Ep. 95: Is It Okay to Quit? Mindset Shift for a Crisis Economy with PMU Superstar Rose Prieto


Is it okay to quit?


You know what they say, “Quitters never win, winners never quit.”

What about right now, during the coronavirus pandemic, when we’ve all been forced to close our salons, shops, studios, etc.?

Do you feel like throwing in the towel? There’s a lot of people who won’t blame you for it. It’s the perfect “out…” or is it?

I was so excited to have Rose Prieto, fiery and warm hearted beauty boss babe with a long list to supply her resumé, on this episode to have a conversation with me about how to stay tough when the going gets tough.

In this episode, I talk about entrepreneurship in this coronavirus economy. Is it even there? How do I find it? Those questions and more are answered in this episode.

Opportunity and purpose are still there! I remind you of that in this episode and I even talk about how to remember your purpose and finding opportunity when you’re scared.

We get to know...

In case you need a reminder, power is never given to you, you just have to take it.

Stacy Tuschl shares with us her experience owning a small business during Coronavirus and how she is recession-proofing her business.


I wish I could say that I predicted this pandemic and was saving sitting down and talking with Stacy Tuschl for the podcast, but I didn't. It did, however, give me the guts to reach out to Stacy, finally, and say, "Girl, I need you! My tribe needs your expertise." You don't want to miss this one.

Ep. 92: Fears, Truths, and Ideas with Amanda Rose of @HYVEBeauty


Our time in lockdown has taught us many things. 

Leaders and business owners have really started to come together in a dark and uncertain time and we're witnessing great connections knitting together our community.


In this podcast, I replay a live I did with Amanda Rose of HYVE Beauty. She did this amazing thing where she brought together leaders and influencers of the permanent makeup industry and had them on her Instagram story to share their vulnerable moments with each other.

The idea was that each guest would share one fear, one truth, and one idea. It was a great experience and I'm so happy I get to share it with you today.


Here are the episode highlights:

‣‣  [14:07]  I start off with sharing my one fear with you. We talk about my mom and hustle culture.

‣‣  [16:15]  Do you feel like lockdown and Coronavirus have made you more aware of yourself and your habits?

Ep. 91: Pandemic? No Problem! Here's The Beauty Business Pivot You Need To Get Through!


This season is going to show us who the real leaders are.

Are you one of them?

How you show up during a time of crisis could really set you apart as a leader in the coming years and the ones can't hang on won't survive.

But that won't be you.

Stick with me, we're going to do this together!


A couple of weeks ago, if you had told me where we'd be today, I'd think you were totally crazy. If you had told me that in a matter of just a couple of weeks the whole WORLD would shut down and declare a global pandemic - I just wouldn't believe you. But we're here now. And, as terrible as it is, at some point, we just have to embrace where we are and make it work!

I know your business is struggling, mine is too. It's okay that you weren't prepared for this. Nobody was. But we can still survive. Not only that - we can thrive. In this episode, I talk about my own struggles as we go into lockdown, how I'm restructuring my business to survive during Coronavirus, and what you can...

And last but most definitely not the least is my best friend of 25 years, Julie, who was also basically our event planner and stage manager for Pretty Ambitious (oh! She's also the Pretty Rich Podcast editor. Fun fact. Okay.). 

If you’ve been following me on Instagram (which, if you’re not, hello! Do that right here), you know how obsessed I’ve been with Pretty Ambitious.

It was in the works for a year! A YEAR!

It started out as an idea in the...

Ep. 88: Can You Work with Friends?


If you've ever done a group project with friends for school or even if you've tried to plan going out with a group of friends with different types of personalities and schedules, etc., then you know that it can be a struggle to work with friends.


What about working. with. friends? Like, in a career?


In this episode of the Pretty Rich Podcast, my best friend of 25 years, Julie Barnett (no, seriously, you guys. We've been friends since we were like 11), and I talk about what it's like working with friends and if it's doable.

I'd like to start off by saying, yeah, I definitely think it's doable. I think you can work with friends.

And just like Julie and I talk about in this episode, that statement comes with a couple of conditions.

It really depends on the friend.

It also really depends on the job.


Side Note: did you know Julie edits the Pretty Rich Podcast? She's amazing!


How did we make it work? Or why does this work?

I have to say, it...

Ep. 87: How to Make Multiple 6 Figures in Your First Year of Business & Still Have a Life with Beauty Biz Mompreneurs The Beauty Mavens


Wait... so you mean I can be a literal BOSS BABE and still have a life??




I'm so excited to be having this conversation with Kristen de Oliveira and Madison Annis of The Beauty Mavens.

Even though we're in different parts of the country, we're different ethnicities, and we're from different backgrounds, we have different beauty focuses, there's so much we have in common.

What we have in common is the crushing.

The sacrifices that you need to make to be successful are unavoidable, and if you're experiencing a season of crushing right now, know that is not your residence. It's a stage.

A season of crushing isn't permanent ever. It's a necessary stage.

It's like an arrow that pulls you back. The further you pull it back and you put tension on that bow, the further it will fly.

Is there somebody out there who is being pulled back, and you feel like you can't be pulled back anymore? You may be thinking, "Oh, gosh. I didn't sign up for this. Why is...

Have you ever felt the overwhelming feeling of anxiety or even depression as an entrepreneur with the weight of your world on your shoulders? 


On this episode of the Pretty Rich Podcast, I have a pretty cool guest.

Anita Perry, CEO of Sugar & Sloth, joins me on the podcast, and we go in on mental health and using your artistry.

Now, Anita isn’t a permanent makeup artist, but she’s an illustrator (a darn good one if you ask me!).

We get into a discussion on how to use your artistry to help you heal from trauma and to help you cope with mental illness.

Anita’s amazing. She’s from the United Kingdom, and she’s just so lovable. You’ll love her too, especially after listening to this episode.

This episode is like an interview where I ask Anita a whole lot of questions about her and her life and her business, and it gets really honest about mental health. Not just about mental health, but even her experience with mental...
