I’ve always found successful women in business so inspiring and I love hearing their stories no matter what industry they’re in because you can hear the passion in their voice and often it’s their passion that gets them started, helps them overcome obstacles, motivates them to do what they love and is a huge part of their success.
I am lucky to know some amazing women in business with great style to boot that I would like to profile. I hope that you find their stories inspiring as much as I do.
Today I would like to share with you Jodie King who owns and runs Skin Clinic Blyss in Randwick. I first met Jodie in August this year and she has been looking after my skin ever since. On my first visit to Skin Clinic Blyss, Jodie did a Visia skin analysis and I was shocked to see my pigmentation and the damage that growing up in Australia with fair skin has created. Jodie assured me that it can be treated over time with laser and the right products and my skin journey at Skin Clinic Blyss began. Jodie is also treating my acne scarring and fine lines and I'm half way through my treatment. (I will show you the final results once it's all done.)
I love going to Skin Clinic Blyss because it's a beautiful clinic and everyone is so lovely especially Jodie. I love hearing how she has had the business for over 20 years which is a huge achievement and inspiring for fellow #girlbosses.
