This is the first of my monthly success blog posts. I am starting with a book review of: How to be an overnight success by Maria Hatzistefanis.
The book is written by the founder and CEO of Rodial (also Nip + Fab). The book is a great read for anyone interested in the fashion/beauty industry. I particularly liked the top tips after each chapter that focuses on a different element of the business from creating a buzz to how to ace Instagram and social media.
Maria believes “You are not born an entrepreneur. It’s a skill that you learn along the way.” It’s an excellent conversational book and I think anyone who is interested in business would find the book interesting and informative. Not only does it cover parts of the beauty business struggles but also balancing lifestyle and making sure that it doesn’t get on top of you. This is the reason why this book is so fantastic; its for a modern day entrepreneur that lives in the world of social media and the daily pressures of emails being on your phone 24/7!! I would read this book again just for the top tips.
I recently tried a Rodial product and added to my Nip + Fab collection… I started reading the book and didn’t realize that some of the skincare products I love like the shimmer leg fix from Nip + Fab was created by Maria; and I was reading her book!! The Rodial cleansing balm is such a sophisticated product; it comes in a beautiful yellow bottle. It feels like vaseline when you first put it on then once it touches water it turns into a lovely milky toner. It contains lots of wonderful ingredients that you can read here on the ASOS website… but I just love how it feels on my skin and it is so great in the mornings to wake up and brighten my skin!
To conclude… I really recommend giving this book a read, its not too long and straight to the point, it was actually quite hard to put down once I started! But a great first book to start off my inspiration monthly posts! Oh also if you haven’t already seen it click here to see my new blog video! Thanks my lovelies, enjoy the rest of your week and speak soon xxx
