When did you last review your purpose?
Is this something you do regularly, or only when something feels out-of-whack? When those out-of-whack moments happen, do you explore them further or dismiss them and continue on the same path?
Since the end of last year, I’ve had a niggly feeling about Geraldine Pierre Skin Care, but couldn’t quite put my finger on why these feelings were manifesting.
After all, I love helping you to discover your definition of beautiful and express it in a way that aligns with your personal style and tastes. I love creating simple and easy to use skin care products with an emotional and spiritual message attached to them. And I love sharing all my knowledge of skin care with you.
With Teressa Fisk’s guidance, I realised there was something I wasn’t admitting to myself: I miss the work I did during my corporate days.
And it’s kind of funny to admit to this. When entering Entrepreneurland, I wanted to start with a clean slate and “shed” my corporate experiences, including the knowledge and skills I acquired. So, I said farewell to the quality assurance/auditing/compliance work I used to do…and love.
But just like the uniqueness of your beauty (both inside and out) this work is a part of who I am and it was time to re-embrace it. If I didn’t, it would be similar to not embracing my hair, or the shape and size of my eyes, nose or mouth!
And since I’ve learned to accept my makeup-free look, it made sense to extend this authenticity and realness to being OK with the work I love doing, and not be concerned with what others think.
By acquainting the “corporate me” with the “Entrepreneur me,” I now offer cosmetic regulatory services to Australian beauty startups.
