided to create her own products made from pure plant and seed oils, which can now be found in many retail stores.

 

Mary joins me today to discuss how she built her business with perseverance, despite the lack of support she received from others. She shares why she pivoted from owning a skincare salon to offering handmade, natural skin care products and the challenges she faced while building her business and raising her daughter as a single mom. She explains why it’s important for entrepreneurs to avoid seeking external validation and why we need to be mindful of how we present ourselves and our businesses to others. She also explains how your confidence impacts your ability to take ownership of your success and how she reframed her mindset when sharing her successes with others.

 

 

 

“People that really support you and believe in you, they can almost see your future before you do. They see what you can attain - and they’re pushing you towards that.” - Mary Lobo
