Today’s episode is with Nylsa Shivers, owner of Wholehearted Goods Co. and the proud distributor of Erin’s Faces products in Texas! After a successful career as an account executive at Clinique, Nylsa started her own clean beauty business and is also raising five beautiful children.
Nylsa talks about her Mexican-Peruvian ethnic background, what her childhood was like as the child of struggling parents, how being raised in a low-income family affected her relationship with money and food, and the hard truth behind her drive to be the best at everything she did. But, after making her way out of emotional incest and a dysfunctional home environment, she suffered from low-self esteem and found her worth in her work. Nylsa shares how God's grace ended up saving her from a performance-driven life and mindset and when she finally discovered that her value as a human being was about who she was, not what she achieved. Joining in, listeners will also hear her talk about fostering and adoption, racial bias, and how she learned to love other people, regardless of where they are at.
Our email today (43:40) is all about the difference between tinted moisturizer and foundation. While there are pros and cons to both, Erin explains that it comes down to what works best for you. For tips on getting a dewy versus a matte finish, be sure to tune in!
