Ep: 218 - Disrupting the Beauty Industry with Formula Botanica
Lorraine’s journey as an entrepreneur started in 2010, when she was watching the BBC’s Apprentice while nursing her newborn baby on the sofa. The candidates were making their own iPhone app and, slightly delirious from sleep deprivation (which didn’t end for another 6 years), Lorraine decided that if they could do it, so could she. Within a few years, she had quit her day job and built up a global multi-million pound empire, teaching online courses in organic skincare and haircare formulation.
Of course Lorraine’s success didn’t happen overnight. Many entrepreneurs often gloss over the hard work involved in building an online business. Rather than hiding the challenging truths involved in creating an empire, Lorraine wants to tell the stories involved with building a business that’s on a fast track to 8-figures. She wants to share her mantra of hard work, the beauty of perseverance and get the message out to more female entrepreneurs, who have a dream of creating something bigger than themselves, that it’s all within their reach.
Lorraine wants women entrepreneurs to keep going, cut through all of the noise, find their passion to drive forward, and give themselves the permission to be who they are, so we can collectively drive forward gender equality through female entrepreneurship and empowerment.
