This ep is just so fresh! We’re talking about business, essential oils, and natural beauty products with Cheryl Mitchell, founder and creator of Miss Doyle’s Soapery and the Inspire Bath & Body products that we’ve been swooning over for months now, ever since Inspire Bath came on as a podcast sponsor.
After surviving three failed business ventures, Cheryl has learned a lifetime’s worth of lessons — and in this ep, she doesn’t hold back on her advice for not only running a successful company, but doing so while maintaining a work/life balance. She also created a charity component for many of her products and finds philanthropy a powerful motivator.
But it’s not all business! We also get into the nitty-gritty of working with essential oils and how natural beauty products work. (She also recently wrote for us about how to use essential oils for health and emotional healing.)
Favorite advice from Cheryl in this ep:
Now, we talk a lot about Inspire Bath in this ep, but we also want to give the company a huge thank you for being such an amazing sponsor.
All Inspire Bath products (we love the deodorant spray and body lotion you see above) are all-natural, smell great and use simple ingredients to help with body odor — totally free of baking soda, aluminum, oil and parabens. We’ve been using it for months now and it works! If you’re looking for an all-natural beauty line that is good for your body and skin, this is IT. Plus! For every bottle purchased Inspire Bath donates one to help build and empower women and girls at shelters and interim homes at the YWCA in St. Joseph, Missouri, for their domestic shelter and home for women and families. It’s a win-win!
