This month's Goddess is a super inspiring woman who is a mother, entrepreneur and business professor. She has created a simple, yet effective product that we all need in our lives: Natural deodorant. I think that her interview speaks for itself so without further adieu, here is Holly!
What inspired you to create your own business?
"I had tried so many brands of natural deodorant that did not work. So I created my own! I shared my Deodorant with family and friends, and since they loved it so much, I decided to start selling it."
There are only 4 ingredients - coconut oil, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and therapeutic grade essential oil."
Who is the most inspiring woman in your life and why?
"This is a tough one. There are so many women who inspire me, but I don’t look to one in particular. I’m all about supporting each other, lifting each other up, and staying out of the comparison game."
What is your favorite meal?
"Simple simple simple! Ha! I’d have to say that my favorite meal is salmon (crispy outside and tender inside), with lots of veggies and some sweet potato. And always avocado!"
What is your process in manifesting your dreams and your goals?
"I’m big on lists. Writing out steps, and executing. I am making a conscious effort to spent more time dreaming and manifesting, but I’m also in the thick of raising young boys (which is my priority most of my 24 hours in the day)."
What is your morning ritual?
"Kids! Haha! I love coffee before they wake. And a workout! I love to workout in the morning - it sets the tone for my day!"
How do you honor your feminine body?
"By always being true to myself, and prioritizing self care - mentally, physically, and spiritually."
Where do you find Bliss in your life?
"Usually in the small things. A moment with my family. A hot cup of coffee. On my yoga mat."
What does self-care mean to you?
"Everything haha. I make it a point on the daily to do something nice for myself. Sometimes it’s just a hot shower and my nighttime skin care routine, others times it’s my favorite chocolate, or time away alone or with a girlfriend."
If you could offer one piece of advice to women, what would it be?
"Learn who you are, what you want, and how to be confident in all that you do."
