International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8. It’s a special day to recognize the social, economic and cultural achievements of women throughout the world and over time. It serves as a reminder of the struggles women have had to overcome throughout history and acts as a source of empowerment to many. International Women’s Day also aims to raise awareness for women’s equality by generating necessary conversations and supporting women-focused charities.
As an entirely female owned and operated business, we believe wholeheartedly in the power of women. We recognize the importance of supporting each other, which is why our mission is to help others feel empowered and confident in their own skin. To celebrate International Women’s Day 2022, Ana, the owner of Beauty Foundations Clinic, shares her story and advice as a female entrepreneur.
For those of your followers who aren’t familiar with your story, can you briefly explain how and why you started Beauty Foundations Clinic?
I had the vision to work on something that I not only love, but I wanted to empower women. I love to help women feel confident about themselves and love their reflection in the mirror.
What are some struggles that you had to overcome as a business owner?
The taboos around the beauty industry, on how it is perceived that if you like to take care of yourself, you are seen as vain. To me it’s more than that, it’s about having good mental health, helping you through transitions of life, it’s about confidence and self care.
What advice would you give to other women looking to chase their goals?
I will advise you to keep focus on what you are doing and your own goals, forget everyone else and focus on your own vision, keep your heart in the right place – you are your only competition.
