The Recipe For Radiance

by kla on April 22, 2014

Screenshot 2014-04-19 20.06.27As women entrepreneurs we have a lot going on. Sometimes life gets in the way and we don’t take care of ourselves as we should. The most loving act that we can do for ourselves is to take care of ourselves. Feeling beautiful starts from the inside out.

 
My go-to girl for anything beauty related is Alexis Wolfer, founder of www.TheBeautyBean.com and author of the new book, “The Recipe For Radiance” (I highly recommend you get a copy of the book!).

 
Alexis is not only dubbed as “The DIY Queen” by People StyleWatch and “The Female Beauty MacGyver” by Access Hollywood but also has been seen on the Today Show, E!, The Doctors, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, WWD and Oprah.com — this woman is not only an incredible and inspirational business woman but has a finger on the pulse of all things beauty. When it comes to her own beauty routine, you’re just as likely to find her in the kitchen whipping up homemade beauty remedies with food as you are in her bathroom testing out all the latest produces on the market.

 
Check out my interview with Alexis Wolfer below:

 
Q: What inspired you to write this book?

 
A: I wanted to share with women all of my all-natural, quick and easy beauty secrets – those I’ve learned the hard way, those I’ve learned professionally, and those I’ve learned from some of my celebrity friends! The Recipe For Radiance is the intersection of all my professional and personal interests! It combines my passion for empowering women and my Master’s in Women’s Studies from Columbia University with my beauty editorial background and knowledge garnered while running TheBeautyBean.com for the last 5 years as well as my passion for healthy eating as a certified health coach and eating disorder survivor who saw all too well the power of food for beauty.

 
Q: What is your hope & mission for women who read The Recipe For Radiance?

 
A: My mission is for this book to help millions of women feel beautiful inside and out – and to do so by providing them with the quick, easy, eco-friendly and money-saving beauty recipes that have led People StyleWatch to dub me “The DIY Beauty Queeen” and Access Hollywood to coin me “The Female Beauty MacGyver”!

 
Q: Tell us one of your favorite easy-to-make recipes that promote beauty from within?

 
A: Ohhh, that’s so tough. Only the recipes I really loved (and that were easy!) made it into the book so this feels like having to pick a favorite child! But, the breakout-busting Creamy Butternut Squash Porridge (pg. 152) is insanely delicious, super-healthy, vegan and gluten-free too. And it’s great for fighting acne from the inside out! And I also love the anti-aging Chilled Thai Almond Butter Noodles (pg. 40) which are my healthy take on the amazing cold peanut noodles that I love at Asian restaurants. I make a big batch and keep it in my fridge for lunch on the go even when I’m tight on time.

 
Q: Being a successful entrepreneur, what are 3 “secrets to success” that have helped you in your journey?

 
A: First, trust your gut. Getting advice is great, data is wonderful but when it comes to making decisions I always trust my gut! Second, surround yourself with rockstars. And I don’t just mean people who have the business type you want. I mean everyone you interact with. Energy flows so surround yourself with some good vibes. Third, do what you love. Sure, a passion for your mission is great, but if you don’t like what you’re doing on a day-to-day basis, you won’t be happy. And happy people make successful entrepreneurs. And forth, (I know you said 3, but I could’t resist!), GIVE THANKS + GIVE BACK. To you community, to the people who helped you along the way and to budding entrepreneurs that need guidance and support. Write thank you notes, speak on panels for students, write back to that email from a college student who wants to pick your brain. You didn’t get where you are all on your own so be appreciative both of the people who helped get you there and mindful of the people who need your help.

 
Q: Your book includes beauty tips from some of your favorite celebrities, can you share 1 or 2 tips from the book?

 
A: You’re going to have the buy the book for the recipes ;) but I will tell you that there is a recipe for a facial mask to fight clogged pores and acne from model/actress Brooklyn Decker that I’ve tried and love! And Donna Karan Daily Green Juice is pretty fabulous!

 
In Alexis Wolfer’s latest book, The Recipe For Radiance you will find:

 
•    67 insanely delicious and easy-to-make recipes that promote beauty from within!
•    65 ridiculously easy and effective topical homemade beauty remedies all using ingredients found in your kitchen!
•    Beauty tips from some of your favorite celebrities (including the homemade facial mask Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Brooklyn Decker uses to banish blemishes!)
•    Beauty tips and tricks from some of the industry’s best!

Do you have a side hustle while holding down another job? Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed out? Do you feel like you just can’t get ahead?

In my latest video below, I share 3 Secrets to Stop The Side Hustle Burnout!

Many of the clients that I work with are working 1-2 jobs while building their business (or what I like to call their side hustle). A lot of them are feeling like they are giving too much of their time and energy to their “other jobs” and are not spending the time and energy that they want on their businesses.

Feelings of overwhelm + not having fun + feeling stressed out + fulfilling the demands of everyone else  + not taking care of yourself = The Side Hustle Burnout.

I can totally relate to this issues as I myself have built a business  along side working another job. At one point I was totally burnt out, tired all the time and had no fun in my life. I just couldn’t do it all. I learned very quickly how to hustle with flow and become productive while living a life that I love and eliminate burnout all together.

Your time is valuable especially when you are building a business and holding down another job amongst all the other things you have going on.

I want to share with you the 3 tips that you can implement starting today to avoid the side hustle burnout.

Tip #1 – Purposely Plan
Tip #2 – Rest. Relax. Restore.
Tip #3 – It’s OK to say NO & Get Help

Check out the video below:


I would love to hear your comments on how YOU avoid The Side Hustle Burnout!
