I can't tell you enough how painful it can be when someone just copies your business, any aspect of it. Anything that you put your hard effort and passion into that just gets nabbed by another person to use for their own benefit? I mean, if you've gone through it you know, it sucks. But it's not the end of the world. Take it from me, I've been there countless times. I've been hurt but people I barely knew and people that were really close to me. I've been hurt by people I thought I could trust. It all sucks.
But I, and my business, have survived! And I guarantee that there are people reading this that are nodding their heads along like "Yup, Sheila's right again. Been there, done that. But I made it out." So, in this episode, I'm going to talk all about what you...

But don't worry! My good friend microblader and educator, Sandi Jones of Couture Brows, and I are here to teach you how you can not be basic and help you become the beauty business boss of your dreams.
Creating a successful beauty business is hard but it's even harder when you're just doing the same thing as everybody else. There are a lot of us out there, right? You need to help yourself stand out. You need to be, well, not basic.
That's why Sandi and I teamed up for this episode.
In this podcast, we're gonna break down all the tips for not being basic:
So, are you ready to take your beauty business to the next level and learn how to be not basic? We've got your...
Have you ever been accused of being too much? Have you had people tell you that you need to tone it down or be quiet? It hurts doesn't it? It's really painful.
Maybe you're not entirely sure where that feeling comes from. I know, personally, I've had to do a lot of digging to figure out where it all started. For a lot of us, especially as women, it's super common to be told that you're taking up too much space, that you're too loud, that you're too emotional, that you're too much. So we shrink in on ourselves, right? We start to make ourselves small.
Here's the thing, you have to unpack that feeling and you have to start to unshrink yourself. You're trying to be a successful boss babe, right? You can't do that when you're feeling small. When you're afraid to be loud and proud and assert...
Don't worry, babe. You're not alone. People don't often talk about the painful side of achieving success, of that journey to your dreams. It's a hard journey, no doubt, and it doesn't ever really end. You're always reaching for something new, you know? If you're an entrepreneur, you're probably never satisfied with staying in one place. So it's a constant painful journey.
Yes, it's worth it. Yes, success is sweet. But that doesn't mean the path there isn't tough. And today we're really going to get into that. Other people might not be comfortable talking about their struggles to success, they might just want to put out the perfect image of where they are now, but you guys know I'm not about that. Definitely not here on Pretty Rich Podcast. We get into...
Do you maybe just want to take a moment, pause, and reread that? Let it settle?
Okay? Yeah. That's a direct quote from this episode's guest, Carla Ricciardone. You're gonna want to buckle yourself up for this one because it's jam-packed with life-changing wisdom. I'm not even kidding, you guys. And if you listen to it, you'll totally get what I'm saying.
There's this quote that I like, "True confidence is being comfortable in your own skin," and every time I think about it, I think of Carla. I don't think I've ever met anyone that's as at peace with a) who she is and b) what happens to her. She's totally content with her life, no matter her battles. And it's infectious. Every time I'm with, every time I talk to her, I just feel...
