Switching to clean beauty? Allow me to introduce my favorite clean beauty non toxic nail polish... Cote.

I LOVE clean beauty products! As such I have never liked getting my nails done due to all the toxins in traditional polish. Discovering Cote, has changed all that.

Today, I'm joined by a fellow clean beauty enthusiast Mary Lennon.

Mary Lennon and her business partner Leah Yari created côte to provide a safe, transparent, quality product and an elegant nail care experience that could be shared with their families and friends without worry. They set out to take the “toxins” out of the nail treatment experience; from the shop environment to the technician/guest interaction, to the actual products themselves. With that in mind, all of côte's polishes are created free of the major toxins and allergens that are often associated with nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, and gluten.

With the recent green beauty popularity surge and all the new natural beauty product lines being released these days—as well as celebrities like Emma Watson, Jessica Alba, and Gwyneth Paltrow publicly praising green beauty, it's hard to imagine that you haven't heard of or don't know what green beauty is. What you probably don't know is just how hard it is for independent green beauty brands to start and compete. There are any number of challenges that green beauty brands must over come that their synthetic counterparts don't always have to think about. In this episode, Serein, is joined by the founder of Belle Bar Organic, Tianna Bell.

Serein and Tianna, discuss the differences between green beauty and other types of products as well as the current state of women of color in the green beauty industry.

If you've ever walked through a parking garage alone late at night then you've probably felt at least a little worried about someone attacking you. Knowing self defense, specifically through Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a way to regain confidence and know that you are capable of defending yourself if God, forbid something were to happen. Brazilian jiu jitsu, is a grappling based martial art that creates an equal playing field between the aggressor and the person being attacked. It is universally understood to be the most effective form of self defense. Law enforcement officers and the US Military, are frequently trained in Brazilian jiu jitsu. 

In this episode we go over what is Brazilian jiu jitsu and how it can help with things such as bullying and self defense.

Holly Caplan has been in the medical device industry since 1997.  She learned soon into her career that prospering in the industry required adopting group values of the “dick clique” and membership in that clique would come with a battle – a battle to preserve personal and professional identity.

She writes about her experiences and shares it with women who are just entering  their careers or are in the throes of their success.  This book will shock, entertain, and inform.

HOLLY'S STORY...

I was born and raised in Louisiana. Born in New Orleans, and raised in Baton Rouge. Both great cities, each with so much to offer. Mardi Gras, LSU football, Saints football, Cajun food, music and wonderful southern hospitality. Although I’ve been in Texas for 23 years I still consider Louisiana my home.

In 1994 I got a sales rep position selling long distance services business to business. I thought it was the best job ever. This where I cut my teeth and learned to be aggressive. This role gave me the foundation to eventually find my way into the medical device industry, which is where I have spent the majority of my career.

The first part of my career in medical device was spent in sales, which was a blast. I was surrounded by young professionals who wanted to succeed and set the world on fire. After some time in sales I decided that I wanted to explore something different, so I earned a leadership role and became a manager. This is where it started to get real for me. Management is where I really experienced the male component of my career. I was the only woman in management for years. No one could have told me what to expect, because I don’t think anyone really knew. I went in naively thinking that certainly the old tired mores of men vs women had passed us by. Not so.

I went on to become successful, won top awards and poured my heart and soul into my team, but it was a tough road. I learned the behaviors of my male colleagues and engaged in the same for my own survival. I became unemotional, impatient, insensitive and incredibly competitive. I became a DICK.

My hope is that the topics on this website and content of my book will reach each of you and help you find your way to success and stay true to yourself along the way.
