Today, we are interviewing Erin Leale, CEO of Simple Elegance Skin Care. Simple Elegance Skin Care feels that consumers choosing natural and organic-based products is not a trend – but an essential factor in skincare, now and in the future.
Their commitment to you is to provide simple and elegant skincare products you can depend on and love.
Please tell us something about yourself.
I want to be an inspiration to others.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey?
I worked in the corporate world as a software consultant for 20+ years. I constantly traveled for work in the US – At times, it was good, and times it was not so good. I made great money, but the stress took a toll on my health and happiness. I lost my passion for my job – I used to love it. At that time, I was burned out, in low space, and another meeting with everyone screaming at each other – I got off the phone and decided – I don't want to do this anymore. I want to do something to help others. I want to do something I like and work with people who are fun and pleasant to work with. I started my LLC the next day – e:e Products LLC – Why e:e? It was 11:11 on my clock when I made my decision – and here I am today.
Who are your role models?
I love Coco Chanel's Story. Sara Blakely's Mastermind Class was so inspirational too. I have several others also – those are at the top. They created the life they wanted. I love that.
What inspires you?
Hard work. Nature and its beauty. Making goals and achieving them. Learning from my failures and knowing I can get past them.
Please tell us about your company.
E:e Products is the LLC – Simple Elegance Skin Care is my Skin Care company. I am the CEO. I researched several products during this venture – Natural Skin Care products were the best. I picked out the products after using them myself and testing with friends and family. My goal for our products is to be simple – elegance – and make you feel beautiful. It is not always about how my skin looks but a lot of how it feels. Our products do all of that and more.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work?
Facebook / Instagram – currently, my business page for FB is in the review. They need to verify if I own Simple Elegance Skin Care.
Looking back, what's one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
I wish I would have researched Social Media Marketing better before getting started. Coming from a world where I installed software, created processes and procedures – I was not very social media savvy.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
A lot of research – LOTS – Daily! I always think of process improvement – how can I make something better!
What keeps you going when things get tough?
Support from my Husband. When I'm feeling low – he keeps me going. I love to do giveaways of products and self-care promotion to make someone's day feels great! Also, when I think of how my days used to start before I started doing this full time. It is 100% exciting to get up and be my own boss. I love it!
Any message for our readers.
Always remember you do have a choice. Whether it is a job that sucks the life out of you, a bad relationship, or wanting to improve who you are – make a decision and commit your self to it. I went from making great money and being miserable daily – to not really missing the paycheck and looking for how my future is going to be. How I want it. My stress, anxiety, and depression are gone. I have some times when I doubt myself, but I have come this far – anyone can shape their life into what they desire.
How can people connect with you?
