Based in Seattle, Brynaea Gabriel and Austin Trefts created a subscription box company from the ground up. I found these two on Instagram, and what caught my eye at first was the branding. See New Skincare looks like a luxury skincare brand that has been around for at least 10 years. Although I was convinced this was a company that had a corporation behind them, their eye catching visuals made me take a look at their website, where I found that the founders are both in their 20s. Since the start of their company in 2018 they’ve been able to live in Asia and ended their first year by donating over $30,000 to Dress for Success. In this episode they break down the beauty industry, starting a skincare business, pitching to hundreds of companies in Thailand, and more.Timecodes:1:42 | Deciding what kind of business to start and a trip to Ulta 3:42 | Reasons for using a subscription box model and focusing on one brand at a time 7:20 | Traveling to Asia and pitching to hundreds of companies 10:10 | Getting lost on the way to their first meeting in Thailand and international business tips 17:02 | Creating a unique brand and importance of being genuine 19:03 | Securing an investor two days before their payments were due 21:45 | Dress for Success and the importance of fulfilling partnerships 24:28 | Keeping emotionally stable through years of work and working in your passion 28:09 | What’s next for See New and creating an impactful brand name Social: Business Instagram: @seenewskincareTwitter and Instagram: @ggotitdoneWebsite:

Are you happy or are you suffering? You have control over your mind and your thoughts, and truly working on these five agreements will help change your entire mindset and how you operate on a daily basis. I can 100% say that The 5th agreement by Don Miguel Ruiz and Don Jose Ruiz changed the last part of 2019 for me, and with 2020 around the corner it’s not too late to permanently change your mindset past the initial high of the new year. Once your mindset changes, whatever goals you have for 2020 will be so much easier to complete because you’ll completely stop worrying about what other people think and won’t let your own thoughts hold you back.
