How to build a billion-dollar company in 5 years, with Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty

Podcast cover

Today, it's not unusual to hear how beauty influencers are launching their own product lines and collaborations with makeup brands. But in 2013, when Huda's sisters first approached her with the idea to launch a beauty company...Huda resisted. She didn't think she had it in her to be an entrepreneur—even though she was already making waves as an influencer and content creator. After some persuasion, Huda tested the waters with a small eyelash collection that sold out within a week. Fast-forward to today, and Huda is the CEO and co-founder of Huda Beauty, a business that's now valued at more than $1 billion and has catapulted the beauty mogul to number 37 on the Forbes list of "America's Richest Self-Made Women." Tune in to hear Sophia and Huda chat about Huda Beauty's early days, trusting herself (and her sisters!), and why Huda still relies on her gut—more than anything—when it comes to business decisions.

When Anastasia Soare first stepped foot in Los Angeles, there was something about the reigning beauty trends of the time that baffled her. Everywhere, it seemed, women were over-plucking their eyebrows into skinny and—ahem—not-so-flattering shapes.

She began taking her brow-shaping expertise to the Hollywood A-list and eventually worked her way to grooming the brows of the one-and-only Oprah. Very quickly, things took off for her business and today, Anastasia is known as the "Eyebrow Queen" for having birthed an entirely new industry staple around eyebrows. On this week’s episode, Anastasia chats with Sophia about how she first sparked the idea for Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Picking out what clothes Hollywood’s A-listers wear can seem like the stuff of dreams. And—for the most part, it can be. 

But, as we learn in this episode of Girlboss Radio, behind every show-stopping moment on the red carpet is a lot of careful calculations and thought-planning. On this episode, Sophia chats with Karla Welch, one of the leading stylists in Hollywood. Karla has worked with many of the women who routinely make the best-dressed list (think: Ruth Negga, Olivia Wilde, Sarah Paulson, Tracee Ellis Ross among others). Her influence in fashion is so big that she’s been named one of the “most powerful stylists” by both the Hollywood Reporter and the New York Times. On this episode, Karla shares what it *really* means to be a stylist and how she’s branched out as a fashion entrepreneur to launch a styling app called Wishi. Plus, she offers tips on how to go about developing your own sense of style while crafting an image you’re proud of.

Making life-coaching and other "far-fetched" careers profitable, with Marie Forleo

Podcast cover
Read more

Today, it’s not uncommon to hear how highly successful entrepreneurs and C-level executives work with a fabulous life coach. But in the 90s, when Marie Forleo was in her early 20s, the practice of having someone “coach” you to be a better *you* was, well, a novel concept that required a lot of explaining. That didn’t stop Marie, though, from carving out a career path as a life coach—even if that meant a lot of bartending and waiting tables to make ends meet while she built her client roster. Now, Marie Forleo has built a thriving business that includes MarieTV, The Marie Forleo Podcast, the online business training program B-School and, a new book, Everything Is Figureoutable. Tune in to hear Marie and Sophia talk about what why it’s important for people to understand their own “risk-averseness.” Plus, find out Marie’s tips for how you can tell the difference between anxiety and a true gut check.
