Welcome to episode #41! In this episode I get to chat with the wonderful Bethel Jiricek. Bethel was a former paralegal before discovering her true passion. Now a mother of four and trained esthetician, Betherl once struggled to find a chemical-free cream to help with her son’s eczema. She took matters into her own hands, experimenting with approximately 100 or so different recipes before she found one that soothed his regular breakouts. As a result, Bethel channeled her passion for effective, natural products into the creation of affordable, natural and organic skin care. Today, that passion is know as Green Eyed Grace Professional skin care, and its comprehensive line of pure, all-natural products are sold in Northern Colorado boutiques as well as Natural Elements Skin Spa and in the online store.
Bethel is a great friend of mine and it was fun to be able to talk with her. We get to hear her early story of becoming a mom at 15 and many of the hardships faced on the way to launching her own product line and to where she is now with a wonderful family and thriving and growing business. Her perseverance in life and determination to create what was needed to help her children is truly inspirational!
I loved that she said her final lotion success came somewhere around batch number 86. This is such an important message for all of us. If you’re creating something… it’s not going to be perfect the first time. Keep going, keep trying, keep moving forward. It will all be worth it and all make sense at some point and you will be so glad you didn’t give up! Bethel says it best… don’t let your current situation define you!
